AWRIZIS – “Rapid fire” interview
Hi, and welcome to Metal Maniack! Please tell us about your band and members history.
Greetings! We are Awrizis – hybrid metal band from the darkest place in Europe – Czech Republic. I founded this band in 2011 and there were a lot of changes in band line up – but what is important, we never give up. Basically all of members are involved in other bands here in Czech, so it is really good to have talented musicians in one band.
What do you think is your band main influences? How and at what age you got into metal?
Main idea of this band is, that there are no borders in our music. We like to combine extreme genres from death metal across black to doom metal. Freedom is the main reason for this band.
Of course we are influenced by old school stuff like Metallica, Slayer or Iron Maiden but also by some Swedish death metal scene like Hypocrisy, In Flames or At The Gates. I can say that main influence is quality metal, which we listen to for ages.
How about your band style. How you describe it for those who never listened to your band music?
We called it hybrid metal – combination of various extreme metal genres into one band. That is because we like different genres of metal. It doesn’t matter if is it modern core, groove, old school thrash. It has to be catchy and energy stuff.
Explain your band name and how you get it and tell us a little bit about your songs lyrics and messages.
There are many legends about word AWRIZIS – and if you find exact meaning of this word, just write us an e-mail and maybe you will win a CD. Seriously!
Lyrics are mostly about freedom of human mind and also anti-religionistic. I don’t like lyrics about gore and violence or using strong language in lyrics.
Tell us about your band live shows. Do you play often? How are your shows?
Live shows are the main reason for this band. This is what we like the most about this band and what we love. So we enjoy every single show and we are always trying to do our best.
We absolved many tours here in Czech Republic and we have at least one gig per month.
If I have to describe our live shows in one word, it would be: ENERGY.
What you can tell us about your country metal scene in general, and death metal scene in particular?
There is no place for complaining. There are some really good bands and talented musicians – seriously. But any of it is not famous behind Czech borders – and that is pity. I hope that someone reaches the highest awards abroad in future.
Describe your band releases so far. What reactions had media and audience about your music until now?
2011 – The first EP – Shapes of Imagination released via Italian label.
2013 – The first full length album Final Hybridation – released by one of the biggest Czech metal magazine Pařát..
2014 – single Endangered Uniqueness, first tour and first music video.
2016 – split album Damnations and The Rotten Brood – released by the biggest Czech metal label METALGATE.
Feedback for all of our releases was always amazing and it pushes our limits to do our best on the next one. Stay tuned for new stuff!
