BUER – “Rapid fire” interview
Hi, and welcome to Metal Maniack! Please tell us about your band and members history.
Hey, thanks for the welcome!
As a group we operate less than a year. Chorozon joined us last year in late summer. But I was planning some unusual split with Utgard even before that. We planned to use my music (already existing) and Utgard’s lyrics. I used name BUER before with same music, but only as a project, not as a band. Last year something happened, all things united somehow, I created new logo and we started to thinking about playing as a band in serious way.
What do you think is your band main influences? How and at what age you got into metal?
Typical question, but it’s hard to tell.
So I start from the end. We had always underground scene here, but more in the rock way. I found harder metal scene at the end of high school. The influences were probably not only musical, but rather psychical. And it mostly depends on my mood. I listen to many genres and I’m not avoiding even non-metal bands.
But as a band, we promote a common points: the darkness, lost in thoughts, nobility of evil, black wisdom… it‘s BUER!
How about your band style. How you describe it for those who never listened to your band music?
So, let’s take it simply. Some fans says that we’re similar to Horna, Silva Nigra, Nargaroth and Satanic Warmaster. But our CD certainly doesn‘t sound like these. I would maybe accept Nargaroth, but I don’t like comparing.
This is very subjective, everybody will see something else in it.
Explain your band name and how you get it and tell us a little bit about your songs lyrics and messages.
BUER – The president of hell, the daemon of wise, wisdom and comprehension. He commands to the 50 legions of daemons. It makes you think about the rational view of the world. He’s the murderer of emotions in the soul, what influence your perception of the world.
In lyrics you can find the black inner fire after his ignition you can’t stop thinking
In the future our lyrics will have continuity, we’ll add some characters which Buer possesses, and perhaps our next album will have a serious story line… But about it, maybe next time.
Tell us about your band live shows. Do you play often? How are your shows?
So we are active on stages about half a year. We had debut in the winter and we played yet 8 times. So the frequency is about once a month. For now, but with the time it will grow, of course.
We waited especially when we finally release CD.
What you can tell us about your country extreme metal scene in general and black metal scene in particular?
I’m from years where a smaller population of young blood was and maybe more important thing is that’s many tons of genres, today.
Metal audience is therefore much thinner than our fathers remember.
But I think, that now is metal tougher. Most of fans play some instrument, and most of the most have their own band. I’m definitely not ashamed for the Czech Metal, there was plenty global bands, and as I indicated, new are born. We have ground for this!
Black attracts maybe third of people, as Death. And then there are Thrashers and many other genres. But it is tolerated quite well, there isn’t huge gap.
Describe your band releases so far. What reactions had media and audience about your music until now?
You can’t expect many of media reports about that relative new band.
But I’m very pleased what it comes to me so far, all the feedback was pure positive.
Please describe your band in few words for future fans or record labels that are interested in signing with your band.
Currently we operate with a lot of horror dark thoughts. I’m personally mega fan of Alien, and in the band, we want to attack on audience not only in the sense of hearing, but also visually, or on other senses.
So in the future I will try to establish the term Sci-fi horror black metal genre and we intend to play harder.
We are planning readable and harder riffs, as I suggested, and the interdependence of stories, and all this in more dimensions. The music is mostly already yet, the next steps will be visual, and Utgard will rage in the lyrics.
BUER’s eyes are always open, and through it we can see that the world around us is constantly in motion. Doesn’t stand still, and that’s why we want to play metal of the 21st century. We lightly showed some new pieces in DEMO 2014, but there were plenty of compromises and it couldn’t be known as a band, even not for progress. It was likely a dead branch.
You will see the difference in our new pieces in right time!
How can your fans or record labels contact your band?
We’re active on social networks, but we don’t have our website yet. You can find us on Facebook, Google+, Bandzone.cz, etc. I recommend contacting me on my private email: firstname.lastname@example.org, it’s the easier way to contact us.
Thank you for this “rapid fire” interview! Stay Metal!!!
And thanks to you!
Whether you are burning in black fire! BUER!
