Priest_LogoDie Begeisterung war groß nach dem Konzert von Priest in München, deshalb möchte ich sie euch näher vorstellen. Die Synth-Band kreiert Musik, die in der Weite elektronischer Träume verwurzelt ist – das kann ich nur bestätigen. Ihre neue EP Obey gibt es bereits auf YouTube zu hören, also einfach mal anschalten und nebenbei das Interview lesen:

Who is behind Priest?
An A.I. called „The Puppet Master“ – a collection of both organic and digital minds.

If you had to put your music into a drawer and print a label on it, what would it say?
„Back to the future“.

Forget about genres for a second – Priest’s music sounds like …?
… the pop culture we grew up with in the 80’s and 90’s mixed with contemporary technology. We’re re-inventing our memories.

Which sort of mood produces the best songs?
Real life human emotions are always the best if you want to make a connection with an audience. Then they can hear that it’s for real, and that the words are true. If the music can amplify that feeling, we have succeeded.

Which instrument will surely NEVER be heard on a Priest-album?
I don’t want to close any doors, but I have a hard time believing that bagpipes will fit into what we’re doing now. Or the mouth harp. But never say never.

Which record would you want to listen to when you leave the bathroom in the morning, while the beautiful girl from last night is still in your bed?
„Disintegration“ by The Cure.

The Fairy-Godmother pops up in front of you and grants you a wish. What do you wish for?
World domination!

No alcohol is no solution either. What booze combination will definitely dissolve all your troubles and issues?
Romulan Ale.

What shows you that someone is a true friend?
You just know. There shouldn’t be any issues if you don’t see each other for a year or two – they’re just there for you, no matter what and they treat you with respect and you trust them.

Who was the hero of your childhood?

What is the most embarrassing/surprising record in your CD-shelf?
„Human Clay“ by Creed.

What’s next? Tour? Studio? Vacation? Something completely different?
We just came home from a tour with Aesthetic Perfection, Amelia Arsenic and Chemical Sweet Kid. Now it’s time to finish the demos for the next full length album.
