Interview about Taiwaz, Swedish Heavy metal band.
By Carla Morton
Hej Urban, how have you been up to?
Hi Carla pretty hectic.We did our last gig for 2015 at Brother Tuck in Stockholm last week.Now are we writing of some new material and hopefully get in the studio early in 2016.
A few words to say about Taiwaz’s foundation.
Taiwaz started in the middle of the 80`s played until ’91 then we took a little break and start again 2012.
You have released the debut album under the name of ”I am All”, tell me about it.
Early this year we released our debut album ’I AM ALL’ at Electricassaultrecords. It’s a vinyl with 4 new songs at the A side and 4 old demos from the 80´s at the B side.
Who mainly wrote the music?
Often we do our songs by some guitar riffs in the rehearsal room .Then I write the lyrics with some help from the demons living in my head.
What can you tell me about the band’s influences?
We do not do our music after influences but of course our housegods Black Sabbath maybe are there watching over us sometimes.
Are you going to tour to promote the new album?
Yes we did a promotion European tour with Below in Feb 2015.But because of custom problems we did not get the albums in time so we were back in Sweden when they arrived to us.
What other plans do you have about the band beside touring?
In 2016 Taiwaz is planing to release an EP and play a lot of festivals. First out we could tell you about is Muskel Rock på Tyrolen 3-5 Juni -16.
What message do you have for the people who support Taiwaz?
We are so proud of our fans around the world. We hope to meet you all at some stage near you .Let the darkness embrace you.
