Graveyard Ghoul Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
Shame on this people! We´re GRAVEYARD GHOUL from Germany and we play old school Death.

2.So far you have released 2 full lengths, a demo and a split, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on those recordings?
We like the old raw and dirty sound not the high production shit.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Our lyrics about horror, death and fun !

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Graveyard Ghoul'?
The inspiration is from old horror movies from 50´s to 1980´s. But the name is from the same song “Graveyard Ghoul´s” from the Swedish band Tribulation.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
Some awesome shows. The best gigs was with our friends from REPUKED. And the gig in our hometown with the mighty Sadistic Intent…awesome. Pure Death Metal.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
Yes, a short tour with CRYPTIC BROOD and we want to play on Festivals in 2015.

7.Recently you where a part of a split with Cryptic Blood, what are your thoughts on the other band that participated on the album?
First, the band called BROOD not Blood, sorry. So, CB are good friends of us and we think that was a good way to make a split with the guys…buy and die!

8.Currently the band is signed to Final Gate Records, can you tell us a little bit more about this label?
No. It´s a very good label. Enough said!

9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of death metal?
Ohh, the feedback was very good, I think the people love the old metal…again. That´s great!!!

10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
At the moment  we are satisfied. We hope we recorded more records and play more shows.

11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Sooo many bands. A big influence is Autopsy and some other bands with Reifert. Other bands like Old Pestilence, Cancer, Necrophagia, Repulsion, Death…are a big influence too. But we still listen to other (not metal) music.

12.How would you describe your views on Occultism?
Occultism is ok, but all religion stuff is shit. The better way is – drink beer and worship music!

13.What are some of your non musical interests?
Me and Disgracer are biiiig Horror Movie Fans…we damn fuckin maniacs about that!  We still collect all from our favorite movies.

14.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Thanks for the interview…and listen/buy our music.
