Outrage Interview

1. Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

After our release date on the 29. of November we had a great release show,

and  more are announced for the next few weeks.

Now we are looking for club & festival shows 2014.

With the new Album Brutal Human Bastard and new merch stuff we are ready 
for 2014.

2.How would you describe the musical sound of the new album and also how 
does it differ from previous releases?

Since our founding in 2000 we play groovy old school death metal with 
influences from florida death metal style of the 90`s,

as well as on Brutal Human Bastard.

The difference to the previous releases is definitely more Diversity, we 
have a lot of various elements in the songs.

We mixed rock, melodic and sometimes thrash elements with our traditional 
death metal, and I tried to change the vocals as

well. But the groove is appreciable in every song, this is our trade mark.

We are not the fastest and hardest band on earth, we want the crowd to 
bang their heads.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the new release explores?

The human being is a brutal bastard, take a look at the news, every day
you hear about more disasters and abomination around the world.

This is enough stuff for our lyrics.

We sing about the drug war in mexico, about the revolt in Syria or the 
cannibal from Rotenburg,  and all those things are real!

But not every song is so serious, we also sing about touring, drinking 
and hurting necks after show, haha.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name Outrage?

Outrage is standing for all the bad things which happen in the world 
every day,

there is no day without an OUTRAGE.

So we thought thats a good name for us.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the 
years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

We played a lot of fantastic shows in the last 13 years but two of them
were amazing.

We were co headliner for our idols Obituary in Vienna. The crowd was 
fantastic and we got the chance to talk with Obituary after the show,

these guys are really cool.

The second show I remember was the Metalchamp Final at Metalcamp in 

There were about 1000 people at the second stage and the atmosphere was

Our performance is very aggressive with a lot of energy and a powerful 
sound. We always want to see the crowd banging

and usually we are successful. 

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?

We have a few release Shows in the next weeks,

and we are looking for more festival and club shows, we are working on it.

It is very difficult to get a tour but maybe  we will see 

7.The new album had a cover of a Nirvana cover, what was the decision

    behind doing your own version of one of their songs/

We started listen to music in the 90s and Nirvana was one of 
the first  hard bands we listened to. We grew up with them and so 
we decided to cover negative creep.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your newer music by
fans of death metal?

We got a lot of positive feedback from our fans and they know that we 
are not very fast, technical or brutalâŠbut they like what they hear.

Outrage dont try to create something new and we don t jump on new 
trends.we are what we are.

9.What is going on with the other musical projects these days?

Our basser Evil Ed has a side project called Proll Guns, they play 
western thrash metal.

They have a really great stage performance, with saloon girls and a lot
of whisky, haha .

Sometimes I work as a Dj at metal partys, but we try to focus completely 

10.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?

In 2014 we want to promote âbrutal human bastardâ as good as we can,

and our plan is to enter the studio in 2015 again.

11.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your newer 
music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

Every member of outrage listens to different bands. Influences for me 
definitly were Asphyx and Hail of Bullets.

Currently I listen to Dying Fetus, Behemoth, Belphegor, Grave, 
Solstafir, Ghost Brigade and much much moreâŠ

12.Outside of music what are some of your interests?

Our guitarist manuel loves old motorcycles,

our drummer and I like soccer, not to play only to watch ;-)

and of course we like Parties ;-)

13.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?

Thank you for the interview and thanks to all our fans and promoters out 
there for your support

in the last 13 years.
