Interview with BLOODDUST


Welcome to the FILTHY DOGS OF METAL Webzine.
Tell us a few things about BLOODDUST (Members, Starting Year etc).
Blooddust was founded in Neuhausen near Esslingen in 2007, but most of the time we fought with line-up changes and Fabi as the only constant member. So there are only two releases till now. Blooddust is actually Fabi (v/g), Kalle (g) and Niko (b).

In 2017 you have released your demo ''Fire Of Sacrifice''. Have you prepared anything new since then?
We've written approx. 15 to 20 songs since then, but didn't record anything, due to the leaving of our drummer and our involvement in other bands and projects.

Label or DIY and why?
We hate these big commercial labels and prefer small underground labels to keep our independence. The first demo we did by ourselves, but to be honest, we don't have the time to always do this on our own.

Do you prefer Vinyl, Tape, CD or Digital Format and why is that?
Only analog is real!!! We prefer vinyl or tape, depends on the music. Certain music has to be on tape!!!

Your music style is Black/Thrash Metal. Which are your main influences (Favourite Artists / Bands etc.)
We listen to all types of Metal, but Blooddust is mainly influenced by 80s German Thrash Metal, such as Violent Force, Kreator, Sodom etc.  But also some Venom, Bathory, and stuff like that.

Which things, do you think, a Band should sacrifice in order to succeed? Have you ever sacrificed anything in your life for a better future of your Band?
Never sacrifice your ideals! Not for money, not for success, not for your girlfriend! We wouldn't call it sacrifice, but metal is the way of our lives, so of course all the rest is less important.

Describe your ideal live show as a performance Band. Have you already experienced that?
Headbanging, stage diving and streams of beer.  Blooddust played several live shows, the last in 2016 in our hometown with Midnight Prey and Hell Patröl. Great concert, it escalated quickly hehe.

Which attributes, do you think, that a new Black/Thrash Metal Band should have in order to gain identity and be unique?
Make good music, no poser shit haha. Fuck the mainstream and beware of clean sounds!

Do you believe that Bandcamp and other Digital Platforms help the new Black/Thrash Metal Bands? Which, do you think, is the ideal way for a Band to promote its work?
In the past we boycott Facebook, Bandcamp etc but it seems that it's a good thing especially for younger bands.

Tell us a few things about the New Underground Metal Scene in Southwest Germany (Bands, Fanzines, Webzines, Metal Clubs etc.)
There are some really cool bands, Spitfire from Karlsruhe for example, and some Heavy Metal Clubs as the Beer Bängers, but the underground scene in Southwest Germany got smaller in the last years. Fewer young bands and a lot of locations had closed. Also greater bands such as Blizzard are not active at the moment. But the Keep it True Festival keeps the flame of the Underground burning!

Do you know anything about the Hellenic Metal Scene?
Of course, Fabi for example likes the style of Hellenic Black Metal, such as old Rotting Christ. And we're all fans of Slaughtered Priest, Raw Pöison and Omega. Played with them on the Heavy Metal Forces Festival 2011 in Großerlach. And maybe we drank some beer hahaha.

What are your future plans?
You can expect another new song in the near future. We're currently working on new material and search for a new drummer. At the time we're looking for a label to re-release the "Fire of Sacrifice" demo.

Thank you very much for your time & Keep up the good work! The closure is yours.
Thank you for the interview and your interest in Blooddust. Stay Heavy and be prepared for some trve Speed Thrash Inferno!!!
