Interview: K [2011]

In 2007 -K- (voc, bass) and -M- (voc, guitars) decided to set their burning souls free and founded ARROGANZ. In the dirty depths of Cottbus, Germany, they undertook -L- for drumming and started up to exhale their infernal visions. After rehearsing their first couple of songs, they started to play some underground-gigs and small festivals. And in August 2010 ARROGANZ invaded Blacksmith Studios to record their Debut-Album “Dark And Deathless”, which has been released in April 2011. To promote the hate, ARROGANZ joined the Death Infernal Tour of Swedish Death Metal masters DEMONICAL in May 2011.

The founder,vokiller/bassplayer “K” talk about some things here in Valkyrian Music:

Earlier this year you guys went on the Death Infernaltour with the highly regarded deathmetal act Demonical..
Strangest place you found yourselves in?

– There were a lot of strange places on tour. I`ve no idea which one was the strangest… But we don`t care about that stuff, because every place we find ourselves in is going to be a strange one afterwards. HAHA…
Where would you rather go on tour?

– We wanna play as much as we can and at any place. Of course there are some interesting places, for example in southern America… you always hear crazy stories from the crowds down there. But we gonna do it step by step, you know.
With which band?
– Deströyer 666 would be one of my favourites. But there are so many bands that we wanna play with… It doesn`t make sense to list them all.

If you got the chance meeting a historical person..Whom would that be, and why?

– I think it would be an artist. Maybe Chuck Schuldiner, or Jimi Hendrix… just for jamming, talking about music and have some drinks.

Top 5 albums?

– That’s hard to say. My playlist changes constantly… A current list could be as follows:

Urfaust – Der freiwillge Bettler
Aura Noir – Hades Rise
Bolt Thrower – Those Once Loyal
Triptykon – Eparistera Daimones
Necros Christos – Doom Of The Occult

When I met you in Stockhom in May 2011, the drummer “T” mentioned something about the supreme deathmetal act – Vomitory..
Any other bands/musicians you value..?

– Additional to the others I mentioned before, there are bands like Asphyx, Celtic Frost, Darkthrone, Demonical, The Devils Blood, Dissection, Death, Destruction, Grave, Hellhammer, Hail Of Bullets, Interment, Immortal, Kreator, Master, Motörhead, Nifelheim, Sodom, Carpathian Forest, Taake, Shining and many more….

Arroganz was formed in 2007..what did you do before that? (In which bands were you members)

– “M” and I formed our very first band when we were 14 or 15 years old. We started with very primitive Black Metal stuff… One of our first covers we played was for example “Sluts of Hell” from the Blood and Vomit – Album from Nattefrost… still KILLER!!! But at this time we had no band name or even gigs. After a while we quit to rehearse and jammed with some other musicians or played in other projects for a while. But “M” and I never quit writing songs and assembling ideas for our own band. The name ARROGANZ was certain years before the band was finally found. In the winter of 2007/2008 we felt ready to unleash our demons and found ARROGANZ…

Favourite drink(s)?

– Grasovka (Vodka from Poland) with apple-juice, or Jacky-Coke.

Mention some things you always bring on tour?

– Weed and apples.

What are you guys planning for 2012?

– Next year in summer we will go in the studio again to record our second full-length. The first songs are written and we will spend the next months to work on the new album. But we`ll also play some weekend-gigs. In January we are on tour with DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT for example. Some Open Airs are planned.

Any last words to the readers?

– We are ARROGANZ, we chose the path of no turning back!!!

… Praise the Kult or fuck off!!!
