THE MIGHTY DEATH METAL KILLING MACHINE THAT IS REQUIEM HAILING FROM EAST GERMANY HAVE BEEN BLASTING AWAY THEIR UNCOMPROMISING BRAND OF PURE OLD SKULL DEATH METAL SINCE '95 AND ALTHOUGH NOT BEING THE MOST PROLIFIC BANDS THEY DO MAKE UP FOR THIS IN SHEER QUALITY AND DEATH METAL BRUTALITY. WE ARE PROUD TO  HAVE THE BAND FEATURED ON FIRST EVER  POWER OF THE RIFF COMP AND NOT ONLY THAT THEY HAVE BEEN GOOD ENOUGH TO ANSWER A FEW QUESTIONS FOR US.

TPOTR - The band formed back in 1996 and released your first demo "Shades of God" the same year how
has the band's sound changed over the years from that first album?

Basically the sound didn`t change that much...maybe it is a little bit more trashy... in fact we became more experienced over the years and so we tried some other things and transpose it otherwise.

TPOTR - Your classic debut "Old Skull  Death Metal" came out in 2003 and things have been quiet on the
album front since then, what are the reasons for this?

After the "old skull death metal" album we were working on other musical projects and and everyone of us 4 lived out the personal things that were in our minds.

TPOTR - Have you plans for a new album in the works?

We`re working on a 4-track-ep but our "real-life-jobs" are very time consuming so that we don`t like to put us under pressure with a release date or so.

TPOTR - It must be hard to keep your spirits up being an independent band who basically do it all
by yourselves without any label support. How has the band managed to survive this long, pure
metalheaded perseverance?

This is very simple... we are close-knit like a big family and we all love music.


TPOTR - Has the band toured much outside of Germany and where would you like to tour in the future?

This year we will play some gigs in Germany, but we are also looking for some gigs in Poland or the Czech Rep. and our other neighboring countries...
maybe next year with new songs??!!


TPOTR - I want to ask you about your home country Germany which has always been a stronghold for
metal music. Why is this do you think?

Hehe..metal in Germany is like a religion...you believe or you believe not...and not least the Germans like it hard.


 TPOTR - I want to thank you for contributing "Her Blood" and "From Honor and Death" to The Power of
the Riff Comp representing Death Metal in fine form. How do you feel to be a part of the comp?

HEY MAN...THAT`S FUCKING GREAT!!!!!!!!
It is a great honor for us to be part of the comp.

TPOTR - What are your plans for the future of the band?

It's needless to say that we like to make music further on, and maybe our wish will come true and we can play a little tour!! thank you for your interest and stay metal!!! \m/
