Hi, It’s a pleasure for us to have on HARDROCKHEAVYMETAL PAULY of German Heavy Metal Band STALLION!!
Wohoo, the pleasure is mine, thank you so much for having me!
After the great RISE AND RIDE, the power of STALLION is ready to burn for second time with the new full length FROM THE DEAD! Can you tell us somethin’about the new platter? Will be there news in the band’s sound?
We are very excited for the release cause this time our guitar player Äxxl recorded, produced and mixed everything himself. That´s why it took so long to bring out the new record but I guess it was worth the waiting and I hope the fans like it as much as we do. The Songwriting is straight forward and we kept on writing in a wide style range from Hard Rock Pounders to Speed Metal riffing to even Thrashing parts just like we always did, haha. It´s pure STALLION, yehaa
· Another album with HIGH ROLLER RECORDS. Can you tell us somethin’ about relationships with this record company?
Yeah we are really happy to be part of the family cause the always believed in STALLION and since it is a very dedicated Label who do all the oldschool releases it´s the perfect Label for us at the moment. We meet the guys once in a while at concerts and festivals and its always like a friend meeting.
· The real news in music industry is vinyl. What do you think about this classic format?
Vinyl is the essence of of Heavy Metal. To be honest one of the reasons Äxxl and me started STALLION was that we finally wanted to bring out our own music on Vinyl, haha. That´s why we made it a Vinyl-Release with Download-Link only, despite a 200-copy Tape edition. I mean CD is almost dead. The people are downloading the stuff anyway and the few maniacs who really want to support a band and celebrate the music by turning on a record are more into vinyl just like us. It´s very important for us to have a vinyl edition for every release and again that´s a good reason to be on High Roller Records cause the most important thing for them is vinyl, too.
· There’s a new member in your line up, the bass player CHRISTIAN STÄMPFE. Can you tell us somethin’ about him?
Yeah, we are so happy to have him on board. Niki decided to leave the band cause he wanted to go on with his college degrees and so unfortunately he had to move. We also know STÄMPFE for years and played a couple of shows together with his second band “MOROS”. He has the same passion for Metal and music in general so he was the perfect choice for us.
· Can you tell us somethin’ about next gigs?
Well we are going to do some weekend shows during the sommer and probably go on another European Tour this autumn but there´s nothing confirmed yet so stay tuned. We would also love to tour in North- and South America or Asia as well but we´ll see what the future brings. The STALLION will ride on and we will bring our music everywhere, haha.
Thank you so much for your time! See you soon on HARDROCKHEAVYMETAL!
