                                              MAULE Interview  20.3.23

MM:If I knew nothing about MAULE how would you describe the band's music to me


-Straight up old school heavy metal fantasy darkness.


MM: Give us a bit of insight into your band's name


-Its my (Johnny - bass guitar) last name, which we chose over my preferred band name “Warnicorn” you know, like a unicorn, but for war, because it would be easier to license.


MM: How pleased are you with the responses to your  debut album 


-Really good. We’ve clocked almost 200k streams across all our platforms in the first year. Its really motivating to see such a warm response.


MM: Traditional heavy metal is on the rise. Why do you think this is 


-Cause heavy metal will never die baby! Its fun and it means something so why not! Hell it never went away in the first place!


MM: The artwork is stunning..  Do you have a framed copy?


-Ha we’ll do back tattoos instead.


MM: Tell us your plans for the year's festival and tour wise 


-We’ve put in festival submissions so we’d be stoked to be able to do that, or at least just get out on the road, but nothings set in stone yet.


MM:Do you plan to do live feeds at some of your shows


-I believe we did an entire stream show before for an online festival out of Argentina called “Heresy Fest”, that was pretty cool. None of us are particularly technically savvy so I wouldn’t hold your breath on that one, unless you can hold it for a REALLY long time.


MM: Which NWOBHM bands had the biggest impact on you


-Iron Maiden. Next question please. Haha theres a ton in there, Priest, Angel Witch, Sabbath, Ozzy, honestly theres too many too name, and its not like there won’t be more down the road.
