The Sorrow Interview (English subtitles)
The fifth All Austrian Metal Night had Austria's most successful and strongest metal outlet headlining: The Sorrow.
After attempting to interview them at their show supporting Slayer, it finally worked out. Though the first attempt didn't go wrong because of the band, they were really sorry that it didn't work out. And that's already the first hint of the band's attitude. The rockers from Vorarlberg are such down-to-earth, obliging guys - they treated us like we were some old friends, who just happened to interview them.
After being a fan and follower of the band for a long time, I had quite a few questions ready for them. Tobi (Bass) and Mätze (Vocals, Rhythm Guitar) answered them thoroughly and tongue-in-cheek. Which goes to show how relaxed and refreshing The Sorrow approaches the whole music business, which, as we all know, can be very hard at times.
But, see for yourself: The Sorrow talks about overcoming hurdles, the austrian and german music scene, their relationship to vienna, the visual concept behind the band, touring-plans and much much more.
Is a metalcore band from Vorarlberg, Austria. Their debut effort "Blessings from a Blackened Sky" (Drakkar Records) got a lot of positive response from both press and fans and helped them gain popularity in the austrian and german metal-scene.
After touring relentlessly, the band released their third, self-titled record in 2010, which was a shift towards a more self-contained sound.
The band is currently in writing-mode and entered talks with different labels.
Catch the band live while you can!
