Motorfire Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
We are a hard'n'heavy metal band from Slovenia. We play a mixture of 80's hard rock and traditional heavy metal. We started this band around 3 years ago mainl
y because we like playing and making music we like, and as you may noticed we really like old school hard rock and heavy metal.
2. Recently you have released your first full length album, can you tell us a little bit more about this musical genre?
Yes we had released our debut album on 12th of April via Metal Tank Records. Album has 11 tracks on it, from very fast songs, like Motorfire which is almost speed metal song, to more hard rock type of songs like Claws'n'Fangs, and there is even one power ballad on there.
3. The music on the album has a more hard rock approach to metal, what was the decision behind playing this style as opposed to the more extreme styles that a lot of younger bands usually go for?
We do not really like the way metal is evolving right now. Down-tuned guitars, growl vocals, etc. So we said why we or any other band, can’t play music our idols played back in the old times? So we decided to give it a try, and in process we’ve discovered that many young bands have chosen the same path as we did, and that there is strong fan base still supporting that kind of music.
4. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Our lyrics cover dark and everyday themes. Mainly about motorcycles and love, etc. You know the usual stuff. We weren't going to reinvent anything new.
5. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Motorfire'?
When we were looking for a good band name, one of the guy just propose that we combine MOTORHEAD and BON FIRE, so it became MOTORFIRE.
6. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?
We had some really big show like the Metal Camp festival 2012, and the trip to Belgium and show in JC Den Ast was a blast. Our appereance on the stage is energetic, especially the front-man who is jumping around like a 4-year old psychopath. Haha :)
7. Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?
We are planning to have couple of show in Slovenia for summer time, and maybe some mini tour in Fall, but nothing certain yet.
8. A year ago you were a part of a German compilation called 'Steel held high', do you feel this album did a lot of help when it comes to getting
the bands music out there heard?
Yeah we obtained some new fans from Brazil and Europe (Belgium, Germany, etc.), and gained some good friends.
9. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of hard rock and heavy metal?
We had some really positive feedback of the new album, from foreign countries. Hope to tour them all.
10. Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
We’ll stay on the path we’ve chosen, and making more old school heavy metal for all of you.
11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
As you may notice we’re very influenced by NWOBHM, and German heavy/speed/power metal, as also some of 80’s Hard Rock. The main bands that influences us are Iron Maiden, Helloween and Def Leppard.

12. What are some of your non musical interests?
We all have others hobbies beside making and playing music. Some of us like to do sport, some of us like to cook, and eat good food, others attend scouts, but we all like to party and have a really good time.
13. Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts/
Support the scene, buy our album and other merch, so that we may see you guy on tour soon! Feel your burning heart.
