MM - Well David thanks
for taking the time out to do this interview with us.
MM - So how did
Lord Volture come together?
that idea in mind, I started writing songs for our first CD.
I recorded that album with my brother Paul and the help of a
friend who as a technician. From there, when we had the first
album ready, I got the live band together. I’ve been
very fortunate that the live band has remained the same
line-up ever since and we became a recording band as well.
MM - Most people
say the second album is the hardest album, but personally I
think the third album is more difficult as it defines a
MM - By the time
a band get to the third album they’ve actually found their
MM - I hadn’t
actually heard the band's first album, but I bought the second
album 'Never Cry Wolf' on the strength of your performance at
Festival this year.
MM - It's been
some 3 years since the second album 'Never Cry Wolf' but the
band haven’t been idol in-between, so did you find time to
write between tours or did you set time aside dedicated to
writing the new album?
MM - So where
does the inspiration come from for the songs? I noticed on
the new album you also delves into the Napoleonic Wars.
MM - The band's
albums have always had guest artists on them and this new album is
no different as Chris Poland from Megadeth makes a special
guest appearance. So how
did you get Chris involved on the album?
With the new album Paul once again contacted Chris,
sent him the songs and he really liked it and really wanted
to do some old school metal again and that was it.
Some times you have to have a lot of luck to get these guys
involved, but all you have to do is ask. If you don’t try
you’ll never succeed.
MM - What does
the Dutch music scene have to offer your band specifically?
What are its downfalls?
MM - You appeared
at this years S.O.S .Festival in Manchester, I understand that
this was your first show in England?
MM – That day I
was really impressed with the band, the professionalism of
the band, the banners at the side. I wasn’t the only one
because in noticed people coming in from outside the venue
to hear the band and for me I was one of the highlights of
MM - Any plans to
come back to the UK because I know you’d go down well with
the UK metalheads.
MM - So what does
the future hold for the band for the remainder of the year
MM – So have
you thought about the next album?
MM – Thank you
very much for taking part to in the interview!
