How long do you need to practice to feel comfortable with your songs before you record them?
Gun Barrel: This depends on the songs. Some songs are played not that often and you record them very easily. Some songs are changed during the recording sessions. For example: The song we felt comfortable with very quick was FRONT KILLERS. This song felt like an old friend from the start.
How has your new album been received by the media?
Gun Barrel: The reviews seem to be a bit better than the last time and they were fine the last time. A lot of people love the album. Only one or two guys think its shit and wrote a bad review. All in all we are very happy with our reviews at the time.
How would you describe your music to any of our readers who may not have heard of you before?
Gun Barrel: It is a kick in the ass. Some kind of rock ‘n’ roll metal.
Will you stick to this sound on the next album, too, or will there be changes to the GUN BARREL
Gun Barrel: I don’t know. We always try to record the energy and the sound we create on stage. The sound depends on where you record, who is your producer, what equipment do you use and how do you feel. So next time it may be different but I can’t tell you how that may sound.
What are the best and worst trends in metal today?
Gun Barrel: Best trend: Old heroes come back to kick some ass.
Worst trend: Too much downloads from the internet.
What tasks presently lie ahead for GUN BARREL?
Gun Barrel: Putting together some tour dates. We want to present the album live and can’t wait to get on stages all over Europe.
