BURNING WITCHES live@Sweden Rock Festival The Interview
Unleashing a juggernaut of power metal, BURNING WITCHES tested the waters of Sweden Rock with their brand new vocalist, Laura Guidemond(ex-SHADOWRISE). Her prowess and vocal style proved to be a tight fit with this iconic metal group. If she was nervous, it certainly did not show at all. She ruled that stage. we had a chance to speak with her and drummer, Lala Frischknecht backstage after the gig.
How did it feel playing at Sweden Rock?
Really awesome. A little nerve wracking but also really exciting to play this festival. We did not expect the response. Very Positive. It was bigger than we thought. Some people obviously knew the songs already so I was super curious to see how they would view me as the new singer. It was an early morning show but it was really nice to get them going.
How do you prepare mentally for a festival like this?
Well for me it is the first time. So it was important to be comfortable with the set. learn the words so I fell I can do it because it was such a short time to be ready. If I feel prepared then I can do anything. Very important to have a good mood as well before playing. It helps.
Anything you do together before you go on stage as a ritual?
We Are joking laughing. It helps with tension.
What is next for Burning Witches?
Writing new songs. we actually have 4-5 ones written. We will record one song just to see the appetite for the band. We will be playing many festivals.
How important is social media?
You have to in the modern world. Social media helps. With it you can reach more people. Fans can hear what the new band is easier, unlike before.It's easier. It is a lot of work but it is fun too.
check this band out!!!
