Interview with . . . Blackbriar

When I was little, one of my favorite fairytales was Snow White and Briar Rose (Rose-Red). It’s not a common story so I haven’t heard it in a long time.

While looking for more Celebrity Ghost Stories or New Years Day, I came across a video of Blackbriar, an alternative/gothic metal band from the Netherlands. Their name reminded me of the Briar Rose fairy tale. It’s like Blackbriar combines music with fairy tales and ghost stories.

I wanted to know more about Blackbriar. Sometimes it doesn’t hurt to ask if you can ask questions. Blackbriar is a band that you definitely should get to know.

 

 

Do you like real fairy tales or the sugar-coated stories?

Real fairy tales definitely! Also, Zora gets a lot of her inspiration from the ‘original’ fairy tale stories.

What have you been doing during your downtime?

In general, we usually don’t take a lot of downtime haha. Sometimes you won’t hear from us on social media for weeks but that doesn’t mean we are taking time off, or not doing anything at all. We are continuously working on new stuff and many of these things don’t get shared with our fans on our social-media because we are trying to stay as focused as possible during that period of time. We (Blackbriar) did take a short vacation in August. Even then we still worked on the production of our new CD and our crowdfunding campaign, which is still live!

Do you prefer to be an independent band?

Yes, at the moment we do. We have received many offers from interesting labels but at the moment we prefer to stay in control and head in a direction we feel is best for Blackbriar.

Will you be doing a tour in the United States?

We definitely will someday! At the moment, there’s nothing planned yet. It is actually one of our biggest dreams as a band and on top of our to-do list!

If you could put together a dream tour, who would you invite?

I think as a band we would probably invite all the artists that have inspired us to write our own music and help us become the band that we are today! Just to name a few: Kate Bush, In This Moment, Periphery, Halestorm, Epica, Lana del Rey, Nightwish, It’s gonna be a weird but legendary tour for sure!

Do you guys celebrate Halloween?

We love Halloween!!! Usually, we make sure we have a show during Halloween so we can wear costumes and make-up haha. However, we are most likely to skip this year but probably still going to a Halloween party somewhere 🙂

Why do you think people are fascinated with witches?

Because they are empowered female figures, close to nature and well… magic is awesome! 🙂

Would you ever cast a love spell?

NEVER!!

What do you want people to know about Blackbriar?

We would like everyone to know that you should check out our new EP called ‘We’d Rather Burn.” Please leave us a message on Social Media with your thoughts! Also, we would like to thank you for this lovely interview. Love, Blackbriar!

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
