"Interview: Rebel Empire (Mexico)"

Yeah!, it's time to coming back to Central America to meet one of these most prolific band. We go to Mexico to talk with RÜZER! Viva Rebel Empire!

1. Can you please, introduce the band, his history and the members?

Rebel Empire was created as an answer, a shout, a claim to those people who imposed us and think we have no will or rights. Rights that hypocritically themselves have wrote in a corrupt constitution.

It is the first act against the new and old political rule, which controls, against the one we must fight.

The story is simple, one day I wanted to explore a new way to compose, I wanted to create a completely different music at the one I usually had done. This inquieteud only needed to make match with the indignation and with the impotence generated by the corrupt political class in my country (México), Something that I could not contain more, Rebel Empire.

The band is made by Silver Zeta on acoustic or electric drums and I at the voice and composition.

2. How did you get this name?

The name refers to imperialism that took place in México at the end of the century, in an ironic sense, because imperialism is still living in an absurd way but with different names, ones more sophisticated, that’s why the band name is in English.

3. How can you discribe the sound you produce?

Direct, strong and sophisticated.

4. What's general message you want to give throw his productions?

The claim of injustice, shouting through the songs.

5. What were your main musical influences that inspired you to produce your own sound?

This answer may disappoint many, though 2 bands were the ones that determined the basic line of Rebel Empire’s style (Laibach and DAF) The most influence comes from Nu Metal and Industrial Metal groups, as Megaherz, Oomph!, Letzte Instanz, Tanzwut, Eisbrecher and Rammstein until bands like Static X and Coal Chamber. Was also very influenced by mexican punk groups such as Sindrome y Graffitti 3X.

6. Are you open to collaborate with other bands, or done remixes for other ebm bands?

Among the bands or projects that Rebel Empire has remixed, i can name Red Industrie, Grosstracktor and Firemensch. Rebel Empire was remixed by Década 2, Batch ID and Grosstracktor, and more in a field oriented electro exists remix by WARDROBE. Working with all these projects, as any interaction, has been very rewarding, not in the final product is the delivery of the remix, if not the process and dialogue established with such projects in the range of the proposition and delivery thereof. Knowing and understanding the perceptions regarding gender, production and the attitude they carry in their respective bands or projects, it's the most enjoying you can feel!

7. How is the EBM scene in Mexico?

The EBM scene as such, is having a boom recently. A few years ago there wasn't exponents dedicated strictly to the genre, except the legendary draft Decada 2, the others projects were more dedicated to industrial, like the hard electro and electrodark, but not with the traits of the EBM classics.So I consider the EBM scene in Mexico new.

8. What is the news from this year?

For this year comes big plans for Rebel Empire, because with the new member band (Silver Zeta) on drums, the issues will have a different dynamic and with highest energy. Also we want fully enter in a professional studio, to record what will be the first items on our first album, which may see light early next year. The live shows will be also very different, I dare say that this year is the direct refente for what will be Rebel Empire's future.

9. What do you think about our compilation?

I think it is an important part of this new wave, the reborn of the interest to the Ebm. I hope a recognition fot all bands of Spanish language, sure there will be a significant worldwide impact.

10. One word you like?

11. One word you dislike?

12. one word for our audience.

13. How they can be in contact with you?

You can find us on facebook as Rebel Empire, here is the contact information for presentations, remixes or interests of any nature.

14. A last question for the interview.. What kind of beer you use to drink? A favorite brand? ;)

I cant tell you a favorite trademark of beer, only that I like too hahaha.....
