BlackSchaf: Hello Exxplorer. How are you?
Kevin: We are great, the new album will be out in a few days, and we are very excited.
You are a power/heavy metal band from New Jersey. What is your intention to play heavy/power metal and not another style of music?
Yes, it is our intention to stay in the old school format of power metal. We have no interest in playing any other style of music.
Have you ever thought about the idea to play another style of music?
Only in 96’ did Exxplorer decide to try a heavier, more dark style to follow the trends of the time, but that was a mistake.
What are your big inspiring examples?
Our inspiration comes from within all of us to try to recapture our old feel for music.
You released your last album, the album before “Vengeance Rides An Angry Horse”, in the yeah 1996. What have you done in these 15 years?
There was a lot of change, people moved, babies were born and side projects amongst the band. But only brief recording took play in the year 2000.
What was the moment, when you decided to make a new album?
We decided to move forward to make a new album right after Headbanger Open Air and started writing. Immediately after Ed Lavolpe announced his retirement, thins went into high speed.
Do you already have some tour plans? Even in Germany?
We definitely will be back in Germany and hopefully this time we will get to see more of Europe
Do you think, you can fascinate many new fans on your tours?
Yes, we definitely. Feel we have a lot of fuel to fascinate our fans.
So there are two questions left! What is the question, you never get asked in an interview?
We never get asked about our families, so we have to say thanxx to them for standing behind us through all of this.
Now the last question! Do you want to say something to your fans und our readers out there in the world?
We want to thank all of our fans all around the world, we love you all and we thank you also for this interview and wish you all the best of life and music!
