I have said this before, but I'm gonna say it again! The UK are producing countless talented bands in the sludge doom stoner metal scene, many of which we have featured on the blog. These guys are going to be at the forefront of that scene over the next 12 months, mark my words.
Moghul are creating quite a buzz due to the release of their brilliant debut release, Dead Empires, which Steve reviewed brilliantly a few weeks back but also on the back of their live shows too. So on the day of their vinyl release of Dead Empires on the Devizes Label, it is with great pleasure I bring you my interview with Moghul. Check out what Adam had to say when I presented with a new improved 20 Questions to him. Enjoy, Sludgers!
Hey Adam, How are you? I appreciate you taking the time to talk to talk to us, here at the Sludgelord.
Q) What was your motivation to start the band? Did you all know each other before you formed Moghul? The name comes from your love of curry, specifically Chicken Madras or were you yanking my chain?
Q) What are some of the difficulties/frustrations of being part of Moghul, because there are many other commitments such as family, work etc, that perhaps restrict the amount of time you can dedicate to the band?
A) When writing we all definitely have to be on the same page for it to go anywhere. Our on stage chemistry comes from the pleasure of performing the material that we have sweated over!
A) We have not yet played a your however, we hope to be able to share some tour stories with you in the future. There are so many great bands out there that we would love to share a stage with but to name a few; Sunn 0))), Slomatics, Electric Wizard, Sleep, Moss and Kongh.
A) At the moment we are working towards our next release. We are aiming to get back in the studio in the spring time and then unleash the leviathan in the Summer! We would love to embark on a tour and play some festivals, we just have to wait and see what opportunities come our way.
