Lower Hell

Please, tell us something about your band (history, members, recordings/releases, livegigs, label?

Our band was formed in the year 2004 at that time it was called LIES BEHIND THE SMILE yet. After our first release "Just to be sure" 2005 we rushed through Europe to support bands like Born from pain, Fear my Thoughts, Tankard and much more. We reinforced our number of members from four to five beauties in 2007 thus we were prepared to deal with more highly technical metal. Therefore we changed the band name to LOWER HELL. Our second record "Asphyxia" was released in 2008 from the indie label "Demons run amok"( Final Prayer, Zero Mentality).Now at the beginning of 2010 Bastardized Recordings (Japanische Karmpfhörspiele, Arsonists get all the girls) launched our current full length album "Hellevator".

How would you describe your position in the wide-world metal scene? What do you think about the underground movement?

We are making music for metalheads all over the world. In fact our main distribution is located in Europe but we also have visitors on our homepage from all over the place especially from the US.I think in these days the underground scene is swamped with too much bands. Every town and every village comes up with a new "metal breed" as a result "Metalcore" becomes a curse name. You see extravagant Myspace-design with an amazing sound but if you listen to the band playing live on stage they can’t even hold there instruments right. You know what I mean? The problem is labels and promoters of the music business are not able to separate those bands from others anymore which are working hard for their success.

Which 3 CDs would you take with you to a lonely island?

If you had enough money to shoot a video, how would the clip look like?

Like the new LOWER HELL clip "The Requiem". The effort was massive as you can see at the "Making of"-clip on our Myspace site. It was a great experience for us to scratch the surface of Hollywood.We had really special actors in this quite gloomy film shooting. It shows a murderer which is Marsen Fischer the singer of Fear my Thoughts three Chickens and a teeth-baring dog. We are mostly satisfied with the roughness of this video despite of the highly HD quality.

If you’ve the chance to change one day of your life. Which will it be and why?

 Well, there is maybe one thing. As I met this Playmate Jaime Edmonson ("Miss January 2010") in Las Vegas the other day I would propose marriage to her… on my knees!!!

Which song shall be played on your burial?

"Hellevator" from LOWER HELL it’s just an instrumental song with loads of creative music influences, melancholy and passion. In addition to the drums and the guitars there are violins, trumpets and a piano. Rest in peace dude! 

If you had the chance to kill someone and to bring back one person in the same way, which would it be and why?

I don’t kill people but I’m much better torturing them as it is to be heard in our song "Nothing personal just business". You need to know, we are close to the Mafia and so we do everything to live a successful life in prosperity.

What means metal to you?

We put all our energy into metal and LOWER HELL and on the other side we get a great output from it. You can make friends and you run a chance to see a lot of cities in different countries all over Europe. But it is not all about metal. For example I listen to every kind of music which includes the basic instruments this causes many different influences for our own music

What is your opinion on political lyrics?

I mean, it’s a good way to express political disharmony in lyrics. When you are bothered about something you have this opportunity to spread the word around. Sometimes you achieve that people think about something which they ignored before. On the other side I don’t think that you can change the world but it is a start

What can we expect from your band in the future?
