How did the band come to be?
The history of our relationship, how we got to know each other, goes way back to the past.
Initially, it was not music at all what put us together. Our paths crossed because of our common “research/obsession” of a mysterious entity that we inherited from our parents.
And this “research” was later on the main impulse to found Blitz Union.
Do you have any releases coming up this year?
We have released our new, second EP “NOT PROUD” on 16th of April which closed another chapter of Blitz Union. However, you can expect new music, in various forms to be released till this fall - Then we would like to start another chapter of Blitz union in big style! - We would like to release our very first, debut, full-length album.
What is something you want listeners to take away from your music?
Anything they need to take away from it at the given moment they are listening to. You can never plan in advance how the listener will interpret the song. That’s what I love about doing the music - the various feedback which you received - sometimes it is very interesting and exciting what can be found in your music.
With everything that is going on in our world what is one cause or organization that you are passionate about?
I cannot think about some specific example, but in general - I am passionate about everyone who cares about the whole, who cares about life in general and does not focus exclusively on their personal profit. I have huge respect for people like this.
What is your writing process like?
I usually bring some lyric ideas with a very simple instrumental. If everyone likes it, we do the general arrangements together. Once the main structure of the song is done and agreed, Schtorm (bassist, producer) starts to work on the final production of the song.
In regards to the themes of our songs and inspiration itself - It is directly connected to the overall story of Blitz Union. As mentioned in my first answer, there is a background “research” of a mysterious entity (let’s call it/him “Mr.Blitz” for now) which was actually the main reason for Blitz Union’s foundation. There were a lot of unusual events which happened to me which led to some kind of communication with this force. We are still learning about what it means and going to reveal how those events influenced our music. There will be a lot to be found out by fans around the Union and our story which we can’t wait to start sharing.
To follow up with the last question, what inspires your sound?
We were all raised on Nu-metal bands and generally rock/metal bands which have been popular around year 2000 (Korn, Mudvayne, Static-x, Rammstein etc.). So I think the foundations of our songs come from there. But since we also love the new wave of electronic music, electronic dance music (EDM), we implement its typical elements into our songs too. So we’ve started to call it EDM-Rock.
Energy-driven rock riffs + EDM catchy hooks = Blitz Union’s EDM Rock (Laughter).
Anything you would like to tell our readers?
I would like to tell that those who are not afraid to ask themselves unpleasant questions and who have the courage to face their personal but also external problems - are more than welcome in our Union and can contact us directly at any time and contribute their knowledge and experience. There are lots of exciting things regarding our story/research of Mr. Blitz coming your way.
