Athenscalling.gr: O.k  We are all living in a time of terror in Ukraine … war, horror … what do you have to say about everything that is happening in the world?

Richy…Dead Richy Gein ( B.Z.f.O.S ): Way more terrifying than any movie could be. It’s a disaster – and all men-made…Really going downhill fast at the moment and I have nothing clever to say here. My views at the feature has never been more pessimistic

Athenscalling.gr: Let’s talk now about the music of your band and I will ask you… Why you chose to follow this genre of music?

Richy…Dead Richy Gein ( B.Z.f.O.S ): For us it’s not a genre – it’s a life-style. It’s all love and passion for what we are doing. My deep rooted love for horror (movies, bookds etc.), make-up/costumes and rock music just merged perfectly together.

Athenscalling.gr: Do you like to hear something else genre of music?

Richy…Dead Richy Gein ( B.Z.f.O.S ): Oh yes of course – I love music in all styles and shape. From “Alice Cooper” to “the Cure”, from “Misfits” to “Tom Waits”, from “Morbid Angel” to “Lizzy Borden” etc. We are really very very open minded when it comes to genres and styles – I also listen to a lot of classical music and movie soundtracks – but also “Yungblud” or “Machine Gun Kelly” are something that I can enjoy.

Athenscalling.gr: Do you believe that today the people love to hear horror punk if you have to say yes… why? And if you say no …why?  

Richy…Dead Richy Gein ( B.Z.f.O.S ): I hope so – otherwise it will be a little boring on stage. I think “Horror” was always very appreciated artform and people enjoy it all over the world. People wanna see something spectacular, a show, that gives them chills and makes them laugh at the same time – this is exactly what we are doing – we are putting on a show and try to entertain our audience as best as we can for an hour and a half.

Athenscalling.gr: 20 years old your band, it is a long time my friend, with many releases. I think … 13 Albums, 8 Singles & EPs and 2 Videos. And you’re best of all?

Richy…Dead Richy Gein ( B.Z.f.O.S ): Hmm as long as it is fun we continue – doesn´t feel like 20 years at all and our best album/song whatever has not been written yet.

Athenscalling.gr: Now let’s talk about the lyrics of your songs. On what occasion the lyrics are created?

Richy…Dead Richy Gein ( B.Z.f.O.S ): I have a scrapbook with me all the time and put in ideas whenever the come to me – on the bus, on my way to work, when I wake up at night etc. And when we are working on a song I go through them till I find a cathy, fitting idea…I m very often inspired by a horromovie or a book that I read, but also personal stuff…

Athenscalling.gr: Seven years ago, the band without makeup… and a Music Award for you … Es ist die Mit dem Amadeus Austrian Music Award 2015! How do you felt?

Richy…Dead Richy Gein ( B.Z.f.O.S ): Felt great, the party afterwards became legendary in our band history

Athenscalling.gr: Living in the past … do you remember your first album that you bought?

Richy…Dead Richy Gein ( B.Z.f.O.S ): “The Beatles – Greatest Hits” when I was about 7 years old – than I bought “Alice Cooper – Trash” and my whole world changed

Athenscalling.gr: … And your horror moment in your life till today?

Richy…Dead Richy Gein ( B.Z.f.O.S ): Watching “the Exorcist” as a kid – scared the hell out of me.

Athenscalling.gr: Let’s play now a game and if you want please fill in the blanks with any words you like… is your name and ( R )… ( I )…( C )… ( H )… ( Y)…

Richy…Dead Richy Gein ( B.Z.f.O.S ): R-eckless I-Nsecure C-harming H-umorous Y-eller

Athenscalling.gr: O.k that’s good now I want ask you about your show in NOVA ROCK… What to expect from your band live?

Richy…Dead Richy Gein ( B.Z.f.O.S ): As I said we are putting on a highly entertaining horror-rock show with a lot of theatrics and gimmicks and try make the audience scream as much as we can….

Athenscalling.gr: … Any plans for the future, about a new album, or something other interesting?

Richy…Dead Richy Gein ( B.Z.f.O.S ): Yeah – we are working on a new EP that will come out fall this year. We just signed to a new booking company and hopefully we can be touring now after all the lockdows etc. as much as possible.

Athenscalling.gr: And the last one , please Richy give your message to the people…

Richy…Dead Richy Gein ( B.Z.f.O.S ): Buy albums (not Spotify etc) go to Concerts (not only to the big festivals) and support and appreciate music from artists you are into. It all became very superficial and disposable in the last years and a lot of joy and beauty in music gets lost this way.

Athenscalling.gr: Thank you about the interview and all the best horror to you and to your band….. ha ha ha ! Thank you my friend … thank you I love your band and your music and I am a 69 years old… fan of horror!

Richy…Dead Richy Gein ( B.Z.f.O.S ): Thank you very much! That´s awesome!!!
