HOT TAKES: Getting to know Mudshark

Welcome to the feature; Hot Takes! We chat to a band or artist that we have unearthed as some what of a hidden gem and allow them the chance to introduce themselves to you, the reader.

Q1 – Who is in your band?

MUDSHARK is A. STRANGR on vocals, Hagen Brüggemann on guitar and Sebastian Richards on bass. We are collaborating with various drummers for live and studio. 

Q2 – What is your take on your own sound?

We like it.

Q3 – If someone was listening to your music for the first time, what song would  you tell them to listen to and why?

NONCHALANCE is the very first song MUDSHARK wrote and the first single to be released from ZLV. It will give you a good idea on what to expect from the MUDSHARK. Fast and heavy riffs, catchy choruses, odd time signatures and beautiful vocals!

Q4 – What is the plan for 2023?

We have a few shows lined up this year, starting in London on July 30th. Sign up to our mailing list to stay up to date for future gigs. In September we will be back in the studio to record EP 2.

Q5 – What is the one song you wish you wrote?

Last Christmas by Wham. If we wrote that song, we would have all the funds in the world to put on a huge kick-ass show.

Q6 – What three bands inspired or continue to inspire you the most?

The big three, always a tough question. In previous interviews we mentioned ten bands but let’s whittle it down. The big three for us would have to be Tool, System of a Down and Lamb of God.

Q7 – Where can our readers see you live or listen to your music?

As mentioned, we are playing an intimate show in London on July 30th. Regarding music, MUDSHARK is available on YouTube and every streaming platform for your listening pleasure. 

Q8 – If your band was an animal, what would it be and why?

Gee, that’s a hard one. We’ll leave that up to you to decide…
