BAEST take on the A-Z interview

Our A-Z challenge is a fun way to get to know the many bands and artists around! Here its the turn of Baest to tell us all about themselves!

A song that made you want to make music?

Eye of The Beholder, Metallica

We played our hometown Aarhus, and was the first Danish heavy band to sell out the venue (voxhall) in pre-sales. This unlocked an AK-47 vodka. Unforgettable!

Playing for 18,000 people at Copenhell 2019 (It’s on Youtube, check it out!) 

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

Rape The Blessed

Easiest song you wrote?

Necro Sapiens title track – the arrangement was a bitch, but the riffs felt natural for everyone to learn!

Favourite song in your set?

Ego Te Absolvo? (man, we wrote 30 songs, don’t make us choose)
