PSAB: What does the band name "Moker" mean exactly?
Moker: Moker means "sledgehammer" in dutch, hard, brutal and pounding like a sledgehammer.
PSAB: You've been around since 2003. What has changed the most in the metal scene since then?
Moker: The intensity people experience music. Internet and social media, have changed the music industry in sow many ways. People don't feel the need to come out to shows and hang out with their friends, because they allready told them everything on facebook. And offcourse the download industry is a big influence on the amount of cd's bands can sell. Internet really helped alot of bands over the years and in a certain perspective the scene also, but overall the underground scene has suffered a lot of blows. But as long as people turn up at underground shows and buy a cd from time to time, the underground will never die !
PSAB: How has the feedback been for your album Satan's Den?
Moker: Really well sow far ! We've had a lot of possitive response to it, and we are really happy with that !
PSAB: If you could tour any country. Which country would that be?
Moker: America off course, the amount of people you can reach over there, the different states, different people every day, that would be just amazing !!! On the road in America driving through all those different sceneries would be amazing !!!
PSAB: What has played the most influence on your music?
Moker: Mostly the bands we like ourselves Dying fetus, aborted, TBDM, Cannibal corpse, Misery Index.... And also a lot is negativity and aggression for wich we don't have an outlet in the real world.
PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give?
Moker: Shout out to all the people that ever bought a cd, t-shirt, came out to a show, supported us in any way... we thank you very much !!!
