= Laberinto and Laberinto = Latinometal. These guys from
Venezuela are living in Holland for quiet a while, Tripleee
had some questions...
You started playing in 1989 and
introduced Metalatino in Holland.
Why did you call your band Laberinto?
we have had always the idea that Laberinto is the life
of human being and it has been an important part in our
lives. You know with all the travelling, starting out
of nothing, but trying to find a way out and try to satisfy
all our dreams.
>> You came to Europe as
it was difficult to play and earn some money in Venezuela.
You choose for Amsterdam... why was that?
problem in Venezuela was not the money. I used to work
in a bank and even going to the university. But in our
case Laberinto wanted to be an international band so we
had the idea to travel to Europe and the first country
we went to was Holland. After travelling around Europe,
staying in different countries, we found Amsterdam the
most interesting city for us to begin our career. Why
Amsterdam? Because for us it is the capital of the world.
There are so many different cultures which is very positive
for the music. "Tthe cosmopolitan city".
>> Is it or was it hard
to make a living of your music?
It was and still is hard to live from the music but it
is wonderfull when you can succeed in it!
What do you hate about the Dutch / European music scene?
I don't really hate anybody or anything. I think hate
is a negative reaction.
Aiight. To which bands should we pay more attention then?
and the underground scene.
