4) What are Brigade M's musical influences and favorite bands?

Some of our favorite bands are Manowar, Blue Eyed Devils, Landser, Toy Dolls, Type O Negative, Kiss, Negative Approach, The Ramones, Burzum, Skrewdriver, Bound for Glory, Death in June, Wagner, Kraftwerk, Absu, Zetazeroalfa, Wagner and Combat 84.

6) What was your best concert?
That's hard to say. We are a real live band and our setlist consists of own songs as well as covers from bands as Metallica, Bound for Glory, Landser and Skrewdriver. If we play in front of an enthuasiastic audience it mostly benefits our enthusiasm and stage-power as well. We don't care to play for 60 or 600 people, we play to spread a message, and not for simple entertainment. Everybody who's seen us perform knows what we mean with that.

We encourage everyone to spread nationalist music on a big scale as possible. Brigade M is in no way interested in copyrights, royalties or personal fame, our prior aim is to get the message across. And this most importantly to people outside the RAC-music scene. So copying CDs and MP3's only benefit the movement. Bands complaining about such things are rock stars, not political soldiers.

 
8) Is Brigade M part of a organisation?

No! As a band we are completely independent. We try to get our national-revolutionary message out to as many different people and organisations within and outside of the'nationalist' movement. The Brigade M bandmembers are active within various organisations as individuals though bear in mind that music is just one of many ways of resistance, and should not be considered as the most important one. We strongly encourage everyone to get educated and involved within the nationalist movement.
