Ever since Kiki met Malik at Wacken in 2017, we’ve been wanting to do a podcast episode together. And the time has finally come! On this episode of the Metal & High Heels Podcast, Kiki and Steffi talk to START A REVOLUTION-guitarist Malik Aziz about the importance of making political statements as a musician.
Furthermore, we talk about the dangers of “separating the art from the artist” and how bands and musicians that are vocal about world politics can even attract new fans. The episode begins light enough, however, with Malik telling the funny story about the role that EXIT EDEN played in our meeting and how ‘Gangnam Style’ connected his band to the music business.
