Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
In 1994 from the ashes of LEVIAL (our old death metal band) we deciced to form OUIJA because we needed another way to communicate our feelings and the different changes about the concept of our music in that moment…so OUIJA born. In 1997 was released our first album under the Spanish label Repuse Rec, currently we are working on our new mini-cd that will be released in December of this year by Xtreem Music… the current line up is: Map (guitar), Murcilag (guitar), Fulgur (drums), Aldromk (bass) and Midgard (vocal).
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
Our sound is only Black Metal without more tags… we like the old school very much, bands as Slayer, Kreator, Sepultura (old), Morbid Angel, Sabbat, Mayhem, Bathory, Rotting Christ, Emperor, Entombed (old) and so on...their sound and attitude always will be in our hearts but we like a lot swedish black metal as Dissection, Dawn, Sacramentum, Sargoth, ect
