What was the 1st band you saw live in concert and did it make any kind of impact on you?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: The first band I saw live was MEGADETH. I started playing guitar at fourteen because of that show back in 1994. After a few months I stopped because I realized it was way more complicated than I expect it would be. Then when MEGADETH came back in 1995 I knew I had to start playing again no matter what and start a band as soon as my abilities as a guitar player let me perform.
Brian Rademacher: Tell us a little about your past as a child?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: I am an only child. My parents get divorced when I was 2 years old, but they were always present for me. I grew up in the suburbs, thirty minutes from the capital federal where all the economic transactions take place in Argentina. So it was pretty calm.
Brian Rademacher: How were you in high school?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: Not to social that I remember; always doing my thing not following trends. I started listening to heavy metal at age eleven or twelve. My first album was "Appetite for Destruction" (GUNS N ROSES) and then METALLICAīs "Black" album. After that I got into MEGADETH and then every metal album I could get.
Brian Rademacher: Did you first start out singing or playing guitar?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: Playing guitar first. I started playing at fifteen but had my first serious band when I was seventeen or eighteen years old called "WINTER DREAMS". A lot of the material that was recorded in DREAM MASTERs first album came from then; almost 80% of the songs. Obviously if you listen to the demos from "WINTER DREAMS" they are not going to sound like DREAM MASTER as the songs evolved a lot during the years.
Brian Rademacher: What was the name of your very first band as a kid?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: I played in a couple of bands, "MILLENIUM" and "WINTER DREAMS". That was from1997 till 2001 when DREAM MASTERS was formed.
Brian Rademacher: What was the first song that you learned on guitar?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: The first song I learned on guitar was "Symphony of Destruction" from MEGADETH. That was the only song that I could play at the time, not including Marty Friedmans solo, that was light years from what I could play. Then after a few months my abilities grew a lot and I could play "Holy Wars" (The Punishment Due) and I was like, "this is it, now I can play!".
Brian Rademacher: DREAM MASTER is known as a power metal band, does that bother you that people categorize bands in different genres?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: Not really. Every person has a different interpretation of things. I think that we are a heavy metal band that has some stuff from power metal, and a couple of things from thrash. Apart from that itīs all music and if itīs in-tune and in-tempo, every person has a different angle to it.
Brian Rademacher: What are your feelings on censorship?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: That sucks. We had a lot of that in the 70īs and beginning of the 80īs when the military government was in Argentina. Fortunately that is no more and also I was too little to remember.
Brian Rademacher: Tell us one thing that really pisses you off?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: I donīt like someone telling me what to do or forcing me to do something without letting me think and decide (for myself).
Brian Rademacher: And what makes you the most happy?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: Playing metal music makes me the happiest person in the world.
Brian Rademacher: If you had a chance to get on a dream tour what bands would be on that bill and why?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: That would be with METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX because they are the bands that influenced me when I was growing up and inspired me to play guitar and write music.
Brian Rademacher: Do you feel that DREAM MASTER is accomplishing what they set out to do?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: We set to write the best music that we can, and so far we are doing it. Obviously I feel that we are not even close to our peak though.
Brian Rademacher: What is a fantasy come true for you?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: DREAM MASTER doing World tours and having one or two children with my wife.
Brian Rademacher: Do you feel you have to make it in America to reach your goal?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: I feel that it would be a boost for us and also because the music business is more professional than here and we would be learning a lot of things.
Brian Rademacher: With the new CD what song do you like to sing the most and why?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: On guitar I would say "Never Give Up" because it has different rhythm stuff on it. My favorite song for singing is "Spread Your Wings" just because its the toughest for me on this album and I like the challenge.
Brian Rademacher: Well Ezequiel I would like to congratulate you once again on the new CD "Spread Your Wings". Would you like to say anything before we go?
Ezequiel Wiurnos: Thank you again and thanks for giving us the chance to let people from the U.S. read about our thoughts and to know about our music. And we would like to play in the U.S for you as soon as we can. For now you can get "Spread Your Wings" from www.CDINZANE.COM and the latest news from www.dreammaster.com.ar.
