first off I just want to congratulate you on your new album. To
new fans could your please fill us in on the history behind it
It's part 2 of our tribute to 80s underground metal. The first one
was a great success, and we just want to continue to have some fun
with the mucic that we grew up on. So far everybody seems to think
this was good idea...
has your new album been received by the media?
positive. Nobody else does this, we are unmatched in this area. So
we HAVE to do it, and everybody loves it! Sometimes life is very
know artists are not happy to categorize their music, but how
would you describe your music to an outsider?
Metal with 80s roots!
does your inspiration come from, both musically and lyrically?
the inside. It's the desire to create something you can
enjoy yourself, plus making other people happy.
topics do you deal with in your lyrics and why?
stuff. Go figure...
has produced and mixed the album, and are you pleased with the end
album (like all other albums we did) were produced and mixed by
the MIDAS TWINS (Andy Brings and Haan Hartmann). Great guys, great
has done the artwork? And how important do you feel it is to have
a great cover?
good friend Thorsten Brauer did the artwork. Very eyecatching and
It is important but as important as in the vinyl days. We still
put a lot of hard work in the cover and the booklet, to give the
fans value for money.
you have any touring plans?
but nothing is confirmed at the moment. Everything will be taken
care of, and YOU will be the first to know!
do you feel about the co-operation with your label, and are you
Everything is cool! No bullshit, no lies, no empty promises. Hard
work on both ends.
internet is a very important source for many music fans - how do
you use the internet and how important is it for you and other
use the internet a lot, but since I am older than 17 I still
prefer to BUY music and read PRINTED magazines...no offense, I
like and use new technologies, but I will defend some old school
stuff until the bitter end!
do you see the metal scene at the moment?
there a metal scene? I don't really think so...it's a mixture of
"scenes", everything blends into everything. The concert
scene is happening, the CD market is DEAD, but I donīt really
care, I just do what I do!
