PERSONAL QUESTIONS !   Where did you grow up and how was your childhood? I grew up in Sofia. I had an enchanting childhood full of dreams and adventures.   How was your school time you were rather the good student or the break clown ? I was one of the best students. At this time I found my passion for metal and I became one of the best metalheads.   How did your parents react when you started making metal music? did they support you and how do you feel about your music today? My parents grew up in time where this music was considered as a “damaging propaganda”. Their suspiciousness towards the music side of my life do not fade.   After the defense of my Ph. D. they silently accepted that the heavy metal do not lead to any life-threatening diseases and that I most probably do not eat bats during my concerts. After the release of our album in Bulgarian my parents were convinced that I do not appeal the fans to commit a suicide (all of these things were described in the progressive socialistic press). Until recently, my granny (after she was watching some kind of TV series) warned me well-intentionally but with a very serious tone that I have to be very careful there, behind the curtains on the stage, because lots of dangerous things happen there!   Would you be successful in making music as a musician? I already succeeded to fulfil my dreams as a musician. I recorded 5 albums, I toured in the most of the European countries, I played at Wacken Open Air. I will continue to follow my new goals because metal is a way of life, a philosophy, and an everlasting adventure.   Are you someone who loves the hustle and bustle of the big city? or rather looking for peace and relaxation in nature? I like to live on speed at the edge of the wave in the big city. It has a good side – concerts, friends, games. Usually I have no time for relaxation.   But I love walking in the woods with a gunshot as well.   Do you actively practice sports or are you more of a passive spectator? I used to practice fencing but now I prefer the shotgun.   When it comes to your physical well you can cook or let you cook for you ? I can cook very well but usually I don’t have time enough.   What does your environment tell you about your passion for metal (friends / family / colleagues) ? My family and my friends support my passion for metal. My colleagues accept it somehow let’s say in a normal way. Ha ha ha. There are different target audiences in my environment.   How do you see the problem with the haters on the internet who have to announce their mental garbage in anonymity always and everywhere? I accept criticism but I do not care about the haters. The more popular becomes a band the more haters it gains. :)   What do you think about the internet in general? a blessing or a curse?   We live in a new modern era, where everything is one click away from us. It could be somewhere in the middle between blessing and curse. It depends on your goals and your toolkit for usage, and on some ethical principles as well. Internet provides a great way of promotion but it also provides free music. We should focus on the idea is to support a bit more the artists. There is much more passion when you buy your music. Support metal bands and buy their music!   What would you personally like to do in your life? I would like to write - lyrics, music, and books. I would also like to tour with the band.   Which question would you like to have answered and why? Where you do not plan to tour? Because I love the exotics. The answer is: we do not plan to play soon in North Korea, Saudi Arabia, and the Philippines.   Bulgaria My home country. Austria The country I finished my education. Sirene I love the Greek mythology but I am not into sympho metal. Ariana My beer Beer or Water Lots of beers. Sweti Georgi Rotunda The oldest building in Sofia nearby which I pass every day.
