Interview of Hansi on Solid Rock

Harris Bakopoulos from Solid Rock has interviewed Hansi to discuss of the upcoming album, the orchestral project and Demons And Wizards. There is not big news, just some confirmations :

  • The album is supposed to be released in September 2010.
  • The title can be something like "Punishment Coming" or "A Storm To Come"
  • The songs are progressive, with modern touch but they are more on the typical band side than "A Twist In The Myth" and epic moments like in "A Night At The Opera"
  • They have checked several different orchestras for the orchestral project and they'll do first recordings as well during the next 12 months and still this is going to be the album which comes afterwards
  • The probably play with a real orchestra for the orchestral album tour, "And Then There Was Silence" could be a very attractive song to be played by an orchestra and probably have some voices on it as well

This summer you are going to to visit Athens once again to play in "Rocking Athens Festival" with Heaven And Hell, Testament, Gojira and two promising Greek bands, Mencea and Descending. How do you feel about that?

It's a blast! It's really a great time for us to play some good music to good people and play with great bands. Because this is a very special package. There are some great festivals all over Europe but I do have the feeling that this one is a strong package and will find a lot of attention...
