1) How old were you when you first found heavy metal music?
I was around 12 y.o when I first discovered the "Heavy metal " genre and was quickly attracted to it
2) what was the first metal album that you bought?
living in a country where metal (or good music generally) is banned I have never had the chance to buy an album over there , the first metal album I received as a gift though was " Hatebreeder" by Children Of Bodom
3) What was the first concert that you went to?
the first concert I went to was Metallica's death magnetic tour back in 2009 when i first moved to Australia
4) Who is one band you want to see live?
I'd see Metallica live any day
5) If you could make one heavy metal supergroup which band members would you pick?
If I had the chance to make a super group of my favorite artists , it would be : Chuck on vocals and guitars , Alexi Laiho on guitars and Frost as the drummer , couldn't care about the bassist (sorry Jon)
6) How did you discover Hybrid Nightmares?
I met the Hybrid nightmares guys in the alley way after their DV8 gig about 2 years ago , I knew Adam before then , we bought their CD then and fell in love with it instantly , we first saw them live at a gig in Frankston
7) What is your favourite HN song and why?
My favorite HN song is "Upon The Cursed Wings " its a beautiful song with great riffs , its fast and extreme at points and gets slow and soothing , its like a little story
8) If you had to describe someone what genre we are what would you tell them?
I'd describe the band as " Melodic Blackened extreme metal " because I find all those elements in the music
9) What was your most memorable HN Gig
without exaggeration < I think I've been to %90 of HN gigs and enjoyed them all , my favorite one was at the FTG hotel , as it was local and I took my mom to see them too
10) If we were going to cover a Disney song which one would it be?
I think HN needs to cover "under the sea" from the little mermaid . it would be pretty cool
