1.GIVE US SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THE BAND HISTORY? IS IT A SOLO PROJECT?

Yes, it's a solo project, i decided to do everything on my own, because when you try to do something in a band, there's always someone to make things stagnate. But I always pay attention to external critics!

2.HOW DID YOU CHOOSE THIS BAND NAME WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

I found this name in an old book about occultism. It's an angel's name and I choose it because it doesn't sound metal.

3.YOUR DEMO CD IS ENTITLED "UNION" AND I WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU OF WHAT UNION ARE YOU ARE TALKING?

"Union" is a very vague word and i like it. It's the union between the body and the spirit, the others ans the "I", the internal peace... it's a state of mind i'd like to reach. It's also a union between different musical style.

4.IN MY REVIEW I DESCRIBED YOUR MUSIC AS A MIX OF ROB ZOMBIE, FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM AND MAYHEM'S LAST ALBUM. HAVE YOU LISTENED TO THESE BANDS? DO YOU AGREE OR NOT? WHY?

These are innovative bands, so I agree :)

5.ONE OF YOUR SONG IS INSPIRED BY A T.S ELIOT'S POEM, HOW YOU DECIDED TO DO THAT? DO YOU THINK THAT METAL FANS SHOULD UNDERSTAND IT?

I choose this poem because it deals with union (and many other things!). I hope that metal fans sometimes stop to drink and read a good book :)

6.DOES ANY MUSICIAN HELPED YOU TO THE RECORDINGS OF THIS DEMO?

No.

7.MANY EXTREME METAL BANDS EXPRESS RACISTIC IDEOLOGIES. WHICH ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THAT?

I try to understand how racist people "think" but i can't! It's sad that politics overcome music. Racists are just trendies. It's the most infortunate that they sully metal's reputation.

8.WHICH ALBUMS DO YOU LISTEN TO A LOT LATELY AND WHICH ARE YOUR 5 ALL TIME CLASSICS?

Nothing new but my 5 classics are with no hesitation : Guns "Use Your Illusion", "The Doors", "Portishead", Samael's "Passage", Mayhem's "De Mysteriis".

9.HAVE YOU DONE ANY LIVE SHOWS? DO YOU LIKE PERFORMING LIVE? WITH WHICH BAND WOULD YOU LIKE TO TOUR?

I like it very much. To play your music in front of people is a feeling that only those who did it could understand. I would like to tour with the Doors but it's quiet impossible!

10.HOW YOU HAVE DECIDED TO MAKE A COVER OF BURZUM'S "WHEN NIGHT FALLS" SONG? DO YOU LIKE TO PLAY COVER SONGS?

I don't like to play covers, but i did it for Burzum because i like its atmosphere, and it's funny to watch racists's reaction when it's a non-aryan person who plays it.

11.WHAT DO YOU LOVE TO HATE IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY?

I hate the fact that many talented bands would remain unknown because they don't respond to the mob's need.

12.WITH WHICH OTHER MUSIC DO YOU THINK METAL CAN BE COMBINED PERFECTLY AND WITH WHICH DO YOU THINK HAS NOTHING TO DO?

Everything could be associated with metal with more or less success, and all musical styles could be associated. It's narrow-minded people who kill music.

13.WHICH IS THE MOST IRRITATING QUESTION SOMEONE'S EVER DONE TO YOU AND WHICH QUESTION WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE ASKED AND NO ONE EVER DID? ANSWER IT.

No irritating question yet. The one i'd like to hear is : " what can i do to make you happy?" my answer : " let's talk about it over a drink!"

14.WHICH BOOK, YOU LIKE A LOT, WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE MADE A MOVIE?

Nothing, because i've always been disapointed by adaptations.

15.FOR WHICH MOVIE WOULD YOU LIKE TO COMPOSE THE SOUNDTRACK?

For something really strange, a sick snuff. A film that stimulates our psychopath side.

16.THANKS FOR THE INTERVIEW! I THINK THAT WE HAVE FINISHED THE INTERROGATION FOR NOW :). CLOSE THE INTERVIEW WITH A MESSAGE FOR THE READERS OF THE BEHIND THE VEIL WEBZINE.
