We will ask some not-so-serious questions to every band performing at this festival. We are happy that they will play with us, also they are happy that they will play with us. We are happy together. Let's love each other, and let's love this festival. Keep supporting it because it wouldn't be possible without you!

Alan – Hi gang. When did you hear about this festival?

Peter – In November 2023, when we were asked if we could play there.

Alan – When you heard about the festival, did you look at the previous ones? 1 rare you learning about South of Heaven just now?

Peter - Yes, we always check out the fests we haven’t heard of before, to see where it’s located exactly for calculating travel costs etc, and to get a picture of it in general, what bands play there, etc.

Alan – I ask this question every time, with every year, so I will ask it again. Have you ever played in a quarry? What do you think about it?

Peter – Not really, so we’re really looking forward to it. Personally I like these special locations, especially 1 fit is somewhere outdoors, in the wild etc.

Alan – Tell us about some interesting places where you have already played a concert or a festival. For example, a train, a plane, a ship, a jet…..?

Peter - I don’t know if a ship can be considered an extraordinary venue nowadays, but we’ve played on one. Actually there’s a popular concert venue in Budapest, called A38, which is a ship anchored along the bank of the Danube, that’s where we had a gig. And last year in Croatia we played at Goathell fest which took place inside a 19th century fortress next to the sea in Pula, that was also kinda special.  

Alan - More than 6 months have passed since the beginning of 2024, so what's new, and interesting for you? Album, line-up change, etc...?

Peter – We’re constantly booking shows and fests for this year, in March we’ll do a short run supporting God Dethroned in Europe, and in summer we’re heading to different festivals in Hungary and in Europe (including yours 🙂). Meanwhile we’ve also started working on our fourth album.

Alan – What will you bring to South of Heaven? Thought as in the repertoire? Or even if you bring a surprise, can you hint about it?

Peter - We will deliver a best-of set from our strongest songs, focusing on our latest record and our line-up will be special, as our drummer, Csaba’s first child will be born around that time, so we’ll be playing with a replacement on drums.  

Alan – What do you do when you're not playing?

Peter - All of us have regular jobs, Csaba works as an event manager for the Hungarian National Theater, László, the guitarist deals with logistics for a transportation company, Gábor, the bassist is an agricultural engineer, and I’m a teacher at a secondary school.

Alan - Your corner, your homeland - how are you doing there? And can you say/write something interesting about your homeland?

Peter – Hungary is a small but very beautiful country with lots of great underground metal bands, delicious spicy food and Palinka (the brandy of Hungary). More or less, we will show a bit of each one: the metal part is obvious, but our merch includes some 1ft he finest handcrafted chili sauces 1ft he country and we also always carry a small bottle with us to get us warmed-up and if anyone’s interested in tasting it.

Alan – Is there anything you‘re going to tell about yourself that you haven‘t said or written anywhere else?

Peter - No, I think that’s enough about us for now, the rest we will show on stage. :)

Alan – What or who are you most looking forward to at South of Heaven?

Peter - It has always been a real pleasure to play in the Czech Republic, I think this country has a very dedicated and open-minded metal audience, (and the finest beers in Europe, in my opinion) so we really look forward to play for you again. As for the bands, we don’t really know of any of them, so practically we’re curious about the performers, as well.  

Alan – Thanks for the interview for us and the South of Heaven festival goers. See you on stage. With me for sure, I'm the one who introduces it all and when the time comes, kicks you off the stage to make room for the next band.

Peter - Thank you very much, see you in the quarry moshpit!
