Lest We Forget: In Germany, to put an i behind a word means to belittle it. What does it mean in english?
Henry: It makes it sound more fun. In english, it makes everything sound fun.
Felix: It sounds more dinky.
Lest We Forget: When did you first learn to play an Instrument and who teached you?
Henry: I learned guitar when I was 4. I played classical guitar, so I had an classical guitar teacher. These guys are mostly self-tought I think.
Felix: Yeah, I was self-tought when I bought myself a guitar at the age of 10. I just tought myself by reading a bunch of magazines, Reading books and then the inernet came along a bit later and that helped a lot, too. And singing… I did it because no one else could.
Lest We Forget: What is your favourite band at the Euroblast?
Felix: I’m definitly looking foward to see SikTh because I listened to them a while ago. Also I love Monuments. I’ve see them live a bunch of times and I’m looking foward to seeing them again for sure. Felix Martin as well because he has the same name as me and he plays the 14-string guitar. This should be interesting.
Lest We Forget: Which Radio Song do you hate the most in time?
Felix: Most mainstream stuff. I mean in UK they play no metal at the radio.
Mathieu: I hate Call me Maybe
Alex: We like the old pop music. Not the new one.
Felix: But the old pop music died a while ago.
Lest We Forget: You should start your own radio channel!
Felix: Yeah, we should! Playing good pop music, and metal! Why not?..

Lest We Forget: In which time (like the 80′ or 90′) would you like to live?
Felix: Late 70′ and early 80′, like that kind of time. Great Music, everyone is dressed really cool.
Lest We Forget: What do you first notice when you meet new people?
Henry: I think people have a way of determinant someones personality quite quicky, so I don’t now if you can put a word on it but i guess then you decide if you like someone or not depend of what they say.
Felix: I like people who smile a lot. Smiling is very welcoming.
Lest We Forget: If you have the ability to make a new law, what would it be?
