With the use of your synth and pedal for some of the sounds, what products do you use to amplify your sounds to create the eerie effect?
- "I use a combination of heavy distortion combined with a chorus effect, reverb and of course my own whisper/screaming voice. You can use how much effects you like but in the end it's your own voice that counts."

With the use of film bytes and what not, how did you ch se the particular movie bits that are used to help correspond the message of the song?
- "In most cases I try to synch the theme of the track together with the movie samples and in some cases I just pick something random and add for the fun of it. It all depends on what is available."

How do you define the lyrics in your own personal opinions?
- "My lyrics are often based on horror movies or partially on horror movies and in some cases it's my sick mind that make stuff up. Since we play "Horror electro" I try to stick to that theme."

What do you consider the epicenter in the horror community that blends music that is horror themed?
- "I'm not really sure , it seems that horror movies often have metal based music and or rock/punk so I don't really know to be honest, seems that electro and horror is kind of new or at least a bit unexplored maybe?"

Do you think horror related music has lost it's touch over time?
- "In a sense ... yes. I mean what exactly is horror related music? It seems a bit like a dying breed but when I hear horror I always think metal, don't ask me why."

How do you get the ideas for the songs that you write?
- "Usually me, x/209 and Ani just send some stuff back and forward or they make
something and send it to me and i write lyrics and record vocals and add my own drums and after that it's done. Sometimes they make all the music and I just do the vocals and lyrics. When it comes to making drums it's all trial and error for me I don't need to be in a specific mood or anything I just create."

Is the music and lyrics written by the entire band or one person?
- "Music is mainly written by all of us together but the lyrics are made by me in 9/10 cases, x/209 does add some contribution sometimes but I prefer to make my own lyrics to make them a bit more personal."

How does the band feel towards the horror genre of today?
- "I don't think we've actually thought about it to be honest."

How do you get the precision of the notes so perfectly crafted?
- "I don't have a clue really. x/209 and Ani are both very young and very talented musicians as for me...what the fuck is a note?! Just kidding but seriously I don't have a clue about notes or anything I just create what sounds good in my ears."

In the bands personal opinion, how do the instruments used today feel compared to the prior brands?
- "Good question, I don't think we have any real opinion on it or really thought about it. But today it's easier to create music without even having to use hardware or go into a huge music studio to record, so the new ones are probably better in our case at least. You can create nice tracks without even having to go into a studio."

With the instruments the band uses, and the technical aspects and what not, how is the process worked out for all band members to agree?
- "Well we are work in different programs and usually someone makes a part of a track and send it over to the others to check out and then someone else adds a piece and it continues like that. We always listen through our tracks before uploading them on example MySpace and we all have to agree that a track is good before we release it or let anyone else hear it. Even if we live apart we try to take our time and talk everyday and discuss band related issues and work on tracks etc."

How in the world do you guys get the ideas in your heads to write what you write?
- "We're a bunch of creative souls with some pretty fucked up shit in the head sometimes and that is probably why we can create what we do. Inspiration from different kinds of styles is also a thing that adds that little extra touch."
