Interview  with  Fyrecross done  by  Patrick

1.How are  things  in Greece  going these days?Hello   please
introduce  yourself  to  the  readers?

-Hails! Greece is very hot at this time of the year! We are Fyrecross and we play Heavy Metal.

2.At  what  age  did you  first  start  listening to  metal  music?And
who  were  some  of the  first bands you listened to?

-We all started listening to Rock and Metal from a very young age, around 10-15 years old. Some of the bands we listened to are Led Zeppelin, Scorpions, Iron Maiden and Deep Purple.

3.When  did you all get the  idea  to  start this  band and how  did
you  all  choose Fyrecross  as the  band  name?

-Our guitarist and our ex singer wanted to start a NWOBHM cover band so we all came together via an ad we posted on the internet. We chose the name later on, because we thought it was fitting for the style we wanted to play back then.

4.Who  would you  say are  Fyrecross biggest  influences?

Anything from 70s and 80s music is an influence, but the truth is we adore a little more the NWOBHM movement!

5.Burn Them To The Ground  is the  bands  debut  Mcd  how  long  did it take  the band to write  the music  for the  debut  release?

-We actually wrote the songs in a few months but the release was actually delayed for 2 years because of our ex-singer, Apostolis, departing and some issues beyond our control.

6.Who  usually  takes  care  of  writing  the  lyrics for  the band?

Anyone in the mood for it actually!

7.Does  Fyrecross play  live  very  often  if  yes  what  have  been some  of your  most  memorable  shows  over the  years?

-We try to play live as often as possible in any city in Greece. All of them were special to us, if we could, we'd choose them all!

8.Are  their  any upcoming  shows  or tours  coming up  in  support of  Burn Them To The Ground   release?If  yes  where  will  the  band be  playing  and  who  are  some  bands you will  be  sharing the  stage  with?

Our next assault is in Helsinki for Heavy Metal Cauldron in October, with some very special bands including Exciter and Venom inc.

9.What  does  underground  metal   mean  to  you?

True underground Metal means that you shouldn't pretend to be something you're not and always do whatever pleases you.

10.Besides  working  in  Fyrecross  do you  or  any  of the  members  work  with any other  bands?

We have worked with many bands over the years but currently we are focusing on the full album of Fyrecross.

11.I  know  Greece  has  a  huge  death,black metal  scene  but  what
is the  traditional heavy metal scene  like?

-It has a very small but dedicated audience. It is also very positive to see other young bands like us take the stage and play the music that we love!

12.Who  are  your  all-time  favorite  Greek  bands  and  are there any  new  bands you  feel  the  readers  should  check  out  soon?

Spitfire, Strikelight, Dark Nightmare, Sacral Rage and Speedrush. They should definitely check out bands like Serpent Lord and Hailsteel!

13.Besides   bands  are  their  any  honest,reliable Greek  labels or  distro's  you  feel  the  readers  should  check  out  soon?Are their  any  good  Greek fan,web-zines  you  could  recommend?

There are many great Greek labels like Eat Metal, No Remorse and Floga Records. Greek webzines are too many to choose only some!

14.Thank  you  for  taking  the  time  to  fill  this  interview  out  do you  have  any  final  words  for the  readers?

Thanks for reading and keep banging that head! Heavy Metal!!
