"likes": my family and our pets (dogs & horse), Oliver Kalkofe & Loriot, Volker Pispers, Neues aus der Anstalt, skiing, good movies, Wisk(e)y, Kurpfalz, my band mates, meetings with good friends, music fans who take the time and listen to good songs – to think – to feel....thx for that!! The clinical centre in Freiburg, good und steady bloodtest results


"hates": Ignoramuses & egoists, people who only listen to themselves, cauliflower and other forms of stew, FDP, manipulative media and politicians, people who want to take me for a fool and don't even try to lie to me in a rational and creative way, speed traps, listless comedians (unfortunately the normal case in German tv), carnival , bad lab results, BAL


Why are Lanfear Metal? Because there was no more space left in other drawers. Furthermore we have Kai.....more Metal is simply impossible!


Which is your favourite Lanfear song and why? Changes from day to day. Currently some songs of the forthcoming album such as The Reverend and Disharmonic Consonance. These songs convey a splendid, bleak and melancholic feeling.


Why do you make music? Because nobody in my first band wanted to sing and I got the shit end of the stick. Somehow I got caught in this sector.


What is your motto? Accept or change!


Which influences shaped your taste of music? Wether or not Rock and Metal from the 80s and 90s. Back then it was no dissent to listen to Van Halen and Slayer. Seems impossible nowadays. Maybe people are right and really everything was better at that time ;-).
Main focus is and was the Prog genre! Fates Warning, Dream Theater and Psychotic Waltz largely affected me. Ray Alder still is one of my biggest idols :)
Jazz and some well composed pop songs also sometimes find their way in my ear canal.


Your hobbies: music, movies, PS3, my family, bothering my head about all the world and his brother, biking with muscular strength, sleeping, filling in questionnaires

What inspires you? People who love what they do.


Favorite food? stockfish with chickpeas salad (Potuguese speciality) cooked by Mum, yummy! Also a big fan of Greek cuisine :)

First record: If I answer that truthfully you'll kill or (even worse) laugh at me! 
Whatever! I "believe" it was Striper – Soldiers Under Command or Sigue Sigue Sputnik – Flaunt it . Don't know exactly what was first (or gradually superseded it). It got better after that.


Fave demo (tape): Corrosive – Conductor's Lullaby ;-)


Fave fanzine: RNZ (Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung)


Best album: Psychotic Waltz - A Social Grace


Best concert: Pffff, there were so many.....but I think Rush in Stuttgart (2005) was an absolute highlight.
