Mina intervjuer / Permalink / 0
Have any of you played in other bands? Hi! Thanks for the chance given to us to be here! Yep, we played in different bands: mainly as Helloween tribute in early days, but even in other projects (Tomi sings with Eldritch's drummer in a Prog Band, and About me, I am the mastermind of Earthcry Prog opera, for example..;)
How is it that you started playing music? It was kinda natural: most of us started playing as children, you is something you just can't let go!
What are your names? / Who plays what? / How old are you?
Ahahaha, everybody is always asking for real names!! Well, here they are:
Tomi Fooler -Vocals/Keyboards
Charlie Dho -Bass
Henry "Sydoz" Sidoti -Drums
Andy "K" Cappellari -lead guit
Fabri "Blackie" Taricco -Rythm Guit
about ages, we can just tell we are old enough to get liquors!! Ahahahaha
Have you had other previous members?
Yes. Unfortunately line up changed a lot during years, mainly due to Tomi's needings to play classic power metal: 
SkeleToon was born as his Solo Project and me (Sydoz) + Charlie were always with him, so no definite line up set for those days..
but later we decided to bring the project on the road, and after many changes, we reached our standard line up.
Where are you from? Italy. Area is called "Liguria", settled in northern-west side of Italy.
What year did the band form? 2007 as Helloween tribute band, 2011 as proper one.
What's your style of genre? Classic Power Metal, sometimes called "Happy". We love to say we play "Nerd Metal", cause it's power metal with lyrics which uncover our love for geek's stuff!!
What inspires you? Can't say. Just everyday life, I suppose.. We just try and tell what we love or hate, you know..;) And we love to have fun, doing it!!! Ahaha
Do you have other interests of work outside the band? Yeah, of course! Tomi is a Parkour Instructor & passionate surfer. Charlie loves to collect old vintage watches and I love everything about classical music, I also collect old vinyls about that. Blackie is a Wine taster (you can notice at every gig, Ahahahah) while Andy has a great passion for Japanese Culture. We are like a big family, with different tastes and interests..but first of all, we love to make fun one of each other!!
Are you looking for a booking agency? In Finland? Or Sweden? Yes!! So please if you know someone, give him our contact!!!
Have you done any covers live? Yes! During last EU TOUR with DGM, TRICK OR TREAT & SECRET SPHERE we played "The Trooper" from Iron Maiden just to warm up the crowd. But in years we played "power metal versions" of songs like "Reach out for a hero"(Shrek's ost ) "The misfits &a the holograms" (classic manga) or classic power metal songs as HELLOWEEN's  "eagle fly free" & "Carry on" by ANGRA.
What advice would you give other bands or artists?
Just play. Nowadays young musicians are in a lack, so please don't give up:
Music is difficult but worths it!!
And we want some new band playing live so we can go to their gigs!!
