What drives a band that isn't all that famous and renowned to try to make a living on their music and to keep playing? Well we don't try to make a living... We know that we are so far from there. The only thing we want is to do good albums and good shows. We enjoy playing live... if somebody thinks that we can live from music in the future, we will do it, because it's what we enjoy more than anything, but we are not worried about it.
Do you have any webpages? www.BLOODHUNTER.net
What advice would you like to give other bands? Enjoy and make your music with your hearth.
What are the biggest obstacles for a band? EVERYTHING. We don't have money to record, to play far, to pay a promotion, to buy good instruments... but we have good luck and we have jobs to support this.
