3) We sound like
In terms of the music, there is a lack of electric guitar/bass guitar in this record. We try to have a rock/hard rock sound without these two fundamental musical instruments. So we use a distorted Hammond for rhythm parts and a Rheem key bass for bass parts. This is a keyboard-driven project/record. We try to sound like rock/hard rock bands from the seventies.

4) Discography
Zantea Chronicles: The Dream Dominator.

5) Influences
Deep Purple, Rainbow, Uriah Heep, Styx, Yes, Toto, Aphrodite's Child and all the Rock/Hard Rock/Prog/Pomp Rock bands of the ’70s.

6) What do you write about?
This record is based on a story by Myrto Gregoriadi. I dreamed of the main character, Sirin, and Myrto wrote the story for me. It is the struggle of a Princess against her father, King of Mirandor, Morzan and the lord of darkness, Vosar, to free herself and her mother’s soul and bring peace to the kingdom.

7) Your favourite live performance so far
Unfortunately we have not done live shows with this project. I hope to do some live shows in the future to present the album to the audience.

8) Tell us a funny story that happened in studio or on stage
There were many but I wouldn’t like to share any… :)

9) Your favourite records
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - The Beatles, The Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd, The Crimson Idol - WASP, Operation: Mindcrime - Queensr├┐che, Toto IV - Toto.

10) A musician you would like to meet for a beer
Ray Manzarek.

11) What would you ask backstage if you were the most important band on earth
To help us and make life easier to all the members of the band.

Thank you very much, I hope you enjoy our new record!
