Why are Lanfear Metal? Because Lanfear always did what Lanfear wanted to do and never sucked up to somebody! That's more metal than raising mead horns and pretending to be a viking ... or benefitting from good albums you released 25 years ago.


Which is your favourite Lanfear song and why?

Always the one I write next!


Why do you make music? I can't comprehend that there are actually people on this planet who don't make music.


What is your motto? Be true to yourself!


Which influences shaped your taste of music?
From 80s pop to 80s Metal, to (partially) 90s Metal to Prog, Jazz with absolutely no end in sight. I love music and can find something in almost every style - a pathetic junkie!


Your hobbies: music, movies, books, cooking (always with pleasure but not always tasty), web design, no problem with drinking bouts

What inspires you? No idea! Everything and nothing? Tell me if you're able to hear what it might be!


Favorite food? I'm a meat-guy, but preferably I pay more for quality. Call it sensible gulping down, hehe!
