What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today?
I started play the guitar when I was in minor age and from the first time, I realized that this is what I want to do in my life. Music completes me and makes me a happy man!
Actually, I can’t think doing anything else!!!
What do you like to do when you are not playing music and how does that influence your creativity?
I really like going to the gym or playing soccer. These things make my mind comes down and give me the boost of composing new things!
How long has your band been around?
Almost 2 years.
Where are you based out of and how did that influence your music?
We are from Athens Greece but I can’t say that there is any impact to our music depending to our location.
How did you come up with the name of your band and what does it mean to you?
This was a very odd circumstance cause I was goofing around on the net, reading some historic religious stuff and my eyes stuck in a demon‘s name called Haagenti and I just read it backwards!
It's pretty cool don’t you think? haha
Tell me about your most memorable shows.
Our biggest gigs so far was a mini Greek tour with Dimmu Borgir last year.It was a magnificent experience and I can’t imagine anything better for a newly formed band to start with.
What is your favorite venue to play at, and do you have any places you want to play that you have not already?
My favorite venue so far is Piraeus Academy Athnes which is very nice.
For starters, I really want to play in Wacken Open Air or Hellfest cause I think these are the biggest festivals with lots of people in em.
If you could play any show with any lineup, who would be on the ticket?
I’ll go with the Arch Enemy line –up, these guys are so pros!!!
What is some advice that you would give to someone who is just getting into playing in a band and some advice that you would give to your younger self?
Be yourself, Be free, play whatever makes you happy but deliver it in the appropriate way!
If you could go back in time and give yourselves advice, what would it be?
Be patient and don’t give up!!!
Of your songs which one means the most to you and why?
I’ll go with ‘Beyond’ cause it’s the song of brutal strength and hope!
Which songs are your favorite to play and which get requested the most?
‘Alpha’ and ‘Beyond’ are my favorite but I think ‘Alpha’ is the most requested in gigs.
What is the creative process for the band, and what inspires you to write your music?
When someone comes up with an idea we are sitting down on studio and try to play it,if its good enough then we continue and try to find all the parts of the upcoming song. If its not that good we leave it behind and moving forward. As a composer of the band I don’t really know what gives me the inspiration of it,all music its just in my head and then pops out suddenly.
What kinds of messages do you like to get across in your music?
Our concept is more futuristic and fantasy-themed so when you listen to our albums our goal is to make your mind travelled by our melodies and create your own fairytale.
Do you ever have disagreements in your band, and how do you get past them?
Who hasn’t? Hopefully we are working long period of time with my team together and its not a big deal at all.
What are your plans for the future, and do you have anything that you want to spotlight that is coming up?
Now, we are in the middle of recordings for our second album which is gonna be more aggressive than ‘’Reverse Entropy’’ and of course we are waiting to get over with covid-19 and start gigging again!
