“Dem Einfluss dieser Gottfigur [Dionysos] auf die Romantik oder Philosophen wie Friedrich Nietzsche folgend, begibt sich das 2004 vom früheren Persephone-Gitarristen ins Leben gerufene Unternehmen auf eine Reise in die tiefe Welt der Mythen wie auch der Schauerliteratur, was perfekt zu den rockigen Songs passt, die (…) ebenso berauschend wirken wie die süßen Kelche des Dionysos.”

Q: Which vocalist are you most inspired by and why?

A: thanks a lot for your question! Many very different vocalists have influenced my own style of singing, i guess some of the most important influences of mine are Lycourgos Angelopoulos (The Greek Byzantine Choir), Joe Papa (Controlled Bleeding), Mel Tormé, Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Brendan Perry (Dead Can Dance), King Diamond (Mercyful Fate), Jim Morrison, Johnny Cash, Jeff Buckley, Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave and João Gilberto. And why? I listened to their art of singing for many years and I learned very much about different styles & nuances of expression and technique.
