What was the biggest fun during the making of the last album?
Apart from the great time spent in the studio with our producer Simone Mularoni, the biggest fun is always hearing the songs come to life. To see how good sounds and arrangements make the songs start to sound great after months of listening to ugly demos!
If we want to know you, which song do we have to listen to? And why?
I would say “Devil on my Shoulder”. It may lack our heavy and punky vein but I think that it is still very representative of Hell in the Club, musically and lyrically. It’s a very melodic and straight hard rock song.
The music industry has changed a lot (or so they say). What did it bring you? And what not?
Yeah we have seen the music industry change. We started to play and make albums with our other bands at the end of the 90’s so we really saw the scene change year after year. The fan letters started to become e-mails and the cd’s started to become illegal mp3’s. Now things are changing again since – finally – the digital side of the business is starting to be smartly legalized so it seems there might be some hope also for the underground in the end. Apart from the same things we can say about this matter, there are two sides of this coin as usual. We sell less cd’s but we have a totally different way to promote the band thanks to internet, mostly for free. So yeah… times change, but the ways to promote and push your band are still out there.
Who is the best musician in the world nobody has heard of yet? And why will this change very soon?
Uh this is a hard question ahah! Probably I’m in the part of the world where still nobody knows about this great musician! 🙂 I mean there are a lot of great bands with great musicians around. But these days – getting back to your previous question – it’s pretty easy to show yourself… so if this great musician does exist, he’s already out there making some YouTube videos or already on a stage!
She tells you she will decide on a 5-song-mixt tape if there is going to be a second date. Which 5 would you put on?
Ah! That’s tough! I will be honest. Music is very important for me, so a 5-song-mix tape would be a very delicate way to talk about myself. And to tell you the truth 5 songs are really not enough to talk about about myself eheh! Anyway I would go with 5 songs I used to love when I was a kid. Some classics…just to say… “hey, this is where I come from. Wanna see where I went from there? Gotta see me again for the next mix tape/date!” 🙂
So here is the tracklist Guns n’ Roses – Welcome to the Jungle, Motley Crue – Dr. Feelgood Aerosmith – Magic Touch, Alice Cooper – Poison & Bon Jovi – You Give Love a Bad Name
What’s up for the next couple of months?
We will make some gigs supporting the last album and then I think that in the meantime we will start looking at some new material. Just to check if the time is right to write new songs. But we don’t wanna stop yet, so we will keep on going at full speed!
