Post Question Time-Interviews with Female Fronted bands Part 4 Reply with quote

What are you currently up to?

Hi !
All my days at the moment are filled with the writing, composing and recording of the demo for the coming album… So these are basically the days with no beginning nor end, light-of-day nor nights, thousands of cups of coffee, blank pages or pages full of notes all over my apartment, going nuts sometimes, and feeling very excited when a song materializes… Very weird days. Totally immerged in a world of my own… Which I will be happy to share when the work is done.


What was the first record you bought?

Waow… I think it was a 45-vinyl hit song called ‘En Rouge et Noir’ by a French artist named Jeanne Mas. She was posing on the cover wearing black laces and red, provocative lipstick… That was definitely a good reason to buy the disk for the little girl I was! ...This must have been a hint for my parents that I would not grow up to be a nurse, or a sister. ☺


What is your earlist memory of Heavy Metal Music?

It must be an afternoon I spent with my super-cool-long-haired British cousin as I saw him by then. I must have been something like 8 years old then. I remember watching him with my eyes filled with admiration as he was head-banging to Guns’n’Roses! I’ve always been wearing long hair after that!


Who is the most famous person you've met?

I guess it depends of points of views… Nightwish guys? Apocalyptica guys? Ville Valo?

What is your most nerve-wracking experience?

Well, I would say the mixing of my ‘Precious Moment’ Ep. I was shaking with high fever, and yet there was very little time to finish the work. I had to give my opinions and make important choices with Hiili, but my head was buzzing and I could barely stand!


Who has the worse fashion sense in the band?

Ha! I would love to make fun of one of them, but I like the style on all of them actually!… Original people for sure!


What inspired you to become a singer?

I already loved singing when I was a little girl. It’s not like anyone put the idea in my head. It was a source of pleasure for me very early already. Then as I grew up I got encouragements and I got criticisms too… But I never stopped anyway.


Who is your all time favorite actor and what is your favorite movie?

Noone and no film have replaced Viggo Mortensen and ‘Lord of the Rings’ in my heart yet. The ultimate of the ultimate.


If you could place 2 songs in a time capsule (to be opened in 100 years), what 2 songs would you choose and why?

I think I would pick ‘Smells like Teen Spirit’ by Nirvana and ‘Perfect Day Elise’ by P.J.Harvey. To me these two songs represent our times very well.


What makes you laugh/happy/smile?

Many things do! But to name a few:
Laugh: When me and my band-mates exchange each other’s fuck up after a tiring show! … With a few beers…
Happy: Feeling my beloved ones happy makes me happy.
Smile: When a charming man acts shy with me…




If you could choose one artist to do a duet with, which would it be?

I think I would pick a man with a low voice, that would complete with mine… So maybe Ville Valo from HIM, or singer from Rammstein… This type of singer anyway.

Sabrina Lead Vocalist with Stormgarde

Hi Gary,
I'm so sorry for the late answer....
Here are my answers to your questions. My english is not that good, so ask me if you don't understand somemething Smile
I wish you a great new year 2009 and all the best!!!
Sabrina

What are you currently up to?
I’m working in a residential accommodation for people who are disabled and I am making my education in that area at the moment.

What was the first record you bought?
I absolutely don’t know. Perhaps it was a Chart – Hits compilation.

What is your earlist memory of Heavy Metal Music?
When I was 6 or 7 years old my grandma went to a record shop with me and I was allowed to choose one LP. I decided to take “Steppenwolf – live”. Of course I didn’t know them, but I liked the wolf on the cover. So this was the first rock band I listened to.

What is your most nerve-wracking experince?
Every concert is very nerve-wracking for me. The whole day I cannot eat very much and I’m extremely running on adrenaline till the first song on stage, then the nervousness disappears.

What inspired you to become a singer?
I can’t answer that question because I don’t know.
I started playing flute and guitar when I was young and then I automatically started to sing. In the rough I didn’t decide to become a singer, it just happened. Singing helps me to express and assimilate my feelings and thoughts and it opens my heart and that inspires me to go on being a singer.

Who is your all time favorite actor and what is your favorite movie?
There are some actors I really like, one is Russel Crowe, and of course I like Gladiator. But there are so many really good movies Smile

If you could place 2 songs in a time capsule (to be opened in 100 years), what 2 songs would you choose and why?
Very difficult question. I would perhaps choose “The River” by Bruce Springsteen. It’s one of my favourite songs with many memories. The second one could be the Ave Maria.

What makes you laugh/happy/smile?
Friendship, family, love, warmth, the sun, another person who smiles, flowers, nature, little children, good music, animals, a good joke, moments in which the time stands still and you forget the time and everything around you

If you could choose one artist to do a duet with, which would it be?
It’s Tom Englund, the singer of Evergrey.

Do you have a Message for the Lady Rock Members?
Don’t forget to enjoy every single moment in your life, doesn’t matter what you’re doing - singing, sleeping, to scratch one’s head - don’t think about the future, you nor live in the past, nor in the future, you’re living now.

Angela Gossow Lead Vocalist with Arch Enemy

What are you currently up to?

I am wrapping up 2008 and booking lots of shows for Arch Enemy in 2009. I am also preparing to go into the studios, recording some vocals.

What was the first record you bought?

Not entirely sure. I think it was Testament "The Legacy"

What is your earlist memory of Heavy Metal Music?

Hearing Slayer on a Metal/Rock Radio station from England. That day I became a metal fan for live (Although I didnt know it was called Metal back then!)

Who is the most famous person you've meet?

Is that important? I have met 'famous' people but I do not consider them being special.. Special to me was meeting Ronnie James Dio. One of the greatest Metal singer of all times, super nice and very charming!

What is your most nerve-wracking experince?

Noticing that the battery of my wireless mic is DEAD and I cant find the spare mic in the chaos on stage.

Who has the worse fashion sense in the band?

That is so subjective. Anything is allowed! Fashion rules are for wimps and wanna-be's!

What inspired you to become a singer?

The discovery that I can sound very loud and dangerous, haha.

Who is your all time favorite actor and what is your favorite movie?

I love all the Coen Brothers movies! They got all the best actors in it!

If you could place 2 songs in a time capsule (to be opened in 100 years), what 2 songs would you choose and why?

We Will Rise and Nemesis. To make sure Michael and Christopher will be remembered in a 100 years, when kids only play guitar hero instead of real instruments.

What makes you laugh/happy/smile?

Young children when they imitate the boring, serious language of adults. Its pure comedy and makes you understand how egocentric, stupid and OLD many people become when they 'grow up'.

If you could choose one artist to do a duet with, which would it be?

King Diamond. The creepiest duet ever!

Do you have a Message for the Lady Rock Members?

Keep on rocking (your) ladies!
Love,
Angela
