- Burcin Ak, when i met this guy he's fresh for the music he wants to play

plays them well too and he's a best friend of mine. Ozum Erdogan, we were in

Would you tell us about your band's history?
- Let me remember ... When I was 14 my older brother gave me a guitar and he
said "you playing rhythm guitars, pal" and I said what In 1998 I made my
first band with my high school friend Hakan and named it Cthulhu.We were
just playing covers and 2 years after the band was founded it disbanded.In
2002 I found a new drummer and other members too and we made another band
called Fearlord, in the mean time I was concentrating on composing my own
songs totaling 47 up till now. Unfortunately this band had the same fate.
Ultimately in 2004-2005 I met Burcin, he said "are we playing faster and
heavier songs!!" and from within our friendship born the ultimate band,
From which bands are you influenced?
- Iced Earth,Iron Maiden,Megadeth, Metallica,Blind Guardian,Therion,Nightwish,Anathema
and Sentenced But Iced Earth is special for me Iron Maiden too.
Why are Iced Earth and Iron Maiden special for you?
- Iced Special for me because JON is my IDOL shortly. They're heavier band
in the world I've ever heard. They've got a soul. Maiden is same. But Maiden
has a real king for Heavy Metal music. They're Gods Of Heavy Metal. I love
them too much. Someguys says to me Songs like Iron Maiden And Iced Earth but
it has a different soul. Maiden is same. Why i loved them to much? I
tell you. I have a friend called Korhan from Orionturk.com He's a Iron
Maiden and Iced Earth freak. He sent Iced Earth gettyburg trilogy From Iced
Earth lastest album. And I said to him this is my speacial band really. He
