Diese Woche blicken wir nach Kroatien. Manntra fühlt sich in vielen Genres (zum Beispiel Mittelalter, Folk und Industrial) zu Hause und gehen im Herbst (hoffentlich) auf Deutschlandtour. Sänger Marko hat sich unseren Fragen gestellt.

Who is behind Manntra?
Four old good friends who share love and passion toward the same things

If you had to put your music into a drawer and print a label on it, what would it say?
I guess it would be metal, industrial, folk and gothic.

Forget about genres for a second – Manntra’s music sounds like …?
… a thunderstorm

Which sort of mood produces the best songs?
Happiness. Some people write when they are down or depressed. For us it is the opposite.

Which instrument will surely NEVER be heard on a Manntra-album?
Bad question! We like to experiment with instruments so no restrictions here 

Which record would you want to listen to when you leave the bathroom in the morning, while last night’s hot/ lovely company is still in your bed?
In the morning something to give me a push, and at night something atmospheric to calm me down.

The Fairy-Godmother pops up in front of you and grants you a wish. What do you wish for?
Peace and happiness.

No alcohol is no solution either. What booze combination will definitely dissolve  all your troubles and issues?
I like Rakija, a Croatian strong spirit.

Who was the hero of your childhood?
An Italian comic book investigator of the macabre called „Dylan Dog“.

What is the most embarrassing/surprising record in your CD-shelf?
Music is not something you should be embarrassed about 

What’s next? Tour? Studio? Vacation? Something completely different?
Tour, studio, vacation all together I guess! It is how it always worked!
