We got the chance to talk to Battleroar and know them a little bit better.
EM: What are the main influences of the band, both musical and lyrical?
Musically talking, I could say, that we get affected from the epic element in all kinds of music. From all different kinds of heavy metal, up to classical music.
Mostly though, from pioneers of epuc metal, like Manowar, Bathory, Manilla Road, etc.
As for the lyrics, historical and mythological themes, subjects from fantasy literature and diachronical matters, are our main influences.
EM: Which do you think was your most important moment, as a band?
Not sure about it… I guess, some of the best moments are still while meeting fans, from all over the world who appreciate your work.
Also, the cooperation with some musicians, we were always admiring…
It’s an amazing thing to play together with people that you grew up with their music!
EM: How do you see the future of the rock scene in Europe and in your country?
I think that Europe, is full of promising bands with talented musicians that they have a lot to give, in the future.
As for Greece, it’s great to see that it’s turning into a significant force of heavy metal scene. Definitely, it deserves that!
EM: And finally, is there something you want to say to the visitors and fans of EUROCK MARATHON?
I would strongly recommend, to support actions like this cause it’s a beneficial way for everyone to get in touch with more good music by helping the bands they like to present their work.
