Mary-Ann: We do it with love!
Almost 20 years have passed since Mary-Ann played together for the last time . They formed in Kouvola back then, turning from a Rock’n’Roll and Punk inspired band to the Gothrock band To Die For, where only two of the Mary-Ann members still are active. Back then there was no room for Mary-Ann, but now the time is right to bring it back to life. And the passion for this band is shining in the members´ eyes. A reunion with almost the complete original Line-Up. Only Tonmi Lillman (Otus-Lordi) is missing, as he died in 2012. We talked with the band at the Pioneerifestivaali about their first gig after 16 years in Kouvola, and about their future plans for Mary-Ann. >> more/mehr

Max Jason Mai: “I don´t like to be limited”
Miro Šmajda aka Max Jason Mai is quite known in his home country, as he participated in the Czech and Slovakian Idols contest 2009, and he got to #2 with his Rock voice. This year he represented Slovakia at the Eurovision Song Contest, where he caused quite a stir with his Metalcore Sound. The charismatic 23-year-old, however, does not seem to care too much about ESC and finds his new image and his debut CD much more important to achieve international fame. >> more/mehr

After so many years of stability, everything goes topsy-turvy: Mely from Southern Austria, namely Andreas Mataln (Vox/Git), Peter Lengfeldner (Vox/Git), Martin Mataln (Vox/Keys), Daniel Huber (Bass) and Hannes Helmut Ganeider (Drums) indeed have something to talk about, for example what it means to have a family member in the band, line up changes, touring or the new album "Portrait of a Porcelain Doll". Let´s have front man Andi reveal it all... >> more/mehr
