Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
I play in a thrash metal band called Sufosia. Sufosia was founded in 2006. Since then We've played numerous gigs and festivals across Croatia and a few in neighbouring countries. In 2009 Sufosia appeared in the TV show "Garaža" (eng:"garage") on Croatian national television (HRT) with a 5-song live performance. We've also played on the biggest metal festival in the region - the Slovenian MetalCamp. Sufosia appeared in inteviews on several other TV and radio shows. In late 2007 the band came out with the first demo "Chaotic Dreams", and in March 2011 We've released our first full-length album "Inspiration Breakdown", which was noticed by the worldwide thrash metal scene. A few days before Christmas Eve 2011 Sufosia released a new single called "The Chistmas Prayer" and premiered their first video that depicts the life of homeless and forgotten individuals in Croatia's modern capitalist society. With their intense and technicaly virtous live performances Sufosia has established itself as one of the biggest bands on today's Croatian thrash metal scene.

Metallica, Van Halen, Pink Floyd, Jeff Beck,
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
A few thousand people. A festival in Texas.
The most memorable performance was the smallest one. There were around 15 people, but they all climbed on stage with us and banged the hell out of them. Respect.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
Hawaiian music! For the mood. Something to go with the cocktails.
