Ind: You band is a natural martyr with all these misfortunes, one of the band members taken to prison, the other one died. Is that your rotten Karma?
MISTWEAVER: We have been too unlucky in 2000. We were about to quit in 2000, yet things are changing to good presently. Line up got fixed with Alexander Zed on guitar, Alexander Susarov on bass, Alexander Enenko on guitar and vocals, Alexey Bochkarev on drums and Nemetz as a manager.
Ind: Melodic death metal. You are in fashion, guys!
MISTWEAVER: No, we just play what we play. And we are destined to be out of fashion.
Ind: You are from Nizhny Novgorod. I asked similar question to CROWNTHORN band. Several years ago your region was famous for many first class metal bands. What's going on now?
MISTWEAVER: Oh, three years ago there were many bands and many gigs. Many great bands loved to come and to play in our city. The things were a-changing. Quite a few bands and rare gigs.
Ind: Zed, you've got no hair! Are you a skinhead? Nazy punks fuck off!!
MISTWEAVER: Many years ago my hair was long. But I got into a decent street fight with punks and lost my hair! I was terribly shocked and was about to start growing hair long again when Nemetz and other band members offered me anewed image. (Ah, Kerry King in miniature! By the way, the other story tells that Zed fell into a fire being beastly drunk. - Edit.) I have nothing in common with skinheads and other damn Nazis. Yet, in Cheboksari I was called a fascist! Shit!
Ind: Let's get back to music. Describe your latest material.
MISTWEAVER: In the long run it is mixed. 5 minutes, 8 songs which also include female opera vocals and tell us about our latest reflections.
Ind: What are you in ordinary life? What are you interests, do you read books, go ion for sports, drink alcohol?
MISTWEAVER: We all work except our drummer, he is a student. Our free time we spend separately. Zed loves repairing cars, of course he hates reading and watching movies. By the way he's got no girlfriend! Bass player is also having another band and he's got a girlfriend. The drummer scrutinizes any info about drug production in home conditions and experiments on it a lot. And vocalist likes visiting conservatoire and has many friends there.
Ind: Is there any life on Mars?
MISTWEAVER: Once our drummer brought us some herb, we tried it and found out that Mars is filled with life, which means you've got to be careful.
Ind: When will MISTWEAVER become an absolute metal star?
MISTWEAVER: Quite soon. Check your time!
Ind: Thank you, brothers for the interview. You are always welcome to come to our city, we can bathe and feed mosquito together!
MISTWEAVER: You must be mad. We are not going to come! It looks like that there's no water in our native city! Imagine, we've got no lakes, rivers and pools. Everything is used for drinking. You can find water only in soda water kiosks, but you'll never get any water because of long queues. I have reserved my place already, my number is 9643824, which means in late 2004 I shall receive a glass of water. Nizhny Novgorod was built on a bog, you see we've got no mosquito at all. To tell the truth our mosquito are as huge as birds. C'mon, of course we shall meet soon!
