HYPNOS: ''Crank up the volume, get your denim and leather, and give your middle finger to the man!''
On the occasion of their last week's performance at Ludwa Chronicles in Vintage Industrial Bar, we talked with members of the band Hypnos from Goteborg, Sweden. They play heavy action boogie rock and although they exist for about one year only, they have a lot of fans.

Welcome to our pages, could you tell our readers something more about the band and the music you create?
Hypnos is a five piece band consisting of Oskar and Fredrik on guitars, Philip on vocals, Anton on the bass guitar and Idun on the drums.We play heavy rock/metal with a classic sound centered around twin guitar leads, high pitched singing and a thundering rhythm section.
Have you ever been to Croatia before?
Oskar: I traveled by train across Croatia a few years ago, Zagreb is a really nice city. As a band it's our first time here, and we're really psyched about it!
Is there any song of yours that you really prefer and why?
Idun: It differs from gig to gig and person to person. Personally I like doing the Hands of Evil.
How is the teamwork in the band? Does inspiration mostly come from one or two of you guys or from each one of you?
A song usually starts by someone bringing a riff or an idea to the rehearsal, and then everyone is involved in the writing process.
What is the main message that you want your listeners to get from your music and lyrics?
Crank up the volume, get your denim and leather, and give your middle finger to the man!
What kind of music you listen when you’re not with other band members?
Idun: I listen to any kind of music, from one drop-reggae to black metal, but right now I like a lot of heavier/extreme metal. I think we have a very broad musical taste in the band, but a short answer is: We all love Thin Lizzy!
Are you satisfied with the position you have in music world and what would you like to achieve as a band?
Of course we are happy with what we've achieved in the one year we've existed, and of course we are not satisfied. Hypnos will play more and louder, and take over the world.
What are your plans for the year ahead of us?
We're gonna keep playing the Hypnos action rock wherever we can, and we are also starting the work with our second album. More tours are also being planned as we speak!
You’re currently on an European tour, is there anything specific you like to see in every town you’ve been playing in lately? Do you like to bring home some souvenirs?
Anton: I like to buy stickers from every city we visit. If there is time, we like checking out the city we are in. Local beers are usually very interesting!
