:: INTERVIEW TO DARK SKY

PRESENT YOURSELVES OUR READERS...

"Im Frank the singer of the band and still the last surviver from the beginning of the DARK SKY band."

WHO ARE DARK SKY AS BAND MEMBERS?
"Additional to me there are Steffen the guitarist, Uwe the drumer, Claudio our keyboarder and on the bass guitar Winny."

WHEN DID YOU HAVE FOUNDED THE BAND?
"Well, the band was founded in the early 80s as a schoolband and during all the years there was a constant changing in the band line up."

WOULD YOU LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THE VERY FIRST BEGINNING OF BAND...
"We were rehearsing twice a week in the cellar of our drumers home. It was pretty hard to play with the whole band with full sound because upstairs our drumers parents didnt like to be disturbed too much. Our live activities were limited to school partys and local music club events. But soon DARK SKY received the status of a hopefull newcomer rock band in the region."

WHAT'S ABOUT YOUR PREVIOUS RECORDING-EFFORTS?
"In 1986 we recorded our first album but before the album could be released the record company became bankrupt and all our dreams had been bursting. Even in 1998 after several demo tapes we signed a deal with a malaysian record company to release the album "Believe it" in Asia. Later in 2000 together with germans record company Goodlife the album was also released in Europe and became available almost all over the world. With the second strike "Edge of Time" in 2002 we moved another step forward and good reviews for the album attained us certainty that we are on the right way."

WHAT'S ABOUT YOUR FOLLOWING?
" Now were in 2005 and the new album "Living & Dying" is going to be released this month. Hopefully people will like the new songs and probably the album will mark another step forward for the band. Whats next? The future will show."

THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTS IN YOUR HISTORY?

"Of course the good fellowship in the band during the last years. This gave us the power to improve the constant progress of the band. Another important point were the deals with the record companies in Asia and Europe we signed in recent years."

COULD YOU INTRODUCE US YOUR ALBUM 'LIVING & DYING'?
""Living & Dying" became a very emmotional album. Even behind the lyrics there are real stories and this fact is an important part of the songs. Therefor the meaning of living and dying" is a kind of thema for the whole album. There are happy, sad and also hopefull stories used for the lyrics. Recording the drums, keyboards, guitars and bass (my band mates) the boys made a pretty good job transfering the feeling of these stories to the music."

WHY DID YOU GET SIGNED BY AOR HEAVEN?
"After the "Edge of Time" album we recorded a five track demo tape in 2004 and offered it to various record companies because our deal with Goodlife ran out. Fortunately we recieved several offers and we had to find out which might be the best package for the band. Finaly we signed the deal with AORHeaven and hopefully it was the right decission."

WHAT'S ABOUT THE PRODUCTION OF ALBUM?
"Again we recorded the album at the Bazement Studio with producer Markus Teske. And again it was a pleasure and even hard work too. We spent almost five weeks to record all the stuff and two further weeks to fix the mix. Keyboarder Claudio improved his abilities in cooking and guitarist Steffen was still the master of serving beers and drinks for the band."

ANY PARTICULAR CONCEPT CONCERNING THE ALBUM?
"Its not really a concept album but if you have an eye on the lyrics you might find out that the stories are all about the grand thema LIVING & DYING, loving and crying. This might be a kind of concept."

WHAT'S THE MOOD OF IT?
"It depends on the song. For example the song "Living and Dying" shows the depressive side of soul and the song "See the light" should impress the hope which could be refreshed every morning again."

THE MUSIC IS VERY AOR/HARD ROCK ORIENTED?
"Well this is where we have our musical roots. Were only able to write songs which we like to hear for ourselves. We grew up with bands like JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN, UFO, SCORPIONS and probably their sound left its mark on our music taste."

THE MOST SALIENT ASPECTS OF YOUR NEW ALBUM?
"For new songs were also trying to create catchy hooks with a great choir in the chorus."

WHAT'S ABOUT THE FEEDBACK?
"Most of the reviews are very good and people who have already listened to the songs are impressed but we know that its still impossible to catch all music taste. So there will be also people who dont like it."

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR SOUND?
"I dont think that we like to communicate something special with our sound. But playing music and writing songs and lyrics is one way to assimilate our experiences."

TOURING PLANS?
"Wed like to support another band touring across Europe but its not so easy. Its a question of money and connections. First of all were gonna play some shows in the south of Germany and than were gonna see whats up."

YOUR LIFE'S PHILOSOPHY?
"Treat people the same way youd like to be treatened."

THE FUTURE OF THE BAND?

"It depends on the success of the album and the concerts during the next months. We try to reach as many people as possible to give them the chance to listen to our sound."

ANY LAST REMARKS?
"I hope you and all your readers enjoy the new DARK SKY album. It would be great to meet you sometime on tour in your country. Thanx :-)"
