Please introduce yourself to the readers.
My name is Matthau Mikojan and I sing, play the guitar and write songs
in a band called Bloodpit.
How would you describe your style of music?
Heavy rock n´ roll...hooks... melodies and adrenaline. Someone has
called our music 'Dark rock' aswell.
What musical influences did you have?

I listen to this and that and I guess everything affects me one way or
Is there any band you might compare your band with?
I can´t come up with only one because we´ve been compared to tons of
bands from Soundgarden to WASP.

Do you have a straight order in your band?
Lyrics are the only thing that no one else has a chance to partake...
but otherwise we do everything together including the songwriting.
How did you start doing music?
It just happened. I was a little past ten when I wrote my first
songs...something like FUCK THE WORLD and other fuck-related titles ;o)
Do you remember your first concert you played? And in which way did
the band change since that time?
We played our first gig in 1999. I guess we were terrible... but somehow
we got better over the years and managed to build a following. Eight
years ago it was Paavo and me learning to be rockstars.
What aims do you want to achieve?
First we gotta sell gold.
Is there any place you dream of having a gig one day?
Not really... only the number of people counts.

I Remember. Simply because it´s so emotional and personal.
