Thank YOU so much for this awesomely fun and terrific interview George. It’s been such a delightful opportunity to know about you, and your music. Grave Concerns E-zing (and me, me, me) thank you for being apart of the magazine. We wish you lots of happiness! Many thank-yous again sir. (:
Grave Concerns: Dark and enchanting greetings George, Noid, Dioxin and Harry (with shout outs to the striking ladies, Lady-Lee and Alice; dancers in your band), what a dark and bloody good twisted pleasure it is, to have you gentlemen here at the grave, how are you guys doing?
DV/H: Greetings from Athens, well Inline.seX.Terror general is one man project, me and myself in studio, and all the others that you mention above are session live members, but I will transfer your greetings to them.
GC: Well my friend, you certainly are a busy man---and a talented one too. Cool---thanks!
Grave Concerns: You reside in Athens, Greece---a beautiful country. Please share some of your favorite’s hangouts. And how’s the weather right now?
DV/H: The Weather is like hell! Too hot!! I am looking forward for the winter! The last 1 year I am not going to much out in clubs, only in special events and in gigs, normally I prefer to go some cinema or for dinner with good friends!
GC: I’m not a fan of the too HOT, HOT weather either…movies and dinner out is a lot of fun.
Grave Concerns: Being a member of MySpace, how has it helped, or hindered your musical endeavors? And which countries do you feel have embraced your music the most?
DV/H: MySpace is a very powerful tool for me, because I can spread my music everywhere in the world, meet new interesting people, booking gigs with promoters, and communicate directly with the fans, this is amazing I think, and it helps because you are coming very close with them.
Grave Concerns: So how did you come up with your band’s explosive name?
DV/H: Because I love SEX and because the word “terror” is a feeling that every person has inside him, some can control it others not, and Inline because I think that you must be in the first line of your life, take your life in your hands in other words.
GC: I think you clarified your reasons quite well there---and I must tell you what an incredibly insightful reason for coming up with “Inline”…that’s really a sense of empowerment. Excellent! (:
Grave Concerns: Please tell us about your debut album “11:11”, and which songs are your most proud of?
DV/H: 11:11 Album is a mixing of old school industrial with EBM, Trance, Noise Elements; I think this album represents my life in the last two years. J It’s very difficult for me to choose songs, because I love all the same...
Grave Concerns: Any music videos planned? If so, which song will be the first?
DV/H: Yes we are preparing a video clip for the song My Legacy / My curse, we are in the post production process in this moment.
GC: Cool. Looking forward to seeing it. (:
Grave Concerns: Who comes up with the concepts for your photos, up on your MySpace page? They are sick, my friends…(;
DV/H: Me, my normal-day job is a graphic designer, and I design everything for inline, logo, website, photos, CD layout, posters…I am glad that you are say that is sick because that was the feeling that I have in my mind when I created it.
GC: Wow, That’s awesome! You must get such a great feeling from creatively accomplishing so much. You’re VERY welcome…sick indeed…so cool, that I was feeling that about your style! (:
Grave Concerns: Heartbreak Vampyres---that was for a gothic and industrial party, back in February? I simply fall to my knees at the word, or words associated with vampires…love them…deeply and darkly in my soul. Tell us about that night...ok, in all seriousness…I’d love to know---I need to know. (;
DV/H: It was strange night, this event was in Latvia, one country with very small “dark” scene, it was a small festival with 4 bands, the experience was great, the people very friendly, and liked our show a lot. Well I didn’t see a vampire that night…or I was so drunk, or vampires do not exist.
GC: (: Sounds like a good time was had…hmmm, I’m not giving up that easily on the vampires…I’d say you had too much to drink that night. (;
Grave Concerns: You’ve got a pretty sweet group of dates planned for your tour this summer---tell us about them. You all must be so stoked!
DV/H: Yes we will tour this September/October in Europe to Support our Debut Album 11:11, we have already confirmed gigs in UK, Spain (together with Project Pitchfork, Melotron), Portugal, Greece, Bulgaria, Hungary…
Grave Concerns: So, what are the requirements for someone to be a dancer in your shows?
DV/H: A lot things, but the most important is to love this kind of music, second to know how to dance...to feel the rhythm, and third to have time to travel!
Grave Concerns: The shop “Cryoflesh”, has the fantastic opportunity of dressing you guys, along with accessories, for your shows. How did that come to be? That is pretty special---quite awesome, actually.
DV/H: Yes Cryoflesh has amazing clothes, and we are happy about it!
Grave Concerns: Hey! You’ve done a remix for De/Vision? They’re one of my favorites bands…NICE! How did that get started?
DV/H: Yes I have done one remix for De/Vision’s song “Life is Suffering”, it was for some completion that De/Vision had announced, and because I know the band personally, and also I like De/Vision music, I decide to make the remix!
GC: What a great band to remix---and for you do be able to do that, shows how much respect they have for you as an artist.
Grave Concerns: How do you differentiate a real good song, from a classic? In other words, what really makes a song stand out and last? And with your music, which song or songs do you feel have met that challenge, have come close to it, or are you currently just enjoying the creative bliss?
DV/H: I Don’t know and I can’t tell, always it’s hard for the musician to talk about his songs…I remember Johan van Roy from Suicide Commando, when release the album “Stored Images” has say that the album it was ready and he wanted one more song, so write very quickly one song just to fill the album…and that song was see you in hell, one of the most hits songs in the scene until today.
Grave Concerns: Did you ever forget to dry your hands thoroughly before going into the freezer to get ice cubes?
GC: Ok, I have…many times! (:

DV/H: Food I think, because food, I am not big fan of food!
GC: (: Now I’m hungry!
Grave Concerns: As a musician, how does the music in movies affect you? And if you were asked to compose a song for a soundtrack, which genera would that be in? Now let me take that question even further---actually backward; if you were to go back to the past, with your current music in hand, and were asked that same question, would any of your songs stand out as a good fit? If so, which song and movie would it have been?
DV/H: I love soundtracks from movies!!! Of course I will love to write some score for a movie! It will be for horror movie! I love these kind of movies!…“My legacy / my curse” it will be perfect for Friday the 13th, or for Nightmare on Elm Street, or “Fear No Evil” for Hellraiser movies…
