Rotting Christ frontman Sakis Tolis spoke in an interview with Impact and revealed what he feels when he listening to his own music.
Here’s the statement:
“I don’t listen to my own music. Of course, I listen sometimes, but usually I don’t because I feel like I did that [already]. For instance, for the new album, I was working on it for more than a year. I listened to the songs more than one thousand times. As long as they are done, I’m okay.
You must find yourself every night [when performing live]. I must find myself. I have to have a kind of meditation of where I am, why am I here? It’s not that easy to do that, to pick up your mind and go straight to the stage. I’m the person that is responsible, so when someone pays for a ticket, I would like to do my best.”
He also talked about his artistic evolution and said:
“I think as a person, I’m quite a creative person. I always wanted to have step-ups in my life and creativity. I have the same friends, I have the same social life. When I step out to talk about art, it’s like I would like to take a step-up. I try, at least to not be stable.
I would like to provide new [sounds], expand and experiment a lot with my music and sometimes people accept it, sometimes not. We’re always here and we’re trying to open some new doors in the metal [scene].”
Rotting Christ’s latest album “Rituals” was released in 2016. Their new album “The Heretics” will be released in February 2019.
