Susperia – Bassist Memnock
Interviewed by Alan Gilkeson
Just three months ago Susperia were riding high, preparing to release their new album ATTITUDE, and anticipating UK tour dates. Then the unthinkable happened. Their singer Athera (Pål Mathisen) fell victim to a massive heart attack and had to undergo a triple bypass surgery. In Def Leppardesque fashion, Susperia have waited on their mate and are set to tour Europe and play festivals, hoping beyond hope to hit North American shores.
ATTITUDE is a killer Thrash Metal attack with a few guest appearances, including the legendary Chuck Billy from Testament. Further cementing themselves among the elite in the Thrash Metal game, armed with a new label and a new outlook on life, Susperia are in position to win over a mass of new fans. Bassist Memnock recently took a few moments to speak to us via the phone from his Norwegian home.
