So I haven´t yet seen this "interview" here and i thought that I could translate it to you guys. It isn´t a "real" interview in a way ´cos all the guestions are asked by fans, and there is stuff we, devoted fans
, already know. This was released in a magazine called COMO this month. I didn´t find the interview from their site so all you Finns just have settle to my translation, unless you have the paper or someone puts a link here (assuming the interview is on the net).
So with out further to do:
From where does your dressingstyle come? Iris
- We all have quite a strong opinion about in what clothes we feel ourselves natural. It goes from there.
When do you believe that you´re on the peak of your career? Soon? Kaisa

Do you play consol games a lot? Harri
- There isn´t much time for playing but usually on chirstmas holidays we like to play something new and interesting.
Where does the name ”Poets of the Fall” come from? Allu
- The name came after a quite a long thinking. It was ment to consist the words which contain our own musics atmosphere. Briefly, the name is ambiguous. It is both description of the human life: poets of the fall, architects of decay, authors of demise… and so on… and purely poetic poets of the autumn or the rain or the fall.
When are you going to release new music? Mikko
- It´s born all the time. Maybe in the fall we can start recording a new album… maybe not…

- We´ve been in Norway and this year we should visit the rest of the Scandinavia and possibly Russia.

Who/What is your music idol? Pete
- U2, Vai, Pink Floyd, Metallica, Live, Alice in Chains… I just bought Tori Amos´ new album, it´s good too.
Do you have girlfriends? Anselmi
- That´s classified information, dude.
How did you happen to make music to a game, was the song ready already? Janne
- The gamemakers in Remedy are our friends. That way I got to compose the song to the game (MaxPayne 2). The song was custom-built. It has been composed for the game, so it wasn´t ready on the drawer.
Sorry for the possible typos...
