In addition, vocalist is featured in a new interview with Shosen-Ningen. An excerpt is available below:
Q: You said in another interview that you get asked a lot to re-record old Blood Stain Child songs. Which one is your personal favourite and which one would you find most challenging to interpret with your voice?
Sophia: "I generally don’t like to touch old material, out of respect for the band’s history and the fans who love those songs. But since a lot of voices keep asking for new versions and we perform them live anyway, I’d like to re-record 'Metropolis'. It’s a truly beautiful song."
Q: In the past, Blood Stain Child has worked with several international artists such as Anssi Kippo or Tue Madsen, for example. You yourself are Greek, do you think that this internationality influences and maybe broadens the bands’ musical horizon?
Sophia: "Yes, the band always aimed towards a more international audience, but the fact that they were unable to communicate sufficiently with the outside, kept them away from what they wanted, I think. I have a completely different mentality and background though, so all this changed as soon as I joined. I’d feel too restricted if we were active only in Japan."
