Fatal Attraction Interview
Fatal Attraction from Thessaloniki, Greece is a very special case of a band. Starting in the mid 80s they managed to compose and record some really inspired Prog Metal, however their material was never officially released but their name was getting more and more attention among the fans due to their live shows and the quality of their music. The important facts on the band's saga are so many: First of all they worked with two of the most important singers of the Greek Metal scene (Panos Dimitriou and Giannis Koutselinis), they supported Manowar in their Athens show back in 1992 and there are a lot more interesting topics that you would be able to read in this in depth interview that the bassist of the band Vangelis Notopoulos was kind enough to give. Please take some extra time and focus to the answers of Vangelis. You will be able to read some of the most enthusiastic and informative answers you have ever read on an interview! It is THIS type of enthusiasm and THIS plenty of information that I am searching every time I am interviewing a band. Hey bands out there: take the answers of Mr. Notopoulos as an example! Hey readers out there: grab a beer and dive deep into the saga of a marvelous Prog Metal band from Greece!
Forgotten Scroll: Welcome to the Forgotten Scroll interview and thanks very much for accepting the invitation to answer our questions. accepting the invitation to answer our questions.
F.S.: Is there any specific concept behind the band name?
F.S.: Tell us about your musical style. Was it a result of jamming in the studio or it was your initial goal to deliver this special kind of Prog Rock / Metal?
F.S.: As far as I know there was never an official release of the demo. There was not an official front cover or title? Am I right? So can you know identify this recording by giving the exact tracklist?
F.S.: Panos Dimitriou was -and still is- a very active person in the scene back in the early 90es; he used to sing in many bands. How did you come in touch with him and how he ended up singing on your first demo recording?
F.S.: Was it easy to transfer this special atmosphere of your songs on stage?
F.S.: There is a TV appearance of the band back in 1997; can you give more info about this?
V.N.: It was our “swan song” appearance. It was the last time we’d played together as “Fatal Attraction” and we didn’t know that yet. Sad! It was on Jamming TV show, we’ve played two new, unnamed instrumental tracks and two covers (Don’t Chain My Heart from Toto and Bad Company from Bad Company) with Vasilis Papadopoulos on vocals.
F.S.: How long did the band last and when did you split? Which was the main reason of your split?
