Johannes Eckerström of Avatar (Video Interview)


“The essence of what we do is that it is theatrical as opposed to theatre…”

From Release: It has taken well over a decade, 9 albums, multiple fan petitions and even a support group for Australian fans upset at not having a tour, to finally get one of the greatest live bands in the history of heavy music to Australia. Renowned for legendary performances, ludicrous levels of skill as musicians and a seemingly endless catalog of killer songs, AVATAR are finally making their way to Australia.

We chatted with Johannes about the bands upcoming debut Australian tour, set lists, new music, evolution, and much, much more.

Check out the full interview below:
