Sarcamon: The lyrical topics are personal and progressed in my very own style in the last 20 years.

11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
My interest in Metal began in 1988 and through all the years I was inspired by so many different bands and styles of music, it's infinite. Nowadays I'm musically more open than in the past.
In the past I was influenced by Black Metal from the nineties. Today I listen to many styles of music, from Metal to Indie Rock to Dark Ambient.
