Mr.Messerschmitt: Sure. It’s a difficult time to manage everything. The life is became hard and this is reflected on our music. For example we have dedicated one song to all doctors and nurses,”The Knights In White”, who fight in the labs and in the wards every day.
MM: Which track is your favorite on "Third Impact" today and why
Mr.Messerschmitt: Every member has the own favorite song, but for me is “Heart of tank”. Because while i sing this song i can immagine to feel the adrenaline and the fear of the soldier who drive that steel monster. It’s not apology of war, but only a description about human sensations during in a extreme situation.
MM: Would you say this is the strongest Gunjack Album so far
Mr.Messerschmitt: Yes. More obscure and heavy. About the sound and the lyrics.
MM: What are your plans for the year tour and festival wise

MM: What is the most memorable gig you have done with Gunjack so far.
Mr.Messerschmitt: There were many awesome shows,in Germany for example, but i remember the release party of “The Cult Of Triblade” album. It was fantastic. Many people in the same club to listen our new music. That night there’s not any guest. Dangerous, and that it was cause of anxiety for us. But it was a great night at the end.

MM: What has been a defining moment so far of your career
Mr.Messerschmitt: When we have decided to play the music we love. Not for trend or what the people wants. When we have created this project different from all others. In this band there’s not a single important member or only one commander. We are all part of Gunjack in the same way.
