                                                                         MoGa interview 11/03/24

This interview has been taken with Hristo Lazarov, MoGa’s rhythm guitarist
MM: Can you tell us about your Band and whos your biggest influences
We are MoGa, an experimental death metal band. Our sound incorporates a lot of different
elements from different subgenres, starting with technical death metal and going all the way to
ballads. We have brutal riffs, blast beats, harsh and clean vocals, acoustic guitar parts,
relaxing clean songs, electronic music in the background… you name it.

MM: Where do you draw your inspirations and ideas from
The band’s main composer and sound architect is Anton Dimitrov (TonyFlo). He has drawn
inspiration from various sources but most notably from real-life situations, nature, human
interactions. The music lives in him and makes an integral part of his existence, so he is able
to pen kick-ass riffs literally anytime, anywhere.


MM: What would you say is your Bands favourite song ?
This is a hard question. All of them are our favourites. I am not saying this to dodge the
question, if there were a song, which was not our favourite, it wouldn’t have made it to the
album. However, I can tell you which song I most enjoy playing live. That would be “Garden”
(check it out:, because it has
everything: Hardcore riffs, interesting chords, heavy distortion and also clean parts and the
solo which Tony plays is just mind-blowing.


MM: Plans tour and festival wise for 2024
We are looking forward to playing a few shows throughout the year, so stay tuned ��


MM: What can we expect from MoGa live?
6 musicians giving their best to perform our songs the way they are intended to sound.
Prepare for a feast for your ears including extreme drumming, downtuned 8-string guitars and
a great vocal performance from Milko (harsh) and Borislava (clean).

MM: What do you like best and worst abt touring
Best: New audiences, new experiences, new stages and many unforgettable moments.

Worst: Constantly packing, unpacking, moving and waiting.


MM: Which three Bands would be your ultimate touring buddies
Any band (or three bands for that matter) who we find common ground with. We are ready to
collaborate with anyone, provided the relationship is professional and based on mutual


MM: Whats the most memorable concert youve been to (other than your own) and why 
I have been to hundreds of concerts as a fan, so I can’t tell. I have fantastic memories of my
guitar heroes personally handing me their guitar picks or just watching in awe as some world-
class bands perform. Or waiting 10+ hours at the entrance to be in the first line. Each concert
has been awesome on its own, I don’t think I can name one single favourite.


MM: What do you feel has been your biggest accomplishment so far?
Playing with MoGa, simple as that. I am honoured to have been chosen as a guitarist in this
band. Sharing the stage with these wonderful musicians is a dream come true for me.


MM: Which are your Two favourite Albums of all time?
Oh, come on. Only two? Of all time? Forget it ��
But ok, here it goes: The Pain Remains by Lorna Shore and Khaos Legions by Arch Enemy.
That could change over time, however, because there are so many bands creating so much
beautiful music.
And of course: “Where Do You Come From” by MoGa - our debut album :)


MM: Can you remember the first time you ever played live and how it felt to have people
watching you?
I think I do, it was in Kindergarten when I was 5 :D :D. I was playing the piano back then. I
have a vague memory of the experience, I was kinda anxious, but also thrilled I was doing it. It
was a good feeling. After all those years, I still experience something similar when I go on real
stages now. I like how it feels and it helps me stay focused.


MM: Growing up which Bands posters did you have on your bedroom wall.
I didn’t hang the posters on the wall, I was afraid they would get damaged *laughing*. Just like
a lot of other metalheads, I started out with Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth and gradually
progressed to harder stuff. I still like these three bands very much and have the deepest
respect for them.


MM - Who do you think influenced the world of Metal / Rock more than any other person
I can’t tell. There are so many people and bands who have defined the genre. Ozzy? Dio?
Maiden? Priest? Pantera? That’s an endless discussion. As far as the heavier stuff goes,
maybe Death/Obituary/Morbid Angel. Come on, each and every band, from the world-class
names to the newcomers, has had an impact on the scene.


MM - Whats the most important thing to the band right now?
Focussing on what we do - playing music. We also have something cooking for a second
album, but everything will come in time.


MM:If you could do a cover of any song which one would it be and why?
We don’t do covers. We are playing our original music only. While some band members are
sometimes doing covers in their free time, as a band we focus on our own music.


MM: Tell us why we should buy and listen to your Band
Because our music has never served any other purpose but to show our musical face to the
world. We have not strived to replicate any other band’s sound, this is us. Give us a listen and
youll see what I mean.

MM: Four words to describe MoGa
Kick-ass experimental death metal.
