Metal Shock Finland‘s Tarja Virmakari had a chance to interview Mike and ask him about his first days and weeks in ENGEL, as well as about upcoming album of DEGRADEAD. But among many other things, Tarja found out also what is Mike’s method to learn quickly by heart new songs … to know this and more, just listen to the interview below.
