Interview about No Man Eyes, an Italian heavy metal band.
Hello Andrew, how have you been?
Hi Carla, hi everybody! I’m fine.
When was No Man Eyes formed?
Well, No Man Eyes was formed in 2011 after the split of my previous band (Graveyard Ghost), things were not working well and refreshing the lineup was the best thing to do. We decided to change our monicker because almost all band components changed (being myself and drummer Michele Pintus the ones left); after almost one year of struggling to find a final lineup we welcomed Alessandro Asborno at the bass and underground veteran Fabio Carmotti as vocalist. We have been united and strong since then.
You have released the debut album in 2013 under the name of “Hollow Man”. What can you tell me about it?
The majority of Hollow Man songs had been written by me during the last Graveyard Ghost years, therefore they were carried over into No Man Eyes. The new bandmembers liked the songs and we started recording immediately, however I cannot say there is a real contribution by the other guys (except Michele), so even if I consider all songs good and enjoyable (and with a strong message on themes I like – e.g. individualism, our role in the world, the meaning of existence…), I feel there is something missing.
