Quotes related to 'Happiness?' album

About the album

I hope that it's a good title. I think that it's in harmony with the simple truths that I've tried to find. I really wanted to write a very personal album. For me, "Happiness?" is the best work I've done individually. It is fundamentally a very individual work and each piece has it's own identity. I think that the result would have been very different if I had worked in a group.

I've effectively played a bit of guitar on the album, but mainly rhythm, because Jason, my main guitarist is literally amazing and brilliant. Also, I have let him evolve in his way on the record. He has an excellent touch. My principal objective was to concentrate to the maximum on my voice, because it is, in my opinion the best means I have to give out to the best the feeling of my compositions.

About 'Nazis 1994'

I believe that it is a real problem that must be put in light, especially for the young. It is one of the main dangers that exist in today's society and particularly in Europe of all places. I wanted to write something simple and direct which gives the main idea, one which repeats throughout the whole song. In my opinion the repetition fixes firmly the idea in people's heads. This sentence that continually comes back is "They say that it never happened". To think that of the holocaust is purely and simply outrageous. How can they be stupid enough to think that? The general atmosphere of "Nazis" is cold and without feeling. That's at least what I wanted to create. The only emotions that we can set against these people are the strongest emotions. That's all there is which can stand against them.
