Former STRATOVARIUS Drummer JÖRG MICHAEL Discusses DEVIL'S TRAIN In New Video Interview

RockNLive.org recently conducted an interview with DEVIL'S TRAIN/ex-STRATOVARIUS drummer Jörg Michael. You can now watch the chat below.

In addition to Michael, DEVIL'S TRAIN features MYSTIC PROPHECY mainman/producer Roberto Dimitri Liapakis Liapakis, guitarist Lakis Ragazas, and ex-SYMFONIA/STRATOVARIUS bassist Jari Kainulainen.

DEVIL'S TRAIN's self-titled debut album was released on February 17 via earMUSIC/Edel. The CD was recorded at Prophecy and Music Factory studios with the production team of Liapakis and Christian Schmid.

DEVIL'S TRAIN is a project Liapakis had been working on with Greek guitarist Lakis Ragazas for a year and as soon as Michael heard it, he asked to become part of it as the group's drummer.

Commented Liapakis: "I am rock and roll down to my veins and I always had diverse influences in my music, a great part of which are expressed in the music I write with MYSTIC PROPHECY. However, the style of music I have been preparing for DEVIL'S TRAIN with Lakis Ragazas isn't the style that would fit MYSTIC PROPHECY and this is why I decided to initiate a side band. Luckily, other people with whom I have common musical background share my vice for rock 'n' roll and Jörg, as I found out when we toured together [in] January [2010], is one of them."
