SUSPERIA vocalist, Athera (Pål Mathiesen), is set to make his return to the stage at this year’s Steinkjer Festival in Norway following his heart attack recovery. Athera suffered a heart attack back in March and underwent successful open heart surgery.
Athera recently gave his first interview since the heart attack to Belgium’s Metal Nose. Talking about his new perspective on life he said, “I haven’t seen the light or anything but things are certainly different. I would never ever dare to touch any kind of drugs anymore and I don’t understand now how people can pull smoke into their lungs and stuff like that, even though I used to love it. I guess you must go through something like this to realize the dangers and insanity of some of the bad things in life.” Check out the full interview here: http://www.metal-nose.org/news.php?item.575.16.
The Steinkjer Festival takes place Friday, June 26. More info here: http://www.steinkjerfestivalen.no/
