Yesterday we sat down and conducted our first interview of the year with vocalist Tomi Mykannen of Battlelore. This interview was unique for us as it was the first phone interview we've ever conducted(Skype if you're really tech savvy).So what better way to kick off the new year in terms of interviews then with a member of one our favorite bands eh? Tomi was a great sport throughout even in the midst of a dropped call at one point and some eye rolling moments from the both of us. In our defense it was 6 in the morning. But Tomi was awesome and answered every question to the best of his ability.
So without further ado please enjoy our conversation with Tomi of Battlelore as we talk about the band, the new album , and Tolkien. You can also download it to listen to at your leisure.
