this time we have an really cool
interview with TORBEN HANSEN or
better known as METAL of BONZAI.


please tell me your real name?
- my name is TORBEN HANSEN.

and your age is?
- i've just turned 18.

what's your job in BONZAI?
- i'm a full-time MUSICAN.

in how many groups have you been
in, and what's their name?
- well, i started out in a small
group called ZONE 7. after some
time, we 'cleaned' up the crew
and changed the name into DEAD-
LINE. then we all splitted up
and i joined THE ATOMIC FREAKS,
but not for long 'cause all
members(2) joined a group called
U2. again i wasn't present in a
group for long, 'cause i got the
offer to join WWE. i stayed
there some 3 months or so until
some days later i got the offer
to join ABNORMAL, and so i did.
i stayed in ABNORMAL all the way
until the group died. i was then
groupless for about 2 weeks or
so, when me and DRAX came up
with the idea to built up a cool
music company. and then UNITECH
DESIGNS was born. but not for
long, coz DRAX got tempted by
AMOK, and so he joined. then i
asked CONTEX if i could join,
and they accepted. i don't know
why they ever hired me, 'cause
they never used any of my tunes.
ofcoz i couldn't accept to be in
a crew who had such incompetent
leaders who wasn't interested in
using the skills of their own
group. well, enough about them.
2-3 days after i left CONTEX i
recieved a phonecall from SONNY,
and he asked me to join and so i
did. overall i've been in about
NINE groups.

how did you got the interest in
making music?

got the SOUNDMONITOR. and that
was in 1987, i guess.

monitor in 1987.

are you self learned or did you
got help from someone?
- i got some help with the
instruments in SOUNDMONITOR. but
i learned to make music myself.

if you'll RANK YOURSELF on the
music charts, on what place
would that be?
- nahh, that would be selfish to
do, but somewhere between 1 and
10 wouldn't be bad at all....
