Show me an honest politician, and I’ll show you a clown that screams. Okay, screw politics, just bring on the screaming clown from Göteborg.

Avatar is a band rapidly gaining a following all over the world for the music and presence on stage. The band lineup is Johannes Michael Gustaf Eckerström (vocals), John Alfredsson (drums), Kungen (guitars), Tim Öhrström (guitars), and Henrik Sandelin (bass). We got a chance to talk with Johannes after returning from one heck of a boat ride. We hit on a few topics like their music, alligators, and even his iconic stage persona. Grab your sunscreen and let us walk a little on the strange side of metal.

Interview with Johannes Michael Gustaf Eckerström of Avatar:
