Grita Magazine: Do you have a message for your Mexican fans?
Zacky V: It’s Amazing, we have read all the comments and we know how much they wanted us to play in Mexico and is a pleasure for us do it for all of you. Last time we came with Metallica and now is our chance to make it by our own.

Grita Magazine: How do you feel before coming here to Mexico?
Zacky V: The last time that we were in Mexico we opened the show for Metallica. So we return to this country and play our own show, a bigger set, with new songs, It’s Amazing. It was the invitation that we were expecting.

Grita Magazine: Opening shows from bands as big and important as Iron Maiden or Metallica is very hard. How do you take those experiences?
Zacky V: Definetly. It’s always hard when you open for a band as Metallica and Iron Maiden because the fans want to see that bands that have worked a lot, that got a lot of respect over the years, and also we respect them a lot. So I know how people answer and I aprecciate It, even if the answer from the crowd is not good for us. They are bands that have made amazing music, they do what the believe and they have taught us that you have to work hard and have patience to do that, because many bands can come and go, it’s dificult to get a great album. We know that so in that situations we go out on the stage with our heads held high, trying to make our work, giving the best show. If you keep in a good level, you will make it in your entire career but I think that opening to bands as big as them, gives you a lot. Now that we return to Mexico, they will see us with more respect.

Grita Magazine: What do you guys have prepared for this shows?
Zacky V: We have made the best show that we can, to take the NIGHTMARE TOUR around the entire world. We will try to do it better, we are rehearsing and Mexican fans will be the first ones to enjoy it, a great production. We know that more crazy fans are waiting for us, it’s amazing. They will be the first ones to listen songs live that they have not listened before.

Grita Magazine: How do you get ready before going out on stage?
Zacky V : Usually I try to get relaxed, not getting to away from the venue, if I have the chance I meet some fans before the show but playing live is something really serious for me. In every city I visit I try to give the best show and get focused on the show totally.

Grita Magazine: Who is the new drummer that is touring with you?
Zacky V: Arin Ilejay. He is a 23 year old drummer, he is incredible. We decided to give him a chance but the most important thing are they abilities as a drummer and we thought that it is great opportunity.

Grita Magazine: Do you have a message for your Mexican fans?
Zacky V: It’s Amazing, we have read all the comments and we know how much they wanted us to play in Mexico and is a pleasure for us do it for all of you. Last time we came with Metallica and now is our chance to make it by our own.
