'Enjoy Christmas With Your Loved Ones. Family is Important' - Mnemic's Mircea Eftemie looks back at 2011.

Mircea's here with some damning comment on the state of awards shows in Denmark. He obviously hasn't heard of the Arias...

Good day to you Sir. We've a lot to get through so let's cut to the chase. What's the best album you bought this year, and who recorded it?
Decapitated's Carnival Is Forever.

How about the best album you’ve heard this year but never got round to buying?
I already bought it, see above.

I see. And the worst Album you bought this year?
Nickelback - Here and Now. (Hats off to the man for admitting that!- Ed.)

That must have been traumatic. On to happier topics, I think -  Best Band you saw live in 2011?
Suffocation at the Aalborg Metal Festival 2011

And the most exciting event of the year?

Aalborg Metal Festival.

What was the most yawn-inducing event of 2011, any thoughts?
All Danish award shows, Music, DJ, etc etc.

We here in Australia feel your pain! On a happier, more liquid note, What will you be drinking at Midnight on December 31 to see in 2012?
Anything strong enough to make me forever erase 2011 from my mind.

And who is your tip to break out of the underground and into the general consciousness in 2012?
My own new project. 

The penultimate question: What does 2012 hold in store for you?
I just try to take one day at the time, but a new Mnemic album, touring and hopefully a great summer.

And finally, Mircea, what is your Christmas message to the readers of Metal as Fuck?
Enjoy Christmas with your loved ones, family is important.
