Best Monster moment?
Eneko: Resurrection Fest 2011, an unforgettable experience!
Garci: Resurrection Fest.
Igor: During the recording of our new album in Madrid, the last day, when only missing a few sentences to finish the album at full strength failed me. The extreme heat in July, the accumulation of fatigue after four days in a row with the voices, etc ... could me, dizziness, headache and unable to keep shouting. I drank two cans of Monster ½ (half liter) and not just finished recording the album as an animal, but I came back to the ground running! Resurrected.

Eneko: A camera and ... shampoo!

Strengths and weaknesses?
Eneko: A virtue: I quite my ball. One flaw: I quite my ball.
Garci: Worker. Perhaps too perfectionist and stubborn.
Igor: I give the best in everything I do, I am very passionate. A defect, I like to sleep too, the bed I can ...
Mark: When I do something out of me, I like to polish it to the best of my ability without letting half. I`m a bit clumsy and clueless in my daily life.
Marta: My strength is that I`m working and I do not like doing things by halves. My biggest flaws is that I have too much bad blood and I`m really clueless.
What or who motivates you/Who inspires you?
Eneko: When I started in music inspired people like Jordan Pundik of New Found Glory, now motivates me all the people who follow us and give your support.
Garci: All the people working on what he likes, he enjoys it and that strives for everything he does has the highest possible quality. Entrepreneurs. Especially people in the art world.
Igor: I think the inspiration is within ourselves, but we must find, analyze your personality and your way of being and acting in certain moments of life ... I personally motivates and inspires me violence and injustices I see around me, gives me strength to shout over the disgust I feel like the world gives. Also people of good heart to give me strength and courage and serenity of course, my adventures in Mexico surrounded by his ancestral cultures.
Marcos: The people I live my daily life and constant learning that is life.
Marta: I encourage all those people who like what you do every day and you show your support. It`s a huge motivation to see how you do not just like you. I am inspired by everything that goes through my ears, I see, read, people around you ... Everything contributes and anything you can get inspiration.
What is the most crazy thing you`ve done?
Eneko: I`ve done several, but one that I remember well is back from Prague with a colleague, with 3 euros in my pocket until we could eat!
Garci: A couple of years ago I did drive 1,000 km in one day to buy a second hand amp at a great price. Within 5 minutes of arriving home my car died for good.
Igor: I guess going to spend the afternoon just to Tepito, one of the most dangerous neighborhoods of Mexico City. Getting lost in its narrow streets, buying stolen goods (CDs, DVDs) in its famous market and see kids 10, 12 years playing kick the can in a field, with real-caliber weapons. Best of all is that these weapons are sold in the same market for very little money, as anyone who sells mp3!
Marcos: Stop eating out or what I like to save to buy the best dish (plate battery, Cymbal) or complement to my battery.
Marta: I`m not a person who does a lot of crazy. Perhaps the craziest thing I have done is buy a keyboard on the 1st of the month with the money I entered and stay for the rest of the month with just 50 euros for a living. I was eating pasta and rice almost an entire month.
