The Complete Interview: Hot Chick in Hard Rock Alana Potocnik of Winds of Plague

WindsofPlague2013

When we interviewed Alana Potocnik, keyboardist for Winds of Plague, for our Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock issue (See page 48), we discussed several topics, including the supernatural, ghosts, and magick.

Unfortunately, due to space constraints, we couldn’t include most of the interview. But that’s what the Internet is for! Read what she has to say below!

AlanaPotocnikREVOLVER Do you believe in the supernatural?
ALANA POTOCNIK I absolutely 100% do. Ever since I was a child I had always been fascinated by the supernatural. Living in an old Victorian house that dated over 100 years with a family that has also had some supernatural activity throughout their lives really brought some spooky things to happen over my time there.

Do you believe in the Devil? If so, what form does he, or she, take?
I don’t necessarily believe in the Devil as a person, but I do believe in the devil/demonic life as a way of being completely changed or taken over mentally.

Have you ever seen a ghost or otherwise encountered one?
I could write a book about ghost experiences, but I’ll keep it short and maybe one day you’ll see me as a ghost hunter [laughs]. I had played my luck multiple times with a Ouija board and have talked to many fascinating people but sometimes they are not so nice and look to seek havoc. My roommate and I had once woken up to three scratch marks dripping down her bedroom door along with scratches in sets of threes on her body. Sleeping was a nightmare, sleep paralysis with no escape. Needless to say Sage had become my best friend and tool. I had encountered friendly passerbys at my childhood home after becoming very spiritual when someone very close passed away last year. From visitation of others who had crossed over in dreams to exploring the astral world, I have really opened myself up to be the spiritual person I am today. Call me crazy, but I can usually sense when these things may happen.

Do you believe in heaven and hell? If so, what form do you think they take? And which one do you think you’re going to?
I do not. I believe when we die our spirits can decide what we would like to do.

Have you had any experiences with fortune-telling, divination, curses, or other forms of magick?
I refuse to go to anything like a psychic or use any forms of magick. After entering the hell of a time I had with the past Ouija board experience, I stay far and clear from anything that may bring negative energies to my surroundings.

What’s your astrological sign, and do you think it fits you and your life well?
My astrological sign is Sagittarius. My birthday is November 30 and I accept all forms of birthday gifts [laughs]. I do not know much about the astrological signs so I couldn’t say–but my roommate always tells me, “Alana, of course this happened or of course he’s not good for you, you’re a Sagittarius!”
