At last, with this release we are getting closer to the sound that we want to produce. Blending classical instruments with metal in a most powerful way possible and on a same time keeping classical music in the focus of the composition.

Band Name:

Genady Talis – Violin

Person Interviewing: Shai Peker from SPYBORG

Song name: Winterlust

Music Genre:: Industrial Metal, Classical, Instrumental

This song is a part of the album, we are in process of recording, called “Vier Rammzeiten”. It is a homage to German band “Rammstein” and Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi.

We took different Rammstein compositions as a reference for our inspiration and combined them with parts of Four Seasons by Vivaldi. This particular track is about our attitude towards “modern” classical music which, in some cases, lacks harmony and melody and became just a pile of sounds. We call it Heavy Metal Chamber Music combine with rock and classical music. I think it’s an interesting mix.

We have our own studio in Tel Aviv, where we recorded our last tracks. Having our own place allowed us to spend so much more time in a preparation and a in a search for a special sound. Our sound engineer is a wonderful musician Barak Paryente, who definitely is an essential part in creating the sound that we wanted. Our tracks are mastered by Dan Swano, from Sweden, who is very well known in a European metal scene.

We are all professional musicians working in classical orchestras so it’s not always easy to find free time for rehearsals.

It is not always easy to leave your family on a weekend and spend time practicing in a studio. We really have great spouses, who help us in any way possible.

Best Advise…
The only advice I can think of is: Practice, Practice, Practice. No shortcuts… In what we do, practice makes perfect. You just can’t define your skills without continual refinement of the skills.

Social media..
This has been a hurdle. We know that it takes time and the right strategy. Our plan this year is to become more consistent with purposeful social media marketing. Primarily on Youtube.

I live in…
We live in Tel Aviv so our music scene is quite different from Europe or the United States. There are many different styles of music being produced here from Mediterranean to electronic.
