💿 Hello, it is a pleasure for us to have on Hardrockheavymetal LEO GATTI from PRELUDIO ANCESTRAL! You are welcome!!
Thank you very much!
💿 Can you tell us something about your first days of your career? When did all this begun? Which bands have influenced you?
It started a few years ago, I was only 11 years old when they gave me my first Creole guitar at 13 years old my parents gave me an electric guitar and at that moment I looked for some friends from the neighborhood and decided to form my first band, at 15 years I was called to be part of a band with which we made many dates, were other times, very nice memories at age 17 I decided to leave and form Prelude, only prelude to make hard rock with time we were mutating to power metal, my influences they were always, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Stratovarius, Gamma Ray among others.
💿 Your new album "OBLIVION" is out !! Can you tell us about its composition? Are you satisfied about this album? Honestly, we are very impressed ...
If very happy with the final result, a great job of all the singers and musicians who worked on it, on the musical compositions are mine and I asked the singers if they wanted to make them the vocal melody and lyrics, I liked it the idea that they can work calmly, without any pressure, have done an incredible job, more than conforming, top-level vocal productions. 💿 OBLIVION is out through FIGHTER RECORDS and SPIRITUAL BEAST. Can you tell us something about the relationships with them?
Once the work was finished I decided to write some stamps, I knew that those who were more interested would answer me and that's the way it was, not just one, but 2, we had to make a contract between the 3 parts, that a stamp would sell only to Asia and the other stamp can move through Europe and North America, haha was quite simple and the 2 parties agreed. 💿 The real "news" in the music industry is the return of vinyl; What's your feeling about this classic format and the current music "business"? I think it's good that way, I know there are many collectors who are with the vinyl, if the market is good, welcome, not everything should be Spotify or YouTube, it is really great (I hope I get mine if it is that some stamp decides to make vinyl) would be fantastic !!!.
💿 In this new album there are several surprising names involved in the metal scene. How hard was it to work with so many different behaviors?
It was a unique experience, many days without sleeping or sleeping bad haha, as they sent me the material at different times and always tried to answer them right away, good attention with everyone, I am very responsible with what I do, all super professionals and very good willingness to work, I know they have been very satisfied with the work done with some of them I am seeing possibilities to do a new job, I think that many doors have been opened, it has been a great experience for me.
💿 Can you tell us something about your upcoming live projects?
I still do not know, I'm evaluating the possibility of touring but you have to gather several factors to be able to bring a good live band, so we're working on it.
💿 We love the cover of your album ... Who did it?
Daniel García and ZaingoDesings has been an excellent job, I was very pleased because Daniel is a super professional and super recommendable.
