💿 Hi, it's a pleasure for us to have on Hardrockheavymetal MANU SAVU of CROSSING ETERNITY!! Hi guys, thanks for the invitation! We are honored that you have thought about us! 💿 Your new album "THE RISING WORLD" is available from a few days..Can you tell us somethin’about its composition’s process and style? Are you satisfied about this platter?
We have the privilege to listening to it and we were very impressed!!
First of all I thank for the kind words! Regarding music, for me the composition is a very natural process! It helps me a lot in this processand the fact that I also orchestrate the songs and then record/mix it, so I can pursue direct and honestly the original idea until the complete finalization of the song.
The composition itself is often based on thoughts, emotions, experiences that I try to find a musical correspondent until I find that sweet musical spot that makes me recognize in music the emotion from which I started.
My musical background is quite dense and varied after 30+ years of music as a professional guitar player and composer, and this gives me theopportunity to experiment and break some stylistic barriers characteristic of heavy metal, but without departing from the real spirit of this style of music that I love.
And last but not least I feel privileged because my band mates have the necessary experience an talent to enter into my music and to inspire her through their interpretation and abandon.
💿 You're experienced musicians. Can you tell us somethin’about your early days and which bands have influenced you?
I was born in a communist country at that time, I made my debut as a professional guitarist on the big stages of the country still undercommunism, but in spite of this horror, we were playing at 2000-4000 sits, in front of an amazing audience, over 150 days a year.
It was an absolutely crazy, crazy times, with incredible touring stories and with a audiences with a hunger for music and emotional unleashing - detached like from the hysteria of the Beatles concerts of the 60s.
As for the bands that have influenced me in early days ... my God .. there aremany, but I will mention Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Michael Schenker, Ozzy with Randy Rhoads, Iron Maiden, Dio ... 💿 The real "news" in music is the return of vinyl. What's your feeling about this classic format and the current music "business"?
Mmm, vinyl ... I love Vinyl! and not just a kind of nostalgia, but I really love that warm and organic sound.
All the guys from the band are really fanatics with this classic format; it's my first choice when I want to listen to music or buy a new album. Regarding music business ... it is clear that we are heading in a new direction, that it will not be what it was in the years of decadence, but I am convinced that the love for the music - that is in our original DNA, will guide us to new models of business, and those who really love to play and have talent will still be on stage, and those who really love listening music will also be in concert halls and will buy music in one form or another.
For me to go on stage after all those years is still a privilege and I firmly believe that in the world we live now this is our least problem...
💿 Your new album will be out via ROCKSHOTS RECORDS. Can you tell us somethin’about about
relations with them.
When Rockshots made me the proposal to work together, it was like an invitation to join the Rockshots family and so far we felt like in afamily ... It's an ambitious Record Label with an amazing A&R and inventive PR, with a modern dynamics and view and who knows what he wants and how to get it!
💿 Can you tell us somethin’about your next live projects? We begin the promotion live series of "The Rising World" album with an opening act for Kamelot in 16th August and from October or November.
We plan to start the European Tour also with a well-known band.
When we have all the details, we will also announce on our Facebook and website the concert dates and the band with which we will make this European Tour!
💿 Thank you so much for your time! See you soon on Hardrockheavymetal! Thank you so much Hardrockheavymetal to have us! Keep the metal alive! (Thanks AsherMediaRelations)
