Hello dear Suncrown band, nice having you for an interview. Now with only a little delay here’s my questions for you.
1. Please introduce your band Suncrown to my readers first.
Oleg: We are a symphonic metal band and our musicians are from different countries. There are so many good people in this world and we enjoy writing songs that speak about these people and the values they bring to life. We are fortunate to have members that represent this from around the world.
2. Which of your band members suggested to name the band „Suncrown“?
Oleg: I was thinking about some good and light name for a band a few years before we began working like group.
3.In October 2011 you released a video tribute to Ronnie James Dio and you covered Black Sabbaths HEAVEN AND HELL.
Also Vinny Appice did the drums for this video. How did you run into Vinny how did you meet him?
Oleg: We had a friend who knew a studio owner in Las Vegas that had done a lot of recordings with him. So he called him and lined it up.
Vinny is a very nice, humble man. Very real and easy to work with. It was a great honor for us having him play.
4. Oleg: You did some more videos until you released your first album in November 2013. So your latest album is called Follow Your Dream. You also added new members to the group. What about the fans reactions on the album?
Oleg: We got many reviews of our album and many positive words from fans about the first album. During this album was forming our line up and style.
5. As you are from different countries it makes it a little hard to go out play shows.. is it planned to go on tour or is it a so to say internet-metalband-project only.. what are you thoughts, Oleg?
Oleg: Yes, of course we are planning and we will do this. It is hard for us, because we need to have many visas and spend more money for trip. We have invites on few gigs, and I think we will follow them this or next year.
6. What is the next goal you like to reach with your band?
Oleg: Now we are recording our second album “You Are Not Alone”. After this we will work to play shows
7. How long did it take to do all the recordings and preparations for the album?
Oleg: On first album we spent nearly a year on composing, recording and release of the album.
8. Please give us a little insight into the Ukraine’s metal scene.
Oleg: We have many extreme metal bands. Here black/folk/atmospheric/death metal is popular.
One of the famous black/folk metal bands are Nokturnal Mortum, Drudkh, Balfor, Zgard.
We have a good pagan metal scene: Natural Spirit, Chur, Kroda, Viter. There are symphonic metal bands which are good in my opinion: Morton and Conquest. Also veterans of doom metal Apostate and new perspective band Nonsun.
9.The floor is yours leave a message for all my readers and your fans from all around the globe.
Oleg: We are very thankful to all people working with us and listening to our music and supporting us.
Thank you so much for the interview, Oleg. I wish you and your band all the best for the future and lots more albums to come. All best, Susi
