DIMICANDUM (for Queens of Steel)

1. Hello, thanks for answering to our questions. What are you guys currently up to?
Hi! Right now, after the album release, we’re preparing presentation-gigs in our country and beyond. In near future we’ll release a debut video, which was shooted live in Lviv, on stage of “Palace of Sports”. All in all, we’re trying to carry forward our art into the people’s mind and souls, and, I think, we’re doing it pretty well =).

2. First off, could you make some history of the band?
I think, there’s no sense retelling the whole story from the very beginning, who’s very curious – can always read this story on our website. All I can say is that the idea was born in 2009 and after a year, in 2010, the band was fully formed and ready for action with our own conception and sound. Current lineup is stable for over an year and we feel ourselves as strong as never!

3. How could you describe your sound?
The sound of our band is inspired by Atmospheric Metal, which combines the best elements from different Metal music styles, beginning with heavy/thrash and ending with death/gothic metal. Low tuned guitar sound, but readable at the same time, atmospheric keyboards and a clear, melodious rhythm of the drums. The sound of the album is unique, our own “Dimicandum-like” I’d say, generated by experienced hand of our sound-producer Oleksiy “Shaddar” Romanchenko from “Black Light Studio” and we are very grateful him for that.

4. What are the band’s main musical influences?
In our case, there’s no specific source of sway to our music, because every member of our band has they own, different, musical tastes, from black\death to folk\rock. This is the main reason, by the way, for absence of style limits (in reasonable levels) in our music and thanks to that, we can find impact to our music in almost every metal-listener.

5. How is the feedback for your new album being?
Worldwide release will be in December, after what will be the real feedback. For now, album is out locally and listeners with the critics are very excited (what is cool). We’re very glad, for all those good reviews and that we can proudly and worthily present our country on world scene. That’s one of our main goals and we’re going for this one very confidently.

6. And are you personally satisfied with the final outcome?
We’re satisfied by the result by 200%. This album is a result of a couple of years of work and it will sum up an important milestone in band history and will be the new step for us and Atmospheric Metal as a genre in Ukraine.

7. How could you describe this opus in just 3 words?
Atmospheric. Power. Future.

8. How has the production process for your new release been?
We were working in studio from March till mid-September. As for me — half a year is a very big term for recording a qualitative LP. We were recording in a classical scheme: first were the drums, then bass, guitars, keyboards and the vocals were the last.

9. And how do you use to work on the songwriting?
I write the main frame, our drummer writes the arrangement and after that altogether we’re making minor changes, if necessary, and smooth out curves.

10. Finally, what are you near-future plans?
In the nearest future there are a lot of concerts, shooting of another video and a lot of work to do on our new material. So wish us good luck!

11. That’s all from our side, thanks again for taking your time to answer our questions. If you now want to add some final words; feel free to do it.
Guys, believe in yourselves and you will be able to accomplish anything!
