SYMURAN (for Queens of Steel)

 
1. Hello, thanks for answering to our questions. What are you guys currently up to?
Khort: Hey! it’s a great pleasure to us to be interviewed by you. Symuran horde slill working for new matherial and we are trying to combine it with rehearsing with new members that recently accepted the invitation to join us. Also, we don’t miss the opportunity to devote time to the families and jobs.

2. First off, could you make some history of the band?
Khort: Our band was found in 2008 by Vlad Rommel and in a short period Symuran was in a full staff. After a few bad-quality demos we started to record our first album and in Octber 1st “Syklus av Helheim” was released by Metal Scrap Records. Current members are Vlad Rommel (vox) and Khort (bass) and, as i sad before, we’re making steps to return to give live performances again.

3. How could you describe your sound?
Khort: In Symuran first album we tryied to mix Technical death metal with fast black metal components. So we used different drums range with the deep bass sound, guitar catchy melodies and vocals range from high pitched black metal screams to deep death metal growls. So you can hear it all in “Syklus av Helheim”.

4. What are the band’s main musical influences?
Khort: There are a lot of bands that have influenced our music. Among them Behemoth, Zyklon, Slayer, Sepultura, Amon Amarth, Dark Funeral, Fleshgod Apocalypse, King Diamond, Nile, Immolation and so on. Our own personal preferences in music are very different from Pagan, Folk and Viking to Black and Death metal.

5. How is the feedback for your new album being?
Khort: We received a lot of reviews from many webzines and metalsites and still receiving it, some of them published in our VK official page. All this makes our music worthy to be played.

6. And are your personally satisfied with the final outcome?
Khort: I have conflicting answers: from the one side we made great efforts to got a quality recorded album and it sounds great, but from the other side, we are always developing ourselves so now when i’m listen to it sometimes i wanna change something in tabs or sound of an instrument in some parts. Generally, I’m satisfied with the final outcome.

7. How could you describe this opus in just 3 words?
Khort: Faster! Harder! Darker!

8. How has the production process for your new release been?
Khort: Our guitarist gives us some new riffs or a full song and then we try to think together where can we make some changes… if it’s necessary. Another important element was to create a symbolical art so special thanks to a young painter from St. Petersburg. Now we have almost all material for a Symuran full-length CD, and we shall start recording as soon as possible.

9. And how do you use to work on the songwriting?
Khort: Everybody has it’s secrets. At the moment I’m almost finished writing another song and it takes a lot of time (over 2 month) because I need some special mood and often rewrite some parts to try find something better.

10. Finally, what are you near-future?
Khort: We planed to give several concerts in the next year and please you with our new album release. Also, i hope “Queens Of Steel” will interview us again.

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.
Khort: Stay tuned!
