interview with atmospheric/power metallers Dimicandum (Ukraine)
Dimicandum (Ukraine) In the previous issue of this zine, the review noted, amongst other things, about Dimicandum’s album “The Legacy of Gaia”: “Listeners into modern melodic heavy/power metal and big choruses should look into Dimicandum today.” “There are eight songs on here. No filler, just hit after hit.” “Starting with the first song, ‘The Legacy of Gaia,’ things just get better and sooner than you realize, the album is over with ‘When the Sun Burns Out.’ What is a person to do? Have to play it again.” Dimicandum sounds like melodic, traditional heavy/power metal, with some atmospheric elements and a bit of growling, but framed contextually, and keeping the music very catchy. Roman (vocals, guitars) answers some questions about the band. -- Hello, you are based in Kiev, correct? How is the metal scene in Kiev for Dimicandum? Hi! That's right, we're from Kiev, Ukraine. Our scene is lagging behind the West and now just getting on its feet. We do not have the infrastructure for the development of metal music, all that is done, is done by enthusiast forces alone. The situation with the clubs is stable, it is not always quality concert halls, but there is where to play, there are some cool clubs. In general, each year the development of the scene is enhanced! What are your current objectives? In 2013/2014 we plan to release one more video, new single, and start writing the album, the material for which is now composing. The process is slow, but steady. In the summer we’ll play some festival shows. Also, we plan a concert in Poland (autumn 2014). The new album will be a logical continuation of the previous one, both in music and in the lyrics. We found the style that does not limit our scope and our sound, so we'll stay the course. You have played more than 60 concerts, correct? What have you learned about functioning as a band? Yeah, right. In total, we played more than 60 concerts. Geographically, it is Ukraine and Belarus. The main thing on the tour is to avoid conflicts with each other :) For us, it was very easy, because in our team is very friendly relationships between the musicians. www.facebook.com/dimicandum.official www.dimicandum.com.ua official website www.vk.com/dimicandum_official official VKontakte www.facebook.com/dimicandum.official Facebook www.youtube.com/user/DimicandumTV YouTube www.reverbnation.com/dimicandum Reverbnation www.metalscraprecords.com Metal Scrap Records THE END.
