atmospheric doom / Kyiv, Ukraine 


Blitz Interview. 

1. Let's start with the presentation. Introduce your band. Maybe few words about the history of the band?

In our case, NOYDE is not a group, it is more a project created solely for the expression of musical content. Only two people take part both in creating songs and its engineering - Anastasia Lazarenko and Nickolay Romanov. When we met, we realized having lots in common in our perception of what metal and music in general should be. At that time we had been engaged in our own musical activities but decided to fulfil works of different nature which we wanted but couldn’t express in our initial projects (Sunstroke, Edifice).

2. Everybody, as a rule, give stylistic labels. What about you, how do you stylistically indicate your music?

We are not trying to pinch ourselves in the framework of a particular style, as most bands do by copying certain performers. Having chosen atmospheric doom metal as the core, we complemented with its derivatives and other genres so much that we ourselves doubt the proper characterization of our musical direction in “Surface” and it’ll probably be so in our next release.

3. Your album is already available to listeners. How would you describe it?

“Surface” - is our debut release, so it was very important to us. Despite the format of the demo recording, it shows the main principles of Noyde’s vision. Due to certain circumstances, only some of the material planned for release was included in it, but all four tracks quite clearly characterize lots of future directions of our development.

4. If you still separate the music from the lyrics, what is more, important to you? Or is it still a mutually complementary symbiosis?

In our work, these are two equal units by its semantic content which spin in one single emotional dance. But music itself can say much more than words, so the voice is composed and exposed like another musical instrument in Noyde. That’s why lyrics obey to the music according to vocal melody and even certain vowels made up during composition in Vapours and Languishing is completely sung with vocalism. And for the same reason vocal parts and its lyrics are written after almost all the music is done.

5. Do you create ideas for visual creation of your music (cover) by yourself?

Of course. It is very difficult to entrust such work to a person detached from our worldviews, feelings and experiences. Ideas and visual aspects are discussed mutually. The cover to “Surface” was painted in several stages. First, a few sketches in a pencil, then a draft on paper by a liner, then a thoroughly detailed illustration on a graphic tablet.

6. What about the live performances? How does the public perceive your work?

At this stage we do not plan live performances. This is due to many reasons, the main of which is a focus on the creative process. We are filled with various musical ideas, so we try to throw all the energy to implement our plans.

7. Is there any foreign bands that influenced your music, style, lyrics? If there, which ones?

The similarities between our tastes in terms of genres derives from the mutual tendency to very hard and slow riffs like in slamming brutal death and groove metal and the atmosphere of doom, melodic death and funeral. Amongst the bands more or less close to doom metal we both enjoy Black Sabbath, Candlemass, Estatic Fear, My Dying Bride, Tiamat, Skepticism, The Sins of Thy Beloved, The Gathering, Agalloch, Forest of Shadows, Kурск, Hypocrisy and Graveworm which surely vibrate in the deep corners of Noyde’s consciousness.

8. Which Ukrainian doom, stoner and etc groups do you like? Recommend someone to the readers.

Admittedly, we know not so many really good Ukrainian bands. From time to time we come across really interesting releases, but the majority remain unnoticed by us for one reason or another. Talking only about doom/stoner/sludge we can distinguish among others Russian-Ukrainian post-rock doom metal band Kauan, atmospheric Kiev sympho funeral doom project Luna, legendary psyhodelic stoner-sludge band Mozergush, Kharkov atmospheric sludge noisecore Soom and Lviv sludge post-hardcore Asthme.

9. Share your plans for the future?

So far we both have returned again to our initial projects. But we can definitely say that approximately in a year we’ll have released an album, which will be much bigger and even more diverse than the debut demo.

10. Good luck and thanks for your time.

Thank you for your attention and interest to our work! We wish everyone harmony and musical prosperity!
