SIDUS ATRUM

blackened death doom / Kyiv, Ukraine 

 SIDUS ATRUM

Blitz Interview. 

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

Sidus Atrum is a one-woman project founded in October 2015. I composed all music during 2015 – 2016 and decided to study extreme vocals after that to be independent in creating of my songs.

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

Well, I thought about recording of Atmospheric Black Metal album at the beginning. While recording the songs I just caught music that appeared in my head and finally it sounds like mix of black, doom and sometimes death. So, let it be blackened death doom metal.

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

My album is a story about pain, despair and self-awareness. I tried to describe with music what I went through by myself. It begins with the fall into deep depression. After some desperate moments and struggle with inner demons comes solitude. There left nothing inside but cold silence. Finally, there is meeting with one’s dark side not accepted before.

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

Music comes first and then I write lyrics. Very often when I start composing a song, I know what it will be about but in my mind lyrics have to fit music rhythmically so it comes later.

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

The idea of cover was mine but the picture was drawn by an artist, whom I explained my visions of night snow desert. This was my imagination how “cold silence” may look like.

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

Sidus Atrum didn’t have live performances yet as it is solo project but I do not exclude such a possibility in future with session musicians.

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

There were a few bands which had some influence on my music. These are Arx Atrata, Raventale and Behemoth.

8. Which Ukrainian doom / stoner / occult groups do you like? Recommend someone to the readers.

I like many Ukrainian metal bands. Among doom related styles I would recommend Raventale and 1914.

9. Share your plans for the future?

I’m recording a single together with one more vocalist now.  I will have some music experiments also on my second album and maybe there will be a video regarding to one of the new songs.

10. Good luck and thanks for your time.

Thank you for interest in Sidus Atrum. I really appreciate your attention. All the best for you and readers.
