Interview with DIONISYAN

Hi! Tell me about your band and what kind of previous experience do you have as musicians?

In my 20 years of career, I have always been very important to the compositions, arrangements, orchestrations, lyrics and artworks of my Albums of my Bands SORTILEGIUM, GATES OF EDEN, LEPER DIVINE, eriaminell and of course “DIONISYAN”.
As for DIONISYAN’s first EP “Land of Dreams”, the first album “The Mystery of Faith” and the second new album released a month ago, “Delirium of Madness”, I wanted to give a strong and impactful identification with Spirituality coupled with philosophy.
I am academic teacher of music, composer, arranger, orchestrator, poet, multi instrumentalist, musical producer and sound technician.

Why did you decide to play the genre or genres you do?

My second DIONISYAN Opera Magna “Delirium and Madness – Concerto Grosso Opera °2 in G Minor, in which I reinvented and renewed the polyrhythmic counterpuntic polyphony of baroque music in metal style. It’s my 6th career album and it’s my absolute masterpiece, where I’ve surpassed myself, in every detail, compared to the first album of DIONISYAN “The Mystery of Faith” which is already very complete and intricate

What can you tell us about your latest record?

Certainly it is a pioneering album of a new genre; the atmospheric baroque doom metal.
Absolute melody, harmonies from the first to the last note of the opera, lyrical and modern female singing alternating, baroque music with progressive metal in an original and innovative blend.

What the kind of album feedbacks are you waiting for?

Certainly to have a good worldwide audience and new fans who buy the album. with “DELIRIUM AND MADNESS” with his originality, it is always paid back to who already copies what others do to go safe offer nothing interesting.

Are you gonna to make some world tour in the future? Do you think this is available for everybody option to tour around the globe? What do you think band have to do to get such opportunity?

I hope so, now I have signed with music faktory book agency management and we are waiting to start some live concert to promote the second opera of Dionisyan.

Do you believe in heavy music scene without money?

Absolutely not. It isn’t professional, only mercenaries.

What do oyou think about online music sharing? Do you ever give your music away for free? Why?

I don’t think it is a good way to promote professional artist and of creasonsourse I don’t give my music away for free for no reasons.

Who are your musical influences? Have you ever think your band could be so famous as your favorites?

Initially Pink Floyd and then the first metal bands such as Europe and then to Candlemass, who made me understand what the kind of metal I would have loved and played with one of my bands DIONISYAN. I have many influences from classical music.

Do you have a formal music education? Do you think it’s a Kind of important thing?

Since I was child, I was a prodigy child for art and music. I loved rock and Metal Music at the tender age of 3 years. I lived in the ’80s, the golden age of metal. But my favorite metal genre was and it is the Doom Metal with most sub styles.
I am a professional artist, I live for art and, in the case of music, as well. I am also artistic director at cultural associations where I organize artistic performances.

How do you balance your music with other obligations – mate, children, job?

With no boundaries. My music is for all.

How do you handle mistakes during a performance? Or you can assure there are no any mistakes during your gigs? Do you get nervous before a performance or a competition?

Normally I don’t make mistake during my live performance. I studied jazz and fusion and this envolved in me how play and performing on front thousnd people without adrenaline.

What’s next? Thank you!

Thanks to all that have read, thank you first of all to the webzine for the space they gave me to let me know and my Dionysians. Buy Delirium and Madness and discover a magical world of music, dreams and spirituality between the ancient and the modern world.
