Interviews: DOMINIA


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Death Metal/Doom Metal/Black Metal band DOMINIA from Russia. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

Anton Rosa: I was studying at Theatrical Academy in Saint Petersburg, it was in 2001 I guess. The first band name was Tentamentum, we were formed in 1999, but we’ve started to move more from black to gothic metal sound and we’ve decided to change our band name. I remember I used to smoke a lot of weed, and I got this idea after a good joint, and yeah, shit was good... Dominia is still our name!

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Anton Rosa: what genre? Doom? Gothic Doom? Doom Death metal? We don’t know actually what genre we are playing. Some people think we play Melodic Death metal... I was always listening more to doom metal bands in my life and I’m still. So I will always play this genre and some which are close to it.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Anton Rosa: We have formed the band together with Denis, our guitarist. We knew each other a bit. But others, Papa, for example, he joined Dominia in 2004. We didn’t know each other but now we know for sure! And Mikhail, he joined the band this year, 2019. In February I think... and we feel good together.

4. What is your favorite band?

Anton Rosa: Mine was always My Dying Bride.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

Anton Rosa: it was always Love. But I have to say it’s also Krishna. History... alternative history...

6. Where was your last gig?

Anton Rosa: Our last gig was in MOD club in Saint Petersburg with such good bands as Who Dies In Siberian Slush and Marche Fenebre

7. Where would you like to act?

Anton Rosa: I would like to act in Northern and South America someday

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Anton Rosa: hmm. Well... I don’t know. Hard to say indeed. I don’t want to focus on illusions

9. Whom not?

Anton Rosa: Too big list

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Anton Rosa: You just go and do what you can. Don’t think about any tips, just go and do, and focus on your art, on what you’re acting, don’t think about audience if you already on stage, nowhere to go, you are the part of the show, be an actor, play the role, focus on that.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Anton Rosa: Pink Floyd, My Dying Bride, Rotting Christ... and many more

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

Anton Rosa: One guy offered me to go for travel with him to Amsterdam once, he told me he organizes everything. It was after one of our gigs in Moscow. I said YES and we were there for 4 days, smoking weed and having fun and unforgettable time.
