Interviews: Cyan


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Heavy Metal band, Cyan, from Italy. 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? 

Lorenzo: The name came out after one of the characters from the videogame Mortal Kombat. We had to decide between Cyrax and another character Sektor, but we chose the first one: it’s a name that make us write and play everything we want, it’s not like “Death Angel” or “Rotting Christ” where it’s pretty obvious what you play and sounds!

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

Gianluca: This genre of prog music is what we really like, it really resonates with us and really inspired us to write and create our own music out of sheer passion for it.

Jacopo: We decided to play progressive and avant-guard ‘cause we were tired of conventional language and usual stylistic features of other genres. Indeed the real band’s aim is to not belong to a genre, but change even completely album in album!

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

Gianluca: No, The Band was formed after many rehersal sessions with many different musicians, to understand who were the most passionate and hard working people that really believed in the project.

4. Each band member favourite band?

Gian: Banco, Symphony x

Lore: Rush, Nine Inch Nails

Jacopo: Genesis and from modern band I also like The Contortionist

Marco: Queen, Toto, Uriah Heep, Neal Morse, PFM, Alan Parsons

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Gian: Anything that comes to our mind, we create music while inspired by other music, there is no static subject or ispiration for our music, diversity is key to Cyrax

Jacopo: We don’t let inspire us from artists, themes of our lyrics come mostly from literature (ancient and modern) and social-political contests and situations…

6. Where was your last gig?

Lorenzo:  With the full line up, 22nd February! As an acoustic trio, which sometimes we like to do, in a beautiful location in Northern Italy.

7. Where would you like to act?

Lorenzo: Outside Italy, in particular in places where we know we can make good impressions, like Japan and South and North America.

Jacopo: Maybe into an important metal festival as Wacken or Hellfest 8. Whom would you like to feature with? A gig with an actual orchestra would be' amazing

9. Whom not?

Lorenzo: Incompetent bands and people, unfortunately we have met many of them over the years, and it’s always a though time playing in these conditions. 

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

Gianluca: A bit of stage fight is normal at the beginning, my service would be to concentrate on something that makes you forget your fears, on something that makes you feel good and gives you confidence, you know you can play, dont think too much about it and you wont mess it up

Jacopo: I usually suffer about that into classical music (I’ m also a classical musician) and I think the experience with this band will be a possibly solution about…

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Gian: Symphony x, banco, dream theater, megadeth, but we think music in general never ceased to amaze us in finding new sounds and textures.

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

Lorenzo: I don’t think we’ve had such things, but we’ve had a fan that flew from Hungary to Milan just to see us!

13. What do you think of your fans? They are great, we are more than happy to welcome anyone that likes our work to our community:)

14. What do you think of our site?

Lorenzo: It’s very gorgeous and informative, we like it!

Jacopo: Personally I like it

15. Something add?

Lorenzo: To every music lover and listener, keep following and discover the underground scenes all over the world, there are so many interesting bands who deserves a future and supporting them it’s the only way to make it happen! Especially in these though times! Cheers!
