Latest Bandcamp Release

Interviews: SUNRISE


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the  Power Metal band, 
SUNRISE from Ukraine. 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?

It was 2003 when I and former guitarist of SUNRISE - Vitalii Petrichenko tried to figure out some name for the band. We wanted it to be something bright and optimistic. So suddenly the name SUNRISE came to our brains simultaneously. It was just like an apple, which felt on Newton's head. But in our case, there were two heads

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

We lowed power metal from the start. We were big fans of Strato, Sonata, and other highlights of that days. We just wanted to play something like this. So we started from covers to the songs of Stratovarius.

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

Yes, we were students in the same university.

4. Each band member's favourite band?

Konstantin: - "It's a big list But within the genre are Stratovarius and Sonata Arctica"

Daria: - "Alice in Chains, Kiuas"

Vlad: - "Megadeth, Rammstein"

Aleksander: - "Ne Obliviscaris, Devin Townsend Project, Obscura, Whitesnake" 

Maksym: - "Pantera, Helloween, Symphony X, COB"

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Every time it is different. Often it's just the part of the new song which starts to play in the brain. It just comes as someone turns on the radio.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was the acoustic show in Kyiv Planetarium at the end of 2020. It was a mesmerizing show with 360 degrees visualization of space art.

7. Where would you like to act?

We think that our music fits the big venues. We are playing loud, vocalist likes to move actively across the stage, so the clubs from 500 and more people are what we love. But it's no problem for us to play in small clubs, closer to people, especially when we have acoustic performances.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Anybody from the power metal circle. It's always a pleasure to connect with someone who's on the same vibe with us. On our new album, we recorded the song with the feature of Mayo Petranin, the singer of Symphonity and Castaway. In the end, we have a metal-opera-like song! 

9. Whom not?

Maybe we cannot work with rappers. Just can't imagine combining rap and power metal.

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

Maybe some of us has this fright but nobody confesses There is one good way not to suffer from stage fright - to play concerts as often as you can. Then you become like a duck to water) Also always keep yourself in a positive mood before the show.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

It changes with time. The first albums we made being inspired by Stratovarius and Sonata Arctica. The inspiration for the last album was even Fear Factory and Dream Theater. Let's see who's next for the future songs!

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

To buy our pants

13. What do you think of your fans?

We love them. They make us move forward. It's just good to know that somebody in the world waits for something new from us.

14. What do you think of our site?

The site is attractive and contains a lot of interesting info!

15. Something to add?

Music can change the world. So let's save the good music to have the good world around!
