Today we have the pleasure to talk with Symphonic Destiny, a symphonic metal band from Temerin. For Les Fleurs du Mal it is always a pleasure to spread the work of new musicians like you, a really good and fresh band, ready to show its value to the world. So... let's start!
Les Fleurs du Mal: Let us start telling us something about your band: how would you describe your sound to someone who never listened to your songs?
Our lyrics are based on fantasy stories, and we try to describe them with our music. Also we would use different styles. Sometimes we have slow acoustic symphonic songs, sometimes heavier songs with metal riffs, it’s varying. Try think of it as a fantasy journey. You’re the adventurer and you are discovering our songs/lyrics.
LFdM: If you had to describe your new record “Midnight” to a totally profane listener, having the chance to choose just one song, which track would you pick up?
It’s a tough question, because we have 3 totally different songs on the Midnight EP. For example: Midnight has a catchy melody, and powerful music. Nightmare is a heavy song full of mystery, and fear. Homecoming is a really calm, peaceful, slow song. If we had to choose one song from the EP it would be Midnight!
Symphonic Metal bands usually have female vocalist combined with metal and symphonic sound. It makes the whole thing interesting and unique. You don't usually find female vocalists in other metal genres.
Yes, all of us have played or are playing in other bands as well, with the exception of Timea, this is her first time. Some of us have degrees in music theory as well .
There are a lot of influences, bands like Stratovarius, Epica, Delain, and Nightwish of course, on the other side we also like film music scores. Lyrics are based on fantasy stories.
We are currently working on our first debut album, and after that we will be planning a tour in our country. These are our goals, dreams, and plans for now, so stay tuned!
Thaks a lot again for that chat and good luck for your future!
