After their critically acclaimed first album, “Transcending the Blue and Drifting Into Rebirth” (Wormholedeath Records, 2013/2014), RAINOVER took their time to write a worthy follow-up and the process led them to venture into darker sounds while still keeping their trademark melodies and atmospheres, resulting into a visibly more mature, obscure and complex piece of work.

As previously announced by the band, the first single, named “Lumina Omnia”, counts with the guest vocals of Anders Jacobsson, singer of Swedish doom metal masters DRACONIAN and will belaunched within a couple of weeks as a first taster for the record.Nox

Interview- Deva Obida

DEVA OBIDA’s, Artem Bachturin (guitar and vocals) had the time to answer me a few questions about the band’s new album ‘’Rudiment’’: the musical direction they went through, the influences and other stuff.

First of all, can you make a small intro about Deva Obida, as readers to know about the band.
Deva Obida is a Russian metal band from Murmansk that is situated right on the North West of the country, at the board with Norway and Finland, on the coast of the Arctic ocean. The band that’s been making heavy music for more than 20 years, making new style accents of its creativity in different times. Pagan/doom metal, power/melodic metal, melodic death metal, Gothic metal, folk metal – here’s our approximate path over different genres through the years of being active. It appears rather assorted at first glance, but our music has always been recognizable and got its own pattern. Our discography consists of two full-length releases, demo and several singles. And yes, it’s quite few for so long term of our activity. We also do our best to visualize our songs, releasing numerous videos, which quantity partially covers the small amount of releases. Many participants walked through the band, but its lineup’s been stable for about 5 years. The name Deva Obida (smth. about Maiden Offense in English) appears to be a strange and senseless combination of words at the first look. But as a matter fact it’s a poetical image taken from the ancient Slavonic book, an image which refers to a Swan Maid as a symbol of disaster, strife and doom. Sure thing, no one in Russia and all the more all over the world has an idea about that, so it frequently raises many issues.

This year you’ve released a new album called ‘’Rudiment’’. What is the musical direction you went for this record?
Yes, indeed, our new album was out on March 1st. As I mentioned before, we walked through different genres in our creation and over the years it becomes more eclectic and universal. We don’t play style, we play music. Currently we are trying to combine all the best we accumulated and new ideas. Therefore it’s possible to trace the legacy of our past periods and the evolution of our new sound. The album is an advancement of the direction that took its start on our previous single ‘’Varaka’’. We even wanted to make it a part of an album but later gave up on this idea as we decided to make the completely original stuff. There can be heard death metal riffs as well as hard’n’heavy, Gothic and especially folk that payed much more attention to that before. Samples and synths are almost non existent, but the traditional live instruments came. Some instrumentals showed up, and one of them is fully based right on the sound of traditional folk instruments. That was one of experiments we didn’t grant before. Extreme vocals are almost gone, the clean singing with a great dose of choirs and backing parts is central.
