By Carla Morton
Hi Marya, how are you?
Hi Carla, it’s all fine, thanks!
When was Arsenic Unbirthday formed?
Arsenic Unbirthday was born over ten years ago by two permanent members (Nick and I) and the other two that have joined the band over the years.Emmanuel, the bass player, is a key part of the band for a very long time, while Alessio has joined us only recently, but with a truly innovative contribution. So now I think I can say that in fact the current Arsenic are newly formed, in a sense… in a perfect, electrical and fraternal harmony. But I think that what we are now is the result of everything that comes also from our past.
This year you have released the EP via Epictronic records, ”Ravens and Writing Desk”. Tell me about it.
“Ravens and Writing Desk” contains words, music and arrangements that are so connected through the feelings, thoughts and emotions of each of us. It all started with a sound, a phrase, a vibration… and comes to life through the intimate communication of this strength and fragility. It’s like a long journey into our deepest fears, coming to life to be freed, but also exorcised… This music speaks about us, not the other.
Interview with Andrea Fagiuoli, the bass player of the Italian Rock band, Ravenscry.
By Carla Morton
Hi Andrea, how are you?
Hi, I’m good. Thank you very much for this interview.
Tell me a few words when was Ravenscry formed?
Ravenscry was formed in 2008 by Paul, Simon and me, then Mauro and Giulia joined almost immediately. We wanted to create something unique with her voice and our instruments playin heavy parts.
The last release of the band was in 2014 entitled ”The Attractions Of Opposites”. Tell me about it.
It’s an album who talks about different aspects of live and each one from the opposite point of view. It was recorded in our studio (Ravenstudio), mixed by Roberto Laghi (In Flames) and mastered by Dragan Tanaskovic (In Flames).
Have you got nice reviews about the album?
Actually we only had positive reviews of the album, I think that the worst vote we got was a 7.5 out of 10 or something like this.
Do you have two other releases. Tell me some things about them.
”One Way Out” was our first album, it was released in 2011 and it was the result of many years of work behind the scenes, ”Acoustic Parenthesis of a Dreamstate” is just a gift we wanted to give to our fans, it contains 4 songs in acoustic version taken from our first full length.
What are the influences and what are the lyrical themes?
We have a lot of influences and everyone of us come from a different kind of music, from Fear Factory to electronic music like David Guetta, from classical to pop, nothing is left out.Lyrics are strictly related to the content of the song, we always try to be as much various as we can.
