Interview: The Hourglass

Interview with Alma, the vocalist of the Romanian Symphonic metal band, The Hourglass.

By Carla Morton


Hi Alma, how are you?
Hello Carla and greetings to all who read this interview! I’m good, working on new stuff and preparing for the upcoming gigs. Autumn’s always the best season for both creative and organizational work!

When was The Hourglass formed?
Well, the plan to found this band was set somewhere during the fall of 2010 but it materialized only in 2011. Me and Bogdan (our drummer) phoned our guitarist from the previous project, and that’s how all has started. We self-released our demo, “Requiem”, on the last day of 2011 but we can say the band exists for real since our first live gig (April 2012).

Interview: Lupu’ Cel Rau

Interview with Bogdan, the guitar player of the Romanian metal band, Lupu’ Cel Rau.

By Carla Morton


Hi Bogdan, how are you?
Hello, I am quite good thank you for asking and thanks for the interest and the opportunity to present my band to your readers.

Beside the Gothic metal band Magica, you take part in another band called Lupu’ Cel Rau. When was the band formed?
Well you see Magica as “gothic” because the influences you find in the vocal parts. Besides that, instrumentally speaking Magica is more of a power metal group because that is the music that I like and the style that I have continued with my second group “Lupu’celRau”, band that I put together in January 2012.

Do you have some releases? If yes, tell me about them.
We are exactly on the brink of releasing our first material that will be called “Povesti din padurea de metal” (Stories from the metal forest) and until the album will be on the market you can enjoy a video that we made for one of the songs on this album, a track that is called “Haita” (The pack). You can find it on YouTube if you search for it.
