In Italy "It’s really hard to be noticed and not be compared with veterans like Lacuna Coil".
Country - ITALY
Genre - GOTHIC METAL
Label - REVALVE RECORDS
Since your debut album 'Fall From Heaven' dropped last year, what has been happening in the camp? Have there been any new songs? Any line up changes?
Yes, a lot of things have happened. Lately we had an important line-up change. In fact our drummer Zeljko left and went back to his hometown in Serbia. So our new drummer is Paolo Faccioni, he is a great drummer and a funny boy! On the 31st May we re-released our album “Fall From Heaven” with some new distributors.
Taken that Gothic Metal is a fairly popular genre globally, is it popular in Italy? What bands are there in this genre?
In Italy it’s not the most popular genre. Anyway there are some great bands like Lacuna Coil, Mandragora Scream, Theatres Des Vampires, etc.
Do you feel the Italian metal scene is not getting enough attention that it deserves?
It’s a matter of fact that in Italy there are loads of metal bands, but really few are known internationally. Anyway for newcomers it’s really hard to be noticed and not be compared with veterans like Lacuna Coil.
How did Sin Deadly Sin get signed to Revalve Records and what was your fans reaction to this?
We got signed by Revalve Records after being contacted by the label’s management. They heard our music on MySpace and we met and found out there could be a great cooperation.
Has Sin Deadly Sin played any festivals and have you (or are you) played / playing outside of Italy?
Last year we played at few big festivals, like Metalcamp in Slovenia and Metalfest in Croatia. We have also played at the biggest open air festival in our country like Rock Im Ring and Alpenflair, and at some contests.
What future plans does the band have and what challenges would you say lay ahead for the band?
We are looking for some opportunities to play live and promote our music in Europe.
Finally are there any hello's, thank you's, greetings you wish to say to friends, family, fans, etc?
Yes, we’d like to thank all of our fans and supporters, everyone who enjoyed our music, our label, and of course, you Rhys!
