How'd you get started in Music?
I have been play something as long as i remember. I had my first band when i was 16 and recorded my first songs when i was 17.
After a injurie i had to quit play for 15 years. When i started again it was from the beguining. Then i play in different cover band for many years.
One day i just quit and say i need to do something that is mine. That is me. So i started Carmilla as project. We started to record ” I am the Danger” and find Oksana at the net. We decide to meet and record that song. The day after we decide that we all want to do a album. Different member have been involved but now we all feel that we are a band.
Who are your inspirations or influences?
Its been many thru the years. To start with it was Ramones but it fast move over to AC/DC and later Thin Lizzy. Deep Purple has always been a huge influence. Iron Maiden Yngwie and Gun s roses during the 80is. Butt hen something happens i start to listen to Pantera and that lead me in to In Flames Entombed and the Swedish death came in to my life. Today my biggest influences are Lamb of God and Arch Enemy
What advice would offer aspiring performers?
What ever you decide to play in instrument and music just have fun. Try different things and different music.
Listen to advice but go your own way. If you play what you want to play you will never fail.
How do you set yourselves apart from other bands or singers?
I think and hope that we make and do what we like and want to do? If we want to do a slow song we dare to do it.
We just play metal music our way as we like it. But we have a great singer in Oksana. To be honest she is top 10 when it comes to Clean/Growl combination as we see it. We got a extrem talent drummer in Dennis and Felix is world class bass player. S we are blessed to be able to the music we want.
Any new gigs or albums in the future?
At the moment we are in the studio and pre recording our new album. We had a great gig summer but we all feel that we need to record a few new songs. Our intentions are to realise new music Q1 2020. We often hear that we are better live and that makes us so proud. We all do this for the gigs and we will be back on stage next year better than ever.
