Hi THE RINN! How are you doing these days?
Roma: Hi! We are really excited before our first gig outside Russia – we will play in Tavastia, Helsinki on 05.01.2018! We’re also preparing some new songs for the studio!
How would you classify your music? Do you agree with the reviewers who trying to describe your musical genre?
Veronica: I tend to classify it as fantasy metal. That’s what it is, really. We’ve got so many different flavours in our songs: you can hear ethnic and folk bits, power metal rhythmes, unexpected dance lead synths or accordeon solos, hard riffs, academic choirs and more. You know, the world is diverse, and so is our music, and it’s always about mystery and magic.
Vasily: It is up to fans to classify muisc, we just play what we like.
Who are some of your top 5 musical influences?
Veronica: A-ha, Culture Club, Children Of Bodom, Nightwish, Loreena McKennitt.
Roma: Music from old video games, eurodance, finnish power metal… Some folk infuences, maybe.
What do you want fans to take from your music, just a moods, maybe some ideas an so on?
Roma: Mood and atmosphere are the most important! Everything else is going out of these two things!
Tell us about your latest release?
Roma: We are really proud of our debut album «Stories Of The Green Fairy», it has taken a lot of time to make it the way it is right now, we have grown and learnt something new. We put our heart and soul in this music.
Album combines electronic, folk, symphonic, maybe, even some kind of ambient genres in it. I think almost everyone can find something for himself in our music.
And at the same moment all this music is absolutely sincere, not like we wanted to make it for as wide audience as possible, like some pop bands do.
What do you love and hate about the music business?
Vasily: We make our first steps inside this hell! It is difficult to tell something certain at the moment.
What is the best concert you have been to? What do you like most about playing live?
Vasily: All our gigs are somehow special to us. We play to share our good emotions with people, to make our world a better place. Each smile of a person, who listens to us, does matter.
How have you evolved as an artist or band over the last year?
Roma: Work in the studio brought a lot of experience of nuances of playing, mostly technical things. That matters a lot. And gigs brought experience of sharing our emotions and energy with people, that matters even more.
If you could meet, play a gig, co-write a song, have dinner, get drunk with any band or artist (dead or alive) who would it be?
Roma: For me it would certanly have been Gary Moore. I think he was the most sincere musician in rock/metal music. So… even dinner with him would have been just beyond awesome.
Veronica: I wouldn’t mind meeting with Jorn Lande. And, surely, to co-write a song or to play a gig is much more interesting than just to have dinner.=)
What is next for you?
Vasily: Next things are to live and to write new music!
