PRESENT YOURSELVES OUR READERS...
"Hello my name is Eugeny and I am glad to present you the project Light?..."
WHO ARE LIGHT? BAND MEMBERS?
"Light? is one man band and I answer for everything, that is connected with Light?..."
WHEN DID YOU HAVE FOUNDED THE BAND?
"I have based band three years ago. Initially, the project reflected as death metal act, but in due course I have understood, that this style is too narrow for realization of all my ideas."
WOULD YOU LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THE VERY FIRST BEGINNING OF BAND...
"In the beginning... Light? It was formed on ruins of a band They Die, there I composed all music and the text too. Then we played prog doom. A creativity in They Die has served as a starting point for Light?. A music of that time was very good and I also very much would like to revive They Die but while it is not obviously possible, but... Never say never!"
WHAT'S ABOUT YOUR PREVIOUS RECORDING-EFFORTS?
"About previous? Hah.. In structure They Die I have written down one demo "The Pain Remains" awful quality, but the material on it was wonderful! In archive Light? there is one demo tape. Besides it I recorded with local jazz band."
WHAT'S ABOUT YOUR FOLLOWING?
"After the data demo tapes the album "Mirrors". ?? the given moment in a stage of completion new album " I am nothing ". I hope, that the best album at me ahead was written down is!"
THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTS IN YOUR HISTORY?
"I do not know, I hope that such still more ahead. At present the main event it that my disk is issued also I could inform up to people the creativity, including up to you. I am very glad to this."
WOULD YOU LIKE TO INTRODUCE US "MIRRORS"?
"On creation of an album cunningly 3 months including record. All songs were written by me about one year ago, but to realize them it was possible more recently. This album conceptual, but the concept is incorporated not in texts and in music. Though the most attentive can see a subject line in lyrics too. At once after the ending of record I have sent demo on STYGIAN CRYPT prod. and have soon received the answer. So the album "MIRRORS" became accessible to wider audience.Everyone should find in "Mirrors" something of his... "Mirrors" is a history of failures, falling and reserves which operating this world. I hope that you will listen to this album not only ears, but also heart."
WHY DID YOU SIGN FOR STYGIAN CRYPT?
"Conditions which have offered Stygian were the most favourable. What exactly seems to me such labels can pull out ours underground out from ass!"
WHAT'S ABOUT THE PRODUCTION OF ALBUM?
"Record passed in local studios. The equipment there not so good and can be heard it on an album, but we have tried to do the utmost, that the sound was good. On record I have ruined somewhere 3 months. Instruments and the equipment were so bad, that at all it does not cost to mention them!"
ANY PARTICULAR CONCEPT CONCERNING THE ALBUM?
"Yes, this is conceptual album. And conceptual not on music, but on lyrics. In music the basic idea and semantic loading is made. Each song is natural continuation previous."
WHAT'S THE MOOD OF IT?
"The return side of our life, our outlook, our existence, approximately in it consists sense of all album. All in this world has return side and very much frequently we can not see this side, but we can feel its presence. All this is very difficult and abstract, but I try to comprehend even a small part of all it. It would be desirable to tell, that as a whole the concept is very tragic."
THE SOUND IS GOTHIC METAL WITH VARIOUS OTHER STUFF, RIGHT?
"How many people are so much opinions. " THE SOUND IS GOTHIC METAL WITH VARIOUS OTHER STUFF " this definition which gives a label to my music. Others name my music progressive doom metal with elements of death, black&thrash; prog.gothic metal with black elements and more, more, more... I do not want to hang up labels on the creativity, let it is done by others. Words mean nothing... When I compose music I do not think of genres and I try to not hang up labels on it I think, that to criticism it is necessary to listen, but to her it is impossible to be in earnest too. I realize, that my music is pleasant not to everything but if though one person will tell "Cool!", I shall understand, that I write and play not simply so. There is a set of progressive collectives playing difficult music, but having nevertheless set fans. Music can a life as much as necessary difficult and progressive, but thus she should remain music. If your music it not simply a set of sounds and a part of you, continuation of your soul she necessarily will find a place in heart of other person."
THE MOST SALIENT ASPECTS OF YOUR NEW ALBUM?
"Yes, I have already finished work on a new album. It calls " I am nothing " .On this album is greater guitars, but also about keyboard I too have not overlooked. If to you has liked "Mirrors" also this work is necessary to you as desirable. The new album was written down in ??-??-?? studios with the new sound producer though any cardinal changes in sounding have not taken place. Some changes have touched also a text part. This time I tried to give attention not only to music but also lyrics more. Now texts became less abstract, but thus I tried to make their more dramatic. Still, as it seems to me, songs from a new album became a little bit more rectilinear, though here again you can meet set of changes of a rhythm, the sizes, emotional colouring and structures of compositions. On a new album you also will hear Alexey Smirnov's voice, here he is responsible for parties distorted voice, also in one song is a little his clean vocal. For the basic parties clean vocal new sessional vocalist Alexey Shashlov will answer. Alexey my old friend, he lives with me in one city and I at all did not suspect, that he can so sing. At him a pleasant soft voice which was perfectly entered in an atmosphere of new songs."
WHAT'S ABOUT THE FEEDBACK?
"Connection which connects a new album with previous is very weak, because " I am nothing " is perfect in the other condition and I tested completely other feelings at his creation, but you do not mix him with anything another. You at once will understand that it Light?!"
"Basically, I acted much, being in structure a jazz - ?????. Also I played alive together with local band, but with "Light?" a situation another. Here I always was engaged only in studio activity though to act alive certainly it would be desirable, but it is problematic, since I do not have familiar musicians who would help me with realization of my music on a stage. Probably, in the future I all the same can give concerts, time will show."
YOUR LIFE'S PHILOSOPHY?
"I never adhered to any certain philosophy because I am very changeable. Life is very transient and if we shall continue to sink in egoism, that is whether sense in the further existence? I do not know..."
THE FUTURE OF THE BAND?
"I do not build any plans concerning the future. We shall be ???????? on the best, you see always there is light in the end of tumb. We shall try to look at life from the positive side and I hope, what " Light? " with it will help to me."
ANY LAST REMARKS?
"Thank you for interview! Be free at your feelings and aspirations! Think not only a head, but also heart!
Sorrrrrrrrry for my bad, bad, bad English!"
