Sibereal Interview


- For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

- Hi guys! We are a group from the Siberian hinterland. Vodka, snow, bears, balalaika. We don't shave our legs or paint our lips, we play uncompromising Siberian rock 'n' roll. At the end of last year we released our full-length album "Blood color sky" and at the moment we are already working on its successor.

- In August you had released a new album, musically how does it differ from your previous ep?

- On the new album, we adhered to the formula "Fuck all the restrictions!" The music has become more extravagant, sensual. It also contains all the songs from the previous release in a modified form.

- The band started out playing 'Black Sabbath' covers, what was the decision behind moving into writings originals?

- Like Black Sabbath we come from working-class areas. Music helped to distract from another beating in the alleyway and other "delights" of harsh reality.

- What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band has explored so far with the music?

- In the lyrics of "Sibireal" one should not look for ideology and morality. Tyrant's poems are an emotional blob. The listener, depending on the severity of the psychopathy, will decide for himself what to use this "fuel" for - to stuff a neighbor's face, roll up to a girl, etc.

- The band also refers to themselves as metal shamans and also includes throat singing and Altai jew's harp in the music, does the Siberian culture and shamanism play a huge role in your music?

- Of course, we feel a connection with the nature of Altai. Millions of people from all over the world strive to come here to feel the energy of the mountains. To survive here, you simply have to be in harmony with nature!

- Originally the band was known as 'Hysteria', what was the cause of the name change and also the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Sibereal'?

- "Sibireal" is only a trademark of our music factory. There is no hidden meaning in this name and etc. We rejected the name "Hysteria", as we considered it trivial and the girls were inactively visiting the reps. After the name change, the situation has improved in this regard. "Sibireal" is the magic of letters.

- Can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork that is presented on the new album cover?

- On all covers of the group there is a mascot "Tatiana". Its prototype is the ex-girlfriend of our vocalist. We plan to use our mascot in all releases and related products.

- What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

- "Sibireal" is a studio project at the moment - we don't play any gigs and we don't plan any until our next work.

- On the album you also done a 'Fatal Energy' cover, what was the decision behind doing one of their songs?

- We always liked what the guys from: "Fatal Energy" did. So, at one time their drummer helped us with drums and arrangements. On EP: "Giennah" you can hear his work. After the death of the "Fatal Energy" frontman, we covered them to honor his memory.

- On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of black and thrash metal?

- Overall, our latest work has received good reviews. Such things are very inspiring to write new songs, which is what we are doing at the moment. Nowadays, many modern musicians masterfully master their instruments, write ideal songs, but they do not have the enthusiasm of the old - good rock and roll - everything is refined.

- Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

- In the future, we see ourselves as Grammy winners in the Hottest Eggs nomination. It would be nice to skate a tour with Madonna.

- What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

- We are all fans of good old rock music, which was and remains our inspiration. Accept, Black sabbath, Metallica, Slayer, Helloween, Destruction, necronomicon, mayhem, immortal-the list is endless. We do not like modern music, but I would like to mention Ukrainian diva "Maruv". She has very great talents !!!

- Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

- Now is a really hard time and in order not to go crazy listen to "metal" guys! This is a vaccine for the soul!
