In Corona Corner, we are asking musicians how the outbreak has effected them, how did they adapt to the situation, what did they learn. Israeli based Fatum Aeternum used their time wisely and prepared new EP for us “Singing Songs of Desperation” during the lockdown.
Hi! How are you doing during corona outbreak?
We use the time for improving our social media presence, as well as re-branding and giving new life to some of our older releases. Mostly, we’re promoting our latest EP “Singing Songs of Desperation”.
What have you cancelled/postponed due coronavirus?
For the last year we’ve worked on our EP “Singing Songs of Desperation”. When the pandemic broke and the whole country (and the world gradually) went into lockdown, we didn’t know what really to do, and just released it online (in case it’s the end of the world). So any plans we might have had about release events died before we could even start planning them.
How the global coronavirus pandemic is directly impacting bands?
Making tours and performances in general impossible.
How are you keeping your fans during this chaotic period?
Thank God we have the Almighty Internet 🙂
What will metal look like when we re-emerge from isolation?
Probably scared and gloomier than before.
Who will suffer the most after all: musicians, organizers, promoters…
You forgot club owners and working staff (sound men, lighting designers) as well. Everyone took a blow.
What is your isolation soundtrack?
Because we were just finishing our EP, it unintentionally became our soundtrack for this period of time.
Besides gigs, what/whom do you miss the most?
Although unrelated, we miss the cinema, it was a source of clearing our minds and sometimes inspiration for new songs.
Do you have any rehearsals during quarantine? If yes, how do they look?
No, we just kept in touch online, waiting and hoping for better times, discussing some future plans.
Thank you so much for your time. Stay safe!
Thank you for your question and take care too.
