In Corona Corner, we are asking musicians how the outbreak has effected them, how did they adapt to the situation, what did they learn. Danilo Trbojević, vocalist of Serbian thrash/crossover band Nadimač, speaks how he sees the whole situation with Corona Virus.
Hi! How are you doing during corona outbreak?
Well, its very boring to be honest. On the other hand, like any other mass hysteria, global hysteria, its interesting to watch world and people around you… And movies. But i was and i am hanging out with friends, and doing creative things, so it’s ok.
What have you cancelled/postponed due coronavirus?
Some of the gigs, like those in Slovenia and Slovakia, and our home city, Belgrade.
How the global coronavirus pandemic is directly impacting bands?
As everybody else, but depends on if band members are living of the bands profit.. I guess in most cases they are in bad situation. In case of underground bands, there are very few gigs, but more time to rehearse and make music… Which is good thing about bad situation.
How are you keeping your fans during this chaotic period?
We don’t have fans. But we post music on our pages on you tube. And since you have to pay to reach, and we wont, we stay on the margin, which is ok.
What will metal look like when we re-emerge from isolation?
Don’t know, maybe refreshed.
Who will suffer the most after all: musicians, organizers promoters…
As I said. Depends of style and aspirations of band and band members, and everybody else… I guess people who like going to the gigs are in bad situation.
What is your isolation soundtrack?
Kud idijoti – Dan kada sam ostao sam.
Besides gigs, what/whom do you miss the most?
Well just gigs, everything else is there i guess, rehearsals, hanging out, recording etc.
Do you have any rehearsals during quarantine? If yes, how do they look like?
We did and we do, as usual. In the isolation period we didn’t had any because the studios were closed, and we don’t have our own studio or equipment.
Thank you so much for your time. Stay safe!
Thank you for the questions and support!
