Onydia: Quarantine Story

by Metal Jacket

In Corona Corner, we are asking musicians how the outbreak has effected them, how did they adapt to the situation, what did they learn.

Hi! How are you doing during corona outbreak?
It was a bad period for our career, we took the opportunity to work on our acoustic repertoire and the new record.

What have you cancelled/postponed due coronavirus?
We have postponed many shows, including tours in north and east europe, festivals.

How the global coronavirus pandemic is directly impacting bands?
The inability to perform has changed the current musical world, as well as demolishing the hearts of many artists.

How are you keeping your fans during this chaotic period?
We took advantage of the social media to stay in touch with our fans and produced new material such as the music video of one of our songs in an acoustic version.

What will metal look like when we re-emerge from isolation?
After this period the metal scene will be more interesting and stronger, the themes we will deal with will be very intense and common to the man of our time.

Who will suffer the most after all: musicians, organizers promoters…
I can’t tell you, I want to be positive and hope that everything gets better.

What is your isolation soundtrack?
“Truth is” by Sabrina Claudio.

Besides gigs, what/whom do you miss the most?
Confronting myself with other musicians, writing and rehearsing songs with my colleagues, human relationships.

Do you have any rehearsals during quarantine? If yes, how do they look like?
No, here in Italy it was strictly forbidden but we wrote some songs through online sessions.

Thank you so much for your time. Stay safe!
