In Corona Corner, we are asking musicians how the outbreak has effected them, how did they adapt to the situation, what did they learn. Italian Power Metal expert Alex Corona, speaks in front of Revoltons.
Hi! How are you doing during corona outbreak?
I’m feeling now that the lockdown is over here in Italy! It was a crazy time!
What have you cancelled/postponed due coronavirus?
We deleted an European tour! We hope to do it in 2021!
How the global coronavirus pandemic is directly impacting bands?
As i wrote before deleted a tour. Our album has been released February 7 and we could not support it. I think all the band has been damaged by this virus in every kind of aspect!
How are you keeping your fans during this chaotic period?
Through the social media. It is the only way!
What will metal look like when we re-emerge from isolation?
I think there will be a lot of rage both in live shows and compositions!
Who will suffer the most after all: musicians, organizers promoters…
I think everyone! We all lost something!
What is your isolation soundtrack?
PARADISE LOST new album OBSIDIAN! It’s perfect for this period as soundtrack!
Besides gigs, what/whom do you miss the most?
Everything man! Not only related to music but to life in general! I feel reborn again now!
Do you have any rehearsals during quarantine?
If yes, how do they look like? No we didn’t. We live in different towns and we couldn’t move.
Thank you so much for your time. Stay safe!
