|Quick Introductory Interview.|
|1. Who are you and how did the band get started?
DinUmbră band was formed in 1998, in Bucharest(Romania). The musical direction of this band was at first to combine industrial-metal with psychedelic music, to create, along with other influences, a new style in Romanian rock. Along time, the band compositions started to sound more like gothic-doom. Currently, DinUmbra's style combines a wide range of influences as doom, death, power and gothic. The lyrics talk about inner states, created worlds of dreams, myths and social ideals.
2. Why did you choose Doom, and how would you describe your style?
We've never choose Doom or other style of metal. We've just put our feelings and our thoughts in our songs and then some people said "It's doom metal" :) (even that was a joke, it contains the basic idea).
As I mentioned above, our style is a mixture of doom, death, power and gothic metal.
3. What would you consider to be the high point of your career so far?
The highest point until now is issuing our fist album (DinUmbră, 2003) distributed by Bestial Records (Timișoara, Romānia).
4. Which three bands most influenced you?
My Dying Bride, Dead Can Dance, Paradise Lost.
5. What are your plans for the near future?
-Producing a new studio album.
-More gigs in Romania and (hopefully) other countries.
