Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Holló Noémi of Meteora.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
NOÉMI: The band was founded in 2010. From the original members only Máté Fülöp (bass, growls) and Atilla Király (ex-guitar, synth) remain. The current lineup consists of Csaba Solymosi (lead guitar), Gábor Kása (drums) and me. I joined the band in September 2015. It would be hard for us to tell exactly what kind of music we make. We try to play with the contrast between my voice and Máté’s harsh growls and mix it with power, gothic and symphonic elements. We released our first EP called ‘Price of Salvation’ in 2014 with previous members and in 2017 our first album ‘Our Paradise’. We released our second LP called “Tragedy of Delusion” on March 6, 2020.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
NOÉMI: Well-known symphonic metal bands such as Epica, Nightwish or Sirenia always had a great impact on us and I think it’s noticeable in our songs as well.
METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
NOÉMI: Lyric wise our latest album “Tragedy of Delusion” is about misbeliefs and deception, focusing on personal tragedies and global issues alike. If, in the midst of trendy musical tendencies these days, you feel like you miss some classical metal with symphonic elements, female vocals, choirs and powerful growls, we’ve written our songs for you.
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
NOÉMI: We strive to create a classical symphonic metal atmosphere at our shows, so if you would like to have some nostalgic experience or just enjoy this kind of music, you should definitely come to our concerts. 😊
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
NOÉMI: In general, we all wish to help people in Hungary to know and love the symphonic and female fronted metal, and our dream is making Meteora more known in Europe.
