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 Marcello Lega of Søndag.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
LEGA: Hello everyone!
I am Marcello of Søndag from Piacenza (Italy).
The band was born between 2013 and 2014 following the dissolution of the band “Edema” in which me (guitar), Marco Benedetti (guitar) and Riccardo Lovotti (drums) were already playing.
We decided after a few months off to continue with a new musical project, initially set up as a guitar (8-string) and drums duo.
Later Riccardo Demarosi (vocals, bass guitars) and Marco Benedetti (guitar) joined the band.
We spent several months figuring out how to set up the sound of the band using special instruments (8-string guitars and bass VI guitars), mixing heavier sounds with lighter ones to have a unique result.
After the first EP, the flow begun and we released a lot of material and international tours began for years now 😊.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
LEGA: To name a few: Deftones, Bring Me The Horizon, Alice In Chains, Nine Inch Nails.
METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
LEGA: Our latest release is called “Trendsetter”, it’s a very powerful single that fully represents our vision of social networks in recent months.
We are planning another release of a single on August 31 which will be called “Titans”, if Trendsetter has intrigued you, listening to Titans is a must!
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
LEGA: Live shows… what good memories!
Unfortunately this pandemic has deleted that word from the dictionary, but we hope they will return soon.
Usually i would have answered to this question: “Something different.”
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
LEGA: I sincerely hope that our fanbase will expand considerably, thus allowing us to get noticed by big booking agencies in order to support bigger bands on tour and trigger a chain mechanism that makes us play more and more!
