Metal Anarchy’s Music In The Age Of COVID-19 Series: Interview With Next Door To Heaven

Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “Music In The Age Of COVID-19” series, the feature where I discuss the ongoing pandemic with various musicians. This time I have an interview with Evgenii “Gene” Mazunov of Next Door To Heaven.

METAL ANARCHY: How have you been holding up during the coronavirus pandemic?

MAZUNOV: As you know, every musician in industry lost many chances and opportunities to perform and earn money. So pandemic really impacts everyone of us.

METAL ANARCHY: Have you been using your downtime to work on new music?

MAZUNOV: Yes, we have but that was a very tough period of time. We’ve created songs for our new EP and continued working on something else.

METAL ANARCHY: What was the last show you played or attended before the shutdown?

MAZUNOV: The last show was in Saint Petersburg. That was a really nice show.

METAL ANARCHY: Are you planning to play any livestream concerts during this time?

MAZUNOV: Not yet. We’re busy with something else, but it’s a secret for now. We’ll announce it soon.

METAL ANARCHY: Do you think the live entertainment industry will ever recover?

MAZUNOV: Of course it will! People can’t live without live shows, communication, entertainment! Human is a social animal.

METAL ANARCHY: Lastly, is there anything fans can do to help your band or others that may be struggling during this time?

MAZUNOV: The most important thing during these darkest times is to help musicians with your feedback and helping them financially. You can buy our merch and our music. It really helps!
