Metal Anarchy’s Music In The Age Of COVID-19 Series: Interview With VAYA

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 VAYA.

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

VAYA: Hi Metal Anarchy, well we started a post production process at the end of 2019, so we are still on it and are even able to work deeper on some details because everything is slowing down.

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

VAYA: Yes! It is always the same. When I finish an album, the next one comes up right away. 🙂

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

VAYA: It was in Toronto.

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

VAYA: No, because we do not have the time for it. We are deeply involved in the process of the post production of this second Opus.

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

VAYA: We hope so, as well as create new places to express music.

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

VAYA: Simply continue to support our music by listening to it. 🙂 Thank you and all good wishes for Xmas and New Year.

Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to up and coming bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Vaya.

METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:

VAYA: Hi Metal Anarchy, so VAYA is an authentic drop of Energy expressed through Voice, Music and High Drums. A deep and loud white wolf call shaking your heart and your soul 😉

METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?

VAYA: V. VAYA: Universe Laws, my friends 🙂

Phil: A Lot of bands and a lot of guitar players, like Nuno Bettencourt, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Robben Ford, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Santana, etc!

METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?

VAYA: V. VAYA: We are actually promoting our double album on scenes. A special edition of 1000 pieces numbered by hand. Why? To feed their heart and brain with new vibes 😉

Phil: Readers will find out something very new and different from our band because it’s inspired by the Indians of North America and the legend of the white wolf.

METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?

VAYA: Phil: A good feeling between us on stage, a good dynamic, energy and punch in the songs!

V. VAYA: Being a part of the show, being one with us! Come as you are, my friends, VAYA will share the sacred fire with you 🙂

METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band in 5 years?

VAYA: Phil: Oh I don’t know, we’ll see how it works out, lol! 🙂

V. VAYA: Everywhere. I mean on your table? Headphone? ;P Sure!
