1. Introduce us to your band!
Hello! We are SCARLETH from Ukraine, we are female-fronted melodic/modern metal band. Music is our life, we are happy to meet you and to talk to you!
Victor Morozov – Guitar
Yana Kovalskaya – Keyboards
Ekaterina Kapshuk – Vocals
Igor Chumak – Bass
Philipp Kharouk – Drums
2. How did you guys start out?
Victor Morozov: Basically, it was my idea to form a band. As a teenager, I was impressed by such bands as Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, so I wanted to form my own band. Ritchie Blackmore was my hero, he is the reason I picked up guitar to play.
3. Describe your band’s sound.
Melodic metal with female vocals and unparalleled diversity. We like to mix different styles in our songs, it always sounds fresh and exciting.
4. What influences your craft?
I think life itself is main source of inspiration. Travelling, movies, computer games, anything we do – has its influence. As for bands who have an impact on us I can say – Within Temptation, Black Sabbath and Amaranthe.
5. What makes your band different? Why should people listen to you?
Because our songs are really different to each other, it’s not like 50 minutes of the same stuff all over when you listen to our albums.
You can listen to one track and think that we are a folk-metal band. But the next track could be doom-oriented, and another one can give you some cool and complex prog-like feelings. We really like to include many elements into our songs.
6. When introducing people to your music, what song should I show them first? What is your quintessential track?
I think “Last Hope” off of the latest album “The Silver Lining”. It is an epic track which has all the elements Scarleth is known for. One of my personal favourites by the way.
7. What has been the biggest struggle in your career so far?
The biggest struggle is to find a good record label to release your stuff. We had bad experiences with that before. It’s really difficult to find people who believe in your music and do all they promised to make it well known.
8. What has been the biggest highlight in your career so far?
Playing at Carpathian Alliance metal festival together with Blind Guardian and many other cool bands. That was fantastic evening!
9. How bright is the future of your band – what are the plans?
We plan to release a single and promo video this year. Also, recording of the new CD is in the plans for this year. In 2019 we want to release the new album to tour to support it.
Then we will promote the album and perform on major open-air festivals in Europe. We still need to grow our fan-base, so please subscribe to our social media, you can find links below this interview.
10. When all is said and done, how would you like to be remembered?
As a great band with nice music and lots of stuff to talk about. We play for you, so please spread the word about our band, and see you on the road 🙂
