Defect Designer Explains Difficulties Of Being A Metal Band In Russia

Seymour Duncan's Voices of Metal has posted an interview online with Dmitry Sukhinin of Defect Designer, in which Dmitry discusses being a metal band in Russia and more. An excerpt from the interview follows.

Voices of Metal: What difficulties did you encounter being a rock musician in Russia?

Dmitry: Only passionate people may be musicians. It is the same is in Russia, but the music business is more complicated here. If you play metal and especially death metal, you must prepare for war! However, it is all worth it - nothing can compare with the feeling of when you hear your music live, and the audience appreciates it – this sensation is the perpetual motion engine!

Russia is the biggest land on our planet, that's why if you're tour, the distance of your travel may become enormous. In Russia, there are tons of problems from the very beginning. Music gear is very expensive here – especially from foreign manufacturers. The stocking level of local dealers is very low and the choice of instruments and amps is not very large. I think that this is the main reason for the small amount of bands in our country.
