Today we’d like to speak about support. As you may know, IGNEA and lots of other emerging bands are so called Do It Yourself artists. What does that mean? That means that we do everything on our own: writing and recording music, promoting our band, paying for the studio time and mixing our tracks, for shooting videos and all the stuff. We therefore would like to speak on behalf of all such artists and bands today and thank you for your endless support, be it buying our tracks or just writing motivating comments. This is an unbelievable experience and this is what makes us move on.
For you to understand, music is still the core of everything that we do. This is like a house we all live in. But it needs money for a good house foundation, for having the walls painted well, and for being able to arrange huge parties and have all the friends invited.
Back in 2014, we were called Parallax and have released a single called Petrichor.
Petrichor is the earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil. This is a Greek word, a blend of petra meaning “stone”, ”related to rocks”, and ichor, the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods in Greek mythology.
What is oriental metal? This is one of the first questions we get when introducing our band IGNEA. Perhaps, this genre is not as clear and well-known as death metal or metalcore, but still it has its representatives, key features, and listeners.
