Tearless is a Dark metal band from Croatia which have released their debut album this year via WormHoleDeath records. Below you can read an interview with the vocalist of the band, Ivana, who had time to answer my questions about Tearless.
Hi Ivana, how are you?
Hey, I’m great, thanks for asking. I’m enjoying summertime, singing a lot. And also thinking about new and first video with my band members.
Tell me when Tearless was formed.
Since I am quite „new“ in this band, I can not tell you much about band´s history. But as I´ve been told and as I have read, Tearless was formed in 2003. At the beginning, Tearless was a cover band, than soon they have started to work on their own song. At some point the name of the band was replaced with „Seed of evil“, but leater, the band name was changed to „Tearless again“. One of the main characteristics was the unfortunate change of many band members, and perhaps this is the result why the first full lenght album was not released until now.
This year you have relased the debut album „Step Into Darkness“. Tell me about it.
Yes, we have released our first full-lenght studio album for the italian labelWormholedeath. We were all very excited because we have anticipated the release of the album for such a long time. The whole album is actually a collection of songs that were created during the band´s existance. It´s colored with the dark atmosphere, heavy guitar parts, melodic keyboard parts and 3 different types of vocals. There is much more to say about the album, but the best way to get the clear picture about it is to – listen to it. I must say the whole band is proud about our work and the result of the same work,our debut album.
Who mainly writes the lyrics?
Well, all the lyrics and music for this album are written by Zlatko Kušter, one of the founder of the band and only original member of the band. While working on new stuff, we are all trying to contribute to the songwriting, so the new stuff will perhaps sound a bit different, but with the „recognizable“ sound.
Are there any shows confirmed for this year?
We are still making some arrangements, we are planing to make a promotion of a cd that will include a live gig with our friends from Agharti. Also, we got some offers for nex year, so yes, all the dates will be announced soon on our facebook page and on our official website that will be launched soon. Also, you will be able to get our merch on our webshop.
What are the band´s influences?
Well, every band member has it´s own personal influences and that´s quite fine, it prevents us to remain in some „boundaries“. Since Zlatko wrote this album, I could say the band is influenced by his own idols, heroes and bands.
What are the lyrical themes?
Lyrical themes are mostly about the tragical love stories, the loss, pain and melancholy. And embroided with music, they create the dark atmosphere that you can hear in our songs.
Do you have a message for Tearless fans?
Music is the best therapist in our lives. So everybody, listen to good music for your body and soul. Dance, sing, be yourself! Share your passion with the world like we do, cause life is too short not to be loud.
Thank you Ivana, cheers.
