Progressivista metallia black metal höystein soittava Paracrona vastaili Metalliluolan kysymyspatteristoon. Tutustu yhtyeeseen alla.

Bändin nimi: Paracrona
Yhtyeen genre: Øystein: We play some sort of progressive death metal with elements of black metal. Ringo: It’s really a mix of different elements of music. It’s a very sophisticated metal that’s why we call it Titanium. To make titianum metal is a very hard long and dificult process, just like our music. It’s very strong but still lighter and it’s more beautiful to look at.
Ketä yhtyeeseen kuuluu: Ringo Van Droffelaar – vocals
Øystein Hansen – guitar
Audun Melbye – guitar
Gregg Roland Schneider – bass
Laszlo Juhos – drums
Siri Valdman – backing vocals
Mistä yhtyeenne on kotoisin: Øystein: We’re located in Oslo, Norway. Ringo is from the Netherlands.
Yhtyeenne esikuvat: Øystein: I would say bands like Dimmu Borgir, Mayhem, Swedish death metal and lots of other music not necessarily metal bands.Ringo: Even Queen and Elvis!
Kertokaa yhtyeenne taustatarina: Øystein: It all started back in 2007 actually. I met Ringo at Wacken 2007. I heard somebody performed a very crisp black metal voice around my camp, and I approached the guy and it was Ringo. I said “I would really like to hear that voice on my record someday”.
Two months later Ringo showed up at my doorstep and we started making music. It didn’t go very far at the time and a lot of things in life led up to us not doing any music for this project for 9 years.
But in 2016 Ringo came back from business and we started working on our debut album “Sun god”. We had a lot of delays such as the pandemic and Ringo has been battling cancer in 2021 and is still recovering from that.
Minkälaiset tavoitteet yhtyeellänne on: Øystein: Create more music, play the big festivals in Europe and maybe go to America one day.
Minkälainen työnjako musiikin tekemisessä on: Øystein: Ringo and myself wrote the album in it’s entirety. I played the guitars and bass.
Ringo did the lyrics, vocals, and we did keyboards, fills and arrangements together.
Baard Kolstad played drums on “Carry the Cross” and “Thriller”. Siri Valdman did backing vocals and the artwork, she’s also our manager.Ringo: I also made some riffs here and there but most of the riffs are Øysteins. For the riffs, I made I hummed and singed some of them and Øystein played them. He is a dream to work with!
Millainen kokemus bändinne on livenä ja miksi yhtyeenne keikoille kannattaa tulla: Øystein: It will be dark and heavy but we’ll also bring in dancers and it is probably not the ordinary metal show people are used to. We try to do something else.
Uusimman levynne nimi: “Sun God”

Levyn kansitaide: Siri Valdman
Avatkaa uuden levynne/julkaisunne taustoja. Mikä on toiminut sen inspiraationa ja miten tuotos on syntynyt: Øystein: It has been a long road. I would say life experiences, good and bad, and all the s**t going on in the world. And of course the love we have for metal music.Ringo: It’s also about seeing with open eyes and share our wisdom to warn not to fall in the same traps…
Minkä bändin kanssa lähtisitte kaikkein mieluiten kiertämään maailmaa: Øystein: I don’t know. Ringo: Any good band will do as long as they are cool, intelligent people. Maybe Behemoth would be cool!
Jos uudelta levyltä/vanhasta tuotannosta pitäisi suositella kahta biisiä, niin mitkä ne olisivat ja miksi: Øystein: That’s a hard one… I’m an avid Dissection fan. Go listen to “Soulreaper” of the “Storm of the light’s bane” album it’s a killer! Necrophagist – “the stillborn one” no need for explanation, it rips!Ringo: Do you mean songs that we have made? In that case I would like to recommend River of Pain and Reasons from the album Sun God.
It’s some important messages.
Mikä musiikki kolahtaa yhtyeellenne juuri nyt: Ringo: Harry Gregson-Williams and Gorgoroth!
Muita asioita, joita haluatte kertoa yhtyeestänne: Ringo: It was a fantastic journey to make this album. We have definitely learned a lot. strong possession has taken place a lot on this album To try to take total control is to have no control. Thank you!
