Volnaya Staya

1 Ksenia Timonina, what do you do to keep this voice so beautiful?

Xenia: Oh, the main task of every singer is to feel the song and bring emotions to the listeners. Somewhere you can cry and bowl, somewhere whisper. It is necessary to try to keep voice various and colorful. All these things make my voice how it is.

2 What is the main reason that five women joined the heavy metal?

Natalie Terekhova: Some words from the history of Volnaya Staya: The our band’s history differs from the histories of many other bands because of Alex Strike our producer and inspirer. The idea of the project is very simple women heavy metal band with professional musicians.
So Alex gathered together best Russian women musicians and called them “Volnaya Staya”. It was not our own idea.

Marina Malakhova: The band begins in a day of our first performance. It was a Change Your Tomorrow fest (on 9th of September, 2006). The idea of our band is to prove, that Russian rock-scene isn’t only for men!

3 What Alexey Strike is for you?

Xenia: It is very interesting to work with him. He is very talented person and he is endowed with a good sense of humor.

Marina Malakhova: I’m very much obliged to him. He has very strong individuality and it is wonderful to work with him. At the same time he is very charming.

Julie Main: I agree with Marina. I never was disappointed in Alexey over all time I know him.

4 What are the influences of the band?

Natalie Terekhova: Different hard rock and hard’n’heavy bands. For example Kiss, Savatage, WASP, Alice Cooper and others.

5 It came a taste for music, the metal and hard rock?

Natalie Terekhova: Oh no! Taste for metal and hard rock is with me for many years. I’ve played in several Russian rock-bands before Volnaya Staya, so hard music is in my life for a long time.

Svetlana Molchanova: No! I’ve played rock and metal music since my early youth! My older brother Igor taught me to play the drums and it results in my playing in many Russian bands, for example “Marquisa” and “Primadonna”. Thus the taste came many years ago.

6 Staya was released in 2007, you can give us details of all the recording process?

Xenia: It was very cheerful and very hard at the same time.

Marina Malakhova: Yes, I agree with Xenia it was splendid time, we did all we could and made wonderful album.

7 Julie Main and Nataliya Terehova, where is the inspiration to create new music?

Julie Main: There is a great amount of ideas and emotions! Almost everything in my life can give me an inspiration for creation: good or bad weather, smile of friend, song of bird and etc.

Natalie Terekhova: I have very many sources of inspiration: communication with my friends and other people, films, music and books. But the main source is communication with girls from the band: we decide together how any part of song will sound, how we can change melody.
