PostSubject: Ailyn Interview with The Gates of Metal Blog   Tue Jan 18, 2011 4:07 pm

Hanna Tsepesh: Hola (Hello in Spanish) Ailyn! Thanks so much for accepting this interview and Welcome to THE GATES OF METAL! First of all: how are you and how are the things doing with your concerts?
Ailyn: Hello Hanna! Thanks to you for your time . I’m fine and very happy. Everything is going perfect with the band and with our concerts.

Hanna Tsepesh: Can you tell to us little bit about you and your background? You have any singing lessons or any other preparation? I take this opportunity to send you my congratulations for your work on this album and saying that you have a beautiful voice.

Ailyn: Thanks for your words!! I started singing when I was 12, I think. I have always sung all kind of genres, from pop to R&B, classical, metal…In 2007 I auditioned for a musical TV reality show and I was selected. I was off the competition the 5th week and from there I had been searching for opportunities to continue singing. Being Sirenia’s singer wasn’t planned, in fact it was a surprise. When I was 15 I went to a musical school, but personal reasons made me be there for just one year.

Hanna Tsepesh: In your opinion what you bring to Sirenia? It was easy for your integration?

Ailyn: I really don’t know to answer this question, I've never liked talking about myself. I think my integration with the band was really easy, they are very very good people and they helped me at all times so that I could feel comfortable. They are my friends, we work together, but the most important thing is that they are like a family to me.

Hanna Tsepesh: In the future, you think to write some lyrics for Sirenia?
Ailyn: I never composed music, because I don’t play any instrument, but I really like writing, I have some lyrics somewhere secretly kept. In fact I never thought about any of my lyrics being used with Sirenia, I love how Morten composes…Who knows, maybe in the future… But I think we all love to hear and enjoy his lyrics.

Hanna Tsepesh: What are your favorite bands? You have any musician that you admire the most?

Ailyn: There are lots of bands I like and of course their vocalist…if I say all the names I’d never end!

Hanna Tsepesh: You have another band or some future project? You are open to new challenges?

Ailyn: No. Right now my future plans are to continue for many years with Sirenia.

Hanna Tsepesh: I see some nice pictures with a very known metal musicians on your MySpace. From all the musician that you know so far, what was your favorite one and why?

Ailyn: All of them!!! It’s always nice to meet musicians from other bands. I think I got nervous with all of them. I am a shy person, so whenever I meet someone I get nervous!

Hanna Tsepesh: Let’s talk about the “The 13th floor” album. For people who don’t listen yet can you tell to us about this album?

Ailyn: I think that “The 13th Floor” is a very interesting album musically, the compositions are very well done, it’s a melodic and powerful album. The songs on “The 13th Floor” have a lot of energy, I think it’s a mix of former albums and that’s great because you can hear a little bit of each thing you like of each album.

Hanna Tsepesh: at recording studio, you faced with difficulties? If yes, tell which was and how as the whole process for you?

Ailyn: The recording was very important to me ‘cos it was my first recording for something so big like Sirenia. Was really easy and I had so much fun!! At first I was a bit nervous but to work with Morten is really nice, he knows exactly what he wants. He trusts me at all times and that made me feel calm.Hanna Tsepesh: How has the response been to the album by the fans and media?

Ailyn: We are really happy with the response. At the beginning I was a bit worry because I was the new singer and I didn’t knew how people would respond.

Hanna Tsepesh: what is your favorite music in this album and why?

Ailyn: It’s really hard to pick just one, because I love them all. Now I’d say one name, and in some minutes maybe I’d change my mind. But I can say that from the moment I heard “The Seventh Summer” I knew it would be my all time favorite or one of them. I can’t say why, I think this song is perfect and also “The Seventh Summer” really fits my voice

Dreams pass by silently, I see them waving back at me
All hope is long since gone, I guess it really never was there at all
