Gentle sounds of violin are only the prologue to the epic journey through sometimes dark, melancholic, gothic melodies to Victorians’ score that is a combination of symphonic orchestrations, semi-operatic vocals and tasty, metal riffs. Victorians believe that music, words, images can change both people’s lives and the disappointing world outside your walls.
Commented guitarist Utis: I’m very excited! The demo songs that you heard on the Internet were recorded in our victorian rehearsal room, so just imagine how they will sound recorded in a professional studio with the help of genius producer! Eydis with her operatic (and rock!) vocals and all these beautiful orchestrations. This will be a wonderful journey!
V. added: We are not going to perform a few songs! We are here as aristocrats of the spirit to lead you through the rite of servants of beauty! The world needs a revolution and we need your throats to shout it loud! It is our creed, it’s the key to the world where everything is possible when you are bold and open-minded. Our visuality that refers to that part of soul which wants to be aristocratic and our lyrics that are focused on immortality, beauty and love are only the invitation… will You enter?
Utis: Victorians is being created from the very beginning with higher consciousness. For many years we’ve co-created a variety of bands and other projects, so we’ve gained some experience and stage refinement. When I heard Eydis for the first time I knew that we must prepare something outstanding for her voice. I remember that my first thought was: Oh my god! she can compete with every female vocalist… See if I was right!
