Interview with Stela for MetalMessage and Markus Eck

Depth of feeling and highest devotion are the primary mission statements in the uplifting sound of the romantic sextet, which pays a touching homage to the yearning for the beautiful. With the original debut album „For All Beyond“, the musicians are now looking forward to further expanding their name recognition.

As singer and main composer, classically trained Stela Atanasova knows to report, her band has become a tight-knit group over the years since its founding in 2010.

The more than 12 million (!) views of „Crying Of The Sun“ surprises so many Metalwings-newcomers. Many of them may puzzle, how a rather unknown and small band out of Bulgaria reached this great result … be so kind and bring light into the dark!


„Maybe some things can not be explained – they just happen. And your question immediately reminds me of ‚The Lord Of The Rings‘. [smiles] Sometimes the smallest, even inconspicuous things or people can roll over the world. The fact that the world nowadays moves under certain rules and laws does not mean that it is the best order or that it will continue to dominate forever. Why do we have to stereotype that only famous bands from the western world can attract people’s attention. Why do not we think that people are thirsty for new music, new faces, unknown and small bands from small countries like Bulgaria. [smiles] Another reason to get so big attention to our band is the fact that many people are more and more thirsty for beautiful and sentimental music – against the backdrop of the increasingly aggressive and brutal world we live in. I guess this is also one of the reasons why people need something beautiful that inspires them and save them from reality. We are all creators and we have the talent to give joy to people – this is our biggest prize. Several years ago I asked myself a question – why am I making music? To become popular and rich? To become a star? I needed just one minute to answer this question. Because I want my music to be heard by as many people as possible. It is not important whether this will make us popular – the important thing is that people want to listen to us, to watch us and to look forward to every our new song or album. So I know we are already rich because our music sounds in the homes of so many people all over the world and because we have our families, friends and fans. There is no secret behind the success of ‚Crying Of The Sun‘. There is only a magic. I have always said it – when you do something with your heart, with no hidden motives, it returns to you a hundredfold.“
