It has been a couple of years since I last interviewed you guys. What has happened since the release of your EP in 2016?
Stela Atanasova: First of all – thank you for this interview and for the chance to tell the world some news about the band. Lots of things have happened since the release of our EP in 2016. After the release of “Fallen Angel in the Hell” (2016) we picked up a new drummer – Nikola Ivanov (Blackie). On 27th April 2017 we’ve released the official video for the song “Fallen Angel in the Hell”. The video was filmed above the Cave called God’s Eyes – directed again by Peter Tomov. In the end of August 2017 we’ve started to record the songs for our full length album. The album will be mixed and mastered by Max Morton at Morton Studio. We have plans to
release the album in the end of March 2018. For the recordings of one of the songs we used a Live Symphonic Orchestra and really hope to bring much more power and symphonic sense in the album with this song. Another interesting fact is me and Max Morton made some incredible duets in some of the songs. We can;t wait to spread this album through the world.
Something I often wonder, with there being so many bands looking for their break and just so many metalheads to appeal to, is if you as a band ever feel stressed that it takes too long to for example release an album after you have built some momentum, that you in this fickle world we live in might miss out on the “hype” your style of metal enjoy at that moment?
Krastyo Jordanov: It is a little stressful because we don’t want to dissapoint our fans. For an underground band the “hype” is really important, but the most important thing for us is to give our fans a high quality album.
Today we have all these different sub-genres in metal that are too many to even mention. How important is to you that you can be tagged in one of these? Why isn’t metal enough as a tag?
Krastyo Jordanov: For us it’s not so important to be tagged in a specific subgenre. Our goal is just to make beautiful music. The variety is also important and that’s why we don’t want to be labeled just as ‘symphonic metal’. We try to be unique in a way.

What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
Stela Atanasova: I believe that some of the biggest labels know for Metalwings already. We’ve managed to draw attention to over 11 million musical fans on YouTube with our song “Crying of the Sun” without any support from labels and promoters. So I think that they should be interested by our band because people from all over the world like our Music and want to hear us live. We bring the world a piece of forgotten beauty.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Stela Atanasova: In the end of March 2018 we have plans to release our full length album called “For all beyond”. In this album we’ll present 9 masterly composed songs, including one acoustic song in Bulgarian language. The album will also include the song Fallen Angel in the Hell as a bonus track in a new arrangement; Fallen Angel in the Hell (Instrumental version) and For All Beyond (Instrumental version). The male vocals parts in the album For All Beyond will be performed by Max Morton. The album will be mixed and mastered by Max Morton at Morton Studio.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
Nikola Ivanov (Blackie): A metalhead should have our album because our songs combine lots of the elements of symphonic metal music and not only. Every our song is so different and unique and gives to your senses all the aspects of Music that you need to hear.

Stela Atanasova: First of all, a perfect song has to combine lots of structural elements. It has to use beautiful vocal lines, complex harmony structure, unusual chords sequence, mystic lyrics, lots of backing vocals, different parts with tempo changes and changes in measures, interesting guitar riffs and complex drums. The perfect song to me is the one which makes you cry and laugh at the same time – it has to touch your heart and fill your sensitivity with all the desirable aspects of the human soul.

Какво е посланието, което искате да носи музиката ви – определено присъствието на такива инструменти в нея я прави по-дълбока?
Музиката е езикът на времето. Една красива песен остава завинаги. Искаме музиката ни да кара хората да се чувстват щастливи и значими. Да се борят за мечтите си. Посланието се определя от всеки един човек, чието сърце бива докоснато от музиката ни. Щом сме успели да спечелим сърцето на този човек, това означава, че музиката ни има време.
