Today, we sat down with Ivan from the band Stealth to talk music inspiration, heroes and much more!
What is your inspiration to write your music? Is it your
IVAN: Surroundings are just a part of it. The music I compose comes from inside. It’s difficult to explain but sometimes I need to write music. I don’t know why and where it comes from but I do it.
What type of music did you listen to growing up?
IVAN: I grew up listening to mainly metal, from thrash old school to classic power style, to industrial, nu metal and death. My prefers are Iron Maiden and Metallica (both until early 90s) Pantera, Sepultura, Fear Factory and Machine Head. Surely all the guitarists in these bands inspired me to become a guitarist my self.
Is there someone you looked up as a hero?
IVAN: Freddy Mercury and Cliff Burton over all.
If you weren’t a musician, would you be doing it today?
IVAN: Yes of course. I can’t imagine my daily life without music.
What advice do you have for our fans out there that want to create
IVAN: Keep your dream alive for a long time
