Chaoseum (w/ Valery Veings) [Musician Interview]


Who inspired you to make music?

When I was 14-15 years old, I discovered Iron Maiden. I saw their “Live After Death” on TV almost each night. I wanted to play this music, mostly the guitar solos.

What is your creative process like? Do you start with lyrics? Instruments? Concept?

Often Loïc starts to write the main part of the song and CK adds his vocals. But sometimes we already have the lyrics and create the music around it.

What do you feel is the best song you have released/written and why?

First Step To Hell. This song had a good verse and a melodic chorus. I have a lot of fun playing it.

What is the best advice you’ve been given?

Live your dreams!

If you could be any kind of cookie, what would it be and why? (Most important question)

A cheesecake, because I hate it and I don’t want to eat it.

How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?

Of course, today is really different. It’s harder to sell our music but we also use the internet for promotional stuff. I also discover some really good bands on the internet.

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

Promote real music with real musicians.

What is the most useless talent you have?

I understand mathematics which is not useful to me in music. I preferred to be good at languages.

When you’re done with music, what do you want people to think when they talk about you and your work?

That this music was good and played with real musicians. I saw them on live and I keep good memories.

What is your most recent project/upcoming project?

Our new Chaoseum’s album called “Second Life” was out in September. You can check it almost everywhere on the internet.
