Ada: Just recently we have released our fifth studio album "Recreatio
Carminis", so right now we're excited about all the feedback from
magazines, fans, etc.
2.How would you describe the musical sound of the new album and also how
does it differ from previous efforts?
Ada:On this album we wanted to go back to our roots. That's why we chose the
album title, which means "recreation of the song". So we focused on
catchy melodies and strong hooklines, rather than on technical aspects.
Recreatio Carminis is most likely comparable with our first two albums.
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the new release explores?
4.I know that the band name means Crowned in German, what was the
decision behind using it as a band name?
5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and
how would you describe your stage performance?
Ada: I think we've had our best shows on tour with Haggard in spring 2011.
It was the first time that me (Ada) and Mareike performed on stage
together. It was like an explosion and we and the crowd had lots of fun.
6.Do you have any touring plans for the new album?
Ada: We'd like to play tours of course and festivals. But right now there are
no specific plans yet.
7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans
of gothic metal?
8.Are there any other musical projects besides this band?
Ada: Some of our members play in other bands or have musical projects
besides Coronatus. But we don't have another project all together.
9.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
10. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your
music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Ada: I can only speak for me and what influenced my musical style. The most
important band for me was Evanescence, introducing me to the gothic
scene. Nowadays I listen to all kinds of metal and hardrock.
11.Outside of music what are some of your interests?
Ada: As we all have a fulltime job, there's not too much time for interests
that do not concern music. I can say for me there's really no other
interest but making or writing music.
12.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
Ada: Thanks for having this interview with us and enjoy our new album!
