Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Roman Nemtsev: - We are Instorm from Russia. The band was founded by me and Marina Nemtseva. We always wanted to play our own songs on stage so we started to write material and after that we decided to set line-up. We found Alexander Petrov bass player, and after a while we found Antvik he took the place of drummer. We have released our first album Madness Inside in 2013. Then we parted ways with Antvik and for now this is just three of us – Roman Nemtsev – guitar, vocal, Marina Nemtseva - guitar, Alexander Petrov - bass.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
Marina Nemtseva: - I think it’s crossover. Music can be labeled as power-metal, speed-metal, and vocals as death metal. Most of all classical music influences us. Composers such as Vivaldi, Mozart, Bach, Paganini. From metal world – Yngwie Malmsteen, early Children of Bodom, Hypocrisy, Iron Maiden.
