Ivan “Paranoid”

vocals, lyrics

  1. How long have you been playing music?

At this moment about 12 years.

  1. How did it start?

I started listening to good music passively when I was 5, so it was only a matter of time for me to pick up a guitar and start to learn to do something.But I picked up a bass, and, well, here I am now.

  1. What inspires you to play music?

Love to music, and all my feeling and emotions that I am not able to express in any other way.

  1. What music do you prefer (bands, genres)?

From Neil Young to Nile, everything that’s good and that manages to bring out an emotional response. However, no Death Metal can be as grim and hopeless as some country music from the depths of American back-country, like 16 Horsepower.

  1. Who would you dream to play on the same stage with?

With anyone of those great people and bands whose music can make me forget there’s anything else in the world but here and now.

  1. What does Vistery mean for you?

An opportunity of rocking out alongside to some great people and lose the constrains of the daily grind on the stage.

  1. Favorite Vistery song?

Purging the Degradation

  1. What gear do you use?

Mouth, lungs, false vocal cords, allmadeinBelarus.

  1. Any hobbies besides music?

Board and video games, books, movies, TV series.

  1. Favorite movie?

Evil Dead 2.

  1. Favorite food?

Pirozhki and cheese.

  1. Favorite drink?

Quality tea from China.

  1. What’s your dream in life?

Not to have any regrets.

  1. Are you afraid of death?

Sure I do, there’s too much to do in this world.

  1. What would you like to say to Vistery fans?

I want to say something truly inspiring, but I won’t do that. Oh no. No, I won’t do that.
