Cereus on Progstravaganza progressive rock & metal compilation

Progstravaganza Questionnaire: Cereus

Cereus, formed in 2012, defines its music as post-progress (Post-prog.) It is the outcome of inspiration coming from post rock music as well as post metal, with the elements of alternative and progressive climate (Caspian, ISIS, Russian Circles, Marillion). A self-contained whole forms charismatic vocal which by means of interesting timbre and melody creates in every track new different stories.

Domber answered our standard questionnaire.

How did you come to do what you do?

With love and passion for music, everything is possible…

What is your first musical memory?

Rolling Stones vinyl cover with lips and tongue…

Where do you draw your inspiration from?

Little bit from inside, little bit from outside… Music is in our heads and hearts, but the world around us gives us plenty of inspirations…

What message does the song on our Progstravaganza compilation carry?

Cassiopeia is about trying… to reach the impossible, to bring back what is lost, so even more precious… it’s about will to fight the limits and about faith, that there is something more, than what we get and see right here…

Do you tend to follow any pre-defined patterns when composing a piece?

Not so much… but You can’t escape from that. I don’t even thing we should…

What is your method of songwriting?

First sounds comes from Pablo(guitar) or Conrado(bass), they create the idea, than we meet all together and work out on full concept… the last part is lyrics, but I usually know from the very beginning what it will be about…

How do you see your music evolving?

Too early to say, it’s two years since we’ve met, so everything is in front of us… That would be our first Album this year, so when we’ll make second, I will gladly answer that question… ;)

What advice would you give to other musicians, trying to make inspired music and get it out in the world?

Do what You love, and never think about creating for applause… The creator is an egoist. First of all, You have to like and accept what You do, than applause will find You…

What are you looking forward to?

To play concert with biger bands on the biggest scenes of the world.
