MSFinland‘s Kostya Aronberg had a chance to interview the founder Alexander Lataev of V.A.-R.G. project from Russia, please see the conversation below.
1. Hey Alex, welcome to Metal Shock Finland Magazine! How are and what are you doing right now?
Hi there, Metal Shock Finland Magazine! I’m fine, we’re preparing a new compilation by V.A-R.G project and GlobMetal Promotion with 13 bands from Israel. Our further plans are to continue similar series of compilations and some new projects as well.
2. V.A.-R.G. Project (Various Artists – Russian Group), was found in 2010, and since then the project has released 26 compilation CD’s all over Russia, and got more than 10000 news subscribes from Russia. Tell us about the idea of forming this project, and why you decided to do this?
The project was founded as an information support for young and novice musicians. Later on we began to work with more famous bands within Russia, e.g. Амели (Ameli), Дрыгва (Drygva), АнДем (AnDem), Alex Sigmer and others. Due to their support, in August 2011 we made a small fest in Smolensk 1-st Alternative Club under the aegis of V.A-R.G project.
