Interview with Marcello Lega, the guitar player of Sondag

Emmy's recent chat with Marcello.

Emmy: How did the name come about?

Marcello: I must admit that I am very infatuated with Scandinavian languages, and therefore I took a cue from the Danish vocabulary for the band name: Søndag (Sunday).

The reference to the day of the week wants to create a parallel between the day of the

week when the plug is disconnected from everyday life, and our music, which (we hope)

in its own way disconnects from the routine of the music we are used to listen.

Emmy: How would you describe your genre to someone who isn't familiar with your music?

Marcello: Sondag is a weird mix between 90’s grunge and groovy Nu-metal.

We try to be heavy but at the same time to maintain some melodic feel to our music.

Emmy: How did the band form?

Marcello: We started Søndag back in 2014, after breaking up our previous band “Edema”.

Edema was an extreme metal band formed by 3⁄4 of the current Søndag line up, after

many years of activity we decided to close the project and open the Søndag chapter.

With Søndag we wanted to create a unique sound lead by a “low-tuned” string section (8

strings, bass VI guitars), shifting the extreme metal sound to a more rock one compared

to Edema.

With almost 6 years of activity now, we released 2 Full lengths, 1 Ep and 3 singles,

promoting them with many European tours.

Emmy: What are some of the artists that influence you?

Marcello: Without hesitation I’d say: Nine inch nails, Bring me the horizon and Deftones!

Emmy: If you could tour with any artist or band (still active or not) who would it be?

Marcello: We’d really love to open a big tour travelling all around the world, that’s kinda our most memorable dream since we begun the band.

Which tour? Well, supporting BMTH would be awesome right now..

Emmy: What's your favorite show you've played? Marcello: The one that loved above all, was a small gig on our first tour for the promotion of “Bright things”.

A small gig in a place called “blaues haus” in Singen (Germany). The place wasn’t fully packed, but the guys in the crowd were so crazy that night.. we had definitely some good time there!

Emmy: What's the future hold for the band?

Marcello: We really hope that things will return to a sort of normalcy after this terrible pandemic which has literally shattered the live music industry in 1000 pieces.

We’ll still releasing new music on a regular basis, but there’s nothing we miss the most

as touring around. Finger crossed about that!

Thanks a lot for the interview guys!
