(KevinP brings us another installment in his ongoing series of short interviews, talking this time with drummer Sergio Ponti of and Dordeduh and Sunset In the 12th House, whose debut album was released earlier this month.)
K: With everyone else in the band from/living in Romania, how did you hook up with them?
S: In the spring of 2007 I was on tour with Ephel Duath. We played about 12 gigs in the UK with Negura Bunget opening all of those gigs for us. We didn’t get to share too much time together back then, but we remained in contact. They invited me to Timisoara, Romania, in the fall of 2009.
I was initially asked to be part of Dordeduh, but scheduling conflicts on my side made it impossible. I did record the drums for the debut EP Valea Omului though. We started collaborating soon after on Sunset in the 12th House around 2011. Then in 2013, I was asked again to be in Dordeduh and circumstances made it possible for me to join full time.
