I managed to contact Dimi DP Pavlovskiy and interviewed him about Grotesque Orchestra where he is a guitarist. Since the founder of Grotesque Orchestra, Гrotesk is busy with traveling around the world he has taken all responsibility to answer to all the requests and questions.
1. What are your future plans for Grotesque Orchestra at the moment, will there be music videos and maybe more albums.-Hi. We do not have any plans for the near future, as the founder and head of the band Гrotesk is busy in engineering, parallel to traveling around the world; I have many worries with other musical projects like 'Korzo' or 'MOR'.But, of course, we want to make another album with an orchestra, and have a lot of new ideas/riffs, so it's possible to makea tour, but it is difficult to say when this will happen. So, only time will tell!
2.Are you planning on any tour or other live performances at the moment? And if you are planning on live shows would you like to tell some of your plans regarding them.-We got a lot of positive feedback and requests to start a concert activity after the release of the 'Delusions Of Grandeur' album, but as the album was done for a very long time, and on the way it is constantly creating obstacles we decided to take a break from Grotesque Orchestra, having been engaged in other projects and things.There is a desire to make a tour in future (after another album, of course), with a chamber orchestra, might put the whole show with a screen on the stage with a story behind the music, as the Гrotesk is also an animator.
3. Will there be physical albums besides digital downloads of your songs, and if so, where they will be sold? -СD-version of 'Delusions of Grandeur' available on our Bandcamp page, so check it out: https://grotesqueorchestra.bandcamp.com/
4. Would you like to tell about your other past, current or future projects besides Grotesque Orchestra.-In addition to the main project, Гrotesk is a painter, but also he deals with engineering, as well as 3D animation.-I participating in a lot of musical projects, such as Majesty Of Revival (progressive metal), Bloody Terror (Black/Death Metal), Korzo (ambient/sludge/post metal), and more... Also, I'm a studio owner.-Nortti sings in his band Vintergata (Symphonic Black Metal).

I hope others besides me will find this marvelous band and equally like their music and visual material as much as I do.
For what it's worth I also had the pleasure of introducing myself to some of the other material these truly talented gentleman's have done in their other bands and I can just say that I liked what I heard. So if you find the time I recommend checking them out as well.
