The Void Inn band were formed in California, but based in Serbia, lead by Jelena Vojanovich, has recently hosted a kickass show in S8 Underground Club at Stadionok, Budapest, Hungary.
The place itself is a live music venue with two stages and two dressing rooms for the performers. One night at the foam halls, concerts take place on both stages. One stage is in the bigger hall, coupled with the bar counter.
The other stage is in a small room.
At the bar, drinks are available at affordable prices, so you can be consumed at a fair price.
At this evening, where I was attending, was accompanied by several bands.
In addition to the Void Inn, the Hungarian Karmanora band started to warm up the atmosphere. They play souldiving rock and now have their 504 titled EP recently released.
They were followed the Hungarian Lucy band. The guys play hard rock, which I can best compare to Green Day.
As the show slipped, the highlight of the night, the Void Inn band, was delayed a bit. They play dark hard rock and alternative metal. We had a familiar atmosphere, so we felt very great.
At the addition song, a member of Lucy was called together to perform a song that put the foam on the cake.
That evening even it turned out that Jelena is a very nice, direct girl. After the interview, which you can read below, she were invited me to talk and then played table football.
On the spot there are regular concerts almost every evening so you should pay attention to their Facebook page and their website, where all events are posted.
But now it’s the time for the interview with Jelena, which I was made with her before the shows.
01. I would like to ask you, tell me a little bit about the band. When and where did you formed? What do we need to know about you and your music?
“We formed in 2010 in Los Angeles, California and now we are recording our second album and we are playing the second time here in Budapest, our style is like hard rock and alternative metal like Metallica and Danzig a little bit.”
02. Why did you decide to move from L.A to Belgrade?
“That’s a really good question. When we’ve been there maybe like 3 years and I have my sister now there so I can able to possibility to go back there, I really like miss it.
Belgrade is a beautiful place for music also it’s amazing you know, lot of bands, lot of just in a one day you have you can see like hundred shows now it is amazing. But then we can back like person, because there are our families you know and that but yeah I mean go back and tell me once. Right now I think it’s really good ’cause like here we want focus in Europe you know so formerely beacuse of that.”
03. What should we know about the first album?
“We’d like to recorded 6 songs so that was also like that so I Can Hope the first album, and then the second album is gonna be also like 6 songs. We like to do it. We can promote it a little bit better. It’s easier to promote 6 songs like 10 songs. That album was released last year.”

“That’s a little bit hard question, because I listen to a lot of styles. Let’s be like the bands and the idols ok, maybe like Alice in Chains, Sound Garden, Type O Negative, Black Label Society. My favorite vocalist is Geoff Tate from Queensryche. He is amazing.”
05. How much will the new album change?
“You know what, it’s a little bit harder, you know, stronger. We also changed a member, changed the drummer. This drummer is a little bit more you know, has more power has more briaties, so I think from retrospective is gonna be harder and also musically. I think we and also the sound is gonna be.
