‘Click Interview’ with Rome: ‘I Am Not Letting Anything Out Of My Hands’me

Luxemburg artist Jérôme Reuter, this year celebrates the fifteenth anniversary of his ROME project. The band rapidly gained a name in the neo-folk scene by the early works released on the defunct Cold Meat Industry. Rome next moved to Trisol while the music progressively evolved, touching ground with different music genres. The new album “The Lone Furrow” features numerous guest artists like Alan Averill (Primordial), Adam Nergal Darski (Behemoth/Me And That Man), Laure Le Prunenec (Rïcïnn), Joseph D. Rowland (Pallbearer) and J.J. (Harakiri For TheSky). The work is a critical perception of the world we’re living in and sounds as a sonic osmosis between Dark-Chanson and Neo-Folk with bombastic arrangements on top and multiple guest singers. “The Lone furrow” is one more masterpiece in the impressive discography of the artist. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: More than any other album, “The Lone Furrow” appears to be Jérôme Reuter with guests/friends. What incited you to write this ‘collaborative’ album and did you handle specific criteria to work with those guests? Jérôme: I did not really write it as a collaborative album. That idea came later. I wrote the songs and then I tried to find people to enhance and diversify it […]

Norwegian dark folk / ambient band band Wardruna announces 5th album – first video for non-album track ‘Lyfjaberg’ out now

The Norwegian dark folk / ambient band band Wardruna has released the title track of its upcoming studio album “Kvitravn” (translated: white raven) due out on January 22, 2021. The accompanying video was shot at various locations in Norway and Russia by Ragnarok Film, the same team responsible for the previous video of the non-album track “Lyfjaberg”, which was shot during a lockdown. You can expect dramatic landscapes from a bird’s-eye view as we follow Wardruna founder Einar Selvik and singer Lindy Fay-Hella through the wilderness. Wardruna founder Einar Selvik: “I am very excited to finally be able to share this song. ‘Kvitravn’ is a song that explores the traditions of animal guides and the symbolism and legends of sacred white animals, found in Scandinavian and other world.These highly regarded ghostly creatures – be it a raven, snake, bear, moose, reindeer, elephant, or lion – are seen in animistic traditions as prophetic, divine messengers and protectors representing renewal, purity and a bridge between worlds. Being fully aware of how rare it is to encounter a white raven, we knew from the start that this would be an ambitious and challenging task to perform. However, fate seemed propitiated, and the “impossible” […]

‘Click Interview’ with Talk To Her: ‘”Love Will Come Again” Is Not A Message Of Hope’

TALK TO HER is an Italian formation set up in 2015. Their debut-EP “Home” (2018) directly revealed the potential of the band. Mixing Post-Punk elements with Indie-Rock/Pop they moved on unleashing the debut album “Love Will Come Again”. This album was released earlier this year at Valentine’s day on Shyrec and Icy Cold Records. The songs simply confirmed the writing skills of the band, which gives me the feeling TALK TO HER can become ‘something big’… I asked a few questions to the band members. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: How did you guys met and what can say about personal background, sources of inspiration and what kind of music you wanted to compose when setting up TALK TO HER? TTH: We met because of our love for Post-Punk revival, Indie-Rock and Electro. When the band was formed, in our area only few people listened to these sounds and almost no one played them: we simply started playing together because we could make the music we liked the most. Q: How do you look back at the writing/production process of the debut full length “Love Will come Again”? Did you encounter difficulties and eventually challenges? TTH: The real challenge […]

‘Ambient is such a big umbrella term that people don’t find their way anymore!’ An interview with Psy’Aviah and GNY (aka Gwenny Cooman)

Belgian photographer GNY (aka Gwenny Cooman, also known for her work in the band Mildreda) recently organized an exhibition of her work under the conceptual title “Steden Schuilen Niet Wanneer Het Regent” (Cities don’t seek shelter when it rains) in Wetteren (B). For this project she also collaborated with artist and musician Yves Schelpe of Psy’Aviah who wrote a dark ambient soundtrack inspired by her work that played during the exhibition, reinforcing the atmosphere of the photographs, adding a unique sonic dimension to the exhibition, giving tones of hope and peace, but also of darkness and melancholy highlighting the contrasting sides of city and nature. That soundtrack, “The Earth Keeps Spinning, Without Being Noticed”, is out now on Alfa Matrix as a download album (via Bandcamp) or as streaming via Spotify. Good to know, the Belgian national radio broadcast Klara already took one track, namely “The Escalator”, from the album to be used in a show for which you can see a video below. We had a talk with both artists regarding this special collaboration. SL: You never released an instrumental let alone an ambient album before, how did this one come about? Yves/Psy’Aviah: After my previous, more or less traditional, album […]
