The album coincides with an extensive European tour throughout February and March next year. “All” is the first album to be recorded at Tiersen’s new studio, venue and community centre, The Eskal, built in an abandoned discotheque on the island of Ushant, a small island positioned in the Celtic sea between Brittany and Cornwall, Tiersen’s home for the past 10 years. The album was mixed and co-produced by Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, Erasure, Indochine, …) and continues the themes of environment and a connection to nature first explored on “EUSA”, incorporating recordings from outside of Brittany, such as the redwood forests of California as well as field recordings from Tempelhof airport in Berlin (on “Tempelhof”), plus guest vocalists.

Inkubus Sukkubus – Sabrina–Goddess of the Severn


Sabrina – Goddess of the Severn” is the final part of the Inkubus Sukkubus musical Triptych “Tales of Witchcraft & Wonder” which has seen the release of “Barrow Wake” and “Belas Knap” albums interwoven within the regular Inkubus Sukkubus release Schedule.

A series of “Horror Folk” albums, the Witchcraft & Wonder series have seen the Inkubus Sukkubus explore the acoustic/folk side of their musical universe. The tracks have dealt with rich and at times dark history and folklore of rural Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds.
Sabrina – Goddess of the Severn explores the flip side of the rural idyll, and finds a dark dystopia amongst the rambling fields, hedges and golden Cotswold stone. Central to the album is “Sabrina” the Roman Goddess of the River Severn, a goddess of darkness and light, mercy and cruelty.

As with Lilith and Bast, Sabrina has been a major influence upon Inkubus Sukkubus since before their formation in 1989.
Now on the eve of their third decade the Inkubus Sukkubus are still increasing in momentum as the wheel of fate, ever moving forward.

Mechatronic unveil video for the song ‘A Life Pretending’ taken from their album ‘Still Life’

The video was shot in Gothenburg in rather cold weather so it seems: “We started filming the “live clip”, showing in the movie theater, dressed in summer clothes. We swept us in warm blankets between the takes, but were still ice cold after a while, and Emma in her sleeveless dress could hardly play on the keyboard with her stiff fingers. On film we looked all red nosed and frozen, with bright red fingers to white keys, but that freezing feeling was nicely removed afterward in the color setting. The robot suit wasn’t much warmer, and since the robot scenes were recorded later in the evening the temperature had dropped even further. Emma was at first a bit nervous about acting on camera, but with the professional coaching by an experienced director it was no problem when the time came. It was a good thing she could feel comfortable in the situation since the robot suit attracted both eyes and comments. Especially at McDonalds where we […]
