‘Click Interview’ with Wolfhead59: ‘Too Electro For Punk And Too Punk For Electro’

WOLFHEAD59 is the London (UK) based duo Agnes de la Barthe (vocals) and Jay de Vil (music). They this year released their official debut album “We Are Not OK” on the American label D-Trash Records. The album sounds as the imaginary offspring between Ultraviolence and Ambassador 21; harsh, furious, merciless and definitely hardcore! The lyrics are pretty rudimentary and yet behind there’s serious engagement.   (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: Let’s start by asking you how you guys met, what’s your connection with each other and what can you tell us about your musical roots and background? Jay: I played in a Punk band and Agnes was promoting gigs, is basically how we met… At the beginning it was just musical business, but longer we knew each other more we discovered that we have similar interests, passions, visions… Now we are a couple. I got involved in Punk-Rock scene something like 30 years ago or even before… I like extreme noisy music with a message, so naturally Punk, Hardcore or Metal is a match to my taste in music. I also pretty quickly developed interest in underground Electronic music, especially in its radical genres like Digital-Hardcore or Gabber. Agnes: […]

Blutengel singer Chris Pohl and Massive Ego frontman release joined EP ‘Nothing but a Void’

It was written in the stars this would happen some day after Blutengel singer Chris Pohl and Massive Ego frontman Marc Massive went on tour together. The duo has now collaborated on a new single/EP, “Nothing but a Void” to be released on November 13th. Chris: “Marc and me are not only colleagues. On our tour together we realized that we have a lot of interests and views in common. Plus he became one of my favorite singers. So it was just a matter of time to create something together, and the time was just right now.” Marc: “Whilst we’ve all been unable to play live it was cool to be contacted by Chris who suggested we work together as a way to beat the pandemic blues with creativity. And it is this creativity that brings together the punching Future Pop of Massive Ego with the dark romantic of Blutengel – a collaboration on one level unifying the best of two worlds.” Tracks: Nothing but a Void (Original) Nothing but a Void (Alex VRT Remix) Nothing but a Void (Auger Remix) Nothing but a Void (Alternative Version) Nothing but a Void (Omnimar Remix) Nothing but a Void (Rob Dust Remix) […]
