‘Click Interview’ with Individual Totem: ‘How Horrible Would It Be To Be Labeled As ‘Dumb Music?’

Bernd Madl and Mathias Knopp set up Individual Totem during the late 80s. The duo gained some recognition when releasing their music on Off Beat. They next signed to the Canadian label Artoffact. Mathias Knopp left the band in 2010 and got replaced by Jürgen Mossgraber. After a hiatus of five years they now released the album “Electrostatic”, which appears to me as their most accomplished work to date. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: Individual Totem is already active since the late 80s and has never released new work at regular basis, but I get the impression each new album stands a bit for a new start and a new sonic adventure. So the hiatus between each production seems to bring you inspiration and creativity, right? What is it all about? Bernd: From my point of view, I love synthesizer and modular stuff. So I check the new products on events like Superbooth and get the inspiration from those instruments themselves. So each album features instruments from the ‘production-years’. A funny thing is, I used my first drum machine Tr-505 on the new album again. So it is all about the machines. Jürgen: We have the great luxury not to […]

‘Click Interview’ with I:Scintilla: ‘We’ve Always Trusted Our Instincts And Followed The Muses’

Hailing from Chicago (USA) and set up in 2003 I:Scintilla progressively became a successful band. Driven by core members Jim Cookas (programming guitar) and Brittany Bindrim (lyrics & vocals) they got signed to the Belgian label Alfa Matrix and never stopped increasing their popularity album after album. I:Scintilla took their time to achieve their newest full length entitled “Swayed”, which is their first album since 2010. I’d an interesting chat with Brittany Bindrim. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: “Swayed” is your first new album in 8 years. It seems you needed a break to recharge your creativity while the political climate in your country has been a source of inspiration to work on new material. Can you give us more details about it all? Brittany: We did feel the need for a break from I:Scintilla towards the end of 2013, but we never stopped writing. As new musical ideas started flowing out, we strongly considered the idea of starting a new band. It wasn’t until 2017 that we decided to release the songs as I:Scintilla. We’re thankful we went through that bit of uncertainty, since we’re very happy with the record and where the band at is today. Even […]

Darkwave artist Panic Priest releases new video ‘Die Divine’ – watch it here

Post-Punk/Darkwave artist Panic Priest has released the video for his new single “Die Divine”, the latest single off the self-titled album which was released earlier this year on Negative Gain Productions. Vocalist/Multi-Instrumentalist/Composer Jack Armondo (of dark pop outfit My Gold Mask) explains the meaning behind Die Divine: “Die Divine is a song about choice and seduction. It’s about weighing one’s internal desires against their better nature and making self destructive decisions in a very conscious manner. It is also a bit romantic, like people who are fated together in this turbulent situation. I think the video treatment as directed by David Gall captures the songs themes of choice, struggle and release perfectly, while adding his own layer of interpretation to my lyrics.” The video for Die Divine can be seen below. For those interested to see the band live, there are 2 dates confirmed so far: Dec 26th Detroit, MI at Small’s Bar withTwin Tribes and Jan 19th 2019 Chicago, IL at Sleeping Village with Negative Gemini and FEE LION (TNK Fest). Panic Priestʼs debut was released in May of 2018 and was mixed and recorded in part by Adam Stillson of the electronic/shoegaze project New Canyons. The album also […]
