Dream Vision Interview

mardi 19 avril 2022 à 02:25

 


1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the solo project?


Dream Vision is new project started January 2022, founded by Jan Oblak (Zorya) while I was thinking how to put together electronic and extreme metal genre. After few days I discovered almost new genre Blackwave and Blackgaze, which is popular more than 10 years. 


2.You have a full length coming out in May, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical style that you went for on the recording?


My style is something unique, I am representing Blackwave, which is almost new genre, maybe you heard for some similar bands as Abstract void… But still music is more Blackgaze, post-rock with all melodies that make music softer and easier for listening. I think that the best way is to listen my music and you will see ;).


3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you have explored so far with the music?


All lyrical topics and subjects are mostly talking about psychological and depression.


4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Dream Vision'?..



Dream Vision is psychological thing and mean, ' When we sleep, we sometimes dreaming about something real and we can remember that. It was really important in Medieval times.


5.Can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork that is presented on the new album cover?


Artwork is representing dark side of dreams, We can dream, but we don't know if we will see that one day. So 'cause of that I use Old Chinese  building, because I am always dreaming about this culture.


6.With this project you record everything by yourself are you open to working with other musicians or do you prefer to work solo?


I was recording this album by myself, cause I was practicing recording, I am studying audio engineering.

I really like working with other musicians, but now I needed more time for myself and programs, cause I was confused sometimes how everything will work. And It was easier to work…. 


7.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?


Yes it's true I am unsigned and I am looking for label, who will help mw to release album on CD's and vinyl.


8.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of blackgaze and post black metal?

Ohh.. I don't know cause album wasn't released yet, but I think if people will help me with promotion, this album can be really good reacted, it's hard to find album with mixed genres.



9.Where do you see yourself heading into as a musician during the future?


I can see myself heading into a successful and world-recognized musician. I want as many people as possible to listen to my music and enjoy it. I also plan to release new albums. And show people that metalheads can mix all genres together!



10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?


My music interests were always the same metal and 90's elecro music. But sometimes it's good to listen some classic or shlager music. But all I can say every music inspire me. It's doesn't matter what is. Important is that music is made by heart.


11.What are some of your non musical interests?


Oh I really like to help on small farm where can I feed animals and helping parents to work around the house. All I need is fresh mountains air, cause in Slovenia we have really beautiful landscape and mountains…


12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Yes thanks you.. to be part of your webzine and to all readers who supports all music pages.

People If we have music we will be happy, if government shut down music we will die! This is my moto for you!

Vanagandr/Lycanthropic Black Metal/Inferna Profundus Records/2022 Full Length Review

mardi 19 avril 2022 à 02:15

 


  Vanagandr  are  a  duo  form  Chile  that  plays  a  very  raw  and  old  school  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2022  album  "Lycanthropic  Black  Metal"  which  will  be  released  in  July  by  Inferna  Profundus  Records.


  The  sounds  of  wolves  and  clean  playing  start  off  the  album  before  introducing  tortured  yet  high  pitched  sounding  black  metal  screams  onto  the  recording  which  also  takes  the  music  into  a  heavier  direction.  The  faster  sections  of  the  songs  also  add  in  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  which  also  gives  the  music  more  of  a  raw  feeling.


  Most  of  the  album  is  also  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  90's  second  wave  tradition  while  the  songs  also  add  in  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.  All  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  along  with  some  melodies  also  being  added  into  some  of  the  guitar  riffing,  when  guitar  leads  are  finally  utilized  they  are  also  done  in  a  very  dark  yet  melodic  style.


 Vanagandr  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  is  very  raw  and  old  school  in  the  90's  second  wave  tradition.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  Lycanthropy,  Werewolves,  Fullmoon's  and  Witchcraft  themes.   


  In  my  opinion  Vanagandr  are  a  very  great  sounding  raw  and  old  school  black  metal  duo  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Lycanthropic  Black  Metal"  "Hymn  To  The  Black  Wolf"  and  "Fullmoon  Witchcraft".  8  out  of  10.

  Dallas,  Texas's  solo  project  Gonemage  has  returned  with  a  new  recording  which  shows  the  music  going  for  an  experimental  mixture  of  war,  dissonant  black,  death  metal  and  chiptune  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  self  released  2022  ep  "Master  Of  Disgust"  which  will  be  released  in  May.


  Spoken  word  parts  start  off  the  ep  before  adding  in  some  Nintendo  music  samples  and  heavier  riffing.  When  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  war  metal  elements,  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  can  be  heard  which  also  gives  the  songs  more  of  a  raw  feeling  and  the  vocals  are  a  mixture  of  bestial  growls  and  black  metal  screams.


  Dissonant  structures  can  also  be  heard  in  some  of  the  riffing  while  the  riffs  also  add  in  a  decent  amount  of  melody.  Throughout  the  recording  you  can  also  hear  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  along  with  the  music  also  having  its  experimental  moments  and  the  songs  also  mix  in  a  good  amount  of  synths,  all  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.


  On  this  recording  Gonemage  takes  war  and  bestial  black/death  metal  and  mixes  it  with  experimental  and  chiptune  music  to  create  something  very  different  from  his  previous  releases.  The  production  sounds  very  raw  and  heavy  while  the  lyrics  are  a  concept  album  based  upon  the  Nintendo  character  Wario.

Simulacre/Archvile King/Les Acteurs de L'Ombre Productions/2022 Split Album Review

lundi 18 avril 2022 à 01:00

 




  This  is  a  review  of  a  split  album  between  France's  Simulacre  and  Archvile  King  which  was  released  by  Les  Acteurs  de  L'Ombre  Productions  and  we  will  start  off  the  review  with  Simulacre  a  band  that  plays  a  progressive  mixture  of  black  and  death  metal.


  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  some  clean  playing  before  going  into  a  very  fast  and  raw  musical  direction  which  also  utilizes  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats.  Melodies  are  also  added  into  some  of  the  guitar  riffing  while  all  of  the  musical  instruments  on  their  side  of  the  recording  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.


  Vocals are  a  mixture  of  black  metal  screams  and  death  metal  along  with  the  songs  also  adding  in  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.  At  times  the  music  also  gets  very  progressive  sounding  as  well  as  adding  in  a  brief  us e of  spoken  word  parts,  when  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  also  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  and  clear  chants  are  also  added  on  the  closing  track.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  French  and  cover  philosophical  and  metaphysical  themes.


  In  my  opinion  Simulacre  are  a  very  great  sounding  progressive  mixture  of  black  and  death  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Tribus"  "Myste".


  Next  up  is  Archvile  King  a  solo  project  that  was  recently  featured  in  this  zine  and  on  this  recording  plays  a  mixture  of  black  and  thrash  metal.


  His  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  some  melodic  riffing  and  elements  of  thrash  metal  while  all  of  the  musical  instruments  on  his  side  of  the  recording  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.  When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  also  add  in  a  great  amount  of  melody  and  the  vocals  are  mostly  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams.


  The  music  also  adds  in  influences  all  the  way  from  the  90's  to  the  modern  era  along  with  some  back  up  shouts  also  being  added  in  at  times.  When  tremolo  picking  is  utilized  they  also  give  the  songs  more  of  a  raw  feeling  as  well  as  the  faster  sections  of  the  tracks  also  adding  in  some  blast  beats  and  throughout  his  side  of  the  recording  you  can  also  hear  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts,  acoustic  guitars  and  growls  can  also  be  heard  briefly.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  historical  themes.


  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Archvile  King  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  black  and  thrash  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  side  of  the  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "The  Bastards  Of  The  Sea"  and  "The  Feast  of  The  Worm  King".  8  out  of  10.
