Interview Kalidia

An interview I had about Kalidia with the vocalist of the band, Nicoletta, a melodic metal band from Italy.


Hello to you Nicoletta and thank you for your time answering this interview. You’re the vocalist of Kalidia, an Italian Gothic metal band. When the band was founded?
Hi Carla, thank you so much for this interview. Kalidia born in late 2010 by an idea of me and Federico Paolini (guitars); we released a demo-EP called “Dance of the Four Winds” in 2012 and it was well-acclaimed. This result pushed us to compose new material and we released a full album (“Lies’ Device”) in 2014. During these years we shared the stage with many bands/artists like Rhapsody of Fire, DGM, Vision Divine, Timo Tolkki, Edu Falaschi, Kaledon, Silent Voices (feat. Members of Sonata Arctica).

You debuted in 2014 with ”Lies’ Device”. What feedback have you got for this album and how the recordings were going?
After the released of our demo-EP, we decided to do a full length; so we entered the “Eden Studios” and we recorded “Lies’ Device”, produced by Alessio Lucatti (Vision Divine). We recorded that album in a friendly atmosphere and we learned a lot from Alex, it was a totally positive experience. The album was self-released in June 2014 and it received a great feedback, both from fans and webzines; we gained a cool fan-base from all over the world!

Interview Kilmara

Interview Kilmara, melodic metal band from Spain.


Hello Daniel, how are you? Introduce the band and when was it formed?
Cheers Carla! Doing great thanks. Kilmara are: Javi Morillo on drums, Didac Pla on bass, John Portillo and Kike Torres on guitars, and myself (Daniel Ponce) on vocals. The band was formed in the early 2000’s first as Jadde and then changed name to Kilmara.

 You guys are preparing a new album?
That’s right, we are currently working with our brand new line up on the composition of our next album which we will try to record by the end of this year with our friend and producer Roland Grapow.

Latest release of yours is ”Love Songs And Other Nightmares”. Talk about it a few things.
It was released in 2014 via Sony Music, and for the band, it was their second chance recording in Slovakia at Grapow studios with Roland at the helm. Truly an incredible experience! Also it has meant the greatest sales success for the band and from it, came Kilmara’s first ever professional video clip from the song Cold Rain. And also many of the bands live hits are from that album. So a really important record for us indeed…

Irish metal band Words That Burn signed a deal with WormHoleDeath records

Words That Burn from Ireland signed a deal with the Italian WormHoleDeath label.

The band stated that: We are very excited to announce that we have signed a world-wide recording & distribution deal with WormHoleDeath Records/Aural Records for the release of our debut full-length album ‘Regret is for the Dead’ (C & P 2016 Warner Chappell Music Holland BV). We want to thank Carlo Bellotti at WormholeDeath for guiding us through this process to date, for assisting us in refining the overall vision for the album, and for giving the album the attention we feel that it deserves. It is an absolute privilege to become part of the WormHoleDeath label. Based in part on their catalogue of artists and releases to date, as well as their experience and professionalism, we feel that they we have found a partner who is, and will continue to be, as passionate about what we do as we are. We have committed a great deal of time, effort, and in some case heartache, in terms of writing and recording this album over the course of past year or so. Thanks to both Carlo and our producer Jonathan Mazzeo at Mathlab Recording Studio (Pistoia, Italy), the album sounds huge and the songs have turned out even better we could have imagined at the start of the writing process. We had a vision for this album. Carlo and the rest of the WHD team helped us realize it. We are very proud of what we achieved and we are very exciting to share it with everyone in 2016.
