Aftermoon announces European tour

Ukraine’s Aftermoon announces their tour over Eastern Europe. Check the dates below.

About Aftermoon live shows: Our shows are always different as well as our songs. AFTERMOON concert program can be very sensual and calm and can consist our lyrical songs, acoustic versions of AFTERMOON`s tracks and even covers-versions of the greatest hits. On the contrary, it can be a heavy-metal show, where clean vocals changes to extreme techniques, gentle piano sound transforms into aggressive and hard synths. However, usually it all comes together into a wild vortex of emotions, music, feelings and drive.

Dystersol new lyric video and inks record deal with WorhHoleDeath records

Austrial metallers from Dystersol inked deal with WormHoleDeath records and are ready to release their new album The Fifth Age Of Man, set to be out on May 4th.

Band stated: It’s been one and a half years now since we got in touch with the record label WormHoleDeath and decided to do an album together. Since then, a lot has happened! It was a time full of unique experiences, exciting challenges and lots of hard work. Being part of the WHD family did not only give us access to a professional network of Europe’s most passionate people in metal business, but also helped us to focus on the music during this time. Especially the recording process at RealSoundStudios was a breath-taking experience. With the help of these guys, we managed to create an album which would not even be imaginable without their support and experience. Finally, the professional audio mastering from Nick at New Alliance East in Boston gave our album the final touch. What’s more, WHD had enormous influence on the artworks and designs on “The Fifth Age Of Man”. They provided us with loads of contacts and introduced us to ingenious artists such as Rhett Podersoo from MachineRoom Design and “the lord of the logos” himself, Christophe Szpajdel. From the first lyrics and riffs to the finished album in our hands, it’s been a lot of work, and now we are excited and proud to share it with the world. We are glad to say that we are 100% satisfied with the results and we hope that our fans and friends love this album as much as we do. All in all, we want to thank the WormHoleDeath family for their support during this awesome time, and we hope to be part of this family for a long time.

Interview: Talvienkeli

Below is an interview I had with Laetitia Bertrand (bass player), Camille Borrelly (vocals) and Pierre Cordier (keys) about the French metal band Talvienkeli, where they are talking about the band’s new album entitled as ‘’Hybris’’ and other stuffs about the band.

Hi guys, thank you for taking time to answer the questions of this interview. First of all, introduce Talvienkeli.
Hi Carla! Nice to meet you. Talvienkeli is a french symphonic metal band from Lyon. It was created in 2012 and is now composed of 5 members. We released one EP in 2014 and our first album “Hybris” in 2017 in collaboration with the label WormHoleDeath.

Before releasing a full-lenght album, the band had a frontman and later Camille have joined the band as the new frontwoman. How have been these vocals changes for Talvienkeli?
Actually, Camille was here since the beginning. The frontman has joined us later to add some grunts on “Tormented”. We then tried to give him more vocal lines on the other songs. But in the end, our pathways diverged and Sandre had to quit the band. The band decided to build its identity with female vocals.

You debuted with Hybris this year, also yo have signed a deal with the Italian label WormHoleDeath, first, what is this album about?
“Hybris” is a bouquet of songs dealing with different kind of passions which can often lead to madness or deep loss. Each song tells a different story, appart from the 1st and last songs which work together.

Talking a bit about the cover artwork, what this might suggest, making a connection with the album story.
The cover artwork was drawn by our bass player in order to depict this flow of passion streaming out the human brain. It tends to show that a psychological disorder can alter reality. But on the same time, the face of the man drawn on the cover is calm and peaceful because this flow of passion can be full of colours and shades, what is beautiful, don’t you think ?

”Atlas” was the first song online as a preview of the album, what feedback have you gotten both for the song and the whole album from the fans, zines…?
We got really good feedbacks out of this video ! And reviews on many webzines proved to be really enthusiastic and helpful.

Listening to the album, I have made a comparation of Camille’s voice being bit similar as Epica’s Simome Simons, just what my ears conceived, he he!
Ha Ha. Thanks! I remember a rehearsal when Camille started to sing some Epica song’s during a break. It was just amazing, she sounded like Simone!

How do you describe the sound of Talvienkeli?
Talvienkeli wants to keep a heavy sound but softened by more lyrical, symphonical elements that help us evade. We like an organic and warm sound which plays with different atmospheres and rythms. There is a contrast between the amplified parts and the breaks with orchestral sounds, like there is in life with the cutting reality and the one we create in our dreams in order to apease the outside world.

What are your next plans, any tour plans for the summer or maybe any ideas shooting a video for a song?
We are currently planning to make a video clip for one song of the album. We are working hard on rehearsing our songs to improve them and on composing (maybe for another album)… For now, we try to concentrate on finding more concerts where to play.

Hope one day to see you all. Thank you again for this interview. Bonne chance! 
Thank you for this interview ! It was really nice talking to you. Hope to see you soon !
