Tonttu/Fahl/P. Emerson Williams/The Decline And Fall Of The Gnomen Empire/Panicmachine/2016 3 Way CD Split Review


  This  is  a  review  of  a  split  album  between  Finland's  Tonttu,  Russia's  Fahl  and  United  Kingdom's  P.   Emerson  Williams  called  "The  Decline  And  Fall  Of  The  Gnomen  Empire"  which  was  released  by  PANICMACHINE  and  we  will  start  off  the  review  with  TONTTU  a  band  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  plays  a  mixture  of  neo-folk,  avant  garde  and  industrial  metal.

  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  militant  folk  music  sounds  along  with  a  touch  of  neo classical  along  with  some  spoken  word  parts  a  few  seconds  later  and  after  awhile  programmed  beats  are  added  onto  the  recording  along  with  some  heavy  yet  melodic  guitar  riffing  and  the  vocals  start  throwing  in  aggressive  screams  and  shouts.

    They  also  mix  the  folk  and  classical  elements  with  metal  and  after  awhile  traces  of  industrial  can  be  heard  along  with  the  first  song  being  very  long  and  epic  in  length and  there  is  also  a  brief  use  of  guitar  leads  and  acoustic  guitars  along  pianos  and  saxophones  are  added  onto  the  second  song, the  production  sounds  very  powerful  while  the  lyrics  cover  anti  gnome  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Tonttu  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  industrial,  neo  folk  and  avant  garde  metal,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of t he  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Gnostradamus  Ja  Tonttuteknologian".

  Next  up  is  Fahl  a  band  that  plays  dark  ambient.

  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  a  very  dark  ambient  soundscape  and  atmospheric  synths  and  after  a  few  seconds  spoken  word  parts  are  added  on  their  side  of  the  recording  which  also  gives  the  music  more  of  a  ritualistic  feeling  before  mixing  them  in  with  whispers  and  the  music  can  also  be  very  avant  garde  and  experimental  at  times  and  some  songs  also  bring  in  a  small  amount  of  demonic  and  gnome  voices,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark and  ocult  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Fahl  are  a  very  great  sounding  experimental,  dark  ambient  project  and  if  you a re  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of  the  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "They  Are  Everywhere.  And  Sneaky"  and  "We  Are  Done  For.  And  They  Have  A  Plan".

  Next  up  is  P.  Emerson  Williams  a  solo  project t hat  plays  experimental  music.

  His  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  hospital  sounds  and  spoken  word  samples  and  after  a  few  seconds  sinister  sounding  synths  are  added  into t he  song  which  is  over  20  minutes  in  length  and  the  song  also  mixes  in  elements  of  avant  garde  classical  and  psychedelic  music  and  after  awhile the  sounds  of  gnomes  make  their  presence  known  in the  track  along  with  some  acoustic  guitars,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and r aw  while  the  lyrics  mix  anti  gnome  philosophy  with the  Goetia  and  writings  of  Colin  DePlancy.

  In  my  opinion  P.  Emerson  Williams  is  a very  great  sounding  experimental  solo  artist  and  i9f  you a re  a  fan  of  this  musical genre,  you  should  check  out  his  side  of  the  split.

  In  conclusion  i  feel  this  is  a  very  great  sounding  split  and  would  recommend  it  to  all  fans  of  avant  garde,  experimental,  dark  ambient  and  metal.  8  out  of  10.

  This  is  a  review  of  another  reading  from  H.P  Lovecraft  with  his  story  'The  Lurking  Fear"  being  read t his  time  with  the  story  being  read  by  Andrew  Lemen  and   the  musical  soundtrack  being  done  by Theologian  which  adds  an  ambient/industrial  style  to t he  story  and  the  album  will  be  released  in  July  on  vinyl  by Cadabra  Records.

  Ambient  sounds  and  spoken  word  parts  starts  off  the  album  and  the  music  in  the  background  makes  the  story  sound  more  haunting  and  the  narrator  has  a  feeling  of  fear  in  his  voice  the  way  he  explains  the  story  and  he  explains  the  history  of  the  haunted  town  that  he  is  in  and  a  lot  of  people  in the  town  seem  like  they  live  in  poverty.

  After  awhile  the  townspeople  start  talking  about  the  demons  that  surround  their  environment  and  the  story  also  brings  in  a  gothic  horror  atmosphere  and  the  story  gets  more  gory  as  the  album  progresses  and  when  thunder  is  added  onto t he  recording  the  story  starts  getting  even  more  haunting  and  starts  bringing  in  more  of  an  occult  theme  once  the  demon  starts  making  his  presence  known  and  the  story  always  remains  true  to  a  very  dark  and  terrifying  concept.

  Andrew  Leman  brings  in  a  very  haunting  narrative  to t he  Lovecraft  story  while  the  music  in  the  background  from  Theologian  and  the  background  with  their  ambient/industrial style  gives  the  story  more  of  an  avant  garde  atmosphere.      

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  narrative  of t he  H.P  Lovecraft  story  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  author  and  ambient/industrial,  yuo  should  check  out  this  album.  8  out  of  10.

  The  only  song  that  is  presented  on  the  recording  is  almost  40  minutes  in  length  and  spoken  word  parts  along  with  drones  can  also  be  heard  at  times  along  with  the  music  mixing  in  elements  of  post  rock  and  avant  garde  music  and  there  is  also  a  brief  use  of  violins  and  nature  sounds  can  also  be  heard  at  times.

Postcards From Arkham Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and release of the new album?

Just a few weeks before the release, we started doing live shows to support AEON5 album and the first one was at BRUTAL ASSAULT, one of the biggest festivals here in the Czech Republic. Then we continued with our DREAMSCAPES tour. Now, we are preparing the European tour – so stay tuned for more information.
I also started composing some new material for upcoming third album and I’m still working on the visual presentation of the current album

2.Recently you have released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

The whole production as well as process were bigger than in OCEANIZE era. I was working on it for almost two years and I wanted to push my limits to the edges. The album was recorded in the new studio and published by a new label. Everything went better than I had expected.
I wanted a dynamic and atmospheric sound, similar to movie soundtracks and I can say that I am pretty satisfied with it. Hope that you are as well …

3.The last album was released on Metal Gate, are you still signed to this label?

Yes. The whole cooperation was without problems on both sides, so there’s no reason to change. We are planning some new stuff in the future where I want Metalgate to be involved in again. They support my art and I have always appreciated people like them...

4.The band name and a lot of the lyrics come from the writings of H.P Lovecraft, do you have any interest in other authors that write in the same genre?

I am inspired by many classical writers: E.A.Poe, A.C.Doyle, S. King and also H.P.Lovecraft . His art is very special for me, it opens my fantasy and creativity.
But I don’t want to be fixed on this writer or on anyone else. It’s very important for me to have my own space for my own ideas and thoughts.
Not only writers are my inspiration, there are also movies, drawings, sceneries ...

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

As I mentioned at the beginning, BRUTAL ASSAULT was one of the first shows in current band line-up and it was really memorable. It is not easy to play this atmospheric music live, but every gig is kind of magic ritual and I always enjoy the whole show.
We always do our best to be natural and “human” on stage without any cliche or theatrical poses. Every gig is original.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?

There are plans for European tour after the success of Dreamscapes tour here in Czech Republic. So if there is any promoter that is interested just let me know.
Doing live shows is very important for every band and it is one of the main reasons why do I have a band, so I want to play as much as I can.


7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of post rock and metal?

I am quite surprised that everyone loves the new record, despite its complicated genre.
It proves that people are really open minded and the feedback from around the world is amazing! I appreciate every single fan and it doesn’t matter from where they are or what kind of music they usually listen to.

8.Are any of the other band members involved with any other bands or musical projects?

Whole band contains musicians from other bands - which is good for creativity. Even I have second melodic death black metal band called AWRIZIS . It is my second side of creativity, more aggressive and energetic stuff . Check this out if you like bands like In Flames or Gojira

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

I like experiments in music and pushing the borders to the other genres. I don't want to make similar albums. Next album will be definitely different but I don't have specific vision of sound or compositions. Everything must be natural. There is some new stuff already written and I am really looking forward to dive into the new writing process.
The gap between the first and the second album was almost three years and it is a long time. There are some  plans for acoustic arranges of already written songs - I am really looking  forward to it.

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

I have to say that my playlist is full of different music. From movie soundtracks, across grind core or EBM, to black metal and post rock…

One of my most favorite artist since two years has been TYCHO . Their music is visionary and very inspiring.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?

PFA are kind of multi-medial project because I am involved in audio -video presentation of the band and graphic presentation as well.
I am interested in every aspect of music production from graphic artworks to music videos. Everything is somehow connected with music, even if I go for a walk I listen to music … when I am thinking about it, there are no non musical interests for me :-D

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

Thank you very much for your support , keep it up. Be creative and always open minded - that is the only way to be free!

Ceremonia Interview

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


We are Ceremonia, a Colombian-French quartet of Extreme Metal based in Paris since 2011. Actually we are promoting our self-produced debut album called "La Existencia Humana Debe Ser Un Error".


2. Last year the band released their first album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?


Is really hard to describe our musical sound but the main idea of the songs was to create a dark and melancholic sound to explore the deepest, sad, negative and morbid feelings of the human.


3. The band has been around since 2011 but waited until 2015, can you tell us a little bit more about the first 4 years?


Basically the first three years were pretty hard because we had a multiple line-up changes delaying the release of any stuff. Finally with the arrival of Youri (until then it was just Christian and Matthieu) on the lead guitar we managed to finish all the songs and release the first album; a year later Arthur came to play bass and complete a solid line-up.


4. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?


The lyrical topic is something that we don't like to talk about, we prefer to let everybody read the lyrics and make their own feelings, it's really more personal. Your second question summarize perfectly this point because for us the music and the lyrics make a single set.


5. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Ceremonia'?


First of all we wanted an explicit name who can symbolizes the idea of our sound; secondly, in spanish to conserve the idea that we always keep in mind: writing in this language.


6. The band members live in both France and Colombia, how does this work out in the recording process?


Actually all the band members live in France, so the recording process was easy. At the beginning all the members were colombian but gradually they left, the only colombian member who remains in the band is Christian.


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


Yes, we are a unsigned band but in recent months we have received a couple of deals from some labels but we haven't signed yet. We hope that finally something solid can be done very soon.


8. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of Doom and Death Metal?


Honestly the feedback has been pretty good, much better that we expected. We hope that the band can grow more and more so we can share our passion with people who likes this same kind of universe.


9. What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part of?


All the members plays in another group called OBSERVER (Matthieu plays keyboards and some guitar, Arthur play bass but sings and we have another drummer, Guillaume).


Two years ago we have released an EP called "Skyways In Details", and actually we are preparing to record our first album this summer. You can find more informations at:


https://www.facebook.com/observersound

https://observermusic.bandcamp.com


10. Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?


This is something we can't really tell because we are influenced day-to-day but safely we can say that our music always will keep this heavy, dark and melancholy sound but always pushing our boundaries.


11. 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?


We are influenced by a lot of music but we don't like to quote them because a lot of people who read the influences, sometimes will go to listen our music with a predetermined idea of these influences. The four members have different musical backgrounds but we like some stuff in common. Nowadays we are listening some recently releases like Secrets Of The Moon, Christian Death, Tribulation, etc…


12. What are some of your non musical interests?


Mainly cinema, especially, horror, thriller, science fiction and action movies.


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

  Distorted  drones  start  off  the  album  along  with  some  heavy  bass  guitars  a  few  seconds  later  and after  a  minute  melodic chants  are  added  onto  the  recording  and  when  synths  are  added  onto  the  recording  they  give  the  music  more  of  an  experimental  and  avant  garde  style  and  when  the  bass  guitars  speed  up  they  add  a  touch  of  black  metal  onto  the  recording.

  Most  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  and  grim  vocals  along  with  spoken  word  parts  can  also  be  heard  in  the  music  at  times  which  also  gives  the  songs  more  of  a  ritualistic  feeling  and  clean  guitars  can  also  be  heard  in  some  of  the  tracks  and  all  of  the  songs  stick  to  a  very  slow  musical  direction  while  there  is  also  a  brief  use  of  ambient  elements.

  Mhonos  plays  a  very  slow  and  bass  guitar  form  of  doom  metal  which  they  also  mix  in  with  elements  of  black  metal,  drone,  ritualistic  and  ambient  music  to  create  a  style  of t heir  own,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  while  the  lyrics  cover  occultism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Mhonos  are  a  very  great  sounding  ritualistic  doom  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Sequentia"  and  "Communio".  8  out  of  10.

Arche Interview

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

Arche was formed officially in 2014 when Ville Raittila and Panu Raatikainen joined in. Before that I had about a three year period of composing and contemplating the ways to get the ideas to manifest. We play music that could be described as Doom Metal or Funeral Doom.

2.So far you have released an ep, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?

Organic, dynamic, crushing.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

Arche is a mirror for my development as a human being and as an artist. So basically the lyrics are important events or realisations on my path. For me Arche marks a before and after on many levels.

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

The name Arche was taken from a Greek philosophy meaning indefinite substance from which all things are born and to which all things will return.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

Actually, we haven’t played any shows yet. For now we have been functioning as a studio project.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

Not yet.

7.So far the ep has been released by both Faceless Recordings and Third I Rx, are you happy with the support both labels have given you so far?

Graceless Recordings and Third I Rex have both been enormous supporters and truly nice people to work with, and we are happy to work with them.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of funeral doom metal?

The feedback has been really good. As newcomers in a genre full of so many great bands it’s amazing.

9.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part of?

Ville Raittila is playing bass in Worthless, a Death Metal band recommended for fans of Celtic Frost and Hellhammer, Panu Raatikainen is finishing his studies in music technology and I’m composing music for video games.

10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

Our next release (full length) is already written, and it seems to only deepen the exploration of strong melodies and variations, while balancing between minor and major chords. It will be a natural continuum to ‘Undercurrents’.

11.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?

When writing songs I rely heavily on intuition, so I’m not consciously looking for any influences from other bands.
I’m really into good movie scores and video game music. Of course I love many Doom Metal bands and many other bands on a wider spectrum, but there is something that truly inspires me in soundtracks of some older games that I grew up with.

12.What are some of your non musical interests?

So called Esotericism. Arts in general.

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

‘Undercurrents’ CD will be out in June and is now available for pre-order here:

Thank you for the interview!

  Psycho surf  rock  style  guitar  riffing  starts  off  the  cassette  along  with  some  drum  beats  and  the  riffs  also  bring  in  60's  style  melodies  but  done  in  more  of  a  dark  and  evil  approach  while  also  mixing  in  the  energy  of  punk  rock  and  when  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  fashion.

  Semi  blast  beats  can  be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  most  of  the  songs  are  instrumental  with  little  vocals  or  songwriting  ever  being  used  and  the  influence  of  rockabilly  is  a  huge  part  of  the  recording  while  the  songs  also  bring  in  an  improv  style  and  the  whole  ep  sticks  to  a  mid  paced  direction  from  beginning  to  ending  of  the  recording  and  after  awhile  elements  of  death  and  black  metal  can  be  heard  and  clean  singing  is  added  onto  the  recording.

  Coffin  Haze  plays  mostly  an  instrumental  musical  style  that  mixes  surf  rock  and  rockabilly  together  with  a  touch  of  black  and  death  metal  to  create  something  very  original  and  the  production  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  lo-fi  sound.

  Arche  are  a  band from  Finland  that  plays  funeral  doom  metal  and  this  isa  review  of  their 2016  ep  "Undercurrents"  which  was  released  by  Third  I  Rex.

  Acoustic  guitars  start  off  the  ep  and  after  a  few  seconds  the  music  goes  into  a  heavier  funeral  doom  metal direction  along  with  some melodic  guitar  leads  and  after  awhile  death  metal  growls  are  added  onto  the  recording  and  spoken  word  parts  can  also  be  heard  briefly  along  with  both  of  the  tracks  being  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  At  times  the  music  goes  back  to  the  early  90's  style  of  funeral  doom  metal  and  acoustic  guitars  also  make  a  return  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  as  the  album  progresses  atmospheric  synths  are  added  into  the  music  and  both  of  the  songs  stick  to  a  very  slow  yet  dark  musical  direction  from  beginning  to  ending  of  the  recording.

  Arche  plays  a  style  of  funeral  doom  metal  that  is  very  slow,  dark,  heavy  and  atmospheric  that  is  very  close  to  the  original  form  of  this  genre,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark,  poetic,  and  death  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Arche  are  a  very  great  sounding  funeral  doom  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out t his  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Plains  Of  Lethe".  8  out  of  10.

   

Bologna Violenta Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what is going on with the musical project these days?
- We are currently touring around Italy to promote Discordia, the new album, and we are working to book european gigs in fall and winter. We are also starting to think about the next work, that could be something different from what we did until now, but maybe it’s a little bit easily to talk about it.

2.Recently you have released a new album,how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?
- The new album is the natural consequence of what I did during the last decade. I started from a sort of instrumental cyber-grind with very short songs and the sound slowly evolved with the addiction of string instruments (I’m a violinist, so it was natural to me to do it). Now the songs are a little bit longer and the strings are a very important part of the sound of the project. The big difference between Discordia and the previous releases is about the recordings, because most of the instruments are played by real musicians instead the machines.

3.What are some of the concepts and images, you bring out with your musical sound?
- I always tried to create a sort of musical storytelling about human beings or, better, about the bad side of them. I used the structures of shockumentaries to do it, putting together very different atmospheres trying to shock the listeners. I used also weird track names to create different and fanciful images of what I wanted to express with music. The second-last album titled Uno Bianca is a sort of soundtrack of what happened in Italy between eighties and nineties, when a criminal gang (with some policemen in it) did more than hundred crimes, killing twenty-four people and wounding more than a hundred. The last album, instead, is about the stupid and continuing arguing between people for silly things.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name ‘Bologna Violenta’?
- The first inspiration was the city where I lived for about ten years (Bologna). It was a heavy period of my life and that city was a big part of the thing. I was also highly inspired by italian police movies of the seventies that were often titled with the name of a city followed by the word “violenta”. I thought it was a good idea to recreate with music that violent atmospheres that have been really inspirational for some movie directors like Quentin Tarantino and others.

5.Currently this project is solo, are you open to working with a full band?
- The project has been a one-man-band until one year ago, when I decided to work with Alessandro Vagnoni, a very talented drummer and multi-instrumentalist who helped me to write, record and mix the last album and the previous split Ep. My dream is to work in the future with a real band, maybe with a string quartet, but I think that it could be too difficult for so many reasons. Now we are a due and I’m really happy about it in this way.

6.On the new album you had a few guests, can you tell us a little bit more about who they are and their contributions to the recording?
- First of all there is Monique Honeybird Mizrahi, a charango player from Los Angeles (now living in NYC) who wrote the song Colonialismo and recorded the charango parts of it. Then there’s the brass section of Ottone Pesante, a metal trio with trumpet, trombone and drums. The album starts with the piano recorded by an old friend of mine, Paolo Polon, who plays at the Fecnice Theatre in Venice. There are also vocals contributions of Fabio Reeks Recchia, a crazy producer from Rome (who plays with Surgical Beat Bros and Germanotta Youth).

7.The new album was released on Overdrive Records, can you tell us a little bit more about this label?
- Overdrive records is a young independent label from Milan. The three guys who owns it are very passionate about music and honest people. They also owns a vinyl factory in Italy (Phono Press International), so they have the full control of what they produce and release. In this way, it’s a sort of DIY label, and I love to work with people who believe in a so deep way in what they release.
They has just released the last Fall Of Minerva album and they’re going to re-release some old soundtracks by Ennio Morricone.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of grindcore, underground and experimental music?
- I can tell you that I always had good feedbacks from people who listened to my music. I can tell that I’m not really loved by true-metal fans, but I also had some very good feedbacks from international bands like Napalm Death (I recorded an album with Mitch Harris, the former guitarist, under the name of Menace), Godflesh and Agoraphobic Nosebleed. My previous albums have been released also by Grindcore Karaoke, the label of J. Randall (the singer of ANB) who recorded vocals for You’re enough, a song included in my third album, titled Utopie e piccole soddisfazioni.

9.Where do you see yourself heading into musically during the future?
- I think I’ll continue producing experimental and extreme music, instead working as a producer, violinist and arranger for other bands and musical projects. I can’t think about my life without music…

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?
- I always loved the italian hardcore from the eighties (Negazione, Indigesti, Raw Power), but I also listened to many other genres. I grew up studying classical music and I can tell that one of my biggest influences is Bach and the russian composers of the late 1800. I love also extreme stuff like grindcore, cybergrind and harshnoise, but I listen also to something easier to listen like songwriters or post-rock bands. What I’m listening nowadays? I don’t really know… lot of different stuff. For the tour I choose everytime different Cds (now I’m listening the Drive Like Jesu discography and Fluxus, a noise italian band). In this moment I’m listening the Firebird Suite of Stravinsky.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?
- I like travelling, strolling with my dogs, watching movies and reading books, also if it isn’t so easy to do it because most of the time I’m touring with BV or other bands.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
- I just want the people to support the underground music and arts. It’s maybe the best way to improve the world and knowledge is the
way to stop wars and fightings between human beings themselves and also between human race and the world who guests it.
