  On  this  album  Hostile  Surgery  takes  noise,  drone,  industrial,  ritual  and  experimental  and  mixes  them  together  to  create  a  very  long  and  hypnotic  track  as  well a s  keeping  everything  instrumental  while t he  production  sounds  very  dark and  lo-fi.


  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Hostile  Surgery  and  if  you  are  a f an  of  noise,  drone,  ritual,  experimental  and  industrial,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  8  out  of  10.

  When  synths  are  utilized  they  also  bring  elements  of  ambient  into  the  music  while  programmed  beats  are  also  added  into  some  parts  of  the  album.  Clean  playing  and  melodic  guitar  leads  can  also  be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  along  with  some  distorted  noises  also  being  utilized  at  times,  spoken  word  parts  and  vocals  can  also  be  heard  briefly  as  well  as  the  use  of  real d rums  also  giving  the  album  more  of  an  improv  atmosphere.


  On  this  recording  Snares  of  Sixes  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  ambient,  experimental,  noise  and  field  recordings  and  mixes  them  together  to  create  a  sound  of  his  own  as  well  as  adding  in  some  session  work  from  members  of  Occulted  Sound,  Barrowlands,  Kayo  Dot,  Dreadnought,  Winds  and  Dolven  while  the production  sounds  very  dark.


  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Snares  Of  Sixes  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  ambient,  experimental,  field  recordings  and  noise  you  should  check  out  this  solo  project.  8  out  of  10.

Thief Interview

 

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

Thief is an electronic project whose backbone is largely built from sampled and manipulated sacred chant music of various forms. I like to call it Dungeon Pop and heard it once described as NIN having sex with Portishead in a haunted church.


2.Recently you have released a new album, musically how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

I think the lyrics are more personal and it has a more aggressive side to it. I’m really happy with the mix/production too. The last two albums when I listen back to them I hear a lot of little things I wish I had maybe done a bit differently but with this one I have not had that experience... yet... time will tell, ha!


There’s also a lot more instrumentation on this album. Guitar and bass in a lot of songs, organ and harpsichord pop up in a few choruses and of course a lot of synth/electronics.


3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explores with the newer album and also how would you describe your progress as songwriters over the years?

The lyrics seem to focus on addiction, transgression or anger, mysticism, heartache and horror. They all happily hold hands and jump around in a circle.


It’s hard to quantify something like songwriting as there’s no right or wrong way to do it, but I’d say with this album I witnessed a faster process and was able to intuit what the song needed and where it was going without much critical thought. I’ll often write in a “blitz” and save the analytical editing brain for later when I start producing stuff out. Lyrics however have always been a sticking point for me and 80% of the time are a total pain to get right. I look forward to when that becomes easier.


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


From the start I knew I was going to be sampling a lot of old chant/sacred work, so I thought it was a pretty fitting name in that regard. There’s also something in the spirit or symbolism of a blackguard or a bandit that resonates with me. But most importantly, I just liked the way the word looks when written: “THIEF” - it has a certain weight and feeling to it, doesn’t it?


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

The artwork was created by the prolific Spanish artist Joseba Eskubi. The piece was originally a painting by the 17th century Dutch painter Pieter Fransz de Grebber, but Eskubi “defaced” it and to create the surreal almost violent cover art. I actually didn’t know that that was how he made it until after I bought it from him but was very happy to learn it because it's a very “Thief” process


- that is, taking something old and transforming it into something new and damaging it along the way.


6.With this project you record everything by yourself but also have experience working with other musicians, how would you compare the two?

Personally, I approach and understand music much like how a painter or writer does. I see it as a solitary act that should beget a personal, defined voice. I much prefer to work alone. I like to have final say over everything and being able to indulge in the luxury of taking all the time I want to wonder and explore ideas to ensure that they meet their proper destination.


However there are of course benefits to writing and working with other people. There’s definitely an ineffable magic that can happen when two or more people really “click” while writing and it’s something that I think only happens in music. What other medium can work with two people spontaneously writing to create a whole thing? I’ve only really had that with maybe one person.


7.What are some of the best shows you have played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

My impression/memory of a show is more about the entire experience of the night and the setting as opposed to just how we played or how many people were there. With Thief what immediately comes to mind was this giant industrial bakery turned art-commune in Atlanta. The property was strange and enormous, the people great and the other bands also ruled. Also this old puppet theater in New Orleans... creepy puppets everywhere and it was raining all night in the summer humidity with some bad sleep deprivation. Also coming to mind was while playing in Botanist in Europe: Roadburn in 2015 and the other was at an abandoned orphanage in France that was turned into a kind of art compound.


We’re pretty lively on stage, I think. A lot heavier with live drums and Chris Hackman’s crushing bass tones. I can’t help but spazz-out with some of the more wild tracks so there’s definitely a much more energetic vibe going on that might not be apparent on the album. That’s good I think... if a band sounds and feels exactly like they do on the album I’ll just stay home and listen to the album!


8.I have also read that you live in a 'Zen Buddhist' temple, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in this path?

Sure. Growing up I was always intrigued by the idea of meditation and consciousness but never really did more investigating outside of reading about it and experimenting with psychoactive substances. Then around 2007/2008 I was going through some really painful experiences and I knew this man who had been a Hindu practitioner for 40-something years and he inspired me to find a path that worked for me. I felt drawn towards Zen Buddhism because it is strikingly devoid of any kind of flowery language or intellectualization about life. I liked the seemingly wild immediacy of it and all of its apocryphal stories so I started to practice it seriously when I found a teacher and eventually found this place that I live and practice at now.


9.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of experimental and electronic rock?

To be honest I’m not really sure. People seem to really like Thief, both on record and on stage, and we seem to be accepted by people from all scenes and genres, but I never know what fanbase they really belong to or if they’re representative of anything but themselves. I think that’s because Thief doesn’t really fit into one box so we are able to work in a lot of places and spark interest from all different kinds of people


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


It’s my life’s work so I’m just going to keep doing what I’m doing: making music. I would hope that eventually I can quit my day job to fully focus on Thief and hopefully with this new album there will be more opportunities to tour.


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?

Growing up I’d say bands like Ulver, Bjork, Aphex Twin, classical stuff and Radiohead had a big influence on me, and then when I really got into metal that became a huge creative inspiration in my life. The first time I heard Death and Emperor had a profound impact on me. I listened to a lot of Tool and hardcore punk too. I don’t think all of this is apparent in my music but sometimes I catch a light whiff of the aforementioned in some way.


Nowadays I find myself listening to a lot of ambient/experimental stuff. I think I listened to Eliane Radigue nearly everyday in 2020. I’ve been listening to a lot of Sarah Davachi lately who I just discovered - she’s a really great ambient/drone artist. I really like this experimental electronic band Emptyset, they’re one of the few artists that I have no idea how they make the sounds that they do. Thomas Kroner’s “arctic synth” albums have been droning in my home a lot. Throwing Snow has been getting some heavy rotation along with some old school drum and bass and 80’s electro/detroit house playlists I’ve been building. I find myself happily stuck in older metal favorites so there’s always that going on, too.


12.Does Occultism play any role on your music?


Nah. If it ever makes an appearance it’s mostly as a symbol for something.


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


Thanks for your time and I hope everyone enjoys the album, it's a privilege to share it with you all.

Pavor Nocturnus Interview

 


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


Pavor Nocturnus originates from the will to express myself through music, without boundaries or genre's limitations, letting flow and channeling suggestions coming from different kind of arts but also from spirituality and emotional experience.Through musical experimentation i try to develop a  language that can deliver my personal perception of all this elements, like a vision from a dream where rational and emotional are inseparable.


2.Recently you have released a new album, musically how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?


“Bosch” is the most experimental of my albums, i have collected a lot of sounds and field recordings, playing with all sorts of instruments and musical material. Taking inspiration from paintings led me to avoid a musical structure and focus on the elements or feelings i wanted to recreate, giving me freedom but, at the same time, forcing me to find a proper sound for what i was looking at or what the pictures raised in me.

As i said before i have made large use of field recordings and played a lot with voices and effects, quite the opposite percussions and rhythmical sounds are used only in a couple of tracks.  


3.The main concept of the new album deals with the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in his works?


I have seen the “triptych of delights” and other paintings of the artist in the Prado museum in Madrid, those pictures left me astonished. I started some research on H. Bosch, his life and his work, making a selection of eight paintings and thinking about how they could sound in music.

One of the most fascinating thing about Bosch's opus, in my opinion, is the complex symbolism and the eschatological aura that fills all his paintings, expecially the one representing the otherworld or divine elements; many conjectures have been made but there are very small certainty about the meanings behind his works.


4.On one of your earlier releases you explored the occult and witchcraft, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in the dark arts?


Having a (mostly Black) Metal background i am fascinated by occult, rituals and mysticism and i like to take inspiration from these themes. I like the connection between music and magic, rituals, alchemy, musical repetition and catharsis through sound and dance. Sometimes these elements can also be a pretext to talk about what surround us, giving a different perspective, to catch the attention of the listeners and push them to think about something they usually wont consider. For example the concept of my first album “Streghe” is based on witches and sorcery, but it can also be interpreted as a praise to women, considered as strong, independent beings that stand against constraints and men's rules.


5.What are some of the other themes you have explored over the years with your music?


In “Sognomeccanico”, the album made in collaboration with the australian artist Versuscode, we searched the subconscious and explored our emotions trying to establish a link across two opposite poles of the world, expressing ourselves through a surrealistic musical language, enveloped by an oneiric filter. 

I have always been focused on the “dark side” of things, finding more inspiration in ache than in edifying thoughts; i am also intrigued by religions and by divine elements in general: being not a religious person but being receptive to spiritual behaviour and feelings allows me to approach some themes in unusual (even romantic) ways.


6.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Pavor Nocturnus'?


Pavor Nocturnus (latin for night terror) is a sleep desease which manifests itself during childhood. As a kid i experienced some form of pavor nocturnus, having panic while sleeping and not being able to discern reality from dream. 

When i started this project i thought that Pavor Nocturnus could be the manifestation of what lies underneath the surface, what crawls under my skin and can not emerge during the day, but that materialises in all his horrific essence when i play music: this concept has evolved with the add of a mask for live performances, enriching the visual impact and giving a face to the terror. 


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


The symbol you see on the front cover is a detail taken from one of the paintings (it's not hard to spot). The meaning of the symbol is not certain, there's a theory about some sort of signature of the painter but it's just an hypothesis. I liked this undefined sense so i choosed to put it on the front, changing the colour to gold, like a light glowing in the dark. Inside the digisleeve edition you can find a portion of the painting “Musical Hell” where, among some musical instruments, the damned are tortured by demons and Satan, sitting on a bottomless throne, devour their body.


8.Over the years you also have done some collaborations, can you tell us a little bit more about the artists that you have worked with so far?


I have worked with Tim McGee/Versuscode on Sognomeccanico; with the Berlin based musician and 3D artist Vince Gagliardi (The Nent, Vu) we worked on some tracks and on an audio/video project about cultural roots and traditions of the south of Italy; with Gabriele Panci/New Risen Throne we have released a track paired with a video made by Gabriele from a 3D concept art called “The Void”;  of course there's the collaboration with visual artist H3ml0ck, that has created the videos for “Bosch”. Currently i am working on some tracks with Enrico Cerrato/Petrolio, i am always open to collaborations, there are many artists i admire with which i would like to work. 


9.Have you done any live shows or open to the idea?


I have played shows in Italy, Spain and Canada, before the pandemic i was supposed to start a mini-tour in UK and some dates in Berlin which i hope to recover very soon.


10.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of drone and other underground genres of music?


I have recieved positive feedback by friends, musicians and fans of the genre, reviews from (mostly) Italian websites and webzines, but also some from Russia and Europe.




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


I hope i will be able to perform live as much as i can. I would like to meet new artists and collaborate on different projects, also making some soundtracks maybe.  


12.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?


As i said before my musical background has roots in extreme metal, mostly black and death, but also in classical music. Some essential band names for me are Mayhem, Nile, Ulver, Burzum, Meshuggah, SunnO))), Bologna Violenta. On the other side i like Amon Tobin, Venetian Snares, Igorrr, The Haxan Cloak, Scorn, and many soundtracks composers like Angelo Badalamenti, Wojciech Kilar, Cliff Martinez... too many.

Currently i am listening to some ritual music like Phurpa and Arktau Eos, the new Lingua Ignota's album and some underground stuff coming from firends/musicians.


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


I wish to thank you and all the people that have shown interest in my work for your support.

This Darkness Of Mine/The Dandelion Fields/Letting Go Of The Old World/Submersion Records/2021 Split Album Review

  His  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  some  ambient  style  synths  which  also  use  a  variety  of  many  different  sounding  keys  while  also  capturing  the  atmosphere  of  a  science  fiction  movie  soundtrack.  His  track  is  also  over  23  minutes  in  length  along  with  some  elements  of  noise  also  being  utilized  at  times  along  with  some  programmed  beats  also  being  added  into  certain  sections  of  the  song,  all  of  the  music  is  instrumental  and  the  production  sounds  very  dark.


  In  my  opinion  This  Darkness  Of  Mine  is  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  ambient  and  noise  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  his  side  of  the  split.


  Next  up  is  The  Dandelion  Fields  a  solo  artist  that  plays  a  minimalist  mixture  of  drone,  ambient  and  post  rock.


  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  some  atmospheric  sounding  drones  while  the  synths  also  bring  in  elements  of  ambient.  Spoken  word  parts  are  also  added  into  some  parts  of  the  recording  along  with  all  of  the  drum  beats  also  being  programmed  as  well  as  the  acoustic  guitars  also  adding  in  touches  of  post  rock  when  they  are  utilized.


  The  guitar  leads  are  also  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  along  with  one  of  the  songs  also  being  an  instrumental.  When  vocals  are  utilized  they  are  also  done  in  a  very  clean  style  as  well  as  some  percussion  also  being  used  briefly.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  while  the  lyrics  ask  a  question  if  humanity  can  move  towards  a  more  sustainable  and  equitable  society.


  In  my  opinion  The  Dandelion  Fields  is  a  very  great  sounding  minimalist  mixture  of  drone,  ambient  and  post  rock  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  solo  project.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Deep  Transitions"  and  "Daughters  Of  Congo".


  In  conclusion  I  feel  this  is  a  very  great  sounding  split  and  i  would  recommend  it  to  all  fans  of  noise,  ambient,  drone  and  post  rock.  8  out  of  10.
