The first thing that springs to mind is, “Lachaise...how the hell do you pronounce that?”. At least it’s not yet another English word, recalling as it does the famous Parisian Père Lachaise cemetery.
Established in 2007 following the combination of various projects, the band published its first album “Silent cries for help” in June 2008, produced by the record label MP&Records. That same year, the
band was selected to open the Italian tour of Christian Death, a legendary US gothic rock band.
Despite various line-up changes, keyboard player and leading composer Niklas “Suspiria” Goottilainen has always stayed on. For him, “you can overlap any type of sound , perform any type of virtuoso feat, but melody must reign supreme, with no half-measures”.
One of the characteristics of the band’s live performances is the absence of a bass guitar. When asked “how come?”, the guitarist Gezwind P. Vingerstaal answers: “We’ve never felt the bass guitar to be essential to our genre. We use 7- and 8-strings guitars and 88 keys keyboards, and we just don’t feel it’s necessary for now”.
In its current and by now well established line-up, Lachaise is about to publish its second album “A state of Oblivion” with the Revalve Records label, established by former member and founder of the Theatres Des Vampires, Rob Cufaro. The album is to be released in September 2012. Ranging from rock to metal, gothic to dark, when asked the classical question “How would you define your genre?”, this is how they reply: “We just make music…you decide!”
