Voland Satan



BIO



Imagine the fury, the fury of raging planet expressed in such dark art as metal. Specifically extreme metal. Now add to that layers of symphonic orchestra, with its reachness and deversity of sounds. Lastly atop of this combo rides a true valkyrie, with a voice that can take you to heavens, or to the depths of hell. If you could imagine all of this, then you'll get the basic vision of Esperoza.

Biography:
Esperoza was founded Autumn 2010 in Chisinau, Moldova. Founding members Zoya (vocals, lyrics) and Dmitrii (guitar, composition & arranges) were disgusted with music that is considered today as "Symphonic Metal", and decided to create their own band, that would resemble a real Symphonic Metal. For the most time in past two years Esperoza was focused on creating material and finding fellow musicians, the latter, unfortunately, was fruitless, but the band did not give up that easily. So on December 31 2012 they released their debut E.P. "Tempest".

Concept:
Musically, it is based upon classics of Death and Black Metal genres, combined with arranges for a symphonic orchestra, and a real dramatic soprano.
Lyrically, the band addresses intrapersonal conflicts, personal enlightenment, hypocrisy and malice of society, ecological problems, survival in unfriendly world and to some extent sci-fi.

BIO: 

With the release of their “Shades of Fate”-EP in late 2009,

 the five-piece from Nuremberg/Germany laid the foundation to establish a signature sound, boasting heavy guitars, atmospheric mellotron sounds and complex rhythmic patterns. Singer Nicki’s stunning range comprises crystal clear vocals as well as raw death metal growls; however, she also contributes flute sounds to the songs’ more mellow moments. Effloresce’s songs express emotions and mirror the band’s technical capabilities without sacrificing musicality or listenability. Effloresce are also a committed live band and manage to capture their songs’ atmosphere, energy and depth just as much in front of audiences as in the studio. Speaking of which, Effloresce released their first full-length album “Coma Ghosts” in early 2012, which has been mixed and mastered by swedish legend Dan Swanö and received enthusiastic reviews by both the prog and the metal community.

Hi guys!!. Here we go again with another interesting interview on female metal radio. This time, Megan Robins, from the Australian Gothic / Doom Metal band LYCANTHIA, talk to us about influences, proyects, future etc..

- FEMALE METAL RADIOHello Megan and welcome to female metal radio!

- MEGAN ROBINS : Thanks a lot!. We´re very happy!.



- FEMALE METAL RADIO : Where you from , and how the project begins?
 
- MEGAN ROBINS :  We are from Sydney, Australia. Lycanthia begun as just a musical recording project between a bunch of friends, the result of which was the first album 'Myriad'. It's a very basic version of Lycanthia as it is today, the ideas were there but they weren't coming through in song writing yet. It took several years and line-up changes for the band to come together the way we wanted and start making the music we wanted to create.

- FMR What are some of your main influences as a band? 
 
 
- MEGAN :Paradise Lost, In The Woods, Draconian, Primordial, Bolt Thrower and of course, My Dying Bride.
 

- FMR How do you define exactly your band´s style?
 
 
- MEGAN : It's hard to define really, we have been going with Death-Doom/Gothic Metal, but I'm not sure it's a 
perfect fit as there are elements of Symphonic, Melodic, Celtic, Rock and even the odd Thrash riff in there as well...


- FMR What is the thematic of your last work?, Please, Tell us a little bit of this.
 
 
- MEGAN : We found that a lot of the tracks on 'Oligarchy', came under a common theme; feelings of disdain towards the system and the powers that be. There's a fantasy tale about unrequited and forbidden love (Forgone) and there's a couple of tracks about personal despair and internal struggles (Time Feeds This Wound, Despondency In Crescendo).


- FMR Do you think that your sound have something new ?
 
- MEGAN : I think we are bringing a new and sharper edge to an older style, definitely. Death-Doom has been around for a while but we are bringing our own style to it, layering it with rich harmonies and symphonic's, and not being afraid to change up the tempo when the song calls for it. We don't set out to break traditions, we just want to write the music we love.
 
 
- FMR :   What you think will happen with your music?
 
- MEGAN : I don't have any expectations, dreams in abundance, but not expectations...
 

- What's your favorite album by another band?
 
 
- MEGAN :  Geez this is a REALLY tough question................... I guess if I have to pick just one, it would be "Like Gods Of  The Sun" by My Dying Bride
 
 
- FMR :  Where can people go to get or listen your album?
 
- MEGAN : All the tracks are currently streaming on our bandcamp and other pages, here are all the places you can hear it:
 
 


- FMR : Please, what websites have the band for people to know you better ( Your facebook, twitter, website. This space is perfect to promote your band!  )
 
- MEGAN : Here are our websites:
 


- FMR : Ok Megan!. Has been a pleasure to talk with you. And congratulations for the amazing gig with Eluveitie!!

 - MEGAN : Thanks a lot!. It was an unforgettable experience. Thank you guys for your support. You´re doing very good things for new bands.

Formed in the late 90s, Lycanthia are a 6 piece Gothic/Death Doom Metal band from Sydney, Australia.


The popularity of Lycanthia's live shows, along with their self-titled demo, established the band in the Australian Metal Underground. Their first full length album 'Myriad', saw them develop their musical style with greater maturity, creativity and originality.

Their next release, an EP titled 'Within The Walls', further cemented their place as pioneers of their genre. The song 'Lost' peaked at #11 on the 'triple j' Australian Metal Charts within the first week of release.

April 2012 marked the release of Lycanthia's full length album 'Oligarchy', in which they have sculpted their reactions to existence and the world into a musical expression of harsh, bleak reality. The album was quickly picked up by Green Media in Australia and is due to be re-released early 2013 through Hypnotic Dirge Records in digipak format.

The success of Lycanthia has continued to grow with regular radio airplay and live performances alongside local and international acts.
Their music can be described as dark, aggressive and emotional sound-scapes fused with classical and rock elements. Consisting of Grim Male and Dual Female Vocals, Violin, Keyboards, Guitars and Drums.

Hello girls and boys!!.

Today is a great day, cuase we have the pleasure to speak with Alejo Cardenas, guitarist and scream vocals from the Colombian - USA band based in Los Angeles INHERITOR.

- FEMALE METAL RADIO : Greetings Alejo and thanks a lot for be with us!

 

- ALEJO CARDENAS : Thank you very much!. It´s a pleasure!.


- FMR : Ok Alejo, where you from and how the proyect of INHERITOR begins?

- AC : I’m Colombian-american; I was born in Los Angeles CA but I was raised in Bogota Colombia….both of my parents are Colombian as well, and I’ve lived there most of my life; so you could say I’m Colombian at heart….Inheritor started out as a female fronted melodic metal band in Bogota, were we worked and played for a few years and were we produced and released our debut album “from Dust n Passion” in 2010…thins worked out very well, but after a while…it seemed that relocating in the US would be the best thing for the project when it came to “opportunities”….so that’s what happened….right now inheritor is an LA based metal band with a whole new American line up.

 
- FMR : What are some of your main influences as a band? 



- AC : Well, we all have a different taste in the music that we listen to, but of course we all have a strong metal background going from bands like opeth, at the gates, nightwish and cradle of filth, to classical music, blues and jazz etc.



- FMR : How do you define exactly your band´s style?



- AC : The band has always been qualified as a “melodic death” metal band with a lot of neo-classical and progressive influences….however, with the release of our upcoming album (wich hopefully will be very soon) inheritor will become a “Colombian-folk” metal band.

- FMR : What is the thematic of your last work?, Please, Tell us a little bit of this.

 

- AC : Well the main purpose of the upcoming album, is to rescue many musical and

traditional elements from the “Joropo” (one of Colombia’s folk-music genres) thru modern music; in this case it would be metal… The album will be called “mestizo” which means mongrel or half-breed…. and it can be considered a tribute to the regions near by the Orinoco river, where most of the traditions remain alive mostly thru oral tradition….most of the lyrics are also based on the ancient legends and/or mythology from the same region….so yes basically the idea is to preserve the roots and traditions from this lands.


 

- FMR : Do you think that your sound have somenthing new ?

 

- AC : Well, even though we are not 100% shure; I think the concept on wich the upcoming album is based, and the mix of elements mentioned in the last question has never been done before… highlighting the fact that we would not be just another metal band trying to sound like the “European-folk metal” bands (wich we respect and enjoy a lot) but we are more focused on folk traditions from our own countryes.

 

 - FMR : What you think will happen with your music?

 

- AC : Well, of course we want what every band wants…wed like to go on tour and play live in as many places as possible; so we are working hard and doing everything we can to see what happens, and…..I guess will have to find out.


- FMR : What's your favourite album by another band?


 - AC :My favorite album of all times is “the jester race” by in flames

 

- FMR : Where can people go to get or listen your demo / album?

- AC : Our debut album “from dust n passion” is available on itunes, amazon and other retailers but you can also look for some tracks on the bands youtube chanel……for the physical album people can just contact us on facebook; we can distribute it thru regular mail in Colombia, US and Germany.

 

- FMR : Please, what websites have the band for people to know you better ?

- AC : We can easily be found on facebook as “inheritor Colombia” we are also on reverbnation, last fm, here are some links:

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Inheritor-Colombia/157722660914351

- FMR : Great!, this way will be more easy to found Inheritor in the web.

 

Ok Alejo, Thank you very much for be so kind with us and good luck for Inheritor and for "from dust n passion". Congratulations for your work!!.

 

- AC : Thank you guys, and congrats for you too for be helping and supporting all the bands. See you soon!!

BIO :


Inheritor is a Colombian-American melodic metal band that was formed in Bogota D.C. on 2009. The project has always been a five-pieced female fronted group of musicians with strong neo-classical influences, combined with a touch of death, heavy and progressive metal.

In 2009 the band began to play live, and worked with Stormblaze Entertainment for a year; during this time the band was able to do a small tour where they shared the stage with big acts from the local Colombian metal scene like Gaias Pendulum, Soulburner, Loathsome Faith etc.

In 2010 the band released its debut album “From dust n Passion”; it had good local radio airplay and positive reviews in many countries like Finland, Peru, Spain etc. The album was recorded and produced by guitarist and founder of the project Alejandro Cardenas; and mastered by Carlos Silva at C1 Mastering in Bogota D.C. Some of the recording musicians that were part of the project from the beginning were Diego Duque (bass), Ivan Montenegro (guitar), Victoria Mejia (vocals) and Leonel Rojas (drums).

In 2011 the band launched its first video clip “A Fading Caress” and after going through some line up changes they finished working with “Stormblaze Entertainment” and signed with “Independent” for the rest of that year.

In 2012 Inheritor began the production of a new album and moved to Los Angeles, CA.

Now, after regrouping with some local musicians, Inheritor is about to finish the production of that second studio album; which will be coming out with a new lead singer, and a touch of “folk” Colombian roots added to the original sound!
