Interviews: The Black Sorcery


In this new occasion we have had the opportunity to interview the Black Metal  band The Black Sorcery from Canada. Check out this band and give them a like on their FACEBOOK PAGE


1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that? 

LM: The Black Sorcery is indicative of evil and arcane magics channeled from the deepest catharsis in the anger and revolt of the self. It’s also very striking and bold, it speaks powerfully.

2.Why did you want to play this genre? 

LM: It’s barbaric nature speaks to us, a bludgeoning power and indignant force that has no space for melody or any pre-conceptions of harmony. Just attack.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed? 

LM: Yes, we are all in some form of musical entanglement. Manås is the man behind Albanach Ar Dheis, with whom my main band the Projectionist did a split with last year, Parageist, Orpheus and Ghast are all active members of the Projectionist. As well, I’ve known Ghast for years as he was in the infamous Operation Winter Mist, of whom I was a big supporter and had played shows with a decade and a half ago.

4. Each band member favourite band? 

LM: The Doors

Orpheus: Monstrosity

Manås: Windir

Ghast: Dissection

Parageist: Nightbringer

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

LM: Crippling, skull splitting anger and bitter anhedonia. Odd observations on existence and perception. Long periods of complete isolation. Targets that oppose what I hold to be virtuous. Death; both applying it and facing it.

6. Where was your last gig? 

LM: Our last gig as the Projectionist with Malphas on drums was in October in support of Rites of Thy Degringolade. As the Black Sorcery, we have yet to strike out in a live setting, but plans are being made.

7. Where would you like to act? 

LM: in a dirty sweaty bar in Finland for a packed house of rabid maniacs. Where I can breath fire and not burn down the establishment. If that were possible.

8. Whom would you like to feature with? 

LM: Archgoat, Revenge, Cultes des Ghoules, Black Witchery

9. Whom not? 

LM: Any boring, self important metal band that stand there in T-shirts headbanging with no connection to the crowd whatsoever expecting a reaction. I’ve seen far too much of that in my long career. 

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that? 

LM: I’m a rare breed that doesn’t give a toss what people think of me. I have no shame. I’ve skullfucked a severed pig’s head on stage and chewed and spat viscera at crowds. I would say fear is subjective and learned. 

Have two drinks before a show if you feel anxious but never more. A sloppy drunk is never as engaging as they think they are in the moment.

Don’t ever go on stage hoping for approval. Spit and rage upon them! Force your music down their throats with no mercy out of pure spite. If your intent is to hate them, you can never let yourself down

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

LM: Decidedly non-metallic but Joy Division for allowing me to chose leaving my ex-wife over suicide. King Diamond for evolving Satanic virtue into a story rather than spewing anti-religious clichés to useless effect and Xasthur for their/his pure wallowing nightmarescape of blackness. Warmarch, for Paulus’ brief use of the inhaled vocal which inspired me to master it.

Although I am a big fan of many bands in a similar vein to The Black Sorcery such as Archgoat and Revenge, i believe that a band whose only inspiration is their peers is doomed to watering down the stream of their intent and to never contribute anything valid or unique.

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

LM: An Argentinian female fan once asked me for pictures of my armpit hair which she wanted for sexual reasons as well as wishing me to order her to insert some chastity tube inside her vagina because I was “ a dark demon of Satan” and I must be the master of her lady parts.

13. What do you think of your fans? 

LM: I think that we make music to suit ourselves. If no one likes it, I’m fine with that because we make albums as a catharsis and a need to create for personal satisfaction. If people enjoy it, then I presume they can identify with our frustrations and hatespeech. To that end, I hope they find what they were seeking.

14. What do you think of our site?

LM: I think that underground metal thrives on the pulse of written word passed around the world in any dirty form that may crawl and twist its way to the homes of those who seek it. If there were no such methods of delivering news of metals, fans would struggle far more greatly to quench their thirst. To that end, we are appreciative.

Flatline - Demo (2018)


Track By Tracks: Infrared - Saviours (2018)


Saviours is a mature progression from the No Peace album but still maintains it’s heavy thrash roots. The theme is based on the album title which depicts the horror of what can occur when self-proclaimed saviours come to power. Each song touches on this theme, but each song is unique in how it covers the theme.

1. Project Karma: 

This song is an uprising song where an elite group of individuals who are not in power recruit other like-minded individuals and rail against the elites who are in power and have abused the system for too long.

2. The Demagogue:

A song about those who rise to power by doing and saying what the masses want to hear but have no actual belief in it other than it will server themselves. The song follows the rise and the after math of giving such a person too much power.

3. Saviour: 

This one covers the theme of the album in a more generic way of how those in power can abuse and terminate regular people from the masses. Its imagery is that of defiant people meeting their end, and submissive people finding their place in a controlled society while their culture and heritage is completely removed.

4. The Fallen: 

This song pays tribute to those who are sent to the front lines of war as well as at home to combat those who would do harm, but all the while are potentially doing so for people who are sending them to do their bidding for their own self serving purposes.

5. All in Favour:

Is an uprising song as well, but this one is about the common folk who simply have had enough and rally to pull the abusing elites from their penthouses and make them pay for the sins against their fellow man.

6. They Kill for Gods:

Shows how the youth are brainwashed from an early age to spread their ideology and religion by violence.

7. Father of Lies:

Is the most layered song on the album. It’s first three verses are pulled directly from the Bible which describes the Father of Lies (Satan), but the song moves to show the abuses of power from the clergy against its own practitioners, mainly children, in such an evil manner that it is clear they are no better than the father of lies they preach against. So here we have a group of people portraying themselves as saviours all while living complete lies and spewing lies in an effort to conceal and satisfy their sick desires.

8. Genocide Convention: 

The closing song on the album addresses the abuses against the Indigenous Peoples in Canada, from residential schools to complete genocide of a culture. The song calls for the country’s population to see and hear and understand the Indigenous Peoples’ pleas.

Halflight - State Of Being (2018)


Track By Tracks: The Slyde - Awakening (2018)



1. Awaken:

An intro track; a swell erupting into scene of a protest. Mystery that sets up destruction for:

2. Walk With Me:

A straight forward, punk-inspired upbeat opening track with a breakdown catchy chorus and breakneck keyboard solo.  This song talks about media control and propaganda.  Reminds me of System Of A Down and Megadeth.

3. In Silence: 

About the metaphorical and literal abuse of people- contrasts of heavy intricate sections, with a quiet mid-section, ramps up into a rhapsodous catchy part then leads to a crazy screaming guitar solo! People might ‘get triggered’ by these lyrics because it has the word ‘rape’ in it.  Musically similar to The Fall of Troy, Megadeth, and Opeth.

4. These Wars: 

Happy joyful intro riff using major tonality, pretty heavy lyrics, contains a double guitar/key solo then more key solo. This song is about narcissism and the takeover of social media in society.  Musically similar to riffs heard in Soilwork, and Dream Theater.

5. Awakening:

The title track, usage of organ tones gives a Deep Purple vibe.  Quirky, monophonic riffs remind me of Dream Theater and Symphony X.  Also has a catchy chorus, and probably the most technical song on the album.

6. So Blind:

Another fast, punk and metalcore-inspired heavy song. Very catchy Chorus at 1:00. Awesome keys/guitar double solo, keys solo breaks out of double solo. Very dirty outro at 03:30 that abruptly shifts the pacing of the song. As is the title: No one can shove their way through the everyday hustle and bustle to see that the most basic of their own human rights are being eliminated. (the last 4 songs from here were previously released as an EP in 2017 called ‘Back Again’)

7. Fading:

Intro is a big anthemic auditorium sound. Lots of key and guitar dueling underneath soaring vocals.  The interplay between the guitar and keys remind me of old school In Flames and other Eurometal bands like Soilwork and MyGrain.  Aliens don’t want to be our friends. Humans are too messed up.

8. Join the Parade:

A more progressive cut from the album, using shifting meters, funky bass lines (reminiscent of Daft Punk), and a tempo change halfway through into a Metallica-inspired thrashy section for a keyboard solo.  Hooky chorus as well. The song is about not having freedom and conforming.

9. Divide:

Another Eurometal-inspired song with its guitar riffs, hard hitting drums and bass, and dualing keyboard and guitar lines.  Verses have punky vocals and chorus has a repeating call-and-answer hook from the backup vocals.  This song talks about the politics of division and fear, and was written in secret as an anti-trump song during the 2016 campaign.  Finishes with a moody piano outro.

10. Back Again:


Our only ballad on the album, this song is the most radio friendly of all the songs, and showcases the most dynamic and variety in our sound.  Lots of ambiance and sparse textures, with a middle section that has our signature sound that’s prevalent throughout the record, then comes back down to finish the song.  The tune was inspired by Carl Sagan’s Pale Blue Dot concept and how the fragility and beauty of our world is taken for granted and often forgotten about.

Interviews: Saltlake


In this new occasion we have had the opportunity to interview the Alternative Rock  band Saltlake from UK. Check out this band and give them a like on their FACEBOOK PAGE

1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that? 

The bands name is something that we can never really remember how it came
about. I remember we needed to change our name and had made plans to do so but after about 3 months of coming up with ideas we were completely stuck.

We had a single coming out and had made a big announcement we were changing our name and the day was nearly upon us when we were supposed to release and we didn't have anything. Our old guitar player at the time came out with it and it just stuck. We liked the kind of obscurity of it and we just rolled with it. Its done us proud so far. 

2.Why did you want to play this genre? 

This is simply just the genre we love. We love combining heavy rock with big poppy melodies as they work so well together and there's so many cool avenues you can venture down. We have also all been brought up on rock music and there was just no way we were going to play anything else! 

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Liam and myself are good friends from School. We've known each other probably the best part of 10 years. John we came to know through some mutual friends about a year and a half ago and became good mates soon after that. Both Liam and I have been playing together in various projects since we
first met and things with john probably took off about a year ago! 

4. Each band member favourite band?

Man, that's a tough one as there are so many. Some of our biggest influences
are 

Liam - Extreme 
Henry - Guns N' Roses 
John - My Chemical Romance 

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

So many things can inspire you to write songs. I don't think we have any particular theme, usually we just write about what we are feeling at the time or events happening at a certain time, or sometimes maybe certain memories and stuff like that. Whatever we might be feeling.

6. Where was your last gig? 

Our last show was a little while ago at a cool bar (name escapes me) in Shoreditch, was a cool little sweaty gig!

7. Where would you like to play? 

We are still fairly fresh on the London circuit so theres plenty of brilliant venues we'd love to smash up in town. As well as that, we would love to go and play some cool shows over in Europe. We here nothing but great feedback fron bands who've toured over there. 

8. Who would you like to support? 

There is so many great upcoming bands out there but the bands we'd love to get the opportunity to play with would be the likes of Arcane Roots and Pvris. Those two bands are pretty awesome and we look up to them a lot! 

9. Who not? 

Ooooo that's harsh. Any publicity is good publicity in my opinion, so no one really. 

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

None of us lucky suffer with that. But we do get nervous. Best thing I would suggest is to channel your nerves and adrenaline and use it in your performance. Be prepared but don't think like crazy otherwise that's when you make mistakes. 

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

I think we take inspiration from our hero's and watching them and growing up listening to them. For me, it was when I first heard GN'R; my life literally changed that day. 

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

That's an interesting one. We once had to sign a bit of toilet role for a drunken guy at a bar in London after we had played. He was insisting, as it might be worth something one day, which made us laugh.

13. What do you think of your fans? 

They are amazing, and extremely loyal. We are small and upcoming so we see a lot of familiar faces at our shows and to know that there are people like them out there that are still going to shows and buying music gives me great hope. 

14. What do you think of our site?

We think its brilliant and important. Its so good to have a platform for us to discuss and promote our music. Thank you very much for for giving us the opportunity to speak to you guys. 

15. Something to add?

Our new single Dreaming In The dark is available on 1st June 2018. Available on all streaming services and online retailers.
