Interviews About Albums: Morver - Peste (2023)

In this new interview, we sat down with the Chilean Progressive Rock/Metal band Morver to ask questions about their album "Peste"

1. What can you say about this new EP/CD?

This new release retains elements reminiscent of our previous album, "Staying in the Abyss". However, it ventures into a more alternative style, drawing inspiration from bands such as Deftones and A Perfect Circle. This fusion of sounds takes listeners on an emotional journey, exploring various moods across its tracks.

2. What is the meaning of the EP/CD name?

The album titled "Peste" ("Plague") encapsulates the central message of critiquing humanity's behavior towards its environment and itself. It reflects our relentless pursuit of opulence at any cost, often disregarding compassion and belittling those who oppose societal issues. It also highlights the potential greatness achievable through unity, emphasizing the significance of every voice. These ideas converge, suggesting that humanity must reconsider its role as the dominant species to cease being a detriment to the planet.

3. Which one is the composer of the CD/EP?

The primary composer for the musical aspect of this album is largely the guitarist, Marcelo Fuenzalida, who crafted the foundational guitar compositions that set the album's tone. Other musicians built upon this foundation, contributing melodies that complemented this base. Regarding lyrical content and the general concept, it's my creation (Carlos González).

4. If you had to pick one song, which one would you pick?

If I had to select one song, I'd spotlight "Inefable" ("Ineffable"), delving into the exploration of an individual's role on the planet. Its music intricately weaves with the sense of desperation associated with comprehending our place in the broader scheme of things.

5. Is there a special message in this EP/CD? If there is what it is?

The core essence of this album lies in portraying the inherent vices of our species and how a simple error can lead to calamitous disasters. Yet, within this, there are beautiful things we can create and hold onto, allowing us to evolve and persist in the hostile environment we inhabit.

6. Are there some lyrics that you'd love to share?

Here's a line from the song "Manán": "May it always be a storm, what was sketched like that, and may its fall never become ordinary." This line reflects an opinion on artistic expression, advocating for its free and chaotic flow to achieve a grandiose course; otherwise, it risks becoming mundane.

7. Which inspirations have been important for this album? Like musically or friends, family, someone you'd love to thank especially?

The primary lyrical inspiration for me came from "The Martian Chronicles" by Ray Bradbury. Although primarily critiquing the United States, its themes extend to humanity itself. The idea of highlighting humanity's flaws and our gradual approach toward our own extinction, along with that of our planet, deeply resonated with me while reading it. Regarding vocal melodies, numerous bands inspired me, but notably, it was the albums "Mer de Noms" by A Perfect Circle and "Terras Fames" by Rishloo.

8. Something to add?

I genuinely hope you'll take the time to listen to the entire album. Each song was crafted to stand alone and deliver a message within this overarching concept. I thoroughly enjoyed the creative process behind this album, and I hope you'll find similar enjoyment in experiencing it.
