BEING ALIVE IS BEAUTIFUL THE SEARCH FOR PEACE

 Hi there. Thanks for taking your time for answering this questions. Could you introduce yourself and why the name’s choice? 



Hi and thank you! My name is Christina Earlymorn and I play for Being “alive” is beautiful. The name came through a massive depression I´ve felt back in 2017. Being “alive” means sarcasm towards life, because sometimes I´ve just felt like only existing and not really to be alive. I think you know what ya mean.

 Let’s talk about your logo. It was you, who designed it? What ideas did you have for it?

 Yes. I was the designer of the logo. Well. I hadn´t a special idea for it. I just swinged it with a pencil on a piece of paper and scanned it later with my scanner to finish it up digitally. 

Your style is Doom/DSBM. When did you realize these genres fit together so well? 

Tbh. I was in a very great depression as I recorded the first album. Originally I wanted to jump in front of a train before, but I thought to myself: “Before I do that I will scream out my frustrations BIG TIME!” - Due to that I was very lazy and skipped recording any rhythm guitars. So there is no Guitars. Only at one song I sneaked in a lil guitar solo, which I hate today lol I figured out, that the mood is (In my music with Being “alive”) transproted the best if the sound is heavy, slow and doomy sounding. The depressive black metal bit on the other side of the coin just goes hand in hand, because myself listen to DSBM alot if I am down. I love the expression of artists such as THY LIGHT, I AM IN A COFFIN or HAPPY DAYS. 


Do you only listen to Doom and Black Metal? Or do listen to other band? Which are they?

 No. I don´t. I listen to Jazz, Hip Hop, Blues, Rock, Metal, some Country and Classical music. I love bands/artists like ZZ Top, Joe Bonamassa, Black Label Society, Pantera, Megadeth, Type O Negative, BB King, Mozart, Bach, Paganini, Richard Wagner, Testament, Tsjuder, Sargeist, A Pale Horse Named Death, Graveyard, Gorgoroth, Watain, Motörhead, Thy Light, Advent Sorrow, Slayer, The Dead South, Ghostemane and Sleep. 


Your journey started in June 2017, with an EP “Schutt und Asche”. Two years after, “Unfrieden” was released. What was more difficult for you? Playing all the instruments or writing the lyrics?

 What were your inspirations in those years? Both albums have been driven by depression. So I didn´t felt it hard. One thing just came to another. If I am depressed alot of lyrics pop into my head like a machine gun. Same as with riffs. Its strange, because it seems that depression always has boosted my creativity lol 

Congrats on signing with Talheim Records / Talheim Records Germany. 

How long have you been searching for a label that could understand and fulfil your needs? Thank you! I wasn´t pretty active searching for a label. I just gave it a shot and wrote to him. I just wanted to have a partner who can help me produce some physical stuff of my music. So I am glad that I´ve found a very good partner with the Talheim Records family! “Frieden” means Peace in German and will be released on November 28th. 

Is that the reason you decided to let go the black and white cover this time? 



No. If you look closely it is the same tree that is appearing on the previous album UNFRIEDEN. At Unfrieden the tree is dead naked. On FRIEDEN the tree somehow managed to get alive again. I saw a kinda phoenix in it which basically discribes my path with overcoming and dealing with depression. - I know it looks strange for a Doom/Dsbm cover, but to me it is very fitting to have (even in this dark music) a little ray of light shining upon your head. In the song “Frieden” (Peace) there is the eternal search for peace themed. Just take a look at this world right now. Everyone talks about equality and freedom. It´s all bullshit IMHO, because there is no Frieden! There is no peace! We all search for it, but we rarely can find it. Thats the theme of the song and basically the complete album. - The album cover with all the sunshine and the nice landscape compared to the music shall be a total scam, because the music is dark, slow and very aggressive. I imagine (With a smiling face) some elderly women or men buying that CD in a store just because it looks nice and then getting blasted away by hearing its first song after the opening! Hahahahahaha! 


What guitars and other instruments did you use this time to achieve the perfect sound? And the inspirations to write the songs? What were they? 

As I mentioned before there are no guitars to hear. It is all Bass, Drums and Vocals. But for the intro I composed a little track on the Keyboard. Some kind of piano. - I have a guest singer on the track REGEN (Engl. Rain) Stevie Steel is more of a 80´s metal singer and adds a cool sick twist to my black metal raspy screams! I love when he sings his part! Also I sung some falsetto/opera style background vocals in one of the tracks of the new album and there is a slight dip of black ´n roll in one of the songs, too! But overall the rest is classic Being “alive” is beautiful with primitive riffs, heavy bass sounds, pounding drums and high black metal vocals.


 I know from your Facebook page that you are shooting a video. Can you give us more details, please? The name of the music? The director? The idea for it? 

Sure I can! I shot a video for the song REGEN (In which also my guest singer is appearing in the video) In the song “Regen” (Engl. Rain) I themed the current corona situation. Lockdowns, ppl getting crazy, businesses dying and all the negative shit going on with it. - In germany there is a saying: “Im Regen stehen gelassen” - Which means: “Left standing in the rain” without anyone helping you in your present situation or with your current problems. You simply get neglected while you suffer. I directed the video for it as I did for all other videos in Being “alive”. My boyfriend and my mom sometimes help me out by filming. Also I have a little standee to clip my smartphone to it. The idea for the REGEN video came spontaneous as I drove in heavy rain to my boyfriend's place in the middle of the night. The rain seemed endless and it was so chaotic as the current time seems to be. So I parked my car and took a walk without an umbrella and filming me getting soaking wet. That was the fundament that started the complete idea for the music video of the song. 

If you could sing with someone or write a song, who would it be and why? 


Zakk Wylde. I am a very big fan of his music and he inspires me every day. Thanks so much for answering. Any final words you’d like to share? Thank you very very much for this great interview! I really dug the questions! I wish you, my fans, and all the readers here the MAXIMUM of health, that their businesses stay alive and keep on growing bigger! We are all in this together! I am nothing bigger or better than you guys! Please stay safe y´all!

Dead Harrison – Review



My main influences, while I grew up, were bands from the 80’s, such as Sisters of Mercy, The Cure and so on. What I miss the most about that decade (I was born in 1984 but in my teenager years, I listened to those bands), is the visuals, the aesthetics and everything you can probably think of.

This trio combines goth and punk very well and you’re a baby bat like myself, you will enjoy “End Of The Bloodline”. I like the introduction on this tune. It’s pure early Goth and talk about life, love, death, and the end of the world.

Their sound is a combination of heavy doom riffs, gothic melodies, and upbeat punk-rock tempos interspersed with harsh metal growls and mesmerizing vocals.

And that synthesizer they use on their songs, is pure genius.

Give this band a chance!


Band Profile:

- Drae the Dead - Lead Vocals

- Shawn the Dead - Guitar/Vocals, 

- Jason Skulls - Bass/Vocals 

 - Axile - Drums.

Project Alcazar : Lost in Centralia the metal times inside scoop

 1.Thanks for taking the time to talk to The Metal Times


! You have a new album out, Tell us

about it!

The new album is Project Alcazar : Lost in Centralia released on 9/30/2020 through Guitar One

Records here in the USA. The album has ex Fates Warning drummer Mark Zonder on it. An

amazing keyboard player Caleb Hutslar – myself of guitars and bass. A few other guest

musicians most notably guitarist Jon Faber who did some great guitar work on one track for me,

2.Where was it recorded? Is all the material new? It was recorded at Sonic Lounge studios in

Columbus Ohio – engineered and co produced by Joe Viers who I have worked with from over

20 years now. Most all of the material is brand new except for the re release of “Stranger

Avenue – which was on Chasin Voodoo and “Water Music” which was originally released on

Lion Music classical tribute to GF Handel by Lion Music out of Finland. Both those songs

already have music video shot by Bob Holobaugh with CrewDawg Productions.

3.What is the biggest difference between your last release and the new one? I believe the

songs are stronger – I co wrote everything with Caleb and we worked very well together

exchanging ideas back n forth quickly. Mark Zonders drumming also added a fresh ingredient to

the songs as he is very good about approaching songs from a different angle with his fills and

accents

4.Are you signed to a label? ,If so which one and how did they help or support the process?

Recently just signed with Guitar One Records. Currently they have done pretty well promoting

the project for me and they are very easy to work with and open to suggestions from their artists

5.What has been going on with the band between albums? Did you tour? No touring

obviously with the Pandemic going on and it has never been easy to find committed talented

players to go out and perform the material live. Its like herding cats so to speak – once you get

things almost in place someone decides they don’t have time to do it or its too much work

6.Do you have any new members? First time working with Mark Zonder and also first time

with Caleb as well.

7.Who produced the new album and how did they effect the album? Pretty much myself but

Joe Viers also contributes ideas and suggestions all the time – Mark also would let me know if

he felt strongly about something being a certain way or feel

8.Some like to record naked or in the dark with candles , Did you have any strange studio

practices? Was that Venom or Celtic Frost? Hahahaha Nothing special for me other than just

like to be alone and do my thing

9.Of course tell us where to pick up your album and how to learn more about you. You

can find the new CD @ www.projectalcazar.com – the album will eventually be available on

most of the main digital media websites like Amazon, Itunes, Spotify etc but right now its directly

through the bands website

10.What is your plans now that the new album is out? We will be shooting videos for most

all of the songs on the new album pretty much up through the summer. I have worked with

videographer Bob Holobaugh with CrewDawg productions for the last 12 music videos and I

have always been happy with them. Possibly write a few songs and recruit a vocalist next time

around as well as bringing in some more name players to help promote it 

NINEFINGER TALKS NEWEST RELEASE

 


1.Thanks for taking the time to talk to The Metal Times! You have a new album out, Tell us about it!

It’s a 4 song EP called “Between Everything Else.”  Our song “Threw it All Away” is playing on local LA radio and was featured on the Heidi and Frank show, “Stay or Go” on 95.5 KLOS.

 

2.Where was it recorded? Is all the material new?

It’s all new material.  We have been releasing EPs that past few years so that we can get new music out as frequently as we can.  It was recorded at Ninefinger HQ in North Hollywood, CA as well as D Squared Studios in Winnetka.

 

3.What is the biggest difference between your last release and the new one?
I feel like we stayed true to our Ninefinger sound but challenged ourselves with new melodies, sounds and tempos. 

 

4.Are you signed to a label? , If so which one and how did they help or support the process?
We have our own label called 656 Records.  We found that it was easier and less red tape. That being said, if Capital, Sony etc want in, come on down. 

 

5.What has been going on with the band between albums? Did you tour?
We have a bunch of stuff lined up.  We are waiting for the pandemic to end so we can get to it.  We are scheduled to play the Bring Back the Rock Festival in South Africa as well as other shows in and around South Africa.  We also have shows lined up in the UK.  Things are in the works but on hold until the pandemic is over.  So we are just writing a bunch of new material and recording. 

 


6.Do you have any new members?

Not really.  The three core members are always there and then we use different bass players for shows and tours.

 

7.Who produced the new album and how did they effect the album?
Our producer is DD Erhlich.  He has worked with Slipknot and Metallica.  We call him the fifth member of Ninefinger.  He is an amazing musician in his own right.  He just gets our songs and our sound.  He always has great input to make the songs bigger and better.  He also challenges us and our performances and isn’t afraid to check you to get a better sound, take, etc

 

8.Some like to record naked or in the dark with candles , Did you have any strange studio practices?

Caffeine and candy.  We like to have fun and don’t take ourselves too serious so the mood is lighter and we like to joke.  When it is time to lay it down though, its TIME!  Maybe we should try the naked thing too.  I will talk to the guys.

 


9.Of course tell us where to pick up your album and how to learn more about you.

It is on all digital platforms out there.  Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, etc.  You can even get an actualy CD if that is your thing.  We are working on doing some album releases too.  Record sales are booming and are cool for your fans.

 


10.What is your plans now that the new album is out?

Wait out this pandemic and gear up to play LIVE.

HOLLOWED HUMAN DISCUSS THEMSELVES

 


1.Introduce yourself and your band and tell us why we should listen to you. 


hey, we are Shame (guitar), Angst (bass), Ire (drums) and Hope (vocals) our band is Hollowed Human. Our music is deep and rich in emotion.

2.What do you classify your sound as, Who do you tell people you sound like? 


we think for the most part we're pretty original but to give you an idea probably a mix of Marylin Manson, Deftones, Stone Sour, Chevelle and Motionless in White.

3.With digital music in today's world would you vote to keep or eliminate physical media? 


definitly, there is something romantic about having a hard copy, but the convenience of being able to carry around an unlimited amount of digital music wherever you go and creating playlists and sharing music is a way of life these days.

4.What is the reason you decided to be a musician and has that reason paid off? 


(Angst)-mainly I think music finds you, and I've never looked back. It has introduced  me to a new world and I have met some incredibly creative people and shared some of the deepest relationships and friendships through music. (Hope)- yea I agree it's a major part of our lives, you have to sacrifice and make choices to keep the music going. (Shame)- I did it for the chicks 😜 but seriously, it's something that is in you and the desire to express yourself and your thoughts to others who may feel alone or misunderstood and need a hug when no one is there to give it to them. (Ire)-Yup, that about sums it up for me.

5.How do you feel about females in metal getting special attention? Do you feel it is fair? 


No problem, best player best style best sound always wins.

6.In the world climate with hatred being at an all time high and metal being an “ angry” music

Do you think your music contributes to anger and hatred? 


no

7.Are you opposed to religious beliefs or politics being used in music?





We are not opposed to anything that an artist wants to convey to an audience.

8.We have dive into some pretty deep issues here do you think your music sends a message and if so what is it? 


we want  people to be aware and have an open mind but mostly know that they are not alone when they hurt. We all hurt at some point in our lives and it's ok to let your guard down and ask for help.

9.The market has changed and many bands believe that record labels are a thing of the past, with many labels now charging bands to “sign” how do you think a band can make it in todays scene? 


you still need labels, they have the promotional budget and that makes a big difference.  Bands can do a lot of things as far as recordings go but, because there is so much content lots of good bands will never be heard.

10.Why with the thousands of options including netflix , sporting events everything on demand

Why do you think people should take the time to listen to what you have to say in your music? 





because were better!

11.How do you feel about pay to play? Do you think it is fair for a band to have to pay money to play?

Never done it. We've all played gigs for next to nothing just to be heard but never paid.

12.It is fact that you are the talent and the entertainment explain what you think is the most important key to success? 


believing in yourself your product and creativity and lots of perseverance.

13.In country music and even in some cases rock music is written and performed by different people would your band perform a song written by someone else? 


if it's a great song that is taylored towards the band why not?

14.If you are pro female in music are you pro using sex to sell your music? 


sex and music have had a relationship since the beginning.

15.What is your view on the lawsuits against people saying lewd or unprofessional things to women or men and how does that affect an art described as sex drugs and rock n roll ? 


What's lewd to you may not be to us and has nothing to do with music. That's why there are assholes, or is that opinins?

16. Ok lets lighten up a bit. What is your favorite band of all time and why?


Wow, you mean after Hollowed Human? The list it too long, John, Paul, Ringo and George.

17.What would you be doing if you were not in a band? 


dreamimg of being in one

18. Do you have a favorite sports team?

n/a

19.If you could get on stage with anyone dead or alive who would it be?

n/a

20.This is your shot to let loose, Throw down your biggest complaint about the music biz

Very little artist development, just want the quick buck and move on.

INTERVIEW WITH Rioghan


  1. Thank you for inquiring me for interview. The EP ”Blackened Sky” is my first release and I am very excited to see what’s gonna happen with it and how people are going to receive it

Can you tell me about the recording process?

2. The instruments were recorded and programming done by Eemeli Bodde and Jonne Soidinaho in various locations and vocals were recorded with Ville Hautaluoma in his studio in Seinäjoki, Finland. All material is new and made specifically to release as this EP

What do you feel is different between this and you're last release?

 

3. I don’t really count the previous ”Covers I” as a release because it was just two cover songs which I uploaded to Spotify to use as reference tracks for future purposes, so I guess the biggest difference is that this new EP is kind of the first ”real” release with own new material

Are you signed to a label ?

4. With this new EP I’ve gotten together with Inverse Records. They have helped a lot with the releasing process and getting exposure for the EP from their good contacts. All collaborations for composing, production and videos etc. were organized and sponsored by myself.



Can you tell us about your band?

5 Right now as a solo project I really don’t have a band, and the live line-up is also a question mark at this point, but I’ll try to figure that out by the EP release, so hopefully, I could start doing live shows then.

Who inspired and helped you in the recording process?

7. Jonne Soidinaho was the producer for this EP and he also did some of the composing work. He brought my ideas and poetry to living and breathing songs and I couldn’t be more thankful for all the work he’s put through to get this release out.

Did you have any strange studio practices, crazy stories?

8. We were really just being super work-oriented with recording, just being ugly and super efficient and probably kind of boring (as if we could ever be boring). But I have noticed that is a bit strange studio practice. To just be there for recording and nothing more..

Where can we find your work?

9. The EP will be streamable in all platforms in March 10th 2021. First single ”Hollowness” is already out and streamable, and the music video for ”Hollowness” can be found on Youtube. Next single ”Enough” will be out a few weeks from now, 16th December.

To keep up with news and learn more about me, from social medias I use instagram the most, you can find me there as @rioghandarcy

What is the plan for the future?

10. The most important plan for now would be to confirm the live line-up and get some shows. But of course we’ve already scheduled to start recording a full-length album next year.






KOL3RA interview

 


I am Mika Kangas aka KOL3RA. Finnish musician, singer and producer.
2018 I launched project KOL3RA which is hard rock / metal music playing one man band at this time.

I started singing as kid. I sang as I listened to records. When I started doing my own music there was no one to sing the songs so did vocals myself.

 

3.Who was the first singer you saw live that gave you chills?

Finnish singers I guess it was Marco Hietala and when I saw Klaus Meine sing in Helsinki with Scorpions sometime in 90s.

 

4.Many people say heavy music is just screaming, How would you combat that statement?

Well, it's not. It's very technical even if the vocals would be screaming type singing.

 

5.If you growl or do harsh vocals how do you keep your voice after such violent performances?

I don't scream and do really harsh vocals just for that I will be able to sing ll I drop.

 

6. Do you have a warm up routine? Tell u bout it ?

Mainly some scales and breathing exercises.

 

7. Do you think power or performance is more important?

Both equally, if there is not both then the performance will not be complete.

 

8. Who do you think gets unfair vocal praise, someone the world thinks is great but is not? / And who is great but does not get the credit?

Can't think of anyone right now.

 

9.Name your top 5 vocalist

Dio

Halford

Geoff Tate

Marco Hietala

Bruce Dickinson

 

10.Micheal Buble or Jim Gallette? Just testing your skills here

Neither..
