I experienced four excellent bands though I focused on one band in particular. Ignea deserved and deserve all the attention they get and I really, really hope to see them again rather sooner than later with a full set. That doesn’t mean, I didn’t like the other bands, I just had my priorities with them.
SETYØURSAILS is a really interesting, promising and fresh band of four sympathetic musicians with a very impressive second album after their already powerful debut with “Enough” in 2018. Jules Mitch’s unique vocal style and personality surely dominates and carries the sound of both albums.
Shockwave 2023 was a well put together show which showcased very interesting Asian bands and the headliners offered a memorable show. The line-up included Born of Osiris, Within Destruction, Knosis and Prompts.
Some of you might already have read our interview with Justine Daaé, vocalist and mastermind behind Elyose, one of the most promising French metal projects. Elyose's newest release Déviante is the fifth studio album and was released on February 9th, 2023. The album is a sophisticated mix between Modern Metal and Nu Goth with a touch of Metalcore, all lyrics come in French. It contains nine brand new songs plus a “radio mix”.
Obscuro had the honour to virtually interview Justine Daaé during the release process of her band Elyose’ new album Déviante. Justine is a great artist with one of the best female vocals not only in the French Metal World.
Winter Madness is coming. It is not the first time it is going to take place and yet, somehow I managed to miss it all over the years. Gladly, I change it this year and am curious about the event. So here they are, my findings to rouse your appetite for the Winter Madness on 9th and 10th December at Jahnhalle Hirschhaid nearby Bamberg, Franconia. A crowd of roughly 500 heads should get the venue decently packed which makes it a mid-sized venue rather than one of the big concert halls.
