Katatonia: Interview & Live Videos 10/4/13

We would never pass a chance to sit down with the congenial and hospitable Jonas Renkse from Katatonia, so when they came to Denver again, we were very pleased to follow up with him on many things Katatonia. We had a chance to discuss this third U.S. / Canadian tour in the past year, as well as review a few details of their past North American tour. We were able to get a very insightful scoop into their 10th anniversary celebration of ‘Viva Emptiness’ and its upcoming remastered edition and special U.K. shows with Lacuna Coil and Paradise Lost (celebrating their 25th anniversary) in what is being called The Tragic Illusion Tour. We then caught up with the experimentation experience involved in the reworked version of ‘Dead End Kings’ as the final product available through their ‘Dethroned and Uncrowned’ album and its influence on the band’s identity. We were also able to discuss many things Jonas while conversing about his recent project collaboration with Bruce Soord and their band Wisdom of Crowds. We could not resist discussing Bloodbath either and the current state of the new material and the infamous divulging of the new singer. For last, we did not forget to explore the band’s future plans.

Anathema Interview & Photos 9/24/13

We sat down with Daniel Cavanagh backstage in order to catch up on all things Anathema. We briefly reviewed the etymology of the band’s name plus its correct pronunciation. We discussed what other musical avenues are left for Anathema to explore along with the future progressions in sight and upcoming elements for the band’s sound. We also had a chance to get Danny’s impressions from the unique Bulgarian show at Plovdiv’s Philippopolis Roman Theater that was filmed and recorded for their ‘Universal’ live release. We then touched on their latest acoustic shows in Europe with Antimatter and how they came about and future expectations. We also had a very productive chance to discuss Anathema’s upcoming work and touring plans followed by the ‘positive nepotism’ factor that makes up the band’s nomenclature and its effect on their dynamics. We also had a chance to explore a more personal side from Danny and his connection to Norway and its culture. For last, Danny commented on past, present, and future collaborations, including Mariangela from Tristania, as well as Mick and Antimatter.
