hello Marius, first of all I want to thanks for the interview. I’m a fan of your work and lately (2012 January) i found and bought your CD in Oslo (I stayed some weeks in Norway) and that i’m so satisfied, because is almost inconceivable in finding your work right here in Brazil.
GroundCast –to start the interview I would prefer you discuss a bit little bit of your occupation as musician and when regarded the theory to do “the fall of every Season”?
Marius: it can be too dangerous the song is unattainable to seek out in Brazil, however i am glad you ended up with a CD anyway! regarding my musical profession, I started out as a guitar participant in a band, whereas also writing the song. That was an experimental, but vital begin, build up the basic information I wanted to begin working on the fall of every Season. After taking part in in a band for some time, i noticed I might probably do the whole lot in a band undertaking on my own, if the music used to be technically fairly easy. in this approach I could focal point more on songwriting and the layering of song. This also naturally led to the fact that i have not been a visiting musician. basically my career has been about exploring songwriting.
GroundCast – discuss your influences.
M: they have been moderately comprehensive over time. The one key point is depression. it could be melancholy in music, but additionally in films, photography or in basic terms skilled moments. Musically I used to be influenced by means of early in addition to extra recent loss of life-doom metallic, early Opeth, ultimately also tune with a more publish rock-ish expression like Sigur Rós and Mogwai, and the conceptual processes of older progressive rock.
GroundCast – Why Dom metallic? What takes your attention to this style?
M: neatly, doom metal is a pretty large term, however depression, as I’ve talked about, has always been very inspiring to me, and throughout the genre of doom metal one could no doubt find quite a few it. the way in which the song is expressed makes it top for conveying moods of despair, with its gradual atmospheric riffs and expressive leads. additionally it is an excellent platform for contrasts in track. by means of coupling mellow acoustic elements to doom metallic, I succeed in an awfully efficient and powerful dynamic. i am now not too considering genre conventions, though, and with the brand new album i guess I’ve stepped slightly bit far from the rather pure expression of doom from the first album, but the temper of despair remains to be very much present.
GroundCast – “From below” has a deep atmosphere and songs submerged in emotions like “Sisyphean” and “get away of the Dove”, for me the better songs from the album. How does it appeared? How was once create the songs and the concept that in the back of the album?
M: The atmosphere and emotional manner probably comes in part from the fact that this venture is mine and mine most effective. it’s me. i’m a melancholic individual, and i all the time attempt to make and document music that sounds real. track like this needs humanity and mustn’t sound too polished, individually, and “From beneath” certainly does not sound polished in any respect. Lyrically the album is the story of a dysfunctional domestic, dealing with topics of abuse and loss. The music used to be written first, five songs to be viewed as a solidarity, and i then spent a while arising with a narrative that would match the song’s environment and progression, whereas also having potentialities for different interpretations.
GroundCast – how are you going to describe the steel/doom metallic scene?
M: on the whole i’d say that the steel scene may be very so much alive and exciting at the present time, especially when fascinated by lesser known bands. the best way tune is spread now makes it more straightforward to discover some real gems. The willingness to combine components from quite a lot of genres and subgenres seems to be more in style than ever and makes for fascinating track. in relation to the doom metal scene this additionally appears to be the case, despite the fact that rather just a few bands appear to be doing precisely the identical factor they have been doing a while ago (which isn’t necessarily dangerous if the songwriting is top quality). both way this kind of music appears to get extra attention than ever prior to, which is superb.
GroundCast – every artist that I interview I wish to do that question. What do you think about MP3 and web? nowadays is so easy take the songs illegally and in countries like Brazil is so expensive to buy CDs or DVDs (and a few bands don’t attain right here)?
M: I totally remember the fact that this is the fact of these days. CDs don’t stand an opportunity in opposition to the convenience of downloading music (despite the fact that I in my opinion choose having bodily copies of serious tune, with the cover art and the whole lot). The web is among the reasons why the autumn of every Season obtained widespread within the first place, and on-line streaming products and services seem to be the longer term for song distribution. It makes sense. but i am hoping that some lovers will nonetheless want physical formats like CDs and vinyl, as i think they’re somewhat more different than their digital counterparts.
GroundCast – Are you keen on any other venture/band? I keep in mind that you have got or had concerned with Nyctanthous.
M: Nothing too serious but, however i’m lively in a venture where i’m primarily simply being a drummer going to band follow. i do not write the songs. it is a fresh destroy from what I do within the Fall of each Season. I even have a couple of different band initiatives within the works where i’ve some ingenious regulate, and these can be less metallic than i am used to.
GroundCast – not too long ago you launched the amazing “Amends”,i can say that could be a nice one to the album of the 12 months. Why did it take see you later to be launched?
M: I really enjoy that! well, it is a combination of a couple of causes, in point of fact. many of the song used to be made a long time in the past. I did spend a number of time on writing and recording the vocals, though. I felt like they wanted extra consideration than they obtained on “From beneath”, and it took me tons of work to give you something that i assumed took the music to the subsequent level. at the comparable time I began searching for a somewhat greater label, and that was once additionally a process that ended up being time-consuming. This was also the case with the art work, which went via several stages earlier than reaching its finished kind. after all the album’s remaining manufacturing acquired a remodel and acoustic session drums have been recorded by using Jörg Uken at Soundlodge Studios.
GroundCast – The atmosphere of the brand new album is excellent. can you talk about your composition process?
M: thank you! i’m glad you suppose so. As I touched upon to start with, the songwriting is more vital than technical performance within the song, so I spent numerous time on constructing the music and layering the sound step by step. environment and contrasts between heavy and mellow are extra important than typical structures, and this most often ended in lengthy songs with each acoustic and distorted riffs, and a relatively cinematic really feel, for my part. in any case I wrote the lyrics and recorded vocals, with emphasis on having an excellent amount of each easy vocals and growls.
GroundCast – I learn nice evaluations (and wrote one), did you predict so many certain feedbacks?
M: I had confidence in the truth that Amends is an extraordinarily solid album, however I for sure failed to are expecting that reviewers can be so unified in their response. The comments has been overwhelmingly certain and i could not be more happy about that. After having spent a lot of time on a venture that could be very personal for me, hearing great things being said about it manner a lot. it may well confidently additionally persuade more individuals to take a look at the tune.
M:it can be indeed beautiful early, however I’ve already started working on new stuff and i’m planning for the future of the band. i have a bit of of latest material with the intention to kind the basics of a new unlock, so i’m guessing there will not be another 6 yr look ahead to the following album. i’m also hoping to begin doing a little reside gigs with a full band in the no longer too far-off future. each of this stuff are of their beginning degrees, though, however the continuation of the autumn of every Season is looking exciting.
GroundCast – Do you suppose in do an extended tour or one thing like that?
M: we will see. maybe at some point. at first I should work on hanging collectively the are living band. Secondly there’ll have to be some excessive rehearsing for gigs. third, there will most likely handiest be an extraordinarily restricted amount of gigs here and there, to peer how things work out.
GroundCast – well, thanks on your time Marius, now this space is yours to claim one thing to GroundCast’s readers and for the Brazilian fanatics.
M: thank you very a lot for your hobby and for a nice interview! make sure to check out Amends if you have not heard it, and unfold the word in the event you just like the track!
