2017-08-30 (News)

With 'Chansons de Geste' Hecq presents a very personal release, conceived as a memorial and dedication to bygone events and individuals. The basic sources for the eleven haunting tracks were original tape recordings Boysen and his family members made decades ago for private use, ranging from piano etudes to classical works of composers like J.S. Bach and Johannes Brahms.
Tracks were restored, to revived and re-arranged. Each tape was digitized to hard disc, loops and patches were extracted from this sound pool, and the collection was recorded once again.
The tapes were taken and played back inside a church where the natural reverb of the location was added and used as the master recording.

Paradise Lost - Medusa

2017-08-23 (News)

It is this hideous creature who Paradise Lost have chosen to be the figureheard for their 15th studio album, as, from a philosophical perspective, she is more than simply a monster. Singer Nick Holmes started his research, intrigued to find greater meaning behind the symbol of Medusa.
"Attempts to avoid looking into her eyes represent avoiding the ostensibly depressing reality that the universe is meaningless", is an idea that was adopted by American novelist Jack London, and a thought that could have easily emerged from Paradise Lost’s lyrics over the past 3 decades.
