No Man's Land Anthem with Holy Machine - An Interview

De Paris, vem o shoegaze gélido com ares oitentistas com os dois pés na cold wave alternando esse ar denso com barulho caótico, nitidamente fazendo conexões com a família Skywave. Este é o Holy Machine.

Experimente imediatamente "No Man´s Land Anthem" primeiro EP dos caras ou ainda o novo single "Never Turn Your Back" que serve como prenúncio do que será o primeiro álbum do Holy Machine.

Barulho gélido para estourar tímpanos e cortar pulsos.

***** Interview with Holy Machine ******

Q. When did Holy Machine start? Tell us about the history...
Damien : We started this project in 2013. We were both in a band called but we started to get bored of it. So one day, we took a drink at home, start playing some shits and it actually worked. So we decided to start a brand new project. We played live in a duo format for 2 years, then, we took Quentin as a keyboard player/machines.

Q: Who are your influences?
Damien : I think you just have to listen Holy Machine to understand that we are clearly into cold wave and shoegazing stuff. We really wanted to mix both, like using big chorus bass, wall of sould, huge reverbs, untombed voices. I actually think it works good.

Kent : I don't know if you can listen it on this project, but we a also huge fans of metal.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
We are two answering so 5 is not enough, so pick up the most relevant for you…
Damien :
- Nine Inch Nails - With Teeth
- Of The Wand And The Moon - The Lone Descent
- A Place To Bury Strangers - Exploding Head
- Joy Division - Close
- Slowdive - Souvlaki

Kent ;
- Pink Floyd - The Wall
- Neil Young - Harvest
- Metallica - …And Justice For All
- Behemoth - The Satanist
- The Beatles - White Album

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Damien : So so mad. We FUCKIN love to play live, we give ourselves to much.

Kent : Yeah we like to perform sweaty and with a lot of energy, like a bit crazy. And obviously, the ultimate goal is to get laid and the end of show !

Q. How do you describe Holy Machine sounds?
Damien : We like to say that we play a "wild coldwave". It's the result of the mix of styles we wanted to get. We compose our songs in a cold wave way but with lot of shoegaze sound elements. You can easily listen it in our song "Never Turn Your Back", the guitar is so agressive and noisy, but the form stays more into 80's stuff.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Damien : We are totally DIY in recording but we have the chance to have Kent into this band. He is a fuckin genuis to make this kind of recording sound good. For the process, nothing really unconventional.

Kent : Thank You You are so lovely Damien ! I do my best, trust me I spent hours watching professional tutorials on the internet and looking for the best pulgins and effects.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Damien : Wow, there are so much new awesome bands ... I really loved the solo project M!R!M.

Kent : And also some really good post-black metal stuff such as Regarde Les Hommes Tomber a promising french band.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
Damien : Actually, we already did a cover of "Under the milky way" of The Church. I personaly want to cover "Shackles and chains" of Second Glance.

Kent : I’d loved to make a cover of a huge metal song … like O Father, O Satan, O Sun by Behemoth but in our way.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
Damien : Our first album is fully recorded, we found an awesome label that follow us from our first show, so i guess our plan is to launch it real and play it live as much as we can !

Q: Any parting words?
Kent : Today, The weather is shitty in France and the girls are cold. So have you got any plans for us to come and play in Brasil ?
