Webzine dedicated to the metal band fronted by girls. We also like ambient,darkwave,rock & electronic music.
Coming from an “artistic” family as Anne states : “my mom was a theater major in college and a director and my dad has written a novel”, her project Upon Wings debuts with the EP “Afterlife” that features the “guest vocalist Brett Hestla (ex-Creed, Dark New Day), master Grammy-nominated mixing engineer Glenn Brown (Kid Rock‘s recording engineer) and guitar work and production from Canadian-based Kevin Jardine”. “When it comes to writing songs and creating a theme with the lyrics, I have to write what is true to me and whatever I’m experiencing at the time”, so Anne it’s a true artist that tries to fullfil her dreams [and maybe he achieved this mission].
After the EP “Emerald” (that it was just an appetizer) we are ready to present you the new Arcana (Arcana - A Peter Bjärgö project (Official)) full-lenght. As Luisa states, “the band is back with an album that is even more far away from their main inspiration, Dead Can Dance, and draws from India, Buddhism, from the roots of humanity, though retaining their gothic/dark flavour”. Although their musical evolution “Arcana once again managed to create an album balanced between darkness and light, shadow and brightess, at the top of dark ambient scene”.
Last call for the industrial lovers (for today at least), attached you see a nice review of the latest release by Belgium dark electro/EBM act Psy’Aviah called “Introspection/Extropection” that was released via Alfa Matrix on 2011. This CD totally mesmerized Luisa, in particular Shakira’s “Timor” cover and about this she says : “The original electro-pop becomes a trance-techno mix, making the song quite unrecognizable”. If you love this genre, you don’t miss this release. More @ (via Psy’Aviah – “Introspection/Extropection” (2011) « Femme Metal Webzine)

Here served the fourth album by the Italian dark ambient band Visioni Gotiche, the band’s pivotal influence is “Claudio Simonetti (composer of most of Dario Argento‘s movies soundtracks) ” among the others. Following is a little except from the review from Luisa : “Visioni Gotiche‘s music is quite simple and basic: these guys prefer to conjure up images, sensations rather than playing long technical solos or singing complicated vocalising”.

Consider what I’ve (re)published here a rarity - a rarity ‘cause the band has changed the name and the entire line up. We’re are talking about Belgium dark electronic rockers Lovelorn (now Lovelorn Dolls) that in occasion of their self-released debut EP “An Intense Feeling of Affection” on 2011. So the singer and mastermind of the project, Kristell Lowagie (Ladyhell), at the time took some time to reply to our questions about the EP and her career.
