69eyes2016 jyrkiInterview with

Jyrki 69 (lead vocals) from The 69 Eyes

Without a shadow of a doubt, all THE 69 EYES disciples will be thrilled by the Helsinki Vampires' long-awaited and new offering once they hear it. On April 22, ‘Universal Monsters’ will finally be unleashed on the world presenting eleven killer Goth'n'Roll songs. The dark rockers from Finland are back – in top form and, as always, with an edge. In fact, they've actually never been gone and never will be, for one way to read the album's title is that Jyrki 69 (vocals), Bazie (lead guitar), Timo-Timo (guitar), Archzie (bass), and Jussi 69 (drums) are timeless creatures themselves, iconic as the monsters of the classic horror movies, being around and enfolding us in their melodic duskiness or rocking our socks off for already over a quarter of a century. Vampire and vocalist Mr Jyrki 69 has a busy schedule, but he kindly took the time to talk to Reflections of Darkness in detail about the band, the fans, music, and the world. 

apocalyptica7Interview with

Perttu Kivilaakso (Apocalyptica) about the opera “Indigo”, written by Perttu Kivilaakso and Eicca Toppinen

Having seeing the “Indigo” opera, a sold-out and enormous production by Finnish National Opera and two members of APOCALYPTICA, I was enthusiastic to reach to the author for an interview. As the places for interviews are not always fancy backstage apartments or rich hotel premises, our interview place is pretty casual - next to Ooppera’s box office, in some quiet corner. A little quite at the beginning, Perttu quickly gets engaged into details and speaks about his brainchild with big enthusiasm; and last but not least, I thank myself for seeing the opera first, as I am able avoid basic questions and ask for specific details. The interview took place on February 13th, 2016. The opera can be watched online throughout 2016 HERE!

whisperingsons2016 02Interview with

Fenne Kuppens (vocals), Sander Hermans (synths) and Sander Pelsmaekers (drums) from Whispering Sons

One of the most promising bands in Europe in the Post Punk genre is clearly WHISPERING SONS. This quintet hails from a small town in Belgium called Houthalen/ Helchteren and their EP ‘Endless Party’ is a masterpiece. They describe their own music as “Belgian post-punk breathing dark and atmospheric sounds”, with a touch of Shoegaze. The singularity of the band comes mainly from the low, dark voice of their (female) singer, Fenne Kuppens, which evokes NICO, LEBANON HANOVER and MRS ARAFNA (NOVEMBER NÖVELET). Our journalist Phil Blackmarquis caught up with the band in Brussels.

nitrodive shocktreatmentInterview with

Albert Norberg (guitar & lead vocals), Robert Johnson (bass & vocals) and Johan Gren (drums & vocals) from NitroDive

Let us be honest - it is impossible to not know the RAMONES. Even if it’s not musicwise, one has surely seen their name and logo on a shirt somewhere. The godfathers of early punk have inspired many bands to even start making music, and the number of covered songs is infinite. Add nine though, because on March 25th, our friends from NITRODIVE will publish their new album SHOCK TREATMENT - a RAMONES cover album with their all-time favorite songs! In February we visited them again in their hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden, to talk about the album in depth.

Interview with

Riccardo Sabetti (vocals, bass, synths) and Enzo Russo (guitar) from Spiral69

After the interview with Andrea Freda we couldn’t help but talk about music, concerts, future plans and tattoos with the other two members of SPIRAL69. Spoiler: it’s long but interesting.  Just check the article out and have fun!
