Witchbreed Interview

Sara Letourneau chats with Ruby Roque of Witchbreed

 

Witchbreed has been carving its name into the female-fronted metal scene ever since Ascendance Records announced its signing of the band in 2008.  Today, the Portuguese quintet is circling their country’s club and metal festival circuit, playing its dark and (no pun intended) bewitching brand of progressive black metal.  And, it always helps to have a high-quality album under your belt.  In Witchbreed’s case, this album is “Heretic Rapture,” an outstanding debut and a sure candidate for one of the best femme metal albums of 2009.

Recently, Sara Letourneau of Sonic Cathedral had the chance to interview Witchbreed vocalist Ruby Roque.  The two ladies talked about Ruby’s broad taste in music, dreaming big, and people’s first impressions of Witchbreed’s unconventional musical approach.  Even some big names in metal were thrown around: Waldemar Sorychta, Doro, and Iron Maiden, just to name a few.  Why?  Read on to find out!

Kells Interview

Sara Letourneau chats with Virginie, Patrick, and Jano

 

The French metal scene is buzzing with several female-fronted bands, including the melodic nu metal quartet Kells. This band has been slowly making a name for themselves, thanks to an appearance at the 2008 Metal Female Voices Festival in Belgium and the opening slot on the French leg of Epica’s 2008 headlining tour in Europe. This year already looks to be Kells’ biggest year ever. With a new album “Lueurs” and a busy tour schedule that takes them all over France and neighboring countries such as Switzerland and Spain, Kells has become one of the bright new stars in femme metal.
