Mandylon

Mensaje  Guddox el Sáb Jun 14, 2008 5:04 am

Bueno aqui les traigo un grupo.



Mandylon es el nombre, un grupo sueco que hasta ahora solo tienen un album, llamado A Good Excuse and A Yellow Sun. Ellos mismo se clasifican como rock/alternativo/emo. Su musica es muy melodiosa y pegadisa.

Mandylon es un rock oscuro y melódico, que respira tanto desesperación como lujuria sin límites para vivir. Su sombría mezcla de pop y rock duro los pone en algún lugar entre HIM, Tool, Evanescence o algo que podrías llegar a escuchar en tu radio.

Si la desesperación y la soledad tiene un hijo bastardo - entonces su nombre seria Mandylon.

Ya llenando clubes y salas de concierto en el frío paisaje nativo de Suecia - Mandylon está dispuesto a traer su voz triunfante a las almas solitarias del resto del mundo.

"Kill your Kings" y empieza a vivir!



Aqui les presento a los integrantes de la banda.

Una entrevista, esta en ingles sorry :lol:


Mandylon Interview - November 2007
Interview conducted via email by LoriAnn - Eurobands. us

-What does "Mandylon" mean? How did you decide to name the band "Mandylon"?

Mandylon is a made up word which we found suiting to our music. But after some
research we found out about this river/flood in Norway called Mandylon.
After visiting the beautiful place were the river ends, there was no
doubt in the decision. We are Mandylon!

-Tell us a little about yourselves. How did you begin your musical career? Who is Mandylon?

Mandylon is a four piece orchestra, consisting of musicians and true friends. We
come from very different places and our musical/cultural differences
are as wide as a child's smile. But together we do compliment each
other and the musical meetings in our rehearsal room are magic!

-If you were to describe your music to a complete stranger, how would you describe it?

First off, the stranger has to open up his/her heart to us and our music.
This because our music has a way of making hearts bleed, tears flow and
love hurt! We do make emotional music with strong lyrics, but there is
always space for our listeners to place themselves in the middle of
this explosion of sadness.


-Many artists draw inspiration in their music from pop culture, other
musicians, or everyday life.Who or what has inspired your musical
style?


We do listen to a lot of music and we cannot lie to you (or ourselves) that some music does inspire us in some ways. Although we don't rip music off you can probably hear some Bauhaus,
Katatonia, HIM and maybe even some northern folklore in our music. Our everyday life is full of tasks and relations, so off course life itself contributes with its soundtrack.

-When creating your music, do you work collaboratively or do you work
individually and then eventually come together and hash things out together?


The first sketches are often made by Sven himself. With a head full of ideas, pumping around in his brain, he simply plays his acoustic guitar, humming the vocal lines. After his
melodies have etched our minds, we all grab our instruments and add our
visions together. Sometimes it's a hard process, but often we're so
focused and absorbed by the thrill of making music – and that makes it
easy to write.

-If you could do a cover of any song by any band, which song would it be?

We have been talking seriously about doing a cover for a very long time
now, but never manage to find the ultimate tune. You got to have in
mind that a cover really must speak through Mandylon with it's
originally intention. We can only color it with the brushes we've got –
not with the original artist's palette.

-What is your opinion on social networking sites such as Trig and MySpace? Do
you think these sites have helped spread the word about your music to a
broader audience?


Well, this interview hardly would have been done if not one of these networking sites had been so big. For us rather small artists this kind of places is great. Advertising
shows, talking directly to our fans and updating on what's going on in
the Mandylon camp means a lot to us and our friends out there. But on
the other hand there is so much crap on those sites as well, such as
big companies seeing their chance to advertise about shitty,
unnecessary products, and people with the intention to spread bullshit
propaganda and publicity for this or that. And some kids just fill
their pages with huge amounts of videos, pictures and banners. When is
it enough?

-Can you describe the current scene of music in your area of Sweden? How is your band different from the current genres that dominate the scene in your area?

In mid-Sweden where Mandylon has its base, we are considered outsiders I'd
guess. When starting a band, the first and most important thing is to
get a heavy image. So, therefore the heavy rock genres are wide spread
in these areas. Metal, grind, punk etc. is played in every basement.
Mandylon on the other hand is not about image (in the first place),
it's about true emotions captured in real life. And the package
delivered to our listeners should be easy to unpack and apply on their
own life experiences. It is our way of communicating.

-Out of all of your songs, which one would you say is your "favorite" track on your EP? Why?

Oh, that's a tough one. Since we are in a creative process right now, which
includes writing, rearranging and producing, I have no possibility of
looking objectively at our songs.All songs are just great! Maybe it's
up to the readers to decide?!

-How would you describe your live performances to fans that have yet had the opportunity to see you?

Our shows are filled with highlights. We often change our set list but the
dynamics are the same. A strong opening song followed by a great
presentation of what Mandylon is all about. We have been working close
with a visual director and the lightening wraps the whole concept
beautifully. We don't leave that much room for spoken conversation
during a gig. We wish to keep the tempo even between the songs.

-If you were to describe each member of the band in 2 words or less, how would you describe each other?

NICK on:

Emil - Passion
Sven – Girls
Mattias – Beer

EMIL on:

Nick – Word wrestler
Mattias – True entertainer
Sven – Pure genius

MATTIAS on:

Sven – Love impersonate
Emil – Wild heart
Nick – Crazy Swede

SVEN on:

Mattias - Wrapped glory
Nick – Reality's chum
Emil – Lion heart

-How is the recording process coming along for your debut album? Do you have a tentative name for this upcoming album?

We're having a hard time finishing the album. There have been complications
from day one basically. But the result of this hard work is gonna kick
ass! The production is being overseen by Jens Bogren in his studio
"Fascinations Street Studios" where bands such as Opeth, Katatonia, and
Paradise Lost have been working in some way. Some tunes are recorded in
other studios around Sweden, but Fascination Street is almost starting
to feel like our second home. Our management "Vulture and sons" share
the facilities with the studio as well. Our first home is in a basement
in Hedemora where we rehearse and do pre-productions. Haha.

-Which artists are you currently listening to at this time?

The latest work by Steven Wilson (Porcupine tree) is truly amazing. He's
got so much talent in writing (musically and lyrically) and the band is
really shining. And the swedish band KENT just released their latest
album, which was a positive surprise for all of us I guess. Other acts
we have in common are bands such as Katatonia, Mew, and Muse.

-What can you tell fans to expect in the upcoming future?

Mandylon are working day and night to score the greatest deal of all deals. This
work has finally come to fruition and we are planning a release next
spring. Meanwhile, we are out touring and working ..s of new material
for you all to hear really soon.

-During your spare time, what hobbies or tasks do you perform to occupy your free time?

Since we're all busy daytime with school and jobs, the rest of the time is
spent on working with the band. But sometimes you gotta "break" from
this process of evolving Mandylon and find new inspiration. It's great
to just relax and knit socks or whatever.

-If you were to shoot a music video, which song would you choose for your first music video?

There are so many aspects to go through before making a video. What more can
we possibly make out of a song? To combine vision and sound may result
in a totally different experience of the song. So to maintain the
original vision of a song we must a say in the process, but most
certainly we will give it up to a director with artistic visions
similar to ours. I think our song "Nnnwaah" would turn out great as a
rock video. Or perhaps "Mother", or maybe…

-Any last words for your fans?

Thanks for reading to the end of this interview. You are now Mandylonized! Cheers.

Big thanks to Eurobands as well…
