10,000 Years Announce Album Details for II

Posted in Whathaveyou on April 15th, 2021 by JJ Koczan

10,000 Years tracking riffs at Sunlight Studio — the place that gave birth to the grittiest of Swedish death metal; see Entombed, Dismember, Grave, on and on — is a proposition that only sounds enticing as far as I’m concerned. The Västerås-based trio will issue II in the coming months through Interstellar Smoke RecordsOgo RecordsDeath Valley Records and Olde Magick Records, and the cover art — very Empire Strikes Back as it is — has just been posted along with the tracks that will be included. I don’t know about you, but I’m willing to wager “Gargantuan Forest” and “March of the Ancient Queen” will sound pretty big. That’s just fine.

Looking forward to hearing this one, if that even needs to be said, and though no audio is out yet, you can still hear their self-titled debut (review here) at the bottom of this post, with hopes of more to come before the new release.

1. Descent
2. Gargantuan Forest
3. Spinosaurus
4. The Mooseriders
5. Angel Eyes

BRNO Premiere Video for “You Are the Moon” From Self-Titled Debut

Posted in Bootleg Theater on April 8th, 2021 by JJ Koczan

brno sergio ch

Conceived and executed remotely, one has to imagine BRNO have never had all three members in the same room. Does that make them a project instead of a band? I don’t think it matters, but it’s a debate for a different time anyway. The outfit’s debut release, self-titled and out through South American Sludge and Interstellar Smoke Records, includes seven cuts and introduces an atmospheric sprawl born intentionally of blending goth and heavy rock, with the ever-prolific Sergio Chotsourian (current of Soldati and solo work, formerly Los Natas, Ararat, etc.) in the Andrew Eldritch/Peter Murphy role as vocalist while Lucio Ceretti (El Huésped) handles guitar and programming/keys and the Czech Republic-based Martin P?ikryl of post-punkers The Prostitutes brings further guitar contribution. Maybe that’s the shred you hear in the standout solo of “Sick Boy,” I don’t know.

The order of the day across the 42-minute outing is chug, and in a song like the later “Wails,” the three-piece use that to blur the line between heavy goth and post-metal as keyboard melodies surround a steady-rolling groove and Chotsourian‘s vocals. In comparison, the prior “Daddy’s Home” is downright danceable, and plainly intended to be so, but the record already took its time in opening cut “Broken Wings” to introduce these elements — the spaciousness of the mix, the ringing lead lines topping said chug,Brno Brno the keys, the straightforward but necessary programmed drums, and so on — so nothing feels out of place or like it’s coming from nowhere. The aforementioned “Sick Boy” recalls Fields of the Nephilim in its dramatic chorus and underlying keyboard line, and the subsequent “Fuck Hate” serves as the longest track at 11:50 and is hypnotic in its unfolding in addition to being a more patient presentation — the two are no doubt related — and its a precursor to the also relatively-extended “You are the Moon” (9:11), which waits on the other side of “Daddy’s Home” and serves as the apex of BRNO‘s BRNO with its resurgent riffy core and less-manic but still forceful guitar soloing, the lyrics a gothy romance with sunshine chasing the moon.

Only closer “Pregnancy” follows “You Are the Moon,” and though by no means insubstantial at a little under six minutes long, it is an instrumental intended to bolster atmosphere more than broaden the palette or serve as the culmination. Of course the title is evocative in itself, a portending maybe of things to come from BRNO as a project (or band) as and if they move forward from this beginning toward further creation. I don’t know that that’s happening and I don’t know that it’s not, but taken especially as a pandemic-era happening, the advent and realization of this debut not only finds Chotsourian exploring a side he’s never publicly shown before as an artist, but doing so with a surrounding awareness of the tenets of genre and how to enact those without falling into the trap of base loyalism. And for those who might listen to the full album streaming at the bottom of this post, his lyrics are also in English, and it’s been a long time since that last happened.

The video for “You Are the Moon” premieres below. Culled together from various presumably public domain sources as it is, it still serves to highlight the track, which in turn is a highlight of the record from which it comes.

I hope you enjoy:

BRNO, “You Are the Moon” official video premiere

Buenos Aires 2020:

Lucio Ceretti tells his idea about a song to Sergio Ch. (Los Natas), who goes back to him with another, a full album. That’s how BRNO was born, with a back and forth of samples, recordings and vibes WeTranfers from studio to studio, with multritracks, mixes and masters along with the production of videos for every song of the album, done with wicked archive content from the dark pirate side of internet pages.

Martin Prikyl (The Prostitutes) joined in collaboration from Prague.

In a way, the pandemic shortened distances and helped shape the debut album, BRNO.

The first song we had was BROKEN WINGS, which was conceived spontaneously from a one take, and lopped back and forth. Followed by WAILS, a silent, broken, rotten song BRNO is a city, dark, questioned, subordinated. BRNO is furious light and darkness, an intimate collapse from each of its members reflected in the music and poetry.

Join the feast.

The Obelisk Questionnaire: Beatriz Castillo of Cruzeiro & Misty Grey

Posted in Questionnaire on March 22nd, 2021 by JJ Koczan


The Obelisk Questionnaire is a series of open questions intended to give the answerer an opportunity to explore these ideas and stories from their life as deeply as they choose. Answers can be short or long, and that reveals something in itself, but the most important factor is honesty.

Based on the Proust Questionnaire, the goal over time is to show a diverse range of perspectives as those who take part bring their own points of view to answering the same questions. To see all The Obelisk Questionnaire posts, click here.

Thank you for reading and thanks to all who participate.

The Obelisk Questionnaire: Beatriz Castillo of Cruzeiro & Misty Grey

How do you define what you do and how did you come to do it?

I am a singer. Since I was a child I sang when I was in bed instead of sleeping and my mother scolded me for it. I guess it is something natural for me, progressively I was doing things related to music, because it has always been something that has made me fell good, it was not something decided, it just happened.

In school and high school I joined the choirs. After that, in the following years I stopped practicing music for a long time, although I never stopped attending, I followed numerous shows, dedicated myself to writing records reviews and concert chronicles as well as being a photographer covering those events.

A few years later I started with a friend to do music sessions as a DJs set under the name of Vinuum Sabati, later it turned into a series of mini underground festivals in Madrid, Spain, giving a place for national bands to which we wanted to give support and visibility.

After that, I started with a small music distribution and event promoter, I created the idea of a record-store day for extreme music in Madrid and also began to be an important promoter of underground shows in the city, always in communion with my friends. We supported each other since we did not do it selflessly, we did not earn a penny with it, it was just for fun.

At the end of 2014 I joined as singer of the Classic Doom Metal band Misty Grey . This past November 2020,the label Interstellar Smoke Records released the last work of the band called Chapter II on vinyl.

At the same time Barren Plains born, it was a BlackenedDeathMetalPunk band, where I played the bass and sang too, The band split off in 2016 after recording our first album never released. During the confinement I decided to release four of the six recorded songs, the idea consist in a recycled cassettes on a DIY edition that came out last November 2020.

Little over two years ago I moved from Madrid to Galicia and I have been here since then. I left Misty Grey in 2019 and soon began as a singer in CRUZEIRO, Doom / Stoner band from A Coruña, in the North of Spain. We recorded our first album in September 2020 and now we are looking for a label to release it.

I collaborated with Rockin´Ladies photographic project, with the objective of manifesting, visualizing and normalizing the high number of women in punk, rock and metal in Spain and also did the picture for the cover of Pillars of Salt LP, released by Balmog.

So I don’t really know how I got here, but I think there is no return.

Describe your first musical memory.

It is not easy to specify… I remember that in my house always sounded a lot of music but I remember that Pink Floyd caught my attention since I was a little child, my father was a fan of theirs of music.

Perhaps the most marked thing was when we visited relatives, my cousin Oscar was a super fan of Iron Maiden, I was about six years old and his music caught my attention, it was like a ritual when he went to the bathroom and played the Iron Maiden Music on the cassette at full volume, my cousin Cris and I (she is her sister) took the opportunity to go to her room, which we were forbidden to enter, that made me feel even more curious every time I went inside. Every time we did that expedition I was freaking out with all the flags and posters of Eddie in his room… my cousin Cris stayed at the door crying (she’s a year younger than me, poor Cris), she was afraid to enter the room with so much monster. I guess if that prepared me because after being a teenager about 11 I asked him to loan me the Iron Maiden LPs.

Describe your best musical memory to date.

Probably people who I have shared stage with, specially when Misty Grey shared stage with Manilla Road, we were their opening act in Madrid, after finishing our performance Mark “The Shark” Shelton was waiting at the foot of the stage. When I came down from the stage he was talking to me, and he left me a few words that I will always carry with me.

And watching concerts, whenever I have been able to be in the front row watching an Iron Maiden concert, I always end up crying with emotion when I see them and sing their songs live.

When was a time when a firmly held belief was tested?

I thought for a long time that I did not like cats, that they were an evil and conspiratorial being who dominated human beings in order to enjoy their indifference towards us, I love animals, but I do not know why I was so suspicious of them, perhaps by ignorance.

One day some friends asked me the favour of letting me their two cats because they went to work to London for a month, and they had no one to leave them with, I accepted and for a month I was with my dog and their cats… at first I did not know how they worked and how I should act with them, but they made it very easy for me and I had a great time discovering that new world that opened before my eyes, also one of the cats and I established a bond very quickly and very strong.

I realized that I was totally wrong and shortly after that I adopted a kitten that came from the south of Spain and now we are a very happy roommates.

Where do you feel artistic progression leads?

As long as something enjoyed will lead to good things with your bandmates and even to new experiences, but if it becomes a career of goals in which enjoying or doing what you really like does not matter.

I guess it becomes something that is not progress or at least as I see it.

How do you define success?

When you do what you propose, you are satisfied with it, everything flows, and you do not get bored or tired.

What is something you have seen that you wish you hadn’t?


Describe something you haven’t created yet that you’d like to create.

My own personal project alone. A photography lab in my house and a random craft workshop, I like to be entertained with that kind of thing, but I don’t have space at home or have time, now with the COVID-19 I just need space.

What do you believe is the most essential function of art?

It is another language, another way of expressing and communicating, spitting and letting go from within, I think it is something healing as a therapy that we need to do to a greater or lesser extent.

Something non-musical that you’re looking forward to?

Right now freedom, go out to the mountains / fields for days (we have perimeter closure since October).

Return soon to see my friends and family spend hours talking, touching, hugging, kissing yours (culturally, and emotionally we are like that, and it is a necessity for many) I have not seen my people for more than a year.

The Obelisk Questionnaire: Alex Risberg of 10,000 Years

Thank you for reading and thanks to all who participate.

The Obelisk Questionnaire: Alex Risberg of 10,000 Years

How do you define what you do and how did you come to do it?

I’m a musician who plays in a band. I just look at it as playing metal, basically, and I have been doing just that for about seventeen years now. Music has always been an incredibly huge part of my life and it’s something that’s always there. I think about it all the time, I listen to it and play it myself as often as I possibly can. I started my first band in 2004 with my brother and a couple of friends and I’ve been playing in bands from then on. It’s just something that I absolutely love to do and I can’t see myself ever not doing it.

Describe your first musical memory.

My first really vivid musical memory, that I actually remember for myself and haven’t been told by a parent or something, is my dad buying me and my brother a copy of the Kiss-collection “Greatest Kiss” back in -97. I’m sure there are several other instances where music played a part in my early life, since my dad’s a drummer and there was always music playing at his place, but this is something that I know for sure is my memory, and mine alone. I distinctly remember sitting on the floor of my dads old apartment and putting that CD on, and when “Detroit Rock City” kicked in… Wow. There was no turning back from that. That record blew me away in so many ways and besides getting me truly, deeply hooked on music it made me a lifelong member of the Kiss Army.

Describe your best musical memory to date.

In 2012 my old band Pike released our debut album, To Cross The Great Divide, but since we all lived in different parts of Sweden we unfortunately couldn’t play live as much as we might have wanted to. But one of the shows we did play that year was so epic it made up for the rest.

My buddy David Johansson from Kongh told me they had gotten offered the support slot for Baroness show in Stockholm that July. They had turned it down but he had told the promoter about Pike instead, and sure enough we got an email that same day. This was like two-three days before the show was scheduled. Of course we said yes, Baroness being one of our favourite bands, and then we scrambled to get the logistics together, being so spread out, plus we hadn’t played together at all for about three months then. But everything went great, above and beyond any expectations, and it was probably the best show we ever played. And just to be there, to get that opportunity, everything about it was just so amazing. It was our first really big show and that’s something I’ll never forget.

When was a time when a firmly held belief was tested?

I absolutely, truly believed that “Danzig Sings Elvis” would be amazing. But alas, that was not to be. Someone needs to give Glenn a stern talking to.

Where do you feel artistic progression leads?

Hopefully to more art and more music and in the long run to a better, more caring society. On a personal level I hope it leads to a deeper understanding of my own, and others, art and to a more profound expression of that art.

How do you define success?

If you’re doing something that makes you happy, that’s pretty much it for me. Like with 10,000 Years, I know we’re never going to take over the world, but we really, really love what we do and we have found a home in this band and with each other. The fact that other people that we’ve never met from all over the world seem to like what we do as well is just insane to me and I appreciate that so deeply. So in my mind we’ve already achieved all the success that we’ll ever need.

What is something you have seen that you wish you hadn’t?

I can’t really think of something that I would like to have unseen actually, at least not in any personal way. But there’s a lot of shitty movies and concert footage I might as well never have seen.

Describe something you haven’t created yet that you’d like to create.

The ultimate riff, the ultimate song or the ultimate album is always in ones future and I always look forward to creating the next attempt at that.

What do you believe is the most essential function of art?

To bring happiness and joy to people and to bring people together and in the long run hopefully improve our collective society.

Something non-musical that you’re looking forward to?

I am looking forward to this pandemic hopefully coming to an end soon. So wash your hands, keep your distance and take the vaccine when it becomes available to you!

Elder Druid Sign to Interstellar Smoke Records; New Album Later This Year

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 3rd, 2021 by JJ Koczan

Heartfelt best wishes to Jacek Trepko of Polish imprint Interstellar Smoke Records, who the other day posted to social media a few genuinely horrifying pictures of the twisted metal clump that used to be his automobile before it was in the kind of crash from which one is lucky to be carried away, let alone walk. Trepko was in the hospital at the time but noted recovery under way, and of course I hope that that’s exactly how it proceeds.

The news isn’t all awful, however, as the label has picked up Elder Druid out of Belfast, Northern Ireland. The band’s second album, Golgotha (review here), was released in early 2020, and it seems that Interstellar Smoke will put out the follow-up sometime later in 2021. Of course that’s subject as everything is to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, so who the hell knows anything about anything — if that even needs to be said at this point — but on the most basic level, it’s cool to see a band who’ve been working hard get noticed for that and have someone behind them to press a record. Whenever it might show up.

Elder Druid announced the signing and then followed up with a few words about Trepko‘s auto accident. You’ll find their words below:



We’re delighted to announce that we have signed a record deal with Polish stoner/doom label Interstellar Smoke Records.

We’ll be releasing album #3 on vinyl through the label later this year. Very exciting times ahead. Many thanks to Jacek Trepko.

After announcing that we had signed to Interstellar Smoke Records yesterday, we woke up to the news that Jacek had been involved in a serious car crash.

His car was destroyed, a lot of records were damaged and he was very lucky to make it out alive.

If anyone would like to help the guy out, head over to the Big Cartel page below and pick up some vinyl from the other bands on the roster:

10,000 Years Sign to Interstellar Smoke Records; Recording New Album Next Month

Posted in Whathaveyou on January 25th, 2021 by JJ Koczan

Recorded in June 2020 and released in July 2020, the self-titled debut LP from Sweden’s 10,000 Years (review here) has been picked up for release by Olde Magick Records. That was months ago, but still good news, if not entirely surprising — that’s kind of what happens to cool records that get a decent response these days. To go along with that, however comes word that the Västerås trio will also head back into the studio next month to record a follow-up to the self-titled for Interstellar Smoke Records, continuing the sci-fi plotline detailed below.

Will the Albatross make it back from that other dimension? Well, if they’re going to try, I might suggest creating a coherent subspace bubble by routing plasma energy back through the bussard collectors and taking power from auxiliary systems. There’s no guarantee, but it might work just long enough to get them where they need to go in crossing one dimensional plane for another. Just a suggestion though, of course.

The PR wire brought word:

10000 years

10,000 YEARS sign with Interstellar Smoke Records!

10,000 Years are very happy to announce that we have signed with the mighty Interstellar Smoke Records for the vinyl release of our upcoming first full-length album.

We will enter Studio Sunlight in February to record eight songs which will tell the continued tale of the ill-fated class III exploration vessel “Albatross” and its crew.

More news and announcements regarding the album, artwork, release date, various formats etc will follow in due time.

“10,000 Years” Story:

The crew of the terran class III exploration vessel “Albatross” have been assigned the mission of exploring the Milky Way and nearby galaxies in search of a new planet for the human race to possibly inhabit.

During its journey the “Albatross” accidentally, and without the crews knowledge, travels through a wormhole and the ship and its crew ends up on a strange, new planet undocumented through the annals of earthly science. Unbeknownst to the crew, the planet in fact exists in another dimension, one inhabited by ancient gods of unknown origin and purpose. The most powerful among them known only as the Green King.

While on the planet the crew encounter strange creatures and deities as they try to find a way to return home. After much labouring they finally make it off the planet and start their journey from suns beyond back to earth.
