Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)
PD: How would you describe yourself or your band as an artist?
VC: The music bleeds together the elements of experimental soundscape doom metal and alternative gothic
PD: Can you tell us briefly about your background – i.e. where you’re from, how you came to make music
VC: Im a British Born Musician previous projects featured with Kerrang, NME, Clash, I aim to deliver tasteful, dark aesthetics with an eccentric horror appeal.
PD: Who and what inspires you to make music, both in terms of musical and other influences? What do you like to write about in your songs?
VC: My collection of musical works lay at the centre of a vortex of swirling fragments of deeply personal memories driven by my inner war and reaction to society’s underlying sadness
Im very influenced by noir horror les Diaboliques is a beautiful one although I guess some people would argue its just early horror and not so noir
The video to my track paranoia was inspired by the German horror Nosferatu it embodies the theme of the very human and egoic tendency to identify one’s self with perpetual negative thoughts which spiral into insanity.
PD: Promoting one’s music is such a challenge these days, especially with so many new artists emerging from bedrooms in the day of the home studio. How is that going?
VC: I think it’s only a challenging if one perceives it that way , I think the conventional root is not always the way , and it’s a blessing now that artists can reach such a wider audience without having a major label on board
PD: And how do you book and promote your live shows and tours? Any performances coming up?
VC: I will be playing some festivals in Germany and Netherlands this year so really looking forward to that
PD: So, what are you working on at the moment?
VC: Im doing some tracks at the moment for comic book movies, a few are well know jazz tracks which I am reworking with Doom Metal electronic style, its really interesting art directing the track and sound scaping , it’s a testaments to great written song that it can be expressed such a different way but still hold the intention
PD: Where can we learn more about you and buy your music/merch online?
