Hetze: We all work with homeless people on a daily basis and we try to be actively involved in their struggle.
In the beginning, this forced time-out was a bit of fun, but by now it has become almost impossible to maintain. We really miss the contact with people and the energy of live shows. We released a split EP with Trappist. We didn't wait for the pandemic to end to release new music. Because there weren't any live shows, people wanted to support the bands and bought their music. This motivated us to keep going. We're currently writing songs for a new full album. During the first lockdown, when we weren't allowed to rehearse together, we had some fun making Hetze mouthmasks and selling them for a worthy cause. We are blessed with an extremely creative singer, who also knows how to sow and to tinker. Each member of the band also recorded some footage, which we turned into a promo video. That way we weren't just being idle and it also gave us an opportunity to promote our new split EP, which was released right before the lockdown. This might be a tip. Where does your band want to stand for? It doesn't necessarily always have to be music.

Lacrimosa: There were times when I could hardly believe that I would ever be able to finish the album.
Lacrimosa has delivered another beautiful album with ‘Leidenschaft’, in their well-known mix of gothic with symphonic orchestrated metal. We had the chance to discuss the record with mastermind Tilo Wolff, and the man appears to be quite philosophical as well as very religious. He denies that the record revolves entirely around the corona pandemic - as we initially thought - although he does address the subject. But let's just listen to what he has to say.

Irdorath: I still don’t understand how participation in peaceful rallies can be repressed with prison sentences.
