Fuck I love this band! Void Mother by Obscure Sphinx Before we get to talk about the music, can you tell us a bit about your personal lives before the band and how the five of you got together? We were born for it, and standing there on the stage feels like nothing else in the world. Photo by For my own sake, perhaps what I love most about Obscure Sphinx is how instantly recognisable their music is. So you can say that the influence was back and forth with the cover concept and the music. So that this time this doll captures the emotions from this certain piece of music and words. So the music that comes out is basically parts of all of us transformed into notes. It lives from the northern part of South America up to the central United States.

Upperside of the male forewing is pale gray with black markings and a black line in the center running from the base to about three-fourths of the wing length. We add images, ideas, words and the sculpture starts to take shape. The moth has always been one of the main graphical motifs for the band due to our name. Love this album, as well as Void Mother. So we have no other choice but to sail that boat on our own and do it as best as we can. People are interested in how that actually sounds, and the media is interested because this makes great headlines.

After the European Decimation Tour, we will start to write the new album. She is very personal with every doll she makes. Especially that the doll we wanted to use was designed for something else completely and Klaudia captured certain emotions in her. And Epitaphs sits very well deservedly at 9. And then we met somewhere in a cold coal mine… But honestly, the band was started by Mateusz our drummer and his brother Bartek, somewhere in 2008 I suppose, then Blady the bassist joined the club, later on Yony the second guitarist and finally Zosia the singer. Only a few make it and they are really great, but tens of thousands of other bands still play in the garage.

Her oddly occasionally even uncomfortably intimate delivery, sometimes whispered, sometimes crooning, sometimes shrieking like the teeth of a whirlwind, can be as soothing as it is punishing, switching from a subtle caress to a razorblade kiss without warning. Drums recorded at Radio Gdańsk Studio Other instruments and vocals recorded at Sounds Great Promotion Studio Additional vocals and choir recorded at Progresja Studio 1st edition; comes in a 6-panel Digipak with a transparent tray in the middle panel; no booklet, no lyrics. Can you tell us about the influences leading to that change, and how your composition process differed from the first and second record? For Obscure Sphinx it has always been a mixture of just jamming together and writing some bits and pieces at home. Or are you looking for some help through the process? And do you have any special rituals to prepare for live performances? It always seems to be challenging to transfer the emotions and aura behind this kind of music into live action. Adults are on wing year round in the tropics, southern Florida and southern Texas. So next year is going to be dedicated to that mostly—except maybe one more euro-tour and some festivals and off shows. Many times we feel this much harder than anything else—we cry, get sad, get really ecstatic.

And of course we think about the cover during the writing process, so that it influences the music too. As unique your first album was, the second one seemed way different and more musically complex to my ears, with more dark and doomy inspiration in the tracks. You feel the energy when you are playing for 50 people in a small crowded club and you feel the energy when you play for 5,000 people on some festival. Photo by Oskar Szramka , a five-piece band from Warsaw, Poland, is recognized for their dark, ambiguous sound and doomy, mysterious concepts transferred through their unique 8-string guitar tones and 6-string bass rhythms. We get some credit for being different—having a female singer, 8 string guitars, long sludgy songs. The species was first described by in 1775.

You can find Obscure Sphinx at:. Creative freedom is really great, but the road to success is really hard. So expect the new album hopefully in 2015. I mean of course we have to practice a lot to deliver the greatest performance we can, but we do what we love here. As for how the specifics of Epitaphs hold up when measured against the magnificence of Void Mother? As one of the few bands playing this mix of experimental music, do you feel over the past few years this kind of music succeeded in getting more attention and support in Poland and in the whole of Europe generally, since when you started playing? How much did this painting influence your ideas and recording process? The bass is always easy to hear and identity, and the vocals are just oh so perfect.

Identification: Upperside of the female forewing is dark gray to brownish gray with black markings on the basal half and near the center of the costa; some females are nearly all black.

Previously everyone was involved in other bands, most of us have played rock and roll for more than 10 to 20 years. We play along with music, listen to it and as it starts to shape, we sculpt. But let me get back to the beginning. Females have almost uniformly gray forewings with black markings on the basal half and near the center of the costa, although some are nearly all black. How hard was it to make it so far on your own, and do you plan to continue directing this journey? I heard that you chose it before you started recording. I believe you are still enjoying the creative freedom of supporting the band by yourself without a record label on your back.
