The international extreme metal project SINSAENUM had only just released its first album “Echoes Of The Tortured” in summer 2016, but new blood is already pumping through their veins. Metal Wani’s Anne Catherine Swallow had a chat with SINSAENUM mastermind Frederic Leclercq about the band’s brand new EP “Ashes”.
In this interview he speaks about his constant urge to write new songs for the band (regardless of just having released an album with Dragonforce this year!) and how he managed to already have new tracks up his sleeve right after unleashing the debut album.
He throws a little light on the meaning behind the number in the song title ‘2099 (Heretics)’ and the cover artwork by the French artist Maxime Tacchardi, who has mostly been famous for the portraits he painted with his own blood. He explains why being ‘true’ and ‘kvlt’ in the extreme metal scene is not always bad, but why he also enjoyed to take a step outside of his comfort zone by getting techno remixes of his own songs and experimenting more on future releases. Of course he also reveals the envisioned release month for the follow-up of “Echoes Of The Tortured”, which is closer than most fans might think, and promises a big tour after this second full-length CD.
He finishes with speaking about his favourite ‘chansons francaises’ and he explains why he doesn’t like going to the cinema, but prefers the classical ‘Netflix & chill” with ‘Stranger Things’.
