Damn, this is probably the best thing happened in the last time. Damn. Fans of the swedish screamo scene listen up, this project is like a dream come true. The very fact that persons from bands like Vi som älskade varandra så mycket, Sore Eyelids, Totem Skin, Rainmaker and more are involved lets my heart beat faster and faster. But let’s begin at the beginning.
Gabriel, guitarist of the amazing Heart On My Sleeve, got an idea back in late 2014 for a special project.
Getting together a very unique setup of different people from different cities/countries/bands he had the pleasure to play with over the past years and trying to create an enormous blend of emotive hardcore/screamo music.
Gabriel had 3 ideas on the guitar-parts, Karl wrote one part and each person got to do with the songs what they wanted. The most raddest thing about this all is that the persons involved had no influence on each others parts and never got to rehearse together. They just recorded their part of the song and then sent it to the next musician. In the end Michael Nordström did the last part – mixed and mastered everything.
The project is called ”Ephemera” which means ”things that are important or useful for only a short time; items that were not meant to have lasting value”.
“I have become this empty shell since nothing is left of you anyway. Darkness has swept away but I still find myself at the bottom of a well. Broken and left with the taste of betrayal on my tongue.” (from ‘Darkness Within’)
3 unbelievable beautiful songs. Can’t highlight a single one because they are all exceptional great. Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.
