PHARMAKON

”THE PREVIOUS RECORD WAS TALKING ABOUT SENTIENCE TRAPPED INSIDE THIS ROTTEN VESSEL THAT WE CAN’T CONTROL – THIS ONE IS TALKING ABOUT WHEN IT CAN ESCAPE AND TRANSCEND THAT”

“I think that during the period after you finish a project on which you spend a lot of time and to which you dedicate a lot of thought, there’s always this sort of depression that you experience. For me at least, it’s like that,” Margaret starts, explaining how ‘Contact’ feels for her right now, before revealing some plans still related to this release. “You’ve put so much into this project and suddenly there’s this void, suddenly it’s over, and it’s kind of depressing. But what’s been helping me this time is that it’s not really over. Other than doing a ‘zine for the special edition, I’m doing a video, and then I’ll do another video… a lot of this album is going to be lived outside of the actual album itself. A lot of it will be lived in conversations, live performances, collaborations, the work that occurs after the album is done. I think that’s the cool part, because it’s such an ambitious idea, it’s almost like the record is a sketch towards a new stage of the project. Even though it feels over, at the same time it doesn’t, because of all that, and also because, since it was an album made after a bit of a break, I have a great drive to move on to the next project, and so I’m also already thinking about the next things and focusing on that as well.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

I bloody love The Obsessed’s new album – it’s packed with grooves and riffs and isn’t one-dimensional in the slightest. I recall getting psyched when Relapse announced they had signed the band and since the news landed, plotting with the label about putting Wino and his band on the cover. It seems like aeons since they recorded the album last summer, but as Wino explains in our cover feature, a lot has been going on since that recording session. Go and read all about it now! And if you haven’t heard the album, please go check it out – it’s well worth the twenty-plus year wait since ‘The Church Within’. I always remember Wino and co. sticking out like a sore thumb when I saw them in Nottingham’s Rock City opening for Prong and Life Of Agony in support of that album – a sea of audience confusion greeted them, but the drive and honesty that oozed from the trio that night had a long-lasting impression on me, and I cannot wait to see them on our shores again soon, I hope. So, as always enjoy the issue in your hands. Every month Kez and the writing crew pour blood, sweat and tears into the issue to make it the best we can. It’s tough times out there, we have no crowd-funding hype machines behind us, just passion, belief and, frankly, stubbornness. And of course, enjoyment in the music. Take care and see you next month!
