A couple months ago, British black metal act, Winterfylleth, laid siege to the oldest (and ex-capital of Roman Britain) town that goes by the name Colchester. The interview took place at The Hole in the Wall before the band’s gig at the Colchester Arts Centre, which is a church used for concerts and other events. Rob talked to the band’s guitarist and vocalist Christopher Naughton about Colchester, the band’s music and history. Check out the chat in the clip below and find out why the band will most probably not visit Australia in the near future.
Musically, Winterfylleth seem to have that extra something that was perhaps missing from the other bands. Clean vocal harmonies were incredibly effective and were carried out with ease, acting as a tribute to the building’s former use as a church. Along with the slightly more folky aspects of Winterfylleth’s music, they gave a variety to the set that made it less of a performance and more of an experience. The music genuinely did inspire, and really conjured up images of the magnificent English countryside. Perhaps it was a benefit of setting, weather and sound, but Winterfylleth managed by far the best to transport us to another place tonight. – check out the rest of the review of the band’s gig at the Colchester Arts Centre right here.
