Svneatr (Black metal from Vancouver, BC) drops in to discuss reforming the band, musical influences and progress on their follow up album to The Howl, The Whisper, The Hunt. Also joining us is Apollyon vocalist Matt Depper. They recently drove up from Vancouver to support Numenorean in Kelowna.
Svneatr podcast episode
This was a blast to sit down at the round table with Svneatr to record before their gig. A great group of metalheads bringing different influential and diverse backgrounds together to create some pretty sweet black metal.
It was a pleasure to have Matt from Apollyon on. He was supposed to sit in with us on a previous episode that never materialized. This dude is always welcome on the show. He’s an energetic guy with a real passion and drive for metal.
This is the hair that metalheads wished they had. Alexi Laiho ain’t got nothing on this beautiful flow.
Black metal ruled the night hosted by Numenorean in Kelowna. In support of their new album Adore the band made a stop on their way down to Vancouver to play the Modified Ghost Festival. It was nice Jesse and Siobhan to get them booked for a show as there was a lot of love and support for the post-black metal act from Edmonton. Arctos (Edmonton), Svneatr (Vancouver) and Indecipherable Noise (Peachland) all provided amazing support.
I had spoken with Brendan from Svneatr before hand about recording a podcast and he eagerly agreed. So before the show I sat down at the round table with all four members of the black metal band and we had a great time discussing the band and joking around. That episode should be coming in the next week or so. Stay tuned for that one!
Indecipherable Noise (Kelowna, BC) – instrumental progressive metal
These guys are sounding real tight. There has been a show or two since I last saw them perform but I can say that they have gotten much tighter sounding and put on a great last night.
Their debut album The Howl, The Whisper, The Hunt has been on my playlist since I found them. A blend of atmospheric type black metal with some Darkthrone worship (there is nothing wrong at all about this!!) makes for an entertaining album in my books.
A fellow metalhead who makes the trek down from Vernon for shows introduced me to Svneatr. From there Brendan and I began following each other on Twitter and finally after finding out about their show in Kelowna got together for the podcast.
The band was nice enough to allow me to share a new song of theirs called Lavender:
Super fucking intense black metal! Holy shit. Really that’s the first thought that comes to mind while thinking about their set last night. I felt some real Dissection or Naglfar influence in their sound both during the show and on the 2017 EP A Spire Silent.
They played some new material which they said was from an upcoming album. I’m pretty stoked on that. They’ve got some good shit going on so far.
Their sophomore album Adore came out in mid-April and has been a staple in my weekly listens since. It’s got some amazing atmosphere and, if it can be said, catchy songs that pull me in when I listen with my headphones. So having a chance to see Numenorean in Kelowna live is really something else.
This whole post-black metal movement that’s been going on the last few years has really pulled me in thanks to this new album. I hope these guys come back again soon. In fact all the bands. This was a great night for metal and thus the world.
Thanks for making it this far through the blog! If you enjoyed any of these bands through the recordings or video please consider supporting them! Get out to the shows and show some love for all our amazing metal bands.
