Mileth: Galician Celts and Oral Traditions

Mileth from Galicia plays its very distinct mixture of folk music and metal. Marcos do Relicario from the band was kind enough to answer Guido Segers’ questions and tell them more about their unique background and history.


We’re working on our next full length release – it’ll be our second as a band but our first since Mandy joined, so we’re really excited to get it out there. We’ve been underwater for our last couple of releases (‘The Race’ and ‘The Narrator’) so we’re heading into space for this one. Not to have our heads too far up our own arses, but we’ve really enjoyed translating stories into music (The Narrator is based off an HP Lovecraft story), so we decided to write our own this time. The record follows the story of a civilisation whose planet is destroyed for reasons they will never know – their escape into space and eventual decline into ritual and entropy.

The Eskimo Chain

Having recently released our second album, which was very different from the first, we are looking at how to keep things exciting, not just for the listener but for ourselves as well. Over the recent years we have been listening to more and more electronic music and going to more raves than gigs per se. Exploring labels like WARP, R&S, artists like Aphex Twin / Clark / Squarepusher / Lone / Orbital. With this in mind we are very interested in making more electronic music, putting down the guitars for ARPs and sequencers and designing and building crazy circuits and exploring different drum machines from over the years.

Faca De Fogo – An Interview with Chris Haslam and João Pais Filipe

“We plan to play live with this project at some point. We were down to premiere it to the UK at Supersonic this year but that’s obviously fucked now. However, IMPATV & myself, and also Pedro Fonseca (a filmaker from Porto) have made a video of visuals for the album (keeping in with the Manc/Porto collaboration).
