Check out finest Melodic Heavy Metal By Katia Alcim, on 18/10/2018

«Maiden’s Baroque Chamber on fire» ou: «(Qui se soucie) comment nous avons rencontré et fondé WICKED PLAN ?!»

Natali et Dan se sont rencontrés à l’été 1995 à Berne / Suisse,quelques mois plus tard, Natali et Dan ont découvert que les deux adorent le son Hard’n Heavy des années 80. À cette époque, Dan dirigeait son groupe de hard rock «Double 0 Zero» en tant que guitariste et compositeur. Tandis que Natali écrivait et enregistrait elle aussi sa propre musique, c’était un genre de thrasy underground underground avec des orgues fantasmagoriques et des tambours à bascule durs

Alors quoi de plus proche que de joindre nos forces!? Dan et Natali ont décidé de se réunir ensemble musicalement - et quelques mois plus tard, également en privé. Avec cela, les bases ont été posées pour WICKED PLAN !

** English original**** Maiden’s Baroque Chamber on fire or: «(Who cares) how we met and founded WICKED PLAN?!»

Natali and Dan met in summer 1995 in Berne/Switzerland by chance, when Natali’s sister was looking for a Rock guitar teacher and… Dan was giving guitar lessons! Lucky girl \m/

A couple of months later Natali and Dan found out that both love 80ies Hard’n Heavy sound. At that time, Dan lead his Hard Rock band «Double 0 Zero» as guitarist and song writer. While Natali was writing and recording her own music too, which was kind of a thrasy underground Metal with spooky organs and hard rocking drums

So what lies closer at hand than to join forces!? Dan and Natali decided to move together musically - and a couple of month later also in private live. With that the foundation was laid for WICKED PLAN.

Sceau de l'Ange - Annecy - FBy Katia Alcim, on 16/10/2018

Sceau de l’Ange propose un univers intense fait d’un Metal Progressif éclectique jouant sur les émotions et leurs contrastes. Cette musique élaborée mais accessible s’habille d’une voix féminine aux couleurs variées allant des sonorités les plus douces aux plus animales. Celle-ci délivre des textes en français intriguant et oniriques ayant pour particularité de privilégier la musicalité et le mystère…

Last year I first became aware of the Female Metal Fest in Geneva. This small festival is organized by the local band Alkemy. For this purpose, the musicians founded the non-profit association Wings Music & Events. President of the association is Katia, the singer of the band. Katia has also launched another festival, the «Woman Vocal 187», which addresses the abuse of women and supports victims of abuse. For organizational reasons, both festivals will be merged into a two-day event this year. Friday, November 30, 2018 is reserved for the second edition of Woman Vocal 187. One day later, on December 1, 2018, the fourth Female Metal Fest is rising. Venue is in the Chemin de l’Avenir 11 (Lancy Genève).

On both days, the guests are already welcomed at the entrance with an acoustic rendition of IN BLOOM, an electro-pop duo from Thonon in France. The festival organizers Alkemy can also be seen and hear on Friday. They jumped in for Ultima Ratio (Switzerland), who unfortunately had to cancel their appearance. I just saw Alkemy at the Voices of the Succubi Festival in Malta. From the Netherlands, the hard rockers Titans Blow will arrive. Revival are a metal band from Vaulx-en-Velin (Lyon region). On Friday I will finally be able to experience Wicked Plan (Büren, Switzerland), after only a brief meeting at Geneva Airport last year. Headliner of the first evening will be Penumbra, a gothic metal band from the French capital Paris.

After the acoustic welcome by IN BLOOM, six bands will enter the stage on the second day. Dead Dog Cafe (Martigny, Switzerland) were founded in November 2007 and claims to play alternative rock / metal. In contrast, the Lyon GoneZilla will present Doom Metal. From the Rhône-Alpes region come Sceau de l’Ange and then provide a Progressive Metal splash of color. I was able to see the Death Metal band Maryrium from Malta twice, most recently about one year ago in Hamburg. And a few weeks ago, I met the new singer Sandra at the Voices of the Succubi, with her own band Nekrodelirium. I already know some members of the band Chaoseum (Switzerland) from a show by Elferya at the Autumn Moon Festival in Hameln. However, singer Lola and guitarist Loïc show up in their new band from a slightly harder side. The headliners of the second evening will be Secret Rule. The band around frontwoman Angela Di Vincenzo has invited many prominent guest musicians for both previous studio albums, such as Henning Basse (Firewind, MaYan), Henrik Klingenberg (Sonata Arctica), Timo Somers (Delain) or Ailyn Giménez (ex-Sirenia). Since I’m quite curious about the stage performance of the tribe cast (after band information a quartet).

The list of the individual bands promises a varied weekend. I will meet many friends again, but I will see most of the bands for the first time. Also this year, the organizers have launched a crowdfunding campaign where you can buy tickets and various VIP packages: https://wemakeit.com/projects/4th-female-metal-fest-2018?locale=en

Bonjour à tous, avec toutes nos excuses, le groupe genevois, fondateur de l’asso et du fest, ALKEMY remplacera le groupe Ultima Ratio qui ne pourra finalement pas se produire, et vous présentera la sortie de son album avec les nouvelles chansons. Pas moins de 12 titres, dont 6 compos qui parlent de résilience, qui donne un message d’espoir à toutes les victimes d’abus et de violence par une expérience vécue, racontée et exteriorisée par le contraste musical du métal et de la symphonie, le bien et le mal, la survie, puis la vie <3 www.alkemy.ch
