Carmen Elise Espenæs – SAVN

Interview by Arianna G.

In a busy environment which is the current metal scene, SAVN is the revelation band of 2014. Norwegian and dedicated to the gothic and folk melodies and led by the blonde vocalist Carmen Elise Espenæs, Stig Johansen and Anders Thue (ex-The Sins of Thy Beloved), SAVN‘s debut album gained positive acclaims from all over the world in a very short time. For the occasion, we exchanged a few chats with the singer of this combo and, in this in-depth interview, she tells us something about this new musical experience, without forgetting her “mother-band”, Midnattsol, anticipating some juicy news as well.
Savn is a band formed by Stig and Anders. After so many years in which there were so many rumours concerning their band, The Sins of Thy Beloved, they’ve decided to start a new music project. Would you like to give a short biography of this new band for those people who are still not familiar with you?

Yes, of course! It was actually Stig that started the band, he felt that he needed something new in his life, something new in the music front, because nothing happened with The Sins of Thy Beloved, it was too silent for him, Continue reading »

Tom Phillips – While Heaven Wept

Interview by Miriam C.

Reading Tom‘s words what shines through is a pure innocence after being reborn from the ashes of a past life. Probably I read too much sci-fi stuff, that’s for sure but WHW is one of the few bands whose spirit is still driven by the real passion for music without any business shenanigans. WHW‘s music helps to cleanse your soul and can totally help you during your catharsis. So, we contacted Tom Phillips, the mastermind behind this family business, for more updates about their recent album “Suspended at Aphelion”.
Hi Tom, first of all welcome back to Femme Metal Webzine! How are you? It’s passed a lot of time since the last time we chat together…

Doing well Miriam, thanks for asking! I hope it is the same for you…and that you’ve resolved your computer issues! (Yes, finally Tom, thanks for being thoughtful!)

Please me indulge us now Tom but WHW doesn’t have exactly the tradition to release studio albums in such short periods of time, I refer for example to “Sorrow of the Angels” and “Of Empires Forlorn” ’cause between this 2 album, there is a break of 5 years. Is WHW embracing a new era, a more productive one than ever? Continue reading »

Milana Solovitskaya – Tantal


Interview by Vard Aman

Tantal formed in 2004 in Moscow and have been growing ever since. In 2007, the released their highly acclaimed debut album “The Beginning of the End”, but in 2011 their vocalist, Sofia Raykova, left the band. Meanwhile, they had begun the long process (they’re perfectionists – and it shows) of recording their second album, “Expectancy”. Milana Solovitskaya was brought in to do the clean vocals for the album, and she is now their permanent vocalist. We caught up with her for a chat.
Hi Milana, welcome to Femme Metal webzine.


How did you end up becoming the vocalist of Tantal?

I found their advertisement in a music forum and sent them my live video and audios. I didn’t hear them before.

What is your musical background? Did you sing for any bands before Tantal? Continue reading »

Coen Janssen – Epica

Interview by Alessandra Cognetta

The European Enigma Tour has just started and Epica decided to once again play a couple of shows in Italy. Their packed concert in Rome gave us a chance to have a nice chat with Coen Janssen and discuss Epica’s recent accomplishments and collaborations, from music videos to videogames, but also some more peculiar matters, like the role of streaming services in metal music.
The venue was warmed up by an energetic opening set from Dragonforce, whose newest member, Italian drummer Gee Anzalone, had a very uplifting message for the audience. But the crowd went completely crazy when the first notes from “Originem” started playing, greeting the band with incredible enthusiasm. The setlist was very diverse, spacing from the old classics to the latest singles, and Epica proved to be the usual more than well-oiled machine, delivering a memorable performance.
