Interview with E-AN-NA

I interviewed E-AN-NA who recently released their debut album titled "Nesfârşite".

01. Welcome E-an-na ! First of all, what is the meaning of the band name ? It literally means « The home of the skies » in ancient summerian. It is a whole new, separate world that we’ve created to escape this one. Every soul is welcome.

02. The band started as a studio project back in 2014 and became a full line-up band ready for shows…. How and when did it happen exactly ? The songs we started putting out at the beginning received more attention & positive feedback than we would’ve ever expected. People started requesting shows a lot, and as a consequence, 2016 was our first busy year.

03. So, E-an-na is one of those bands which started to be famous, thanks to Youtube and internet, right ? I think so, yes. We were very fortunate in this regard.

04. How did you feel in that time ? Like not having a clue what we’re doing. We didn’t have any plans back then, every idea was just shot at us by pe…

Nature Ganganbaigal (TENGGER CAVALRY) passed away

Nature "张天然" Ganganbaigal was a brillant and talended artist, with his band Tengger Cavalry, with the NYU orchestra... He was also a nice film and video game music composer
I had honour to interview him back in 2015 but today, I learn he passed away on June 13th, 2019.

That's with heavy heart I share the sad news. .
Today, Patrick Reilly guitar player of the band, told the following to Metal Sucks zine : “we grew suspicious when he did not show up for a pre-show rehearsal last weekend. We also had a video shoot scheduled, so for him to miss that was a cause for suspicion.” The band “had been collaborating with friends of his in Austin since that time.” Today, authorities informed the band that they found Nature’s body on June 13.
The band stated : “it is with deep sadness and shock that we must share the news that Nature has passed away. Nature’s greatest goal in life was the unite people of all backgrounds through community and through music. He was also an advocate …

New groups and other improvements

I apologize for silence for a month. I was tired and then had to work on my other website that you can see now if you click on my name... but its a French site about serious games... Very different from here 😏
In the meantime, I thought to Sword Chant, its community and the sharing of the news.
The world is changing It started with social network and high-tech keeps changing our behaviours. I tried to bring you a new tool and some new activites with Discord but it didn’t work. Instead, I created new groups.
NEW GROUPS Thinking to the news to share, and our community. I extended our Facebook page to two groups : one for bands & PR, and the other one for our nice community.

Meanwhile Bands/PR can ever send their news by email, now they can also join this new tool that aims to one easier sharing of their news to be available on the website then : SCgroupforBands 
Our nice Facebook community can join and discuss music in this group : SCgroupforFans

Silence lies untroubled
Nothing but the wind is muttering on the hills
Swirls of dust then appear
And a low sound pounding
Far in the distance, there is an army marching

My dear goddess I’m calling you
Give me the strength to face my foes
I pledge my sword and my soul into battle
Let my fury charge with you!

Now the fight has begun
Scattered shields, broken lives
Close to my own arm so many friends are falling
Blood is darkening my sight
Fear driven to anger
Kill! I’ve lost my mind, the beast inside is roarin…
