The Unchaining Interview

 1. Can you tell us a little bit about the musical project for those that have never heard of you before?
1.I'm a one man band of Atmospheric Black Metal called The Unchaining.The project was born around one year ago and i have recorded two album,the first,"Wandering through the landscapes of mind",is released by rigorism production. I have just released my new album "Ruins At Dusk".

2.How would you describe the musical sound that is present on both albums?
2.The two album has differences in the sound:the first album has cold guitars and keyboards, it has some elements of old doom and songs entirely with clean guitars.
The second album in my opinion is the evolution of the first one:the sound is darker,there is more doom component,the songs are longer and hypnotic with more keyboards but it 
is always an album of atmospheric black metal.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with your music?
3.Both album are introspective,a lot.An important theme for me is man in relation with nature and so with the universe,so with himself.Another important thing in the lyrics is the relation with ancient times and the contraposition and interpenetration of light and darkness.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name The Unchaining?

4.The meaning of the name The Unchaining wants to be a liberation through knowledge.

5.Currently there is only 1 member in the project, do you feel you have a lot more room to be creative with your music?

5. I think it's a genre of music that enhances the creativity of the individual, but maybe one day can be interesting to have some collaborations.

6.Recently Rigorism released some of your music on cd, do you feel they have done a lot of help for getting your name out?

6.They have released my first album and i think they are doing a good job! they are a small label but they do a great job for the bands,they are keeping the underground alive!
