Season of Mist and Scandinavian multi-instrumentalist SYLVAINE are proud to announced a very first episode of Metal Yoga, which will be streaming live tomorrow, April 24th at 19:00 CEST on the Season of Mist YouTube channel HERE.
In a time filled with stress and overwhelming unknowns, SYLVAINE gives weekly yoga sessions where she puts the breath back in the driver’s seat of her students. This week, she will host a special metal ‘Warrior’ themed session, accessible to all levels on the Season of Mist YouTube page. So join in and let the metal juices flow! #NamasteAF
SYLVAINE comments on the session: “I started doing yoga myself a few years ago, as a way to deal with anxiety and physical tensions, directly connected to playing concerts and working as a professional musician. After a mini-tour we did with Harakiri For The Sky in 2017, I was looking to find a way to soften and strengthen my body, as well as calm my mind. That’s when yoga came into my life and it hasn’t left me since. For the past years, I’ve practiced more or less daily, something that truly changed my life for the better. I soon realized it’s something I want to share with others, in hopes that it can bring something positive into their lives, just like it did for me. I’m really excited to team up with Season of Mist to create a special yoga session I’ve named “Warrior”, to spread the practice of yoga to our common metal community. The class will be available to all levels, and will focus around breath work, softening and energizing the body. Truly can’t wait to practice together!”
A strong duality between worlds. A balance between the beautiful and the harsh, serenity and chaos, between an outside and an inner world, between our human life and the spiritual origins.
Norwegian multi-instrumentalist SYLVAINE deals with the extreme range of emotions this human existence has to offer, as a result of being in constant conflict with oneself and struggling to adapt to this place we call our own. The project serves as an emotional catharsis for the artist, revealing the eternal longing for something more residing within its melodies, capturing the feeling of being trapped and restraint by the human form.
After a year of playing selected, successful concerts around Europe together with her live band, like the European tour with Austrian post-metal outfit HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY and a headlining tour in Russia/Ukraine tour, SYLVAINE once again entered the renown Drudenhaus Studio in France during autumn 2017 to start the recording of her new creation, “Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone”. Together with recording and mixing engineer Benoît Roux and her two session musicians, Stephen Shepard and Stéphane “Neige” Paut (ALCEST), SYLVAINE pushes the duality between beautiful and extreme even further on her third album, bringing the concept behind the project to new heights. The album mastered by Jack Shirley (DEAFHEAVEN, OATHBREAKER) at Atomic Garden in San Francisco (US).
Still serving as the sole composer of both music and lyrics, producer and musician of most instruments herself, SYLVAINE takes the sound of her sophomore album “Wistful” (2016) and develops it into a more mature and contrasted form on “Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone”, all while trying to communicate the essence of her project, which remains the same as always before.
Now enter the cold and icy world of “Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone”, and let yourself be enveloped by its pressing despair.
