heard of you before?
Calling of Lorme is a metal band that mainly incorporates electro and industrial sonorities. On stage, we interpret our music through a visual and theatrical show.
2.How would you describe your musical sound?
Our sound mixes the power of metal and the martiality of the industrial music thanks to the cutting edge guitar riffs and hammering drums.The electro side of samples brings about a touch of modernity, and blended with more traditional instrumentation (violin, choir ...)
created this particular universe between the old and the modern.
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Strong and recurring issues revolve around the fanaticism, feelings and human relationships. Power relationships inspire us a lot as well as everything that can bring humans to its deviances.
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name Calling Of Lorme?
The band's name refers directly to the physician Charles Delorme, who at the time of the Great Plague of Marseille invented the mask in the shape of bird's head, to guard against the dangers of the disease. This is a historical reference of our area and of the group's roots. The developed universe therefore follows from this
reference and this name.
5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage
We have three significant dates, the first in our area, on the great scene of Jas Rod where we shared the stage with Blazing War Machine (Black Metal Indus, Fr). We also have good memories of our performance at Divan du monde, a beautiful scene of our capital, Paris. Finally, play on a stage at a festival renowned as the Metaldays (ex Metalcamp) in Slovenia completely motivated us and gave us the ambition to reproduce the experience on stages of this magnitude.In terms of our performance on stage, it goes beyond the simple interpretation of the music. We also interpret the characters from our fiction. Wearing suits go in this way and allows each musician
to enter a characteristic personage. We also try to immerse our audience in this world with a play of light that is our own.
6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
2013 was a big year for Calling of Lorme. We started to provide support for large groups (Hypno5e, AqME, Eths, Blazing War Machine) and we played at Metaldays this summer. We are back from a French tour and have recently released our first album, accompanied by a vidéo clip from a show. Currently we are in a period of reflection to develop our future projects in the best way. But the scene is one of the key issues the group and in period of album release we will not neglect to go meet our public.
7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of industrial and metal?
Generally we had a good European reception. The public during our passage in Slovenia was present and receptive. We are getting positive feedback from through the album and not just European. We note that public besides the Atlantic Ocean is also interested in our music. But the album comes out on November 4 and it is still early to know our real impact outside France.
8.Are there any other musical projects besides this band?
All of us have our different centers of interest in which we operate elsewhere, but musically Calling of Lorme
remains for the moment our main center of interest.
9.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
Making our music more personal, away of the exercise in style "Metal Indus" trying to refresh it in our way while keeping what makes its strength and footprint. And this without forgetting our own identity that we learned to develop and which we would like to highlight.
10.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also, what are you listening to
Each member has their own influences and musical history. The compositions come from Dorian, our drummer, so our music mainly result of his own influences. But we can see that the personalities of each musicians feed his writing and this is how the influences of each can also be revealed.Together we have a very big playlist but to be fast this recent times Jo, our bassist, is listening in loop the last album “Asa” of Falkenbach, Seth, our guitarist, musics of Shaka Ponk and Kavinsky, JY has found since our last tour a passion for the Hardtech music, and Dorian listen diferent bands like Hopes Die Last, Die Antwoord and Knife Party.
11.Outside of music what are some of your interests?
To make it simple we love cinema, the series, video games, graphic design, drawing and traveling.
