Diary Of My Misanthropy - Threatre Of The Absurd






This music project from the multi-talented, Vladyslav Tsarenko from Prague shows instrumental music at it's pinnacle and truly embraces the elements needed to inject emotions and portray his inspiration, solely through his use and interpretation of the music. The main inspirations being events taking place in the world during our time, and the classic novel by George Orwell, '1984'..

The first song to grace our ears is, "War Is Peace", which opens on a very ambient melancholic note, before really coming to life with far reaching guitar work, and leads us wonderfully on to the intense new single for, "Freedom Is Slavery", which also has a very powerful video to accompany it. It manages to encompass the context superbly through the emotive use of the instruments and effects; especially the way it progresses throughout..this is a mighty track which needs to be heard!

"Ignorance Is Strength" has a sombre yet hopeful vibe to it, which is elegantly captured. Towards the end it gets darker and more complex, making for a very thought provoking number.."Kindness Is Weakness", appropriately perhaps has an intricate and fragile air to it, showing a 'softer' side to the largely serious broody music  - it still possesses a tragic feel to it,which the instrumental bit towards the end emphasises.

The deep and meaningful, "Naked Body, Hidden Soul", keeps things on a par with the current standard, being very intelligible and evoking emotion, something which should be commended, without the need or use of lyrics - yet it sounds so fluent and effortless!

So we reach the end of this enlightening musical journey with the fitting, "The Curtain Is Closing", (Prologue) which is somewhat light hearted, and offers the listener time to reflect and admire this show or 'Threatre' we have been invited to enjoy!..

From the start I was intrigued and from thereon out, listened intently to every note! It is quite something when you can find instrumental music that moves you so much, and gets it's desired effect through so prominently, which is what 
Vladyslav has done wonderfully! The end result is an intense intelligible and far reaching meaningful must hear EP!




Check out the said 'powerful' new video for, "Freedom Is Slavery":

EX-HIM Frontman Ville Valo Reveals New Band & Album

Ex-HIM Frontman Ville Valo has announced his return to music with his new band, Ville Valo & Agents, with their debut single, a cover of Rauli Badding Somerjoki's 'Orpolapsi Kiurun'(‘Orphan Child Of The Skylark’) to drop later this month on the 21st September, with an album to follow in 2019.


Ville has teamed up with Esa Pulliainen, guitarist with veteran Finnish band Agents, to record an album of songs inspired by late Finnish rock’n’roll singer Rauli Badding Somerjoki.

“This story begins three years ago,” says Pulliainen, whose band played with Badding in the 80s. “Upon finding three demo cassettes in my drawer which had been sent to me by Badding back in the day, I knew I had to contact Ville right from the get-go. I was aware he knows his Badding inside out. I'm really happy that we were able to finalize this project. Badding meant for these songs to be recorded and even if it took us 30 years to make that happen, I feel I've kept my promise."

Badding is…
