amongst the nihilism"
Read an article about Kiethevez written by J Andersson, Nov. 2004.
With just under 2 months left of '04, Kiethevez look
stronger than in many years.
Gone are the days of reminiscing early years of touring and
recording sessions under
somewhat different circumstances.
The working process when having band members spread in different
countries at times
has now come into place properly, and thanks to a new virtual
studio everyone can
co-work on any song at any given time. This has added a new
dimension in both
creativity as well as functionality.
Kiethevez have not been this creative for ages. It's virtually
pouring out of all
four members' pens. Demos and excerpts form full songs, most
will melody-wise be
easily recognised by Kiethevez listeners. As previously, the
development from this band comes during the paradoxical mix
between a positive
creativity and a luring nihilism of band members. The built-in
but never reach lethargical proportions; instead the band seek
to make sure most
songs have a drive, that make it alert and vibrant.
Following the set routine of never adapting to what "should be
to A&R's, lists or labels, one can never say that Kiethevez aim
directly for the
Jesper Palmqvist: -"Our music is made for an obvious reason, at
least to us. The cliché of composing as a form of therapy never
leaves. Thus we write for our own self-preservation and to the
people who throughout the years have told us they like what we
do. We are indeed very grateful for everyone who finds something
in our music that attracts them, it gives us a unique sense of
belonging. It is very gratifying. No artist should ask for
anything else than that. Everything else is just a bonus."
By 2005 followers of Kiethevez should not be disappointed.
