Melanchall is the one-man project from Max of Novosibirsk, Russia. Although Melanchall’s tracks sound dark and depressive at times, the message of its music is “Stop nothing, start anything”. Each track tries to show how dark life is when people do nothing to make their dreams come true or when people have no dreams at all. So, Melanchall is an attempt to push people beyond their comfort zone and make them start to change the world. I believe that music can be a cure for idleness and passivity. He says, ” I want to thank bands and musical projects like X-Fusion, Neurotech, Abyssphere, Deathstars and Cold in May for an inexhaustible source of inspiration and new ideas. The dark atmosphere of their music that makes me dive into it, many times led me to sudden and spontaneous creation of a great composition (great for me, of course).”

Furios Lars is an Italian guitarist who has always been into metal. He says, “The day I picked up the guitar changed my entire life and person. I usually play really aggressive stuff but sometimes I like to chill out and be softer.” Falling Leaves, his first solo track, was written to express his feelings of determination and newfound joy for life. He says, “I wanted to create something that would spread those feelings, because even thought there may be some really hard times throughout our existence, there’s always a reason to rise again and change you life and your future, as well as help others around us do the same thing. There will always be many stories to tell and many reasons to smile!”
