Naoise Roo & Hvmmingbyrd Play The Music Library

Naoise Roo and Hvmmingbyrd play an intimate show in the Music Library, Dublin this April. As part of the Musictown Festival the two bands will appear in the ILAC Centre Library, each playing a set and taking part in an audience Q&A hosted by Musos’ Guides own Marky Edison.

The all-ages event is the second of its kind. Last year, Mongrel State and Kicking Bird (pictured) played a rousing set in the library’s activity room. There’s an educational aspect to the show as audience members can quiz these professional musicians on their experience in the music industry. The candor and insight of last year’s bands gave a new insight into what it means to be a musician in modern day Ireland.

The event, entitled Music In Motion, will take place in the Music Library, Central Library, ILAC Centre on Saturday 8th April from 2.30 – 4.30 pm. As always with Dublin City Public Libraries, it’s free in but booking is essential. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Unglorified Warcrimes From Finland's Nighon

Nighon was formed in 2008, in Pietarsaari, Finland. The band portrays unglorified stories from war and other crimes. The band's music is greatly inspired by cinematic music and extreme forms of metal. The result is a unique and aggressive sound, blending darkness with light. Nighon released its first record Cor Oblivionis in 2014 on Univocal Records and their first music video 'Ex Tenebris Lux' the same year.

The band has gigged with bands like MyGrain, Magenta Harvest, Finntroll, Kill The Kong and Arkentype. Nighon are also hosting their own podcast called “Nighon Propaganda-cast”. The idea is to provide uncensored content and a free flow of information. Nighon’s second album, The Somme, was recorded in the spring and summer of 2016. The drums were recorded at Soundspiral Audio, with Juho Räihä. The rest was recorded at Nighon's home studio.

Mathias Lillmåns (Finntroll, Magenta Harvest, Chthonian) has co-produced the album with Nighon. He is also featured on the song ‘I Fear For Tomorrow’. The album was mixed and mastered by Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd at Studio Fredman, Gothenburg Sweden. The album is a concept album with stories from World War I, World War II and the similarities between those and the crises we see today in our world.

The sound is much more extreme than previous Nighon compositions, widening the contrasts even more than before. The album is supposed to be heard in it’s entirety non-stop. The single “The Greatest of Catastrophes” is a blend of the outbreak of World War I and the Ukraine crisis. The video was filmed during the winter 2016 by Kasper Dalkarl, David Viklund and Stephanie Blomqvist.

The Somme is released May 5 via Inverse Records.
