The USA based ambient/industrial, neo-folk solo act None - a tribute to all the divine - was founded in 2015 by musician and songwriter Nicholas Mendiola (Ex-Plague Phalanx, Thangorodrim and Awakened Abyss). For Nicholas, None is the deity of his creation and the eternal version of himself. As he had stated for the interview (webzine From Corners Unknown), the purpose and mission of his contemporary life were to discover himself as the true voice and host that None speaks through - and to leave the word and mark of None upon the world not only to affect other present beings of the earth and multiverse but to leave traces for future lives to again discover their true identity.

None's music will be presented on the radio show [Dark] UNKNOWN this Thursday, 3 June at 22.00 [CEST] on Terra Relicta radio.


In the spotlight


French act Saigon Blue Rain was formed by Ophélie Lecomte and Franck Pelliccioli in September 2012 as Stupid Bitch Reject. Six months later, its first self-titled EP got released on Afmusic. A couple of months before the debut album What I Don't See release on Cold Insanity Music in September 2014, the duo decided to rename the band from Stupid Bitch Reject to Saigon Blue Rain. While the initials, which proved to be lucky ones, stayed the same, the music style changed - what was the reason for changing the band's name in the first place. The same kind of ethereal vocals now combined with highly emotive new/coldwave with some post-punk, darkwave, shoegaze and some gothic rock.
