MP: Please introduce yourself?
LL: I’m A, born and raised in and around KL. My first favorite band were The Cranberries and my favorite thing is pot
MP: How did you form Lifelorn?
LL: I formed Lifelorn as a means to manifest this fixation I had with this girl almost 5 years ago. At the same time I descended into the realm of depressive and post-black metal which to me at that time was the only logical direction for black metal to come to. Which led me to write the first ever Lifelorn track, ‘worlds apart’
MP: How did you pick the name and what does it mean?
LL: The name was taken from the term ‘lovelorn’ which I suspect is old english. It means what it sound like it means, to tell you the truth
MP: How would you describe your music?
LL: Dark, passionate, yet sombre. I like to describe the experience of listening to lifelorn as being in a long dark tunnel on a train. The idea basically is to make the listener view the tunnel’s exit from a distance as a metaphor for hope or change
MP: Where do you draw influences from?
LL: When I first started in 2009 i’ve been listening to Burzum a lot. I also look to bands like The Cure and Happy Days for inspiration for their groundbreaking expresions to romanticize loving (or depressing) relationships between couples in both the punk and metal scene
MP: Can you tell us about the meaning behind Memoirs?
LL: Memoirs is a collection of painful truths about life that we all share, presented in a way that makes the listener stay for the journey which in the end invites them to whether make that crossroad in life, or not, so to speak
MP: Did you always write instrumental music?
LL: Always have. My first work was a darkwave song composed out of a midi sequencer software
MP: Did you ever work before with other musicians?
LL: Only during jam sessions so far.
MP: What is your music about for those who don’t know?
LL: My music is about my (love) life mostly…
MP: You have stated that your music influence is questionable? How so?
LL: I guess thats just because I still find major 9th and minor 11th chords to be so not metal
MP: Is there plans of another release?
LL: I’m working on a release to be co-produced by a guy from Blasted Symphonies Productions, based in Germany under a different moniker
MP: Anything else you would like to say?
LL: Big ups to Deep of Filsufatia, Anton of Monde Celeste, Nath of Maqâbir, Pyan and Ekstrim Info Zine, Andy of Fragile Branch, the fans, and to Neil and the Metal Purgatory for putting word out on the streets.
