[LYRICS COLLAB] Mindwalker – “Burning Past” (New Album)

Mindwalker Burning Past Artwork

I´m so excited, it´s finally here! I had been working part of last year with my dear friend Daniel Roman Sairafi (ex – Valkiria, ex-Battlerage) on the lyrics of the amazing tracks included on the new MINDWALKER album entitled “Burning Past”. The artwork was created by the well-known Brazilian artist Gustavo Sazes.

Estoy bien contenta de que por fin pueda revelarlo! Estuve trabajando parte del año pasado junto a mi gran amigo Daniel Roman Sairafi (ex – Valkiria, ex – Battlerage) en las letras de los tracks incluidos en el nuevo album de MINDWALKER titulado “Burning Past”. El arte fue creado por el reconocido artista brasileño Gustavo Sazes. 

On vocals, we have the mind-blowing Chris Clancy from UK (Wearing Scars, Mutiny Within, I Legion) and I was kinda worried that he could actually use the vocal melodies and phrasing we composed here in Daniel´s Studio in Lima – Peru, but he pulled everything off just perfectly and did a lot of great stuff with the songs and his way of singing. Can`t wait for you guys to listen to this new rock/metal bomb!

En las voces está el fuera de serie de Chris Clancy de Inglaterra (Wearing Scars, Mutiny Within, I Legion) y estaba un poco preocupada de que el pueda utilizar sin problemas las melodías vocales y el fraseo que compusimos aquí con Daniel en su estudio en Lima – Perú, pero realmente me encantó el resultado pues hizo cosas increíbles con las canciones. ¡No puedo esperar a que escuchen el single! 

[NMK] Nathalie Markoch – Interview with Vokills

[ENG ONLY] I was interviewed by the portal VOKILLS, a site dedicated to recognize the talent of extreme metal vocalists. Thanks a lot to Stefan for such interesting questions!

Clean and extreme, Nathalie Markoch from Melodic Death Metal band NMK, can do both. As the vocalist and founder of NMK she’s delivering some sick guttural sounds blended with a powerful clean voice. Hailing from Peru she started singing in a high school choir and developed her own sound through the years.

Listening to Ravenous Spectre i can’t help to think that you must be exhausted after singing those songs live, how do you keep your voice and overall condition in shape?

Well, those songs are indeed quite vocally demanding haha. Before being able to sing and growl this way I used to do operatic singing and taught myself empirically how to properly manage my breath and support my voice. I try to keep not only my vocal chords well hydrated (alkalinized), but my whole body in general, that’s why I don’t smoke/drink and try my best to not consume acid based foods. I suspect those are the main reasons why I manage to do an entire setlist without needing an oxygen tank 😉

How did you discover your own style of singing and do you have advice for other singers looking to develop their own sound?

While I was recording “Influences & Connections Vol. 1” I learned to sing with different types of voice. I realized that my own lyrics were more suited for a more aggressive approach than the one I learned to use while I was practising to sing classically. So I took upon myself to sing with my natural voice and to slowly add more strength to it. While rehearsing with NMK, somehow something clicked and growls started to pour everywhere. That’s why we included my growls at the end of the recording process of the album.

My advice to other singers would be to hydrate your body with mainly fruits and lemon water. Always make sure that you are not straining your voice in any way, be a melodic voice or while growling. Singing should feel effortless. Although alcohol seem to “warm your throat”, don’t get near it, it will burn your vocal chords from the inside out with its acids. And lastly, always sing from your heart, with a purpose in mind, to give a message and to show a unique perspective only you can bring forth.

Back to the album, there’s cool artwork on it, can you tell a little more about it?

Thanks! The artwork was a joined effort by the amazing colombian artist Juan Camilo Mazutier and myself. Juan Camilo hand-drawn and digitally coloured it and I developed the concept. In summary, the concept behind it is the realization of a human being that’s been under various mind control programs his entire life on Earth.

A ravenous spectre (masculine energy, electric, positive pole, proactive) is seen behind an inquisition-like chair, which is feeding off the energy of a woman, representing the suppressed true feminine (magnetic, negative pole, receptive) of the universe. She’s managed to almost free herself from the matrix imposed (hence the broken chains and 1-eye bandage). The skulls beneath represent the remains of the unsuccessful efforts to obtain freedom of her past lives.

The images carved on the chair represent some aspects that those ravenous spectres have taken complete control over a subject’s life. Satanic Ritualistic Mind Control Abuse, Government and Military infiltration, Pharmaceutical take over Natural Medicine and Overall Health, World Banks backhand game disguised as economic aid, and so on. This chair also symbolizes the occult/new age (ouroboros) propaganda against traditional religions as well, etc. All belongs to the same dualistic illusive reality most humans living on the Earth’s surface experience through a tampered perception and altered DNA.

Pegasus ft Nathalie Markoch @ Friki Fest 2017

¡El show de PEGASUS en el Frki Festival III en el Mall del Sur fue todo un éxito! Gracias a toda la gente que fue (¡casa llena!), coreó todas las canciones, se divirtió, se sacó la mierda en el pogo, perdió celulares, se le cayeron las llaves de su casa, se les perdieron hijos xD, en fin… Esas cosas pasan cuando le inyectas una buena dosis de metal a las ya geniales canciones de los animes que tanto nos gustan 😉

We had a blast on Sunday’s show! Thanks to everybody who showed up (the house was packed!), sung along, had fun, lost an eye on the mosh pit, lost cellphones, dropped house keys, lost children lol, anyways… these things happen when you add a little bit of metal to the  awesome anime openings we already love 😉

Como algunos ya sabían, desde el show del Fan Fest que estoy enferma con gripe y dolor de garganta y cuerpo. Sólo diré que el día anterior y toda la mañana del domingo estuve sumergida en extracto de rabanito, te de ajo y kion, haciendo gárgaras de nabo con limón y poniéndome rodajas de cebolla en los pies. Si, ya se… olía más o menos a Ocopa (plato típico arequipeño), jajaja! Era eso o quedarme en cama. ¡Y funcionó! (Gracias Rafo, me salvaste <3).

Some of you know I had been sick with the flu with the typical symptoms since the Fan Fest show. I will only say that the day before and the same morning I was swimming in radish extract, garlic and ginger tea, doing turnip and lemon gargles and putting onion slices on my feet. Yeah I know, I smelled kinda like Ocopa (typic peruvian dish) hahaha! It was that or stay in bed. And it worked! (Thanks Rafo, you saved the night <3).

¡Gracias a todos por la gran acogida! En especial a los chicos de Pegasus por la invitación, Santos Mache/Maribel Soyoku y Rafael Nuñez por las fotos,  a los que subieron los videos al final del post a Facebook/ Youtube y a la Legion Tail. ¡Nos vemos en el próximo show! \m/_\m/

Thanks to everybody! Specially to all Pegasus members for inviting me, to Santos Mache/Maribel Soyoku and Rafael Nuñez and for the amazing photos, to the ones who uploaded the videos that are at the bottom of this post to Facebook/Youtube and to Legion Tail. See you guys next time \m/_\m/!

Este Domingo 01 de Octubre a las 6PM estaré cantando nuevamente junto a la banda peruana de animetal PEGASUS en la III Edición del FRIKI FESTIVAL en el Mall del Sur. ¡Ya saben que aquí es cuando se arma el pogo! \m/

This Sunday, October 1st at 6PM, I’ll be singing along Peruvian animetal band PEGASUS at the FRIKI FESTIVAL III Edition @ Mall del Sur. Prepare for the moshpit! \m/

Es un Festival que dura 3 días, desde el viernes 30 hasta el domingo 01. Ojo que el sábado 31, PEGASUS estará tocando junto a Adrian Barba, la voz original de las canciones de Dragon Ball y Slam Dunk.

The festival lasts 3 days, from Friday 30th until Sunday 1st. Just to let you know… on Saturday 31st, PEGASUS will be the support band of Adrian Barba, the original singer of Dragon Ball and Slam Dunk.

Quedan pocos días para el show, así que por si acaso los pasaré tomando te de ajo, porque este resfrío del mal no me deja en paz. Harto descanso y una maratón de Fate Zero serán incluidos en mi rutina después de la chamba. Sólo puedo decir que ya quiero que eliminen a Caster de la Guerra del Santo Grial. ¡Nos vemos el domingo! 😉

There are few days until the show, so just in case I’ll be sipping on my garlic tea, ’cause this freakin’ cold is not leaving me be. Lots of rest and a marathon of Fate Zero will be included in my after work routine. I just have to say that I want Caster out of the Holy Grail War asap! See you guys on Sunday! 😉

Oh, la ironía. La primera que dice que el frío está demasiado intenso en Lima y que tienen que abrigarse todos para no enfermar, es la primera en caer. Claramente, no me abrigué lo suficiente jajaja 🤧🤒😷 Ahora, el tema es que como yo no tomo ni pastillas/jarabes ni me meto inyecciones, tardo un poco más en regresar a la rutina. Siempre opto por la medicina natural y le doy tiempo a mi cuerpo para que se regenere sólo con la ayuda del ayuno intermitente y con harto antibiótico natural 🍯🍋. Para los que quieren saber más acerca de medicina natural, escribiré acerca de esto en los próximos posts de de la serie Perception Shifter.

Oh the irony. The first one who says that the cold is too intense in Lima and that you guys should dress warmly to avoid getting sick, is the one who gets a cold. Clearly, I didn’t dressed warmly enough hahaha 🤧🤒😷 I don’t take pills or get injections, so I take my time to get back to my daily routine. I always choose natural medicine and I allow my body to regenerate itself only with intermittent fasting and high dosis of natural antibiotics 🍋🍯 For those of you who want to learn more about natural medicine, I will write about that in some upcoming post of the Perception Shifter Series.

Lo bueno fue que aproveche en ponerme al día en mis estudios. Habían varias secciones de mis libros que ni siquiera había tocado desde que los conseguí, así que estos días sin ver la pantalla del celular/PC me ayudaron harto 🤓.

On the bright side, I was able to catch up with my studies. There were whole chapters on some of my books that I did’t even touch since I put my hands on them, so it was great to be unable to watch the screen of my phone/PC. It helped a lot 🤓.

Diciendo esto, les dejo por aquí algunas fotos (gracias a Rafo Núñez) de lo que fue el Fan Fest 2017 el sábado pasado en el Circuito Mágico del Agua del Parque de la Reserva. ¡La pasamos genial! Se armaron unos buenos pogos ese día 😉 Para aquellos que aún no sepan, la banda de animetal PEGASUS me invitó nuevamente para interpretar algunas canciones junto a ellos. Pronto compartiré los detalles del próximo show en el que estaré cantando 😈 \m/

Anyway, here you can see some photos (thanks to Rafo Nuñez) of the show @ Fan Fest 2017 last Saturday at El Circuito Magico del Agua. We had a blast that night! For those of you who don’t know yet, I’ve been invited by the peruvian animetal band PEGASUS to sing live some songs along them. I’ll be sharing soon the details of the upcoming concert 😈 \m/
