The Power of Evolution with Lisette van den Berg
In episode seven of Metal Maven Podcast, I’m joined by Lisette van den Berg, biologist and lead singer of Dutch Progressive Metal band, Scarlet Stories. We discuss the journey of creating their debut album, Necrologies and how studying Nature informs her musical evolution.
You hunted, gunned, and broken –
Forsaken, raped, betrayed, unspoken,
Wronged, suppressed, muted, ill-gotten.
Cut and hanged, hurt, and forgotten.
Through script and melody
Forever in our hearts and praised be.
Commemorated in these necrologies
Here written are your Scarlet Stories…
