Metal: Eye Witness had a live conversation with Farida Lemouchi (Molassess, The Devil’s Blood), being a first time ever for her.
“Through the Hollow”, the first Molassess full length album has just been released via Season of Mist (I did an overview of it a couple of weeks ago, you can read it here), so the opportunity seemed perfect to talk a little bit about things regarding the recording… and also to take a glance again to a past time that is gone, but that will never be forgotten: The Devil’s Blood.
I have conducted extensive audio interviews in the past with both Farida and Selim, so doing this again feels like being at home. Nothing more dear and close in Spirit than relate again to people you respect and that have left a strong impression in your senses, if we talk about music and art. And other things as well.
Today we can finally truly let go. And celebrate with great pride and a sense of relief the sprouting of this seed! May it blossom and infinitely resonate, may it shake hard shells of human soul and feed our lust for creation once more. This germ of a journey is out of our hands and free to spread wherever it desires.
Here’s to whatever it may become.
Through The Hollow!
Our brother left us this diamond in the rough years ago. A riddle that kept resonating and found its way up and into our hearts time after time. It is with great pride, eternal love, an everburning fire and gratitude that we finally managed to climb its stairs. This is what we’ve found along the way, beneath its stirring coils.

“Today we can finally reveal the title track of our upcoming album: ‘Through the Hollow’
This was the first one to erupt out of our sonic maelstrom. It represents a journey into the unknown, yet obvious. A creative urge, a story to tell, a perfect timing led Molassess Through the Hollow.”
