Hailing from the land of Beethoven and Wagner, Matyria emerges a raw and sinister force of versatile nature, combining the sound and aura of early Norwegian Black Metal with all time avantgarde classics such as Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath and Diamanda Galás, forging links between individuality and tradition, true anarchy and feral beauty. Founded by vocalist and lyricist Maria Von Lilienstein and multi-instrumentalist, composer and painter David A. Line – a lineup that is still to be completed – Matyria draws inspiration not only from music, but a wide range of different influences like philosophy, film and life on earth itself as a constant source of input. Upholding the original spirit of extreme music, Von Lilienstein believes at the same time in the vital necessity of limitless expression: "As much as I need identity, I need room to breathe to become the most creative and genuine version of myself", she says. "Life is complex. So is our art. A brutal creation of unpredictable tenderness, rejoicing the heart while spitting its remnants in the gutter."
