Am I nostalgic about my home country? When I saw the track labelled 'Užupis' (the name of an artistic neighbourhood in my hometown), coming from an EP titled 'Lietuva' (meaning Lithuania in Lithuanian)... I got intrigued! Empusae(BE) has made a great interpretation of Sieben's 'Užupis' adding their signature ominous sound and industrial beats.

ABOUT


Elena

Elena Mara Reed


It was Vilnius Punk-Hardcore scene that introduced me to extreme music and radical politics. As a teen activist I found shelter in various underground venues throughout Lithuania and the rest of Europe. Together with my grrrlfriends, we hosted a radio show 'Atviras Galas' dedicated to non-commercial music and feminist agenda, we set up gigs and naively hoped for significant socio-political changes. Years went by. I moved to the UK. Revolution did not happen. My taste in music became darker, grittier and more bizarre. Post-metal, sludge and doom. Desolation to spare with industrial, experimental, noise, ambient and dark techno.


One grim day I was chatting with a mate about the disappearance of the DIY culture. Mutually grim we mourned. Out of grimness an exciting idea of starting a new platform for extreme music was born. I wanted to give voice to underdogs of the scene, to add a personal, more intimate approach and most importantly to keep it DIY. Mutual Grimness - for extreme music artists and fans, who find catharsis in riffs (and beats) and refuge from the misery of life in music.
