It’s been a bit more than 6 months that our second album “Blind?” was released. Summer is very near (hopefully). Maybe the right moment to take a look back over our shoulder and remember all great things that happened through this tumultuous half-year… so in the next few days, we will repost here videos from our Youtube channel, along with some comments about the events.

But maybe the most important question you would ask could be : “And now, what’s the plan ?”

Well, easy one : let’s go ahead ! We are starting the composition process for our 3rd album right now ! That’s what we’re going to prepare this summer, to be ready (if all goes well) to start recording early 2014. Musical ideas come damn’ quickly. Maybe more brutal, maybe with some lyrical bits, maybe more rock, but always with the “Whyzdom Touch”, with that distinctive “Philharmonic Metal” sound !... and who knows, with our new front woman, no doubt that new ideas are going to emerge !

But that’s not all. Composing does NOT mean that we’re gonna stop touring. We already have gigs confirmed to go on with our “Blind?” European tour : Belgium (2nd nov), France (9th nov), Germany (29th nov) and more to be announced.

So, don’t hesitate to contact us if you want to book WHYZDOM in your city/country !

See you all soon on the road … and on Facebook for our video retrospective !

Here is the first video of the retrospective on a little more than one half-year of Whyzdom's life.

Retrospective #1 :
"Blind?" trailer. It was put online late september. Maybe not all of you know that, in the beginning, we planned to shoot an entire music video in a castle, but the castle actually burnt before we could... and our film director had an accident. So we decided to find another castle (very quickly ! in a few days) and make a simpl...e photo shoot. We asked our friends from X-Nihilo to see if they could grab some video too at the same time to make a trailer too, but without having too much time for that... Finally we found the result awesome !

Retrospective #2 :
Cassandra's Mirror music video. As I said in #1, we didn't really plan to make a whole music video. It was supposed to be a photo shoot... and then 'maybe' a nice trailer... But after having seen the beautiful video takes, X-Nihilo proposed to book the castle one more day in August to make additional footage. The funny thing is that Elvyne could not be there. So, in some images, it's a friend of mine who wears the hooded cape. Of course, since the character is walking *away* from the camera, you never see his face ! Finally, we had only 2 days to shoot everything !!!

Retrospective #3 :
2 months after the release of "Blind?", Elvyne had unfortunately to leave the band because of he studies and her job. We finally found our definitive front woman : Marie Rouyer, who was recommended by Asphodel Puwd. Funny thing : Aspho actually suggested Marie back in January 2012, but I didn't contact her at that time, because she was in a band working on their album, and I didn't feel it was right to divert her from her goal and to jeopardize their work and common commitment. Speaking about that time with Marie, she tells that it was the right thing to do : wait until she was free from another musical engagement. At our 2nd studio session for the recording of this extract (below), it struck me that she was the right one at the right place. Suddenly, I turned towards her and said : "wow, where did you hide all that time ?"

Retrospective #4 :
The "Blind?" european tour started in Germany. We had then a gig near Strasbourg. Early April, we had the great pleasure to be invited in the Netherlands to play with our friends from Ex Libris. The video below is extracted from this show. This first bunch of gigs was really very very important for us. We hadn't played live for quite a long time, and Marie Rouyer was eager to discover Whyzdom fans. She already had many gigs with her previous band, but it was very different for her... partly due to the fact that she had never played abroad. It was quite stressful for her, because obviously, when a band has to face a front woman change, all eyes are focused on the newcomer, and expectations were very high. In this case, she had to prove them not only that she could incarnate characters from to 2 previous albums which were recorded by unique incredible great artists, but also that she could add her own "edge" to the songs. That's exactly what she did. We are very proud of Marie !

Retrospective #5 :
The Dames Of Darkness Fest in the UK was definitely a highlight of the semester for us. It was great to meet again Charlotte, Martijn and all the guys from Delain. Good to share the stage with Apparition, Azylya, Ex Libris too. Good to make new friends, from Chemikill, Incarna... And good to meet our friends from the UK - but not only, since we even had our friend Jack from the US coming to the show ! We're just eager to play in the UK as soon as possible !
Here is "The Spider"... and in our next episode, we'll show another song from that show !
