For the past few weeks, I have been blowing up SkullsnBones and the Twitterverse with my love for the new The Kahless Clone EP, Our Never-Ending Loneliness. It’s a record of deeply emotional and striking instrumental tracks that take the listener on a spectacular voyage of passion and emotion. The Kahless Clone grew from November’s Doom‘s Vito Marchese.
We recently had the chance to talk with Marchese and pick his brain about this new project and stellar new release.
Vito … Wow! What can I say but bravo! I have not been able to stop listening t9o the new record since I got it!
Well, thatnk you. That means a great deal to us.
How do you feel about the finished product?
We’re extremely happy, I think. It’s a very special record to me and the other guys so to see it finally out is amazing.
And, the reviews. Nothing but kudos from everything I have read.
Yes. That is very satisfying. To know it’s being appreciated and loved is something, I think every musician hopes for when putting out a new record.
Now, with being involved with November’s Doom and The Kahless Clone … is it hard when a new song comes into your head, deciding which band it will be for?
No, not at all. The songs I come up with really do stand out for me specifically for each band.
The fact that The Kahless Clone is an all instrumental band … the thought behind it?
I think the idea with an instrumental project is that it leaves the interpretation of the song up to the listeners. You get what you want and hear in each track. It’s not as if the songs have lyrics that will pretty much dictate to the listener what each song is about.
So, the record is out and you have the big record release party coming up aqt the Elbo Room in Chicago.. You must be excited.
You have no idea! To finally be able to perform these songs live in their entirety to an audience with the record out is something we are really looking forward to in the next couple f weeks.
Do you have a favorite track off f the record?
I think it would be “This Is All Falling Apart”.
Yeah, I think I agree, that it’s one of my favorites, as well.
The Kahless Clone. Our Never-Ending Loneliness. Chicago is showing up as a city to watch for amazing bands and even more amazing music. Buy the record, see the band.
