ISILDURS BANE Add Jinian Wilde To Their Collaborators List

For what it’s worth, ISILDURS BANE‘s formula of having like-minded artists to join their ranks in the studio proved to be successful from the very beginning, when the Swedish proggers invited METAMORFOSI TRIO for a burst of unpredictable creativity on “Mind Vol. 3” back in 2003, but in the following two decades that first attempt was continued by the band’s collaborations with Steve Hogarth on 2017’s “Colours Not Found In Nature” and Peter Hammill on “In Amazonia” and “In Disequilibrium” – issued, respectively, in 2019 and 2021. And now their roster of collaborators is to include one more name: Jinian Wilde.

Wilde used to work with a lot of dance-oriented acts, yet his art-rock credentials are impeccable as well thanks to the singer-songwriter’s stint with David Cross, and still the call from the Scandinavian pursuers of symphonic sound might have been a surprise for him. Anyway, the results of their work – an album titled “The Pearl Of Ever Changing Shell” that’s scheduled for release on February 24th, 2004 – promise to be impressive. As is the ensemble’s modus operandi, the players prepared the music beforehand and then asked the vocalist to come up with top lines and words, giving him a lot of melodic leeway.
