We all miss festivals, but have you ever thought about how we experience them as women? Should all festivals have women-only camping areas? And are there even enough female musicians good enough to be on festival billings? In this episode, Kiki, Pia, and Steffi discuss their experiences at festivals, how important it is to have more and more women on festival stages, and how we can make female musicians more visible. This is our last episode before our first-ever summer break. We will be back in September but, until then, you can give our other episodes a listen.

Many games have included metal music in their soundtrack and their concept. Of Bird & Cage started the other way around. Composer Arnold Nesis tells Kiki and Pia about how he and his metal band wrote an album and decided to turn it into a story-driven video game. After discussing the game and the music, we discuss important subjects from the overlap between music and gaming, like financing, licensing, and why the music industry as it is now can't tap into the wealth of gamers around the world.

Leoni is Head of Media Relations and Tiffany is Head of Marketing in one of the biggest record labels in heavy music, Nuclear Blast. We had the pleasure of talking to them about their work, sexism in Metal, and marketing strategies for newcomer bands. The fact that women have always been a part of the heavy music scene and belong in Metal is apparently still not anchored in the brain of many metalheads. Leo and Tiff are doing a great job standing up to sexist comments in the social media posts of Nuclear Blast.

We've known Sophia Aslanides since 2013 and have happily watched her band SEASON OF GHOSTS grow throughout these years. Our latest talk with her and her partner in music and life, Zombie Sam, was entertaining and informative as we discussed different aspects of live streaming: from community building to business. Tune in to learn how SEASON OF GHOSTS streams live on YouTube and how the two digital marketers work together behind the scenes of their music. Additionally, Kiki offers some insight about streaming on Twitch and why she thinks Discord (and not Tik Tok) is the new social media star - mostly because, unlike on the usual social platforms, there are no brands selling you things, people can connect more intimately in a safe space, and have less pressure to show a picture-perfect life.

"Glare Of Deliverance" was released worldwide on December 4, 2020, via Eclipse Records and produced by Tommaso Monticelli. It is a series of ten individual songs, each with its own music video. These "episodes" combine in sequence like a short film or television series that tells the story of a young woman named Eleanor, who is persecuted by the Holy Inquisition.

We've known PERSONA for a while, at least vocalist Jelena Dobric and guitar player Melik Khalifa. The couple moved from Tunisia to Germany two years ago and reformed their band there. They're currently writing music and recording songs for their third, still-untitled album. Therefore, they started a crowdfunding campaign with a lot of cool perks. For those of you who want to know how PERSONA sound nowadays, there is already a video online for the first single 'Alpha'. The music, once again, transformed and became more modern.
