New song “Beloved” online

Lyncelia "Beloved" single cover

the new song “Beloved” is now online on our Youtube Channel to make you patient until the release of our new album “The Beauty of Doubt” on September 2019.

This song is based on the myth of Andromeda who was unchained to the sea to save her people. “Beloved” is about accepting our fate whatever we need to sacrifice from our life to acheive it.

With “Beloved”, we developed the Gothic-Rock side of our music with a sensual shot of drama by the add of female vocals.

This mid tempo song reminds the best of Gothic-Rock such as The Sisters of Mercy, The Mission or Theatre of Tragedy with the brand that characterizes us from our very first album in 2010.

Enjoy & share!

New Album Release in September 2019

We took the decision to postponed the release date of our new album to September 2019 cause we need extra time to well-finished it.

We had some delay times with the preparation and organization of the previous and next concerts and with the recording of the female vocals.
Amélie was ill during few weeks and we needed to wait until she recover her entire voice to have the best results. We recorded her tracks 2 weeks ago and I’m working on the final mixing of this last song.

Instead of releasing this album in panic, emergency and chaos, we decided to postponed the release date of few months.
We prefer take more times to fine the mixing and mastering of the last song and take some time this summer to shoot a new video to accompany this album release.

This month we’ll publish a lyrics-video of our new single to make you patient until the album and video release.

We hope you’ll understand and we prefer to get extra time to do things the best we can to don’t disappoint you and give you the best album sound and production you deserve.

31/03/2009: First Lyncelia Concert

Lyncelia 10 Years concerts

10 years ago I was playing the very first Lyncelia show. A great experienced that changed my life.

10 years later, still on stage with Lyncelia (and some more weight…)

Between these 2 dates almost everything has changed except my passion for music and my faith for Gothic style. It’s not a fashion for us but a way of life.

The sound of Self-Mystery Girl

Some people ask me how I made the guitar sound of the new song “Self-Mystery Girl”, so I write this article to explain my goal and how I reached it.

First of all the guitar I used for this song is a Fender Stratocaster american model. It features three single coil pickups and I used the position bridge/middle in clean sound.

Lyncelia Fender Self Mystery Girl

After the guitar, I wanted an analog feel so during last years I took analog pedal and I can say that the sound is largely superior to digital ones. This is not a legend that analog pedals are more musical with their unperfection than Digital ones with their perfect restitution of sound.

For “Self-Mystery Girl” I used three stomp pedals:

The MXR Flanger has a really interesting sound, from very subtle to outrageous Jet plane effect. The sound is less brilliant than an Electric Mistress and it fits perfectly this the very clean and brilliant sound of the Fender. While Flanger is a modulation effects, it could be too much but the MXR always fits in the mix without being too presents.

The Delay pedals is an Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man. It’s an analog delay but with tap tempo sync on 1/4. The sound is very dreamy and aerial and always musical. It gives the perfect level of space without being too invading due to its analog path. The sound is largely warmer than Digital Delay that tends to be too clean for me now (I used it for many years and since I played the Memory Man, Digital Delay seems to be a little less personal for me).

And last, I used the TC Electronic Arena Reverb. It’s a Digital Delay (the only one on my pedal board) but the sound is very warm, pristine and pure. It gives the extra space I wanted without being too much. Reverb tends to drown easily your sound in the mix but not the Arena, all fits perfect in the mix.

I didn’t talked about the amp. I used Native Instruments Guitar Rig 5 Pro amp simulator. For this song I used a Marshall Plexi simulation. It’s been a while I used this software and I love it cause it’s simple but very versatile. I used amp simulation cause I can get the sound I want anywhere, any time. No need to do real mic positions in front of a real amp, all is set in the software.

“Self-Mystery Girl” new single and video available

Have you ever felt the mystery of a girl just by looking to her eyes?

Our new hit single video “Self-Mystery Girl” is now available on our channel and the song is also available on Digital Download on our shop www.lyncelia.com/lyncelia-shop and on Bandcamp www.lyncelia.bandcamp.com .

It’s the first song since our last album “Forsaken Innocence” (2016) and it starts a process of posting songs all along the year, and at least it will form an entire album of 7 songs.

This song is anchored in ColdWave reminding the best hours of The Cure or The Sisters of Mercy but with the particularity that characterizes Lyncelia since our very first album “Lovelorn” in 2010.

With “Self-Mystery Girl” We makes the perfect synthesis between our past, present and future and all these influences by mixing Gothic-Rock with ColdWave.
