Gitarristen i PAGAN’S MIND diskuterar sin låtskrivarprocess och säger att bandet kommer att släppa ett nytt album i slutet av året eller tidigt nästa år.

Jorn Viggo Lofstad, gitarrist i det norska proggmetalbandet PAGAN’S MIND, var nyligen intervjuad på en hemsida beträffande den kreativa låtskrivarprocessen han och hans band använder när de skriver musik. Utöver detta delade Lofstad med sig av uppgifter om sin framtid som musiker samt gav en inblick i det kommande skivsläppet med PAGAN’S MIND.


Många låtskrivare kämpar med problemet med att antingen planera ut skrivandet av låtar i förväg eller improvisera dem i ögonblicket. När Lofstad blev frågad om detta svarade han: “I generally write songs in a pretty spontaneous manner. I never think to myself that I am going to sit down and start writing a song. Whenever I write by myself, it’s like a singer-songwriter approach. Many times I will grab my acoustic guitar and just play ideas until I come up with something that sounds good enough to record. Then I record the idea on my phone to review them later and eventually take them with me to the studio where I do pre-production with them. That’s how I normally go about it.”

Dessutom kämpar de flesta låtskrivare med att lära sig begrepp inom musikteori och det är mycket omdebatterat huruvida man ska bry sig om det eller inte. Lofstad behandlar detta genom att säga: “Understanding things from a theoretical standpoint is not too important in my opinion. I have always played music by ear. This is in contrast to the other members in the band who are very knowledgeable about all things music. Many times I will play something that sounds good, and later they will explain to me what I did. Usually I will just play something to them and they understand, so it’s cool.”

Lofstad diskuterar även sina planer på att släppa ny musik, och avslöjar på ett ungefär när nästa album med PAGAN’S MIND kommer. “Lately we’ve been trying to build a bridge between the progressive style and a more melodic heavy metal style. For now, the stuff we have been working on sounds similar to our older stuff. It has a very epic and heavy feel to it. Currently we have an album of about ten to twelve songs that we will release. The album will be out between 2013 and early 2014.”

Han fortsätter sedan med att avslöja sina planer på ett nytt soloprojekt: “I’ve got a ton of stuff I have created that has never been released. In Pagan’s Mind we have our own particular style, we can play a little heavy metal but it also needs to fit into our genre that we have established over the years. Currently I have about sixteen songs that are totally finished and I am just looking for the right singer now. Then after we (Pagan’s Mind) have released our next album, I will begin recording a debut album with this new band. I’m not leaving Pagan’s Mind or anything, but I am really excited for these other tracks and I have a lot of confidence in their quality. I can’t wait for people to hear it.”
