Manuel Gag­neux ex­pands his vi­sion

Metal Hammer (UK) - - 2018: The Year Ahead -

One of 2017’s breakout stars, Manuel Gag­neux’s Zeal & Ar­dor project en­am­oured the un­der­ground and be­yond. This year, he’s tak­ing his vi­sion even fur­ther.

“It’s more an is­sue of be­ing im­pa­tient,” says Manuel of the pres­sures of record­ing a fol­lowup to Devil Is Fine, stress­ing that he now has the tools to spend more time nur­tur­ing his unique sound. “We’ve been play­ing these new songs since April. We know peo­ple like them and we’re all giddy to re­lease them upon the masses in a well-recorded fash­ion. But these things take time, and now that we have the means, we would like to use them to en­list com­pe­tent peo­ple and equip­ment that ac­tu­ally works!”

While he’s tight-lipped about how the new ma­te­rial will sound on record, he does list his other am­bi­tions for the year: “My main goals are to tour my butt off, re­lease a record I’m happy with and fi­nally learn how to make a beef welling­ton.”

We look for­ward to those tour dates and pos­si­bly a din­ner in­vi­ta­tion.
