The Metal Asylum Talks To… MISS TORSION!

Can you tell us about the origin of the band name, a history of the band
and a little bit about the various members?

“Miss Torsion” was a song title of my band “Lowest Fi” in which I sing and
play guitar. “Miss Torsion” is my solo project and there is no band yet. I
record everything at home in a home recording studio, except for the voice
which I record in a professional studio. The drums are programmed, because
I can’t play drums.

Are you all from the same area? How did you get together as a band?
Who are your favourite artists/bands and how have they influenced
your own sound?

I was a teenager in the 80s and very receptive to everything dark. It was only
logical that I was drawn to the gothic scene. “Bauhaus, Christian Death,
Virgin Prunes, Killing Joke etc. were my heroes. Later I also liked metal and
rock. Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and Iron Maiden were on constant rotation.

Later came the grunge and desert rock phase with Soundgarden and Kyuss. I
still like all these bands and they influenced me. Current favourite bands
change all the time. At the moment it’s the band “Ghost” which I like very

Did you always have the ambition to be a musician and in a band or did
you originally have other plans?

When I was a child, I wanted to be an alchemist. But music has always been
something wonderful for me. The urge to play in a band came as soon as I
plugged my electric guitar into an amplifier for the first time.

Do you sing in the shower?

Not only in the shower. I sing often and on many occasions, even at the risk
of annoying the people around me. It’s great to sing while cooking.

Do you have any plans for the band for this year and into next year?

I still have a lot to learn about film. I also make the music videos myself. I
enjoy expressing myself in pictures. Today’s technology gives wings to the

When I have enough songs for a live show, I will look for the right musicians
to give concerts with.

Do you currently have any new songs/albums ready to be released?

On 13 September I’m going to Soundfarm Studio to record the vocals for a
new single called “Lost”. I will again be working with Anna Murphy who is the
sound engineer at Soundfarm Studios. She is not only a brilliant musician
(Cellar Darling) but also an excellent sound engineer.

If you could play at any venue in the world where would you choose?

I think Wacken would be really fun

Do you have a favourite album? If so, what is it?

It’s difficult to settle on one, but “Wildhoney” by Tiamat is timeless.

Do you have any guilty pleasure songs/albums?

“Maria Magdalena” by Sandra

If you were putting together the greatest show on earth, who would be

Can you remember the first album you bought with your own money?
What was it and do you still have it?

It was a maxi-single, back then you didn’t know CD’s: “Everything Counts” by
Depeche Mode, and yes I still have it.

As your fans will be reading this, is there any message you would like
to send out to them?

Be happy, dance and sing and stay hydrated.
