Phoenix’ Interview with Tom Englund and Henrik Danhage of Evergrey
Posted on December 22, 2019
Tom Englund and Henrik Danhage of Evergrey came all the way from Sweden to Atlanta, GA in order to promote their brand new album, “The Storm Within,” which released on September 9, 2016 during the ProgPower USA festival. They hosted a listening party on September 8 for a handful of attendees to hear the album pre-release, along having time to chat, take pictures, and sign merch afterwards. Lady Obscure’s Phoenix catches up with Tom and Henrik to talk about the listening party, the new album, and more.
Lacy has been immersed in music her whole life, from “naming that tune” at the age of 1.5 through being classically trained in several instruments through adulthood. She was introduced to the metal genre in late elementary school/middle school by a friend and after a childhood of the top 40, has never looked back since. First exposed to the progressive genre of metal via Dream Theater’s “Images and Words” album, Lacy has been an avid fan of prog metal ever since. Her love of heavy metal and classical music mix well in the progressive, melodic, symphonic, power, and neo-classical styles of metal. An ever-learning student of the field, Lacy loves to learn of new, innovative, and intelligent music in this genre and relishes having the chance to actually review albums and conduct interviews with the musicians themselves to share and to learn about with her fellow metal family. She also enjoys helping the magazine as its CEO. Lacy is an art therapist and author by day and amateur musician by hobby, and currently plays flute, alto flute, oboe, and bass guitar in various ensembles.
