Kiki had a fun interview with Dutch guitarist Merel Bechtold, just before DELAIN left for their North American tour. Merel tells us about her musical upbringing, the Indiegogo campaign that helped release her band’s album and the things she teaches her students besides guitar (see quote).
We hope you enjoy this episode of the Metal & High Heels Podcast and don’t forget to subscribe to listen to the next episode, in which Kiki, Pia, and Steffi will be reunited, after several episodes of only two of the three podcast co-hosts.
Metal & High Heels Podcast – Episode 23: A talk with Merel Bechtold.
Recorded on April 11th and 12th, 2018.
M&H Podcast 23 – Show Notes from our chat with Merel Bechtold:
- Our podcast episode, where Pia and Steffi talk about Death Metal (and Black Metal)
- PUREST OF PAIN’s video for their song ‘Vessels’
- The comments Kiki refers to about the conversation around the ‘Vessels’-video on Merel’s Facebook:
- Merel’s website, where you can contact her for guitar lessons, for example.
- DELAIN’s tour dates – to see Merel live!
- Fans are “shipping” Merel and DELAIN-singer Charlotte Wessels under the “couple’s name” Merlotte and #merlotte is a thing on Instagram – careful though, there’s a Colombian Pop-Rock band with a female singer with that name using the hashtag as well.
Listen to the album “Solipsis” by Merel’s band PUREST OF PAIN:
