Still, the musical experimentations along with the passionate and creative improvisations are here, cuz they are the very essence of this “kind of music”, in a way.
 

Paul Roland with Mick Crossley - Grimmer Than Grimm

Paul Roland is an interesting case. An eclectic songwriter and performer, that transcends categorization as his music dwells between psychedelia, baroque, pop, folk, gothic, rock… you name it. Far too often inspired by classic literature, horror stories, the occult and paranormal, he does so, not in light “theatrical” way, despite his music having great atmosphere and theatricality. A person who’s explored and written about the paranormal and an author himself, he has a certain authority on the matter.
