This past summer at the Toronto edition of Riot Fest I had a chance to sit down with the Iranian-American act Nostalghia, a collaborative group that combines avant-garde ambient music with classical and gothic undertones along with bit of a heavy metal aesthetic.

I spoke with the trio after a relaxed early-afternoon set to talk about how they arrived at their unique sound, and how they feel about being presented to the metal and punk audiences.
