  • In february Maria Mena was on her "Weapon In Mind"-Tour in Germany. At Live Music Hall in Cologne on the 5th of February we had the great opportunity to take an exclusive behind the scenes look before the official evening show. We got to film the rigging of the stage (setting up spots, instruments etc.) and of course we also filmed the soundcheck. Finally, we manage to compose a little video for you guys which tries to capture what a day on tour is like. So watch the clip and experience how a set comes to life, what kind of work needs to be done before a show and enjoy an unique view behind the scenes look- of course with Maria. Furthermore, the danish support act Mads Langer has a little part in this video as well.

  • Maria was on the cover of the December issue of Norwegian "Stella" magazine. Inside the magazine she is also presented in a stylish and unusal salacious fashion on a number of pictures. We have never seen Maria like this before!

    Besides the beautiful pictures, there is of course also a story featuring Maria in the magazine in which Maria persuades with her honest and sincere manner. For fans, this article is a "must". Maria reveals interesting aspects of her life as a private person and as an artist.

    Because we know that not all fans speak Norwegian, our team member Kora has translated the article into English. You can read the translation in the forum

Afterwards you can discuss with other fans about the show in the forum. But first - Enjoy!
  • Maria Mena hat 730.no etwas zu jedem Song auf ihrem neuen Album "Weapon In Mind" erzählt. So könnt ihr die Songs und die Intention dahinter vielleicht besser verstehen. Wir haben dies für euch übersetzt:

    «Interesting»
    Die Frage, die ich am oftesten höre ist "Jetzt wo du glücklich bist, worüber willst du jetzt noch Songs schreiben?", als ob ich nur Songs schreibe, wenn ich traurig bin. So ist es nie gewesen, dass ist die Antwort auf diese Frage. Das Leben ist nicht schwarz oder weiß und das ist mehr als genug Inspiration, man muss nur die Augen und Ohren offen halten.

    «Fuck You»
    Meine unmittelbare Reaktion auf Internetmobbing.

    «All The Love»
    Vor kurzem habe ich gemerkt, dass ich mich nicht mehr als "Kind" identifiziere. Daher habe ich diesen Song geschrieben, mit dem ich mir und unserer zukünftigen Erweiterung der Familie ein Versprechen gebe..

    «I Always Liked That»
    Dies ist ein Song mit vielen Schichten und er gibt mir immer so viel Kraft, wenn ich ihn höre. Er handelt von meinem derzeitigen Geisteszustand und wie ich erkannt habe, was mir am besten an mir gefällt. Auch mit all meinen Mängeln. Dies ist auch die Inspiration hinter dem Albumtitel "Weapon In Mind". Die Waffe ist das Wissen, dass der einzige Teil von mir, der wirklich zählt, sind mein Herz und meine Seele.

    «Madness»
    Eine Lied darüber, wie man versucht zu verstecken, wer man wirklich ist, vor einer Person die einen kennenlernen möchte.

    «I Love You Too»
    Mein Hochzeitslied

    «You Make Me Feel Good»
    Ich wollte einen Song schreiben der darüber spricht, was für mich die wichtigste Zutat einer gesunden Beziehung ist.

    «Caught Off Guard, Floored By Love»
    Das bin ich und meine Single-Freunde in einem Gespräch am Sonntag Morgen...

    «They're All Telling Stories»
    Über einen dramatischen Schluß einer Freundschaft.

    «Lover Let Me In»
    Ein verzweifelter Song über den Wunsch, dass dir jemand vertraut.

    «I'm Only Human»
    Wir haben alle so viele Schichten. Niemand weiß, was eine andere Person wirklich durchgemacht hat. Es gibt überall Schönheit, aber da sind auch Schmerzen und Trauer. Und was ist mit den Schmerzen, auf die man nicht zeigen und sagen kann: "Hier tut es mir weh.". Dieser Song handelt vom Leiden in der Stille.

    «You Hurt The Ones You Love»
    Als ich klein war, sagte meine Mutter zu mir "Du verletzt die, die du liebst.". Ich dachte, sie meinte damit, dass man manchmal die angreift, die einem Nahe stehen, weil man sich sicher ist. Aber ich nahm das zu wörtlich, als ich klein war. Als frisch verheiratete Frau muss ich meiner eigenen Interpretation von dem was meine Mutter damals zu mir sagte zustimmen. Du verletzt die, die du liebst. Basta. :)

    «The End»
    Ein sehr persönlicher Song.


    Maria talked a little bit about every song of the new album "Weapon in Mind" on 730.no. This might help you to understand the meaning behind each song a little better. We translated it for you:

    «Interesting»
    The question I get the most is: "Now that you are happy, what will you write about?" As if I only write songs when I'm sad. It's never been like that. That's the answer to that question. Life isn't black or white and that is inspiration enough. You just have to keep your ears and eyes open.

    «Fuck You»
    My immediate reaction to cyberbullying.

    «All The Love»
    Not so long ago, I realized I don't identify myself with the "child" anymore. That's why I wrote this song in which I make a promise to the future expansion of the family.

    «I Always Liked That»
    This song has so many layers and it gives me strength when I listen to it. It is about my current state and how I came to the conclusion of what I like most about myself. Despite all the flaws. It is also the inspiration for the title of the album "Weapon in Mind". The weapon is the knowledge that the only part that really matters is my heart and my soul.

    «Madness»
    It's a song about hiding who you really are from a person that wants to get to know you.

    «I Love You Too»
    My wedding song.

    «You Make Me Feel Good»
    I wanted to write a song that talks about what is the most important ingredient in a good relationship to me.

    «Caught Off Guard, Floored By Love»
    That's me and my single friends having a conversation on a Sunday morning...

    «They're All Telling Stories»
    It's about a dramatic end to a friendship.

    «Lover Let Me In»
    A desperate song about the wish that somebody trusts you.

    «I'm Only Human»
    We all have so many layers. Nobody really knows what the other person is really going through. There's beauty everywhere, but there is also pain and sadness. And what about the pain that you can't point to and say "this is where it hurts". This song is about suffering in silence.

    «You Hurt The Ones You Love»
    When I was little, my mom told me: "You hurt the ones you love". I thought she meant that you sometimes attack the ones that are close to you, because you are safe. But I took it too literally when I was little. As a newly married woman, I have to agree with my own interpretation of what my mom told me back then. You hurt the ones you love. That's it.

    «The End»
    A very personal song.


    Maria talked a little bit about every song of the new album "Weapon in Mind" on 730.no. This might help you to understand the meaning behind each song a little better:

    «Interesting»
    Spørsmålet jeg som oftest får er «nå som du er glad, hva kommer du til å skrive låter om», noe som indikerer at jeg bare skriver låter når jeg er trist. Slik har det aldri vært, så dette er svaret på det spørsmålet. Livet er ikke sort og hvitt og det er mer enn nok av inspirasjon, man må bare ha øyne og ører åpne.

    «Fuck You»
    Min umiddelbare reaksjon til mobbing på nettet.

    «All The Love»
    - Nylig innså jeg at jeg ikke lenger identifiserer meg med «barnet», så jeg skrev denne sangen som et løfte til meg selv og fremtidige tillegg til vår familie.

    «I Always Liked That»
    - Dette er en sang med mange lag, og den gir meg alltid så mye styrke når jeg hører den. Den handler om min nåværende sinnstilstand, og hvordan jeg har innsett hva jeg er mest takknemlig for når det kommer til hvem jeg er. Mangler og alt. Dette er også inspirasjonen bak albumtittelen Weapon In Mind. Våpenet er kunnskapen om at den eneste delen av meg som virkelig gjelder er mitt hjerte og min sjel.

    «Madness»
    - En låt om å forsøke å gjemme den man egentlig er fra den ene personen som ønsker å bli kjent med deg.

    «I Love You Too»
    - Min bryllupssang.

    «You Make Me Feel Good»
    - Jeg ville skrive en sang som snakket om det jeg synes er nøkkelingrediensen i et sunt forhold.

    «Caught Off Guard, Floored By Love»
    - Det jeg og mine single venner snakker om søndag morgen...

    «They're All Telling Stories»
    - Om en dramatisk slutt på et vennskap.

    «Lover Let Me In»
    - En desperat sang om å ønske at noen stoler på deg.

    «I'm Only Human»
    - Vi har alle så mange lag. Ingen vet hva en annen person virkelig går gjennom. Det er skjønnhet overalt, men det er også smerte og trishet. Og hva om den smerten ikke er noe du kan peke på og si «det er her det gjør vondt». Denne sangen handler om å lide i stillhet.

    «You Hurt The Ones You Love»
    - Da jeg var liten fortalte moren min meg; «du sårer den du elsker». Jeg tenkte at hun mente at man noen ganger angriper de som står deg nær, fordi det føles trygt, men jeg tok det veldig bokstavelig da jeg var liten. Som en nygift kvinne må jeg si meg uenig med min egen tolkning av det moren min sa til meg. Du sårer den du elsker. Basta :)

    «The End»
    - En veldig personlig sang.
