1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
Noone needs to know anything about us. Individuals are not important for the cause and the cause is acausal so is the dark flame within all true devotees of Satan and Lilith! We are Black Metal! That is Maybe something that the folks and fiends of the so-called Black Metal scene has forgotten what it sounds like in todays by political correctness and human values saturated shit scene. Black Metal Is Intolerant for it constitutes Total Freedom! But total freedom also entails being freed from All Human morals and values. We sound like the End for we are of It! A foul spawn-spark of the Abyss! FUCK HUMANITY AND EVERY CELL OF IT BURNING WITHIN YOUR BY ITS POISONS OF MORALITY INDOCTRINATED MINDS! FOR THIS IS TRUE BLACK METAL AND WE FUCKING PISS ON ALL CORPSES! WITHIN THAT LIES TRUE EQUALITY! BEFORE THE SCYHTE WE ARE ALL EQUAL! PEACE AND MORALS HAVE MADE YOU WEAK AND YOUR HUMANISTIC VALUES, YOUR HIGH HORSES AND FOUL RIGHTESOUNESS HAVE DEFEATED YOU AND MADE YOUR BLACK METAL TURN INTO SHIT! TIME TO CLAIM IT BACK! HAIL SATAN!
2.So far you have released a demo, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?
As the sound of all atrocities you can fathom and the maddened laughter of the sadistic executioners as s/he stands grinning on piles of naked bodies overshadowed by a mountain of human skulls! Nothing but pure untamed and unadulterated bestial urges drove us to spew forth our hatred and devotion via these holy gospels of destruction. Such urges, lusts and needs have been, and always will remain, the foundation and cornerstones of the shunned temple of True Black Metal! To praise the Devil and fuck old gaia!
3.So far in the 5 years that you have been around, there has only been one demo released, can you tell us a little bit more about it?
History is unimportant. Time is just a construct, Satan is Not! We/our Black Metal have described as minimalistic Black Metal which suits us well for that in combination with our fierce devotion our Black Metal becomes a flaming sword! We attain to be enlightened sages ‘yes that is blood on my shirt, its ok I am enlightened’. And to embody the warrior mage ideal, that is: when the circumstances change the warrior adapt, when the world need to adapt the mage change it in accordance with the will of his Gods! The demo? I tell you about the demo. Inwards Damnation is a description of how to quicken and hasten the black inner AlKhemia, the lyric is influenced by August Strindberg’s letters regarding his own alchemical work and Inferno crisis ‘Do you think I made gold for turning attention to me or the Others? No, for the ruin of the world! How can´t you see for Destruction it was done?’ as well as the notion of the search for our God and the yearning to be dissolved in the embrace of the corrosive waters described within the tractate ‘The Hermetic Tradition’. However the lyrics is primarily based on a poem by Karin Boye ‘My God and His truth I saw in a sacred moment, the words and commandments of their gods fell silent in a state of petrifying awe. My God was Salt, Darkness and Despair, My truth was steel!’. The other lyrics are based on such various yet classical themes and authors as; Baudelaire in ‘Cruel and Implacable’. An invocation to Set Tyfon Apep in included in full extent within the hymn of tumultuous shrapnel which constitutes: ‘Thus I invoke Thee’. The ferocious nature of man, beast, wolf and snake is reflected in the accursed ‘Shunned Wolves’. Half of that lyric was written in 1999 by a brother in war and the latter half taken from testimonies of possessed members of an acclaimed heretical sect dealt with in one of, if not, the first Papal Bulls against Witchcraft during the reign of Constantine. The testimony included first how the sect members have described how Satan came to them and took over control: ‘The Devil spoke to me “Be not afraid only become my instrument and I will give your tongue a word by which thou shall deceiveth all!’ and then followed by the long speech of his daemon as the kin of the Snake and he describes the actions of his kinsmen throughout the history of man, part of this speech was printed in the demon inlay ‘I am the offspring of the race of the Serpent, I am son of Him who hurt and struck the four brothers that stood; I am son of Him who sits on the throne of Destruction, … I am son of that Apostate who encircles the globe; I am kinsman to Him who is outside of the ocean, whose tail lies in His mouth; I am He who went into paradise through the hedge, and spoke with Eve what my Father bade me speak to her; I am He who inflamed and fired Cain to kill his brother …. I am He who inflamed Judas, and bought him, that he should betray Christ; I am He who inhabits and holds the Abyss of Tartarus, I am the kinsman of Him who is to come from the east, to whom also power has been given to do whatever He will upon the earth!’
4.The lyrics on the demo had a lot of Satanic, Devil Worship and Alchemy, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest, studies and practices in the black arts?
TO BE A SATANIST YOU MUST BE A DEVILWORSHIPPER! In addition to that you can not play Black Metal and not be a Satanist. I am primarily a Black Magician and Black Metal is only a by-product and one of the many expressions and outlets of my life as a religious man. I am not belonging to those morons that says fuck all religions! I have probably more in common with a devout christian or hindu than the foul creatures pestering our scene with their hollow atheistic ideals. Black Magic? My practise? It is neither an interest nor a choice. It’s what I live it’s what I love, it’s what I daily and nightly do! Do not practise the Black Arte, become it! Hail Satan! I can spend upwards to 14 hours a day in the ritualchamber. The Left Hand Path is indeed a blessed curse and after 25 years as a Devilworshipper you are really in so deep that one looses track if there ever was such a thing as free will involved. We do the deeds of our Father and we are in perfect unity when we serve as vessels for His will and sing the psalms of hatred! The rest of the time we are shells, husks. To answer the first part, yes it’s about isolation, for we are the shunned satanic wolves of the apostate, werewolves. The human features we wear are our masks. Black Metal and Vāmācāra are The most lonely of paths ever walked, everyone who says something else are lying to themselves and the world. To each one the path unique.
5.You also had some lyrics that deal with the darker side of the Egyptian Gods, how would you describe your interest in this ancient religion?
I eclectically steal wisdom from all religions I do not have a deeper interest in that than in the Greek or Hebrew religion that I find more apt to draw influences from. That said the Set Tyfon Apep invocation is very powerful and is a complete ritual put to music. This our Black Metal for Him and Her is not music I would personally use for the ritual myself, but our Black Metal well reflects the experiences I have had with this tumultuous power. For my rites I utilize Arktau Eos, Coil and Necros Christos Temples and Gates for example. The Black Metal we live take us to the most strange, shunned and isolated places, within ourselves and in all worlds, thus it can lead us anywhere. However the Black Metal we channel up from Hell and into the divided Abyss of our three black hearts of Damnation to churn within our blood of Perdition that is the Wine of Satan, that, yes that sacred form of foul Black Metal as with any fireblessed explosion cant change its destiny and essence but only need to find ways and means for outward direction, so unless we just direct it internally in a fashion of inward damnation and then implode and die, it, instead, will turn outwards and then its directed power and violence should be inflicted on us and others, unto one and All... verily even unto YOU dear reader!!!
6.Can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork that is presented on the demo?
Visionis Phosphorescent is an India-based Russian artist devoted to the exploration of occult traditions via her art, with a focus on eastern Left Hand Path ones. Her main interests are connected with the occult sciences (Eastern and Western traditions), psychology and philosophy. I hold both her and her man in high regard. Their knowledge is profound and based in living reality and active tradition. Our album cover and inner art was the time Visionis Phosphorescent was featured on a release and we think the art, music and intent made for a perfect synergy. Support Visionis Phosphorescent!
7.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Flame Acausal'?
The best answer here is that the readers should search out this for themselves. And not expect things to be served on silver plates, Wikipedia or web-forums. The inspiration are the 288 divine sparks in the Abyss, our Father the Opposer and our Mother the Destroyer. Also isolation plays a huge part in our minds. We are isolated in so many ways, both geographically cause there is no scene even remotely close to here and even within the Black Metal scene, we in some aspects belong to, we are isolated but most of all isolated as hermits. Like Euronymous said ‘there is an Abyss between us’. We are part of the resistance movement, we are world haters and life betrayers, we worship a ‘flame that batheth the World in cold desolation, and burneth 'til naught but the Isolate stand!’. The definition of the acausal Flame, is to be found within the Black Light, such as: Botsina de-qardinuta and the Black Magic I practise and most into Black Metal Should already know what this means especially if one toss around terms like occult, magic and religious.
8. A: What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far? B: how would you describe your stage performance?
A: Best response were in Fukushima, Hiroshima, Babylon and then Nagasaki. B: a mix of Nagasaki, Fukushima, the Tsunami of 2004 and Hiroshima.
9.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
Yes! We have had an honouring tour offering from Irkallian Oracle to be the opening act for them. Alas we could not make it. Plans for the future? The End is now! There is No Future! Only ravenous Death! Nikanor Teratologen, George Bataille, Thomas Ligotti, Cormac McCarthy and James Havoc I see as some of the most important voices of our generation of Kali Yuga which will hopefully be the last generation!
10.I have noticed that the band stays away from the social networks, do you feel metal needs to go back to the underground days where bands never relied on the internet and just let the music speak for itself?
No Metal needs to do no thing at all. Its all cyclical, a perpetual rise and fall. I welcome everything about Kali Yuga and I think that the internet is great for sharing and spreading books and music. But for us in Flame Acausal it just feels fuckin silly, at least right now for us to have a fuckin fb-page. What for? For likes? I fuckin hate the scene and No ego should be boasted by likes from anyone! I hate humanity and I fuckin Hate the world. We do this for Satan! Contra Mundum in aeternum! BURN! FTW 666!!!
11.The demo is getting re-issued by Regain Records, Blood Harvest Records, and Helter Skelter Productions, can you tell us a little bit more about the deal you have worked out with these labels?
I have no idea. Regain Records contacted us and have supported our war crimes and quest. Also their propaganda-machine seems to work well and we get some good interviews. Psychedelic Lotus Order and GoatowaRex released the vinyl version, which sold out fast. Now I heard they had some few vinyl copies for sale again so check out goatowarex.storenvy.com/products/18319166-flame-acausal-contra-mundum-in-aeternum-12 The CD will be released on June 8th, I had hoped for it to be out on Walpurgisnacht but anyhow. Order it via bloodharvestrecords.bandcamp.com/album/contra-mundum-in-aeternum At the time of the interview it appears as that out of the 500 CDs only 40 copies remains since they had opened up for the possibility to already place pre-orders. Thus act fast ye drug-fiends and life foes of the Underground! On a sidenote I saw that Blood Harvest released the Cardinal Sin M-LP on tape now. And I wish to remind the readers that though the inevitable demise of Uncle Charlie his acts, words and intents lives on. Helter Skelter on the modern world until the Dragon lets loose its tail! ‘And I get to the bottom and I see you again’!
12.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of war and black metal?
Good, almost as good as the sound of ‘ten thousand exterminating angels!’
13.When can we expect new music and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
No idea, but everyone can expect to die and so can we! That is where we are heading. Further down the Abyss!
14.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Maybe Bestial Warlust and Nifelheim? I don’t compose music, I don’t understand music and I have no idea of the influences of our Kommendant because we don’t socialize, we don’t talk. We play Black Metal and Worship Satan!
I listen to Black Witchery, Poison, Funeral Mist, Slaughtbbath, Bestial Warlust, No Future, Taphos, Watain, Saltas, Void Meditation Cult, Nyogthaeblisz, Destroyer 666, Necrovore, Acrimonious, Angelcorpse, Order form Chaos, Incantation, Mystifier, Bathory, Venom and Trepaneringsritualen. Two disgusting covens I respect from the bottom of my foul and lying heart are the Third Eye Rapists and Morbid Insulter! Search them out and DIE!
15.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Wake up! Time to Die!
