1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
Blliigghhtted is a band that explores the history and philosophy of dark spirituality through audial mediums. It is a psychodrama in which we recreate great works of possessed art and mix them with our avant-garde visions both in essence and form.
2.Recently you have released a demo, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?
I think you did a really good job when you said “Blliiigghhted creates a 30 minute track that is very ritualistic as well as remaining in a slow direction from beginning to end and you can hear a mixture of grim and depressive black metal in the vocals, doom metal and melodies in the guitars and a dark ambient and atmospheric background, the production sounds very dark, while the lyrics cover Satanism and Luciferian themes.” I also would like to say that I really like your cut to the chase reviews in general.
3.On the demo, you did a 30 minute track, what was the decision behind creating a long song instead of putting out a recording that has shorter songs on it?
This is ceremonial music, and ceremonies take time.
4.On the album you had 3 different concepts "Macbeth" "The Sacrifice" and “Chaosophy", can you tell us a little bit more about fusing these 3 concepts together in a 30 minute track?
The influences of “Macbeth” by Shakspeare and “The Sacrifice” by Tarkovsky are purely in the title and the main instruments. “Which Of You Have Done This?” is what Macbeth utters to his lords when he sees the ghost of his victim while he is in their council. “Which Of You Have Done This? The Lords” is what Alexander utters to himself when he sees a miniature of the sacrifice in Tarkovsky’s “Offret”. The images that which create these uttering’s are both of the one tyrannical god in my opinion. Both these characters are mentally insane and are possessed by uncertainty. I wanted to connect their sublime uncertainty to their inner fire of Chaos rather than a mere lack of faith. I have given the boys the homework to study these concepts and works to spiritually interpret them with their instruments. Emir was to interpret Offret with his guitar while Deniz was to do Macbeth with the synth. They did a good job at the common theme of possession whilst preserving the Works’ unique qualities, namely depression and madness respectively.
5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Blligghhtted'?
Interlacing of Blighted and Light.
6.Has this band done any live shows or is this strictly a studio project?
“The Lords” is an improvised and live recorded song actually. Only the best of our friends are accepted into these kinds of ceremonies. Emir told me he already received some live performance offers. Neither I nor Merdümgiriz wants to play to people we do not know.
7.Can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork that is presented on the album cover?
It’s stolen from a book called Kill Without Joy, which tells in detail how to process a murder. Those finger fighting daggers, purely used for murderous intention, can be linked to Macbeth, but let your mind and the magic of the work wrap your conscious rather than me elaborating.
8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by those that have heard it so far?
I haven’t heard much feedback, its good so far. Some dumb losers who haven’t the slightest clue about the power of darkness have criticized the intensity and length of it, but I want to see their faces when we release our next album which will destroy goat cunts.
9.What is going on with some of the other musical or non musical projects these days that the band members are involved with?
We are, as you may know, a band called Viranesir on the more incestuous parts of our artistry, and we have made like 3 new albums to be released for it, one metal, two psych-synth punk. Emir has been working on a Yayla album since he released Nihaihayat, it is simply crazy so far, can’t wait for 2015. He will also release two anti-cinema masterpieces sooner. Deniz is working on a Destroyers Of History album that has to do with our master Atatürk.
10.Are there any other plans to release more albums or recordings with this band in the future?
We are recording an album called “Purge Me Satan”.
11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on this band?
Some that I can think right off the bat are; Abruptum, iLdjarn-Nidhogg, (purely the early incantations of) Deathspell Omega, Dissection, Inquisition, Haus Arafna, The Cure, Mortiis, Bethlehem, John Frusciante, Manierisme, Nenia C’Alladhan, Poésie Noire, Til Det Bergens Skyggene, Ulver, Velvet Cacoon.
12.What are some of the band members non musical interests?
Emir is spending a good amount of his days hand-making merchandise for his label and Deniz is doing promo for it. They are also surfing all day long pleasing their sick fantasies in deep web. I practice black arts.
13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Thanks so much for the interview, fuck islam in the virgin cunt.
