Zeit Interview

jeudi 14 mai 2015 à 06:43

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

The band was actually formed in 2010 after Fur and I jammed a lot in my apartment. It all started with a couple of headphones, my lousy e-drum kit and a guitar. We just started writing stuff and soon found out that we can work well together. In that set-up we released our first self-titled demo in 2013. You still can find some videos of that period.
With a few gigs coming in at the time we decided that we were in need of a bass player and so we brought in our friend Flakmann.

2.So far you have released 3 ep's, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recordings?

Our aim was to get a natural and organic sound which is why we have recorded the last two EP’s in a live setting. We want to represent a sound that we can provide live without layered guitars or faked drums.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

We have kind of urban topics that deal with living and dying in a world filled with strangers and concrete. Maybe you can call it collective loneliness.

4.I know that the bands name means 'time' in German, how does this name fit in with the musical style that you play?

Well, time is relentless and the impetus to everything.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

We played Stahlfest in Leipzig earlier this year which was quite a blast. For our stage performance: Come and find out.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

There will be some shows at the end of the year and maybe a tour in 2016. But there are no final plans yet.

7.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?

It is not our first goal to get onto a label but if someone shows interest, we will have to discuss whether it’s usefull for us or not.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?

So far we had good feedback especially for "Trümmer". Most people are surprised by the diverse influences but seem to get into our style of blending these different musical ideas.

9.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a a part of?

A few are on hold and others are working well too. But I think that I can speak for the whole band when I say that the main musical focus is ZEIT.

10.When can we expect a full length album and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

At the moment we are working on a third and final EP of our "Wintersturm"-trilogy which will be released later this year if everything works out as planned. A full-length is planned afterwards but without any time schedule yet.
The future is not planned out, so we will all see together in which way we are heading. There will always be Black Metal in the core that is for sure. Will we add some Glam Rock one day? Maybe not, but who knows?

11.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?

There are a lot of influences. Everything you hear can inspire you in a positive and negative way. Either you want to make it better than what you have heard or you dig a style of making music. My influences reach from Tom Waits over Sleep to Electric Wizard, Dark Throne and Imperium Dekadenz. Every kind of music you hear influences your own work in my opinion.

12.What are some of your non musical interests?

Hard to say because most things I do are in a way connected to music. Taking photos, visiting shows and writing. All stuff you need to be in the right mood for and music is the valve for this.

13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Give our shit a listen and drink some beers while doing so. Thank you very much for the interview.

Dys Inbunden Interview

mercredi 13 mai 2015 à 06:30
1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and release of the new album?
We have been working hard on promoting the new album. We have also been searching frequently for a drummer and second guitarist to complete the group. And I have been writing new material for the ban

2.Recently you have released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?
I would describe the musical sound on our new opus as very sinister, malevolent and melodic black metal, with a touch of death metal. How does it differ from the previous release? The first opus was not as well thought through or performed. Dys Inbunden has developed a much more technical and darke

3.You label your music as 'Deosophic Metal'. can you tell us a little bit more about this term?
“Deao” is an old English word for death. “Sophic” from the greek word “Sophia” means “teaching wisdom” or “wisdom from”. It is a combination I have invented. It’s meant to mean “teaching wisdom from death”.

4.Some of the lyrics cover occult and left hand path topics, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in these topics?
Well, I worship the Devil and I have decided to devote my life and art to Lucifer, and the left hand path. So naturally the occult and all forms of black magic are of deep interest tome. Satanism is very private and personal to me, so I will not go into much depth concerning the methods of my practise. I believe the Devil is chaos. And it does not matter which way one choses to worship it. Because it all comes back to the same sourcein the end.

5.Originally the band started out as a solo project, what was the decision behind forming a full line up?
 In a way the band still is a “one man show”. I write all the material and lyrics for the band. My bass player Magister Nocturnal joined the band because we get along really well musically. I want Dys Inbunden to be a band not a solo project. I want us to perform live, so that is the only reason behind me forming a full line up.

6.Has the band done any live shows or has this been strictly a studio project so far?
Yes, unfortunately we have only been a studio band for now. That will change very soon! I promise you that.

7.On the fb page it said you where looking for  a drummer and a second guitarist, have you had any luck with that that?
We have had some inquiries from local musicians here in Stockholm yes. We shall see if they have the balls to pull it off with us!

8.The new album was released on Liflatinn Productions, can you tell us a little bit more about this label?
Certainly, it’s my own label. I started it back in 2013 when I released the first Dys Inbunden opus Pandemonium Unchained. We specialise in extreme metal genres. Selling records is fucking hard now days for anyone! But if someone out there reading this feels that they have what it takes. Don’t hesitate! Send me your demo and I will check it out.

9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?
It’s been very good. Nothing but positive reviews and press so far. Black metal fans seem to really like it.

10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
. That’s hard to say really. You are always progressing as a musician, and as a Satanist I don’t know where chaos will take me next! I do know however that we will stay on the path we are on now musically. And take it to more depths and darker extremes for the future!

11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
. Other bands and musical styles have not been the only inspiration for this record. The main inspiration has been the Devil and the Nightside. The main goal with this opus is to invision chaos and what happens after death. And to describe it as well as possible. Bear in mind, that this is a near impossible task for anyone. But as a Satanist that is one of the goals I have.
As for the bands that influenced me. I would have to say that would be: Dissection, Emperor, Behexen, Mayhem, Unanimated, Gorgoroth, Behemoth and Dark Fortress.Now days I’m listening to a lot of music. Not just metal either for that matter. At the moment I’m really into metal bands like Dawn, Belphegor, Craft, Forgotten Tomb and Totalselfhatred. As for non-metal bands that would have to be: The Devil’s Blood, Joy Division, The Black Angels and Roky Erickson.  

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
. Thank you for the interview. FUCK LIFE! HAIL DEATH!

  Throughout  the  recording  there  is  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  the  solos  and  leads  that  are  utilized  stick  mostly  to  a  melodic  musical  direction  and  some  of  the  riffs  bring  in  a  thrash  influence  while  the  musical  style  still  owes  more  to  the  Norwegian  and  Swedish  style  of  black  metal.

  Some  of  the  riffs  almost  get  technical  at  times  and  the  music  sounds  very  modern  while  still  being  very  true  to  black  metal  and  on  some  of  the  later  tracks  there  is  a  brief  use  of  spoken  word  samples  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  on  some  of  the  later  songs  the  vocals  also  get  a  bit  more  deeper  at  times  and  it  also  brings  a  touch  of  death  metal  onto  the  recording.

  The  Ugly  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  is  very  fast,  raw,  heavy  and  aggressive  while  also utilizing  a  decent  amount  of  melody  and  you  can  hear  the  Nordic  style  throughout  the  recording,  the  production  sounds  very  powerful  while  the  lyrics  cover  the  destruction  of  the  universe,  cosmicism,  Luciferian, Necronomicon  and  Sumerian   themes.

  In  my  opinion  The  Ugly  are  a  very  great  sounding  fast  and  aggressive  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "I  Am  Death"  "Crawl"  "Slumber  Of  The  God"  and  "Nibiru".  8  out  of  10.
