Stupor Mundi Interview

mercredi 18 avril 2018 à 05:51
1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?
1 The project is a one man band born in 2016  , i started with rehearsing various songs and i written various lyrics abouts politics and society .
Stupor Mundi is a political band and is born because i have various thing to talk about , especially political and i really enjoy to listen and play black metal music

2.So far you have released a demo and a split, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on both of the recordings?
2 The sound is raw and it want to  give the atmosphere of the class struggle  and the revolution ,  things that are hard and violent .

3.Your lyrics cover Marxism, Communism, and Left Wing Politics, can you tell us a little bit more about what these mean to you?
3 It is a important thing for me , i started with communist history but i try to extend this to present because i want to talk about our society.
In "non è finita" from the split i tried to mix history and actuality: 30 years ago with the collapse of berlin wall the corporate business said to us that history is ended and the world will be more rich and developed but is a lie , and history is not ended : marxism for me is a response to this lie , because in europe the workers are losing their rights and unemployed are growing . in the whole word the rich became more rich and poor more poor so i think that is class struggle and a good response is to give power to the workers , against multinationals and great corporations that starve the world.


4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Stupor Mundi'?
4 I like middle age history and i chose stupormundi because it is the second name of Federico II , an emperor who was a great enemy of the catholic church that divided a lot italian people

5.With this project you record veryting by yourself, would you be open to working with other musicains if they shared the same visions musically and politically?
5 yes , and not only to other musicians but other bands

6.Recently you where a part of a split with 'Red Star Kommando', what are your thoughts on the other project that was a part of the recording?
6 i think that is a very good project and it can gain a lot of support

7.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?
7 I have not received interests , i dont look for a particular label but im open to all labels.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?
8 I see  more support in Europe and Latin America , most of the positive feedbacks come from counties like Brazil , Italy , Russia

9.When can we expect a full length and also where do you see yourself heading into musically during the future?
9 For the start of next year and in the future i see me in  this musical direction

10.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?
10 Bands like mayhem , xasthur , iskra and punaterrori and Voland are very important in the creation of my music , I listen also hardcore / anarcho punk  , Death   metal and skinhead music in general .

Trautonist/Ember/Wolves And Vibrancy Records/2018 Full Length Review

mercredi 18 avril 2018 à 05:35

  Trautonist  are  a  band  from  Germany  that  has  had  an  album  reviewed  before  in  this  zine  and  plays  a  mixture  of  post  black  metal  and  shoegaze  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2018  album  "Ember"  which  will  be  released  in  May  by  Wolves  And  Vibrancy  Records.

  A  very  hard  shoegaze  influenced  sound  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  clean  vocals  a  few  seconds  later  while  the  music  also  gets  very  atmospheric  at  times  as  well  as  all  of  the  musical  instruments  having  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  the  solos  and  leads  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  post  rock  style. 

  Some  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  while  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  amount  of  angry  sounding  black  metal  screams  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  can  be  heard  which  also  gives  the  songs  a  more  raw  feeling  as  well  as  the  tracks  also  bringing  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  when  clean  guitars  are  utilized  they  give  the  music  more  of  a  progressive  feeling.

  Trautonist  creates  another  recording  that  remains  true  to  their  mixture  of  post  black  metal  and  shoegaze,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  heavy  while  the  lyrics  cover  alienation,  drugs  and  melancholic  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  album  from  Trautonist  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  post  black  metal  and  shoegaze,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Fire And  Ember"  "The  Garden"  and  "Sunwalk".  8  out  of  10.

Skyborn Reveries/Winter Lights/Naturmacht Productions/2018 CD Review

mercredi 18 avril 2018 à 01:54

  Skyborn  Reveries  are  a  solo  project  from  Australia  that  plays  an  atmospheric  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2018  album  "Winter  Lights"  which  will  be  released  in  May  by  Naturmacht  Productions.

 Ambient  style  synths  start  off  the  album  and  also  mix  in  with  the  heavier  sections  of  the  music  while  the  solos  and  leads  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  fashion  along  with  the  vocals  being  mostly  grim  black  metal  screams  as  well as  the  riffs  also  using  a  great  amount  of  melody  and  most  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  All  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  while  the  music  gets  very  atmospheric  at  times  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  briefly  on  a  few  tracks  a  small  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  can  be  heard  which  gives  the  music  more  of  a  raw  feeling  along  with  the  music  sticking  to  mostly  a  slower  direction  and as  the  album  progresses  an  ambient  instrumental  can  also  be  heard  before  returning  back  to  a  heavier  direction.

  Skyborn  Reveries  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  is  very  epic  and  atmospheric  sounding  while  also  adding  in  a  great  amount  of  ambient  elements,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  an  idea  of  ascending  to  a  dreamlike  realm  and  becoming  one  with  the  natural  forces  of  the  world.

  In  my  opinion  Skyboarn  Reveries  are  a  very  great  sounding  atmospheric  black  metal  solo  project  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Winter  Lights"  "The  Forgotten"  and  "Of  Mountains  And  Tranquil  Skies".  8  out  of  10.

Thy Feeble Saviour Interview

mercredi 18 avril 2018 à 00:22
1.Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

Currently just promoting the new album release and always writing new material.

2.You have your first full length coming out in March, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from your previous demo's and splits?


First off, the album is already available on cassette and CD format from Hell's Headbangers. The Lp version is scheduled to be out late March/early April also through Hell's Headbangers. The album can be described as raw, evil, black, death hate! No wimp shit!! You will hear riffs in our songs. yes, RIFFS!! All the previous recording were done on a 4 track cassette recorder so the sound was even more raw. We went for a good sounding rehearsal on the album and I think we achieved it. You can hear all instruments yet it is raw eventhough it was recorded with better equipment.

3.The music project was on a hiatus for 8 years, what was the decision behind getting the musical project going again?

I had talked to Matt several times before we actually got together about possibly recording some THY FEEBLE SAVIOUR tracks. He is a great drummer and his style fits perfectly to what I write. I've known him for years and have worked together on other things. We just decided one day to give it a shot since we both had time to do it. I wrote 6 songs which ended up being the BLASPHEMIC DISGUST Demo which came out in 2015.



4.The lyrics on the recordings are very  blasphemous and anti Christian, can you tell us a little bit more about your hatred from Christianity or other Abrahamic faiths?

We don't care for any religious vomit. Growing up in Texas you are bombarded with Christianity so naturally our hatred and disgust for the Christian religion is strong.

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Thy Feeble Saviour'?

I took that from and Incantation song called Golgotha from the first album. I just thought it was a perfect name for a band.

6.Originally the band was a solo project, what was the decision behind expanding into a duo?

Matt and I had worked together before and his drumming style is perfect for the riffs I write and he is a much better drummer than I could ever be.  He and I work well together so it was an easy decision to make. Plus not having to do everything myself is a plus.

7.You have been compared  to 'Profanatica' and also had Paul Ledney help you in getting a deal with 'Hell's Headbangers', do you feel it is a huge honor to be compared to this legendary band and also capture their attention?

On the 2004 demo and the split 7 inch there's no doubt about the influence Profanatica had on me. Been listening to them since their early days. On the new stuff it's less Profanatica inspired but there still are some of their influences for sure. Paul and I have been in contact for many years. He's always liked the stuff I did which was a huge honor. I sent him a copy of the Blasphemic Disgust demo tape and he liked it a lot. He sent it over to Chase from Hell's Headbangers and not too long after that  I heard from Chase about wanting to release a THY FEEBLE SAVIOUR album.

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

So far, from what I've seen, we've been getting a great response about what we are doing. Appreciate all the support we have gotten from Headsplit Records, Nero One Records and Hell's Headbangers in helping us get our shit out there to the maniacs worldwide.

9.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?
Lots of late 80's/early 90s black/death metal is where we get influence from for THY FEEBLE SAVIOUR.

10.Does Satanism or Occultism play any role in your music?
No. We do not subscribe to any sort of religion.

11.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Thanks for the interview. You can purchase our album from the mighty Hell's Headbangers!!

Aisuragua/In Morte Veritas/Hidden Marly Production/2018 CD Review

mardi 17 avril 2018 à 03:37

  Aisuragua  are  a  solo  project  from  Spain  that  has  had  an  album  reviewed  before  in  this  zine  and  on  this  recording  plays  a  very  depressive  and primitive  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2018  album  "In  Morte  Veritas"  which  was  released  by  Hidden  Marly  Production.

  A  very  dark  sounding  intro  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  drones  and  ambient  style  synths  while  programmed  beats  are  also  used  at  times  before  going  into  a  heavier  musical  direction  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  and  tremolo  picking  can  be  heard  which  also  gives  the  songs  more  of  a  raw  feeling. 

  Vocals  are  mostly  depressive  black  metal  screams  and  cries  while  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  along  with  all  of  the  musical  instruments  having  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  as  well  as  the  riffs  also  bringing  in  a  decent  amount  of  melody  and  a  couple  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  and  you  can  also  hear  a  great  amount  of  90's  influences  in  the  riffing  and  as  the  album  progresses  synths  also  return  in  certain sections  of  the  recording

  On  this  recording  Aisuragua  moves  away  from  the  dark  ambient  style  of  his previous  recording  and  returns  to  his  black  metal  roots  by  creating  an  album  that  is  very  depressive  but  on  the  more  raw  side  as  opposed  to  the  atmospheric  side  that  most  modern  bands  go  for,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  depression,  misanthropy,  existentialism,  landscape  and  cosmos  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Aisuragua  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  raw  and  depressive  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "The  Day  Of  Blasphemy"  and  "My  Pilgrimage  Is  Over".  8  out  of  10.
