Morbosidad Interview

mercredi 28 février 2018 à 20:31
1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?
**Playing shows,drinking and of course trying to write new stuff for a split with Ungod.


2.You have a new album coming out in March, 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?
**We always tried to keep our same sound in every recording, thats what make us different from any other band. Im really satisfied with the production, is really well produced compared to our previous recordings.


3.I have read that at the end of 2018 the band is going to split, can you tell us a little bit more about this decision?
**Yes, I think its time to put it to rest. Its been 25 years already, I dont have time for shows anymore plus the scene sucks nowadays, too many wanna be's, posers and pretentious people that makes me sick, everytime I played or go to shows. I cant deal with that shit, Im gonna miss it alot though (Morbosidad) is everything to me but I have differents plans, a project in mind. I owed everything to Morbosidad, got to go places I never though I wi and met so many bands and people, I had a really good run.


4.You have been playing a 'war metal' style since the early 90's back when only a handful of bands where playing this style, do you feel you might have had a huge influence on a lot of the newer bands that have been playing this genre over the years?
**I heard from some bands once in a while, they tell me how much Morbosidad influenced them on their music, lyrics etc. I takes me by surprised to heard that but it feel good to hear it, makes you proud.


5.All of your lyrics have been written in Spanish, why did you pick this language?
**Cause its my native language plus I think it gives our music a more primitive, evil and blasphemous sound.


6.Also a lot of your lyrics are very satanic, occult and blasphemous, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in the dark arts?
**I've been into the dark side all my life since I remember. its our only path that helps us to get through in this pathetic life we live in.

7.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Morbosidad'?
**A spit on god's face, nothing but blasphemous Morboso Metal.


8.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
**I really enjoyed playing Black Flames of Blasphemy in Finland. The sound was so amazing, the bands on the bill plus having Sodomatic Slaughter playing Salomon' Gate with Morbosos was unique, something I will never forget. Our performances are always full of hate, chaos and insanity. I fuckin dig crowds when they get rawdy and a fucked up, is always a plus fpr us to see that.


9.What are some of the final touring or show plans for 2018?
**We are playing El Salvador and Guatemala once again this March. Then in April we will desecrate Tennessee for the first time. May we have a local show in San Antonio, Texas. June we will spill some blood at Destrtoying Texas Metal Fest. July, we are going back to play Gospel of the Serpent Fest. Then in October Peru and Colombia or Chile. Thats what we have so far.

10.Originally the band was based in Oakland, California but now re-located to Houston, Texas, can you tell us a little bit more about this move?
**I live in San Antonio, Texas. The rest of my members live in Houston. I dont know what heppened, still trying to figure it out why? Ohh well, its been 6 years already, so lets see what happens within thw next years.


11.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your newer material by fans of war, black, and death metal?
**Its been great so far, Im always thankful for the fan base we have, they are loyal and die hards. A big hails and horns up to them for their support.


12.Are the band members going to focus more on their other musical projects after 2018?
**I think so, Joe Necro and Matt Mayhem play in Blaspherian. Ded Ted on Hell Razor, so Im sure they will be busy with their priority bands. Or who.knows, may be some other project, who.knows, depends all on them now.


13.Are there any newer influences that you have brought onto the new recording that you where not able to do on previous releases?
**No sir, no need to. Influences are always the same ones: Sarcofago,Beherit,Blasphemy and Archgoat.


14.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
**Thanks for the interview, big thanks for the Morboso Maniacs who supported us all these years, their endless support means alot to me. Support the real UG.I

Vihamieli Interview

mercredi 28 février 2018 à 20:27
1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
1. We are very young outfit but we have strong, history-related vision.

2.So far you have released a demo and a full length, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on both of the recordings and also how do they differ from each other?
2. Demo consists of separated stand-alone songs, whereas the full-length is a bigger entirety and songs a lot more melodic and progressive.

3.Your lyrics cover Satanism and some anti Muslim and Christian topics, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in Satanism and your hatred for white light religions?
3. The hatred you are pointing there isn't only related to Satanism. Some bands write their lyrics based only on the Satanism doctrines, while we write what makes sense individually.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Vihamieli'?

4. It's a very abstract and multi-dimensional phenom. For us it mainly means freedom and individuality to express ourselves and channel energies, back and forth.

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

5. In an event year back, there was dense atmosphere, both physically and mentally, a lot of energies were channeled. We have mystical approach, we hide our identities. Music creates hypnotic atmosphere where we deliver powerful music that has endless amounts of nuances to absorb.

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

6. Only time can tell where our path will lead.


7.Currently you are unsigned,a re you looking for a label or have received any interest?
7. Our full-length was released as CD by Hidden Marly Production and as cassette by Corde Raide Productions. Currently we are not actively seeking for labels, we are focusing in the music. We are constantly receiving offers from labels worldwide.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?
8. Creations have been described to be melodic, interesting and influenced by 90's.

9.When can we expect new material and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
9. The channeling is currently in process and will be revealed once it is the time for it. We will be breaking musical boundaries also in future, so only time will tell.

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. We are not strictly limited to only one style of music and as a matter of fact bands like Depeche Mode and The Cure are influencing our current material. We listen this and that, whatever is interesting, regardless of the genre.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?
11. Practicing dark arts.


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

mercredi 28 février 2018 à 06:31

  Wormlight  are  a  band  from  Sweden  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  plays  a  very  raw  and  melodic  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2018  album  :Wrath  Of  The  Wilds'  which  will  be  released  in  April  by  Black  Lion  Records.

  Heavy  yet  melodic  riffing  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  black  metal  screams  and  death  metal  growls  a  few  seconds  later  while  the  faster  sections  of t he  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  which  also  gives  the  music  more  of  a  raw  feeling.

  Throughout  the  recording  you  can  also  hear  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  while  the  solos  and  leads  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  fashion  along  with  all  of  the  musical  instruments  having  a  very  powerful  sound  to t hem  and  there  are  also  a  few  tracks  that  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  as  well  as  the  music  being  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  mid  90's  Swedish  style  and  on  one  of  the  tracks  acoustic  guitars,  keyboards  and  spoken  word  parts  are  also  introduced  on  the  recording  briefly  and  when  melodic  chants  are  utilized  on  a  later  track  they  give  the  music  more  of  a  ritualistic  feeling.

  Wormlight  creates  another  recording  that  remains  true  to  the  raw  and  melodic  black  metal  style  from  their  previous  release,  the  production  sounds  very  professional while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness  and occultism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  album  from  Wormlight  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  raw  and  melodic  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  Reptillian  King"  "On  Tattered  Wings"  and  "Feast  Pf  The  Mountain  Kin".  8  out  of  10.

  Ritualistic  synths  start  off  the  album  before  going  into  a  very  fast  and  raw  musical  direction  which  also  uses  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  brutal  blast  beats  while  the  vocals  are  mostly  grim  yet  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  along  with  the  riffs  also b ringing  in  a  small  amount  of  dark  sounding  melodies.

  A  great  amount  of  90's  second  wave  influences  can  be  heard  in  the  bands  musical  style  while  some  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  along  with  some  acoustic  guitars  also  being  used  briefly  and  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  as  well  as  all  of  the  musical  instruments  having  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  when  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  fashion  and  as  the  album  progresses  spoken  word  parts  can  also  be  heard  briefly.   

  On  this  recording  Blutvial plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  is  very  raw,  aggressive  and  misanthropic  sounding,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness,  nihilism,  and  existentialism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Blutvial  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  raw  and  misanthropic  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Beneath  The  Moon"  "Vaul  Of  Unrest"  "Doomed  To  Eternal  Night"  and  "Where  Graves  Spring  Open".  8  out  of  10.

mercredi 28 février 2018 à 03:28

  Grave  Upheaval  are  a  band  from  Australia  that  plays  a  bestial  and  cavernous  mixture  of  black,  death  and  doom  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  untitled  2018  album  which will  be  released  in  April  by  Nuclear  War  Now!  Productions.

  Dark  soundscapes  start  off  the  album  along  with  a  very  ritualistic atmosphere  and  when  the  grim  black  metal  screams  kick  in  the  music  gets  more  heavier  and  also  brings  in  a  more  funeral  doom  metal  style  as  well  as  a  great  amount  of  dark  sounding  melodies  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.

  A  great  amount  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  along  with  a  great  amount  of  bestial  growls  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  and  war  metal  elements  can  also  be  heard  along  with  some  ritualistic  sounding  synths  also  being  used  at  times and  as  the  album  progresses  the  vocals  start  adding  in  melodic  occult  chants  as  well  as  some  evil  sounding  whispers.

  Grave  Upheaval  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  cavernous  and  bestial  black  metal  and  mixes  it  with  funeral  doom  and  death  metal  to  create  something  very  original,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness,  death  and  occultism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Grave  Upheaval  are  a  very  great  sounding  bestial  and  cavernous  mixture  of  black,  death  and  funeral  doom  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "II-I"  "II-IV"  and  "II-VIII".  8/5  out  of  10.
