Hell's Coronation Interview

dimanche 4 mars 2018 à 01:16
1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
1.Hell`s Coronation was called in its abomination in 2016 to prafane all sanctities of monotheistic religions, especially christianity, we deal with it on a daily basics. It`s cooperation of two squalid souls – Zepar (guitars, vocals, keys) ans Coffincrusher (bass, drums). So far we spit out two unholy acts – EP „Antichristian Devotion” and EP „Unholy Blades Of The Devil”. Next rituals take shape, to present their corruption in a timely manner and make havoc.


2.So far you have released 2 ep's, 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.Everything what was released and what will be released with Hell`s Coronation logo will be maintained in the spirit of the 90`s. We consciously cultivate those values, considering this period in extreme metal as the best. All elements of our releases are characterized by this, from graphics to music. This is not plastic metal, we don`t need weeks in studio for cleaning the sound. In studio we are absolute minimum, we end our work when we have selective dirt and muck. He who is looking for progressive in music and modern solution, should not come close to our carcass. This project is conservative and archaic with full premeditation. On both EP`s we used similar patents, to express the broken emotions in the right way for us, rottenness in the soul. The difference between these two materials is larger quantity of key spots on second EP.


3.You refer to your music as 'necro ritual black doom metal', can you tell us a little bit more about this term?
3. Our music are sounds entwined with symbolics and a corpse aura,
paying homage to the night and eternal darkness. It`s hellish magma, slowly and intricately flood her victims, leaves fragments of life to rot, let the mold finish it and give back the stench. After this the only thing that remain is dead silence. That`s Hell`s Coronation – nekroritual, black doom metal tormentor.

4.A lot of your lyrics cover Satanism and Luciferian themes, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in the dark arts?
4.I use many systems, trends and beliefs, they allow me to extend my knowledge. Writing lyrics, i transfer to paper my thoughts and reflections, they undergo transformations becoming an idea. They are signposts for the next course, they help me to place my ego and feel hate to the world. I`m watching surroundings, i`m drawing conclusions. I pass them through the filter of experience gained, and i fish out everything what is important for me and helpful in pursuit of full enlightenment. The point is to understand many powers of the universe through considerations, add wings to primal instincts, and man does not succumb to unnecessary influences. I`m sure i have my balance between my mind and soul. I`m not into any organizations, just individual work on my own. This gives me freedom.


5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Hell's  Coronation'?
5. Hell`s Coronation is voice of our dark demons, we give them outlet through our music. Dark side of human nature is intriguing, so also inspirational. We crown the hell, because we`re in opposition to Christianity and to the church teachings. But our hell got no biblical dimension . Hell is our daily and reality, we are hell in our contempt for human race. We walk our own path, we crown aversion and abomination, to worthless existence. It`s the direct meaning of this name.


6.Currently there are only 2 members in the band, are you open to expanding the line up or do you chose to remain a duo?
6.Given our acquired experience from previous bands, in which we was contagious, we don`t want to engage anybody in our crusade. Such an assumption was from the first moment, in which i decided to speak under the Hell`s Coronation banner. Coffincrusher agrees with my statement, so this arrangement is optimal, it allows to celebrate magic of rehearsals and create tracks and this is enough in our case. We feel satisfied in artistic way in this configuration, we don`t want to play concerts with this project, so we dont need anybody from outside.

7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black and doom metal?
7.We hear the voices of approval, through the reviews from all over the world. Critical comments are also occasional, so propaganda is making through the label, harvests some harvest. It`s hard to say, how big is this interest. We do not conduct market research in this area, because we don`t give a shit. We realize, with our message, which let`s not kid ourselves gets into an airtight niche, we dont reach global recognition. What we do is very personal. We focus only on creation of new acts, which are form of cleansing of any vermin in the soul. Who is supposed to hit us, he will hit us, but for sure not everybody will stay with us for long, if he`s not devoted warrior of underground with his extreme and filthy form.

8.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part of?
8.If we talk about me, after my departure from Deadthorn, Hell`s Coronation is my priority and here i`m engaging all my creative power. My gig hunger i quench in Nekkrofukk. These few concerts in one year are enough for me and i don`t feel the need for permanent contact with the audience. Coffincrusher also leaves Deadthorn, after he found out about my resignation. He got his mother band Damage Case, with which this year will be recording the third album. Like me, he also supports concerts of Nekkrofukk.


9.When can we expect a full length album and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
9.After release „Unholy Blades Of The Devil” the next ritual will be split with Cadaveric Possession, we work on it already, we want to record our part and start studio session at the end of march. The premiere is planned at autumn 2018. After this split, we plan focus on full length album. It`s gonna be a continuation of what we actually do, without useless frills, only sultry, obscure metal, fueled with swampy stench.


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.Spectrum of our inspirations is very wide, but clear for each , who experience magic of metal before 2 or 3 decades. In our music you can hear echoes of norwegian scene, finland, swiss, or even greek. Our idea is to stoking the black flame of primordial metal, which was burn with blasphemy in the soul thanks such bands as Bathory, Hellhammer, Mayhem, Satyricon, Samael, Barathrum and Rotting Christ. We can now name many other bands, which have left their mark in our music, but these bands names i called, are ideal translating our invention in relation to the original. We make it intuitively, maybe because of our age, but also our music activity in that period. In a sense, history is circling, and for me this, what we do now in Hell`s Coronation, is continuation of these, what i`ve done in Mastiphal. Now i`m overheard in Czort – Czarna ewangelia, Kawir – Exilasmos, Moenen Of Xezbeth – Dawn Of Morbid Sorcery, Huoripukki – Nekala Dungeons, Riivaus – Lyoden Taudein Ja Kirouksin, Glorification – Against All Adversity, Morbid Perversion – Rites Of Lust And Blasphemy, Malokarpatan – Nordkarpatenland, Hades Archer – Temple Of The Impure, Abominablood – Abomination Continues and Cult Ov Black – The Ancient Lurse. Fuck enough hahaha! I could long, beceause i have a lot of things i have to listen to.

11.What are some of you non musical interests?
11.Considering the daily obligations, there`s not much time left for broadening interests other than metal, with all his aspects. It`s 24h passion, not only for weekend. Important is understanding your relatives, because they need different impulse than me. Many sacrifices are needed to reconcile in this.  After leaving the homestead , if there is time to watch a movie, match or read an interesting book, this is already a feat.


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

Leave what barbaric for real men, parade like poofs in shopping centers, drinking some fucking mokate, or other macchiato, eat shit vege tofu, there you fit. Rot, you gagged whores! Arrrrrgh...allright....thanx for interview, i go to absorb mystical energy from the forest. Amen...

Above Aurora/Path To Ruin/Pagan Records/2018 EP Review

dimanche 4 mars 2018 à 00:59

  Above  Aurora  are  a  band  from  Poland  that  has  had  an  album  reviewed  before  in  this  zine  and  plays  an  atmospheric  mixture  of  black  and  doom  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2018  ep  "Path  To  Ruin"  which  will  be  released  in  April  by  Pagan  Records.

  A  very  dark  sound  starts  off  the  ep  along  with  all  of  the  musical  instruments  sounding  very  powerful  while  the  music  is very  heavily  influenced  by  doom  metal  in  the  slower  sections  of  the  songs  as  well  as  the  riffs  also  bringing  in  a  great  amount  of  dark  sounding  melodies  and  spoken  word  parts  are  used  briefly.

  When  the  music  speeds  up  a  small  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  can  be  heard  which  also  gives  the  songs  a  more  raw  feeling  while  the  vocals  are  mostly  deep  black  metal  screams  along  with  the  first  track  being  all  instrumental  and  most  of  the  music  sticks  to  either  a  slow  or  mid  tempo  direction,  spoken  word  parts  and  horned  instruments  are  also  used  briefly.

  Above  Aurora  creates  another  recording  that  remains  true  to  their  atmospheric  mixture  of  black  and  doom  metal,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Above  Aurora  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  atmospheric  black  and  doom  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Abyssal  Hades".  8  out  of  10.

Ende/Goetie funeste/Obscure Abhorrence Promotions/2018 CD Review

vendredi 2 mars 2018 à 23:55

  Ende  are  a  band  from  France  that  has  had  an  album  reviewed  before in  this  zine  and  plays  an  occult  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2018  album  "Goetie  funeste"  which  will  be  released  on  March  10th  by  Obscure  Abhorrence  Promotions".

  Nature  orientated  soundscapes  start  off  the  album  before  going  into  more  of  a  heavier  and  melodic  direction  while  grim  whispers  are  also  used  briefly  before  evolving  into  black  metal screams  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  and  tremolo  picking  can  be  heard.

  At  times  the  riffing  gets  very  raw  along  with  the  music  also  bringing  in  a  mixture  of  both  modern  and  old  school  influences  while  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.

 When  guitar  solos and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  fashion  while  stringed  instruments, acoustic  guitars  and  melodic  vocals  can  also  be  heard  briefly  as  the  album  progresses  along  with  a  couple  of  the  tracks  being  long  and  epic  in  length  as well  as  one  song  being  an  instrumental.

  Ende  creates  another  recording  that  remains  true  to  their  raw  style  of  occult  black  metal,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  Goetia,  Occultism,  Sorcery  and  Individualism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Ende  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  occult  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Crawling  In  Winter"  "Seventh  Gate  of  A  Seventh  Sin"  and  "In  Bones".  8  out  of  10.

Knelt Rote/Alterity/Nuclear War Now! Productions/2018 CD Review

vendredi 2 mars 2018 à 20:06
  Knelt  Rote  are  a  band  from  Portland,  Oregon  that  plays  a  mixture  of  war, black,  death  metal  and  grindcore  with  some  touches  of  harsh  noise  and  hardcore  punk  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2018  album  "Alterity"  which  was  released  by  Nuclear  War  Now!  Productions  and the  vinyl  version will  be  released  in  May.

  Power  electronics  and  harsh  noises  start  off  the  album  along  with  some grindcore  style  screams  before  going  into  a  very  fast  and  brutal  blackened  death  metal  direction  which  also  uses  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  along  with  the  vocals  being  bestial  growls and  the  music  also  mixes  in  the  rawness  of  war  metal.

  Elements  of  grindcore  and  hardcore  punk  can  also  be  heard  at  times  while  black  metal  screams  are  also  added  into  some  parts  of  the  songs  along  with  the  riffs  also  using  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  some  of  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  as  the  album  progresses  a  small  amount  of  dark  sounding  melodies  can  be  heard  in  some  of  the  guitar  riffing.

  Knelt  Rote  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  war,  black,  death  metal  and  grindcore  and  mixes  it  with  some  elements  of  harsh  noise  to  create  something  very  original,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  social  dissolution,  identity,  mental  illness,  obsession  and  suicide  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Knelt  Rote  are  a  very  great  sounding  raw  and  bestial  mixture  of  war,  black,  death  metal  and  grindcore  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Lachesis"  "Genetic  Memory"  and   "Black  Triptych".  8/2  out  of  10.

Ancst/Depravation/Yehonala Tapes/2018 Split EP Review

vendredi 2 mars 2018 à 07:39

  This  is  a  review  of  a  split  ep  between  Germany's  Ancst  and  Depravation  which  was  released  by  Yehonala  Tapes  and  we  will  start  off  the  review  with  Ancst  returning  with  their  melodic  mixture  of  black  metal  and  crust.

  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  blast  beats  and  raw  tremolo  picking  while  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  while  the  vocals  are  mostly  angry  hardcore  and  crust  style  screams  along  with  the  songs  also  bringing  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  spoken  word  parts  are  added  onto  the  second  track  as  well as  a  small  amount  of  melodic  guitar  leads,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  social  criticism  and  anti  capitalism  themes. 

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Ancst  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  band,  you  should  enjoy  their  side  of  the  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "The  Old  Darkness".

  Next  up  is  Depravation  another  band  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  on  this  recording  moves  way  from  the  crust  and  hardcore  elements  and  focuses  more  on  a  raw  and  melodic  style  of  black  metal  with  some death  metal  touches

  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  a  very  fast  and  raw  sound  which  also  uses  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  along  with  some  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  a  few  seconds  later  while  the  riffs  also  bring  in  a  great  amount  of  melody  as  well  as  the  songs  also  bringing  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  you  can  also  hear  a  touch  of  death  metal  at  times,  the  production  sounds  very  raw  and  heavy  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness  and  occultism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Depravation  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of t he  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Moloch".

  In  conclusion  I  feel  this  is  a  very  great  sounding  split  and  i  would  recommend  it  to  all  fans  of  black  metal  and  crust.  8  out  of  10.
