1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?
We are a duo (Cuervo, Fornost) from Nicaragua which plays a mixture between Black Metal and some ambient details.
2.In July you had released an album, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical style that you went for on the recording?
We wanted to make a dark, raw and minimalist essence.
3.Both of the other members are also in other bands, what is it that you bring into the music of 'Reflection Of Misery', that you are not able to do with your other groups?
The mixture of noises on guitar riffs, dynamics on drums and dissonance. Other Black Metal bands in here don’t agree with that kind of style, long and dark songs, so we are practically the first band playing this style in this country.
4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band has explored so far with the music?
The mental and moral decadence of mankind and insignificance of life.
5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Reflection of Misery'?
Humankind is afraid of seeing themselves in a mirror, because they cannot deal with the reflection of being caged in their own miseries.
6.Can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork that is presented on the new album cover?
It is an abstract interpretation of our lyrics, decadence and insignificance of existence.
7.Currently there are only 2 members in the band, are you open to expanding the line up or do you prefer to remain a duo?
We rather prefer to remain as a duo.
8.The album was released on 'Exnihilo Records', can you tell us a little bit more about this label?
Cuervo owns Exnihilo Records (ENR), it’s a small label and mailorder focused on Black Metal and related genres, based in Managua, Nicaragua, aimed to allow releases to be available.
9.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of black metal?
There’s a positive feedback on bandcamp.
10.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?
We can talk just about Reflection of Misery and Veins (Cuervo’s OMB) which is about to release the second full length (By ENR).
11.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
Reflection of Misery is a studio band, so, looking foward, we have to do at least one work more.
12.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?
Actually nowadays bands. Bands from the last decade. We are not influenced by first, second nor even a “Third” wave of Black Metal, against any common belief.
13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Thanks for the support.
