Aornos Interview

mardi 22 décembre 2015 à 20:08
1. Can you give us an update on what is going on with the musical project these days?
The brand new EP, Alea Iacta Est just came out recently, by HOD presents. So far it is only available in a digital format, but shortly it will be on the market as CD, though in a limited number only and of course it will be possible to order it. Besides two new songs (Alea Iacta Est, From The Nameless’ Pit) there are five covers (CARCHAROTH - Eredendő Bűn?, MORBID ANGEL - Eyes to see, Ears to hear, BONANZA BANZAI - A Halál dalol, SEAR BLISS - Far above the Trees, LAND OF CHARON - Az Első, az Utolsó, és az Egyetlen). Soon an AORNOS - DE PROFUNDIS (a Hungarian black metal formation) cassette split material will be out by Fekete Terror Productions. An own track (Into The Night), a new version of a song from the LP Orior (Gelum), and an ARCTURUS cover (To thou dwellest in the Night) are all on the tape. Subsequently, the works for the second LP are ongoing. Seven tracks are done. Only the song tracks need to be recorded for three of them, and then we can consider the musical aspect of it to be fairly complete. I think no more than one new song is possible at this point. Of course, the seven pieces contain the new songs out on the EP and the split (Alea Iacta Est, From The Nameless’ Pit, Into The Night). A while ago a couple of bands suggested that we make joined split materials, but I don’t want to scatter the songs of the 2nd LP bit by bit. But of course I am quite open to having further split material, and if such new tracks are born, I will be happy to have such possibilities.

2. So far this year you have released both a full length and an ep. How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on both of the recordings and also how do they differ from each other?
I’ve been polishing, forming the tracks of the introductory Orior LP for a very long time. They include some of my early ideas, when I had trouble even with playing the instrument, but it also contains themes from last year. The point is that the whole music went through a filtering even in its smallest details, and I only kept those element which really seemed to be worthwhile. The LP took a very long time to complete, and it was mainly due to technical reason; the recording was done in a home studio, not in a professional one, with the help of a sound engineer and a producer. The entire recording has been repeated many times. It was totally up to me to find out and work out everything, and in the case of such complex music this can give you really stressful moments... But the lessons learned at the Orior debut album came handy when creating the new tracks; I was able to work much more swiftly now, in the entire procedure. The line of sight for my own songs, the EP bears the same characteristics as Orior: many layered, fairly brutal, but still atmospheric, spiritual, cosmic black metal, not taking any trips into the realm of other, different styles. No mainstream post-hybrid-dissonant elements, only black metal. The opening Alea Iacta Est is a brand new song, an apocalyptic disaster, with misanthropic references in the Hungarian lyrics. Maybe it’s worth noting that in this song there is a part that takes on the crazy 300 BPM pace. This is where I fully gave up looking for suitable drummers. It would have been completely hopeless for this rhythm, but this way I took maximum advantage of the fact that I didn’t have to compromise...The second own song is From The Nameless’ Pit, which is the slowest AORNOS track so far (except for the short song Portentum from the 1st LP); even at the fastest part, it is only speeds up to a nodding mid-pace. The cosmic mythology of Lovecraft, the master of horror influenced the lyrics, but it also has other meanings...I have wanted to have a very sinister slow flow for a long time, for instance as a contrast to the tempest of the previous Alea Iacta Est. It has a curiosity; the role of the guitar solo is filled by a bass harmony, and in the faster parts a church organ is hear, in a discreet way. When talking about the covers, it was not my intention to bring tracks from strictly black or death metal areas. I wanted to choose songs that are important for me for some reason, and on which I can work well. This is how the songs on the EP were originally chosen; a synthesizer pops song (BONANZA BANZAI) and a cult-dark track (LAND OF CHARON). But of course it was an important aspect that the dark tone was a characteristic of the originals...

3. You consider your music 'noetic black metal’. Can you tell us a little bit more about this term?
In AORNOS, something deep, substantive, the dark and dramatic reflection of Existence is portrayed, but it doesn’t end in whining, decadent, suicidal introversion or hate-anger stewing in one’s own juices. This rather represents a contemplative, prominent viewpoint that openly sacrifices for wanting the power… It’s a journey deep into the vortex, but in a way where we dominate the Chaos and not the Chaos is the one, who dominates... at least that’s the aim. I think the lyrics help to understand what it is all about.

4. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with your music?
What are the lyrics about? Well… about the Existence itself. From a dark aspect, of course. Beyond the mainstream, the clichés, the fake-evil, the fake-„true” black metal, infantile Satanism, the surface.

5. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Aornos'?
Formerly (around in: 1998), I wanted to use the Avernus name, but then I heard that there is a band by this name. In those years, without the Internet, these things were harder to find out. Then I wanted the Atritas and later the Arbitrium, but by using the Internet I saw that bands with these names already exist. Finally I chose the name AORNOS, which is the Greek equivalent of the Latin Avernus. Literally it means: “birdless”. Aornos is a lake which exhales sulphurous fumes, therefore the birds couldn’t fly over it; the drifting hell-fumes killed them. By the way, that is a real place, it exists; metaphorically it is the entrance to the Underworld.

6. On the albums you record everything by yourself but in a different interview you have also mentioned being open to work with other musicians. Are you still open to the idea? I didn’t find the right people yet. This kind of music also makes it harder. I’m done with the compromises. Yes, it’s pretty tough to get this together by myself, but it can be enjoyable. I would still be glad if the right people appeared, but generally it is typical that everyone only thinks of their own “shit” (same as me), and it is especially true to those who otherwise would be suitable.

7. On the full length you had done an Emperor cover. What was the decision behind doing your own version of one of their songs? It was because of EMPEROR that black metal became my favorite style, back whenever. It was mostly due to the album Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk. When listening to that LP, I felt that completeness that I’ve never felt before (or since) when listening to any other dark music... It is simply prevalent. For me, EMPEROR is just as credible in black metal as MORBID ANGEL in death metal. All else can come only after them...so this cover is nothing else but a bow in front of Their Majesty.



8. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?
In the greater part of 2015, there was no publishing support behind Orior, so I really had to work a lot on promoting the material, reaching the potential interested parties, and of course this was done only as my time allowed. But in September, the Black Plague Records and the Symbol Of Domination jointly threw the material on the market. Hopefully it will reach more places this way. Overall, the feedback on international level is not bad at all, there are actually a few very praising ones, so the reactions can be said to be fairly good. But of course interest could always be higher, and I would be glad if the rising tendency, typical so far, would continue.

9. Are you currently involved in any other bands or musical projects these days? I play guitar in FROST, one of Hungary’s oldest black metal formations. And just recently I stood in for the guitarist live in the band PARAGON ZERO, and it might happen again. But I mainly focus on AORNOS.

10. Where do you see yourself heading as a musician? Obviously, AORNOS won’t attract as much attention as it might have done 10 to 17 years ago, but in those days it would not have been possible to make the material in this form. There is a lot of music, easy to get lost in the stream, and people don’t listen to music like they used to. They are in a rush and impatient. They listen to music they don’t even know only in passing, and then they move on. But this music is exactly the kind that might be very complex at first (at least if you listen to the entire album at once). It reveals its secret values with time. There are a lot of musical delights hidden, which might only be heard when listening with earphones. In addition - as I said - AORNOS is not that kind of BM that is easy to identify, for example: orthodox, "true", raw, depressive, post, hybrid, folk, symphonic, dissonant or Satanist, etc. black metal ... My biggest dream, of course, is that the AORNOS will gain a certain level of respect around the world in the underground. And we could have concerts in conditions that are not so degrading with the right members. But of course this is largely a financial issue. If you are not a millionaire, forget the truly professional concerts. I mean in this kind of BM that AORNOS represents. I was really shocked when the EMPEROR's first official live material (Emperial Live Ceremony) came out. I was amazed how they could perform the hymns of the album so perfectly, but it had to be the EMPEROR for this…

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? Nowadays there is no music that would affect me so profoundly than there was when the first themes of Orior were born. Sometimes I am really fed up with all the new and newer music out there, especially that I rarely feel that genius that was present in the golden era of the 90s in many elite formations. It still happens sometimes that I feel fired up when reading a review, and I buy the music described in it, whether it is new or unknown to me, but my initial flare up usually subsides in 70 to 80 % of the cases. I have heard too many things already, an as a musician, I expect much more from music than a layman. So I usually listen to a couple of dozens of my evergreen favorite albums, these keep me inspired. It doesn’t mean that there are no good or outstanding BM records in the last 10 to 11 years, which are up to par from all aspects. Such are: INQUISITION - Obscure Verses for the Multiverse, BEHEMOTH - The Satanist, SONIC REIGN - Monument in Black, DARK FORTRESS - Stab Wounds, Séance, Eidolon, CODE - Nouveau Gloaming, STELLAR MASTER ELITE I-III, KEEP OF KALESSIN - Reclaim, Armada, MAYHEM - Chimera, Ordo Ad Chao, WATAIN - Sworn to the Dark, Lawless Darkness, The Wild Hunt, SKALDIC CURSE - World Suicide Machine, and maybe: NACHTMYSTIUM - Assassins, MGLA - With Hearts Toward None, Exercises Futility, MYSPYRMING - Söngvar elds, THY DARKENED SHADE - Liber Lvcifer, AVICHI – Catharsis Absolute…

12. Does occultism play any role in your music?
If we take occultism in its current shallow meaning, AOROS has nothing to do with it. There are no summoning, citing names of demons from the Necronomicon, from the Bible of the Satan, or from any “occult” grimoire or magic book. What is more, most expressions of modern esoterics, new age occult makes me sick. In our current world, even the deep and serious things are handled shabbily, as if the man of present had not grown up to them. Showing off expertise, yakking about them, this is the typical. Clearly, many would like to feel unique, insider...but no, I am not connected to any branches of the occult. But if we take occult in its original form, my music very much contain it. Since I also think that everything is interconnected and affects everything else. I believe that there is a sphere behind the physical world, and that the five senses are not enough to really know reality. There is an area where the clever snake of the mind and logic has to bite into its own tail, and I am attempting to explore it by my music...

13. Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any additional words or thoughts? As I mentioned, the 2nd LP is under construction, and by my guess, it will shortly see the moonlight...I hope that those who liked Orior will also like this new material that so far has not title yet. Of course, no one has to be afraid of a radical style change. Thank you for your attention and for the interview. All the bests.

Solus Interview

mardi 22 décembre 2015 à 20:02
1.Can you give us an update on what is going on with the musical project these days?

Hails! First of all, thanks for your interest in my musical activity. Well, I’m finishing the last release of Solus, which would be an EP and for sure promoting the first and the last full-length album.

2.In April you had 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 think during the last few years my music evolved continuously into that atmospheric/ambiental form. My lyrics became more deeper and, the sound is better and the concept behind this act had more complexity too.

I used to have more primitive ideas during the first years –both in lyrics and music too-
more raw sound, less original composing etc…

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explored with the newer music?

Heathenism, old shamanic traditions and rituals. To be concrete, I wrote about the spiritual journey between feverdreams and cold dimensions. From the depths of darkness to the golden flames of light.

4.According to the Metal Archives page you changed the project's name from 'Solus' to 'Hamvak', what was the decision behind the name change?

It was a hard decision, but my new songs are simply can not be described as Solus songs.
I dropped some extra elements into my visions (dissonance, more variations …) and it has become Hamvak. Anyway, Hamvak means ashes in Hungarian.

5.With this project you record everything by yourself, do you feel you are able to express yourself a lot more with this musical project?

Sure. I have to do everything by myself and it satisfies me because I hate to take compromises, or change anything which sounds good to me. I tried to play in bands with full line-up, but mostly it sucks to me (except Malediction, they are GREAT guys).
I hate to wait for other band members to learn the fucking new songs, to make some new riffs, to checking out the lyrics, I don’t really like to play too many gigs..etc It makes me sick and tired.

6.Originally the project was from Hungary but know located in Germany, what was the decision behind the move?

I moved because of financial reasons. I’ve got a new job with better salary.

7.A year ago you where a part of a split with 'Moonkult', what are your thoughts on the other band that had participated on the recording?

I just discovered their music somewhere and it amazed me. I like that kind of storming Black Metal, and I decided the drop an email to them. They agreed with the cooperation and we recorded our songs.
The cover art was made by a very talented Russian guy (formerly known as Askold art, now Godlike Icons) who plays in a band called Pogost.

8.Can you tell us a little bit more about 'Dark East Productions'?

It’s a label from Russia. They make mostly co-releases with other labels. They released Witcher and Vrag albums too (highly recommended to check out!!) and I decided to ask them about my stuff. Originally the Solus album planned to be released by another label, but in the middle of the manufacturing  process they denied to reply me for some  reason, and later on I changed to Dark East Prod. Now I see that was a good decision.

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

I get nice reviews from some zines so I think the feedback to my music is mostly positive.

10.Are you also involved with any other bands or musical projects these days?

Yes, for sure! I have a band with Patrik (Evil Conqueror, Sign of Death, ex-Sinful Eternity) called Earth Plague. We make very simple, primitive, Punk influenced Black/Death/Thrash music in the spirit of the 80’s. We are working on our second full-length album.

We made another band too called Ghoultemple which is an Earth Plague side-project.
It’s a very primitive and barbaric Death Metal.


11.Where do you see yourself heading into as a musician in the future?

I don’t really know. My aim is to make my visions attainable in the right form.

12.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?

I listen to a very wide variety of music from simple blues/rock/hard rock to the Black/Death Thrash underground, and I like some types of electronic music too.
Nowadays I mostly listen to Bölzer, Sinmara and Portal. They are the best bands from the scene.

13.How would you describe your views on heathen Spiritualism?

Briefly to me and my culture, which is highly involved with Shamanism (Táltos to be precise), it can be represented  with transcendental experience and philosophycal acknowledgement. You can get answers for your questions during some type of journey and you can see something which is hidden in this modern world.

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

Thank you very much for this interview and for the attention! We will meet soon under the banner of Hamvak!

Third Storm Interview

mardi 22 décembre 2015 à 06:18
1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and release of the new ep?
We are at the moment writing new songs for the first full-length album which hopefully will be recorded next year. All the members have  their other bands also so things are not moving that fast but that's a good thing, we don't want to rush things.

2.In September you had released a new ep 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?
The musical direction is focused on both black metal and doom metal with a lot of dark and twisted atmosphere, two 13 minutes long epic songs. The newer songs we're working on now are shorter and have lots of fast parts, we will keep the doom elements also of but not that much as on the EP. The music of Third Storm in the 80s was more chaotic noisy black/thrash with lots of blast beats and shit, not so much doom as now. We were very young back then and not so good musicians so to speak.

3.The band was broken up for almost 30 years, what was the cause of the split and also the decision to reform after all of these years?

We just got tired of the band in 1988 and went separate ways, we were 16-17 years old and two guys moved to other cities to study or something like that and me myself didn't want to be in a band for a while 'til I formed Sarcasm two years after. The timing now was right I guess, there's alot of variety in the metal scene today compared to the 90's. It wouldn't have been wise to ressurect this band back then I think.

4.From what I have read so far that in the 80's you where considered one of the most extreme bands at the time, do you fell you have been a huge influence on a lot of the bands that popped up in the early 90's from your home country?

No I don't think so, since we didn't spread our music that much, perhaps maybe in our home town Uppsala where we did some gigs and spread our name, but I don't think it reached more far than that. The scene in Stockholm began when we split up and I have no idea if those guys knew of Third Storm or not.


5.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Our first full length that we are working on right now will be a concept album and part one of a trilogy. That album will be about the creation and the laws of the universe, and of course the forces behind everything. I can't go into much more details without spoiling, which I won't. I can say that the whole story will be about genesis, the storms and a new order.

6.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Third Storm'?
The name originally referred to world war three, it still is but this time it's much bigger than that, this time the whole universe is at stake. The band name will be explained in details on the third album (last part of the trilogy)

7.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
Well, we haven't played live since 1988, but back then it was chaotic, crazy, bad sound, not that well played etc. But fun at the same time.

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

We will do some shows in the future but we don't know when, I guess when we are ready.

9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black and doom metal?
So far it's been good, the EP has just been released but the feedback/reviews have been great so far. The majority likes both the doom/black elements and we hear often that we have our own sound and that we have created something very dark, weird and atmospheric and that the material is original etc, and thats a good thing because when we started this thing again we wanted to go our own way and to create our own sound. We didn't want to be another retro band or a band who plays only fast for the sake of it. Our main goal was to create a dark and disturbing  atmosphere and I think we've achived that.


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?
David is in Anguish, a great doom band also from Uppsala, they have released two albums. Daniel is in Iron Lamb and Usurpress who just recorded their new album. I'm also the singer in Sarcasm, we're working on new songs for a new album, five of them are complete at the moment.

11.Currently you are working on a full length album that is a concept recording, can you tell us a little bit more about it?
I told you a little bit, but I can tell you that the first album will be about the birth of god, the creation of universe, the laws of the universe, the creation of earth and man and what man is capable of creating, an undelibrate creation of unwanted and the consequences universe has to face because of this. Part 2 about the storms (wars) and part 3 will be about the final storm and ultimately a new order in the universe. half of this concept I had in my mind a long time, after we recorded the EP I thought maybe this could work if we did a trilogy and combine the meaning of the band name which actually by coincidence was in the original story but in a different form, so I changed and added stuff here and there so it could fit three albums. The story is a combination of spiritualism, law of attraction, philosophy, sci-fi, duality, biblical elements, real historical events, the politics in history and the present, and the future. The idea is to combine everything and tell a saga. And the whole story will be told through perspective of God. He's telling the story, but in a different way. There will be twists and turns and messing of the minds. The concept will be very blasphemous if you're religious and thats the whole point, we're not here only to turn the crosses upside down but to turn everything upside down. The lyrics will all be in english in case people wonder, that was not the case with the EP where the vocals where in three or four different languages, even if it has atmospheric value to do so I want people to understand the story instead of me singing in kurmanji or latin or something.

12.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?
Well, we like lots of different stuff, not only doom or black metal or whatever metal, I mean I also listen to a lot of movie soundtracks, 60s and 70s music etc (even 80s pop music) Of course the music we play is extreme metal but it's not necessarily one band or a style that is an influence, instead the whole spectrum and we are very careful not to copy a sound or a band, there are plenty of those bands. The most important thing is to create an atmosphere that belong to us and that can be definable. But sure, we are all fans of 80s black or speed metal, the good thing about that period is that those bands tried really hard to create their own sound and almost everyone succeeded in that aspect. Black metal could be done in different ways and that way of thinking is what inspires us. Most of that mentality were sadly gone in the 90s when rules were set how extreme music should be. Uniqeness became secondary, it was more important how your corpse paint looked like or how many churches that got burnt.

13.What are some of your non musical interests?
I watch movies, lots of them, mostly old ones and every genres as often as possible when I don't work with my bands. Daniel is also a film buff and writes a book now and then. The others are mostly into music I think.

14.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Yeah, its really cool to see these good reactions to the EP, we thought the music would be somewhat hard to grasp, but it has reached people who understand what we tried to achive with this EP and that's the most important thing. We really appreciate all the good reviews and positive words it recieved so far. But beware, this is just the beginning, the Prima Mobilae is yet to come....

Circle Of Noose/Spreading Anti Human Propaganda II/Depressive Illusions Records/2015 Demo Review

samedi 19 décembre 2015 à 07:15

  Circle  Of  Noose  are  a  solos  project  from  Brazil  that  plays  a  very  experimental  form of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2015  demo  "Spreading Anti Human Propaganda II" which  was  released  by  Depressive  Illusions  Records.

  A  very  dark  and  raw  black  metal  sound  starts  off  the  demo  and  after  a  few  seconds  melodic  guitar  leads  and  the brief  sounds  of  a  human  tortured  are  added  into  the  music  which  also  sets  up  the  mood  for  grim  black  metal  screams  to  become  a  very  huge  part  of  the  recording  and the  music  also  gets  very  progressive  at times.

  Synths  can be  heard  in  some  parts  of  the  songs  without  ever  over  powering  the  music  and  they  also  add  in  a  touch  of  ambient  and  some  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  and  some  songs  also  bring  in  a  brief  use  of  spoken  word  parts  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  blast  beats can  be  heard  and  the  riffs  also  bring  in  a  vintage  90's  style  to  them and  the  music  gets  very  avant  garde  at  times  but in  less  of  a  mainstream  and  more  in  an  underground  fashion and  as  the  album  progresses  elements of  depressive  black  metal  can  be  heard.

  Circle  Of  Noose  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  can  be  very  grim,  raw  and  depressive  for  the  most  part  while  also  adding  in  avant  garde  and  experimental  elements  to  create  a  very  original  sound,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and r aw  while t he  lyrics  cover  dark  and  violent  themes.  

  In  my  opinion  Circle  Of  Noose  are  a  very  great  sounding  raw,  experimental  black  metal  solo  project  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Rapist  Of  Souls"  "Vultures  Circling  Above  Carnage  And  Rape"  and  "Gnaw  their  Bones".  8  out  of  10.
