Daemon Of Oa Interview

dimanche 4 février 2018 à 03:16
1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?
1. Daemon οf Oa is an one man black metal project formed in Patras, Greece in 2016. I had some spare thoughts for quite a long time and so I decided to gather them all together thus creating the album. I was in a heavy metal band called Clamor of existence from 2011 until 2016, so it had my undivided attention. I released an EP on September of 2017 called “An evil inhale” and on January of 2018 i moved on to release a full length called “Death iniates life”.

2.So far you have released an ep 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 eah other?

2. The EP was made with no production knowledge, as i am now working for the first time on the production part on my own. In 'Death initates life' i tried to improve it. The second album has more melody, which is an integral part of my music.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with your music?
3. The lyrics have to do mainly with intense feelings that I hide under metaphors. I also use Satan as a symbol of independence and resistance. The second album moves as far as the theme in situations like depression, internal battles, man's tendency to self-destruction, but also other themes that are stories of mythical/fictional content that I have made up myself.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Daemon Of Oa'?
4. The inspiration came from the name of a well-known ancient Greek musicologist, Damon, from the OA area of Athens. This musicologist had a theory on how music affects people. In the name I added an 'e' to make it look like a demon, which creates various associations based on what I said.

5.With this project you record every by yourself but have worked with a full band before, how would you compare the two?
5. With Clamor of Existence I learned some basic things, such as the art of bonding musical instruments in harmony. I also had my first experiences with music composition and professional production.

6.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?
6.At the moment I am searching for a label.

7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?
7. I have received positive feedback so far, while trying to promote my music by myself.

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

8. Music is an important part of my life. It is a means of exploring myself and what I am trying to do is transfer my experiences from this journey to someone else and if I can somehow create emotions to the listener. I will continue to do so, for as long as I can.

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?
9. Darkthrone, Ιnquisition, Rotting Christ, Gorgoroth and Nachtmystium are my basic influenses. I mostly listen to BM bands from the  90’s, heavy metal and speed thrash. 

10.How would you describe your views on Satanism and Occultism?
10. I use Satan as a symbol of independence and resistance, but also as a means of getting in touch with the deeper knowledge of ourselves that we are deeply afraid of. It is a dark pulse that pierces through me when composing music.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?
11. I like literature as a reader but as a writer as well. I am also working on my phD dealing with mental illness in ancient Greece.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
12. Thank you for having me here.

samedi 3 février 2018 à 06:05

  Goatkraft  are  a  band  from  Norway  that  plays  a  raw  mixture  of  war,  black  and  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2018  ep  "Angel  Slaughter"  which  will  be  released  in  March  by  Iron  Bonehead  Productions.

  A  very  dark  and  evil  sounding  intro  starts  off  the  ep  along  with  some  demonic  whispers  and  voices  before  going  into  a  very  fast,  raw  and  brutal  war  metal  direction  which  also  uses  a  great amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  while  the  vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams.

  Bestial  growls  can  also  be  heard  at  times  while all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  along  with  the  music  also  mixing  in  a  great  amount  of  90's  and  early 2000's  influences  and  as  the  ep  progresses  a  small  amount  of  mid  tempo  riffing  can  also  be  heard  and  they  close  the  recording  with  a  cover  of  Black  Witchery's  "Unholy  Vengeance  Of  War".

  Goatkraft  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  the  rawest  elements of  war,  black and  death  metal  and  mixes  them  together  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  death,  hate,  destruction  and  blasphemous  themes.

  In  my  opinion Goatkraft  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  black,  war  and  death  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Angel  Slaughter"  and  "Holocaust  Winds  Of  Blasphemy".  8  out  of  10.
