Circle Of Noose Interview

vendredi 4 mars 2016 à 23:46
1.For those that have never heard of you can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?

I use to say Circle of Noose is an experimentation of disturb and obsessive fascination, a corrupt ritual of musical soundscapes inspired by unmasked feelings and the ugliness inside the being, so musically it follows the way this thought leads, it’s in an artistic level, a shotgun aiming subjection to blow away heads, so far C.o.N have a lot of stuff released… To implement C.o.N has been active since ending of 2014, when I started with some recording experiments and tests, but only in the ending of 2015 the best results were released!

2.How would you describe the musical sound of the project and also how does the stuff you do with this group differ from the other projects that you are a part of?

Soundscapes of disturbing thoughts, visions, katharsis, and an invisible wall of terror closing in and fascination by the morbid itself!!! To be honest, I myself haven’t label C.o.N, people say it is Experimental Black Metal, so let it be whatever they want in their insane fucked up minds, but it is hard for me to describe, as for the second part of question, yeah, it differs a lot, I play drums or guitar in some black metal/old school black metal/black doom projects, and we share thoughts to create something, even when you create a riff, the drums may not sound like you had on your mind, and there’s also stuff like lyrics and etcetera… musically C.o.N is very far away from what I was used to write and compose, I put myself out from my comfort zone, so to speak, if you take a listen to Eschatological Gnosis, there are a lot of backgrounds and aesthetics… lyrics as well are very different coz’ they follow a different approach… 

3.Since December you have released a great amount of material, do you feel you put a great amount of time and effort into this musical project?

Actually, I don’t feel so, I mean of course I spend some time doing this, but is something very natural to me, it’s total fucking katharsis flowing like blood in my veins, I think that is what it is about, not only C.o.N, but all my efforts with projects or bands… actually I put a great amount of time writing lyrics and thinking about the concept, I’m becoming obsessed with this shit! Most of the time I compose the songs based on the lyrics and the feelings, expressions the words can bear…

4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you have explored with this project so far?

In the beginning I used ancient and occult archetypes in order to spread the face of darkness and nothingness, Lucifer being a great symbol of power, wisdom and keeper of the endless firmament of darkness, or the cosmic blackness, aiming with harsh philosophy to crown death and spread negativism over mankind, after that I moved into misanthropic aggressive mood, and keep going toward the limits of dubious taste in order to make metaphors, and instigate the subjection, abuse, rape, humiliation, sexual atrocities, disbelief, fear, hate, the emptiness of modern life, hopeless, death… the point is nothing is so clear, you have to read between the lines…   

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Circle Of Noose'?

Me and my demons in formation, like a circle idolizing death and all scars life brings, it is a spectral gallows ready to threat the existence, expose all the failures and then just hang, I think that’s pretty much it!


6.With this project you record everything by yourself, how would you compare it to working with other musicians?

As I’ve said before, being C.o,N everything differs from all musical efforts, I can say I have full liberty to do whatever I want to, in terms of write lyrics and music, so I can go whatever I want to and walk free among many backgrounds, only to please myself as a musician… it is really a real solitary work, on the other hand I use to have good times on rehearsal with other bands and projects, drink a lot, have nice and productive conversation with my comrades, or just talk bullshit… work with other musicians is good if you have some affinity with the person in question, otherwise I don’t enjoy so much play with someone just because he/she knows to play some fucking instrument!   

7.With your other musical projects you keep everything away from Metal Archives or bandcamp, but with Circle Of Noose you can find a metal archives and bandcamp page, can you tell us a little bit more about it?

Metal archives? I heard about, I don’t pay much attention to metal archives anyway, Circle of Noose have no “public” here in Brazil, feedback here is almost zero, it was a way and choice I had to reflect and go forward it, the stark difference is what C.o.N is… I mean this voice is so impatient and anxious, I just can’t stand still with this shit burning my soul, spirit, consciousness, mind whatever the name you want to give, with all releases available on labels’ bancamp, I did the official myself, other projects you make reference to, follow into necrounderground abysmal streams, dive deeper into the abyss to find their stuff…

8.You have a split coming out with 'Beyond Life', what are your thoughts on the other band that had participated on the recording?

I use to enjoy the insanity Beyond Life has put out on their stuff, especially the first demos and Blackened Skies, they are really disturbing, this split is a total experimentation, it is disturbing, paranoid, malicious and chilling, give a shot if you are into grey soundscapes of insanity, harsh and majestic riffs, atmospheric and psychedelia!

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

Not so good, but at least not so bad! Divulgation still very slow into this immense sea of bands and projects, Some good reviews, label support, personal feedback reported to me, enough to keep the project being open to public and not personal as some projects I have! But I feel like a lot of people don’t understand the concept I think, especially The Circle of Obsession, coz’ have sampler of rape act, and call to hospital audio and a lot of bizarre lyrics and sounds, such as Stench of putrid mouth… forced kiss, abused cherub, under scab… I received a personal feedback (e-mail) from a girl that claimed that I was “a perverted and weirdo with tendencies of psychopath motherfucker…” maybe the excessive titles with rape and abuse, and woman screaming sampler? I don’t know, but, that was by far the best and coolest feedback I had reported to me, I can say she haven’t got the point of the whole thing, you can understand only what you are able to, with subjection, but at least she react, C.o.N is not a cool black metal project to listen to, it is not beauty post fashion, don’t follow trendwaves, just instinct, it is malice towards mind and soul! Stay away if you are some kind of politically correct hypocrite hipster black metaller and go fuck yourself!! NO HUMAN RIGHTS HERE!!!  

10.Where do you see this project heading into musically during the future?

As long as I keep writing lyrics inspired by my visions and sensations about this world, life and death I’ll keep reflecting this on the songwriting, and so C.o.N will be alive, but, is kinda hard to say when you are always trying to evolve and see, and have perception of live and death as a constant metamorphosis of enlightment, so I just can say I’ll keep writing music as long as I feel like doing this!  

11.What are some of the musical influences you bring into this project that you are not able to do with the other ones?

Explore the deep dark dungeons of my own abstractors? I think so! clear vocals, avant-garde methods, weird vocalizations, try all experimental visions I have, not so experimental/original sometimes indeed, but running away from the conventional, atmospheric aesthetics, soft music… or darker and heavy as my essence can be sometimes, Most of the time I listen to traditional black metal, it’s my primordial background, all I know start with black metal, but I decide to explore this abyss and paradise I have within me, and found methods to my death kult I haven’t experience before, this is what C.o.N is about most of time, sometimes it is only darkness of nothingness devouring me, and I like it!!!

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

Thanks again for your support and interest , really appreciate your effort, the obscure label Cvlminis records released three C.o.N acts, Spreading Anti Human Propaganda II, The Circle of Obsession and Eschatological Gnosis, strictly limited edition, Depressive Illusion Records have all C.o.N stuffs Available including C.o.N newest effort Rapist of Souls, go ahead and order with them if you have interest, or check out C.o.N bandcamp: https://circleofnoose.bandcamp.com/
Stay Dark!!! Praised be the DeathKult!!!

vendredi 4 mars 2016 à 03:47




  Brazil's  solo  project  have  returned  with  a  new  recording  that  is  in  the  experimental  style  of  black  metal  that  was  established  on  previous  recordings  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2016  demo  "Rapist  Of  Souls"  which  was  released  by  Depressive  Illusions  Records.

  A  very  dark  and  avant  garde  sound  starts  off  the  demo  along  with  some  melodic  vocals  being  going  into  more  of  a  raw  musical  direction  that  uses  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking,  blast  beats,  high  pitched  grim  black  metal  screams  along  with  some  melodic  guitar  leads  and  elements  of  dark  ambient.

  When  the  music  slows  down  it  brings  in  more  of  a  depressive  style  of  black  metal  and  other  than  the  first  and  last  track  the  music  sticks  mostly  to  a  slow  musical  direction  while  also  having  its  atmospheric  moments  and  one  song  is  all  instrumental  and  there  is  also  a  brief  use  of  clean  playing  while  one  track  also  mores  in  more  of  an  experimental  and  avant  garde  sound  and  the  last  track  shows  the  music  returning  back  to  a  faster  direction  and  the  song  is  also  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  Circle  Of  Noose  creates  a  black  metal  recording  that  is  very  raw  and  depressive  while  also  adding  in  atmospheric,  experimental  and  avant  garde  elements,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark,  violent  and  depressive  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Circle  Of  Noose  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  raw,  depressive  and  experimental  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  cassette.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Deepthroating  The  Larynx"  and  "Rape  of  All  Hope  And  faith".  8  out  of  10.

  Drum  beats  and  avant  garde  style  acoustic  guitars  start  off  the  demo  along  with  some  tortured  voices  in  the  background  and  after  a  minute  the  music  gets  more  heavier  and  starts  adding  in  melodic  guitar  leads  before  adding  in  grim  yet  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  and  they  also  get  very  depressive  and  suicidal  at  times.

  Deep  growls  can  be  heard  in  some  of  the  vocals  and  the  music  also  gets  very  atmospheric  and  experimental  at  times  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  some  of  the  songs  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  and  one  of  the  tracks  also  brings  in  ambient  style  synths  along  with  one  of  the  tracks  being  all  instrumental  and  all  of  the  songs  stick  to  a  very  slow  musical direction  and  the  last  track  brings  in  hospital  call  samples  as  well  as  a  brief  use  of  clean  playing.

  Circle  Of  Noose  creates  a  black  metal  recording  that  is  very  slow,  raw  and  depressive  while  also  being  very  experimental  at  the  same  time,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  and  depressive  themes.

Chiral/Snow/Heritage/2016 EP Review

jeudi 3 mars 2016 à 08:02

 Italy's  solo  project  Chriral  have  returned  with  a  new  recording  which  continues  the  atmospheric,  post  black  metal  and  neo-folk  style  of  previous  recordings  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  self  released  ep  "Snow/Heritage"  which  will  be  released  on  March  22nd.

  A  cover  of  Woman  Is  The  Earth's  "Sage  Moon"  starts  off  the  ep  and  it  begins  with  a  very  raw  guitar  tone  that  slowly  starts  going  into  more  of  a  heavier  direction  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  blast  beats  and  tremolo  picking  are  added  onto  the  recording  along  with  the  music  getting  more  melodic  and  atmospheric.

  All  4  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  and  the  guitar  leads  bring  in  a  touch  of  post  black  metal  and  throughout  the  recording  you  can  hear  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  when  synths  are  used  they  bring in  even  more  of  a  melodic  style  and  some  songs  also  bring  in  acoustic  guitars  that  are  more  in  a  neo-folk  style  and  all of  the  tracks  are  instrumental  along  with  a  couple  of  them  being  all  acoustic  while  the  last  song  shows  a  return  to  black  metal.

  Chiral  creates  an  ep  that  has  one  cover  tune,  2  folk  tracks  and  closes  with  an  atmospheric  black  metal  track of  his  own  and  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  amount  of  diversity  with  no  vocals  ever  being  utilized  and  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Chiral  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  atmospheric  post  black  metal  and  neo  folk,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Sage  Moon"  and  "Whiteness(The  Snow  And  The  Borrowed  Lights)".  8  out  of  10.

Mourning Soul/Ego Death - Ritual I/Dolorem Records/2016 CD Review

jeudi 3 mars 2016 à 07:07

  Mourning  Soul  are  a  band  from  Italy  that  plays  black  metal  with  a  touch  of  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2016  album  "Ego  Death  -  Ritual  I'  which  will  be  released  on  March  25th  by  Dolorem  Records.

  Distorted  reverb's  start  off  the  album  before  going  into  a  faster  musical  direction  that  uses  blast  beats  and  growling  vocals  that  also  take  the  music  into  a  blackened  death  metal  direction  and  there  is  also  a  brief  use  of  spoken  word  parts  and  some  of  the  riffs  also  bring  in  a  small  amount  of  melody.

  Clean  singing  can  be  heard  in  the  music  at  times  along  with  all  of  the  musical  instruments  sounding  very  powerful and  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  the  guitar  solos  and  leads  bring  in  more  of  a  melodic  style  to  the  tracks  and  after  awhile  black  metal  screams  start  to  make  their  presence  known  on  the  recording.
 
 The  music  also  gets  very  atmospheric  at  times  and  some  songs  also  bring  in  a  small  amount  of  classical  guitars  and  as  the  album  progresses  more  synths  and  thrash  elements  can  be  heard  and  some  songs  also  show  the  band  getting  more  experimental  and  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  amount  of  diversity  while  some  of  the  fast  riffing  uses  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  that  also  gives  the  music  more  of  a  raw  black  metal  style  and  there  is  also  an  instrumental  that  also  adds  in  more  of  a  depressive  feeling  and  the  last  track  is  very  long  and  epic  in  length.   

  Mourning  Soul  plays  an  musical  style  that  is  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  more  modern  and  aggressive  style  of  black  metal  while  also  being  very  experimental  at  the  same  time  and  mixing  in  a  heavy  dose  of  death  metal,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark,  depressive  and  violent  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Mourning  Soul  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  black  and  death  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Resurrection  Through  The  Serpent" "Chamber  Of  Bones"  "Moribunds"  and  "The  Judgement  Of  Gehenna".  8  out  of  10.
