Seraphic Disgust Interview

jeudi 31 décembre 2015 à 09:34
1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

Seraphic Disgust is a rotten mixture of War, Death, and elements of Black Metal.

2.So far you have released a demo and a full length, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on both of the recordings?

The "demo" was recorded soon after guitarist/vocalist AC and I (NB) formed Seraphic Disgust. I'd like to think it gets the point across, however its very raw and poorly executed. I would NOT recommend listening to it. Haha...
  As far as the full length, I feel the musical sound was very true to our intentions. The embellishments added by Ed Talorda (sound engineer/producer) really tied the album together.

3.The lyrics cover Demonology and Occultism, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in these topics?

  Around the time of the formation of the band, I had been heavily studying these dark subjects. In creating this thoughtform (Seraphic Disgust) a sigil had been created and is featured on the cover of the CD version of the "AltarCunt" release. Of course the sigil contains personal hidden meaning...

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Seraphic Disgust'?

Our Name directly pays homage to the classic novel "Paradise Lost" which was a immense influence in the songwriting.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

Recently we opened for Bolzer and Ritual Necromancy. The show went fairly well. I'd say our stage performance could use a little work...

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

Right now, our only plans are preforming with Venom Inc and Necrophagia at a local venue. After that we will be playing in Portland, Oregon for the third FAMINE FEST.

7.The cd version was released on 'Engulfed in Darkness Records' and the cassette was released on  by P-18 Records, can you tell us a little bit more about these labels?

Both are fairly new and promising labels, that have been easy to work with. Hope to work with them more in the future. Another cassette release had been made by Headsplit Records for the AltarCunt album as well.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of war, black and death metal?             
  So far I've only really heard feedback from a few like minded individuals (from varying countries) and a few publications like your own. It seems to have somewhat positive reviews. Some are eager for our next effort.

9.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?

All 3 other members are involved in various extreme bands. AC plays guitar for Antebellum666 and Impure Consecration. Guitarist IL plays in Ascended Dead, and bassist RR is also a member of Condemned. Each one of those bands is currently active.

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

With Seraphic Disgust, there will always be a mixture of extreme elements, but to the core we are a Death metal band and will remain in the realms of death.

11.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?

Of course we are inspired by the classics; Angelcorpse, Blasphemy, etc...one major impact on our song writing was the joining of IL. He has a very distinct, blackened style of composing...

Lately I've been addicted to the Mortem discography!

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

Hails and thank you for listening to our music! Look out for a split later this year/early 2017 between us and a truly killer band. (More to be announced soon).

  Nature  sounds  start  off  the  album  along  with  some  ethic  folk  instruments  and  ritualistic  chanting  being  added  into  the  music  a  few  seconds  later  as  well  as  some  melodic  chanting  and  on  the  second  track  they  start  adding  in  whispers along  with more heay atmospheric  sound  which  also  retains  the  folk  elements.

  Both  of  the  riffs  and leads  can  be  very  melodic  at  times  along  with  all  of  the  musical  instruments  having  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  while  the  vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  a  small  amount  of  blast  beats  can  be  heard  while  the  music  is  more  focused  on  either  a  slow  or  mid  paced  musical  direction.

  Later  on  during  the  recording  they  also  bring  in  a  a  couple  of  instrumental  tracsk  while  later  later  songs  also  bring  in  a  small  amount  of  clean  playing  and  melodic  pagan  singing  and  the  screams  also  start  developing  more  of  a  depressive  tone  and  they also  bring  in  a  cover  of  Goatmoon's  "Kunnia  Armageddon"  before  closing  the  album  with one  of  their  own  songs.

  Bastarth  plays  a  style  of  pagan/black  metal  that  is  very  epic,  melodic  and  atmospheric  sounding  while  also  having  its  raw  moments,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  Paganism  and  Nature  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Bastarth  are  a  very  great  sounding  pagan/black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Cal  the  Last  Battles"  and  "Prayer Madness".  8  out  of  10.

  A  very  dark  and  atmospheric  sounding  synths  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  nature  sounds for  a  couple  of  minutes  and  after  the  intro  the  music  goes  into  a  heavier  direction  while  also  keeping  the  atmospheric  elements  as  well  as  mixing  in  more  ambient  touches  which  also  gives  the  music  more  of  an  epic   feeling.

  When  vocals  are  added  into  the  music  they  are  grim  black  metal  screams  and  the  solos  and  leads  also  use  a  great  amount of  melody  and  spoken  word  parts  can  also  be  heard  at  times  while  the  vocals  can  also  get  very  depressive  at  times  while  some  songs  also  being  in  a  small  amount  of  clean  playing  and  all  of the  music  sticks  to  a  very  slow  musical  direction  while  the  last  track  does  close  with blast  beats.

  Radogor  plays  a  style  of  ambient  black  metal  that  is  very  slow,  atmospheric  and  epic,  the  production  sounds  very  raw  and heavy  while  the  lyrics  cover  philosophy,  nature,  and  misanthropic  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Radogor  are  a very  great  sounding  atmospheric,  ambient  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "I  Would  Like  You  To  Fall  In  Love"  "Light Sadness"  and  "Take  With  You".  8  out  of  10.

Morodh/The Demo/Satanath Records/2012 Demo Review

jeudi 31 décembre 2015 à 01:48

  Morodh  are  a  band  from  Russia  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and plays  a  depressive  form  of  post  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of their  2012  demo  which  was  released  by  Satanath  Records.
 
  A  very  atmospheric  synth  sound  starts  off  the  demo  along  with  a  melodic  post  metal  guitar  lead  a  few  seconds  later  as  well  as  some  high  pitched  depressive  black  metal  screams  and  both  of  them  dominate  the  recording  and  the  guitar  riffs  also  use  a  great  amount  of  melody  while  you  can  also  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  the  recording.

  Clean  playing  along  with  a  small  amount  of  acoustic  guitars  can  be  heard  in  some  parts  of  the  songs and  violins  are  brought  onto  the  second  track  which  is  also  long  and  epic  in  length  and  all  of  the  music  remains  true  to  a  very  slow  musical  direction  and  you  can  also  hear  a  touch  of  ambient  at  times  and  they  close  the  ep  with  a  short  acoustic  instrumental.

  Mordh  played  a  style  of  post  black  metal  on  this  recording  that  was  very  depressive  and displayed  more  of  a  raw  sound  than  what  was  to  be  heard  on  later  recordings,  the  production  sounds  very  raw  yet  heavy  while  the  lyrics  cover  hopelessness,  loneliness  and  despair  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  was  a  very  great  sounding  recording  from  Mordh  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  depressive  post  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this demo.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Hopelessness".  8  out  of  10.

  A  very  heavy,  fast  and  raw  black  metal  sound  starts  off  the  ep  along  with  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  and  high  pitched  screams  and  after  awhile  the  songs  start  bringing  in  a  great mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  while  the  vocals  also  have  their  angry  yet  grim  moments  and  the  riffs  also  use  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking.

  At  times  the  vocals  can  be  very  depressive  and  the  riffs  also  bring  in  melodies  at  times  while  you  can  also  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  the  recording  and  the  music  goes  back  to  the  mid  90's  style  of  fast  black  metal  as  well  as  bringing  back  to  the  chaos  that  was  present  in  that  era  and  the  last  track  also  brings  in  a  brief  use  of  melodic  guitar  eladsEnter  Chaos"  and  "Evoke".  8  out  of  10..

  Svarthaueg  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  is  very  fast  and  raw  in  the  mid  90's  tradition  and  they  keep  everything  in  a  very  chaotic  musical  direction,  the  production  sounds  very  raw  yet  powerful  at  the  same  time  while  the  lyrics  cover  Occultism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Svarthaeueg  are  a  very  great  sounding  fast  and  raw  occult  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "
