Poenari Interview

lundi 22 juin 2015 à 00:32

    1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

Our band was formed in 2010. At the end of 2010 we recorded our first demo (line-up – D. Babecki - guitar, J. Zawistowski - bass, S. Szczepanski - drums, L. Szulczyk, M. Ziobrowski – vocals). In 2011, we recorded our debut album „Rule of the damned” which brought 28 minutes of infernal death/black metal. This album was released by Hellthrasher Prod. In 2012, we started to work on new material. In 2013, our second album was released on tape (line-up - L. Szulczyk - vocal, K. Zdanowicz - vocal , D. Babecki - guitar, A. Krogulski - bass, L. Tomczak – drums).



   2. So far you have released a demo and 2 full lengths, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recordings and also how do they differ from each other?

We play old, sleazy death/black metal which is inspired mostly by Swedish metal, but it remains in our own climate. We don’t want to discover new styles or philosophies. We think that these two albums definitely differ from each other. “Rule Of The Damned” is rough death/black metal whereas “Wrath War Lucifer” is more mature and of course longer. Songs are faster, trancelike, more aggressive. The whole album heads to black metal, we invited Beldaroh (Besatt) to cooperation, so you can hear his vocals in 2 songs. “Wrath War Lucifer” is more harsh and old school.



    3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

     Texts are about violence, war, suffering, sex, and alcohol. They are blasphemous and brutal stories which praise  the devil.

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

The name Poenari is inspired by the climate of medieval castle located in Europe (Romania), its mystery and darkness as well as its location (forests and mountains).



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

We play mostly in clubs, Poenari’s music is a fucking strike. We value the atmosphere of the CD, so people who have sizable collection of CDs, vinyl and so on.



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

The concerts are planned, but we can’t say anything more at the moment.



7.Recently EEE Recordings re-issued your 2013 album, can you tell us a little bit more about this label?

Yes, of course. Eee Recordings released “Wrath War Lucifer” on CD and for digital download. It’s very professional label. We’re very glad about our cooperation. The promotion has started. The album is being promoted, there are reviews and interviews. There isn’t any problem to buy the CDs.



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



The interest in our music definitely rose after the releasing of “Wrath War Lucifer”. People from all around the world are listening to our music. We’re glad that these people are at different age.



9.When can we expect a new album and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

We think that there won’t be any radical changes on the next album of Poenari. You’ll hear the same harsh, filthy music inspired by the old school of metal from the 80. and 90. We try to hold on to some outlines during our work, we don’t want to change them. We want to develop and improve our abilities. Our albums differ from each other, they aren’t boring. Probably it won’t take long to release the next album. Maybe in the next year.



10. 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?

We like to listen to various music. Many bands had and influence on our music. We listen to: Unleashed, Mayhem , Enslaved, Ac /Dc, Decapitated and many many more. There are also a lot of good bands in the metal underground.

 11.How would you describe your views on Luciferian, Satanism, and Occultism?

We don’t want any division, membership, or compartmentalization. We want to do our job as we feel it. Lucifer is the inspiration for making great melodies. It’s about freedom and fun. Every listener should be able to interpret the songs on his/her own.



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

Thanks for the interview. We invite everyone to listen to our music. Support the metal underground!

dimanche 21 juin 2015 à 05:47

  Cornucopia  Ov  Nonexistence  are  a  solo  project  from  the United  Kingdom  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  plays  an  ambient  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  self  released  2015  ep  "Misanthropic  Blackened  Elysium".

  A  very  dark  and  atmospheric  ambient  sound  starts  off  the  ep  and  after  the  intro  the  music  goes  for  more  of  a  modern  and  depressive  style  of  black  metal  along  with  a  great  amount  of  grim  screams  and  you  can  also  hear  a  great amount  of  distorted  melodies  and  the  music  and  the  solos  and  leads  that  are  utilized  are  in  a  very  dark  and  melodic  musical   direction.

  At  times  the  music  mixes  both  the ambient  and  black  metal  parts  together  and  most  of  the  musi9c  sticks  to  a  slow  or  mid  paced  style  of  atmospheric  and  depressive  black  metal  and  the  music  also  adds  in  a  touch  of  noise  at  times  and  you  can  also  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  the  recording.

  Cornucopia  Ov  Nonexistence  creates  another  black  metal  recording  that  is  very  depressive  and  atmospheric  while  also  adding  in  elements  of  elements  of  noise  and  ambient  along  with  a  touch  of  drone  to  create  a   very  dark  ep,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  misanthropic  and  depressive  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Cornucopia  Ov  Nonexistence  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  ambient  and  depressive  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Misanthropic  Blackened  Elysium"  and  "Mortem  Aeterna".  8  out  of  10.

Nebiros/VII/Folter Records/2015 CD Review

dimanche 21 juin 2015 à 03:40

  Nebiros  are  a  band  from  Germany  that  plays  a  very  raw  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2015  album  "VII"  which  will  be  released  in  July  by  Folter  Records.

  A  very  atmospheric  sounding  synth  starts  off  the  album  and  after  the  intro  a  brief  use  of  clean  playing  is  utilized  before  going  into  more  of  a  black  metal  direction  along  with  some  grim  screams  and  melodic  guitar  leads  that  are  also  brought  in  quite  a  bit  throughout  the  recording  and  the  atmospheric  and  clean  parts  also  mix  in  with  the  heavier  side  at  times.

  Spoken  word  parts  can  be  heard  at  times  and   they  also  give  the  music  more  of  a  ritualistic  feeling  and  the songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  with  the  faster  sections  utilizing  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  and  displaying  more  of  a  raw  side  of  black  metal  and  some  of  the  riffs  also  bring  in  a  touch  of  death  metal  at  times  and  you  can  also  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  the  recording  and  later  songs  also  bring in  a  touch  of  old school  thrash  and  modern  metal.

 Nebiros  plays  a  musical  style  that  is  mostly  rooted  in  the  old  school  style  of  90's  black  metal  but  also  mixes  in  a  lot  of  atmospheric  elements  and  a  more  modern  style  to  create  some  very  dark  and  heavy  music,  the  production  sounds  very  powerful  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  Polish  and  cover  Satanism, Sex,  Blasphemy  and  Anti  Christian  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Nebiros  are  a  very  great  sounding  satanic  black  metal  band  and  if  you are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Zakon  Czarny"  "Galaxis"  "Staruch"  and  "Legion".  8  out  of  10.

  Classical  guitars  can  be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  some  of  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  small  amount  of  clean  singing  while  some  of  the  certain  leads  also  bring  in  a  more  melodic  and  modern  style  of  black  metal  an  as the  album  progresses spoken  word  parts  can  be  heard  at  times.

  Stilla creates  a  black  metal  album  that  is  very  diverse  mixing  in  a  great  amount  of  melodic,  atmospheric  and  progressive  elements  into  the  songs  while  some  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  amount  of  raw  aggression,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  Swedish  and  cover  nature  themes.
