Abigorum Interview

mercredi 23 novembre 2016 à 04:23
1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?
1. Project from Russia, formed in 2012 in St.Petersburg by Aleksey Korolyov. The music can be described as a black doom ambient.

2.How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recordings you have released so far?
2. The group formed after the ambient project Satanath because a new style in which I wanted to try myself, did not fit into the frames of ambient. Genres of project is different and varies from many styles, so as I have broad musical tastes.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with your music?
3. No texts. music tells about deep matters as space, death, philosophy. More instrumentals.

4.I know that the name 'Abigorum' comes from the demon Abigor, do you have an interest in Occultism?
4. Not occult, but adheres to the dark ideology. I do not understand, when me compared with Abigor band, or say I take their name. They are also can be blamed that they came up with not their name. all the names is only a set of letters. if Mayhem called themselv differently (eg, Dead Forest), from that their cult album would not be worse.

5.With this musical project you record everything by yourself, are you open to working with other musicians or do you prefer to remain solo?
5. First there were session musicians such as Amezarak, Astarium, Winter Vampyr, Misanthrofeel, Dmitry Kolosov, but then project became a solo, as I'm a perfectionist and I can not work with people.

6.Can you tell us a little bit more about your other musical project 'Satanath'?
6. Yes, this project formed in 2011 as a forerunner of the label, there is a lot of ambient music, which is composed in the programm is not made for this, on it wrote music in different styles.

7.Recently with your other musical project you where a part of a 4 way split, what are your thoughts on the other projects that have participated on the recording?
7. There was a lot of splits in Satanath, in Abigorum only compilation with Cryostasium. Styles are similar, though it sounds different.

8.You also run the record labels 'Satanath Records' and 'Symbol Of Domination Productions', can you tell us a little bit more about these labels?
8. I have two labels, Satanath Records and Symbol Of Domination. SR only for metal, founded in 2012. SOD in 2013 (founded by my colleague from Belarus), it published unformat + music style is not suitable for the SR. It was still a sub-label DeadDogSkull & HeilHellProductions, for unformat, founded in 2012 too, but he separated himself from us in 2014. There is still a distro GrimmDistribution (founded in 2011 by the same colleague from Belarus).

9.Also on a lot of the albums you release they usually have other labels working on them as well, can you tell us a little bit more about this?
9. Yes used a lot of partners, as it is convenient. CDs and money in half. For bands more promotion. Worked with many good guys.

10.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music projects by fans of black metal, doom and ambient?
10. I have several fans, many are interested in the projects. Hopefully I will attain even more after the collaboration. although not set myself this goal. just captured the creativity in time. decided not to look for labels for publication and published himself, because I want that everything was made beautifully, without mistakes. Unfortunately, even the major labels make a lot of mistakes, I would like to have everything to be perfect and in time.

11.Where do you see yourself heading into as a musician in the future?
11. I see myself as a famous boss of label, sipping a martini on the beach. or contrary, in a Russian prison - some Christians tell the authorities what we are bad (we now have these medieval practices in the trend), or that it is easier, any employee of the security forces decide to take away the business (although it is difficult to call me a millionaire), comparing the label name to extremism.

12.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?
12. Many. Bands - Death, Autopsy, Obituary, Pestilence, Atheist, Suffocation, Morbid Angel, Vital Remains, Bolt Thrower, Nile, Immolation, Darkthrone, Mayhem, Judas Iscariot, Burzum, Satyricon, Immortal, Candlemass, Bathory, Celtic Frost, Slayer, King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, e.t.c. Standard set. I love many genres, even jazz and blues. Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Dead Can Dance, Dargaard... But lovely style always - old school death metal. Check out my last.fm

13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
13. Thank you for interest to my music friends
Best regards

mardi 22 novembre 2016 à 05:42

  Illemauzar  are  a  band  from  Singapore  that  plays  a  mixture  of  black, death  and  thrash  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2016  album  "The  Ascension"  which  was  released  by  Sepsis  Records.

  Epic  sounding  synths  start  off  the  album  and  after  the  intro  the  music  goes  into  more  of  a  blackened  death  metal  direction  along  with  some  grim  black  metal  screams  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  a  decent  amount  of  blast  beats  can  be  heard  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to t hem.

  When  tremolo  picking  is  utilized  it  gives  the  songs  more  of  a  raw  feeling  and  the  tracks  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  when  guitar  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  fashion  and  the  riffs  also  use  a  decent  amount  of  melody  and  there  is  also  an  instrumental  track  that  also  introduces  Asian  style  acoustic  guitars  onto  the  recording  while  the  main  focus  remains  more  on  a  heavier  style  and  the  last  track  is  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  Illemauzar  plays   a  musical  style  that  is  mostly  rooted  in a   very  aggressive  and  melodic  style  of  black  metal  while  also  mixing  in  influences  of  thrash  and  death  metal  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  Luciferian,  Goetic,  Blasphemy  and  Darkness  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Illemauzar  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  black,  death  and  thrash  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "The  Dessolute  Assumption"  "Doctrine  68"  and  "Reclamation".  8  out  of  10.

  Clean  guitar  playing  starts  off  the  demo  along  with  some  demonic  growls  a  few  seconds  later  and  after  the intro  the  music  and  after  the  intro  the  music  goes  into  a  very  fast  and raw  black  metal  direction  that  also  uses  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  full  chords  and  the  vocals  are  grim  screams.
