Vinter Interview

samedi 18 janvier 2014 à 00:17
1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?
   Well, for this new album the band had new plans about the lineup, but we wanted to end soon  the new vinter´s album, so these plans could not be carried on, but wait more news soon about these plans

2.You have a new album coming out this month, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical direction it has taken and also how does it differ from the demo you released in 2011?
   This new album has taken a new direction unlike the demo "My path to depression" as it is a more elaborate album, and a new style, in terms of the composition, and has a sound less raw than the demo

3.Can you tell us a little bit more about the themes and concepts you bring out with your music?
   In my music I always try to express my ideas, how I feel, and things like that, and it's good that people like my work, since I make music because I like, and I like to express me, and if the people liked what I do. That is good

4.I know that the band name means winter in Swedish, what was the decision behind using this is a band name?
   I named the band "Vinter" because I started this project in the winter season, it was a winter full of cold and depressive feelings, and thought it was a good name because it was related to how I felt inside and also what I wanted to express

5.Has the band been able to do any live shows or is this a studio project?
   I've always liked the idea of ​​doing live shows, but, since the band has members from different countries, it is difficult to make the live shows, I even thought about doing live shows alone (J. Abraham) but I'm not a very good singer, haha, but I think in a few years I will, (as I prepare well and think how to make the live shows)

6.What are some of the other plans the band has for 2014 other than releasing a new album?
   As I told in a previous question, in this year there will be plans for a new lineup of the band, and for now, I think those are the new plans for the 2014, haha, and, if we had any other plan for the band, we will announce it in our facebook page

7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of depressive black metal?
   Well, the project is not very famous, and I'm not complaining,and the few people who know us, have been very good, there is much support from the people, and that's good

8.According to the Metal Archives page the band members are also involve with other musical projects, can you tell us a little bit more about them?
   I do not know much about the projects of my bandmates , except for the band "Meaning of Life", a project in which I worked on the last album with "Danny" and "Marco Ceccarelli". 
"Danny" also participates in the project "Failure" with "Fabian" the band released two demos (Demo I, Through memories) and an EP (Perfect Isolation) and is a highly recommended band.
Another project of "Danny" is "Night" a Post-black metal band, that project released one demo (Souls in the air) and an EP (Lake of Tears) in this band Danny was the only member, this is band also highly recommended

9.On future releases, what direction  do you see the music heading or progressing into?
   I would not know what to say about the future of the band, because, over time, changes your way to compose songs, and the way you see the music, and thus you're going to create different things, things that you even imagine you'll do

10.What are some bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
   When I heard for the first time the black metal, never thought I was going to form a band of one of its subgenres, and one of the bands that most influenced me is "Hypothermia" because it was the first band I heard from DBM, other bands that influenced me were "Inverna" and "Gris", are very good bands, the best for me, they are bands that have great songs and understand  the true meaning of DBM 
Now I have strayed a little bit of the pure DBM,Now I hear more bands of post-black metal (like the old "Alcest" "Dernier Martyr"), Post-rock (like "GIAA" "Caspian"), Atmospheric black metal ("Lustre" "Woods of desolation") and similar genres

11.Do you have any non musical interests?
ahh, no, I think I don't have any interest other than musical, haha
I really like the music

12.Before we wrap up this interview do you have any final words or thoughts? 
ahh, yeah, hope you like the new album, and thanks for your support
Greetings 

Sorry for delay ! 

J. Abraham.

Sadistik Impaler Interview

vendredi 17 janvier 2014 à 01:05
1.What has been going on with the band since the recording and the release of the new 7 inch?
ZahWarlock: We are a bit busy with own life and composing new songs for the new album maybe in 2014.

2.Recently you have released a new 7 inch, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical direction you have taken with the new release?
Shalwend: The song within this 7”EP is by far the best to our taste. Musically it’s unlike what you heard from the previous releases. It’s something we do, not wanting to recreate what we’ve done in the past but at the same time having the essence of what trademarking Sadiztik Impaler is all about. Our musical direction and concept stays on what we’ve always been doing… To my best interested this is by far the best songs compared to the previous release.

3.The has been an 8 year gap between the last 2 releases, can you tell us what has been going on during those years?
ZahWarlock: After the release of the last album, I was having some troubles with the government. I was in and out of the military prison etc. It takes sometimes for me to settle down and continue with the band. It’s not an easy task.

4.The lyrics cover a lot of Satanism, Anti Religion and Occult themes, can you tell us a little bit more about your interests in those topics?
Shalwend: Basically lyric is done by me (Shalwend) and we have by far evolved from the Satanism shit! We are more powerful than Satan. Satan can go fuck himself!!! Anti-religion? Yes totally… Before this I think highly of Satan due to rebelling against the religion. Cos religion fits only those fucks who want to be slaves to a higher power, obedient to the gods and lambs to the fucking slaughterhouse. For me, we who are born free… lives free to judge our own lives… Who give them religious leader of today to tell us what the fuck we should do? They don’t even know themselves… They only read books written by those who previously read books too… and decided they have the rights to preach and tell others what is sin and hell to the sinners… These holy fucks judged persons as if they are the shit… So they decided that they should lead and make obedient asswipes pay them money for so called God’s cause… Now religious leader around the world are freakin’ rich while look at the world… Billions dead due to war, not to mention, babies and children. Have any of these dead prayers answered? Aw fuck no… so what are religions anyway? Fuck ‘em! Occult? Yeah stuffs like that seems like nice to touch up to the black metal image thing… Fuck that… Shouldn’t be saying anything more… Damn!

5.I remember a few years back you had a song called Bestial Syonan to Eastern predator and it covered some topics I was not familiar with, is this a part of your own country's occult or pagan heritage?
Shalwend:  Syonan-to is basically what Singapore is called during the Japanese Occupation. I don’t know which fucks decided to use it, but as far as I’m concern is we are not patriotic and we hate the government. That is why the Japanese invasion was better!

6.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Sadiztik Impaler'?
ZahWarlock: I don’t wish to reply this. Next Please!

7.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
ZahWarlock: We haven’t play any live yet and we didn’t plan any in the future. What we care most is releasing our stuff and spread the plague.

8.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
ZahWarlock: No!

9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?
ZahWarlock: There’s alot of feedback we received so far but I didn’t even care none of them because there’s always positive and negative, some even review it wrongly. It depend of certain souls to understand what our direction are. Not all are having a black metal heart! Most of them are posers!

10.What is going on with the other musical projects these days that the other band members are involved with?
ZahWarlock: Shalwend Soraths is working with his own band name EIBON. Akhzareth has another band name “PHENOMISTIK” along with true As Sahar mastermind Barchiel. They gonna be in studio in 2014 to record their stuff soon. Better Watch it out!

11.When can we expect the next full length and also what musical direction will it be heading into?
ZahWarlock: Dark! Chaos! Raw! Noisy! Barbaric!

12.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
ZahWarlock: I’m still outdated who listen to old stuff such as Blasphemy, Impaled Nazarene, Thou Art Lord, Sarcofago etc…didn’t follow much band nowadays.

13.Outside of music what are some of your interests?
Shalwend:  Sex, drinks, sex, sex and having the fuck of our lives!!
ZahWarlock: Sex, Booze & didn’t care much about other Posers!

14.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
ZahWarlock: Thanks for this interview. Watch out for our next album. Gonna be more chaos!

Dark Managarm Interview

vendredi 17 janvier 2014 à 00:43
1. Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and release of the new album?
Hello. Our new album is out on October 31 and since we have a few projects. At first, we will be present on several concerts in France, in our region, in Paris, but also in Belgium.
Many concert dates are being negotiated by the end of 2014 but nothing is sure yet.
In a second step, we begin to think for making a video clip with a title of our last album.
Otherwise, we are also in the process of composition for a new recording.
 
2.You recently released a new album a couple of months back, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical direction it has taken and also what are some of the things that you where able to do with the new album that you where not able to do with past releases?
It’s early to talk about what the realization of our new album can give us because it's only been out for two months.
Concerning the musical direction, our only desire was to make a Black Metal album that is compact, fast, brutal and consistent from beginning to end.
In our opinion, our direction remains the same as our previous realizations: just make Brutal Black Metal inspired 90s and without compromise!
 
3.Can you tell us a little bit about the lyrical content of the new album and go more in depth on the topics you have covered with the new release and also how would you describe your progress as song writers over the years?
The lyrical content is not really different than our previous achievements. If we see a difference this is in the overall construction of the album. On our old records, we had a topic per song. On this new album, we have a continuity between songs. Throughout the album, the nine songs tell a story : We describe the human arrogance and lies of religions that will make the Horned King will return to earth with its armies and legions of demons to destroy and dominate the world. Each song describes a passage of this story.
 
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Dark Managarm'?
The Managarm is a gigantic wolf, powerful and uncontrollable. We find that this name characterizes well our music that we try to make bestial, violent and chaotic on CD but also on stage.
 
5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
We had great experiences on stage, for example in Belgium or with ENDSTILLE. But for us every concert is a different experience and we take pleasure every time. So it is difficult for us to tell you that concert was better than another.
About our stage performance, we have war paint but we do not put unnecessary artifices. We want to be judged only on our music and our energy.We try to make a powerful impact as a fist in the face of public. We play the songs without letting the audience breathe. At each concert, people come to us for us they appreciated this impact, this shock.
 
6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
We have plans in negotiation but nothing confirmed. I invite you to follow the news on our facebook page.
 
 
7.The new album came out on Iron, Blood & Death Corporation, do you feel they have done a lot when it comes to getting your music out there and also how would you compare them to Infernal Kommando, the label that has put out your past releases?
To be more precise, we changed label regularly. Infernal Kommando Records (IKR) takes out our first album “Victorious March”, Eisiger Mond Productions (EMP) takes out our EP “Diva” and Iron Blood & Death Corporation (IBDC) takes out our new album “Back From Hell” this year. Indeed, it is difficult to find a label in which to stay. IKR stopped making CD and has focused its efforts on Tapes. EMP stopped its activity. Our role is not to compare labels with each other but to thank all of them because they made ​​sure that our music can exist. They all work differently but all helped Dark Managarm to produce his records. So we are very satisfied with all of them.
 
8.Early last year you put out a split with Nemesis Irae and Goat Perversor, what are your thoughts on the other bands that where a part of the split?
This split CD was an extraordinary experience with two exceptional bands. There are ten tracks on this CD with three different Black Metal way fromthe fastest to rawest. Goat perversor is a true black metal with a strong voice like Impiety and our Brothers from Nemesis Irae play a powerful and fast black metal. This is a really good record, with a nice production and which also has a real success!
 
9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to the newer material by fans of black metal?
As already explained, it’s too early to get feedback on our new album. But some echoes make us to think that "Back From Hell" is well received by the public.
We already have a name that starts to be known thanks to our previous productions and also thanks to the split CD. We hope that the new album will have the same impact.
 
10.What is going on with the other musical projects that the band members are involved with these days?
Today, members of Dark Managarm not have other plans. All are involved only in the development and promotion of our music.
 
11.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
We saw a change in composition in particular on the structure of the songs. You can already feel this change on the title track "Back from hell". But overall, we remain inspired by the 90s and want to stay on the same way : Brutal and fast!
 
 
12.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Black, Death and Thrash … Each of us has different influences.
It’s difficult to choose because there are too many groups that we appreciate. If you really want names I can mention: Dissection, Sacramentum, Massacra, Impiety, Dark Funeral, Absu, Angel Corpse, Belphegor, Bewitched, Sodom, Deicide, Destroyer666, Enthroned, Gorgoroth, Horna, Immortal, Cannibal Corpse, Setherial, Marduk, Slayer, Inquisition, Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult, Impaled Nazarene, Panzerchrist, Funeral Mist, Hate Eternal, and many others …
For example, at this moment, I listen a lot the album "Blasphemers Maledictions" of "Azarath" or the album "War Upon Worship" of "The Furor".
 
13.How would you describe your views on Satanism and Occultism?
We are against all monotheistic religions that require men to be weak and subject to a cult. Generally, these religions appear when the man afraid of death and what it has after death. This is bullshit, we die and we rot is all! We do not really worship Satan, but its guideline where everyone can fulfill his desires and accomplish great things. We seek to denounce and fight against this crap.
 
14.Outside of music what are some of your interests?
Sex! Otherwise, some of us are bikers. For my part I ride a Harley Davidson Road King. Our drummer has received awards in powerlifting. It is a strength sport where you have to lift heavy weights ... Our bassist plays "role-games" but on a human scale with real axes and swords in forests of northern France. I think his character is a dwarf!
 
15.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interveiw?
Thank you for this interview and for the interest. Good luck for the future.

Hangatyr Interview

jeudi 16 janvier 2014 à 00:52
1. Can you give us an introduction to the band and also what has been going on since the recording of the new album?

Well, we are Hangatyr, consisting of vocals, 2 guitars, bass and drums. We play a sort of “paganized” Black Metal – without being too restricted in our style of music.
The recordings of our last record “Elemente” (elements) was finished in early 2013. Since then we played some live gigs, have been looking for a record label and finally decided to release it independently. Now we are looking forward to release it on February 1st this year.

2. Recently you have recorded a new album, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical style it has taken and also how does it differ from your past recordings?

The song writing process was nearly the same as always, the recording sessions took place in the Unholy studio like on the album before. So there are no big differences with this part. The musical style is mainly Black Metal, but as always there are a lot of influences. I think “Elemente” is far more compact in the songs, coming more straight to the point than “Helwege” back in 2010.

3. The lyrics as well as the band name are based on Norse paganism, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in Norse Paganism and also are you interested in the Paganism of other cultures?

We all are interested in Norse Mythology more or less, so that is why the lyrics are about this topic. And I know, there is a lot in interest in other mythologies or paganism of other cultures. Of course I can’t tell about how well-marked this is for the other guys.

4. What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

Uhm… now you’ve got me there.. There have been lots of shows, and every single one has its very special moments. Personally, I liked a lot our third show at all, it was on the inner yard of a castle, the atmosphere was quite impressive.

5. Do you have any touring or show plans once the album is released?

First of it all, the Release-Party of course, like said before it will happen on February 1st in Jena (Café “Wagner”), the second fixed event is our appearance on the Barther Metal Open Air in August this year, more are planned but still to be confirmed. A “tour” in the proper sense will is nearly impossible at the moment, since we all got day jobs.

6. The new album is coming out in March, what are some of your expectations once the album is released?

I don’t know who informed you, but the official release date is January 31st – but still, we got no special expectations, we just hope, people will like it and it will reward us with some gigs.

7. The new album is going to be self released after releasing your previous album on Nocturnal Empire, are you open to working with another
record label again in the future?

We are open to work with a label again, no question. The decision to release the album independently had several reasons. One, the search for a label for an underground band like we are, is hard and time-consuming. In these times, labels try to get by with their already signed bands (especially for financial reasons). On the other hand, our album was finished for almost a year and we wanted to present it to the world.

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

Feedbacks are always different, some people like what we do, some others not, so this is hard to say.

9. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?

Time will show… there are no exact plans to choose one direction or the other. We do what we want and what we think is fitting our band, there are no restrictions so far, as long as we are satisfied with it.

10. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

There are few bands that really “influenced” our music. At least, we hope so. One can never say, he would not be influenced by anything, your environment, your personal constitution – everything will have an effect on you more or less. The style of music we listen to is mainly death, black or pagan metal, but everyone of us has its one favourites. All in all its really widespread.

11. Outside of music what are some of your interests?

Speaking for myself, I like painting a lot (if time permits, though), for the others… don’t know, nothing uncommon… just the stuff we all do like hanging around with your friends, drinking (lots of) beer…

12. Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?

Thank you very much for this interview, to all of you reading this: visit us in the internet (www.hangatyr-metal.de), visit us live – have fun.
Horns up!

Off the record: Interview was conducted with Tele (guitars), cheers
