Interview   with  Wrath  From  Above  done  by   Patrick




1.Hails! when  did you  two  first  meet  and  was  it  long  before you  all  started  the  band? Who  came  up  with   Wrath  From  Above  as  the  name  for  the  band?

DM - Hails comrades ! Well, the first thing we can say is that the band does not have a regular history. At first Antar & me met by playing in the same Old School Death Metal Band (disbanded for the moment). But we kept contact as good friends and started having many other projects, along with our sound engineer, Korwent from Spearhead Sounds. One day, Antar was bored and said “Hey, doing Black Metal is easy as shit, I already made 4 songs, do somebody want to put vocals on an album ?” and so it began.

Antar - Yep, actually it was more because I got plenty of time due to my unemployment and I composed really quickly one third of the album (with a track that didn't made it to the final tracklist maybe a bonus in perspective). In fact we began to take the project more seriously with the next batch of songs (better ones) but everything was pretty quick in terms of writing… the rest was really not that fast !
The name was waiting in my head for the right project and no, it was never thought as an homage to Immortal.



2.I believe Wrath  From  Above   is  a  two  man  band have  you  ever  thought  of  adding  more  members to  play  live  shows  or  do you  prefer to  work  as a two  piece?

Antar - The fact that we are a two piece is not a choice in the first place, but finding competent musicians in our area that are free is a pain in the ass. Hopefully the first album will give us a bit of a reputation and we will have a real drummer for the next release. A session drummer or full time member, that we don't know yet, but future shows will depend on it. Bass on the album is played by a good friend living in a city near us so we just lack a good drummer and a second guitar (which is easy to find) for live settings.




3. The  band  is  getting  ready to  release  the  debut  cd  "Beyond Ruthless Cold"   how  long  did  it take  the  band  to  write  to the  music  on  this  release? And  for  the  readers  who  have  never  heard  Wrath  From  Above   music  how  would  you  best  describe  the  bands sound?

DM - To write the music, maybe 2 weeks. To record it, 1 week. To re-record wrong parts, mix and master it, maybe 9 months. Music is so unfair. Describe the band in a few words ? Relentless Satanic Frost Assault ? Marduk, Infernal War, and soviets fighting Satan.

Antar - Truth is above. Songs are not so complex, they are really straightforward.  I like it but the project was never meant to go that far in the beginning. Next album will be the same in terms of violence but more technical, varied and personal (at least I will try to achieve that).


4.Who  usually  writes  the  lyrics  for  the  music  and  what  are  some  topics  the  band  writes  about?

DM - I wrote the lyrics. Classified as secret files. Some historic true stories about when the demons joined the nazis a few years ago, you don’t want to know more about it.

Antar - Exactly. In life some things are better kept secret. We have all lived some events that gives meaning to this idea.




5.Besides  the  debut  cd  "Beyond Ruthless Cold" does  the  band  have  any  past  demo's  or  other  merchandise  available  for the  readers?If  yes  where can  the  readers  buy  your  merchandise?

DM - Not yet. For the moment, everything that could ever be released belong to Apathia Records.

Antar - We have just that one track that didn't made it to the record (first one written). It's weaker than the rest but we may give it as a bonus on bandcamp at some point.



6.I  believe  the  band  comes  out  of  France's  black,death  metal  scene  what  is  your  opinion  of  the  metal  scene  in  France?

Antar - There is a lot of band that we can be proud of in extreme metal (we listen mostly to all the genres under that name). Death metal, grindcore & blasting black metal (raw or polished it doesn't matter) for the most part. We just LACK THE AUDIENCE !

DM - By far too much serious posers. We live in Nantes and right there the Metal Scene is pretty strong and unified, but I used to live in Paris and it is absolutely devastating. Hipsters and stupid elitists Black Metalheads everywhere. We listen to Grindcore and Brutal Death before everything else, and the scene right here in France is in complete agony, the promoters are struggling as much as the new bands who do their best. We’ve got a shitload of awesome bands, but no recognition.



7.Who   are  your  all-time  favorite  French bands  and  are  their  any  new  French  bands you  feel  the  readers   should  check  out  soon?

Antar - Many french bands are worth a listen, especially in black metal. To me it's probably the only genre where we have some top tier bands musically speaking.  Of course DsO, Antaeus… go check Metal Archives, all this scene is more than 20 years now and is really incestuous.

DM - Hum… I really love the avant-garde, progressive and crazy Metal scene in France. My favorite French Metal Bands are by far Kalisia, SUP, Sortilège and Misanthrope. But we’ve got a really strong Black Metal scene, one of the most productive and intense in the world (Deathspell Omega, Blut Aus Nord, Antaeus, Penissatan...).
To recommend new French bands, I’m recently digging the new material from Pryapisme and öOoOoOoOoOo, and the new albums from our friends Red Dawn, Nullentropy or Regarde les Hommes Tomber are really worth a listen.



8.Besides  bands  are  their  any  honest  and  reliable  labels  or  distro's  you  could  recommend  to the  readers?

DM - I used to order a lot on Comatose Music, Lavadome, Blast Head Records and Sevared Records when I was buying a ton of CDs per months. Now I usually order directly to bands via Bandcamp if I can because that’s how they get the better retribution, or buy in concerts / festivals.

Antar - I only buy Brutal Death Metal nowadays (raw and filthy one). Go check all the bands signed to New Standard Elite. Fuck fake drums in BDM.


9.In  your  opinion   what  does  underground  metal  mean  to  the two of you?

Antar - It means that we are poor.

DM - Nothing. Willing to be underground is as ridiculous as willing to be mainstream. Working hard should be rewarded, and not giving a shit is the best way of life ever.



10.Other  then working  in   Wrath  From  Above   do  you  currently  play  in  any  other  bands  or  solo  projects?

DM - Yeah. So much projects. We have many other albums pending with Antar and Korwent. Right now I’m playing in like… 5 or 6 bands. I’m doing the vocals with Helioss, a Melodic Death/Black project who will release its 3rd album March 24th, on Apathia Records too, and you should really check it.
Both of us are also playing in Gastropode, a full bass Goregrind act with no guitars, just a HM-2 Bass and 4 singers, and we released and album a few months ago, buy it please, we need moula.
I made a song with the Polish Dead Bread, and have an Old School Death Metal album to be released in the year with a dude from Egypt. And secret bullshit projects you don’t want to hear about (Paupiettes).

Antar - Actually I played, and will play, with friends in a lot of shitty projects too bad to mention (if curious go visit Garbage Tuesday Records facebook page or bandcamp). I'm also starting an ultra serious goregrind label called “One Shot One Kill Records”, where we will release album limited to one only copy (ever).
For the serious side hail Korwent from Spearhead Sounds that brought me a more professional approach and confidence about my music, so that my two first albums from different projects are both signed on competent labels. Lot of projects with this dude, in about every style I love, are incoming.



11.When  not   working  on  new   music  or  band  business  what  do  you  like  to  do  in your  free  time?

DM - Smoke crack, fuck bitches and suck dicks in festivals.

Antar - Snort speed. Listen to blastbeats over whatever riffs.


12.Thank  you  for  taking the  time  to  fill  this   interview   out   do  you  have  any  final  words  for the  readers?

DM - We despise you, but thanks anyway.

Antar - Time will come when you'll have to choose which side of the hammer & the sickle you are. Be prepared.

Interview with Grafvitnir done by Patrick

1. Hails  please  introduce yourself to  the  readers? What  gave  you  the  idea  to  start this  band   Grafvitnir  and  how  did you  all choose the  name  of the  band?

We, being Grafvitnir, consists of three individuals that have joined forces to express our admiration and love for the kingdom Beyond. 
We simply needed a vessel to express ourselves and the forces that work through us.
The name Grafvitnir is the name of one of the countless serpents that resides under the world tree Yggdrasil in Norse mythology. We thought it would be a suitable name as we are deeply entangled in the serpentine forces of Sitra Ahra and also hails from Scandinavia. 

2. Grafvitnir  is  getting  ready to  release  their  fourth  cd  "Obeisance To A Witch Moon"  how  long  did  it take  the  band  to  write  the  music for  this  release? And does the  whole  band  work on  the  music  or does  one  member  usually  write everything?

The recording of this one was the quickest one up to date actually. It took a couple of weeks, both composing and recording. We create lyrics and music altogether as a unit, it just comes naturally to us. But I might add that that varies a lot, from song to song and album to album.


3. "Obeisance To A  Witch Moon"  is  the  bands  fourth  release  how  would you  say   Grafvitnir's  music  has   changed  over the  years?

I wouldn't say that it has changed that much. Our well of inspiration are the forces of Beyond which exists outside time and space. Our music is timeless as well.

4. Besides  the  newest  cd  are  any  of the  past  releases  still  available  if yes where  can  the  readers  buy  it? Other then  cd  releases  does  the  band  have  any  other  merchandise  available  for the  readers?

I think most of our releases are available as well as shirts and patches if you contact carnal records.http://www.carnalrecords.com/
 
 
5. Grafvitnir draws inspiration for the lyrics from the occult when did you  become  interested  in  studying the  occult?

We have been interested in the Occult since we were really young. That has always been our main driving force.

6. Who   are  some  occultist  you  read  and study? Besides  occult  subjects  do you  study  any other  subjects  if  yes  what do you  study?

Kenneth Grant, Aleister Crowley, Dénis Lindbohm - there is a plethora.
Other subjects we study are string theory and quantum physics and personally I like to read about psychiatry, psychology, hypnotism and pretty much everything concerning the human psyche really.  

7. What   does  black  metal   mean  to  you?
Aggressive and/or atmospheric music with dark and/or occult lyrics. There's got to be a sinister touch and vibe to it. The idealization of Black Metal would be tunes that sucks the listener into realms of desolation and fathomless paradoxical revelations, where time (as we know it) has ceased to be (or never was). 

8. Does  Grafvitnir  play  live  very  often  or  do you  prefer  working  in  the studio? What   have  been  some  ofGrafvitnir's   most  memorable   shows?

We actually have never played live, as of yet. Perhaps we never will, that remains to be seen.
We prefer to work in the studio or rather participate in the whole process with composing, recording and deal with the creative process with lyrics, cover artwork, and so on.




9. Are  their  any  shows  or  tours  planned  for  2017  if  yes   where  will  the  band  be  playing? And  who  are  some  bands you  will  be sharing  the  stage  with?

We have received some interesting offers from different organizations and bands, but we haven't decided anything yet.

10. Besides working with Grafvitnir do any of the members currently play with any other bands or solo projects?

At the moment, Grafvitnir are our main concern, but our bass player are involved in a death metal band as well.

11. Thank you for taking the  time to fill this interview  out  do  you  have  any  final   words  for the  readers?

Thank you for the interview and the support. We really appreciate it.
Keep the flames of Serpentine Fire burning!

Interview   with   Manuel   drummer   of   Centrate   done  by   Patrick
 
1.Hello   Manuel  how  are  things  going  in  Germany  these  days  for you? Please  introduce  yourself  to  the  readers?
 
Hey guys! I´m Manu, the drummer of the German thrasher "Centrate". We just released our new Album "Ritual". We do everything by ourselves, so I´m actually very busy to promote and sell our new album. It's a lot of work, but it´s very cool to get in touch with many different people.
 
 
2.At  what  age  did  you  become  interested  in  playing  the  drums and  are you  self taught  or did you take  lessons  when  first  starting  out?
 
At school I had a very cool music teacher. He teached me some grooves at the drums, so that I was infected:-) He supported me and I became a part of the school-band.
My parents supported me, too. They bought me a drumkit and spend me drum-lessons. The first years I took drum-lessons to learn the basics.
 
 
3.Who  are  some  of your   influences and favorite  drummers? Besides  drums  do you  play  any  other  instruments  if  yes  what  instruments  do you  play?
 
Unfortunately, I play drums and percussions only.
My influences aren´t in metal only, but my favorite drummers are most metal drummers.
Actually I like the drumming of Pete Webber (Havok), Gene Hoglan (Testament) and Mario Duplantier (Gojira).
Beyond metal I´m fascinated by Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree), Carter Beauford (Dave Matthews Band) and Neil Peart (Rush).
 
 
4. Manuel    when  did you  first  meet the  other  members  of  the  band ?And  who  chose  the  name  Centrate   as  the  band  name?
 
The band was formed in 2010. At this time I searched musicans to form a band. A friend of mine introduced me Niki and we talked about the idea of a band. Niki get Marcel with him in the band as bass player. After that we were looking for a second guitar player and Chris got in. At this time Niki played guitar and did the vocals as well. After a while Tobi joined the band to support them at the guitar, so that Niki could concentrate on the vocals only.
The name Centrate is an artificial word that's out of centre of hate. This was the result of a brainstorming and it shall reflect the wrath of thrash metal.
 
 
5.What   is  the  current  line-up  of  the  band?And  for  the  readers  who  have  never  heard  Centrate's music  how  would  you  best  describe it?
 
Centrate are:
Niki – Vocals
Tobi – Rhythm and Lead Guitars
Christ- Rhythm Guitars
Marcel- Bass
Manu: Drums and Percussion
 We play Thrash Metal with influences of the 80's Bay Area. But we try to mix it with modern parts and our own style.
 
6.Centrate   is  getting  ready to  release their  debut  full length "Ritual"  I  believe  this will be a  digital  release  are  their  plans  for  a  physical  release  soon? Where can  the  readers  find  and  buy the  debut?
 
You can order "Ritual" physically by us. Just write us via Facebook, on our Homepage or a E-mail (centrate@gmx.de). You can download or stream "Ritual" via Amazon, ITunes, Deezer, Spotify etc as well.
 
7.How  long  did  it  take  the  band to  write  the  music  on   "Ritual"?  Does  the  whole  band  work on  the  music  or  does  one  member  usually  write  everything?
 
Most of the songs we written in the first half of 2016. All our songs were formed in our rehearsal room by the whole band. Most of the time Tobi (Git.) came with a riff idea and then we work with this idea to form a song.
 
 
8.Who  usually  writes  the  lyrics  for  the  music  and  what  are some  topics  you  write  about?
 
Our singer Niki wrote all of our lyrics for that record. Ritual is themed about different types of rituals, homicide and evil things. For example: Voodoo is about a ritual to curse someone. Ritual is thematically about a ritual that went wrong and evoke satan.. On "Revenge" a monk feels oppressed by his confidence and take revenge for that.
 
 
9.Also  the  band  self-released  the  debut  will  the  band  look  for  a  label  to  work  with in the future or  do you  all prefer to  self-release  your  music?Besides  the  debut  release  does  the  band  have  any  other  merchandise  available for the readers  if  yes  what  is  available  and  where  can the  readers  buy  it?
 
We had some label offers, but we decided to release “Ritual” by ourselves. But we're looking forward to work with a label in the future.
Beside “Ritual” you can order our EP “Tiger Force”, patches and two different shirt designs. We do everything by ourselves. You can order the stuff via our Homepage, Facebook or E-mail as well.
 
10.Does  Centrate get  to  play  live  very  often  if  yes  what   have  been  some  of the  bands  most  memorable   shows  to date?
 
We try to play as much as we can, but as a small band without a label or other bookers it´s hard to find a lot of shows.
One of the coolest gigs was our show at the M.I.S.E. Open Air 2016 with a lot of great bands. Another great experience was our first European Tour.
 
11.Are  their  any tours  or  shows  planned  for  2017  and  if  yes   where  will  the  band  be   playing?
 
In 2017 we are very happy to play at the Metal Franconia Festival with bands like Legion of the Damned and Ektomorf. Beside this we actually announced for a few more club and festival shows. There is nothing planned for a tour. But we hope to play a tour this or next year.
 
12.Manuel   in  your  opinion   what  is  the  best  and  worst  thing  about  the  underground  scene? And  in your  opinion  what  does  underground  metal   mean  to  you?
 
It's a difficult question....what is the underground scene? Where is the beginning and where the end of the underground scene?!
One of the best things is the solidarity between the bands, fans and the supporters. It´s sometimes like a big family.
The worst thing is the heavy way to spread your music. But: It´s a long way to the top if you wanna Rock ´n´Roll :-)
 
13.Besides  thrash  do you  listen  to  any other  forms  of  metal  or  music  in  general?
 
 
For shure! I´m a big music fan. I always spend too much money for new CD´s and LP´s...
I´m interested in many different kinds of metal (Thrash, Death, Heavy, Modern...) but sometimes I also listen to other genre of music like Classic Rock, Blues, Ska, Rap and so on.
 
 
14. Centrate    comes  out  of  the  German  thrash  metal  scene  what  is your  opinion  of  the  German  metal  scene?
 
Germany has got a great thrash scene since the 80´s. Sodom, Kreator, Destruction and Tankard leading the scene, but in the last few years new young bands come up and they shaking the "German" thrash scene as well.
 
 
 
15.Who   are  some  favorite  German  band  and  are  their  any  new  bands  you  feel  the readers   should  check  out  soon?
We´ve got a lot of great new bands in Germany. For example Dust Bolt and Pripjat. Both bands are playing on a high level and play great live shows. Check them out!
 
16.Besides  bands  are  their   any  good  labels  or  distro's  you could  recommend  to  the  readers?What  about  fan or  web-zines  are  their  any that you   keep  up  with?
Check out our friends and supporters of undergrounded.de! They spend their blood, sweat and beers for the underground metal scene.
 
17.When  not   working  on  new  music  or  band  business  what  do you  enjoy  doing  in your  free  time?
I love to do downhill and endurobiking with my friends and visit festivals and concerts.
 
18.Thank  you  Manuel  for  taking  the  time  to  fill  this  interview  out   do  you  have  any  final  comments  for  the  readers?

Interview  with     Nekro  Drunkz   done  by  Patrick


1.Hello  please  introduce  yourself  to  the  readers? When  did you first  get  into  metal  music  and who  were  some  of the  first
bands you  listened  to?

 Hello all perverts out there, Disgustor666 reporting to you live from the farthest depths of septic hell!!! Metal music gives me the Hershey squirts, I'll tell you about that instead. First time I got diarrhea was when I was just a young lad, very smelly! Shot out at 666 mph I reckon, but you can follow up with Guinness book of world records about that!  Slayer, Mentors, Impetigo, Anal Cunt, D.R.I., Nunslaughter Were some of the first bands that shaped my young warped mind. 


 2.Nekro  Drunkz  was  formed  in  2007  what  gave you  two  the
idea  to  start this  band?And  how  did you  come  up  with  the
name  Nekro  Drunkz?

Disgustor: Crystal Seth (guitars/vocal puking) and I were underage drinking even before the band was formed. Only death, metal, and booze is real!!! The idea to start the band came from alcohol and weed altering our young minds, we were total deliquents!  Originally we were thinking of calling the band "Menstruating Zombie", which is a great name I still think. But, somehow settled on Nekro Drunkz. It's a fukked up and dumb name, but still better than most names that newer bands choose! The real question is why the Piss did we spell the band with a Z at the end?!?! Fukk you!!!! That's why!!!! Drink a glass of pizz!!!!



3.What  is  the  current  line-up  of  the  band? For  the  readers  who  have  never  heard  Nekro  Drunkz's  music  how  would  you  describe  the band's  music?

Disgustor: My dumb self of course and the man you should all fear(hell, I'm scared of this cunt myself, I saw him eat a bowl of metal shavings and shredded maxi-pad bits just last week), Crystal Seth. Two piece only, no bass Bologna!!! Coming to a town near you to decimate your waste water treatment plant, and cause utter septic terror for your community!!! Eat a frozen turd in the meantime!! So... you wanna know about the music huh? In our fukked up world only the strong and the sleazy survive! Nekro Drunkz exclusively play perverted death thrashing grind! Stick your head in a Fukkin airplane toilet and hit flush, we sound kinda like that!


4.The  band  seems to  draw  influences  from  brutal death,grind and
even  some  thrash  elements  who  are  some  of  Nekro  Drunkz
biggest  influences?

Disgustor: Pornographic scenarios and Toilet activities first and foremost. Quite important! Music wise: Anal Cunt, Schnauzer , Nunslaughter , Impetigo, Autopsy, Macabre, Dead Infection, DRI , Mentors, Slayer, Meat Shits, Fornicator, Repulsion, Conqueror, Razor, Anal Blast, Pungent Stench, Gut, Inhume, Twisted Sister, Impaled Nazarene, Mortician. 

We listen to tons of other shit frequently, Lately for me: Saint Vitus(Reagers albums), Blizzard- "Pure Filth and Mayhem" , Vulcano(Live and Bloody Vengeance), Funebre demos, Unbounded Terror - "Nest of Affliction" , Splattereah (All, fukk you Sal!), Sadokist (Finland, all), Maggoty Corpse (Japan, all), Crysys - "Hard as Rock" , Accidental Suicide - "Deceased", Grand Belials Key.... on and on! Go Shiiiiiiiiiiit yourself!!!!! Have you finished that glass of Piss yet ?!!! If yes have another, if no jump off a cliff!5.Nekro  Drunkz    is  getting  ready  to  release  their  fourth release "Lavatory  Carnage"  how  long  did  it  take  to  write  the  music  for  this  release?Do  you  both  work  on  writing  the  music
or  does  one  member usually  do  everything?

Disgustor: Its our third album, we've had a lot of other releases, some people have mistaken one live release for an album. But "Lavatory Carnage" is our 3rd full length album. We wrote it pretty quick, only a couple months. We just huff some Jenkem that The Weregoat guys have left over, and then Piss in the 5 satanic corners of our friend Mason's bar, Rose City Strip. That's how we write most of our songs. Some times a song will come to me mid-bang and I have to write the drum parts on my woman's butt cheeks! 


6. "Lavatory  Carnage"  is  the  bands newest  release  are  any  of Nekro  Drunkz    past  releases  still  available  besides  releases does the  band  have  any  other  merchandise  available  for the
readers?  If  yes  where can  the  readers  buy  your  merchandise?


Disgustor: Our 1st album is sold out. Our 2nd album is still available from Moribund Records. Cassette version and full color t-shirts of "Lavatory Carnage" are available now from www.headsplitrecords.storenvy.com . We have some other limited releases that you can find in some distros if you decided to use those urine encrusted eyeballs of yours !!


7.I believe    Nekro  Drunkz's  is  a  two  man  band  have  you guys  thought  of  adding  more  members  to  make  a  full line-up  or  do you  prefer  working  as  a  two  piece?

Disgustor: if we added another member, they wouldn't last! They would likely die. They'd have to pass rigorous testing  and learn all 200 of our songs!! Who would want to do that?! We don't even want to be playing this music ourselves, but we are funded financially and under contract by a sinister hidden terrorist group from the Middle East.

8.Besides  working  in    Nekro  Drunkz  are  you  all  working with  any  other  bands  or  projects?

Disgustor: Seth and I also play in Cemetery Lust and are recording our 3rd album late 2017. For fans of extreme blasting death thrash!!!  Seth also plays in Torture Rack, which is hands down the most brutal band in the area, and they could hold their own against any big time band, musically or in a fight. I'm 100% positive of that!! 




9.What  does  underground  metal  mean  to  you?

Disgustor: Everything. There is only metal and it is invincible! Hopefully in another 5 or so years all the new comers who aren't really into metal will be weeded out and the strong will remain. Fukk off to promoters and phonies who are trying to gain fame and fortune for themselves, and not take care of the bands. That's not what it's about! Thanks to all those who are insane enough to take time out of their lives to book shows , go to shows , do artwork, do a fanzine, or anything to keep the underground moving. Don't give an inch to those PC political wimps either! Do what you want, when you want! Metal is and has always been extreme, so, don't ever stop the insanity, filth, and violence!!


10.When  not  working  on  new  music  or  band  business  what do
you  enjoy  doing  in your  free  time?

Disgustor: Sex and Booze! Jack my dangling knob all over the place! Listen to metal music. Singe my ball hair over a ceremonial flame. Clip my yellow toenails and leave them in people's mail boxes. Take dumps at work so I get paid for em. Check out different portable toilets around town to see what kinda treats I can find. Pee in soap dispensers. 

11.Thank  you  for  taking  the  time  to  fill  this  interview  out
do  you  have  any  final  comments  for  the  readers?
 
Disgustor: wash your hair with Piss and buy our new album from Moribund records! Eat a pussy everyday or jump off a building or both, the choice is yours, stand up for your right!! If your unfortunate enough to consider yourself a fan of ours, get in touch we have plenty of limited posters and stickers and shit that we send in there mail, the old school way!! Also, we are recording some new songs for an upcoming release on 7". Should be out in early 2017 so keep your brown eyes peeled, and throw some salt in there for good measure!!!! Crush and Fluuuuush-ah!! Listen to all the god damn bands on Headsplit Records - http://www.headsplitrecords.storenvy.com/

Interview  with   Gulnar  vocalist,guitarist   for  Illness   done  by   Patrick






 1. Hails  Gulnar   please  introduce  yourself  to  the  readers?When  did  you  first  meet  Carrion  who  handles the  bass  and  keyboards  for  Illness?

Hail. I am Gulnar leader of Polish / Norwegian Black Schizophrenic Metal horde ILLNESS. I also have few side projects and one of them is A.H.P, which with I lately released debut album. I was also a member or session member of few other black metal bands as well as dark ambient projects in the past.
I met Carrion in 1996 at our friends place. We start to talk about creating a band around 1999. It took us 2 years before we actually did it.






 2.  Illness    was  formed   in  2001  what  gave you  the  idea  to  start this  band? How  did you  choose  the  name     Illness   for  the  name  of the  band?

The idea was to to create sick black metal, different from the others. Like I said earlier, we have talked about making a band/project together since 1999. Back then I was a member of Black/Pagan project Nawiia. We recorded  debut album and I left from the band. Carrion took my place. After a while he quit too, and we have decided that this is the right time to make our plans real. I came up with the name. We were looking for something sick, so Illness was obvious choice, beside there was no other band with this name back then.





3.  Illness   recently  released  their  newest  cd  "Trvmna"  how  long  did  it  take  the  band  to  write  and  record  the  songs  on  this  release? Do  you  both  work on the  music  or  does  one  member  usually  write  everything?



Trvmna was released almost a year ago. We wrote this material in 2012/13.
Recording session took place in Monroe Sound Studio in september 2013 and we were producing it till april of 2014. We've been  as usual working together on music for this album.
I made all guitar songs, Carrion handle keyboard ones.







4.Gulnar    what  are  some  topics that you  write  about  for the  music and  does it  take  long  to  write the  lyrics for the  songs?



It depends : if this is lyrics for Illness I mainly write about mental disorder, fear, alcohol/drugs, death, depression….If its for A.H.P. I am trying to concentrate on scorn and hatred towards humanity. It usually take me few hours to write one lyric cause I am also trying to fit them into song while writing.




 5.  Illness   was  first  started  in  2001   how  would  you  say  the  music  has  changed  over the  years?Who  are  some  of the  bands biggest  influences?



First of all when we were making music for our debut album (which was lost during recording) it was keyboards that was the main instrument. I was adding guitar lines to it later on. In 2003 we quit rehearsing and we divided our music on guitar one and keyboard one. We added insane fast computer drums and furious vocals and this way
 we have created BLACK SCHIZOPHRENIC METAL. Since then we were naturally progressing… we have add some thrash elements and live drums to go even further.
On new album which we will record this autumn, we have again mix guitars with keyboards but we did it in the same vein as we did in “Zaraza” (track that appeared on Arkona/Illness split).
ILLNESS’ biggest influences are early BM bands like Mysticum, Thorns, Mayhem, Tsatthoggua…. Industrial bands like Profanum, GGFH, Current 93…. Classic Music like Chopin, Debussy, Grieg… as well as whole bunch of movie soundtracks…





6.Besides  the  newest cd  "Trvmna"    are  any  of the  past releases  still  available and  other then  cd's  does the  band  have  any other  merchandise  available  for  the  readers?



Some of them are still available. Check out ILLNESS’ :
store http://illnesshorde.com/shop.html
bandcamp http://illness666.bandcamp.com/ 
discogs https://www.discogs.com/label/642849-Paranoic-Abyss-Productions
All info about ILLNESS www.illnesshorde.com











7.Gulnar   you   handle  the  vocals  for  the  band  when did you  first  become  interested  in screaming/singing?Do  you  do  anything  special  to  keep  your  throat  and  voice   healthy  when  recording  new music? Who   are  some of your  favorite  vocalists?




I was into singing since I was a kid. I started as a vocalist in a first band when I was 15. I drink a lot of beer and smoke a lot to keep my vocal in good shape hahaha. Seriously I 've start to train my vocal again a little bit lately cause I had a break for last 11 years. There is/was plenty of good vocalists out there. Grishnackh of Burzum, Gaamalzagoth of Moonblood, Northwind of Tsatthoggua, Legion/Mortuus of Marduk just to name few.







 8.Other  then  the  vocals  you   handle  the  guitars  for  the  band  when  did you  start  playing the  guitars? Are  you  self taught  or  did you take  lessons  when  first  starting  out?




I have started when I was 15 and I've learned everything by myself







9.Who  are  some  of your  influences and  favorite  guitarists? Besides  the  vocals  and  guitars  do  you  currently  play  any  other  instruments?



I don’t have a favorite one. Basically I am not so much into skilled guitarists. I prefer those for whom atmosphere is the most important not those who want to show you how well they can play, if you know what I mean.
Bass if I have to, haha. I am planning to start to learn to play on drums cause so far I only know how to program them. The same goes with keyboards…





10. Gulnar   other  then  playing  in  Illness  you  also  are  in the  one man  band  A.H.P  what gave  you  the  idea  to  start this  band? 




In 2011 I was cooperating with some ambient project where I’ve met Outro. He was also a vocalist in brazilian project called Abismo. Outro asked if we could create raw BM project together. I was into that but I also wanted to mixed it with ambient. Outro didn't like it that much so he left after when we recorded demo. I was planning to start new ambient project before, that but I guess Outro helped me in a way...





11.As  mentioned  you  are the  sole  member  for    A.H.P   have  you  thought  of  looking  for   new  members  or  do   you  prefer to  work  alone?If  you   had  the  opportunity  to  work  with  any  musicians{past  or  present}  who  would  you   like  to  work  with?






I am looking for members interested in playing live with A.H.P. Like I said earlier I wasn't planning that A.H.P. will become my solo project. It was more accidental cause of lack of proper vocalist. I wasn't thinking about anybody in particular who I would like to cooperate with as A.H.P.
When it come to ILLNESS I am looking for a skilled drummer who can handle live parts on new Illness album.








 12.What  releases  and  merchandise  is  available  from   A.H.P ?  Where  can  the  readers  buy  it from?





I still have few copies of A.H.P. demo on tape and cdr pro format and of course A.H.P. debut album “Against Human Plague” cd format. You can also buy it in Via Nocturna’s webstore ofcourse http://www.vianocturna.com/releases/a-h-p-against-human-plague/
. Hopefully some t shirts will be available in september. Any questions about merch should be sended to ahphorde@gmail.com 






 13.How   do  you  feel   Illness's  music  is  different  from   A.H.P ?



ILLNESS is Black Schizophrenic Metal and A.H.P. is Black Scar Ambient, they are both Black Metal but they are completely different. Starting from lyrics (as I mentioned above) ending on music. A.H.P. is more simple, spontaneous and straight forward. On top of that, mixed with ambient. ILLNESS is more sick, more complex, more planned, based on different background. Everything has to be perfect here… You will understand it completely when you will finish to listen to ILLNESS' new album





14.Thank  you    Gulnar   for  taking  the  time  to  fill  this  interview  out.Do  you  have   any  final   words  for the  readers?




Thanks Patrick for the chance to present Illness and A.H.P. at your blogspot.

Hi Patrick, All is well for us.Bestial Soul  is a band of Thrash metal from France, we started in early 2013
and after two demo we have made our first album "Perpetual darkness" in September 2015.
Have done much to show in Paris since 2013, we also play a lot in the central region and made the MFest 2015 (with Belphegor, Hatesphere ...)






2.When  did you  first  meet the  other  members  of  Bestial   Soul ? What   is the   current  line-up  of   the  band?For the  readers  who have  not  had the   chance to  listen  to  Bestial   Soul's
music  how would you  best  describe  it?we met in early 2013,I put an ad on the net in 2012 I looked for a band of Thrah or Death and I was contacted by the guys who look for a drummer for a while.We have the same passion for Thrash and
metal in general.
the line up is the same since our beginning : Steven Joré (Guit/vocals),Jow Beranguer (Lead guit),Gwen Pigat(Bass)
and myself on drums .have made Thrash metal rather old school influenced by bands like,Kreator,early Sepultura,Slayer,Dark Angel, Exodus,Sodom,Testament,Death ......




3.Bestial   Soul    recently  released their debut  cd  "Perpetual  Darkness"  how  long  did it  take the  band  to  write  and  record  the  songs  on  the debut release?

We started to compose songs just after to be formed,8 tracks of "perpetual darkness" are taken from our two demos (First bleeding and Chaos of insanity).we began two months for recorded it at home .
we took our time to take the best tracks.






4.Who  usually  writes  the   lyrics  for the  songs  what  are  some  subjects you   all  write  about?

 Gwen and myself are writing the lyrics in general.Jow also wrote "Demonic Art".
Our lyrics often speak of human stupidity, the fear, the future and the disease.
we try to have different ideas about each composition



5.Bestial   Soul    self released  the  debut  cd  did  you  all  plan  on  self-releasing the cd  or  did you  look  for  a  label?Will  you  all  work  with  a  label  for   Bestial   Soul's  future  releases  or do you   prefer  to  work  alone?

We were in contact with a label but have preferred remained in self-production for our first album.
for the future nothing is yet defined,we'll see what holds for us.



6.Besides  the  debut  cd    "Perpetual  Darkness"   does  the  band  have   any  other  merchandise   available   for  the  readers? If  yes  where  can  the  readers  find your  release  and  merchandise?

8.Are  their   any  tours  or  shows   planned  for  2016? If  yes  where  are  some  places the  band  will  be  playing?

we work hard to find shows for 2016,especially in France. it's really hard to find place to organize
show in our region,but not despair and finish well by finding.
Currently no date has been set, unfortunately.




9.In  your  opinion  what  is the  best  and  worst  thing  about  the  underground  scene?  And   what  does  underground  metal   mean  to you?
The best thing for the underground, it is precisely to be able to help each band, webzine, label.
The underground is like a big family.the worst thing of the underground for me is that there are too
many bands evrywhere and it's very hard to get out of the mass today but we are made primarily of music by passion  for fun first.



10.Eddy   you  handle the  drums  for the  band  when  did you  become  interested  in  playing the drums?  Are  you  self taught  or  did you take  lessons  when  first  starting  out?

I started playing drums at 11 years old(1992).My father often took me to see shows of local hard rock band
and I was always fascinated by drummer.After my sister showed me the video of AC / DC "Live at Donington 91" and Chris Slade really inspired me to play the drums and ride my first band.
After I got my first kit and took a lesson for 3 years.




11.Who  are  some  of your   influences and favorite  drummers? Besides the  drums  do you  currently  play  any  other   instruments?

 when I started to play drums Chris Slade influenced me a lot.After I started listening to metal and a lot of the   drummers influenced me as Lars Ulrich, Igor Cavalera, Dave Lombardo, Vinnie Paul, Jürgen Reil (Ventor) .....
Then I listened to Death Metal and as drummer Gene Hoglan ,Sean Reinert, Dave Culross, Mike Smith, Flo Mournier, Pete Sandoval, George Kollias is greatly influenced me.
my favorite drummers remains, Igor cavalera, Gene Hoglan and George Kollias .
I play a little guitar, but it's been that I do not practice.



12.Bestial   Soul    comes   out  of   France's  thrash  metal  scene   what  is  your  opinion   of  France's   metal   scene?
The metal scene in France is really not bad with quite a good bands of Thrash , Death or Metal .
There are many metal festival in France are some really huge like "Hell fest" other more underground
like" MFest "there's something for everyone.
the problem in France as everywhere I think,is that the local shows are struggling to attract many people.
people have more difficulty going to underground shows.



13.Who   are  some  of your  all time  favorite  French  bands?  Are their  any  new  bands   you  feel  the  readers  should   watch  out  for?
early Massacra,Aggressor and Loudblast are my favorite French bands.In the new scene are also some very good bands like,Pleasure to kill,Arcania,Perversifier....





14.Besides    Bestial   Soul    are  any  of the  members   currently   working  with  other  bands   if  yes   please  tell  the  readers  a  little  about  them?

 No one in the band does another project.




15.Thank  you  for  taking  the  time  to  fill  this  interview  out  do  you   have  any  final  words  for the  readers?

Thank you Patrick for this great interview and you review .
the underground needs people like you that helps bands.
