Interview with Ignominious done by Patrick posted on 8-13-17



Interview  with  Ignominious  done  by  Patrick



1.Hails  when  did you  first  get  the idea  to  form  this band?And  how  did you  choose  the name  Ignominious does it  have a special  meaning?

Hails! After some failed musical attempts I decided to take matters into my own hands and I got the idea to form Ignominious in winter of 2007. I always wanted a name that has negative meaning and not reserved by other bands. It's in English but it looks like a Latin word. Perfect for the band.


2.What is  the  current line up  of the  band and  who  would  you  say  are  the bands   biggest  influences?



We all are founding members the line up hasn't changed over the years. Mephyriz - bass / vocals, Netherial - guitars, Haermoth - guitars, Alastor - drums. The biggest influences of the band are 90's black metal albums. Without completness, Gorgoroth's first three albums, Obtained Enslavement's first, Taake's first, Those of the unlight and Opus nocturne from Marduk, demo of Strid and so on.


3.The Throne And The  Altar  is  being  released  through Hidden Marly Prod. how  did you  come  in  contact  with this  label?

When we were looking for label who release Death walks amongst mortals we made a list. That was in 2011. If I remember well, our drummer, Alastor found it on the internet. We asked Shota Oishi, the owner of the label to release our material and he agreed. That was the first time we came in contact with Hidden Marly Productions.


4.How  long  did  it take  the  band to  write the  music  for  The Throne And The  Altar?Does  the  whole  band  take  part in  the  writing  process or does  one  member  usually  write  everything?

The throne and the altar writing process took at least two years. I started to write the songs before the release of Death walks amongst mortals. The songs and the lyrics needed time to reach their final form. I'm the songwriter I have written every song.


5.Who   usually  takes  care  of  writing the lyrics and   what  are  some  subjects  you all wrote  about  on  the  new release?

I have written every lyrics. The main lyrical line is death and passing later on. The lyrical topics on our new album include the fall of royal and ecclesiastical power, too.


6.Besides  the  new  cd  coming  out  does the band  have  any of the  previous  releases  still  available  for purchase?Besides  physical releases is  their  any  other  merchandise  available if  yes  what  is  available and  where  can  the readers  buy  it?

Yes we have a lot of demo CDs at home and some of the Death walks amongst mortals album. We don't know how to sell them at the moment. We have a bandcamp page: https://ignominiousofficial.bandcamp.com/ . There you can download our two demos for free and you can listen or buy our albums in digital format.


7.Ignominious  comes out of  the  Hungarian black metal  scene  what  is your  opinion  of the  metal scene in  Hungary?

I have not followed the evolution of the Hungarian black metal scene for a long time so I don't have any opinion about it.


8.Who  are your  all-time  favorite  bands  coming out of  Hungary?And  are  their  any  new  bands you  feel  the  readers  should  check  out?

I don't have any favourite Hungarian band but I can recommend you some. Old thrash metal / proto black metal bands like Tormentor, Fantom, Antichrist, DetonĂ¡tor. A black metal band I like is Witchcraft. You should check them out. They have been active since 1996 and I played two shows with them between 2013 and 2014 as bass player.

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

The only reliable distro / label I know that you should check is Neverheard Distro.


10.What  does  black  metal  mean  to you?

Black metal has the perfect melodic world and atmosphere that assists me to express my views and feelings in musical way.


11.Besides  playing  in  Ignominious  do  you  or any  of the  members  currently work  with  any other  bands  or  solo  projects?

Only our drummer, Alastor plays in a goregrind band called Enema Shower.


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

Thank you for the opportunity! Keep the black art alive! Mephyriz / Ignominious - Heralds of passing since 2007.

Syn Ze Sase Tri done by Patrick on 8-13-17



Interview  with  Syn  Ze  Sase Tri   done  by  Patrick
1.Hello  please  introduce  yourself  to  the  readers?

Hello there! I am Corb guitarist and vocalist of the most bloody and powerful metal band from Transylvania-Romania. And not only! Haha

2. Syn  Ze  Sase Tri   was  formed  in  2007  when  did you  all  get the idea to  start this  band?And  how  did you  choose   Syn  Ze  Sase Tri   as the name of the  band  does it  have a  special  meaning?

Me and the first members of Syn Ze Sase Tri we had sung together before Syn Ze Sase Tri, in several bands approaching genres of extreme metal generally, bands that have influenced and led to the birth of this band. The name itself is inspired by a pre-Christian prayer dedicated to a deity, prayer carved on a gravestone which was discovered by archaeologists here in Romania, which translated would mean “I’m with triple six”.  This number, 666, being away from the occult meaning, in many cases in the pre-Christian mythology being assigned as the limit between the world of gods and men, a sacred number. The prayer itself was incorporated into the song “Ruga” (The Prayer) a song that ends our first album. The prayer became the perfect starting point for the whole concept of the band and the name gave the identity of who we are today as a band.



3.What  is  the  current  line-up  of  the  band  and who  would you  say  are the  bands  biggest  influences are?

On this album Syn Ze Sase Tri is:
Corb - vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, percussion, traditional instruments, synth and programables
Mos - electric guitars
Dor - drums
Suier - vocals

On this album we had an army of musicians which are playing in some of the greatests bands from Romania as guests, which I would like to mention with this occasion:

Ovidiu Ioncu "Kempes" (facebook.com/Kempes.Official)
Andy Ghost (facebook.com/altar.ro)
Robert Dohar 
Constantin "Castor" Lapusneanu (facebook.com/GODtheHorde)
Dudu Isabel (facebook.com/duduisabel
Andy Ionescu (facebook.com/taineband)
Aura Danciulescu (facebook.com/scarletaura)
Adrian "Geagea" Marias (facebook.com/marias.adrian)

Me as the composer and founder of the band, i was very moved by the conceptual music. The Wall of Pink Floyd, or the music of King Diamond, Avantasia or even better Scenes From A Memory of Dream Theater were my guiding point. I always wanted to make music which has a story. I like to listen to something that keeps me nailed to the music for the entire album, not just on some tracks. But of course other bands from extreme music such as Dimmu Borgir, Emperor or Cradle of Filth, had a big impact over me so from all those Syn Ze Sase Tri was born. I listen to anything that sends an emotion, that has something to say. Otherwise is a waste of energy and time.



4.The  band  is  signed  to  Code 666 Rec.  How  did you  all come  contact  with this  label?

In 2009 i joined Negura Bunget as full time member for 2 years, and in this time I got to knew Emi from Aural Music, and that was the moment when we started this collaboration which now is at the 4'th album and going on.


5.Zaul Mos  is  the band's  fourth  full length release  how  long  did  it  take  the  band to  write  the  music  for  this  release?

I started working on it at the end of 2015 and it took me until the end of the recordings in May 2017. It was a continuous process of creation and recordings.

6.Who  usually  handles  writing  the lyrics  for the  band and  what  are  some  subjects  you  wrote  about  on  Zaul Mos ?

I compose the music and the lyrics as well. For this album as for the previous 3 albums, the subjects are taken from the Romanian mythology, folklore and history. It is a fantasy, a fabulation, but it contains facts that have a deep foundation in our culture.



7.Does  Syn  Ze  Sase Tri    play  live  very  often  or do you  prefer to  work  in the  studio? What  have  been  some  of the  bands most memorable  shows  over the  years?

Yea, we like to play live as much as we can. It is hard to book shows nowadays because the industry is overwhelmed, but we try to get to as many shows as possible. 
 The best shows so far for us were the ones in which we opened for the biggest names in metal, such as Dimmu Borgir, Mayhem, Dark Funeral or Carach Angren. Why? Because at that level of organisation and the importance of the events, we had our chance to prove in the same conditions and to the same public that we are close to their level, a fact that the public shared with us, and was somehow our certitude that we are doing the right thing.

8.Are  there  any  tours  or  shows  planned  for  the new release? If  yes  where  will  the band be  playing?

In september we will have a european tour, THE ELDER GOD TOUR, which will be the first leg of the promotional tour of the new album, tour that will be continued in the spring and throughout the rest of the 2018.
You can see us live in september as follows:

16/09/2017 - Osijek, HR - Exit Club
17/09/2017 - Bjelovar, HR - Mario Pub
18/09/2017 - Wien, AT - Viper Room Club
19/09/2017 - Zurich, CH - Ebrietas Pub
20/09/2017 - Munich, DE - Garage Deluxe Club
21/09/2017 - Praha, CZ - Fatal Music Club
22/09/2017 - Bratislava, SK - Fuga Music Club
23/09/2017 - Poprad, SK - Rock Fabric Club
24/09/2017 - Kosice, SK - Colloseum 


9.Has   Syn  Ze  Sase Tri    ever  made  a  video  for  any of their songs? Are there  plans to  make one  for  any  of the songs off  the  new release? If you  could  which  song  would you  like to  see made into  a  video?

Sadly until now we did not manage to make any real music video, and we will not make one until we will be able to make a professional one. We have in plan to make one but it will take a lot of time, effort and money because it will be very cinematic. Something like our version of Lord Of The Rings. Haha. I hope that next year we will make it, and for sure you will hear about it too.


10.Besides  working  in  Syn  Ze  Sase Tri   do  any  of the  members  currently  work with  any other  bands or  solo  projects? If  yes  could you  please tell the readers  a  little  about  them?

Two of my band mates, the drummer and the lead singer are playing in some other bands like Malpraxis and An Theos, bands that are also very good and have their own identity and message. I cannot say much about their activity in those bands because i am focused on Syn Ze Sase Tri, but for sure i can recommend them to be listened. Check them out!


11. Syn  Ze  Sase Tri   comes  out  of  Romania's  black metal  scene  what  is your  opinion  of  the  Romanian  metal  scene?

I have a very good opinion. We have here a lot of good bands, take your time and search for Trooper, Bucovina, Gothic, Target, Kempes, Altar, Seven, God the barbarian horde, Alin Moise, Taine, Awake, Scarlet Aura, Transsylvania Phoenix, L.O.S.T., Malpraxis, Necrovile, Clitgore, E-an-na, Cargo, Resita Rocks, An Theos, Ashaena, and those are just a few that comes to my mind right now.


12.Who  are  your  all-time  favorite  bands coming out  of  Romania? And  are their  any  new  bands  you  feel  the  readers  should  check  out  soon?

All the bands i mentioned above. I strongly recomend them!


13.Besides  working on new  music or  band  business  what  do you  like to  do  in your  spare  time?

I love riding motorcycles, horse riding, carving, painting, working with leather and organic materials, nature, reading, anything that can give me a state of relaxation but in the same time to give me the opportunity to become much better as human. The good thing is that many of these things help me a lot with the band. So it combines the use with the pleasure.


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

Listen to our music and you will find out other great musicians who joined us on this album, buy our CD's, come to our gigs, and support our band. But don't forget to do this with all the bands. Without you, we cannot exist. Without us you have nothing to listen to. So try to support the metal scene as much as you can. Not just the big bands. Once they were like us.

Interview with Hatemoon done by Patrick posted on 8-12-17



Interview  with   Hatemoon   done  by  Patrick



1.Hello   please  introduce  yourselves  to the  readers? When  did you  two  first  meet?

Tohmar:  We are Tohmar and Tuathail (ancient Norse spellings of our respective surnames).  Both of us got involved in black metal in the early 2000's around the birth of "suicidal black metal" (later called "DSBM") and each had a solo project in this style.  We got in contact because our bands were signed to a label from Texas called Desastrious Records and were scheduled to be on a scheduled 4 way split to be released by the label.  Unfortunately, the split never saw the light of day, but throughou it we became longtime allies.  


2.Was  it  long  before you  two  decide to form Hate Moon? How  did you  choose Hate Moon as the name of the band?

Tohmar:  Tuathail had been working on Hate Moon as a solo project, but in 2008 he invited me to perform vocals on our first demo.  We were very happy with the results and decided to continue collaborating on music at sporadic intervals (busy with other music and non music duties throughout the time).

Tuathail: As for the name Hate Moon, it was just something I came up with at the time of the first demo and it wasn't a solid name for the band but we decided it was a name we both liked anyway. 
3. Hate Moon   is  a  two  man  band would  you  like to  add more  musicians to make a  full line-up  or do you  prefer to  work as a two  piece?

Tohmar:  Things have been very efficient as they are and thus I'd be hesitant to make any changes.  It would be cumbersome to rely on any additional parties that would likely have little to offer in playing instruments that we are perfectly capable of playing ourselves.


4.The  Imprisoning War  is  the bands new  release which  will be  released  through  Folkvangr,  how  did you  all come  in  contact  with this  label?


Tohmar:  I am a good friend of Itay Karen of the band "Afar."  He sent me a copy of the tape that was released via Folkvangr and I really liked the presentation.  I did some research on the label and believed that they would be a good fit for Hate Moon.  Since this all came together just as we had completed the album I decided to reach out and see if they were interested in this release.


5.How  long  did it  take  to  write  the music for  this  release? Do  you  both  work on  the  music or does one member  usually  write  everything?


Tuathail: For this release, The Imprisoning War, I wrote all the music. But this does not mean that I will be the one solely writing all the music for the project in the future. The length of time that took me to write this album was probably around a week or so. I can't really remember since the album  was written some time back ago.
6.Who   usually  takes  care  of  writing  the  lyrics  for the  band  and  what  are  some  subjects  you  wrote  about  on  The  Imprisoning War ?

Tohmar:  I wrote all of the lyrics and was inspired by stories of the Norse Gales after a family member had traced our family back to Tomrair, an ancient Nordic viking king of Dublin.  I had always been interested in ancient nordic romanticism in art, music, movies ect.  Video games were also a major influence- specifically the Legend of Zelda series (from which the title of the album was lifted) and the Elder Scrolls series.  I didn't publish the lyrics because I feel they can limit one's interpretation of the music- for example, the listener may want to appropriate the music to the theme of a fantasy novel they are reading while they listen.


7.Besides  the  new  release  does the band  have  any  other  releases  or merchandise available  for the readers? If yes what  is  available  and  where can the  readers  buy  it?


Tohmar:  This will be the first public release made by the band.  We had traded our demos amongst friends via  burned CDs but have never pressed any official material.  There are no plans for any merch at this time.

Tuathail: We do hope to put out our demos at some point though. 


8.What  does  black  metal  mean to  you?


Tuathail: Black Metal is an art and a form of expression to me, personally. Overall I do think it is the sound of darkness and evil but I also think it can have a positive message too. It is the genre of music I became to adore since it feels like the music comes from one's soul or to tell a story. 
Tohmar:  It's the dark side of European music and culture that many seem to be strangely attracted to/afflicted with.  Along with darkness and extremism it is also tradition, identity, courage, challenge and struggle.  To me it's the musical equivalent of the joy I've found in video games, movies, and literature that portray villianess and authoritative characters in an exciting fashion.  
9.Besides  working in  Hate Moon  do either  of the  members  currently  work with  any other  bands  or  projects?If  yes  please  tell the  readers  a  little  about them?

Tohmar:  Yes- although I reserve the "Tohmar" pseudonym for Hate Moon alone.  I'm excited to announce that I will be reviving my ambitious solo project "Wall of Water" and will be starting up a new band called "Deus Vult."  In Wall of Water, I explore a contemporary/experimental metal path and Deus Vult will be reviving the most traditional of underground metal sounds. I aim to release an album with each band in 2018 and use both to promote my Christian views.

Tuathail: The only project I am in as of now is my band "Thy Vast Despair". This project was started in 2005 and also the project that lead me to meet Tohmar. I haven't released much under the name of Thy Vast Despair but I have been writing music for years for the project. I am in the process now of recording an album for the project and planning on putting out some unreleased material that was recorded in the passed. There were other bands I was in and the reason I put Thy Vast Despair on the side. Unfortunately these bands never lasted but the music that was recorded for these projects I hope to still release at some time. To be more personal, working with Tohmar on Hate Moon has been the only successful project I worked on with another person and it still will be successful.
10.Hate Moon  comes out of the Pennsylvanian   black metal  scene  what  is your  opinion  of the  scene  in  Pennsylvania these  days?

Tuathail: There isn't much of a scene here. Like Tohmar said, there are a lot of crust punks or just punk fans in general that are in this "scene". But overall here in the area of Pennsylvania where I reside it is more of a fad of is popular. A few years ago and probably still true now, it was popular to overly obsessed with 80s "black metal" or "death metal" bands that released only one demo. By this I mean they would get shirts made of the this forgotten band and lamely attempt to dress "80s metal". I guess you can say the Pennsylvanian metal scene is a joke really which is a shame but I hope one day it will flourish again.

Tohmar:  Although the band is based in Pennsylvania, I know little about what's happening there as I grew up in New Jersey and currently reside in Brooklyn.  I've never cared much for PA bands as most of the musicians involved are crust punks with whom I have little in common.


11.Who  are your  all-time  favorite  bands  coming out  of Pennsylvania? Are their  any  new  bands you  feel  the  readers  should  check  out  soon?


Tuathail: I always really liked the Doom Metal band In Ruins from Pennsylvania and also Death Metal band Incantation. Also there are the classic Black Metal bands from Pennsylvania like Blood Storm and Crucifier. But personally I also always like the projects of my old friends, Everwinter/Plague. Very great projects till the one member died which ended the projects and Plague was going to be on the 4 way split with Tohmar and I mentioned earlier. The only newer band I like is Haethen but I think they are actually from New Jersey but they played a bulk of shows here in Pennsylvania and I think one point resided here. As far as other bands, they are usually junk and just worshipping (mimicking) classic bands. Then you have a bands like Woe that are fucking horrible and terribly uncreative. It seems like a common theme for newer bands here to make a mockery of Black Metal. 
12.When  not  working on  new music or  band  business  what  do you  like to do in your  free  time?

Tohmar:    I enjoy the pursuit of knowledge especially in regards to history, political theory, philosophy, faith, and culture.  I avoid movies, enjoy (mostly older) video games, and spend much of my personal time with family, friends, and community.  Lately I have been doing freelance writing for political/cultural publications and plan to do more of this in the future.

Tuathail:  I enjoy art, both create it and go to museums, I like hiking through the forests or watching movies when I am not writing music. Writing music is a big hobby of mine really. 


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

Tohmar:  Tradition, heritage, family, culture, nature, faith, community, and collectivism are immensely important to the happiness and mental health of the individual.  I cannot stress this enough.  Thanks again for your time Patrick, its always a pleasure to a part of Winter Torment.

Tuathail: Only thing I have to say to the readers is stay true to yourself. I would also like to you thank you as well Patrick for your time and interviewing us. I hope to hear again from Winter Torment in the future.

1.Hello   please  introduce yourselves  to  the  readers?At  what  age  did you  first  discover  metal  music?

JT- Josh, vocals and guitar. I was 8 or 9 years old.

2.Who  were  some  of the  first  bands you  listened  to and  who  are  some  of your  current  favorite  bands?

JT- For me it all started with Iron Maiden. After that I discovered bands like King Diamond and Danzig, and from there it was a pretty swift progression to death metal. Current favorites are Grave, Asphyx, Edge of Sanity, Dismember and pretty much anything from Dark Descent records.


3.When  did you  first  meet  the  other  members of the  band and  was it  long  before you all formed  Winds  Of Leng ?How  did you  all choose   Winds  Of Leng   as the name  of the  band  and does it  have  a  special  meaning?


JT- The three founding members of the band met by playing together in a band immediately before Winds. After going through a few other members we found the third member of our current lineup. I came up with the name, but I honestly don't remember the exact moment. Nothing too special as far as meaning, we thought it fit us and the subject matter/mood the band often goes for.

4.What  is  the  current  line-up  of  the  band?Who  would  you  say  are  the  bands  biggest  influences?

JT- Two of the founding members remain, Myself and DZ(drums, guitar, bass). Also AS(guitar, bass). Speaking for myself, the biggest influences for this band are the bands I mentioned above along with some black metal like Early Naglfar, Emperor, and Darkthrone.

5.Horrid  Dominion  is  the  bands  debut  release  how  long  did  it take the band to  write the  music for  the debut  release?

The bulk of the music was written in a few months time, but due to the band learning the recording process and recording it themselves the music was tweaked a little over time and the lyrics were written over a much lengthier period of time.

6.Who  usually  takes  care  of  writing  the  lyrics  for the  music  and  what  are  some  subjects  you  wrote  about  on  Horrid  Dominion ?
JT- I wrote all the lyrics for this one except for a little help from a friend on "Audrey". The themes on the album are all horror related and the album consists of songs inspired by some of our favorite books and films, and some of my own creations.

7.I  believe  Horrid  Dominion  is  a  digital  release  where  can  the readers  buy the  release?And are their  any  plans  to do  a physical  release  soon?

JT- Right now it is only digital. It is available on Bandcamp and most big online outlets. Yes there are plans for physical, First a limited Cassette run from Metalstrom Records and the band is working on a cd version.

8.Winds  Of Leng   come  out  Arizona's  black,death metal  scene  what  is your  opinion  of  the scene  in  Arizona?

JT- There's a lot of bands out there and a decent amount of shows. I think there's a lot of exciting stuff coming from AZ right now.

9.Who  are your  all-time  favorite bands  coming  out  of  Arizona  and  are  their  any  new  bands  you  feel  the  readers  should  watch  out  for  soon?

JT- Can't say I have any personal all time favorites from AZ but again there has been a lot of good stuff here over the years. I know Deadspawn has something new in the works and that should be killer!

10.Does  Winds  Of Leng    play  live  very  often  or  do you  prefer  to  work in  the  studio?Who  are  some  bands you  have  had the opportunity  to  share  the  stage  with?

JT- To date we have not played live but we just got a new rehearsal space and soon will be looking for people to round out the live lineup.

11.Are  their  any tours  or  shows  planned  in  support  of the  debut  release?If  yes  where  wil  the  band  be  playing?

JT- Nothing yet, but that would be awesome.

12.What   does  underground  metal  mean  to  you  all?

JT- Speaking for myself it is almost way of life, I've lived and breathed this stuff for many years and there's not much else I want to do. I think it is a highpoint of musical passion.

13.Besides  working  in  Winds  Of Leng   do  any  of the  members  currently  work in  any  other bands or  solo  projects?
JT- Currently no.

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


JT- Thanks for the interview and thanks to anyone who took the time to read and who takes time to listen. More to come!
