Barren Altar--Entrenched In The Faults Of The Earth cd{Self-Released}
Coming out of California's blackend doom metal scene is Barren Altar with their debut full length.Entrenched In The Faults Of The Earth is four tracks and one very well performed and written instrumental.The vocals are a mix of low deep growls and some raspy black metal screechs that fit Barrent Altar's dense,slow doomish black metal style perfectly.The guitarist plays with a lot of skill and experience going from a very slow doomish guitar tone to a more mid paced pace.The guitarist even speeds up to a faster pace in some sections before going back to the slower and heavier guitars.The drumming is done with precision and skill going from a fast and frenzied  drum style to a more calm and slower  drum pace.If you are looking for a great debut that mixes black metal and doom together for a great sound  then be sure  to  pick up  Entrenched In The Faults Of The Earth  today.

Interview with Skinless done by Patrick posted up on 6-8-18

Interview with Skinless done by Patrick

1.Hello please introduce yourselves to the readers?
I Am Sherwood, the great Beardsman of the North, AKA Boozeman Montana.

2.Skinless was originally started in 1992 when did you first get the idea to start this band?
I actually joined the band a couple years after it was formed by Ryan Wade and Noah Carpenter, Noah’s vision was to be the heaviest band in the area, then it expanded to world-wide goals over time.

3.Who would you say are Skinless's biggest influences and how do you feel the bands music has changed over the years?
Biggest influences are definitely classic old school death metal, one nice thing is that I don’t think the band’s music has changed that much over the years. We are who we are and do what we do, that’s a good feeling for us and we aren’t looking to expand our musical horizons, just keep churning out what we churn out. Not that there aren’t personal challenges involved, we’re just not looking for mass appeal or acceptance.

4.I believe the band broke up in 2011 for a short time what led to you all stopping the band?
That was Noah’s decision, it wasn’t really a discussion.

5.Skinless was reformed in in 2013 what gave you the motivation to reform the band? And what is the bands current line up?
Just the desire to write brutal music and play brutal shows. We have all be friends for a long time and like being in the band.

6.Savagery is the bands newest release which will be released soon through Relapse.How long did it take to write the music for the new release?And does the whole band take part in the writing process or does one member usually write everything?
Noah is the main songwriter and always has been, the addition of Dave on guitar has added some other songwriting perspectives, so that’s been cool. I think with most bands, although there may be one main songwriter, it’s the group effort that solidifies the sound. SKINLESS has a sound and while it’s primarily Noah’s initial vision, things take a new life with everyone involved.

7.Who usually handles writing the lyrics and what are some subjects you all wrote about on Savagery?
I write most of the lyrics but am always open to input and on the past couple records Noah has provided some starting points that I’ve build upon lyrical

8. I know Skinless has played many shows over the years what have been some of the most memorable shows that Skinless has played? And who were some of your favorite bands to share the stage with?
Man, they’ve all been interesting. We get along with everyone and as long as we’re out playing music, having beer and being brutal, we are happy. This past Netherlands Deathfest was pretty awesome, we shared the venue with tons of great bands and tons of old friends, always fun!

9.Are their any tours or shows planned in support of the new release? If yes where will the band be playing? Are their any countries that Skinless has never played that you would like to tour one day?
We just played Iceland and that was awesome, we can check that off the list and hope to return soon! We are playing some badass shows in June with Ringworm, Churchburn and Outer Heaven, going to be killer ending up with a stop in our home area with Bob our drummers other band that hasn’t played in like 10 years, Disciples Of Berkowitz as well as Noah’s heavy metal band Armor Column.

10.Skinless comes out of the mighty New York death metal scene what is your opinion of New York's death metal scene over the decades?
It’s always been awesome and is extremely strong still. Nice place to call home!

11.Who are your all-time favorite New York bands? And are their any new bands you feel the readers should check out soon?
SUFFOCATION, IMMOLATION, INTERNAL BLEEDING! I’m not aware of any new NY death metal bands that are killing it, but I always have my ears open!

12.When not working on new music or band business what do you enjoy doing in your sparetime? I like to snowboard and hang out with my family.

13.Has Skinless ever made a music video for any of your songs over the years if yes which song?
Yes, please check it out here:
SKINLESS - Skull Session (Official Music Video) 'Savagery' is out now on CD/LP/Digital Order via Relapse Records Here: Digital Downloads & Streaming:
It totally sums up the band in 5 min!

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

Interview with Grimner done by Patrick posted up on 6-8-18

Interview with Ted guitarist for Grimner done by Patrick

1.Hello Ted how are things going in Sweden this week? Please introduce yourself to the readers?

Hey, everything is going quite well! The weather is unusually warm, takes a while getting used to, haha.
Well, I’m the guitarist, vocalist (growl mostly) and front man of Grimner. There's not too much to say as an introduction except for that, I guess, but hopefully that will suffice, haha!

2.Grimner was started in 2008 what gave you all the idea to start this band?Who would you say are Grimner's biggest influences?

It was Henry (drums) and I who started it all. We were in another band at the time, and wanted to do something connected to Norse mythology and Scandinavian history. This wasn’t very well received by the other guys in that band, and it wasn’t long before we split up, and Henry and I formed Grimner with some other members.

3.What is the current line up of Grimner?

As stated before, I play guitar and growl/sing, we have our newest member Martin Welcel on guitar and clean vocals, David Fransson on bass guitar, Johan Rydberg on flutes and various folk instruments, Kristoffer Kullberg on keyboards and Henry Persson on drums.

4.Vanadrottning is the bands third full length release how long did it take the band to write the music for the new release?

I write all the music before we all discuss possible tweaks and changes, and this time I think everything was completely finished right before we entered the studio, so I guess it took about one and a half year almost, with a lot of pauses in between writing sessions.

5.Who usually handles writing the lyrics for the music and what are some subjects written about on Vanadrottning?

Nowadays, Johan and I usually write the lyrics together, and it’s working really well, as we both have a lot of subjects we want to write about, so it’s usually not too hard to get things going. Vanadrottning is the most lyrically diverse album we’ve released so far, I think. For example, it touches upon old tales like the first war between the Norse gods, folklore and forest creatures, and even the vikings journey to the east, in their quest to become mercenaries and royal guards. We also wrote about Äger, god of the sea, who I personally feel is forgotten too often, since his kingdom is quite an interesting

6.Has Grimner played very many live shows over the years?What have been some of the bands most memorable shows over the years?
We’ve played live quite a lot, but this year we are touring more than ever, to celebrate our 10 years as a band. I think Ragnarök festival and Hörnerfest in Germany has to be the most memorable ones, the Germans always blow us away. But our recent show at Durbuy Rock Festival in Belgium was also insane, what a crazy crowd!

7.Are their any tours or shows planned this year in support of the new release?If yes where will the band be playing and who are some bands you will be touring with?

Yeah, we’ve done a lot of shows already this year, and in September we’re also going on tour for a month as co-headliners with Kalevala from Russia. We’re gonna play in a lot of countries during the tour, Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, just to name a few.

8.Has Grimner ever made a video for any of your songs?If you had the opportunity to make a video which song would you like to see made into a video?

Yeah, we have music videos for Eldhjärta and Mörkrets Hem from our previous album Frost Mot Eld, and also for En Fallen Jätte and Dödens Dans from Vanadrottning. I would personally also love to make a video for Freja Vakar or Vårt Blod, Våra Liv, but, can’t do ‘em all!

9.When not working on new music or band business what do you like to do in your free time?
I mostly relax with video games, drink some nice beer, read good books… I also like going for walks, since I have the forest pretty close to me, which I’m happy about. But music takes up most of my time, it is my greatest interest, after all.

10.Ted you handle the guitars for Grimner when did you first become interested in playing the guitars?Are you self taught or did you take lessons when first starting out?

I come from a pretty musical family, so my interest for music sprouted pretty early. I wanted to play the guitar for as long as I can remember, and I got my first electric one when I was 8 or 9. I taught myself for a while, but started taking lessons later.

11.Who would you say are your influences and favorite guitarists?Besides the guitars do you play any other instruments?

Jari Mäenpää from Wintersun is definitely a guitarist I look up to, and Mattias IA Eklundh from Freak Kitchen has also been a huge inspiration for many, many years. Not necessarily just as a guitarist, but as a musician who refuses to set any boundaries. I always like to try any instrument once, but I’m okay at some other string instruments like bass, tenor banjo and others. I’m okay at drums, but I wouldn’t hire me for a prestigious band, haha!

12.Besides working in Grimner do you or any of the members work in any other bands or solo projects?

I play in another band, King of Asgard, but as far as I know, no one else in the band has any other projects. Kristoffer has his record label Suicide Fox on the side though, but no other bands.

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

Be sure to check out Grimner and catch a show when we’re on the road, you won’t be disappointed! Thank you too for the interview, my pleasure!

Interview with Trenchant done by Patrick posted on 6-3-18

Interview with NRS vocalist and guitarist of Trenchant done by Patrick

1.Hello how is life in Texas going this week?

Texas heat is in full effect now. If you can survive playing or going to shows in that then you can survive most places.

2. When did you first discover metal music and who were some of the first bands you listened to? Who are some of your current favorite bands?

I’d heard bands like AC/DC and Motorhead as far back as 11 years old, but it wasn’t until hearing Slayer at age 14 that everything fell into place. I’ve had the new Ritualization album on repeat ever since it came out last year.

3.NRS you handle the guitars for the band when did you first become interested in playing the guitars? Are you self-taught or did you take lessons when first starting out?

I became interested in guitar not long after I discovered music. I was fascinated with replaying the songs I was hearing which served as motivation when first starting out. I took lessons for a bit early on which helped to understand putting “feel” into what’s being played. It was something at the time I didn’t enjoy but now it makes more sense, especially in solos. As for playing metal that was all self-taught. You reach a point where no one’s able to teach you anything regarding what you want to play so you set out on your own to learn it.

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

Jeff Hanneman is a constant influence. His playing is usually what I always go back to for inspiration. Other than that, Chuck Keller is always awesome to watch as he makes that style of playing look so easy.

5. Besides the guitars you handle the vocals when did you first become interested in growling and screaming? Do you do anything special to keep your voice and throat healthy? Who would you say are some of your favorite vocalists over the years?

I’d done backing vocals for several bands over the years but Trenchant is the first time I’m handling both guitar and fronting a band. I decided it was time to do both at the same time. I’d say Pete Helmkamp is the biggest influence on my vocal approach. Finding the right amount of clarity and aggression in vocals is important, otherwise the message gets muddied.

6. When did you first get the idea to start Trenchant and how did you choose Trenchant as the name of the band?
The idea had been floating around since 2015. It wasn’t until the middle of 2016 that the ideas started to become songs. I still didn’t have a name for the band until a conversation with TND where he stated a response I’d given was very trenchant. Trenchant means very incisive or sharp and it was perfect for what I was creating. It also goes one step further in looking like a portmanteau of the words Trench and Chant which is perfect for the bands style and lyrical concepts.

7. Who would you say are Trenchant's biggest influences?

Molested, Angelcorpse and Immortal are the main influences. I’ve heard other people’s interpretations or what they think it sounds like but those 3 are the ones I always go back to for inspiration.

8. Martial Chaos is the band’s debut EP. How long did it take the band to write the music for the debut? Does the whole band work on the music or does one member write everything?

Most of the material was written in late 2016 - early 2017. Most of it was written to a drum machine in the beginning. When we got GRA on board to do the drums the first practice I was afraid it was going to be too fast for him to play. He ended up playing the first song even faster than what was recorded! It was then we knew he was the perfect fit for what Trenchant is doing. Then it became a process of drilling the songs and ensuring all the parts were right. Nowadays I’ll write the skeleton of the song and we’ll all get together to work out some of the finer details in the structure.

9.NRS you handle the vocals so I assume you write the lyrics what are some topics you wrote about on the debut?

TND handles most of the lyrics while I usually supply the concepts. They mainly deal in war and the occult. Some a bit straightforward and some more subtle, it’s a good balance to have both.

10. Martial Chaos is a digital release. Are there any plans to release it on a physical format one day?

CDs will be out in the middle of June.

11. Does Trenchant play live very often or is this a studio only project? Are there any shows planned in the near future if yes where will the band be playing?

The debut show will be October 20th as part of the Texas Chainsaw fest. The Chasm is headlining with Acerus, Sacrocurse, Pious Levus and Remnants rounding out the bill.

12. Trenchant comes out of the Texas death metal scene. What are your thoughts on the death metal scene in Texas?
Houston is the main stronghold for death metal in Texas; they’ve got many of the old guard keeping the spirit alive in addition to newer bands reinforcing it. Dallas doesn’t have much in terms of death metal; they’re thrash and black metal. The same goes for San Antonio as well. Austin is a mixed bag with doom and sludge being what most people are into here. This results in a fair number of us going to Houston for shows.

13. Who are your all-time favorite bands coming out of Texas? Are there any new bands you feel the readers should check out soon?

There’s so many to choose from but for me it would have to be Absu, Imprecation and Necrovore. Each played a fundamental part in helping to shape metal for years to come and still play a big part in influencing bands today. I recommend listening to Oath of Cruelty as soon as possible as they’re Texas’s response to Angelcorpse. Maiestas from Dallas is also worth mentioning as they’ve been making a serious impact the last couple of years in addition to finishing up a full length sometime this year.

14. What does underground metal mean to you?

A rejection of a society that has lost its direction, an objection to the shackles of convention that would keep our internal flames guttering, if not extinguished. The underground is, at least traditionally, the final bastion of free will and thought.

15. Besides playing in Trenchant do you or any of the members currently play in any other bands if yes please tell the readers a little about them?

Were a band of veteran players who all play in two or more bands. TND is the bassist for Imprecation and GRA is the drummer for several bands such as Mortuary and Obeisance, his most notable band of late is Sacrocurse. I play guitar for Plutonian Shore from San Antonio and I’ll be doing live guitar for Trench Warfare this summer

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

Keep the flame alive.

Interview with Posthuman Abomination done by Patrick posted on 6-1-18

Interview  with Posthuman  Abomination  done  by Patrick

1.Hello how is life in Italy going this week? Please introduce yourself to the readers?
Lorenzo: Hi, I'm Lorenzo, vocals. This week in Italy? Well, it's better if we talk about music.
Max: I'm Max, guitars. 

2. Posthuman Abomination was started in 2014 when did you and the other members first get the idea to start this band? What is the current line up of the band?
Lorenzo: Me and Marco Coghe (Drums) always desired to play together and create a band of uncompromised Brutal Death Metal. We were in a sort of hiatus with our former bands (Natrium and Demons Bridge, Catastrophic Evolution), so we decided to ask Max Santarelli to join us. He was our first choice, since we think is one of the best guitar players in Italy, his style is unique and we are great fans of Vomit The Soul, Xenomorphic Contamination and other of his projects. We started to compose and record demos, using Internet because we live in very distant cities and we recorded our Promo "Crafting Life".
Later we recruited Andrea, former bassist of Natrium, very gifted and with a great attitude. When Marco joined Devangelic, Andrea and I were recording the last Natrium's album and Max was very busy with other projects, we needed to slow a bit down with the songwriting but in few months we make up for "lost" time and we finished and recorded the album

3.Who would you say are Posthuman Abomination's biggest influences?
Max: Suffocation, Deeds of flesh, Gorgasm and many more.

4.Transcending Embodiment is being released very soon through Comatose music when did you and the band first come in contact with this label?
Max: When we started to search for a label our first choice was Steve Green's Comatose Music, so we sent him our promo and some demo tracks of the album. He instantly liked our music and the negotiation was quick.

5.How long did it take the band to write the music for the debut release?Does the whole band take part in the writing process or does one member usually write everything?
Max: About two years of songwriting, in cooperation with Lorenzo. Then everyone worked on his parts individually.

6.Besides the upcoming debut release does the band have any other merchandise available for the readers to buy? If yes what is available and where can the readers buy it?
Max: Sure! CDs, T-Shirts, custom guitar picks, posters and stickers are available in our merchstores (, Soon we will be also on Spotify.

7.Has Posthuman Abomination played live very often or is this just a studio only band?
Max: We started as a long distance studio project but we are so confident about our music that we become ready to be a "real" band and to perform live. The distance is indeed a big issue but we are working to bring our music live. 

8.What have been some of the bands most memorable shows so far? And are their any tours or shows  planned in support of Transcending Embodiment?
Lorenzo: A real tour will be very difficult but not impossible.

9.In your opinion what is the best and worst thing about the underground scene these days?
Lorenzo: This question is complex and would need a very long answer, I don't want to bore our readers.

10.Besides playing in Posthuman Abomination do you or any of the members currently play in any other bands?
Max: Well I'm pretty busy! Pit of Toxic Slime, Precognitive Holocaust Annotations, Xenomorphic Contamination, Kabal, Marco plays in Devangelic and Interminable Corruption.

11.Posthuman Abomination comes out of Italy's brutal death metal scene what is your opinion of Italy's death metal scene over the years?
Lorenzo: When I was sixteen, one of the first bands that got me into Death Metal was a band called Electrocution, obviously Italian and they are still kicking ass. I think that Hour of Penance's Vile Conception helped pave the way for all the other Italian bands. A real breakthrough. Now in Italy there are a lot of Death Metal bands and the amazing thing is that it's difficult to find one that isn't great!
12.Who are your all-time favorite Italian brutal death metal bands? And are their any new bands you could recommend to the readers?
Max: Septycal Gorge, Putridity, Indecent Excision, Antropofagus, Demiurgon, Unbirth, Logic of Denial and many more.
Lorenzo: Hour Of Penance, Septycal Gorge, Putridity, Blasphemer, Unbirth, Demiurgon, just to name a few.

13.When you need to take a break from working on new music or band business what do you like to do in your free time?
Max: I like to go to the football stadium and to drink a lot
Lorenzo: Retrogaming mostly on Commodore Amiga, reading, movies and shows binge watching and drink... a lot.

14.Thank you for taking the time to fill this interview out do you have any final comments for the readers?
Max and Lorenzo: Thanks for the support, see you soon and stay brutal forever.

Interview with Postmortal done by Patrick posted on 5-26-18

Interview with Postmortal done by Patrick

1.Hello how are you doing this week?Please introduce yourself to the readers?
 Helo, here Michał, guitarist of Postmortal. I'm doing great this week, thanks. I played concert with my other band “Rites of Daath” in Wrocław this Friday (18.05.2018). It was great show!

2. Postmortal was started in 2016 what gave you all the idea to start this band? And how did you all choose Postmortal as the name of the band?
I remember the idea which appeared in our minds during 20th edition of Brutal Assault festival in Czech Republic in 2015. Almost all Postmortal first line-up were there but it changed just after this event . For a long time doom metal was my favorite metal subgenre. Moreover, we decided that more originally we will be playing funeral doom than create another black or death metal group. The band’s name was suggested by our first bassist “Sludge” (greetings for Sludge from this place) and other members agreed with this idea.

3.What is the current line up of the band? And who would you say are Postmortal's biggest influences?
Current line-up are: Me – guitar, Kamil – guitar, Dawid – vocal and Paweł – bass. Unfortunately, we don’t have a drummer at this moment. Answering for myself, I can say that main influences come from great doom bands like Thergothon, The funeral orchestra, Ahab, Evoken, Tyranny, My dying Bride, Paradise Lost and many others . But I also derive inspiration from other metal subgenres like post, death and black metal and even not from metal music.

4.Soil is the bands debut EP. which is being released through Solitude Prod. how did the band come in contact with this label?
When you play funeral doom it's really hard to find anybody who would be willing to release your stuff. There is no label that specializes in doom metal in Poland. Fortunately, in Russia there is Solitude Productions. I knew this label before and I like bands they released. I sent them our material, they like it, offered interesting conditions and we started to cooperate.

5.How long did it take the band to write the music for the debut release?
I really don’t know how long it took. Our music was creating systematically from the beginning. After some time we decided to chose 3 songs for Ep.

6.I believe Soil is a digital release are their plans to release the debut on a physical format soon? If yes when will it be availible?
Yes, we already released Soil on Cds by ourself. There is only 50 copies of it. Cds are available since 14th May and you can buy them through official store:

7Does Postmortal play live very often or do you prefer working in the studio?Who are some bands you have shared the stage with?
We played 2 gigs by now, and we really like them. We want to play more but we can’t do it without full line up. Regardless of that fact new records wouldn't delay.

8.Are their any shows or tours planned in support of the Soil release? If yes where will the band be playing and who are some bands you will be sharing the stage with?
As I mentioned above, we aren’t able to play concerts now. However, I hope we’ll find new drummer soon and we'll play some gigs.

9.Has the band ever thought of making a music video for any of the songs? If you had the opportunity which song would you like to see made into a video?
We haven’t thought about music video yet. Maybe in the future when new material will be released. But If I had to choose a song from Soil I would vote for Nighttime Serenity.

10. Postmortal comes out of Poland's death,doom metal scene what are your thoughts on the doom metal scene in Poland?
Doom metal scene in Poland still exist but it isn’t as strong as in 90s, when this genre has many great representatives. Anyway, we still have couple of very good bands.

11.Who are your all-time favorite polish death,doom bands and are their any new bands you feel the readers should check out soon?
think my favorite polish death doom band is Medebor, I like all their albums, especially “Phantasma”. I also like Sirrah which is unfortunately inactive right now and Mordor which recently released new album “Darkness” after 21 years of break! From among new bands I can recommend Dath has Spoken which plays really good doom metal with great riffs and many melancholic melodies, and Above Aurora which is more black than doom, but it’s great music also.

12.When not working on new music or band business what do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Watching Youtube, reading books, meet with friends, some sport, nothing special.

13.Besides playing in Postmortal do you or any of the members currently play in any other bands or solo projects?
Yes, me and other guitarist Kamil play in Rites of Daath, furthermore I also play in Schaderian.

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

Interview with Grim Fate done by Patrick posted on 5-26-18

Interview with Wim guitarist of Grim Fate done by Patrick

1.Hello Wim how are things going in The Netherlands this week? Could you please introduce yourself to the readers?

Hi, we are Grim Fate from the Netherlands and we enjoy ourselves with creating death metal with a doomy edge to it. We had some new items this week. First we heard that after some delays our mcd finally seems to be ready to be released by Chaos Records. And we just finished the recordings of a new track last night. We’re planning to have it released on a split 7”, but no futher news on that yet. Hopefully we can give more information about that later this year.

2.When did you first start listening to metal music and who were some of the first bands you listened to?

I started listening to metal somewhere in the late eighties I guess. The first bands I got to learn were Iron Maiden and Metallica and right after that Slayer, Death and Obituary. From that moment on I was totally into death metal and which is relevant today.

3.Wim you handle the guitars for the band. When did you become interested in playing guitar? Are you self taught or did you take lessons when first starting out?

From the first moment I was aware of music, I was alway intrigued by the guitarist of the band. To me music was always more about guitars than vocals. I never had any lessons, just trying out to get some nasty tones out of the guitar that made any sense. I am lightyears away from the talent some of my early guitar heroes have, but hey I’m enjoying myself and the nasty tones seem to appeal to some people at least.

4.Grim Fate was formed in 2017. What gave you all the idea to start this band? Who would you say are Grim Fate's biggest influences?

Grim Fate was started when my other band Burial Remains had some delays with recording. I always wanted to do some slower doomy death metal and I knew Pier is also in that kind of stuff and asked him if he wanted to the vocals. He never was in a band before, but wanted to give it a go and took care of the bass as well. His vocal performance is one of the best in this style of music, so we are really happy with that. I can't deny we are influenced by bands like Incantation, old Amorphis, Demigod and the likes, but it’s not that we want to copy that sound. We just play death metal and slow it down a bit.

5.What is the current line up of Grim Fate?
It’s still Pier and me, but we added Philippus - who helped us out on the mcd- as a permanent member. And I think that is how we want to keep it for now. We get along great and make some crushing death metal.

6.Emerging From The Crypt is the bands debut EP which will be released through Chaos Rec. When did you first come in contact with the label?

After we recorded Emerging From The Crypt we reached out to some labels. A bunch of them were interested and Chaos was totally into it and we went with them.

7.How long did it take to write the music for the debut EP?

Well this is the funny part. After Pier and I decided to do this we shared some ideas, but no real songs were written. Until the moment we got together and really started writing songs and in a matter of 6 weeks we had not just written 4 songs, but also recorded them. It was a really spontaneous way of working that I’ve never done before, but it worked out really well.

8.Who usually takes care of writing the lyrics for the band and what are some subjects you all wrote about on Emerging From The Crypt?

Pier does most of the lyrics and it's pretty much about the dark side of live. It death and decay all the way for us. The songs usually arise from some nasty riffs created by me. Together with Philippus we take an open approach and let the atmosphere of the song breath. The rest of the riffs will follow, and together with Pier we check if the balance is in order.

9.Besides the debut EP does the band have any other merchandise currently available for the readers to buy? If so, what is available and where can the readers buy it?

Currently the EP is on tape and this month it will be available on CD. Shirts are coming also, more information about will be released in June. Keep an eye on our facebook for news on that.

10.What does underground metal mean to you?

Me and Pier are following the underground scene for so many years now. It has been a been an interesting journey and still is. Every week I l'm suprised that I find new releases or even old releases that I haven't heard from earlier. The only way to keep this scene together is if we support each other.

11.Grim Fate origin is The Netherlands death metal scene. What is your opinion of the metal scene in The Netherlands?

It’s really funny that The Netherlands is such a small country and has som many great bands like Pestilence, Asphyx, Sinister, Polluted Inheritance, Sempiternal Deathreign and so on. And it’s cool to see most of these bands are still active.

12.Who are your all-time favorite bands coming from The Netherlands and are their any new bands you feel the readers should check out soon?

Pestilence, Asphyx, Deadhead, Creepmime and Poluted Inheritance are among my favourite bands from the Netherlands. When it comes to new bands people should definately check out Graceless, Incinerator and Rotten Casket.

13.Have you all started working on new music for the next EP or would you like to record a full length?

As I said earlier, a split we be part of our discography and we're pretty certain that a full length will be the next step. We keep busy writing new stuff all the time, so we hope to have a new releases done soon.

14.Besides Grim Fate do you or any of the members currently work in any other bands or projects?If yes please tell the readers a little about them?

We keep on writing with Grim Fate although we have to give other bands like Burial Remains and Boal the attention they deserve. Burial Remains is more old school Death metal and Boal takes a broader approach with more dark, brutal and atmosphere elements. Philippus also has Dimaeon as an other active band. That's more in the progmetal corner, they are also releasing a full length at the end of this year. And he is doing 7ft Beyond Belief, which is more in the vein of bands like Rotten Sound. I might end up doing some vocals on that release also.

15.When you need to take a break from writing music or band business what do you like to do in your free time?

Drink beer and worship Satan.

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

Support the scene anyway you can! If you like dark doomy Death metal maybe you can give Grim Fate a try. Thanks for reading anyway.

Interview with Katari done by Patrick posted on 5-23-18

1.Hails how are things going in Peru this week?
Dany I : Greetings comrade, at this point bit or nothing I'm interested what happens in this country, I almost do not see TV and if I turn-on it at will is to see the Simpsons or programs of my interest, I do not read magazines or newspapers because I know the kind of trash they sell us, just look at the headlines to yawn and scratch my head. Always the same strategy of misinforming and anesthetizing with mediocre shows and morbid. All psychologically and surgically designed by the government to continue drugging the repressed indignation of the people.
Much of this whole topics has always fueled the wrath of the serpent (KATARI).

2.When did you first start listening to metal and black metal in general?Who were the first bands you listened to?
Dany I : I started listening to metal thanks to my brothers and a cousin, who were moving inside the small scene of Huánuco and could get material and bring them home, even in diapers I only listened and analyzed them.The first bands I heard were the commercial type of heavy rock and punk like Kiss, Black Sabbath, Leuzemia (Peru), Metallica among many others (I have a somewhat fragile memory).
After a time and with a better trained ear, came the most grotesque and bestial bands like Sepultura, Death, Venom, Possessed, Mayhem, Blasphemy, Rotting Christ among others. They were all key pieces and in some way influenced my way of writing and structuring the music.

3.When did you first get the idea to start this band? And how did you choose Katari as the name of the band?
Dany I : After leaving a previous band, my brother (Assassin) and I decided to follow the path of Black Metal and create a more serious band, own themes and with their own essence to demonstrate the pure and gloomy art of Huánuco.
The name was an easy task, because we always wanted an atypical name, and using the language of our ancestors was the best idea, it was just a matter of finding the exact word that represents our sickly ideology and music, and in truth, KATARI has become synonymous of evil and bestiality.

4.I believe Katari is a two man band have you always worked as a duo or would you like to find new musicians to make Katari a full line up?
Dany I : At the beginning we had 2 support members in different short times. Zadek (bass) and Drácul (drums) with whom they were able to play live and make some rehearsal recordings, then in 2010 we had the support of "Miserable Jehovah" in the drums to show our art in other cities.
Normally we are a duo, but later we will be forced to recruit 2 or 3 members for future shows, something that is already being discussed.

5.If you had the opportunity to work with any musicians past or present who would you like to work with?
Dany I : I would like very much to have the support of those comrades again but I see it easier for the Pope to sign us a permission to play inside St. Peter's Basilica. We have lost contact with the first comrades and "Miserable Jehovah" is fully involved in his own band (Wisa Awqa).

6.Ave,Rex Ivdaeorvm! is Katari's debut release is now available how long did it take you two to write the music for the new release?
Dany I : This album brings themes of rehearsals and demos with the exception of : "Impaled On A Phallic Cross" , "Acid Venom" and the instrumental "Inclemency".
These themes that came from a valuable notebook where I record ideas and riffs for themes future, it was only a matter of taking them and finished during the trial and recording period, more or less between 2015 - 2017.

7.Who usually writes the lyrics for the music and what are some subjects written about on Ave,Rex Ivdaeorvm!?
Dany I : Mostly I write them, in some cases with the help of Assassin.
"Ave, Rex Ivdaeorvm!" It is the materialized blasphemy with its own life, look at the cover and in a few minutes you will begin to hear the laments of Christ (I assure you).
The lyrics deal with all this, total death and total rejection of the church. Each theme is a kick in the ass to "civilization" and the religious ego.

8.Besides the debut full length does the band have any past releases or other merchandise available for the readers to buy?
Dany I : Of course, we have more rehearsals and demos but for sale or trade ; "Darkening All" (reissue on cassette) and the EP "At Peace" (cassette) and of course the new album are still available, Any query for sale or trade just write to our emails.

9.Katari comes out of Peru's black metal scene what is your opinion of the black metal scene in peru?
Dany I : My opinion about Peruvian black metal scene, is that there is not one, but several independent micro scenes, which in my opinion is good, necessary and very respectable. I believe that Black Metal should continue to be characterized as such, proud, antagonistic and dangerous, this is what must be maintained because this position differs from other normal styles and normal people.

10.Who are your all-time favorite bands coming out of Peru and are their any new bands you feel the readers should check out soon?
Dany I : The rock scene of the 60's and 70's are a delicacy (I recommend it to you) bands like: Los Saicos, Tarkus or Pax. As for metal, always delighting the noise of the masters Mortem, Kranium, Illapa, Mortuary, Anal Vomit, Ayahuaira, Contumacy among many others.
And with respect to current bands, I recommend them to Obscure Evil, Nekromantik, Iniquitatem, Arcada etc.

11.Besides bands are their any honest,reliable labels and distro's you could recommend to the readers?
Dany I : I know very honest and engaged people in the topic , I'll name you there: Enrique Luna (Necro Altar Prods) Ricardo Lucas (Crypts of Eternity), Cinthia Marina (Into the Abyss Domains), Julio Crisostomo (Necronausea) Andrés Vargas ( Death Dealer) among others

12.What does black metal mean to you?
Dany I : Delicious question, but the answer will be reflected in a future theme entitled "Black Metal is the Cusp" I think it was enough with the title to say it all, but there is more, it is an apology to the true cult of Black Metal.

13.Besides working in Katari do either of you work with other bands or solo projects? If yes please tell the readers a little about them?
Dany I : Yes, I currently have 2 separate projects, one called HAYLLI and the other has no name, only represented by the mathematical infinity symbol "∞".
Both are experimental projects that have nothing to do with Black metal.
At the moment only with HAYLLI I have a rustic demo released last year, and with "∞" I have prepared a single for August of this year.

14.Thank you for taking the time to fill this interview out do you have any final comments for the readers?
Dany I .: Do not let down your guard , the war continues ... hails and thanks comrade.
