Interview with Jay Parker owner of Masters Of Kaos Prod. posted on 6-10-22

 



1,Hails Jay how are things going with you this week? Please introduce yourself to the readers? 

Hails patrick, thanks man.. things are great this end thanks .. My name is Jay, I'm co-owner at Masters Of Kaos with my good friend and brother in arms Carlo Quiceno, and I am also Vocalist and guitarist in The Witch, a Bogota based BM band.


2.When did you first discover black and death metal and who were the first bands to catch your attention?Who are some of the current bands that you have been listening to?

I was tape trader in UK when I was a kid and I suppose it must've been 1990 when I heard Celtic Frost, Bathory, Blasphemy and early Emperor and Samael.. gradually teh scene grew and more great bands appeared.... Current bands?? Angrboda's Curse, Winter's Breath, Amock, Bál, Hand Of Flauros, Valadier, Perventor, Amock, Chovu too many to mention... right now as I'm writing this I'm listening to a split by Evilfeast and Uuntar


3.Jay you own and operate the black metal label Masters Of Kaos Prod. when did you first get the idea to start a label?Are you satisfied with how things have gone with the label so far?

Carlo and I started the label last year in October, basically to release music from our band The Witch.. ... Gradually things kinda snowballed, and more bands came on board and liked the idea and what we were doing.... We are absoulutey gobsmacked and humbled by the response we have had from bands from all over the world.


4..What do you feel is the easiest and hardest part about running a label?Do you have any friends or contacts who help you with the label?

Carlo helps, and one of the girls from the witch, Star Ruby also helps with promotion... the hardest part?? Remebering stuff hahaha I am a wee bit forgetful.


5.What are your current releases that are availible for the readers to purchase?What are some of the upcoming releases that the readers should look out for

We have so many... we recently released Perventor(colombia) In abhorrence of Light, Angrboda's Curse(PR), Amock(PR) NIohoggr(PR) Osy Mainty (madagascar) and the classis EP by Ofermod(sweden)mysterion tes anomias...Check out our page...https://mastersofkaos.bandcamp.com/ for june we have a 10"white vinyl ep, the mirror gate from Perventor, Winters breath(austria), Valadier(italy), both deput eps... and some killer split albums between colombian/puerto rican bands and austrian and hungarian bands...



6.How many hours a day would you say you work on label business?

at least 6, often more


7.What styles of metal do you carry in your distro?Do you do many trades or do you prefer to buy wholesale?

Black metal, Death metal, Grind.... we do do some trades yes, and we've had some great stock in as a result, although trades are usually for our personal collections.... We don't buy from other labels, we release our own Cds/Vinyls/Tapes... and we don't do wholesale, just limited editions.. no mass production haha we do maximum 100 copies, often less , to make our releases special and collectable.... I find that mass produced music loses it's prestige and covetability.... In my opinion anyway.. I'm sure many would disagree...


8.If their are any labels or distro's reading this what styles besides black metal do you carry in your distro?Where can the labels get in touch with you about possible trades?

On Facebook, Masters Of Kaos or Jaypkazazel777@gmail.com


9.What does Black metal mean to you?

Solace, escape, a harmony between the mad moments in this ever maddening world. and passion.


10.When you need to take a break from working on label business what do you enjoy doing in your free time?

Im usually writing or recording... I?m also involved with archaeology projects here in Colombia, so it's nice to get away in the mountains and disconnect and explore.


11.Jay you live in Colombia South America what is your opinion of the black death metal scene in Colombia over the years?

The scene here is one of the best and most varied on Earth and I would strongly recommend the readers to ccheck out not just Colombian abnds, but BM from latin america in general


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

Esbbat is the staple legendary band here that has been consistantly good and never sold out...Old school and underground.. The guys from Esbbat play in many other bands and are always there to help support new bands on the scene, as they did with my band The Witch... New bands?? In abundance in COlombia.. Oreb zarak, Perventor, Cancerlumnia, Terror Satan, Tapias De Pilatos was recently reborn too, great band...


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

Osy Mainty interview done by Jay Posted on 6-8-22

  Here is a new interview that was  submitted by a friend of mine who should be  sending more interviews in the future.                                                                                                                                 Patrick                                     


Hi this is Jay reporting from Bogota Colombia..

Today I'm lucky enough to be talking to Osy Mainty from Madagascar.

A fast-rising star with a growing following, this is definitely a band for the future..

Ca va mon ami! Thanks for talking to our readers..

1 Tell us about Osy Mainty.. when/where/why was the band formed?

I created the project in 2010 here in Antananarivo. Back to the days, I was dreaming about a live band but several troubles pushed me to make it a 1 man project. Before Osy Mainty I had many other projects that were mostly into core but nothing serious or great. I think the bands that actualy made me love bm were Dimmu Borgir and Dark Funeral but my passion for depressing stuff is a kinda natural


2 Describe your music in 5 words

This is just my past

3 I've been fortunate to have a preview of the forthcoming album Born Within Disgrace...I can say it is mindblowing.. original..terrifying...groundbreaking.... run us through the album tracks and tell our readers where they can buy it...

Ok so 1st fitia poizina is the malagasy for poison-love. It's a musical summary of my love stories (the kind of story that make you wanna die) i used 4 languages for the lyrics (malagasy, french, english and japanese) My bro also played the lead guitars on it

2nd resy or defeated. The last minutes of somebody who comited suicide (in music)

3rd satana mpanjaka mahery or great king satan. Anti-religious and anti-constitutional track.( I was baned coz of it)

4 hanaraka anao or following you (into the grave) is the story of somebody who wana die coz they lost the 1 they loved the most

5 flashing lights is a sorta late party that will be forgoten the following day (but few images remained)

6th coromax is at the same time a sensibilization for protection against covid 19 and a modest requiem for the victims

7th Suicidal obsession... Do I really have to explain?

8th Born withing disgrace is more in the field of rejection or being rejected. Disability, ugliness, loneliness, self-destruction, adiction, uselessness...

The album is available at Masters Of Kaos Productions. Support the underground. Hail metaleros...¥m/...


4 what inspires the lyrical content in your tracks?

It's obvious. Also depends on music. Sometimes, lyrics come first. Most of my lyrics come from real emotions but I also try to talk about something else in order to make it less narcisictic.


5 what inspired you to become a Black Metal musician?

I don't know much. I just love it


6 What are your plans for the future? I understand you have more material to come?

Yeah some material first especialy internet conexion. Them maybe trying to find a scene for Osy Mainty and for what might bm become here. Depends on the public. My job is done.


7 tell us about your best and worst experiences as a Black Metal musician..                                               

my Accident was the worst (but maybe it's just my mind) and still waiting for the best.


8 tell us about the scene there in Madagascar...Recommend some bands for our readers..

Seth, dark'inside, samara, azazael... We have plenty of good band here but the public is modal.


9 what is your favourite all time BM album and why?

Hard to say. The band who made me dream the most must be dimmu borgir but I also love so many other bands IF I HAD TO CHOOSE...In sorte diaboli, spiritual black dimension...


10 what is your opinion on the evolution of BM over the years and where do you think it will go in the future?

No one can actualy predict tomorow but according to what we're living today I'd say atmospheric say will take a huge dimension. Same for electronic or virtual music but it will probably take more time.


11 What modern bands do you listen to?

Violet cold, deadspace...


12 What words of wisdom would you give to any up and coming bands / musicians?

Ego kills talent and 2 are better than 1


13 Would you like to add anything for our readers?

Thx a lot for supporting metal... Hail

Merci beaucoup, Osy Mainty!!! 666                                                                                                             Band Contacts                                                                                                                                               https://www.facebook.com/Osy-Mainty-Official-107969957766049/                                                         Label  Contacts                                                                                                                                             https://theblackwitch056.wixsite.com/mastersofkaos/shop                                                                          https://mastersofkaos.bandcamp.com/                                                                                                         https://www.facebook.com/Masters-Of-Kaos-Productions-103153375679760                                           https://www.facebook.com/Masters-Of-Kaos-Productions-103153375679760

Interview with Angrbodas Curse done on 5-28-22

 





1. Hails Angra how are things going with you these days? Please introduce yourself to the readers?

Hails to all, my name is Angra and my band is Angrbodas Curse (Black Metal) formed in Puerto Rico in 2015 and now based in New York. And so far things are going very well, thank you so much.


2. When did you first discover Black Metal and who were the first bands that caught your attention? Who are some of the current bands that have caught your attention?

I think I was maybe 16 years of age when I did, and the bands that caught my attention were Hate and 1349, after that I kept discovering more and more brutal bands.

And right now, I have to start with a local black metal band from Puerto Rico called, Necronomic, it is a one man band made by Hell Ruler. The music, the lyrics and the raw talent are absolutely outstanding and I’m honestly so proud of how far he has come. Another band has to be Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult which will always be my favorite band and influence, so yes it always has my attention.


3. When did you first become interested in writing and performing music?

I’ve actually  been writing music for years, Though I had never really recorded or performed any of my music until I decided to start Angrbodas Curse.


4. Who are some musicians that you would consider influences?

Onielar from Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult and Angela Gossow ex vocalist of Arch Enemy, they are not my only but definitely my top 2 for sure.



5. Angra when did you first get the idea to start Angrbodas Curse and are you satisfied with how things have progressed with the band so far? How did you choose Angrbodas Curse as the band name and does it have a special meaning?

It was 2015 when I decided to start the band, though the official name was chosen in 2016, the way I chose the name was thru reading the sagas and reading about Loki, that’s when I found out she use to be Loki’s first wife and bearer of his children, I decided to research and read more about Angrboða and I was truly fascinated. That’s how it became truly meaningful to me, not only do I have so much respect for Angrboða (She is a jötunn in Norse mythology) but I also feel somehow identified with her saga, it personally empowers me.

And yes I’m absolutely satisfied with how far we’ve come, to me it has all happened in perfect timing and the growth Memphist and I have done as musicians has been truly great.


6. I believe the band is a two person band would you like to add more musicians to do some live shows one day or do you prefer to work in the studio?

Yes, right now it is only Memphist and I, but I would definitely love to add a few more in order to do live shows, something I’m looking forward to do in the near future.


7. Necromantic Grimoire is the debut release how long did it take to write the music for the debut release? How long does it usually take to complete one song?

I believe it took me about two years to write the music for the whole EP. When it comes to writing and completing a song it usually takes me about a month depending on the muse that I feel at the time.


8. Where do you draw inspiration for the lyrics and what are some subjects written about on Necromantic Grimoire?

I’m inspired by female pagan deities especially Angrboða of course, Norse mythology and real live events.

Now on the EP I did focus a song called “Blessing of the Ironwood” fully on Angrboða though I do try to make her presence known on most of my songs. Other subjects are witchcraft, absolute rebellion and embracing the Goddes/God within.


9. Besides the debut Necromantic Grimoire does the band have any other merchandise currently available for the readers to purchase? If yes what is available and where can the readers purchase it?

Yes, you can get some merch and can also get the physical copy of Necromantic Grimoire, through Plague Demon Records, Masters of Chaos, Blasphemous Creations of Hell and Vipers Den, also through the Angrbodas Curse Bandcamp page, where you will find a link on our bio. To our Linktree page and you will be able to find all the pages to buy the CD and merch.


10. What does Black Metal mean to you?

It means that I get to express myself in the most creative and rawest way I can with no limits. To me it is more than just the corpse paint and dressing a certain way, personally it goes way deeper than that, it is somehow very intimate for everybody, giving that every person has a different opinion of to what it means to them. Black metal whether I’m singing/writing it or become the listener it is an escape and comfort for me through its dark lyrics and atmosphere.


11. Besides working with Angrbodas Curse do you currently work with any other bands or solo projects? If yes please tell the readers a little about them?

Not at the moment.


12. Have you started working on new music for the next EP or would you like to do a full length? Any idea when you might be releasing new music?

Absolutely, I am currently working on what would be my first full length album, it will be titled “I am King” and I’m trying to at least have 8 to 10 tracks on it. Unfortunately at the moment I do not have a release date but we are working as hard as we can to be able to release it this year 2022.

And there will be a single as well coming out very soon titled “The Sacred offering” and few more surprises on the way.


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?

I love spending time with my wonderful son and fiancé, reading is a must for me, I like to draw/paint as well, and of course I enjoy listening to music a lot.


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

I would like to thank you very much for the opportunity to do this interview and also I just want to say how thankful I am for all the support and help I’ve gotten from these amazing labels, Plague Demon Records, Masters of Kaos, Blasphemous Creations of Hell and Vipers Den, I wish them all the most success and I’m truly fortunate to be a part of their family.                                                                          Band  Contacts                                                                                                                                               https://angrbodascurseofficial.bandcamp.com/                                                                                             https://www.facebook.com/angrbodascurse                                                                                                 https://www.instagram.com/angrbodascurse_official/                                                                                 Plague Demon  Records                                                                                                                               https://plaguedemonrecords.storenvy.com/                                                                                                  https://plaguedemonrecords.bandcamp.com/                                                                                               https://www.facebook.com/Plaguedemonrecords.net                                                                                   Masters Of Kaos Productions                                                                                                                       https://mastersofkaos.bandcamp.com/music                                                                                                 https://www.facebook.com/Masters-Of-Kaos-Productions-103153375679760                                           https://masters-of-kaos.creator-spring.com/                                                                                                 Blasphemous Creations  Of Hell Rec.                                                                                                          https://bchrecords.storenvy.com/                                                                                                                 https://blasphemouscreationsofhellrecords1.bandcamp.com/                                                                      https://www.facebook.com/blasphemouscreationsofhellrecords/
