Here  is  a  second  interview  this  time  it  is  with  the  mighty  Chilean  band   Diabolic  Messiah.The band  recently  re-released  their  debut  cd  on  Vinyl  from  the   great  label  Blood Harvest  if  you  are  an  old-school  maniac  who enjoys  death  metal  then  do  yourself  a  favor  and  get  this  today!!  

Interview   with  Caesar   vocalist,and Bassist  for   Diabolical  Messiah    done   by   Patrick

1.Hello    Caesar  how  are  things  going  in   Chile? Please  introduce  yourself  to  the  readers?

 Hi there! We’re Diabolical Messiah from Rancagua, Chile. The band was formed in 1999 and we play death metal. The definite line up dates back from 2001. That year, Miguel Perez (Herodes) left the band and nowadays Diabolical Messiah are Rodrigo Marmolejo "Pilatvs"(Drums), Pablo Ñanculao "Carcelero" (Guitars) and César Díaz "Caesar" (Bass and vocals)

2.Caesar   you   started   Diabolical  Messiah     in  1999.When  did  you  get  the   idea  to  form  Diabolical  Messiah ?

 In 1998, I came back to Rancagua after living a year in another city. In that year I started thinking about forming a band so I talked to Herodes and he said “yes, sure!” I had the name of the band in my mind so we just needed to start writing and rehearsing our musical ideas.

3.Diabolical  Messiah    is  getting  ready  to  Re-release  their  debut  "Satan  Totten Demon  Victory"  through  Blood  Harvest  Records.How did  you  all  come in  contact  with  the  label?

 We started the contact with Blood Harvest Rec. for the 12" Satan Tottendemon Victory!!! a couple of years ago. Proselitysm Rec. helped with that. However, the latter didn’t have much time for negotiations. We had to write more material for Proselitysm but we wanted to sign for Bood Harvest so we negotiated the cover design with Proselitysm and followed the contact directly with Blood Harvest by ourselves.

4. How  long  did  it take  to  write  the  music for "Satan  Totten Demon  Victory"?Does  the  whole  band  work  on  the  music  or  does  one  member  usually  write  everything?

 Satan Tottendemon Victory!!! tracks took about two years as we needed a record level to be interested in our material. Musically speaking, all of us work in the creation of tracks; however, I write all the lyrics although I show the songs to the rest of the band members before the final version.

5.Diabolical  Messiah    formed  back  in  1999  how  would  you  say the  music  has  changed  over  the  years? 

We’ve kept our music style through the years. We play fast drums and heavy guitars. Live sound has changed because of the technology; that means we sound better than before.

6.Does   Diabolical  Messiah     have  any  shows  or  tours  coming  up  that  the  readers  should  watch  out for or  do  you  prefer to  be  in  the  studio?

 We’re doing both things. We have some shows in the near future in different cities of my country and we’re also working on the material for the new album. Probably, we’ll be playing in Europe next year.

7.Who   are  some  bands  you   all  have  shared  the  stage  with over the years ? Has  the  band  ever  gotten to  play  outside  of  Chile?

 This year we’ve been playing with a lot of Chilean bands (Cancerbero, Pulverized, Hail Caligula, Totten Korps, Orategod, Gravestone, Wrathprayer, Praise the Flame, and so on) We also played in U.S.A. with bands like Sacrocurse (Mexico), Wrathprayer, Pseudogod (Russia), Morgengrau (Austin), Hellfire Deathcult (Chicago) and Funebrarum (New York)

8.Diabolical  Messiah    come's  out of  the  Chilean metal  scene  what  is  your   opinion  of  Chile's  metal  scene?

Nowadays, the Chilean metal  scene is pretty big. There’re a lot of bands, record labels, producers, zine and so on.

9.Who  are  your  all-time  favorite  bands  from  Chile? Are  their  any  new  bands you   feel  the  readers   should   check  out  soon?

 I guess "The King of Hell Reclaims his Throne" by Totten Korps is the best Chilean material ever written but it’s just my opinion although a lot of bangers think it is. I can also mention old bands like Cancerbero, Atomic Aggressor (demos), Sadism (demos), Scrotum Death (r.i.p.) They wrote great material as well. Nowadays, there’re a lot of bands in Chile but not all of them are good. I suggest you to listen to Demonic Rage, Godless, Wrathprayer, Unaussprechlichen Kulten, Slauhgbbath for example.

10.Are  you  or  any of  the  members  of   Diabolical  Messiah    currently  working  with  other  bands  or solo projects?

 No, we don’t. We are only focused on Diabolical Messiah. We have time consuming jobs so we don’t have enough time for another band.

11.Caesar  you   handle   the  vocals  for  the  band. When  did  you   first  start  singing/growling?

  Before forming Diabolical Messiah, when I was 14, I played guitars and sang in friend-group bands. I just played the guitar. In Diabolical Messiah’s early days I was the guitar player. We never found a good singer so I took the place and changed the guitar for the bass.

12.Who  are  some  of  your   influence's/favorite  vocalist? Do  you  do  anything  special  to  keep  your   voice  healthy  when  recording  or  preparing  for  a  show?

 I don’t have a favorite singer or front man. I think a band is a complement that is drums, guitars, bass and vocals. But I can mention Ross Dolan, Pete Helmkamp, Alex Camargo, David Vincent and Peter Tägtgren.

13.In  your   opinion   what  does  the   term  "Underground  metal  mean  to  you?

 I think and believe metal underground lacks of distribution by the media (sometimes by band’s choice) Nowadays, it’s very difficult to staying away from the mainstream and big audiences.

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

 Thank you very much for your support. Listen to our material and get ready for the new album which will be recorded very soon… Sicarius Satan, Kill the Gods!!

Interview with Innsmouth done by Patrick on 10-19-14

Here  is  a   new  interview  done  with  Denmark's "Innsmouth"   with  their   debut  cd   "The  Shadow Over   Innsmouth" through  Crime  Records  a  defintly  good  and  varied  release  with  some  technical death metal  thrash  and  anything  else   they  want  to  combine  a  good  release  and  worth  checking  out  if  your  a  fan  of tech death metal  with  some  thrashy  influences.
Metal  Regards

Interview with Thor Sejersen guitars for Innsmouth done by Patrick

1.Greetings  Thor  when  did  you  first  become  interested  in  playing  the  guitars?Are  you  self taught  or  did  you  take  lessons  when  first   starting  out?

Hello there.
I listened to Heavy Metal bands such as Metallica, Manowar and Alice Cooper when i was a kid, and then kinda forgot about it for several years. Then when i was around 14 years old, I rediscovered it all. I started listening to Metal all the time and became really interested in learning how to play the guitar. It was the song ”One”  by Metallica that made me decide that i wanted to give it a try. I remember having no clue as to how they made music like that but I found it incredibly fascinating. The fast solo toward the end of ”One” totally blew me away, and i knew i had to learn how to play like that! I took lessons for the first two years learning all the basic stuff. After that i started learning from instructional videos by great players such as Vinnie Moore, Marty Friedman, Michael Angelo Batio, John Petrucci etc. I also took lessons in music theory throughout high school.

2.Who  are  some  of  your  biggest  influences/favorite  guitarist?Do  you  currently  play  any  other  instruments?

Here are a couple of my favorite players from the top of my head: Paul Gilbert, George Bellas, Kiko Loureiro, Raphael Bittencourt, Michael Lee Firkins, Mattias Eklundh, Todd Duane, Herman Li, Sam Totman, Buckethead, Karl Logan, Andy Timmons, Vinnie Moore, Marty Friedman, Michael Angelo Batio, John Petrucci, Michael Romeo, Shawn Lane etc.
I can play the bass decently, but I dont consider myself a bassist.

3.Thor  when  did  you  first  meet  the  other  members  of  Innsmouth? How  did  you  all  come  up  with  the name  of  the  band?

We met each other in our teenage years through mutual friends. We shared a common interest in Heavy Metal music, so we became friends and stayed in contact. Throughout the years we have played in various bands in the danish underground metal scene, occasionally in the same bands. Back in 2006, Kim (vocals) and I had an idea of starting a Black Metal band. For various reasons, this band wasn't formed until december 2012. We then convinced Martin (bass) to join us. When we started writing the songs, we gradually changed our style into Death Metal. The name ”Innsmouth” comes from the H.P. Lovecraft novel ”The Shadow over Innsmouth”. We are inspired a great deal by his writings, and this is reflected in the lyrics. So we ended up using ”Innsmouth” as our bandname since it relates to our lyrics, and because we went for a Lovecraftian mood in our lyrics.

4. Innsmouth   is  getting  ready  to  release  their  debut  cd  "The  Shadow Over   Innsmouth" through  Crime records.How  long  did  it  take  the  band  to  write  the  music  for  the  songs?

I had written rough forms of three of the songs back in 2010. I presented them to the other guys and they liked them. I then reworked those songs and made the song structures better. This process as well as writing the other five songs on the album took four months.

5.Does  the  whole  band   work  on  the  music  or  does  one or  two  members  usually  write everything?For  the  readers  who  have  never  heard   Innsmouth's  music  how  would  you  describe  the  sound?

Usually I write the songs and most of the material. Martin and Kim contribute music and lyrics, and then I try to shape songs out of their input or incorporate it into the songs that I am writing. All in all, the final structure of each song is something that I take care off, even though the other guys can at anytime say if they want something to be changed.
I would describe our sound as surprising, unique, disturbing, eerie, impressive, brutal and unpredictable. If you like metal with lots of twists and turns, then you will like us.

6.Who   usually  writes  the  lyrics  for  the   band where  do  you  all  draw  inspiration  for  them?

I write the majority of the lyrics. I find inspiration in the writings of authors such as H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe and Stephen King. I also find inspiration in various movies, mostly horror movies. I keep a document where i write down all the cool words and themes that I come across. I then later incorporate stuff from this document in the lyrics that I write. Kim also contributes lyrics. He sends me his lyrics online, I look at what he writes and then I try to figure out where his lyrics will fit.

7.Does   Innsmouth   play  "live"  very  often  or  do  you  prefer  to  work  in  the  studio?Who   are  some  bands   Innsmouth   have  shared   the  stage  with?

Innsmouth haven't played live yet. We did however use to play live in other bands when we were younger. We have all shared the stage with a great danish band called 100 Knives Inside that sadly disbanded. Kim's former band shared stage with bands such as Mercenary, Bibleblack and Pretty Maids.

8.Are  their  any  tours/shows  coming  up  for  the  new  release  "The  Shadow Over   Innsmouth"? If  yes  where  are  some  countries/places  the  band  will  be  playing? If  you  could  set  up  a   dream tour  who  are  some  bands{past  or  present} you  would  like  to  share   the  stage  with?

Innsmouth will not be playing live anytime soon. The initial idea of the band was to write, record and release great music. This remains our plan as for now. We are already in the writing process for our next album.
Some bands that I would like to share stage with would be bands like: Manowar, Metallica, Megadeth, Dream Theater, Children of Bodom, Cannibal Corpse, Rhapsody of Fire and many others!

9.Innsmouth   comes  out  of  the  Denmark  metal  scene  what  is  your   opinion  of  Denmark's  metal  scene?

The Danish Metal Scene is somewhat diverse. There are all kinds of bands representing various sub-genres. So whatever sub-genre you are into, you can usually find some bands playing that particular style.

10.Who  are  some  of  your  all time  favorite  bands  from   Denmark? Are  their  any  new  bands   you  feel   the  readers  should  check  out?

My all time favorite band from Denmark is ”Beyond Twilight”. The band is usually considered danish despite only having two danish members. This is probably due to the fact that the mastermind and composer behind the band, Finn Zierler is a dane. They only released three albums before disbanding, which is a shame, but those three albums means a lot to me, and are totally unique.
King Diamond have also made a multitude of great albums with amazing guitar shredding on all of them! My favorite King Diamond albums would probably be ”Abigail” and ”Them”.

11.What  does  the  term  Underground  Metal   mean  to  you?

To me, Underground Metal is a term describing metal bands and musicians that aren't getting exposed to the masses.

12.Thor  are   you  or  any of  the  members  of   Innsmouth    currently  working  with  side bands  or  projects?

I am working on my solo project. It is gonna be in the style of the 80´s style shred metal. I released a demo consisting of four tracks in this style back in 2010, and now I am working on a full length album.

13.When  not  working  on  band  music  or  business  what  do  you  enjoy   doing  in  your    spare  time?

I usually spend time with my girlfriend, practice guitar, listen to music, read books or watch movies.

14.Well  we  have  reached  the   end  of  the  interview  thank  you  for  taking  the  time  to fill  this  out  do  you   have  any  final  words  for  the  readers?

It has been my pleasure answering your questions. I would like to thank everyone who have supported us, everyone who buys our album, and everyone who supports music in general by buying albums instead of downloading them illegall

Interview with Black Cult done by Patrick on 10-11-14

Here  is  a   new  interview   with  Black   Cult   from  Croatia   who  play  a  great  style  of  black  metal.The  bands  debut   cd   "Neo-Satanism"  through  Black  Plague  Rec. and the  Russian label
"Satanath records"  so  you  should  be  able  to  get  a  copy  from  one  of  these  great  labels.

Interview  with  Morbid  vocalist   of Black Cult   done  by   Patrick

1.Hails Morbid  how  is  life  going for  you  in Croatia? When  did  you  first  discover  metal  music?

Hails Patrick!
I'm doing just fine down here.I first discovered metal in my primary school, when I was about six years old.
First bands to meet my ears were W.A.S.P., Iron maiden, Guns N' Roses and Ac/Dc. I remember it like it was yesterday. Those were my favourites back then.

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

Like mentioned above, those few bands opened my doors of perception for the rock and heavy music.
Later I had a grunge phase, then some gothic doom, and later on a death and black metal era so to say.
I still listen to most of my best bands from each era. Nowadays I still listen some bands that I've started with,
but mostly I like to discover new music and bands. Not necessarily only metal.
I mostly listen to underground music at the moment. When it comes to black metal and extreme metal in general
I think that the new Behemoth, Deathstars and Dark fortress are amazing, passionate and honest albums which is a rare  thing nowadays in the metal music scene.
When it comes to more underground bands I listen a lot to Djevel and Tortorum.
Aside all of that, Combichrist and Hank III is what I might force in my car often.

3.Black  Cult  started  out  as a  two man  band  with  yourself and Insanus  how   long  did  you  stay a   two man  band?

The idea was to keep it a two men band but since we started having plans for live appearances we needed   the whole band.
Not long after finishing with the album mix we decided to call upon few individuals that we thought would  get into what we wanted to present with our music.
The full line up was formed in early 2014 and that's when we started with our first live shows too.

4.When  did  you  guys  decide  to  add  more  members to  Black Cult? What  is  the  current  line-up  of  the   band?  For  the  readers  who have  never  heard  Black Cult   how
would  you  describe  the  bands  music?

Like I said already above we decided to add more members so that we can perform our music live as well.
The current line up is the one and only original line up so far. Consisting of the most prominent names from  the croatian black metal underground scene.
We play true black metal with all it's best influences how we think it should sound and appear nowadays.

5. Black Cult   has  released  their  debut  cd   "Neo-Satanism"  through  Black Plague Records.
How  did you come  in  contact  in  contact  with  Mike and  Black Plague Records?

We released "Neo-Satanism" for Black Plague records/Metallic media, but also for the Russian label
"Satanath records" so it was a co-release for three labels.
We came in contact over email, they really liked the material and decided to put it out.

6.How  long  did  it  take to  write  the  music for  the  new  cd?
Does the  whole  band  work  on  the  music  or does one or two  members  write  everything?

Insanus did all the music, mix, mastering and I wrote the lyrics and did all the vocals.
Saathaen, our lead guitarist laid down the solo part on "Damned souls Imperium".
Insanus had all these ideas and riffs that he recorded over a couple of years.
Once he decided to record the album we did it one by one in less than a year.

7.Who  usually  writes  the  lyrics  for  the  band? Where  do  you  all draw  inspiration  for  the  lyrics?
I write all the lyrics.
The inspiration comes from many sources. Mostly personal philosophy, experiences and studies.
On "Neo-Satanism" it was in general about pure misanthropy and Luciferian philosophy.
It was a fundamental statement of the early black metal so we wanted to keep it real and old school
when it comes to lyrics too.  

8.Does   Black Cult   play  "live"  very often or  do  you  prefer to  work  in  the  studio?
Who  are  some bands  you  have  shared  the  stage  with?

We prefer both, but when it comes to live appearances we choose the place and time.
If one of those two terms does not fit to us we won't be doing it.
We are not a band that will show up at every given opportunity.  We are also not a touring band.
We played only with local underground bands so far and are very supportive of the underground scene in   general so we don't have ambitions to share the stage with more popular bands.
We like to do our own live ritual and have things under control.

9.Are  their  any  shows or  tours  coming  up? If  yes  where  will you  all be   playing?

So far we have a few Croatian dates confirmed again, but we are working on some dates outside our homeland too.
Keep an eye on our offical web pages if you want to be updated.

10.What  does black  metal  mean  to  you?

It's pure magic and one of the best musical expressions ever.

11.Morbid  you  handle  the  vocals  for  the  band  when  did  you  first  become  interested in 
singing/screaming? Do  you  do  anything  special  to  keep  your  throat/voice  healthy?

When I was 15 years old I had my first band where I played a bass guitar.
Some years later me and Insanus formed my other band "Gorthaur's Wrath". I've been into it for a very long time.
I do some Zen of screaming warm ups before the shows or rehearsals. It helps a lot to keep the voice strong   during the longer period of time.
Other than that I don't do much at the moment other than usual rehearsal, the more often the better.
It's like with any other kind of exercises.

12.Who   are  some  of  your  influences/favorite  singers?  Do  you  currently  play  any  other  instruments?

From the early days it was Dead (Mayhem/Morbid) and Legion (Marduk). Nowadays there are many but I always keep to my
roots.   Sometimes bass or rhythm guitar but not much. I mostly try to cover some old Misfits songs for my own pleasure.

13.Morbid are  you  or  any of  the  members  of  Black Cult   currently  working  with  side-bands 
or  solo  projects? If  yes   please  tell the  readers  about  them?

We all have "original" bands or side projects, yes.
Insanus played in Castrum, Unholy Inquisition, Svitogor, Hibernum, Ashes you leave and Gorthaur's Wrath.
My original band is Gorthaur's Wrath, I also played bass in Unholy Inquisition, BlackDivision and had another black   metal side project back in the days called "Mysterium".
Saathaen comes from Ashes you leave and was also involved in Heathen Mysticism.
Azaghal (the rhythm guitarist) played in Unholy Inquisition, Hibernum and Gorthaur's Wrath.
Lesovik (the bass player) was in Nekrist, Gorthaur's Wrath, Voloh and is still in Kult Perunov.
You can dig up some of those bands, I think you would find them interesting.

14. Black Cult     comes   out  of   Croatia's black  metal  scene  what  is  your   opinion  of 
Croatia's  metal  scene?

The scene is really big and there are lot of bands but also a very big fan base for all genres of metal.
The clubs are growing lately, so the promotion is there as well.
Still if you wanna grow really big you gotta go out and try to play as many EU shows as possible.
The band can not survive only in Croatia, as it's such a small country and unfortunately metal is not so popular in the mass media
like in some scandinavian countries for example.
I'm not saying we have to be on national tv, but some label, radio or magazine support would be highly appreciated.
Unfortunately it's not significant enough, so we have to do it all by ourselves but it works that way.
It did for all those years.

15.Who  are  your  all-time  favorite   Croatian  bands? 
Are  their  any  new  bands you   feel  the  readers   should  check  out?

There are not so many Croatian bands that I could call all-time, but let's say "Castrum" and "Death of folk"
could be the ones from the metal scene for me.
You should definitely check out Kryn, good friends and a really great band. Not black metal but still really strong  and original music.

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

Thank you Patrick for the interview and your support!
Check out Black cult's debut album "Neo-Satanism" and keep the flames burning!!!
