Erevos Aenaon Interview

1. Can you give us a brief history of the band?

Well, we started as a band in 2001,playing black metal,rehearsing and exploring ways to express our message through black metal music.We had our first live 3 years later,when we were satisfied with what we created. We did not hurry to perform a live show nor a recording.The line up is mostly the same now as it was when we begun.

2. How would you describe your sound to someone who has never heard you before?

We try to express a cold and fatalistic feeling,using influences of Greek black metal when we want to create a gloom atmosphere and Norwegian influences for the more offensive parts. I believe that every band has a unique sound that makes it distinctive,so,its old school black,those interested may check us out.

3. What is the meaning behind the bands name?

The ideological part of the band is the most important,its name should give the viewer a clue to the ideological identity of ours. We believe that everything that exists,has to end.And that end is permanent. We are anti-religious nihilists,and we spread a message. That only nonexistence is eternal. The absence of existence is understood from human feeble perception as darkness and death. Erevos is an ancient Greek term that means vast darkness. According to the occultist Orpheus the world was created out of chaos and erevos.(erevos was considered the quintessence of darkness,and it fathered "nyx" the night). Aenaon is ancient Greek for eternal,but also expresses endless motion. These two words combined mean that only darkness,and therefore nonexistence is eternal.

4. How would you describe your live shows?

With corpse paint or not,with fire breathings or not,we just do what it feels natural to do when performing.We focus to one thing though,to feel and truly express what we play. We see our live shows as a way to present our ideological beliefs and mostly we want those present to feel the cold and anti-life emotions we want them to feel when listening to us. I believe that we have achieved that.

5. Have you recieved any label interest yet?

No.Our fist goal is to record a proper demo first.We are not pleased with our previous recordings.

6. What direction do you see the band heading into during the future?

We ll be around for a long time,and we ll keep it underground.

7. What are your main influences music wise or non music wise?

Our non-music wise influences are the occult and philosophy. Among with science they are the best weapons we can use to overthrow the dogma and religion. I would like to make it clear though that we are NOT a pagan band.Ancient Greece does inspire us,but not in the matter of religious beliefs.

8. What are you listening ti nowadays and what are some good bands or releases that you would recommend?

Apart from the old good stuff,I would recommend ravencult, an uprising band with a true black metal sound.I would also recommend another band called sad. True black and true underground band.I'd also recommend maphorion,no hand path,athos,exetheris and goat phallus.

9. What rule does Satanism or Occultism play in the music and life?

We regard satanism as a form of religion. And religious satanists are just the other side of the christian religion,and we are not very fond of christians.But we can find common ground concerning the anti-human,anti-life and anti christian sentiments. Occult is of great importance in ones life and music.It makes intelligent people think,wonder and search for answers,and it also makes retarded people to fear and stay away from matters that are not of their concern. Black metal is the expression of occult beliefs in matters of music.

10. What are some good books or films that you would recommend?

The Hymns of Orpheus,The philosophy of Heracletus,the cosmic theories of Democritus,Plato's myth of the cave and the De occulta philosophia libri tres of Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa.

11. How would you compare the Greek Pantheon to other systems such as Nordic,Roman, or Celtic?Those pagan religions share some similarities,the most basic of those is the lack of dogma.Every one was free to understand his religion his own way,there were no heretics and outcast beliefs in ancient religions.That is their basic difference form the thee Zion oriented religions.Those pagan religions worship the elemental forces and phenomena translating them to myths and deities.

12. Any final words?

The only thing that the man is sure of is his own existence,and nothing further.Our senses are feeble and incomplete,we are more than blind to the reality that surrounds us. You spend your life knowing nothing,and then you die. So,you must reject any religious belief,and focus on the needs of your own will.That will make you different,that will make you a wolf among the sheep.

13. Thanks for the interview?

Thank you for giving us a chance to make our beliefs wider known. Hails.
