Weverin Interview


1. Can you tell us a little bit about the band for those that have never heard of you before?
 
First off, I'd like to thank you for the interview. Weverin plays a form of Blackened Death Metal. We have been in existence for over nine years, releasing numerous Lps and Eps. We are kult minus the shit production, not that shit production is bad as our previous efforts had horrible production values. But, with " The Skeletons of Fallen Angels", I (Harp, guitarist for the band) decided it was time to record at a proper studio, which was Backrooms studio located in New Jersey.

2. How would you describe your musical sound?
Black metal is the heart and soul of our music with a hint of Death Metal. We've been described in the past as early Mayhem or Tormentor with a modern production value and I can't argue with that.
 
 
3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
All of our lyrics are written exclusively by our vocalist Buer and are based on Satanic themes.

4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?
To be honest with you, Buer came up with the name Weverin. All I know is that the name has something to do with Dungeons and Dragons, which is gay but, I thought the name was cool so we went with that.

5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?
We've only played one show in all the years we've played together. It was last November in Los Angeles and it went over well.

6. Do you have any touring plans for the future?
Hopefully, I would jump at that chance. The problem with us touring is getting together to do it. I live in New York, Buer lives in Florida and Matt lives in California. So, getting together to record is big enough of a challenge. 

7. Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label and if so what kind of label do you feel that would be a perfect fit for your music and also what happened with your old label War Flaaggelton Records?
War Flagellation was a one record deal with our previous release "Serpents Light". It was a cassette release on their end. We are currently unsigned and would entertain offers from anyone who would be interested in releasing our music. Im interested in any label that would help Weverin expand its audience without interferring in our creative process and overall vision, which is spreading the Satanic gospel.

8. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your new album by fans of black and death metal?
As far as feedback from fans; we dwell in the ultra underground with very little press or acknowledgement. We have no press kits, management, tour management or, money. So like all bands in our situation we have to work to get our stuff reviewed and seen by the public. All of the reviews have been positive and constructive for "Skeletons Of Fallen Angels" which is nice.
9. What is going on with the other musical projects these days?
 
Matt is going into the studio with his other band Valdur soon to record their next studio release. They have a song posted on bandcamp which is killer so check it outhttp://valdur.bandcamp.com/track/conjuring-the-fire-plagues . They are awesome, so support the USBM scene.
 
Buer is currently recording the next Gorlock release entitled Suicide Erotic. They have a video for one of the songs on youtube
 
As for me, I'm writing the songs at a snails pace for the new weverin Ep. After Matt gets done with his Valdur stuff and I start making more money we will get together and bang out the music sometime hopefully by the end of this year or early next year.

10. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
Any direction that keeps hipster fags ears away from our music. 

11. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
King Diamond is my all time favorite fucking band by far. His first five releases and fuck, even No Presents for Christmas rules.
Death was also a big influence. Spiritual Healing and Symbolic are some of the best death metal ever produced.
Mayhems De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas and Emperors Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk blew my fuckin mind.
Finally, I've always enjoyed Overkill, Under the Influence is a Thrash classic.
 
Nowdays I listen to mostly Black Metal but I get my Grindcore,Thrash,Death fixes in as well.
Check out; Orlog, Hell United, Masachist, Adorior,Der Weg Einer Freiheit, there's just too many to put on here but these bands are all killer.

12. How would you describe your views on Satanism and Occultism?
Satanism is to me, absolute freedom. An uncompromisable path that an individual seeks out to live his or her life, the way he or she feels fit.
Conformity is the enemy of true Satanism.Occultism is a tool used to reach the Satan that lies within oneself.
 
13. Outside of music what are some of your interests?
Politics.

14. Any final words and thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
 Support the true U.S.B.M. scene and Fuck the Black Metal Hipster FUCKS that have infected it.
Thank you once again for the interview.
