Veligore Interview

 1. Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days? Right now we are recording our second album and getting feedback on the first one. We're really enjoyed of the reaction to the first record and trying to put in more music our next one, even more then we put before. We're writing lyrics and composing guitar riffs. This process is totally natural for us, just like breathing. New impressions give the birth to new lyrics and music. New songs change the point of view. And everything is moving. 2. How would you describe the musical sound of the new album? On the one hand - we wanted to create the maximum of heavy sound (right now we're playing in the key of B tuning). On the other hand, we wanted to have a full concept with straight lines of all instruments. We don't really wanted to go away into the noise when it's not necessary and not a part of our plans. As a result, heavy, dirty, but musically justified. 3. The song lyrics cover a lot of occult and ritualistic topics, how would you describe your views on Occultism? Music is the one of manifestations of magic. The wire is vibrating, the magnetic field is changing, people are hearing a cry or scream. Our vision of the modern world is more medieval than the vision of others. We're believe that demons and other creatures are more powerful than other people think they are. A lot of things are happening near to us, but no one can see it, 'cause everyone is looking in any other direction. People are too confident about their well-being and safety. What if everything is not like you normally think it is (well, like you were taught to think) in your school/church/family? If you're not ready to see the occult, then you'll go crazy because of the abyss that will have opened for you. That abyss will be open for sure even though you don't want it to open. The Occultism is not a dogma. It just guides us in right direction. 4. I know that the band name came from Slavic Mythology, what is it that interested you about this deity to name a band after him? Slavic Mythology is totally different than Western mythology because the Orthodox church did not allow citizens to explore the depths of Satan or hidden knowledge. Thereby Slavic demonology is less hurt by church ideology than Western or Catholic demonology. According to the legend, Veligore was the teacher of Satanael (later - Satan). He convinced him to left Heaven and Satan came to hate god and his creatures - people. In other words, according to this legend, Veligore is the reason of everything, the root of evil. That’s why we’re so interested in this person. 5. I have read the band has yet to do a live show, do you have any shows lined up for the future and what do you plan on bringing out performance wise in a live setting? Right now we are busy recording. But in the future we are planing performances in right places and with the right people. We will keep our fans tuned in and we will stay in touch. 6. Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or received any interest? We would like to release our albums on some label with distribution that could help to bring our music and our ideas to those people who need them and interested. That way we can have a feedback through the part of alchemical process of musical creation. If we don’t receive the feedback then this circle isn't complete and energy won’t become action. In this case, the label and distribution are really important. That's all because of emanations from the fans to the creator. 7.The new album came out on a physical cd, what are your thoughts on the newer bands that only release music through a digital format? The physical cd is important as an artifact and physical incarnation of the idea. Essence of substance - is a miracle of sound recording. Online releases are not an alternative to physical publishing. They are good for familiarization, or promoting. But that's only our point of view, of course. 8. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal? We're satisfied by the effect. We were able to made our ideas clear and understandable. The number of our listeners are growing without any special promotion. This is not our target, this is just a symptom. We’ll keep doing what we're doing anyway. 9. What is going on with the other musical projects these days? Everything goes. We aren't focus on our previous projects yet. It's time for something new. Old things are in the background. 10. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases? We want to keep experimenting with our sound. And of course with the expression of our ideas. Because that was the reason why we are doing it! We don't know exactly who we can become tomorrow. 11.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays? We're listening many different music with many genres. Black metal, doom, ritual music. Coven, Black Sabbath, Mercyful Fate, Venom, Tibetan Bon Singing, Sun O))), medieval music, European Black Metal like Mayhem, Watain, Darkthrone,Satyricon, Bathory, Marțolea, Svartidauði, Dødsengel, Saligia. And many more... Many of them influenced us. This is like a smelting pot inside us. 12.Outside of music what are some of your interests? Some of us are involved in programming, some of us write poems and prose or even draw. We want to issue covers of our albums only with our art. Also we often hanging out together. 13.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview? Among the variety of things, find the main one. Don't believe anyone and be yourself. Regards Veligore band
