Khaos Aeon Interview

Interview Occult Black Metal Zine
1. Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

At the moment Khaos Aeon is mostly rehearsing and recording. A couple of rituals are to follow during December and the beginning of the next year as the last months were rather quiet when it came to concerts. We are starving regarding entering the stage again so expect some energies flowing around ...

2. The new album has been out for almost a year now, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical direction for those that have never heard the album and also how does it differ from previous efforts?

The latest output namely "Koenigreich" is an album that covers and reveals almost every aspect of Khaos Aeon as it was at the time of its creation. Influences are to be found not as easily as on previous releases since we made a big step both musically and lyrically, focusing more on inner aspects and cloistering ourselves more from outer sources. It is more straight forward bearing also a lot of tight atmosphere - without getting to sophisticated. What you here on "Koenigreich" is Khaos Aeon; and nothing else.

The lyrical topics cover a lot of Occult and Luciferian topics, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in the Occult and Left Hand Path?

The Occult, as you name it, is something that everybody has to explore by himself; and something that you can find only within yourself. Focus and do not get infiltrated from outer sources. It is as easy as that.
None of our "topics" are to be explained from my side as I am still studying them by myself.

What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name Khaos Aeon?

When it comes to chaos; see it as a mighty source from the most inner point of yourself. It is a chaotic trip full of throwbacks delving towards it. But it gets more addictive as faster as you travel ... And every step you make feeds your hunger of becoming one with it.
As an aeon is a rather limited period of time, chaos acts as a constant that was, is and will be from the very beginning to the very end. If you want to take it as "life", for you can take chaos as "death". So to begin from death, dwelling in life and return to death; this is what we endure. And this is what has to be transcended. "Aeon" is the task while "Khaos" is its goal.

I have read one of the band members travelled to Egypt not too long ago, do you feel that the Muslims steal their whole occult and pagan heritage?

Couldn't care less what Muslims do with their heritage. This is none of my concern.

What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?

Everyone; for the real performance is in our every self. So join us, open yourself and let some hell break loose ...

Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

As stated before we are going to play one gig in December of this year as a conclusion for a rather quiet year regarding live performances. We are hungry for 2014, so stay tuned.

Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?

No; and I am personally not interested in any label.
Would be nice of course to have a cooperation but we are hunting perfectly without any. So if there is no interest it is no barrier for Khaos Aeon.

On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?

How do you define something like that?
We got response from a lot of people we respect - so in our world: a very good response.

10. Are any of the band members involved with other musical projects these days?

Not anymore.

11. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?

Musically I really do not know as I am without any limitation when it comes to music. So be curious ...

12. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

For me personally I am listening to almost every style of music (with some exceptions of course). So if there is an influence It would take some time to find every single one.

13. Outside of music what are some of your interests?

Evolving mainly.

14. Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
