Stellar Master Elite interview

1. Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?
Dave: We spent a lot of time finishing everything else after the recording of the album, as it was finished in the end of 2011 right after the release of “I”. Mixing, mastering and designing issues took a lot of time until we were fully satisfied. After that there was a lot to do to help our label with their promo work. At the moment we are recording guitars and drums for our next output.

2. Recently you put out a new album, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical direction it is in and also how does it differ from the album you released in 2011?
D: I think it feels more compact than our first output. The album fits together perfectly in every song. It drags you so much deeper. The concept is the same like than on our last and our next album.

3. When I look at the band logo, I noticed that there is a third eye, does Occultism or other similiar topics play a role in your music?
D: “Occult” sounds like para-science. I would rather speak about reality. Our music deals with our reality as we experience it. There are strange things going on in the world and we can´t percept with our five senses. The frequencies beyond the visible light are further than our mind can expect. The world is not what it seems to be. You are being lied to...!

4. Can you tell us a little bit more about the song lyrics on the new album what they cover and also how you feel you have progressed as songwriters over the last 2 years?
D: I don´t want to give any preoccupation to our listeners. They have to experience it in their own way. We developed as personalties rather than our technical skills. It feels like a natural development. We never practise on our own, everything just happens.

5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?
D: As we haven´t played any gigs right now, there are no best performances.

6. Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?
D: No. We are a songwriting and studio oriented band. We love to work in the studio and develop our songs. Besides the music we are full time workers. As there is not much time to work with more musicians on a concept to bring the same quality to stage. A two man band is much easier to handle than a full band and it would take a lot of time to fit more than 2 egos together. If you have such a limited amount of time, you have to set priorities. And by the way, rehearsing and playing the same songs all the time is really boring.

7.The new album came out on Exciter Records, can you tell us a little bit more about this label?
D: As it is a new label and we are the first release there is not much to tell. The future will show in which direction it goes and we wish Alex the best in releasing more quality music. At the moment I think he is searching for some special bands for future releases and busy regarding our upcoming release.

8. What is going on with the other musical projects these days?
D: Beside SME, nothing. SME is my second full time job and there is no time for other projects.

9.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
D: We started to record drums and guitars just a few weeks ago. We want it to be really dark and experimental. That´s we want it to sound like. It happens on a very intuitive level and not as a conscious decision. Let´s see what future brings.

10. What are some bands or musical style that have influenced your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
D: I´m really much into John Carpenter Scores at the moment and listen to a lot of experimental music like Aun. The new Ulver album is fantastic as well and i can´t get my hands off of Kraftwerk´s Trans Europa Express.

11.Outside of music what are some of your interests?
D: I do a lot of handcraft work on building synthesizers and small sound machines. I´m collecting analogue synthesizers and strange sounding things. Besides music there isn´t much except reading books and watching 70´s and 80´s sci fi movies.

12.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
D: Thanks for your interest in our music and this interview. Support DIY bands in buy their stuff if you like what you hear. It is really hard financing projects like this nowadays. You can find us at www.stellarmasterelite.com.

Ancestors Blood Interview

1. Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

-At the moment we are rehearsing and preparing new songs for the future effort and
hopefully soon we can begin to record a new song for the upcoming split with Profezia.

2.How would you describe the musical sound of the new album and how it differs from previous releases?

-It reminds me of somewhat similar to Satyricon’s first album and maybe even little bit of Ulver's "Nattens Madrigal". We have grown as a band to a totally new level bringing a bit of melody to the already existing core, I try to maintain true to my origins musically as much as possible yet creating something new and inspiring.

3.The song lyrics cover a lot of Pagan topics, can you tell us a little bit more about your views on Paganism?

-Paganism is a part of an important core that defines my world view. I am not a shaman but I have more or less shamanistic world view. I used to be more like agnostic but that changed pretty much after my near death accident and therefore I've become to seek knowledge, power and guidance from both the giants/titans, gods, spirits of my ancestors, surrounding world and beyond.

4. The band started out as Lost Wisdom but changed the name, what was the decision behind the name change and also what is the meaning and inspiration behind the name Ancestors  Blood?

-It was brought to my attention that there was/is already a band(s) existing by that name so I had to search for new one, I wasn't satisfied by the name anyway so no big deal. Be that as it may I had a dream of a huge ancient battle taking place somewhere unknown, blood and guts etc. everywhere until a sudden silence and darkness. Then I woke up and realized that what better way to describe a name that combines my interest towards all the things of certain aspect that I hold precious and thus Ancestors Blood came to existence.

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

- Our every performance has been an eyeopener to fully see what things work and what doesn't.

6. Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?

-No plans for tour or live performances yet, hopefully something comes up in the future.

7. The new album came out on  Heidens Hart Records, how did you get in contact with this label and how would you describe the support they have given yo so far?

-It was somewhere around 2004-05 when I first contacted them and sent them promo material, they replied with a great interest of releasing "Wisdom..." and so agreement was made. HHR has been the most supportive label that our band could have, we owe them gratitude for giving us the audibility that has helped to raise the knowledge of existence of Ancestors Blood.

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

-What I've talked with people and read some of the reviews it has been both positive and negative so quite normal feedback.

9. What is going on with the other musical projects these days/

-Kadotus is preparing a new album and plays live whenever possible.
A new project which I am involved carries the name Kuolonkorpi, we are finishing the first demo hopefully soon and have already started creating new songs.

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

-We will take a new step ahead and the next effort will possibly be much more slower paced and yet even atmospheric than our latest album.

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

- Some of the early and present influences are Bathory, Enslaved, Ulver, Kampfar, Moonsorrow, Primordial, Manowar, Manilla Road, Absu...
Also music composers like Jerry Goldsmith, Ennio Morricone, Basil Poledouris, Bill Conti, Jason Hayes, Glenn Stafford, Jonathan Dunn, Nils-Aslak Valkeapää and classical such as Sibelius, Bach etc. Then there are bands like Goblin, Irwin Goodman, Mortiis, 80's Pantera, Rainbow, Motörhead, King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, Saxon, OZ, Rush, Death SS, Dio, Black Sabbath, Morbid, Death, Mötley Crüe, Iron Maiden, Paradise Lost, Candlemass, Saint Vitus, W.A.S.P.etc.

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

-I meditate, read books, watch movies, go jogging, play video games etc.

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

-Thank you for this interview opportunity and all the best to your zine's future.
Let the flames of our ancestors burn forever in our hearts!

  "Sodom'  begins  with  some sound  effects  and  orchestra  sounds  which  leads  to some  deep  growls  and  then  some  guitar  leads,  bass  guitars  and  drums  start  kicking  in  along  with  some  black  metal  screams  which  then  starts  adding  in  heavier  guitar riffs  which  also  get  fast  in  certain  sections  of  the  song  and  after  awhile  more  guitar  leads  are  being  utilized  as  well  as  some  avant  garde  elements.

Barbelith Interview

1. Can you tell us a little bit about the band for those that have never heard of you before?

We are a single entity, comprising four individuals bound together in the process of filtering the ancient sounds of our souls through the material of consensus reality.

2. How would you describe your musical sound?

Diverse expression on a pure collaborative level. We take atmospheric black metal as a sonic basis but impose no limitations on how our songs develop from there.

3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

We seek to expose the inherent darkness of the human soul while pointing to the inevitable light found when that darkness is acknowledged and accepted within the self.

4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the band's name?

"Barbelith" is derived from the comic book series "The Invisibles." The eponymous protagonists live outside the illusion of controlled society, fighting the forces that chain humankind. Barbelith is a sentient satellite object that appears to each of the main characters, helping them awaken from the dream and comprehend their innermost selves.

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

We see our live performances as primal rituals that allow us to extend the energy of our personal practice to an audience. Each performance is special in different ways, but a recent highlight was our performance at this year's Ratscape festival in Baltimore.

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

We're currently taking a short break from live performance to focus on new material.

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

We are in the process of mixing two new songs for a 7-inch release. We hope to find a like-minded label to release them once they're ready. 8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?

Though our international audience is limited as of yet, those who have seen us perform or listened to our existing recordings have been very receptive to what we're doing, black metal fans included.

9.Are any of the band members involved with any other musical projects?

Though we approach Barbelith as a singular entity, we have very diverse interests as individuals. Our other projects include ¥awn, Nostalgique, Gutterhooks, Red Supergiant, Soul Glimpse, Eternity Eyes, Mark Plasma, and Pallid.

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

More dense atmospherics and hypnotic melodies

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

We take influence from our individual life situations and emotional struggles, incorporating those passions into our music. We each have individual influences, but it's not what we rely on for musical inspiration.

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

We are all active participants in Baltimore's arts culture. Our interests lie in any and all forms of higher expression.

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

Your journey is always in bloom

Cvinger Interview

1.Can you tell us a little bit about the band for those that have never heard of you before?
Bagot:
Blasphemy, rituals, misanthropy, hatred and dark fucking medieval darkness. We never chose to play black metal or were seeking the genre that will please us! It was already there waiting for us to conquer, or as Lucerus would say: "Slay the wolves so the goats could rise and enter the MONASTERY OF FALLEN"


2.How would you describe the musical sound that is present on both recordings?
Bagot:
Sound is more or less raw. We are not the biggest fans of new age sound productions and triggering.  Unfortunately we had to use drum replacement for kick and toms on Monastery of fallen. We tried to avoid it but we were recording guitars and drums together to maintain live feeling which affected sound kick and toms.

3.How would you describe your songwriting approach to the lyrics?
Bagot:
Lyrics are Lucesruses presentations or reflections we could say on his current state of mind. They all have deeper meanings, mostly summoned from stench of every day life. Lyrics are NOT political but you can find some similarities, since politics pretty much influence our life. As a reader you can interpret them as you want you can seek you own under lines and meanings or judge them. We don't give a shit about what black metal lyrics should be and how to write deep lyrics or just using heavy words to sound deep. I can say that Luceruses lyrics, my guitars and Krieg maschines drums are all the hatred, wrath and burden we carry, summoned together. The fucking spawn of Cvinger.

4.I know that the band is an old Slovenian word for cemetery walls for where people who committed
suicide where buried, why did you decide the use it as a band name and also how does it fit in with the
musical concept's?
Bagot:
Suicide was something unacceptable in past, people believe (and still are) that  you will go to hell if you committed suicide. It was total dishonor and it was blasphemous act. That says it all.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your
stage performance?
Bagot:
We didn't have any gigs yet.

6. Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
Bagot:
After we record full length album we will definitely do some touring.

7.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or received any interest?
Bagot:
Yes we are looking for label. We received some interest from few small net labels but  it doesn't really help. I mean if you have a small net label and you can't provide a band with gigs, and cover at least 50% of CD press costs then what is your purposes in this business?

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?
Bagot:
I really don't know. But I read some reviews from webzines and blog spots and I got this feeling that if are not every day listener of black metal you probably won't like us.

9.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
Bagot:
We have some new material already but I can't tell you this because even I don't know. We will see where the music will take us.

10.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you
listening to nowadays?
Bagot:
Mostly death metal.

11.How would you describe your views on Satanism and Occultism?
Bagot:
Satanism:
I think there is no real Satanism here or worldwide. I don't see burning churches and frogs falling from sky. Also LaVeyan  followers have nothing to do with satanism. I tired to read the book but never finished. If we are talking about satanism we are talking about: war on god, lust, selfishness, sacrifice, murder, hatred, eternal fire, death, rituals evolving sacrifice, black mass, blasphemy. Not some gnostic worshiping and narcissism. Satanism is everything opposite of christianity. Satanism is living the seven fucking deadly sins.
Occultism:
Occultism is very wide  subject and it is all around us: christianity, buddhism , hindu, jehovah witnesses, rosary, the star brothers (evolving suicides, which is cool) …
I thing: one step deeper in cult is one step further from thy self. Being a part of a cult is just following someones orders, very close to dictatorship. People in cult are mostly people who are disappointed in thy self or not happy with current situation, seeking for fortune and greater wisdom and meaning of life. It is nothing wrong with occultism some pope need is some despise it.

12.Outside of music what are some of your interests?
Bagot:
I am working on metal CD store and online metal radio with reviews and interviews.

13.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this
Bagot:
I have 2 thinks to say:
1. If you want our CD and don't have the money to buy it, DON'T send us email that we send you signed (or unsigned) CD to review it. And later do nothing except having our free copy of CD. You know who you are and fuck you in name of this band, fuck you again. If you want to buy and don't have money to buy our CD or shirt send us mail we will work something out, we are musicians not fucking corporate, business, merchants of death.
2. For all those who support us and find in our music something for themselves special thanks. You can buy our stuff on our official web page and bandcamp.
On Ebay seller: Metal Monastery has our work and is also direct support. Go check our music video Monastery of fallen on youtube or on our official website: www.cvinger.com. And special tanks to Mike from Abyss records and The metal detector music promotions.

Lonesummer Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what is going on with the musical project these days?
These days I have really been taking it slow with Lonesummer. I’ve been playing a show here and there and have some song ideas hashed out, but really it’s coming along at a snail’s pace. Lonesummer started because I was going through severe depression and agoraphobia, not leaving my apartment for weeks. So I decided to start recording simple, raw, short tracks in my room as a way to keep my mind busy. These days, I’m a lot happier with my life and I feel that this impacts my ability to focus on Lonesummer. I would never want to force myself to write and record, as I feel that’s not genuine to the original purpose of Lonesummer.
2. Recently you have put out a split with Planning For Burial, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical direction you took on the new recording ans also wow it differs from previous releases?
I think that of all the Lonesummer recordings that were just myself, these were the most focused. I thinked I worked a little longer on the structuring and writing process of each song, especially the Mount Eerie cover. It’s also the first time I’ve recorded a cover, which oddly enough, I’ve never put that much time into a song before. These were the first recordings I did that actually used bass on, so I think it added a little something extra.
3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the newer music explores?
The lyrical concepts usually have dealt with concepts of heartbreak, loneliness and longing. I suppose it comes off as melodramatic at times, which I have no qualms with. It was always supposed to be about honesty and as a cry for help in ways.
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name Lonesummer?
Besides the fact that I began Lonesummer in a particularly lonely summer, there isn’t too much meaning behind the name itself.
5. In the studio you record everything by yourself but you session members to do live shows, have you ever thought about using a full band on one of your recordings?
Well the material from the Trist split was recorded with Thom from Planning for Burial, who is our constant drummer, and the leads were from our occasional guitarist James. I really loved the way those tracks came out and would love to keep recording with those guys, but we are all far away from each other and lead busy lives. Live, we are usually joined by my friends Tyler and Dylan, who I play with in my other band Angelcrust. We’ve talked about recording some tracks together, but it just never came to fruition
6. What are some of the best shows that you have played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?
Our lives shows are interesting I suppose, and run the gamut between terrible and chaotic. I suppose you could expect strings breaking, numerous injuries, gear smashed and me unable to talk for days after. We used to play as just a two piece, and I was surprised people kept booking us because we were awful. I suppose it was chaotic as fuck, but me and Thom would never practice and basically just go up there and scream and play terribly and clear out the room. Nowadays I think we’re a lot better, as long as I don’t drink too much before we play. We’ve played with some really great friends and bands like Deafheaven, Ramlord, Wreck and Reference and Bastard Thieves. But personally I think our best show was a very small show with Yellow Eyes last summer in Brooklyn. Everything just clicked that night.
7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
Our shows seem to be a little more rare due to busy schedules these days. We played with our good friends in Ramlord last month, which was a blast. I’d love to do a tour, but as I said before, our schedules are so busy with work and school, I don’t know if it would work. Plus I have been putting most of my focus on Angelcrust, so if we did have the time, it would go to an Angelcrust tour. But a weekend tour is definitely plausible. I just don’t know if my voice could hold up more than three shows.
8.Over the years you have put out splits with other bands, out of all the bands you worked with on these albums, which one did you enjoy the most?
Well the Planning for Burial splits have been great, simply because Thom’s music is consistently great. But I was beyond stoked to do a split with Trist, a musician I’ve admired for years before I even started Lonesummer. So that was a bit of a dream come true.
9.Currently the project is signed to Music Ruin's Lives, can you tell us a little bit more about this label?
Music Ruins Lives is Thom’s label. It specializes in generally sadder music, and has a great roster. I think he’s planning on ending the label though. It’s hard work.
10. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your recordings by fans of underground music?
I’ve always been so surprised and gracious that strangers from around the world would listen to sloppy recordings I did in my bedroom. Of course, I’ve read some negative reviews, and I don’t blame them. I’m still in the stage of denial where I refuse to believe anyone actually likes my music; they’re just being nice. Although whoever that girl in Russia who got a Lonesummer is, you rule.
11.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
I honestly have no clue. Lonesummer songs are written very amateurishly, as I can barely play the guitar. I sit down, fiddle around, discover a riff, and immediately turn it into a song. So whatever happens the next time I sit down with the guitar, we’ll see.
12. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
I realized I made a mistake by ignoring a lot of amazing black metal in the past because it was NS. So I’ve been rediscovering a lot of Graveland, Absurd and Der Sturmer. Amazing stuff, politics aside. Besides that and the new Peste Noire, I haven’t been listening to much black metal. Mostly just been listening to a lot of Tragedy, Gattaca, Discharge, Aus Rotten, Das Oath, Fall of Efrafa, and Morrissey of course
13.Outside of music what are some of your interests?
I honestly don't really have too many interests outside of music and music related activities
14.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
Thanks for listening!

0 The Experiment Interview

1. For those that have never heard of you before can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?
1. 0 is an experimental black metal one man project. The only instrument used in this project is a four string bass. It's a project which tries to find out how far a bond between a man and a musical instrument can go. After a lot of work on the project it's clear to me that the reason I use only a bass to create sound is that this organ is the only one I am familiar and I feel comfortable with. 0 tries to explore new soundscapes, I am trying to gather all the emotions I absorb from life and make them music. 


2. How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the album?
2. What I am trying to do with my music is to transfer the listener to the place the lyrics and the music describe. I am trying to "build", to create mental places where the listener can exist with the creatures the lyrics speak about, with the situations the lyrics speak about, with me. To be more specific about the sound of the album I think that it creates feelings of survival with and from the destruction and at the same time feelings of an inner pursuit of pure existence

3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the project explores with the music?
3. The lyrics speak about dark creatures acting in situations between life and death. Most of these creatures are filled with hate and lust for destruction. They seek vengeance.


4. Currently there is only 1 member in the band and you only use bass  guitars and vocals are there any plans in the future to add other musical instruments and musicians to the project?
. 0 is and is going to be an one man project that creates sound with the use of a bass and a throat. In the future I may form or take part in other projects-bands but that will have nothing to do with 0.

5.Currently you are unsigned are you looking for a label or received any interest?
5. At the moment I am trying to promote the project the best way I can by myself. I am not pursuing a label contract at the moment. I would be interested in working with a label-team-person who believe in my music and want to promote it the best way they can but except that, I don't think I am interested in a sterile CD/Vinyl distribution.


6. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?
6. It's pretty good I guess. It's really hard to know, 0 is an experimental project and the sound it creates is pretty unique. Even I am not sure about the quality of the sound right now. I think time will decide if the act is successful or not.

7. Are there any other musical projects going on these days?
7. No, I am working only on 0 at the moment. I am thinking of creating another act but that's something that I may do after 2-3 or even 4 years from now.

8.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
8. I have nearly completed the second album of the project. I think the second album is using different tools to create the same feelings and soundscapes. By different tools, I mean that I have used more clean than distrorted layers of music. I would describe this album as white-blank noise, as a big pure fire.


9.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
9. The main problem of the project was the luck of drums. That's why I had to listen to many different music styles and especially bands that do not use drums to create dark atmosphere. It's hard and I have not found a whole genre of music that can do that. Some bands-projects that have influenced me is Burzum and Haus Arafna. Nowadays I am listening to the last Rotting Christ album, especially "Κατά Τον Δαίμονα Εαυτού" is one of my favorite songs. I have also discovered an experimental black metal act called "Mamaleek", they are great.


10.Does Satanism or Occultism  play any role in your music?
10. I think that there is a sacred side in my music which seeks the unseen, the untouchable but I am not influenced by Satanism or Occultism to achieve that. This sacred side is being given by the pursuit for purity.


11.Outside of music what are some of your interests?
11. I enjoy a lot watching films and reading books but we should not speak about me. The attention must stay on the project.

12.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
12. What I would like to ask the people that are going to get in touch with my music, is to listen to the whole album with the songs in the right sequence. This way they will get in touch with the sounds of the album in a better way, I have not put the songs in a random sequence. Thank you for the interview and for suppoting the act, it is much appreciated.
