After the recording of Lucifer Corpus Edimus between 2013-2014 and its release in October of 2014, Noche Eterna has been working on its second album, and also a split album collaborating with other Ecuadorian legions; both productions will be released by mid-late 2015.
2.In October you had released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?
The first demo didn't come out as raw as anticipated due to money issues and studio availability; instead, Lucifer Corpus Edimus contains a raw and more putrid sound, which undeniably projects the evil and hatred we expected in the production of this piece.
3.The current album was the first material to be released in 5 years, can you tell us a little bit more about what has been going on during that time frame?
We did couple of live rituals, worked in the making and recording of the Lucifer Corpus Edimus, a member of the band split apart for personal reasons, so we decided to continue Noche Eterna as a two piece band.
4.The lyrics on the new album cover a good amount of Satanic, Luciferian and Occult topics, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in the dark arts?
We follow the dark path, so as for our lyrics, they must evoke the obscure ideas and ideals of Noche Eterna.
5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Noche Eterna'?
Noche Eterna is spanish for Eternal Night; an metaphor for the Evil Master’s kingdom.
6.The band originally was a trio but now is reduced down to a duo, are you open to letting other musicians into the fold again during the future?
We created Noche Eterna as an extension of the obscurity and knowledge within ourselves as members of this pact, it should be continued and maintained that way. We are not looking for an additional member, but possibilities are open.
7.Originally the band was from Ecuador but now resides in Florida, what was the decision behind the move?
We are all from Ecuador, and we came to the States through different life circumstances. The band initiated in Florida after our common ideals were materialized as Noche Eterna.
8.Has the band done any live shows or is this strictly a studio project?
We did a couple of live rituals in the past, but currently we have stayed as a studio project.
9.The new album was released on Chivo Negro Productions, can you tell us a little bit more about this label?
Chivo Negro Productions is an independent underground metal label located in the Andean region of Ecuador. The label is focused in the production and distribution of limited edition black metal albums including the works of legions such as Black Angel, Moloch, Masturbación Cristiana among others.
10.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?
We have received respectable feedback from Portuguese, Bolivian, and Colombian legions on the “Reino de Guerra y Muerte” and “Lucifer Corpus Edimus” albums.
11.Are any of the band members also involved with any other bands or musical projects these days?
12.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
So far with the upcoming release of the album titled Mille Anni Tenebrarum, we are fully satisfied with the music composition and sound quality that we have achieved. The album projects crude and annihilating guitars, fast paced drums combined with demonic blends of hateful dual vocals.
13.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
There are no specific bands to be named as influences, but in general : first and second wave of black metal, darkness, war, hate, death, and the Horned King.
Lately listening to a lot to Sarcofago, and Cryfemal.
14.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Thanks for the support, and raise your horns with the sign of Satan!
Keep the dark flame alive!
