Veldraveth Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and release of the new album?

Of course the updates for all regarding the band's plans since we recorded and release our most recent album was a duplication of the work we have been in the past months, we have been doing some gigs in our country and preparing some visual works and some other stuff for the promotion of Malformations of God.

2.in March 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?

Malformations of God is a different album for many reasons, we deal with some textures changes and some sound changes this time, we are free to work on the way we believe is the better, so we decided as for the type of compositions the sound of this album may be some aggressive. I am satisfy with the final result.

3.In the beginning you had a more of a black metal style but the newer material also mixes in a lot of death metal, what was the decision behind going into this direction?

I told you before, we manage to change our sound when we heard the type of composition, of course we have more black metal in the past, but we always will be a black metal styled band, I think we are free to look and experiment different things.

4.This is your first full length since 2009, what was going on during that time span?

If you see our discography you can realize we have been so busy working on a split who was released with Funebria, a band from our country, and we spend a lot of time working in the releasing of the ten anniversary box called "Moumentos de oscuridad y muerte" this took a lot of time, and plus the retirement of some members of the band in these times, we have experienced a lot of dead time, but we never rest.

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

We manage to write some stuff from different sources, this time we explore and try to explain our point of views to the "believers in god" of any religion, we treat they as " malformed people, from here is wher the title of the album was taken.

6.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Veldraveth'?

Veldraveth was emerged some years ago, we like to tell that the meaning is that Veldraveth is the structure of chaos.

7.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

We have been playing live since the born of the band, I think we have do some good shows in our country as well we have bad shows, by some external issues or problems with organizer but lately shows have been gettng more organized and better as well, this is a good point.

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

 Of course we are planning to tour in latin america very soon.

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

The feedback was very impressive, we have receive messages from people from different countries, I think we're approaching in a good way, always in the vein of the under.

10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

We never stop to create new music and show it to the world, we don't want to stop the machinery, of course Veldraveth must seek his own way, it's a travel to discovering ourselves

11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

Fuck yeah, we tray to sintetize influences from years before to our actual days, it's hard to mention all, but specially I am obsessed with Hypocrisy and bands like Belphegor, Weapon, Darkthone, to the more new acts like Cult of fire, Bathuska, and many more.

12.How would you describe your views on Satanism and Occultism?

I always will answer this the same way, people are free to look by his own, what is better for they, I think occult is a way of living, is interesting and exciting, but I am not into religious belief, neither Satan, I'm free of "Christian vision" on the world.

13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Thanks for the interview, hope you can get a listen to the new album, look for it in the social networks, bye.
