Nox Desperatio Interview

1. For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

= It begins in the middle of the year 2009 with two integrants, D.V and myself Vel. This band is born from the restlessness process of expressing certain ideas and visions in parallel to our other solo projects. D.V comes from M.C.C and me from Velork.

2. So far you have released one full length, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical style you went for on this recording?

= For this production which is the second, we tried to use different lines inside the Raw Black Metal genre also some Depressive and Doom elements.

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

= Our lyrics are based on death and its transcendence, the dark and shadowy parts of the mind, the capacity we all have to create and to destroy. Far from empty dogmas and idolatries always parting from the will and power of each one of us with an esoteric focus we proclaim the curse and the decease of humanity itself.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Nox Desperatio'?

= It is literally translated as "Nocturnal Despair" the opposite side of calm, the night represented with its mysteries far from light, its name is developed in the field where the tormented consciousness dwells.

5. The album cover had a lot of occult and alchemy symbols', can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in the esoteric arts?

= We've always felt very intrigued by those since our early ages and it has remain the same. The need to obtain more knowledge, to experiment and do more as well. This design is under the strokes of BMS Illustration after we suggested some ideas, he came up with this and we are very pleased.

6. Currently there are only 2 members in the band, are you open to expanding the line up or do you prefer to remain a duo?

= If the situation changes we could be open to include other members to the band but right now we are satisfied with how we've been working together and this is the result.

7. The CD version was released through Centurion Productions', while the cassette version was released through 'Unpleasant Records', do you feel both of these labels have been very supportive when it comes to getting your music out there heard?

=  Of course, we never thought we would have such reception with the people out there. We feel always grateful with Centurion and Unpleasant for giving us the opportunity, it is a great labour what they do in order to broadcast the newproposals of the genre not to mention the exposure the band receives worldwide so... it is of great value to us who develop in this art condemned to exile.

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

= I think it has had a great reception like I mentioned before, the mix has been of interest to the public and we are glad to know that.

9. When can we expect new music and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

= We are currently working in a full length production which is named 'Incineratio Arcana Nocte' this will have 8 songs charged with lots of strength, hate and chaos. We will be announcing more novelties about it soon and we will continue working in the future that's how we visualize ourselves, spreading this art without layers, more studies searching always for evolution inside our lines in order to raise even more the projection we could have and with this, offer something true with a heavy content

10.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?

= When it comes to Nox Desperatio it could be said it has influences of genres that go from Raw Black, Depressive, Suicidal to Classic Doom to mention just a few. About other bands well it's a bit difficult to say because it takes a bit of time to pay atenttion with detail, we have stayed in the corrosive and destructive sound of the last decades, it varies a lot in the influence tha we integrate in Nox Desperatio.


11.What are some of your non musical interests?
= Martial arts, knives, guns, history, science and esoterism.
