Light Of Death Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
1.-first greetings from bolivia, well, about us; I can tell that we are the first black metal band from our city (tarija) active since 2010 but our first release saw light in 2013, limited just to 20 copies, the band grew up with every show around the city, composing our own songs, telling about darkness, sickness, death, suicide and despair, I think our songs tell exactly what they wanna tell, from the lyrics to the music, sometimes raw, others dark and deep like the fog, others like an eternal despair in silence, that's what I can tell about us, we are real, we make what we wanna make,what we do, even if only we play our music for 10 metalheads around, we have to offer reality in this times of plastic

2.So far this year you have released 2 albums, musically how do they differ from the stuff you have released in the past?
2.-well, they differ only musically, I mean, We like to experiment with some things, from this the "avantgarde" label, about lyrics always we talk about the dark side of life, and maybe the production, 'cause i know the first releases are rawer in comparison with newer material.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?
3.-like I said before, our lyrics are about the dark side of life, excistance, suicide, death, actually we are working in the first long play album titled "In sickness & death" here the topics are sickness, madness, remorse, death and hate, we hope this work come true very soon

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Light Of Death'?
4.-abouth the name, I think the light of death is like the last time in life, a little second when we change the light for eternal darkness, the moment of death, the final of existence and a moment of illumination

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
5.-we think the best shows are 2, the first in our city in a place called "ex-torito" near of cementery, with bands from argentina and in cochabamba in a black metal festival , and our performance in stage i think people who listen our music can tell you, but always we show the best of us

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
6.-for now we are trying to finish the recording and production of our album, but if we have the chance we'll do it

7.So far you have worked with both 'Introspective Minds Records' and 'Ars Metal' on your releases, do you feel these labels have been very helpful when it comes to getting your music out there heard?
7.-arts metal are very helpful to us, the band is known out from tarija for the work of arts metal, and introspective mind records is just for recording and it's also very helpful to us

8.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of black metal?
8.-I think we are welcome in argentina, and I saw fans from mexico and other places in the facebook page, so I think we are going to the right way

9.Are any of the band members currently involved with any other bands or musical projects these days?
9.-yes we do, Alberto & Me (Orlando) also have our musical projects, Kevin & Aldo started with their projects too, but when we have to do something with light of death, nothing else matters, and light of death brings its darkness

10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
10.-I think to a renewal of genre and to a new level of experimentation

11.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?

12.What are some of your non musical interests?
12.-drugs jaja it's a joke, mmmm I think the art in every way

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