Vleddermos Interview

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

We started this band in 2018 to combine our interest in second wave black metal and horror movie soundtracks.
We had a distinct idea for an unique sound with lots of organ and rough black metal. To create black horror metal with a real dark atmosphere.

2.So far you have released both a demo and a full length, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical style you went for on the recordings?

Its a mixture of vintage horror soundtrack music and dark black metal like Beherit, Abruptum, Black Witchery.
There is also a small amount of improvisation.

3.The lyrics cover a lot of occult and horror  themes, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in those topics?

We deal with the history, occult, death and other dark topics.

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

Its our own version of the word for 'bat' in dutch.

5.Can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork that is presented on the album cover?

We went for an old school interpretation of horror and darkness. It's hugely influenced by vintage horror movie poster art.
We hope to convey a sense of dread, horror and wonderment.

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?

Yes this works best for now. We have no desire to expand Vleddermos at this stage.

7.Has the band done any live shows or have any plans for them in the future?

No we have not, nor do we have plans. The live situation is not one where we would feel at home.
Our music is best listened to at night, in the dark, in private.

8.The new album was released by 'Tribulacion Productions', can you tell us a little bit more about this label?
We contacted them through the internet. They are a dedicated label from Columbia, focussing on Black Metal.

9.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of black metal?
Until now the response have been a bit underwhelming. However this will never stop our dedication to this dark art.
But we surely hope the album will pick up a bit. We put so much effort into it.

10.Where do you see  the band heading into musically during the future?
We have no idea. We hope to record more and better black horror metal.

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?
Beherit, Abruptum, Black Witchery, Necromatia, Mystifier, Chakal, Sarcofago etc.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Hail Horror, Hail Black Metal! Thanks!
