Ungod Interview

1.Can you update with what is going on with Ungod these days?
We have recorded 7 songs for several split releases. 6 are brand new stuff and 1 is a remake of a song from 1996. Songtitles are Deus est homo/thy serpents tonque/the wielding fist of the mangod/transsexual seraphs/blackwinged whore(leathercunt II)/firestorm,ashes ... genocide (2009 version) & born of the shadow womb.
those songs will appear on a hellish crossfire split 10 EP a ungod/black feast split 7 EP and a 3 way split lp with üparagon belial and zarathustra

2.How would you describe your sound for those that have never heard you before?
Ugly stinking old school extreme metal without compromises and without modern influences!
a good dose of catchiness!

3.I know that you disbanded for a few years, what was the cause of the break up, what where you doing the hiatus and what made you decide to reform the band?
Yeah,the band broke up in 1998 because of several personal reasons. It did just not really work out anymore. Our drummer continued playing in several bands and I continued my miserable life as "normal" fan by drinking,collecting records etc.
The band came back when huuricane from kneel before the masters throne records asked for a re release of our debut album.
so we decided to givi it a try again.

4.How did you hook up with Kneel Before The asters Throne Records and what is yore opinion on the other bands that are singed to the label?
I knew dennis(hurricane) already some years and he came to us asking for the re release of circle of the seven infernal pacts. Instead he first re released our 1996 mcd conquering what once was ours with bonustracks on vinyl & .. will follow soon! I like most of the bands he is releasing and know the old stuff he reissued quite good since more power to them!

5.Do you Do you have any other projects going on besides Ungod?

6.Have you had the opportunity to do a live show and if so how would you describe your stage performance?
Ungod did never play live so far due to many line up problems etc., but one day we will hit the stage for sure!Leather,spikes & metal is what you´ll get!

7.What are some bands that you would like to do shows with or tour?
There are many,but those here would be great:blasphemy,sarcofago, hellish crossfire,desaster,witchburner,pentacle and any faithful to the old roots band!
no political and wimpy shit bands!

8.How would you describe your musical progress over the years and what direction do you see the music heading into on the new material?
We obviously became better at our instruments and we are better songwriters now,at least a bit,hehe. We wont change too much since that´s what Ungod is all about - chaos,catchiness and pure fucking metal spirit! Too many old bands became just wishy washy over the years by incorporating new elements into their sound/style.we´ll keep it our way and we don´t betray our followers!

9.When can we expect the next release?
At the end of march we will release the În numele Metalului Est-European Demotape in a limited edition of 100 tapes.This is Ungods Tribute to the Ancient East European Scene when Bands like
Master`s Hammer, Root,Tormentor,Turbo,Törr,Kat and the likes ruled the World
with obscure fucking Metal! You`ll get to hear 7 of our Songs with rumanian
Vocals sung by our Guest singer Zdrobitor.
Then we hope that all those split releases will come out without to big delays.
We plan to record a new full length album at the end of the year.

10.What is the meaning behind the band's name?
Ungod can also be explained as the mangod. Simply said - man is his own god!

11.How would you describe the lyrical content of the music?
Heresy, blasphemy, ancient wisdom and a good dose of obscenity. I think that really sums it up. Some lyrics are just plain simple some have a deeper meaning. This just depends on the mood of the song. We are no book writers nor any poetic guys.the lyrics just have to fit the music.

12.Out off all the releases that you have recorded so far which one are you the most satisfied with?
I love all our releases! Right now I´m very much into the new songs we have recorded.

13.How has your music been received so far by black metal fans worldwide?
The old underground people are still into us and the younger ones start to discover Ungod as an old cult band from the early nineties. It does not really matter to us anyways - we like what we do.

14.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced the music of Ungod and what are you listening to nowadays?
When we first started out it was bands like sodom,destruction,bathory,hellhammer,posessed,celtic frost,samael and the likes. Being underground freaks and tape traders it was also stuff like blasphemy,rotting christ,sarcofago,varathron,sadistik exekution and stuff like that. We all listen to metal/rock only and our tastes are in some ways different.i listen to a lot of eighties metal be it speed/thrash power or whatever metal while the others are more on the extreme side of it all.
in the end we all are a unit of die hard metal freaks!

15.Does Satanism or Occultism play any role in the band or music?
Satanism not,but if you mean by occultism everything obscure,unexplainable and kinda dark - yes.
i´m too old for any "isms".

16.What forms of the Occult are you interested in?
Everything mysterious and everything that is kinda forbidden or non understandable to common human beings. There is so much going on in the twilight world that you can´t really explain by simple words.

17.What are some of your interests outside of music?
Not really that much outside music. Everything in my life is somewhow linked to music. Being a real dedicated metal fan there are not too many other things to do besides buying records,drinking and visiting shows.

18.Any final words or thoughts of blasphemy?
Thanx a lot for investing time in our little band! Hope it was not too boring for you!Look out for ungod releases when you get the chance for it!All the best!
