Kyy Interview

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

Kyy: We have known each other with some of the band members for a long time. We share same ideologies and also have similar musical taste. After having some conversations on what we really would like to do, we decided to found Kyy around the beginning 2013.  

2.In August you have an ep coming out, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?

Kyy:  The musical sound is like a legless, armless& limbless hunter that strikes suddenly without warning to its prey and its venom goes straight to your soul.

3.The band has been around since 2013 but waited 2 years to release any music, can you tell us a little bit more about the first couple of years?

Kyy: We had the songs ready as demo versions back in 2013 which are going to be on debut EP. Before recording a decent release, we decided to gather a full line-up and rehearse the songs and become a real band. After finding a second guitarist and a bass guitarist, we decided to record the EP. 

4.Your lyrics cover Satanism and Left Hand Path themes, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in these subjects?

Kyy: With all respect to to your question, Satanism and Left Hand Path are more than interest for us.

5.I know that the bands name means 'viper' in Finnish, how does this name fit in with the musical style you play?

Kyy: If you look at different civizilations all over the world, snakes have always been symbolically and literally important in their cultures and folklore. I would like people to use their imagination and have their own understanding of this when they listen to our releases and read our lyrics.

Kyy: They will be able to witness and feel our intense energy.

Kyy: We have known people from the label for some years and when we were ready with the mastering of the EP, we decided to send it straight to Saturnal Records. The reaction was very satisfactory and they offered a good deal for the EP. But most important thing for us was to work with individuals who share same ideologies.

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

Kyy: So far, so good. To be honest, we are very satisfied with our music. Of course what other people think also count but it is very crucial to underline that we are playing the music we love, that’s more important than anything else for us.

9.Are any of the band members also involved with any other bands or musical projects these days?

Kyy: There are band members who are involved in different black / death metal bands from Finland. But with all respect to your question, we do not see it relevant to talk about our other bands for the time being.
