Korgonthurus Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and release of the new album?

Necron: After the recording, we have been mostly been updating and keeping up our live condition. Also composing new material.

2.In May you had released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

Necron:What we wanted for "Vuohen Siunaus" was a clear but still raw sound. How it differs from the earlier works is that it was recorded by mr. Lius. All the other releases were recorded by our drummer Kryth. Because of lack of time we decided to outsource the recordings to mr. Lius.

3.Can you tell us a little bit more about the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with your newer music?

Necron: Lyrics are made by Corvus. Topics vary from misanthropy to satanism. Always has, always will.

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

Necron: First of all, it is KORGONTHURUS ! To us Korgonthurus is a channel to express our satanic views.

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?

Necron: We haven't done that much shows. One to remember is Under the Black Sun Festival in Germany. Surprisingly a lot of people came to see the show. Also our last show in Tampere, Finland was totally awesome experience.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?

Necron: None whatsoever

7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your newer album by fans of black metal?

Necron: So far so good. Quite positive. What is the most important that we are satisfied with the end result, i personally couldn't care less what everyone else thinks about it.

8.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part of?

Necron: Three of the members also play in Totalselfhatred and we ( TSH ) have been recording the third album for a quite a long time now. Also we have done several shows all around Europe. Kryth has been busy with his own projects during these months ,if i remember correctly MUSTA KAPPELI should release or has already released their latest album. Kryth is also involved with ANAL BLASPHEMY, so keep your eyes and ears open, 'cus they'll be releasing a new album.

9.The band started in 2000, do you feel black metal has changed for the better or the worse since then?

Necron: All a matter of opinion. How i feel is that there is too much hype on NSBM. Black metal is SATAN ! It has nothing to do with political views or any related. But back into your question, i wouldn't say that it has gone worse, it is good that the flame is kept alive but still there is too many bands that should not exist.

10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

Necron: Hard to say. We do what we want. We don't like to limit our music.

11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

Necron: There isn't any specific musical styles where we get our influences. Influence can come from anything basically. I personally listen to all kinds of music, boring to limit yourself into something specific. But my roots are in Black Metal. I guess i'm getting old since almost everything what i listen is recorded in the nineties and i get the kicks from it. Not that many bands has made an impact on me.

12.How would you describe your views on Satanism?

Necron: For me this is a very personal thing. I don't want to share my views on that matter.

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

Necron: Thank you for the interview. Listen to the "Vuohen Siunaus", love it or hate it.
