Stupor Mundi Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?
1 The project is a one man band born in 2016  , i started with rehearsing various songs and i written various lyrics abouts politics and society .
Stupor Mundi is a political band and is born because i have various thing to talk about , especially political and i really enjoy to listen and play black metal music

2.So far you have released a demo and a split, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on both of the recordings?
2 The sound is raw and it want to  give the atmosphere of the class struggle  and the revolution ,  things that are hard and violent .

3.Your lyrics cover Marxism, Communism, and Left Wing Politics, can you tell us a little bit more about what these mean to you?
3 It is a important thing for me , i started with communist history but i try to extend this to present because i want to talk about our society.
In "non è finita" from the split i tried to mix history and actuality: 30 years ago with the collapse of berlin wall the corporate business said to us that history is ended and the world will be more rich and developed but is a lie , and history is not ended : marxism for me is a response to this lie , because in europe the workers are losing their rights and unemployed are growing . in the whole word the rich became more rich and poor more poor so i think that is class struggle and a good response is to give power to the workers , against multinationals and great corporations that starve the world.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Stupor Mundi'?
4 I like middle age history and i chose stupormundi because it is the second name of Federico II , an emperor who was a great enemy of the catholic church that divided a lot italian people
