Black Communion Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

Cheers!!! Here Necropervertor, guitars & vocals from Black Communion, by now just returning to the rehearsal room since we have practically 5 months without any rehearsal! Putting things together and recovering all the time this pandemic took away...

2.This year you have released a full length and also where a part  of a split, musically how do they differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

Personally the BC releases I like more are the Split with destroyer attack, the Funeral Incantation EP and the recently released MIASMIC MONSTROSITY, these 3 last recordings defer from demos and other releases because we started song-writing about death, Graves, Cemeteries and the darkness of the afterlife...

3.A lot of your lyrics cover satanic and occult themes, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in the dark arts?

At BC we all are interested in Black arts, ancient rites, weird cults and Lovecraftian literature, I think those topics are the ones that identify a Band as a Black metal act so we wanted to follow that path of exaltation of demonic legions and blasphemy, as I mentioned on last question right after the FUNERAL INCANTATION EP we're more interested about death , Graves and afterlife horrors...

4.What are some of the other lyrical topics and subjects  the band has explored over the years with the music?

Besides Blasphemy and Demonolatry... death, Lovecraft literature, horror, gore...

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Black Communion'?

Just wanted a name based on our initial Black metal influences, nothing special... Just one day I came up with that name and the drummer and Guitarist back then liked it.

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

Artwork was commissioned to a talented person in Peru ( Temple of Kaligat arts) who actually transformed into art the ideas I had about a demonic figure formed by the emanations of the dead, on medieval times people thought that the miasma was the cause of all sickness so we just wanted to portray a death-like figure coming from the deceased.

7.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

We played with mighty Mystifier from Brazil in 2015 it was killer! Also we played last December in a couple of cities near to Bogota ( capital city of Colombia) people was kinda impacted that a band from our city can do such extreme sound, this because our region has not a huge metal-rock tradition... Performance in stage is basically spikes, blood and war paint!

8.Recently you where a part of a split with 'Destroyer Attack', what are your thoughts on the other band that had participated on the recording?

Destroyer attack is the band from Jonathan Amaya who also owns TANATOFOBIA PRODS. he was the first person who released BC material (morbid defilement demo + envenoming the Graves live tape) we feel infinite respect to him and his horde... Hail DESTROYER ATTACK!!!

9.You also have done some 'Von' and 'Impetigo' covers, what was the decision behind doing your own version of their songs?

VON cover represents our devotion for old Black acts and is one of our main influences, also we honor a great gore/death/grind act such as Impetigo... We decided to start editing our songs with horror movie samples just because of them,  so basically we praise Black and death metal through exaltating those bands.

10.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of war, black and death metal?

Always have been maniacs around the world buying our releases, people from South America, USA, Spain, Germany, Mexico, Canada have been always in contact with us so I'd say that we have acquire sort or international recognition... We hope our music will be widely distributed by DUNKELHEIT PROD. On this recent release so I hope even more people around the globe will be in touch...

11.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?

Mortum plays vocals and guitar at a local black thrash band called SOLDADOS DEL INFIERNO, Tortor and me besides BC we're doing a new death metal project called FUNERAL VOMIT , will release something really soon...

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

Probably touring Europe or South America when it comes to shows, We're not planning or song-writting a new release, bnad will be on hold when it comes to that but actively rehearsing for maybe upcoming shows but I have in mind maybe a compilation taking tracks from EP Funeral Incantation + Ominous malignant EP... Let's see if any label is interested in releasing it...

13.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?

We started strongly influenced by VON, IMPALED NAZARENE, BEHERIT, BATHORY and PROFANATICA, we keeped the Black Metal sound but now with a new lyrical content related to horror and death as I mentioned previously.

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

Keep supporting your local bands and favorite acts! Buy their records! Thanks to DUNKELHEIT PRODUKTIONEN for releasing our Full length and thanks to worldwide maniacs that have been in contact with us!!! Thank you for this interview and supporting underground Black Metal...
