hukutus nadiirit; interview
Today, I have the pleasure of sharing a conversation with Aoghori, the vocalist of “transmutating extreme metal” act Hukutus. Hello guys! Let’s kick off this interview by introducing Hukutus and the meaning of your band name. Hi there! Hukutus means the act of drowning in Finnish, a forced act, I might add. It’s not really specific what is being drowned and into what, I like that. It could be happening within one’s subconscious or it could be just a brutal act of baptism. It’s also a good introduction to what we’re aboutRead More
Avathar interview / Support Black Metal
In 2000 the epic/folk black metal horde Avathar was born leading to numerous outstanding releases. I’ve had the opportunity to inquire 3 of the members who share an in-depth introduction of their craft. Meet Witch King (vocals), Scatha (keyboards & vocals) and Ar-Pharazôn (wind instruments). It’s been around 6 years since the release of your latest demo “Dark Paths.” How have you been doing during this extensive period of time? Scatha: Where should I start… We’ve been working on our upcoming release, more or less. There has been lineup changes etc.Read More

In today’s installment I introduce German black metal act Cruda Sorte in possibly the longest and most insightful interview that I’ve ever conducted so far.

Winter is upon us all and if there is one band that I instantly feel like it portrays its severe beauty through their frostbitten sound, it would be Finnish act Lathspell and their blackened incantations.

The new album is nearly finished and we are looking forward to playing a few live shows during the coming spring. Let me start off by asking you what exactly your band name refers to and does itRead More

Today, I would like to introduce you an interview that is very different from the previous ones that I have conducted so far.
