Black/Death Metal was the early step of what we know now as "Black Metal". Before Norwegian Black Metal combos existed a little extreme scene was raising with utterly dark and terrorifying music. Bands such as Profanaitica, Beherit, Archgoat, Von would introduce the world to a real nightmare. Nearly 15 years later, Germany enfanted a new Damien in this scene, taking all the keys of their goat father and bringing chaos a bit further. The Grand NECORS CHRISTOS was born under "Necromantic Doom" demo in '92. Mors Dalos Ra (guitar, vokills, keys) answered the infernal inquisition
how are you today ? Ready to cross a graveyard full of questions ?
Well, shall we begin to consult and invoke the grand NECROS CHRISTOS without any further delays though…
Let's start the interview giving us
some fresh news, expected for your new release "Triune Impurity Rites"
I saw that you're looking for a new
drummer, how does it come and did you get some interesting person so far
Could you give us some words about
the early day of NECROS CHRISTOS ? Why did you create this band and why
did you choose to play a kind of mid tempo Black/Death Metal ?
to you how can a band like your could evolve in the future ? I mean you
play a pretty personal Metal, that could lot all its magic if you change
the formula, for instance I'm thinking of Aeternus or Enslaved that came
with very original debut release than moved towards strange musical influences…Do
you think that NECRO CHRISTOS could record many more alike albums ?
Of course not with the same concept as on “TIR”, but yes, at least one more record shall emerge to exist. I know what you mean though as our style seems very repetitive, but it obviously doeth serve a higher purpose. The transcendental, ritualistic feel is omnipresent and I want to catch souls instead of showing our abilities by putting hundred fuckin`riffs a song. Who the fuck does find any shining moments in those senseless blastbeat Death Metal combos caring for a jazzlike musicianship…? Death Metal is the key…
is you relation with death ? What is your position about life after death,
do you believe that man is nothing less than ashes when dying or do you
believe in any spiritual second life ?
|May I say that NECROS CHRISTOS is one
of the most original finding and one of the "freshest" band in
the B.M/D.M scene ? Your band reminds me a bit of early Aeternus debut MCD
or even Deynonichus early albums, do you agree with me and what are the
bands that influenced your composition ?
No, I do not agree as both bands have simply no meaning for what is the essence OF NECROS CHRISTOS. Although it might sound a bit strange, but in first aspect I`m influenced mostly by Persian and Arabian Folk music as those of Hessamoddin Seraj, Davod Azad, Shahram Nazeri or Munir Bashir. Secondly comes German and Italian Baroque as of Bach and Pergolesi for example. Metal of course, but I'm listening much more to the works of bands as Black Sabbath, Coven, Mercyful Fate than ordinary Death Metal albums…
Could you explain
us the concept behind "Triune Impurity Rites" as it seems a
bit complex and rather evolved ? How long was it to reach the final lyrics
and arrangements in each song ?
Could you detail
a bit he meaning behind the cover of "Triune Impurity Rites"
? Is there any meaning behind the number 5 of the front candles ? What
is the secret behind the eagle leg in the middle of the tabernacle ?
is behind Sepulchral Voices ? Is I the band label or so ? I haven't seen
any other releases ?
Actually, they released stuff before as i.e. the unbelievable Charon 7inch. I guess it is no secret anymore that the persons involved in Sepulchral Voice belong to the uttermost titans of German Black Metal diabolism named…
Mors Dalos Ra and Black Shepherd Ov
Doom are also involved in a Death Metal project called "Drowned",
could you briefly introduce this band ? I saw that you're signed on Nuclear
War Now! for the upcoming vinyl. How does Drowned sound as I never listened
to the materials ?
|I saw that you've 2 DVDs in your discography
that are "Bunkertor 4 Rehearsals" and "Night Of The Unmutilated
Ritual", would you speak a bit about them ? Are they video or just
audio materials ? I think the "Night…" was shot in Berlin
for a live wasn't it ?
No real DVDs with a complex menue or whatever, we got them out for free to friends and brothers who weren't able at that time to witness NECROS CHRISTOS live. Their content isn't worthy enough to waste more words about `em…
seems that old school Black/Death Metal combos are coming back as Archgoat,
Profanatica have released new albums while NWN Production is re-editing
the first Blasphemy's album on DLP. So what is your regard on that come
back and have you listened to the new Profanatica and Archgoat ?
What does Satanism
means to you in your music ? Do you believe that playing dark Metal helped
your visions and search in this left hand path way ?
Thanks a lot
for the answers, close the coffin with a last thought…
