1-Infernal blasphemic hails please give us a short introduction of IMMOLITH ?

We are an old school black metal band from central New Jersey in the US. Our drummer Warhead is most well known for his other band Abazagorath, who have been a part of the US Black Metal scene since 1995.

2-"IMMOLITH" why this name? Can you tell us more about the meaning ?

Like many black metal bands we draw influences from fantasy fiction like J.R.R. Tolkien and the like... Immolith comes from the role playing game Dungeons and Dragons, and is described as the result of dying demon's souls coalescing before they reach the abyss into an giant undead demon known as the Immolith.

3-What are the metal bands that influenced you ?

So many, but the top of the list would be Venom, Bathory, Celtic Frost, Darkthrone, and Dissection.

4-What kind of music do you listen to yourself ?

Lately I am always listening to either Watain, or Dissection... But I love all underground metal, old German Thrash metal, Old Florida/Swedish Death Metal, etc.

5-How is the metal scene in New Jersey ?

Not good. Metal in the US is weak for the most part. It is better then it was in the 1990's but there is still a lot of shit in the scene..

6-What are some of your non-musical influences?

History, Occult studies, and horror and fantasy fiction.

7-What do you think about the events that took place in Norway by many bands of the first wave of true black metal ? and can you tell us about ?

I understand their motivation, to rid Scandinavia of symbols of Christian oppression, but mourn the loss of such historic buildings whether they were churches or not. Murders also belong in jail.

8-What can you tell us about the songs that are available on your officiel myspace page ?

All 4 are what appear on our first debut CD Hymns to the Countess. I wrote all the music and lyrics, and hope it appeals to old school black metal fans.

9-What can you tell us about the EP Hymns to the Countess?

It is a promising start, and should give people a very good idea of what this band is about. We are satisfied with the production of the songs, and the fact that it has been so well received so far by the black metal community.

10- How do you write your music? Is there a set guideline or do you write what you feel as you go along?

Generally I will come up with some titles and lyrics first. To me this sets the mood or atmosphere that I will then try to generate while composing the guitar parts. Once I've established the basic collection of riffs for a song, I'll record them and present them to the band and we'll begin to add the drums and arrange the song structure as we feel is best.

11-What you have planned after recording of the EP Hymns to the Countess ?

We are already writing songs for our follow up full length record which I intend to call "Storm Dragon." We've got 4 songs in the works already. The title track "Storm Dragon", "A Pact of Blood, A Pact of Death", "Lord of Light", and "Serve and Descend." The goal for the full length will be 8 or 9 tracks which may potentially include a cover version of Darkthrone's "In the Shadow of the Horns."

12- Please explain the title and cover image of Hymns to the Countess ?

My concept for the EP began after I had written the lyrics to "Hymns to the Countess" which of course retells the tale of the Blood Countess, Elisabeth Bathory. I intended to include Venom's Countess Bathory, and also a Tormentor cover of their classic "Elisabeth Bathori." We could only obtain the license to include Venom's song, but in the end it still works as a tribute to Countess Bathory. Early on I contacted the model Lucifera Gorewhore and inquired about her services for the cover. I told her my vision, and she was great to work with. Within in days of our discussion she had arranged a set of photos for me to choose from for our cover.

13- How is the condition of your recording ?

We recorded the EP in my personal Carrion Crawler Studio. This is the first time I've done all the recording, production and mastering myself. While it isn't perfect, we are quite pleased with the final result. The full length will also be recorded this way, unless a label provides us with a budget to record elsewhere.

15- Any fav bands to get on stage with?

Any of the good USBM metal bands, such as Kult ov Azazel, Absu, Blood Storm, Dead Mountain, would be good shows for us. We have no real interest in playing shows outside of the Black Metal genre, it would only be on bills with other black metal bands.

16- What is the biggest change compared to your the debut ?

Our very first demo was recorded on a handheld digital MP3 recorder at the band's second rehearsal. While my studio is not up to the standards of a professional studio, I have close to 3,000 dollars invested into it between the PC, software, interface, microphones and so on. I think the sound and mix of the EP is far superior to the original demo, while still sounding very raw, and underproduced, as good black metal should.

17- What is your daily consumption amount of alcohol ?

HA! I don't drink every day, but when I do have beers, I will usually drink a 6 pack I suppose.

18- Latest news you can tell concerning IMMOLITH?

Really there is some exciting news on the horizon for us, an interview will be appearing online when Metal Maniacs magazine returns in September as a strictly web based publication. Also look for some news concerning Terrorizer magazine as well that I can't really discuss until Terrorizer publishes it.... Also the band has commissioned Luciferium War Graphics to create a "Slaughter the Legions" T-shirt that will be available from our website soon.

19- Why your drummer have not a corpse paint?

Warhead wore corpse paint early in his Abazagorath career, and has since moved past it. As a drummer and now our singer for this band as well, he is more comfortable without it. Ahazu and I on the other hand, feel wearing corpse paint is appropriate for us.

20- What is your goal and your target?

Our goal is to make the best black metal we can that we enjoy playing. If others support us we very much appreciate it, but if not we'll keep playing and recording regardless.

21- What is your opinion about this kind of black metal antihuman Black Metal ,NS Black Metal and Christian Black Metal?

I don't care for politics in Black Metal, and I have nothing but disdain for so called Christian Black Metal. That is the worst joke of all, and completely ridiculous.

22- Thanks alot for sharing your time with me ,and good look for you any final blasphemic or satanic words or comment here ?

Thank you for your support, Hail Satan!

Sataroth support the underground and the extréme metal , Black metal has glory

Interview With Esphares

1-Infernal blasphemic hails please give us a short introduction of Esphares ?

In summary a solo project of Black metal atmospheric founded in 2006 by myself ... I propose a very focused nature with both a parallel with the theme this time is more hate ... hatred towards the "genre" human thinking that humanity is the center of the universe. .. In short, I denounced this megalomania among other unhealthy!

2-"Esphares" why this name? Can you tell us more about the meaning ?

Esphares written Ezphares normally and is a name of a God appears in the Necronomicon in a incantation... I can not tell you more but no clear link to the themes in Esphares ...

3-What are the metal bands that influenced you ?

It is very diverse ... but the main bands that inspired me throughout my "little" musical go to Setherial Troll through Tartaros and Summoning etc ...

4-What kind of music do you listen to yourself ?

of course mainly i listen extreme metal ... Black metal / Death metal tips and also Trash Rock! I have a inspiration for depressive black metal these days ...

5-What is your fav CD at the moment ?

the 1st album of Setherial titled "Nord" ... a pearl, ... A great surge towards distant horizons and majestic!

6-how is the metal scene in France ?

The metal scene in France to tell the truth slowly emerges ... well say that there have always been quality groups in France, but many of them preferred to stay in the shadows ... It is only since past 5 years in fact that the French group will take the trouble to reveal ... Of course it must be said that the metal, especially metal exrême french remained virtually unknown in the world, except the group as Seth Agressor or so ... but the last few years we can hear from groups like Malleus maleficarum,Nehema,Sombre présage,Epheles and many more ... In short, there's good in France but we must dig!

7-What are some of your non-musical influences?

I think I explained a large part in the summary Esphares but if you want .... except hatred because of the stupid human things I m'inspire softer such as fairy legends of Brittany by example, its representation in images gives me inspiration in my music ... In fact, it may seem bizarre but the images gives me the musical inspiration and where I live, I served ...

8-What do you think about the events that took place in Norway by many bands of the first wave of true black metal ? and can you tell us about ?

I think not much really except that Grishnack probably had his reasons for acting that way! For churches burned say that when you live in a country with its own culture, with its beliefs etc ... then that fundamentalists killing your wives and children by promoting world peace and imposing on your land attempting to overcome centuries of culture, a hatred perpetuated from generation to generation and some people may after a while crack and hostile to society! Norway has a pagan culture at the base and there are many people who hold that it is aware!

9- what can you tell us about the songs that are available on your officiel myspace page ?

The songs available on my Myspace page are from my 1st demo "par delà le fleuve de la mort" ... The playlist includes 5 tracks on 6 of my demo ...

10-what can you tell us about the demo CD "Par delà le fleuve de la mort..." ?

"Par delà le fleuve de la mort" is a demo in which I described the death as a form of soft material and guiding me look beyond dark and cold and countered persuading me to join for ever ... This is basically a metaphor to say that humans themselves are the way of death by being blinded by their illusions ... These illusions which lead them to self-destruction!

11-How do you write your music? Is there a set guideline or do you write what you feel as you go along?

it was very spontaneous ... Before writing anything, I developed what the general theme of this current demo, then when a piece was finished, I wrote the text ...

12-what you have planned after recording of the demo "Par delà le fleuve de la mort..." ?

I currently go to compose what will be my 1st album ... I say no more for now because I am still a bit undecided!

13-Please explain the title and cover image of "Par delà le fleuve de la mort..." ?

As I explained earlier in my text I realized death that guides me through dark countered ... What lies beyond the river is death, pure and simple ... the end of the expedition and the beginning of a new era ... The cover of the CD is a small part of contrés described but basically this is an illusion ... This landscape can be attractive but in fact what I explain in my 1st ... This album will not be as beautiful ....!

14-Did you find a label how you record your music ?

I did some minor approach and had 2 or 3 contacts with labels UG (underground) french that would be ready to distribute my album but this is currently not my priority, I want above all to please myself and express in music from what I have to say ... We shall see all this later!

15-How the condition of your recording ?

I recorded "Beyond ...." home with a digital studio ... (with roughly means little) I wrote, composed and recorded this demo in 1 month ... The "Artwork" was the longest despite its simplicity ... What was difficult was the choice of images for the cover, it was a drawing of the subject of much Esphares without revealing too ...

16-Any gigs or show ?

Yet say how gigs alone would be difficult, pffff .... Who knows, may later be but I'm not pressed if a little frustrated ... I have chosen to be the sole member of Esphares and substance and I am ...

17-Any fav bands to get on stage with?

I would get on stage with Limbonic art, but already they even leave their corner paumé is not won!

18- thanks alot for sharing your time with me ,and good look for you any final words or comment ?

mmmhhh ..... I think i have say the essentially ....

Tools Of Torture is an Italian Brutal Death metal / Grind this band born in 2006 two members of Tools Of Torture have already played in Bestial Devastation Lord Destroyer – Guitars and Genobile (Animal) – Vocals Elsewhere when you listen to Faith - Purification – Execution you found many things who you remember to bestial devastation Faith - Purification – Execution contains eleven tracks five tracks from the demo (2007) Mastectomised & Infibulated , Jigsaw Torture , Lacerated Entrails ,Divine Defloration Tools Of Torture's logo was made by Mike Majewski from Devourment (US) ,the cover image of Faith - Purification – Execution explain exactly the name of this album about tortures used by medieval Saint Inquistion: it's a concept album.The title in particular shows the three main steps on the trail of the inquisited The cover is about the last step of this trial, the public execution, with clerks and monks praying around the victim, enraged crowd behind them and, of course, the executioner
valid blast beats and fast brutal death riffing with grind riffs and sometime many low riffs guitar Tools Of Torture have Bestial Devastation flavor because some moment when I listen to this album you notice that the vocals of Genobile (Animal) and the guitar playing but the vocals on bestial devastation is low and very growls and high-pitched with fast tempos and the difference is bestial devastation use two vocals Torturer and Animal and this was effective in the line up of Bestial Devastation in any case I notice that Tools of Torture is the expansion of Bestial Devastation but Tools Of Torture was proved their pure brutal torture at last show and they were at show with a great name as Rompeprop , Katalepsy ,Sordid Clot ,Dorment Carnivore and more fucking other bands
I advice this pure brutal and torture full length to all Bestial Devastation fans and all brutal death /grind metal and Faith - Purification – Execution is the first full length of Tools Of Torture soon they working for for next release
