Interview with Tenebrarium 2014

Goodday! all
first thanks for taking a moment to enduldge yourself into this day of questioning! 
lets start by asking how are you all doin?

1 You you are a symphonic black metal band whom  would you say are your prime influences `? 

When we began our first influence was Dimmu Borgir, cause was the only band that all 4 agreed to make covers of. Later on, a shit load of influences came by, like Old Man Child, Emperor, some Sweeden DM like Edge of Sanity, Opeth, some depressive suicidal like Silencer, and lately, some Djent bands like Tesseract, mostly because of our drummer, who´s a big fan of all that weird shit XD

2 You recently signed with Seneseless life recors how did that deal come to point?

They contact us, a month ago or so, we don´t really know how they find us, I assume it was Youtube, but it was exactly what we were looking for: an independent label with great tastes in this kind of music, so we accepted without a second thought.

3 your latest album  Spiritual Darkness and the Mysteries of Heaven Released: 2013   how has the response and reaction been towards it ?

Overall, it was a good response, we only distributed it online, we reached 921 downloads, we are optimist about reaching a 1000 by the end of the year. And that for us will be some sort of “commercial success”. In this country, only Thrash and Heavy Metal are accepted, there´s no support for Extreme bands.

4 If you could own another bands werdobe  which band ?
Emperor, because we like that sober and stylish attitude, we don´t use corpsepaint or crosses, nothing like that, we want our music to talk. So, Emperor will work for us just fine.

5 Whats your favorite alcoholic beverage ?

6 summer or winter?
Winter! Without a doubt, mostly because I sweat too much in Summer… hate that shit

7 cats or dogs?
Dogs, I like their company
8 pizza or burgers?
9 First inspiration? that made you start to want to play metal
Queen make me want to play music, but Black Sabbath (with Tony Martin) makes me play metal 
10 dream band to tour or play with?
Cradle Of Filth, mostly because they have a chick at least XD

12 how drunk do you usually get when going onto stage ?
Because of my instrument, 0 alcohol for me, because you can miss the keys easily, but my bro play the guitar and the fucker usually steps in the stage stone-drunk but never misses a note… I envy him! XD
13  favorite horror movie?
The Relic, The Howling Series, and even if it’s not horror, the Godzilla series

14 Where do you see the band in 10 years from now?
Hopefully, touring Europe, recording in Argentina and being a well-respected band, and if everything fits, with the same members.

15  who  was the mind behind your recent artwork?
All 4 of us, that’s because the whole band writes music, Monty makes all the rhythmic patterns, Javier (my brother, guitar) comes with material just like me, and Jejo (vocals) writes all the lyrics. We are deeply immersed in what each one is making so we can suggest changes in the stuff, even if it’s something that I am not writing.
16 If you were to gig at Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizarding 
how would your set list look like and what would be your first impression from opening the letter to arriving! 

Our Setlist for Hogwarts will be depressive with our most funeral doom material, mostly because all the time somebody dies in there! It´s really an unsafe place for children! XD I don´t know what expression can I make in that situation, possibly smile because I wil be drunk XD

17 if you could say one thing to any Harry Potter character, what would you say and to who?
To Ronald Wesley: Die fucker

19 Which festivals are your favorite to attend ?

Here in Argentina there´s not really a great choice of festivals that I like to go, if I were in Europe, Wacken
Lets see how the band work on stage !

20 a loud drunk fan jumps up on stage, secrurity is away , while you're in the middle of a song,
what do you do? 
A  Ask him politely to go down, 
B Push him down or throws him down( Marduk style)
C Smash the fucker in the head with your instrument (watain style)
D Ignores him
I´ll invite him to sing with us!! XD if it gets violent I use a mawashi geri and continuing playing jajaja

21 Favorite album of 2013 ?
Persefone – Spiritual Migration
And thats it for this time thank your for taking the time to chat with us we hope to hear more of you!!!

Vallenfyre - Splinters (The album we all been waiting for)

Vallenfyre is a project with members from various known bands out there!
raging from Paradise lost, My Dying bride , and Last but not least At the gates.
yes ever since their first album A fragile king was out iv'e been looking into more info about the band, their first full length was a mind blowing experience! at least in the the old school scene,
the band sound is very characterized by hard hitting drums, and groovy guitar parts...
old school death metal in its best form in my eyes.
starting up with their new album Splinters just by looking at the first trailer that was given I was very pleased with the little it showed...
anyhow as the first track appears scabs! Its a crushing swarm of heavy guitar riffs , a though fight to break.
classic slayer beat with a lovely blast beat mixed in the middle,
really gives the song that extra sting like lemon juice on steaks...
Vallenfyre has in my eyes always been what Ive been admiring in old era of death metal , bone trembling drums, harsh brutal vocals, and Erie tremolo picked riffs,
track numerous 2 seem to be the next hard hitting as the silence breaks with heavy guitars, groovy and tight is just a start ...  always a fun ride to hear  mr Adrian Erlandsson pounding the drums...

Every track on this record fucking slays
hard hitting death metal in its finest form...

Vallenfyre is really gonna make it to the top !
this album proves to be so much more than just bone griding death metal,
but there seem to be this beast is hiding behind the door,
each track is like a book full of judgments  !
just waiting for the wrong person to open. it and be blasted away!!
Splinters is a fine piece of  work indeed !
a truly masterpiece if I may say so!

Sabaton - Heroes

There has been a lot of talk and rumors about this new album how its gonna sound and will it live up to Carolus Rex the short answer is No , But before you go all nazy on me keep in mind how much things has changed since 2012 when the album came out! still Sabaton remains the same.
As most people know Sabaton are probably one of the most famous bands in Sweden if not the most famous live acts around the world, love or hate them but Sabaton are back with their new album Heroes judging by the fans reaction there has been a very known mixed feelings,
I remember when I started listing to them back in 2007 when they had just done Coat of arms, and of course you look back on the discography and find on and other you like...
well lets move over to the part everyone want to read about!

Heroes is a breath of fresh air,
I always enjoyed the classical song structure from Sabaton
their lovely mix between high up beat songs and their slower songs.
regardless their new album is not just a breath of fresh air it really does something different in some ways.
I think we all know that this is Sabaton more then ever before but some will of course still find Carolus Rex as the best I don't blame them.. CR was amazing and so powerful in many ways
 I can't really overcome that, but I guess 2014 is the year of slower songs,
it would seem that playing in 200 bpm would easy get boring for some
but then again each band do their thing...
However their first song To hell and back reminds me still a lot of Korpiklaani folk metal, mostly the way the keyboards find their way and the melodies, not bad but I still was expecting something other but hey no deal breaker.

moving on as I been listing to the album back and forth, and even as we write this..
but overall its still the classic old sing along sabaton yes the album is way more poppish then the previous but I guess its meant that way. Since Sabaton is a very good if I may say sing along band...
and could proboly fit quite easy in Melodifestivalen although it wouldn't be fair since I guess the winners would be very obvious!

Joakim and Per still remains the same writers as before, and thats why I still think people can't blame the new guys Chris and Tobbe, Hannes are all doing a good job,
the drumming is actually more distinct and heavier since Hannes has a very different playing style then Daniel did but still he keeps the same Sabaton "beat"
 even if I can feel some songs feels a bit slow its washed away by Soldier of 3 Armies a strong and crushing  tune ... that really delivers what fans want to head bang to ! the guitar work is very smooth, and flexible 
still Joakim's manly voice is dominating the song. 

Overall the album is a strong and good Sabaton album... I would surely give this album a few spins in the cd before i truly make up my mind...
as it does prove to be a good hard hitting Sabaton album.. 
fans can debate as much as they like but Heroes is here to stay!!
now just to be clear I am not that much of  a die hard sabaton fan, but I did enjoy their previous Carolus rex a lot 
and I am sure I will grow to love this new !
