Q: Hail Gorath.How do you do?I heard that it s rainy in Jyvaskyla
nowadays,Her lakes must be great at the moment
A: I'm doing rather ok at the moment. Yes, it's autumn here right now
and nature is at its darkest. Cold and rainy weather keeps creativity
high, I must say.
Q: Actually i havent received yet ,can you introduce your latest
release'The Polarity Axiom'?How are the reactions so far?
A: To say it shortly, The Polarity Axiom consists of 8 tracks/40
minutes of majestic black metal. When compared, for example, to our previous
album, the whole package is a bit more unpolished. The sounds aren't as
clinical as on Osiris-Typhon Unmasked and the artwork is also a lot
more simplified and darker this time.
Q: Are there any changes in the line up of Alghazanth?
A: Yes, there has been quite a few adjustments with the line-up. I
guess that the biggest changes happened quite shortly after the recording
sessions of Osiris-Typhon Unmasked when our lead guitarist Veilroth
(with whom we founded the band) was replaced by Infection. Also, Nebiros
was kicked out just some time ago so we are at the moment lacking a
vocalist. I don't mind such changes, though, because they all benefit the
band in the end anyway.
Q: It says in one of the interview that the name of the band is related
with a dream of yours.Can you tell more about it?Besides,is the name
Alghazanth has any other meanings as well?
A: Yes, this name was revealed to me in one of my dreams by a
deathbringer spirit in the shape of a white wolf. I think that this name is just
perfect for us even it is quite difficult to pronounce, write and
comprehend by other people. The name has a deep and dark symbolism and
therefore it represents our band as it is.
Q: What is the general lyrical theme of the last album'The Polarity
Axiom'?Did you chose any exact kind of depiction in your lyrical concept ?
A: The general idea in my lyrics has been almost exactly the same on
each of our releases. Only the shape and style of the texts vary. The
lyrics reflect my personal beliefs and views in their most Satanic form.
It's only natural to write about things that are close to your heart and
that revolve in your thoughts constantly. I aim to compose the lines in
a bit more obscure and methaphorical way than on most of the black
metal albums out there. By this I wish to give more room for the
reader's/listener's own interpretation even though the actual texts are about my
own belief and thougth patterns. The poetry on the new album is more
esoteric than on our previous ones and demands therefore more
concentration from the reader's point of view.
Q: I saw lyrics in some black metal bands(especially in mainstreamed
ones)which says I m war,i m this,i m that,i m bla Dont you think that it
must be something destructive,something immoral which will make the
normal listener throw up when he/she hears it?I mean something hatred
A: It depends on the band. I mean, for some bands this more
straight-forwarded style suits best and for some it doesn't. In our case, the
lyrics are at times aggressive and at times they are thought-provocative.
It's very important to have both kinds of bands in the global black
metal scene: those who blaspheme and agitate and those who spread and
maintain the wisdom of the Occult Path. Both contribute to the war against
religions because the first-mentioned awake sensations of hate and
Satanic unity and the latter help in the process of individuation (which is
the opposite of being a slave to religion).
Q: To you,who is the selected/wise listener?
A: Anyone who acknowledges the fact that black metal is Satan's music
and acts accordingly.
Q: Besides christianity what do you thing other ecclesiastical pigs?
A: Every single religious institution should be wiped off the face of
the planet. Religions are the worst enemy of individual progress which
is the very basis of spiritual evolution. I base my hatred towards
religions on the simple and cold fact that each time someone tells someone
other what to believe in, something has gone totally wrong. Progress
spawns from within and regression from the dogmas of others.
Q: Related with previous one,What is your opinion about islamic
countries?to be honest with you i hate anything coming from the fuckin deserts
of the south!Neither my country nor any other place in this fuckin
earth saw something useful from this fucks!all ecclesiastical morons
A: If you ask me, anyone who builds his/her life on a belief system
made and altered by man, deserves nothing more than the kiss of a
guilliotine on the neck. Regardless of their origin and race. And yes, this
definition fits also the majority of people in islamic countries.
Q: How would be your life if you were living in a world which has no
religional masses on it?
A: A lot more fulfilling. Religions affect your everyday life even if
you don't belong to the church or such. The twisted and unnatural ethics
of religions are so deeply rooted in the society that it is almost
impossible to escape their grasp.
Q: May you tell us how your personal journey into music began?How did
all get started?
A: It began by discovering the early works of Iron Maiden and Metallica
when I was about eleven or something. Quite soon after that Cannibal
Corpse and Deicide came into the picture and I guess that was the actual
breaking point. I bought drums and started playing for my own amusement
but when black metal came along, the need to create something concrete
was born. And here we are now.
Q: Is a new gig planned soon?
A: Not that soon because we don't have a vocalist at the moment. We are
currently looking for a new throat to join us so I guess that we'll be
functioning at full speed by the end of the year.
Q: Any words for your enemies?
A: Fuck off and die.
Q: And any words for your allies?
A: Hail Satan!
Q: Ok.Gorath,thanx a lot for grinding ,i wish the
best for Alghazanth!
A: Thank you Frost,for the support! Keep on blaspheming!
