Salut Jack.D.Ripper ,how do you do nowadays?What are the latest news>from Norwegian Morgul’s camp?I COULD SAY THAT I’M DOING FINE BUT IT >WOULD>BE A LIE.THINGS COULD BE A LOT WORSE THOUGH SO I TRY TO LOOK AT THE BRIGHT >SIDE. AS OF NOW I’M JUST WAITING FOR THE NEW ALBUM TO HIT THE MARKET AND >SEE HOW IT DOES.> >2. You must be working on a new album at the moment,so,what kind of>clues you can reveal here about this expected album?I HAVEN’T REALLY>STARTED WORKING ON ANYTHING YET. ONLY A FEW MINOR THINGS. BUT I THINK IT’S >SAFE TO SAY THAT LIKE BEFORE I WILL HOLD BACK NOTHING.> >3. There are exact sound differences between the old and new Morgul>releases,i mean ,for an illustration;one who listens “Lost in Shadows >Grey”and then listens “Sketch of the Supposed Murderer”will probably >shocked by all means that are created by this winds of change.How can >you comment on>this new direction of the band?IT’S JUST NATURAL PROGRESS. I DON’T WANT TO >DO THE SAME THING TWICE. AND YOU LEARN EVERY TIME YOU’RE IN THE STUDIO SO >THINGS GET BETTER> >4. And do you care about the negative comments that you had to face>after such kind of different albums?What is the meaning of the term >”Feedback”for you?I HAVEN’T REALLY HAD ANY NEGATIVE FEEDBACK ABOUT >IT.IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THE FIRST MORGUL RELEASE WENT PRETTY MUCH >UNNOTICED.> >5. Were you bored from the black metal cliches or what made you to>direct Morgul in to its new way?On the other hand do you define this as >a kind of proggress or is there any other term that you can employ here >to label it?I JUST WANTED TO TRY DIFFERENT THINGS AND NOT HAVE ANY >LIMITS.

Among the all Morgul releases, “Lost In Shadows Grey”is my fave of>course.So,i suppose,you may give us your fave Morgul album or song?I >THINK>BOTH “THE HORROR..” AND “SKETCH…” ARE REALLY GOOD ALBUMS AND THE NEW ONE >IS GOOD TOO.I THINK MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MORGUL SONG IS THE MURDERING MIND. >I HATE THE LOST IN SHADOWS GREY ALBUM.I MEAN, THE SONGS THEMSELVES ARE >OK,FULL OF CLICHES THOUGH, BUT THE PRODUCTION ISN’T WORTH SHIT.> >7. Returning to the “Sketch of the Supposed Murderer”,to be honest,i>found its drum sound a bit weak,or lets say,a bit more mechanic.Hoping >that you perceive what i try to mean,i want to ask that what kind of >drum sound should we expect in the new Morgul album?Will there be a >program drums or will it be recorded by a real drummer?THE DRUMS ARE >WAY MORE COMPACT AND BASIC SOUNDING. I HAD TOM CUPER HELP ME OUT ON THE >DRUMS.(HE’S MY MYSTERIOUS PRETEND FRIEND…) SO IT’S A MIX OF SEQUENSER >DRUMS AND ACOUSTIC DRUMS.> >8. What are your ideas on the new,modern black metal scene?Be it in>Norway or somewhere else?SOME GOOD AND SOME BAD. AS ALWAYS. IT’S ALL >JUST A>MATTER OF TASTE.> >9.

THEY COMPLETELY BLEW MY MIND. I >WAS ALLREADY A FAN OF PETER JACKSON AND I LOVE BRAINDEAD.I WAS VERY >SURPRISED WHEN I HEARD HE WAS DOING THE LORD OF THE RINGS BUT ALSO VERY >GLAD CAUSE I WAS SURE IT WAS GONNA BE AWESOME.> >11. Returning to Morgul,the latest album were featuring a Kiss>cover.Will there be any cover song in the coming album?And what was the >reason for chosing a Kiss song to cover?THERE’S NO COVER SONG ON THE >NEW ALBUM.
