1-what the band want to speak through your own name sekhmet is there some special reason for it?
No. We´ve used this name since we were very young. We took it from Satanic bible. After some time we feel that this name is good for us because under the name Sekhmet there´s plenty of hatred, revenge, blood of enemy. It is what we want, what we feel too.
2--the world panorama is a decadence the bad influence of the religions politics false society values show to us a kind of psychological regression the people are blind don´t get watch your own mind degradation what´s your opinion about all that?
I think that problem is in media. IN this time we speak about good. And do you think that christian people are good when they kill x milion poeple in beliefs of Christ. Do you think that disco and techno young people are good? More than less maybe 90% use drugs and degradate moral behaviour. I ask a question why is bad to be proud of my life´s way, family, my blood, my nation, securite of nature, my opinions about antichrist. When you say it aloud or in public you will have sign of NS man or Child of Satan. It is crazy…
3- do you believe in spiritual forces can exert influence under us, or we are owners of our destiny ?
No i do not believe in these things. I know that we see and feel something sometimes and somewhere but we are the ones who can build our future – our destiny. Sometimes I am thinking about that. What is above me, who gives me solution that i will do and not do, But all the time this situation finishes in the way, that only my brain has to do the last solution.
4-what the band influences ? Is there specific bands, books, movies, themes, personalities?
Lyrics of Sekhmet are my and Abaddon´s work. More than less is from our minds. I do not feel any influence in this way. I can see that i am not so good in writing of lyrics. I am writing still the same but i use different words.Haha , But i tis my opinion. Eh … Abaddon is better but now he is not our vocalist. Hope that new vocalist will understand our way and write great lyrics with deep sense. We will see.
Our music is a different problem. Me and Warlord compose our own infernal songs and of course we both listen to Black metal. So sometimes you can hear some influences. But it is not a purpose. And of course we want to do the best for us and Sekhmet.
5-how do you see the homosexuality on metal scene? do you see homosexuality on metal scene like a contradiction? with this kind of point of view in past times this kind of point of view was unthinking what´s your opinion?
I dont like this illnes, It is against nature´s laws. It is something what is bad. It is the reason why they cannot do any reproduction. Nature knews it.
When i know some bad news about band or members in some band so my opinion is negative. I dont like them. Black metal must be true and not other filths, the world is full of it. If some homosexual did a good music, for example like Gaahl and Gorgoroth, so i would like his music still but i would not support him more. If i knew that Aria by Slayer is christian man so i would not support him. And you know that each of them like Slayer. We can not do compromises. Of course it is important if we talk about people or about their music. World is full of metal bands so i don´t need to support all. Who has a band give a link to other people, So please don´t show us false faces.
6-what is the opinion of the band about devil subject how the band see the vision of some religions about the devil as the root or the essence of all evil in the universe in mankind in our ordinary life ? is there the possibility of the man human being be the devil?
Man cannot be devil but his behaviour can be devillish. Devil doesnt exist. If you believe in Devil or Satan you must believe in God, Jessus Christ, Alah etc… Satan is essence, feelings, weapon against humanity. Jessus Christ´s sheeps kill x milion people and many people think that he is good. Haha fuck off!! Satanic laws and ideology are very important for me and my life but it doesnt mean that i think that devil lives in hell. I am devil, You can be devil. I tis real Devil. Satan is weapon of chaos and after it that world can begin again. I am a realistic man. If there was more after my death so i would change my mind. But it is late!!! hahahaha
7-talk about Czech Republic metal scene?
What can i say… We have a many good bands like Maniac Butcher which begun to play again after ten years, So many young men can see their live show in this period too and it is fantastic. We have more great bands of course like Sator Marte, Detonator 666, old Masters Hammer, V.A.R.. These and other bands show us that everything is not only a shit. Because more than less fans, metal heads, bussines labels and many bands are only posers, who see only popularity, money, image, hatered on the internet - like i say- comfortable evil Hahahaha. Of course many things of them are important but you must go in your way. After long time you will know if it is true or not for you. I want to say that you or your band, zine, label can be popular but you dont have to be a part of trends. Great example is Watain.Only few people know them 3-4 years ago. Now they are a very popular band in the world but they didnt change their minds, opinion. They are up for their true Lives and music. It is Watain!!!
But this problem is everywhere and isnt important if you ask someone from Malaysia, Italy, Czechia, or Norway …
8-currently which is the ideology behind sekhmet lyrics?
Still the same, hatred against christianity and other beliefs, death, life, power of nature. It is objective. Better to ask what about this or this song. Because some songs are very strong for me or Abaddon etc …
9--last words ?
Thanx for your support and interest in my band SEKHMET. Baphomet shows you the way where u must destroy our enemies. Stay true and in darkness of this world.

1-elven has a woman in your line up how the band see a woman in your own line up? in other bands?make difference the metal scene is very sexist?
BERG:I think metal is for everyone if a woman is a good musician or she´s naturally talented loves metal i don´t understand why she couldn´t be part of the metal scene or even better the diversity can stimulate and make evolve the whole genre and finally metal women are almost always beautiful he-he!...in our case we chose to have a female voice in ELVEN because even if we partially dedicate to an extreme genre we love also melody and atmosphere and i think the female voice is naturally more related with these ad express these better the feeling we had with with lvy´s voice was almost immediate the work we´ve done till now has been always appreciated she also writes all lyrics for ELVEN and she does it in a way we love suggesting appropriate atmospheres and uses history and legend like metaphors to tell todays reality she gives the meaning of what we play that´s it and she revealed an excellent responsible for nthe band too so it´s even better right? he-he!...)
HAMMER:female singers have been widely increasing lately trying to copy or be an imitation os styles like those of nightwish or epica it´s kinda fashion well this is not case why can´t metal consider women playing or singing in a band? as to me there are women able to kick the ass of some goats sold as musicians
IVY: we are very close in and out of the band and we work both having fun and giving each other trust and respect is metal scene very sexist? I have two answers:1) people like us are not interested in this since we consider first of all ability and heart in what one´s doing I know metal girls of superior level that´s why can´t accept the sexist question: 2) the opposite consideration is that in the last years king business has inverted the situation and right now very often a strong scenic presence and a female voice- even absolutely insignificant-over all the instruments are enough to put up bands that have really too little to say to the audience like on tv in conclusion worlds always been sexist and this will last until we give this question an importance I think music is world´s mirror somehow the mixture of genres is everywhere metal scene is part of all this so... try to say where metal was 20 years ago is ridiculous even more than impossible hey we are everywhere,boys,accept it:girls power... with love,he-he!
ILDEN:ivy´s presence in ELVEN is very important a priori the fact that she a woman it´s only an advantage because it gives us the possibility of different points of view personally,I don´t think it makes any difference whether there are women or not in other bands too because being a good musician it doesn´t depend on the sex if the metal scene is very sexist... well.I think it´s the case to think about it...
2- how is the band opinion about ancient civilizations as egypt.greece,rome, etc where the human beign had apex in culture,science and technology?is there some similitude between ancient and contemporaneous civilization in values?
HAMMER:technology´s in constant progress the only problem is that the ancient one was useful most of all to satisfy primary needs the actual one serves peoples whims
IVY:sometimes it seems that we really involved and not evolved we are robots(remember kraftwerk?) without technology 90% of the modern western tecnologized population won´t be alse to survive ancient values are forgotten for many reasons but sadly we are still good in making war
BERG:the romans were great conquerors egyptians were spiritually and mentally above others and of the greeks I really love their gods pantheon and mythology but I dont´see any point of contact between modern civilizations and those ancient and rich cultures
ILDEN:all these civilizations have been pillars of world´s history but not its definite apex,perhaps only in their age I think that now we are at our apex in culture/science/technology(even if there are big differences between the populations)as to similitudes...yes there are:rome began decadence when its politics became a receptacle of corrupted and worms...I think you´ve heard talking about berlusconi so you can see that we haven´t changed so much...
3-the band talk about folklore how do you see phantasy in the air worldwide people are living in a big lie the truth never is revealed?
IVY:who´s able to read between the lines will get truth this is also what every tale and story teaches us ins´t perhaps fantasy the mantle that covers reality?
HAMMER:it is not necessary everything to be clear and perfect to tell stories it´s never been and never will be
ILDEN:in this period indeed above all in music fantasy is generally too little if compared to the 60-70 period fortunately it´s not the rule(but the effort to make it such is big enough)there are good bands and not only bands that are able to extract a high quality situations/reality and thanks to internet they all have the possibility to bring thier estrus where they can´t do it physically
4-which age of the humanity would you like to lived?
BERG: at the time of the roman empire or at the medieval times. I could also tell you in the 900 in the 50s in chicago!
IDEN:I don´t mind our age and period even if it´s very confused and complex sometimes time ago I was thinking that it could have been cool to live perhaps during the middle ages or in ancient egypt but having studied better those periods their epic and romantic aspects become weaker considering the high level of everyday life difficulties
IVY:thracian celtic and babylonian cultures fascinate me I´m curious in specific places and cultures rather than precise moments in history itself but it could have been nice to me living also at the end of 1800 in paris
HAMMER: any age(even the present one but with more decent politics where church is absent!but also middle ages
5-would you like to change the story of some legend that you have admiration?
BERG:I would make ulysses go back home sooner and faster he-he!
IDEN:not for now I consider them nice as they are
IVY:I would have chosen a different punishment for prometheus I would have horribly cursed neptune the raper instead of his poor victim the beautiful medusa...
HAMMER: no otherwise they wouldn´t be legends but regular stories
6- in folklore,legends, we can see the existence of many beigns in real life in the universe the band believes another form of life beyond human beign life another form of life is make believe?
IVY: it´s a big presumption to think that we´ve been and we always are the only ones to populate this universe as it is also to believe that our time and space are the only possible dimensions I love einstein!!)
BERG:exactly there are so many things we don´t know about that it could exist really anything it´s scientifically impossible that other forms of life do not exist...
ILDEN:absolutely the universe´s so vast I think they can exist also many of those creatures featured ion the myths or that they at least existed but urbanizing and life far from nature made us more insensible to all these things
HAMMER:I WANT TO BELIEVE! he-he! but I love this one I think belongs to s,thomas:IF I DON´T SEE I DON´T BELIEVE
7-describe in your own words what is folklore?legend?
ILDEN:folklore is a very important part of every civilization and population and forgetting it means to forget ones own past and history both the national and the personal one that one of everyday life and the ancient wisdom
BERG:legends are true stories magnified in the time folklore has clearly marked the character of the tales
HAMMER:a legend is a historical fact that passing through time becomes a myth then you put some fantasy in it and some words passed in the right/wrong way and here you have the legend folklore is the passive believing and accepting of the legend
IVY:folklore is something typical local that can express within stories,rites,exc something that still lives and repeats in that certain zone and in that certain moment legend is sometimes a literary story and sometimes a true story but we are not given the possibility to know where these two things collide and fuse in one and where they separate
8-what are the musical influences of the band?which favorite bands?
BERG:my musical influences and favorite bands/musicians are pantera,emperor,keep of kalessin,arcturus,dissection,opeth,bloodbath,morbid angel,sepultura,nile,zyklon and all together with them the giants of music pink floyd,s.r. vaughan,van halen,black sabbath
IVY:I love lots of artists so different between them some give me simply great energy(hypocrisy,emperor,nevermore,soilwork,testament,old cradle of filth,borknagar.enslaved...) some are talents I quietly and deeply admire (opeth,ayreon),others are interesting to me because of the way they write and perform their songs(my dying bride,arcturus,katatonia,faith no more,moonspell,alice in chains) my main inspirations as a singer are the unique bulgarian voices lisa gerard(dead can dance),anneke(ex-gathering),a lenox,anathema,kr. rygg(ulver/ex-arcturus),andrea nebel (hagalaz runedance),fiona apple, clannad,r.j. dio (the one and only...r.i.p),the 3rd and the mortal,blues and soul female voices too
HAMMER:for me nile and behemoth are above all other bands are keep of kalessin,watain,carpathian forest and soon...
ILDEN: I think extreme scandinavian music is basic influence here
9-how you define your music?where comes the inspiration?
BERG:it´s a melodic extreme metal mostly influenced from black and death metal inspiration is an unpredictable thing it depends on situations but for me an excellent moment to create music in my mind before creating it with my guitar is during the night when I go to sleep:silence,relax,only me and my thoughs...
IVY:the listeners will define better our genre we´ve got many different opinions and definitions on it probably because we´ve changed from dammed marsh till now and most of all now considering that the forthcoming album will be more direct and full of energy... my inspiration comes sometimes from my dreams at night sometimes from nature sometimes from literature and art but mostly from everyday life that provides so many intense stories... and from the music itself in the moment I listen to what the guys are writing in that precise moment something emerges from my mind and that´s the moment to put it in lyrics... as to singing I don´t need inspiration I simply do it because it makes me feel alive it´s like breathing I always sing if I can(even in the shower yes!)
HAMMER:brutal legend black metal D... inspiration somes spontaneous while listening to other music than yours then comes out the instinct and here we go there´s nothing planned
ILDEN:I think it´s a perfect mix of black and death metal and thanks to the continous variations and the female voice it is somehow of an easy-listening for all and not only for the purist of those styles
BERG:this way a very funny interview so I wish to thank ´the glory of pagan fire zine`for the interest in us I salute all the readers and remind them that we´re are recording our full lenght album so feel free to come and visit our myspace or reverbnation profiles and to check our blogs for updates, and to listen to the new songs of course stay metal!
HAMMER:final legend? it´s 2012 soon...be ready!!! thank you for your curiosity!
IVY:to salute you...hmm...I don´t know if you prefer me to tell you one final story or a legend or to tell you that your country fascinates us since a long time so I decide that we can leave each other with this wish we´re looking forward to meet you live to tell you our stories from the stage why not! allt he best from ELVEN! and remember fortune presents gifts not according to the book so don´t ever stop dreaming having big desires thinking positive and most of all believing in yourselves!! kisses!

1-we are living in a world wide human society decayed where the important values are changing we don´t know who is who the thoughts feelings and desires of the people are not clear there is a big confusion in the air,politics corruption,enviromental degration how the band see this scenery?
JAN AG: It’s human behaviour, directed by greed. New standards should be set to make this world a better place for all.
2-the universe has 04 millions of years approximately in 200 hundred years the mankind changed all structure of the earth currently we can feel the effects of this change as the change of the weather,absence of food of water,etc the actual human society has pride of your technology,progress civilization but the question is are we really civilized?
JAN AG: Humanity is too intelligent and this intelligence makes mankind dumb. No other animal than mankind has the power to self-destruct.
3-all of us are living in a self called modern civilization at the same time we see abominable practices the man kill animals to satisfy your desires to taste of meat, to have power there is genetic modifications of the food stupid wars,manufacture of weapons to destroy it self and others machin es to control the life of peoples are we developing or retrograding?
JAN AG: Mankind is self destructing. When we will continue like this, all will be gone for our next generations. Radical change of standards is needed.
4-what is the ideology behind agathocles lyrics?what do you want to speak?
JAN AG: AG is based on social autonomy. We believe in a system which gives everyone what he needs. At the moment, there is no balance in that. So the system must be corrected, by all means, for all of us.
5-the human beign created the machines to make easy your life but the machines becomes the man obsolete the technology of the chips are to control us like implantable human chip the digital cameras to observe etc what the opinion of the band about this bad technology?
JAN AG: Technology will soon live an own life, not controlled by mankind. At the moment, mankind controls mankind, but it’s not science fiction to say that in a near future computers will control mankind.
6-do you have some personal dream or a bands dream will not realized?
JAN AG: I don’t have any special dreams. The more dreams you have, the more disappointments you will face.
7-exist a truth behind the things no doubt but we can see one reality created by man tv,school,religion,radio,internet,etc around the true facts, where the lie is evident in band opinion is it easy to detect the truth when our mind is exposed to the lie?
JAN AG: To have a more complete view on what is happening around the world, you have to get your news from different media sources. All media is subjected to an ideology.
8-what the band is listening at the present? which bands?
JAN AG: At the moment, I am listening a lot of the Russian band GRAZHDANSKAYA OBORONA. Other bands that I have played a lot lately are BLAFKAT, DNA, ARROGANTA AGITATORER, SORELLA MALDESTRA and UNHOLY GRAVE.
JAN AG: Thanx for your interest in AG and for giving us space in your zine. Good luck with your work in the future. Cheers to all people who have taken the time to read this interview. I hope it was a little bit interesting, if not, tough luck. Keep the DO IT YOURSELF flame burning ! GRIND IS PROTEST , NOT POSING ! MINCE ON !!!

1-Could you come back in time in which age would you like to live?
First I would like to see how it really was when this so called "Jesus the saviour and son of god" was and if he really was that kind of
glorious and "swindlering" person that so many millions in this crazy,insanity world believes that he was and is?!And that is responsible
together with his so called "father" (God) for so many wars during the whole mankinds history.And then after that I would prefer to
live around the time of the medieval age or maya/inca era or the time of the old vikngs or the Babylonian era.Maybe also live side by side
with the real ancestors in USA also, the indians.That would also probably be a great time and adventure.As I have nothing much left for
this todays modern world society or kind of living.What I mean by this is that in the past and old history all humans lived with the nature
and served it well with their own sweat and tears.They had no faked gods,they had their own vision and belief in what was right and wrong.
Today millions follows one or two gods thru an old "fucking" book and does what it tells them to do.No normal sexual belief accepted
before marriage,no masturbation,sacrifice yourself for some crucified asshole that just was a little hypocrite.And all those things has
also caused a weak and sick depressive world.I mean shall we now today let a little pedofile pope with a funny hat rule our world?The
same I believe it is with judaism and all other fanatical religios shithole.I accept other religions and beief, but when it comes to
insanity and fanatic ideas, then I think we could drop them all into sea and hope the fishes will have a good meal.God means death and
slavery,follow your inner voice and dont let yourself be a slave by hypocrites and faanatic mainacs.Live with the anture,live and take
care of mother earth instead of follow something that is false and truly evil.This story I could go on and on with, but I end it here.
I dont call myseld satanist really (the thing is to misunderstood tragically),but I believe in the universe, nature and mother earth
and their inner powers and soul.Call it paganism, satanism, occult views or ideolgy, whatever you want to call it.
Something or anything is not necessary needed to be called something either.End of God a day of a new dawn.
2-Currently how is it have a metal band?
I would like to say that I love music of nearly all kinds and is in a bit higher age today and not that young.And started my musical
journey all back in the stoneage,haha in 1981. And from that date I have played in several bands and it has been all from punk,grind,
gothrock,Oi,death metal,doom,heavy and black metal. The list can be miles away long I guess.The same is it nearly with Alltears my
bandmate in the band.He have played in the well known band Steelattack and Tragic Serenade,Persecution,Zephyr and much more.
I have been active myself in several bands like Equinox,Tragic Serenade,Obey,Killteam,No Agony,Kollaps,Exotic Flower,Tales,Harvey
Wallbanger,Affliction and many, many more.In younger age and this is just as I feel like, is that then when you played in a band
you always wanted to reach higher and higher and also dreamed of some fat contract/signing with some big label.But that type of
thinking is not actual the same today,haha.Now I play just for the fun and also to hopefully be remembered for something unique
and original and I never really seeks for glory,money or other shit.We are a undergroun metal band and will continue that way
even if we becomes bigger, but I can promise that we never will be a band that some typical profit label can rule and say what to
do.We will never creep in shit for others, that thing can those who love continue with, we will not.
3-How do you see the release of some materials like vinyl,tape and ep?
We have made one album in 2009 "Back to the glorious past" on cd,two split albums also on cd and one tape release so far.And back
in 2007 we also did our two demos that nowdays are sold out since a long time.But about vinyl, that is a dream that I have I can tell
as I remember that time before cds made it´s debut.And the difference is that to hold a vinyl lp or ep is much more cool than a cd in
my own opinion.But nothing bad to say about cd either as I love that format also,hehe.But vinyl is old and still a greater format than
cd if I have to choose.Tape format is also a underated format as it lives more than less longer than a normal cd does today.I can promise
on that, cause I have a tape that still function perfectly from late 70s.And how cool is not that, haha.We have plans to do some kind
of production on vinyl, maybe a split with some other band or an ep.Omen from Malayisa is interested in such things with us so who knows?
But the problem is to find some label interested in doing that as today it does not exists that many labels that still does it
on vinyl.We can just give our hope that sometimes it may return.As the vinyl format is so brilliant and original and better looking too.
4-Which bands are you listening now? What kind of books you like to read?
Hmm,hard question,haha.Alltears I knows that he likes bands like Dimension Zero,Children Of Bodom,In Flames,Samael,Frozenpath,Bathory
and Kovenant to mention some there.I maybe listen to some more bands myself as I have a record label also that I runs and in that way
you comes in contact and touch with so many bands beside of your own personal favorites also.But some of my favorite band is Bathory
that is eternal gods and one of my main inspirations,Hellhammer,Celtic Frost,Burzum,Hate Forest,Nokturnal Mortum,Apraxia,Witchfinder
General,Count Raven,Pagan Reign,Cry,Nocra,Lost In Darkness,Purgatory,a doom,Frozenpath,Sorg Innkallelse,Illapa,Al-Namrood,Necromanteion,
Samael,Skullfist,Frost,Loits,Freedom Call,Mortelo Negro,Herpsed and Bestia and so many more.But those are some of the bands I use to listen to
and love and will probably always do.I have also some favorites in other musical genres too, but mostly weak for metal and some hc/punk.
Books I read,hehe..In fact I dont read books today jsu newspaper and maybe some cartoon magazines.But some years back I read much and
some books that still is some of the greatest I have readed is Bram Stokers Dracula,Titanic and Crime And Punishment.But I have also
readed a so called "forbidden" book, but could not manage and fix the whole one as it was to hard and big and which one it is,
people have to guess there, hehe, I just say second world war.
5-Do you think there is no evolution in metal scene in present time what is your opinion to put new elements non conventional instruments in metal sound inside?
I am open for all kinds and believe it is interesting and unique in some way when bands uses some new and original instruments
in their music beside of just the regular ones.And I also believe the metal scene always will go up and down thru the years as
it always have done.Today I feels and believe that the underground scene specially is very good and grows for every day.I mean
so much bands it exists today have I never ever before noticed.Instruments I believe suits great in metal of all subgenres is
violin,keyboards,flute,piano and much more.And if the bands knows how to use it right it can bring in something real great and
special sound too.Nothing has just to be regular guitars,bass and drums, why not spread that journey as long it is met
6-You think those events that happened in norway helped spread the black metal around the world and these facts we can highlight the positive and negative?
Just one answer there, YES absolutely.But the black metal scene is quite big now everywhere and it is growing and growing
even in the middle east and asia.So where it will headed too will be real interested to see.One thng else I would like to
say is that today black metal is much more accepted also and that is in some ways good, but also bad.As that can bring bad
rumours about the scene compared to the regular metal scene.And we can just hope that the black metal underground does not
come to some kind of profit,glammy dark dressed rockers that just running around and screams satan just cause it is cool or
something,haha.Then it goes straight to the wrong place and situation I believe.As long a real underground scene exists in
both black metal and death metal as well too, it will exists real black metal music and musicians.Together we are all a united
force against the normality and the profit hungry and religios bastards.
7-How you define your music?
From the first days back in 2001 when we started the band and were called Curse, we were maybe more inspired by death metal
and some industrial elements.Back then our most inspirations were bands like Rotting Christ,Samael,Kovenant and Celtic Frost.
But since 2007 when we started to play more seriously we are more inspired by much black metal and pagan/folk metal.But
as we both are much older in the band and have played together since many years back in time and in other bands too, we
have in some way a very spreaded influence to create our own music.But we plays and describe our music as epic pagan black
metal with some death influences in the style as well.And some people also thinks we sounds little industrial inspired in the
music, but that is not on purpose at all.It just getting that way even that we dont try too.But we are not a typical black metal
band maybe,we do it in our own way and that is how we want it to be.We dont want to be like all others.We wants to create something
own and unique and we love it that way.We just follow our inner feelings and that becomes Demorian.
8-Your lyrics talk about what? your lyrics are put on the for whom?
Our lyrics are about many different topics.And much of it is about old glorious time and ancient history and our ancestors
and specially about the viking history,paganism,celts,occultism,war,religions and also about deeper inner darker feelings as
depressive thoghts,doomsday,spiritual things,demons,mother nature and much more.The main topics is old times,nature and old
history and about our earth as it is and was.
9-How are the concerts of the the band?
As we are just two members in Demorian we have no possibility to do concerts yet as it is to hard with just the two of us to do it.
On our debut album we were more than less 3 in the band as my wife was a helping hand for that, but now we are just two again,
but no one knows what the future can bring.We have been asked from some places to come and play and mexico is one country that we
have been invited to.And that is to sad that we reall cannot do it.But the problem is not just that we are to few in the band.We
have both families and many kids so that is also a thing that causes some trouble.But if anoyone some day can help us out for a gig
as session members to play with us, it is maybe not longer a impossibility that we can do it.But as the reality looks right today
we are just a studio band and we try to do the best of the situation anyway.We creates hard,raw antichristian metal and that is in
the first place what it is all about.
10-Sweden has big bands recognized worldwide how do you see sweden metal scene right now?
There is several good bands in Sweden today as Korpblod,WAN,Höstmörker,Islamofobi,Galla,Blodsband
,Godhate,Stellar Winter just to
mention some good ones.But the scene is a bit to flashy and famous seeking in some way, but that is not all bands that is like
that of course, but the old years back in late 80s and 90s was better in some way.Today it seems that many try out to be the best
band and the most evil one,worst,bloodiest and such things and that I believe is splitting up the underground scene a bit.But
those bands that is not like that and tries to follow in that direction have harder times I believe to be recognized and known.
Many thanks for this great interview and a big salute to all out there in the whole world that gives support in us.And all those
that keeping the underground alive.Without you all we would never ahve reached where we are today.Thanks to all bands,labels and
zines who have supported us in some way or another.Together we all are strong and together we cannot fail.

1. Are you Nihilist's? What is your opinion about Life and Death?
Are we Nihilist's? No. Are we nihilistic? Yes...obviously our music and imagery are very dark and misanthropic. This sound and look appeals to us on a primal level. Do we hold to a specific doctrine or philosophy? No...we reserve the right be and do what we want from moment to moment; this is in line with the selfish artistic compulsion within us. Perhaps this is from that which calls to us from beyond. No one can ever know for sure. We don't respond well to boundaries. Life and Death? Is there a difference? I know not. Perhaps this is all a dream or construct. I yearn for that which is beyond.
2. How are the infernal gigs of the band?
I like to think of our gigs more as rally's. The Kommandant aesthetic is very provocative and challenging. We operate on many levels. There is of course in a metal sense the intense assault of our sound and music. We are very purposeful about all aspects of the live performance or rally as I said. There are the visual aspect as well. Some are drawn to the overall dark and oppressive imagery of our visage. This is intentional. Some comprehend the overall truly terrifying element we are trying to embody. There are those who do not get it and are threatened by what we do. Some like to read political stances into what we do. Some have left our shows very upset. This pleases us as well. It pleases us that without a word, we have upset someone to the point of forfeiting their entrance fee merely by how we look. THEY have read into us...we have reached out and affected them; controlled them if you will, with our APPERACNE. This is powerful. Metal...truly aggressive metal is not meant to be "safe", or "happy". I do not wish to be a part of some hippy love fest music. I want our audience to feel we are at war with them on some level. I want them to feel elated that they survived our set and have received a sort of dark communion with us and that is something in which we are touched by. We reserve the right NOT to be simply a predictable or typical metal band. Kommandant is truly a thing to behold live. This is KNOWN.
3. To live in this world is war, so who is the enemy to destroy in this war?
Those who oppose us.
4. What are the elements to compose a strong and powerful song?
There are two of us who compose the "music" in Kommandant. We draw on a lifetime of metal influence as well as from that which speaks to us from beyond. We know what is necessary and that indeed is the aim; To create potent dark art that we as lovers of this form would like to be a spectator for ourselves. Then there is the aspect of catharsis. There is a lot going on in us behind the mask of sanity. I have already said to much.
5. Talk a bit about the history of the band.
We are all veterans of this dark art and have been creating it for many years combined. I don't wish to bore you with a list of past members and gigs and recordings. Kommandant was conceived in 2005. Iron Hands on Scandinavia E.P.. Stormlegion Lp (Planet Metal) and now Kontakt E.P. (Planet Metal). Many successful rally's
6. What feelings do you have when listening to the sound of Kommandant.
Immediately my pulse quickens. There is an anger response within and I am at one with that within me that is destructive and hateful. I am elated to be in this band. I feel as I did the first time I heard Thrash, the first time I heard Death Metal and the first time I heard Black Metal . I feel connected to the evolution of extreme metal music.
7. What do you think about:
George W. Bush- An uninspired pawn and puppet liar and deceiver................ as is the way of the politician.
Anton LaVey- I think he is a thief and liar, but bold and calculating. I admire this.
Charles Manson- a fool and crazed megalomaniac who almost became a god, by following the path of all "saviors"...he could have become the next Christ.
8. What are you trying to express through your letter?
I do not understand the question. If you mean through Kommandant, listen and it will speak to you as they do to us.
9. Who would you condemn to the death penalty?
The list is far too long for your publication.
10. Last words?
Kommandant is rising. It is not for all. True lovers of extreme music, try it and see if it speaks to you. If it does...join us.
1-what is the meaning behind the band´s name curimus? is it a finnish word?what is curimus exactly?
Finnish word “kurimus” means vortex or maelstrom in English. So we just changed the first letter. That name describes our music and lyrics very well
2-we can see a worldwide scenery of ignorance in humankind blid people leading blin people seeing a true mind confusion on deep darkness without values about good and evil living in sub-human conditions of life like animals killing themselves what the band opinion around that all it?
. When you watch news or read newspapers you don’t have to be a genius to realize that people have really fucked up. Unfortunately I don’t see the future any better. People trust in pointless values. Greed and hate are controlling the World nowadays and human lives are worthless
3-in curimus album ´humanity for sale´we can see similar people blind following a standard of living with bars code currently some people know about human implantable chips how do you see this kind of technology for example in human society can be another kind of mass control the end of human ´freedom´?
I really don’t want to see tattooed bar codes or microchips in people’s head. That kind of life is not worth living. Freedom is one of the most important things in humanity. I don’t think that people will agree that kind of plans. At least it will take a lot of bloodshed before
4-what are musical influence of band´s members?which bands you like?
Machine Head, Sepultura and Pantera have been big influences for us. All the members have a little bit different taste of music. Here are few favorite bands to mention: Sepultura, Slayer, At the Gates, Katatonia, Judas Priest and Rob Zombie
5-unfortunately we see a chaotic situation everywhere in each part of the world human history in common historical books like a big lie the liars behind goverments the mass media with your alienation the religion with your fake theories all of that as a big hypnosis where is the truth?inside of each of us or out there?
All the people should use their own brains to decide what is true and what is false. People don’t question the acts of media and governments enough. I think everyone should determine their own truth and not to base it only on other people’s beliefs
6-there is bloodshed since the beginning of humanity till today for nothing because of difference of religious political,ethnical rules based hypothetical on truth do you really think that humanity human being is intelligent?
Yes, I think that human being is intelligent. Stupid species cannot kill each other so effectively. Human race has three tools for self-destruction: money, power and organized religions. All big problems in the World are connected to those three things somehow
7-what are the top heavy metal albums for the band?tell about 05 albums?
Here is one album from each guy:
Rainbow - Rising
Queensrÿche - Operation: Mindcrime
Alice Cooper - Welcome to My Nightmare
Katatonia - Night is the New Day
8-so many people believes in influence of devil behind each bad act of human being do you think the devil is human being that all bad acts are of total responsibility of us?not of the devil?
I don’t believe that the devil or any god will guide us to do something. People can destroy themselves without help. But if the devil is walking among us we surely have plenty of them
9-what kind of counsciouness you like to speak in your owm music?
We write about subjects that mean something to us. I don’t even care if other people are interested in those things we write about or not. Writing lyrics is some kind of soul-searching. At least I feel that way. Some of our lyrics are quite critical but we don’t want to preach to anyone. Those are only our thoughts about our lives and what we see around us. Everyone can read the lyrics and make their own conclusion about them.
10-last word ?
We will upload a few new songs on our Myspace site soon. Welcome to check them out at www.myspace.com/curimus Cheers from Finland.

1 - talk about the scene in your country?
In Russia black metal scene is developed not so bad. Unfortunately, large labels prefer to release hordes, whose music confessedly disharmonizes with black metal ideas, finding the good response in the crowd of teenagers. I’m understanding that this situation concerned with commercial reasons. But realy estimable interesting bands are doomed to exist in deeper underground, contenting very small editions of their releases. I wanna mark out Gmork, uRAn 0, Eres', Veretragor, Necrolatreia, Ghornumn, Tenebris, Forestgrave.
2 - what vision you have of death?
Death is a gift which we can outlast only once. Primordial canons of our world are made so faultlessly. I think, that human essence is only maggot. It’s a stage on long way to the higher form, which can live in the global primal chaos and not depend from time and matter.
3 - because the forbidden always fascinates us?
Certainly, forbidden attracts everyone, but everyone have his individual limit. Always there will be the one who will go further than others. But nobody thinks about outcome... Supervise your desires and possibilities, they have property to come true!
4 - his war and against whom?
Through my music I’m trying to inform since earliest times idea of struggle against human herd, and showing how insignificant two-legged scoff with his ambitions, avidity, ardour to progress before grandeur and might of the nature surrounding us. I feel a pain when walking to the places, where at one time birchwoods and boundless fields were lie, now here only heaps of shit presented by nugatory civilisation. The human does not honour that has given his life, instead of this, he amuses itself any type of delirium, like religions, drugs, inadequate lust, homosexualism and others. The similar creature is not worth the rights to existence.
5 - ha world that we are led through your music?
It is the world of fool, that standing on the edge of chasm, and not suspecting what horrors and pain the chasm has prepared for him. Some tracks from the first album were created under impression of tales of HP Lovecraft. Second album is the almanac of human inferiority before that over what it thought himself the master. Another branch of my creative way is ambient, impregnated with beauty and danger of the nature.
6 - suicide is a form of relief to life in this morbid world?
My opinion is unequivocal. Suicide is only for weaklings, not for warriors. Since Black Metal is war!
7 - emerges from where his inspiration to compose the lyrics of the band?
In general I write the lyrics spontaneously for my poison. I obtain inspiration from internal experiences, walk to the primeval nature, books and films, so, from all that can hurt the strings of my soul and imagination.
8 - making nature is so mysterious and intriguing to us has a certain fascination about her?
Yes, I already mentioned about it above.
9 - end suffering
Thank for interesting questions. Successes in support of the true underground! Everyone have his path, sometimes it winds and goes uphill. In that moment the main thing is not to surrender and not to betray your ideals. Listen to your heart, listen to your rage. Be strong and stay metal! Stay black fucking metal!!!
