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!!!

1-Do you think that the climate of Europe and the intense winter somehow influences the composition of the music of the bands in Europe?
Winter is cold, stark and bare. Life is totally frozen. It’s that harshness towards nature which pairs well with the sound of Dragged into Sunlight. If you immerse yourself in total darkness, you stand a better chance of achieving and portraying total darkness.
Whether you’ll emerge with your sanity intact is unclear. Reading the works of Jason Moss, the insight gained from his friendship with John Wayne Gacy yields uniquely sinister results, but the guy hung himself six years later. It’s a double edged sword.
There are many extreme bands in the UK and whilst it’s impossible to decipher whether any others appreciate the unique climate we have over here, Dragged into Sunlight subscribe to a definite and meteorological influence.
2-currently what is your opinion about metal scene?
The scene works in cycles. At the moment, underground extreme metal is on a high. It’s predictable that any scene will attract the unwanted attention of coattail riders. The same scene ends up flooded with bands, some of which will inevitably possess colossal talent, others not so much.
At present, there seems to be an overwhelming weight towards ambient black metal. A concern is the lack of thought which goes into some of the material out there. Dragged into Sunlight is meticulously planned and if that means we take longer, you’ll have to wait.
3-the internet advent get the possibility to have some materials easy for everyone what the good and bad side of internet for you?
The internet has its advantages and disadvantages. People are able to access music easier, but whether they still appreciate content which is so readily available becomes questionable.
The upside is that technology drives evolution and everything is possible, the downside is that it takes one idiot to overstep the mark and end the world.
4-do you think black metal only must speak about satanism or can speak about other themes?
Traditionally, black metal carried a satanic connotation, the more contemporary approach is towards ambient black metal and there’s a definite tendency to dress music in ambiguity. The lack of focus is atrocious, yet because underground extreme metal is on a high at the moment, it’s lapped up.
This isn’t a romantic meal for two, it’s extreme metal. Whilst amongst the contemporary scene, the subject matter of black metal has a wider scope and the audience has a wider pallet, extreme metal by nature is extreme and black metal is blackened. And so, the ability of the listener to distinguish genuine contributions to extreme metal from those bands here for the moment is matter of musical integrity
5-whom you hate for?
Hate is wasteful. It is neither a constructive or destructive emotion. Collectively, we loathe; a far more corrosive and destructive emotive dedication. How many pages do you have?
6-what are your favorite black metal albums?
At present and in no particular order – Deathspell Omega “Fas – Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum”, Weakling “Dead as Dreams” and Vetus Obscurum “Blood Revelations”.
7-you think a song can influence a person to commit a suicide or kill someone?
A song can influence a person to pick up a gun, whether you turn it on yourself, someone else or both, remains a personal discrepancy. Some are more easily influenced than others. As before, if you choose to indulge in total darkness, whether you’ll emerge with your sanity in tact is the risk you take.
For every Ted Bundy, there’s a handful of normal. Eventually, another mind ends up fucked on violence and goes hunting with a hacksaw. As Bundy said, “You are going to kill me, and that will protect society from me. But there are many, many more....”.
So yes, similarly to any social phenomena, a song ‘can’ influence a person to commit suicide or kill someone, but the success rate is relatively low.
8-do you think the music and a good way of expressing our dark feelings?
Definitely, there are 365 days this year, you’re guaranteed to have one where you feel like loading up a nail gun and firing off some rounds. Extreme music thrives on that emotion.
“Kiss my ass” John Wayne Gacy, 1994.
