Interview with Sepulchral Voices(thrash metal from Belgium)

From left to right: Seb. Ironfist(guitar), J.(drums), GP Angel reaper(bass, vocals)

1.Hailz Sepulchral Voices, and welcome to the Sadistik Witchfukk zine! Because this is the first interview with you, tell us about your band!
GP. Angel reaper: Hi, dude! Sepulchral Voices is an old-school thrash metal band, which we started in July 2012. First, it was only me and Seb. Ironfist, who decided to make a band and after many rehearsals at my house (in the city of Tamines), we decided to find a drummer and so we found J. who joined us during October 2012.
Seb. Ironfist: The band started during the summer of 2012 with GP. Angel reaper and J., joined us in september. We are influenced by Sodom, Kreator, and all the speed metal, thrash metal scene from the 80's.
J.: Hail, we are a spritual-philosophic band with hippies-pacific-christian-buddist-muslim tendencies... Alright, I stop my jokes. We are a thrash metal band, our music is simply agressive.

2.Have you played in any other bands than Sepulchral Voices before? If so, give details about that!
GP. Angel reaper: Sepulchral Voices is my first serious band, because about few years ago, when i was a drummer, i started many projects, but it was nothing serious.
Seb. Ironfist: I never played in a band, because I have only 2 years of practising (guitar).
J.: I will tell you the most important ones, because if I will tell all the bands, it will take 2 pages : Lacerate (death-grind), Devoured (thrash-death), Extremist (thrash) and many others. Actually, I play in Goat Perversör (black-thrash), Vorax Virosus (grind-death), Sepulchral Voices and perhaps the come-back of Extremist.

3.You recorded a rehearsal-demo (I really like the quality, it sounds like it was recorded in 1984-1985, congrats to you for that!). What can you tell about it (songwriting process, lyrical themes). Who is writing the lyrics and who is writing the music?
GP. Angel reaper: Yes, it's a rehearsal demo with raw and dirty sound hehe. For composing songs, me and Seb are trying some riffs and when we found these good, J. put the drums on it. I write the lyrics, they're about metal, satan, witches... nothing original hehe.
Seb. Ironfist: GP. found the ideas for the lyrics and for the songs, it's me and Seb, after J. put the drum on it.
J.: First, we have to give thanks to Gabriel Tapia (singer and guitarist of Vorax Virosus. He also drew the logo of Vorax, t-shirt of Dehuman, Slaughter Messiah and the artwork of Maleficence demo tape). It was a home-made recording with a dictaphone and all the instruments in same time. After we recorded the vocals, Gabriel put all on his laptop and did the mixing. The results were what we expected.

4.On what formats is the demo available on (apart of mp3 haha): vinyl, cd or tape? Do you have any artworks for it? Do you plan to send it to distros, or it is only promotional and it is only for labels and such?
GP. Angel reaper: We have a demo available in cd (it's CD-r), everything was home-made haha. The first thing is to share our music, so we send or sell our demo to many people. We'll think about an artwork for the EP.
Seb. Ironfist: Demo is available on CD, we try to make our band known. The artwork is for the future EP.
J.: Have we an artwork ???

5.What other bands can you recommend us from Belgium?
GP. Angel reaper: Slaughter Messiah, Maleficence, Evil Shepherd, Evil Invaders, Horacle, Nemesis Irae, Goat Perversör, Vorax Virosus and Gae Bolga
Seb. Ironfist: Horacle, Slaughter Messiah, Maleficence, Goat Perversör and Vorax Virosus.
J.: Goat Pervesör (black-thrash), Vorax Virosus (grind-death), Slaughter Messiah (black-thrash), Dehuman (death), Nemesis Irae (black-death), Maleficence (black-thrash), Spermafrost (black and roll), Dezhumanizer (black), Domine Hate (death) for the most underground.

6.Did you played any live shows yet?
GP. Angel reaper: No, we have to make more songs.
Seb. Ironfist: We are ready, but we have to make more songs because now, we can play only 15 minutes and it's not too much.
J.: Not for now, but later yes.

7.How is the response so far about your music?
GP. Angel reaper : I'm very glad, because many people like our music, we have a lot of support.
Seb. Ironfist: The comments are good.
J.: Our music is shit, don't listen to it, because she'll turn you from the way of god haha.

8.Do you take a look on Fenriz's Band of the Week? I know he recommends old-school stuff, and stuff that you play too. What do you think about the latest Darkthrone releases?
GP. Angel reaper: I don't know, I'll try to get a look on it. I've listened the last Darkthone and I liked it.
Seb. Ironfist: I've listened the last Darkthrone and I liked it, especially the track "Leave no Cross Unturned", but I prefer the "Dark Thrones and Black Flags" album, because it's more punkish.
J.: No and I didn't knew that, I will die less idiot haha. The last Darkthrone is good, but I have some difficulties with the clean vocals.

9.Your top 10 all-time favourite albums are...?
GP. Angel reaper: I can't answer because the numbers is over than 10 for me haha.
Seb. Ironfist:
  • Skull Fist - Head öf the Pack
  • Iron Maiden - Killers
  • Sodom - In the Sign of Evil
  • Kreator - Endless Pain
  • Angel Witch - Angel Witch
  • Darkthrone - Dark Thrones and Black Flags
  • Celtic Frost - Morbid Tales
  • Enthroned - Towards the Skullthrone of Satan
  • Violent Force - Malevolent Assault of Tomorrow
  • Destruction - Sentence of Death
J.: This question is too difficult for me, because there are many albums from many bands. I can't tell you only
10. It will take a long-time.

10.What bands can you recommend from Hungary, Ukraine, Romania and Moldova?
GP. Angel reaper: O-Zone from Moldova haha.
Seb. Ironfist: Tormentor from Hungary.
J.: In few minutes... From Ukraine, I know: Nokturnal Mortum, Drudkh, Hate forest. From Hungary: Sear Bliss, Archivum, Hungarica and from Romania: Negură Bunget.

J.: Being famous with our band, so we can eat Jack Daniel's, lobster, caviar and pay some hookers haha. No, seriously, play much as possible with a lot of fun.

14.That's all for now. The last (threatening) words are yours!
GP. Angel reaper: Thx for the interview and your support, spread our music !
J.: Thank you, and cheers from Belgium.

Interview with Rawar of Contaminated(death metal band from Uzhgorod/Ungvár/Ujhhorod)


1.Hailz, Contaminated! Because this is the first interview with you, and there is also lack of informations about you on the internet, please tell us your biography!
Hail Sorin, here is Rawar of Contaminated, firstly a big thanks for your support!
The band has been created in 2007, when 2 friends, Rawar and Nefarious decided to create a death metal band of old-school style. The band recorded their stuff: demo-album "Towards Murderous Compulsion" in 2007 (that demo-album, which one includes 17 tracks in veins of "British death metal school", as  Benediction, Napalm Death ('90's era)). Next demo-album, "Subliminal Absurdity" was released in 2010.
Contaminated band recorded their most professional and technical album, "Your Ashes are Nothing" in March, 2013. That album includes a mixture of American and Dutch death metal traditions of old school.....

2.Did the members played in other bands?
I came into metal music in 1996 and as musician, we, with Nepharious created a death/black metal horde called Anubis in Uzhgorod, in 2001. Anubis band existed until 2005, we played some gigs in our hometown, Uzhgorod, and recorded a demo-album entitled „Heretical Perception” and we had good reception there. After that I did a few shows with a local thrash-band, Terrorium, between 2005-2007, as a drummer. Then I enjoyed (as drummer) in the resurrection of a great Ukranian heathen black metal band, Reusmarkt, with Vladimir(guitars) of Anubis. With Reusmarkt I played a lot of live performances(for example Kolovrat-Fest and crushed some places through Ukraine) and I left that band for personal reasons, one of that it was my loyalty to play old-school death metal.

3.Well, you are a good death metal band. And the only new good band I know from Uzhgorod. Can you describe the local scene? What about the reactions so far?
Thanks a lot! As for me I never called  that we had/have a local scene here in Uzhgorod, the reason is simple: we have a lot of bands with excellent shit, „metalcore, punk, deathcore, pseudo-black metal”, that is not my cup of tea. We have a few old bands like Castrum and Soulrest. We never played live but between old-schoolers of our hometown we had and have a good reception.

4.Now, let's talk about your debut LP. Give us some infos about it!
The recording process of drums, guitars and bass we did it at „homework-studio”. I hate recording process, I’ve felt sick. Vocals were recorded in Municipal Radio”-studio. Thats all.

5.Did you signed with a label or it will be self-released?
It has been a self-released one and we’ve sent/will send to a lot of labels through Worldwide.

6.Did you played any live-shows so far?
Still not, but if we will catch a good label, I will search some musicians for the live shows.

7.Do you plan to make a tour to promote your album?
Let’s see. Hopefully, yes!

8.What bands influenced you?
Firstly I had been influenced of American death metal (as Death (R.I.P. Chuck), Obituary, Deicide, Maevolent Creation, Atheist, Resurrection et cetera), Dutch death metal (Pestilence, Gorefest, Sinister, Asphyx). I’d/ve prefered/prefer also old school Swedish Dödsmetal, like Grave, Nihilst, Carnage, Entombed, Dismember etc.

9. Please enlight us about your lyrical conception!
That is a good, deep question. In my opinion as music as lyrical conception are whole one! But this does not means black metal position, where lyrics are supreme.
I see that mankind comes to logical end! Because processes of Universe always have the beginning and the end. Then no need to have a surprise, what happening nowadays, it’s a cycle process of time. Humanity are marching to a logical, forthcoming end and going to a new era, but I think the mankind didn’t make some conclusions. Read our lyrics and I hope You’ll understand my opinion about all.

10.What bands from Russia, Ukraine, Hungary, Romania and Moldova can you recommend us? And also from the entire globe(if you can add some)?
Ok, step by step:
From Russia: Septory, Morrah, Grace Disgraced, Khasm, Sect, Djur….
Ukraine: Sidus Mortuorum, Slaughter Brute, early-Fleshgore, Ulvegr, Violent Omen
From Romania I would like to mention Avatar, and from Moldova Lethal Outcome and Disentomb…
Hungary: Gutted and I know personally a freak funny man, called Georgius, who used to be as vocalist in Hungarian black metal horde, Domhring and early Castrum also.

11.Your all-time favourite metal 10 albums are?
1. Death: Spiritual healing
2. Sepultura: Beneath the remains
3. Kreator: Extreme Aggressions
4. Slayer: Divine Intervention
5. Obituary: Cause of Death
6. Devastation: Idolatry
7. Demolition Hammer: Tortured Existence
8. Pestilence: Consuming Impulse
9. Sinister: Diabolical Summoning
10. Benediction: Transcend the Rubicon
( this is random one because I listen to and like much more..:) )

12.Can you recommend us some foods and drinks from your area?
It’s funny, I know, but I prefer Italian kitchen
Ok but from local ones I like so much  traditional Ukranian and Hungarian ones. Some foods for example: borshch, vareniki, rakott krumpli, gulyás. I like good Russian vodka and Bourbon-whisky. And I like also a good Czech or German beer.

13.That's all for now. The last words are yours!
Mersi, Sorin, for your support again! Open your eyes and ears to Contaminated because we are working with our official site in facebook. You do a great job with supporting of true underground, wish you all the best, Transcarpathian regards!

The guys behind the horde. From left to right: Andreas(guest session drums), Pete(vocals, guitars, bass), Micke(guest session vocals)


1.Hailz Pete! Because this is your first interview with us, introduce us in your "deathtrip"!
The ground to this solo project took its form in 2001. My visions were not 100% clear then, as I still was in Maze of Torment. But I knew that I wanted to do something on my own. It took some years, but in 2005 I entered the studio and recorded the debut album "Dödsångest". The first 3 albums were released just under the moniker "Flesh", but it's still the same regardless the changing to "The Pete Flesh Deathtrip".

2.How did you got interested in metal?
I got into this metal world in the same way like most others around my age. Bands like WASP, Iron Maiden, Twisted Sister etc. started to take more and more room in the media. I fell for it all directly! The expressions, the energy, the creativity. At that time I lived in a small village and didn't knew so much about the more brutal movement that was going on. But when I was 15 I moved into a bigger town where Merciless lived. I started to read logos from their jackets, that's how I found out about bands like Sodom, Sepultura, Bathory, Mayhem, Nihilist etc. My world and life was then completed.

3.You played in some bands during the years. Can you tell us about them, and if you're satisfied with the results now?
If I only mention the ones that have done albums and not, are The Pete Flesh Deathtrip, Maze of Torment(I didn't played on the last one entitled "Hidden Cruelty"), Deceiver and Thrown. No, I'm not satisfied with them all, maybe 30% of them I would like to redo, like Deceiver's "Riding with the Reaper" which could have been a totally different albu, if I should have waited some time before entering the studio with that one. Maze of Torment's debut album "The Force" will be always special to me. Also the last one I recorded, "Hammers of Mayhem". The first Deceiver M-CD is also a special one like Thrown's "The Suicidal Kings Occult".

4.Now speaking of " The Pete Flesh Deathtrip". It began under the name Flesh. Did you ever played any shows with it? (If yes, who helped you playing live? Was it the same studio line-up?)
No live gigs yet. But it have been close two times. First, the old Deceiver line-up helped me at least to try, then this new one. But when everytime I try, there is some sort of complications. If this will happen, everything must go perfect. I try to think out different scenarios for this to happen, and maybe someday it will happen. It would be cool.

5. Let's speak of your new album "Mortui Vivos Docent". Give us some infos about it(recording process and such). Have you fixed a date for its release?
The recording process of this album was very long, for 2 years. I also changed the studio from "The Abyss Studio" to record with Peter Bjärgö(Crypt of Kerberos, Arcana, Tyrant, The Black etc.). This studio is very close to where I live, so I could decide myself for example when it was the time to record down the bass. Maybe in retroperspective some things could have gone faster to do. Also, I changed the session drummer to Adde(Vinterland, Tyrant, Nunfuckritual etc.) and to find time where we both could work on the drums was harder than we both knew from the beginning. Then also, for the first time I included a guest singer. He actually sings on half of the album: Micke Broberg(Unanimated, Celestial Pain etc.). He have also contributed with some lyrics. I had this idea that I wanted to do something different with this album, just to keep the listening more intersting, not just for the ones that buy the album, but also for me when it comes to the creative parts. I have done many, many albums that all ideas were mine, and it's hard to keep a whole album in a perspective where you just don't repeat yourself. I will keep working like this, but I will use different people all the time. Working like this will also help me to find inspiration, and new inputs on my own creative parts. The album have been delayed so many times now, for a lot of different reasons. But none of them will be layed on Pulverised Records, they are cool. But everything is sent to them now, I hope it will be out sometime in the summer of 2013. The album will also be out on vinyl on Temple of Whores records.

6. What do you think about the Swedish metal scene nowadays compared to the one in the 80's?
For me there are totally different times. First of all, you didn't had internet back then, you had to be creative in a different way to spread your name, on a more root lvel. Today it's more about how many "likes" you have. Don't seem to matter if people who have liked your side, actually like your music. I don't say it's wrong to spread your music in different ways. I also take the time sometimes to ask close friends to maybe spread some, but not in a "down your throught way". And also, if someone supports me, I fucking support them too. Today you also have tons of bands. It's impossible to follow the scene in the same way. There are so many different styles as well. I could be nostalgic, and say that everything was better back then, but that will not help me in any way at all. Things change: some to the better, some to the worse.

7.What is your opinion about Gothenburg metal? What about stuff such as death'n'roll?
When it comes to the older bands from that area, there is a lot of good stuff. About newer stuff, nah, not so interested. Regarding death'n'roll, there is some good stuff. For me it has always been like "a good track is a good track, regardless genre, trend, or what the people say".

8.What do you think about mp3 downloadings?
It have been out there for so long now, that I don't really reflect on it. If you download and like the stuff and  you are into music in a way you should be, you also get the album. If people have some kind of brain, they will understand that bands that play this kind of music don't earn anything from it, it goes to be able to record a new album or maybe print some shirts.

9.Your top 10 all-time favourite metal albums?
Those lists are impossible for me. I have tons of faves. Like you see on the list: no Slayer, no At the Gates, no Dismember, no Mayhem, no Death, no Judas Priest, no Destroyer 666, no The Exploited, no Terra Firma, no Candlemass, no Pink Floyd, no Misfits, no Kreator, no Destruction, no Sodom, no Dead can Dance, no Black Sabbath etc. All of them have done albums I likes as much as those I mention. Anyway, these bands are played a lot right now.
  • Dissection - "Storms of the Light's Bane"
  • Possessed - "Seven Churches"
  • Sadus - "Illusions"
  • Morbid Angel - "Altars of Madness"
  • Iron Maiden - "Killers"
  • Metallica - "Kill'em All"
  • Danzig - "Lucifuge"
  • Bathory - "Blood fire death"
  • Merciless - "The Awakening"
  • Mercyful Fate - "Don't break the oath"

10.Do you know any bands from Hungary, Ukraine and Romania? What other bands can you recommend us(from all the globe and also from Sweden)?
Of course Tormentor. First time I heard "Anno Domini" it was like a new world was opened for me. Are Nokturnal Mortum from your area? Your 2 old bands, brother(Castrum and Domhring). Hm, I should know more. I came across a band called Protest some time ago, I think they are from Romania. I know more. I can recommend "The Curse" from Sweden, also "Necrovation". "Anal Vomit" is great. A lot of bands out there.

11.Now regarding your local kitchen: what foods, drinks, tobaccoes can you recommend us?
I have been sober for almost 7 years(long story). I have forgotten the names of drinks, but there were a lot of bloody mary's to start the day. You get the breakfast in the same time in a way I only do "Snus" nowadays. When it comes tobacco, you know? Grov snus för fan! Food, it can be anything, I'm like a garbage... I eat almost anything.

12.Did you taught your son to play guitar? Does he listens to metal as well?
We play now and then. I never force him. Right now he practice on some Black Sabbath and Accept stuff. Yeah, he likes metal stuff and have started a small, so far, vinyl collection. Faves are WASP, Kiss and Accept. But also enjoys Slayer, Sepultura(He met Paul Jr. last summer, also Dee Snider at the same time). And stuff like that. Also old stuff like Deep Purple and Rainbow. I try to learn the roots of it all. He is just 7 years old, and have met some of his idols. Some months ago we saw WASP, he was bloody blown away. This summer he will see Kiss, Accept(he likes the new album), Saxon etc. I don't try to form him, he is my kid and can listen to whatever he wants. Of course, he also sometimes can sing along with music that simply are "kid" music. I guess every country have some sort of clown that does music and are simply kid music. But if you would ask him what his fave band is, it would be "Pete Flesh Deathtrip". He is loyal.

13.What hobbies do you have besides metal?
Reading and playing football with my son, also fishing. I do not socialize so much with other people. I have my son, girlfriend and her kids, just taking care of the closest.

14. Tack så mycket! That's all for now. The last warning is yours!
Thanx bro for the interview, greatful for the support, you know it!!! People interested in my work are welcome to contact me. Hail the hordes!
