Filii Nigrantium Infernalium Interview

> 1. Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band since the recording and release of the new album?
> >
> Nothing, except thinking on our next songs and recordings. We're back into the shades. Dust to dust.
>  
> >
> > 2.You recently put out a new album, can you tell us a little bit more about it, the musical direction it has taken and also how does it differ past releases?
> >
> > It's the same multi-directional metal we evolved from 91 to 95, a blend of  heavy, black, thrash... We want it heavy and fierce, now as then. But now we deliver to evil much better. But everything we could say about ourlbum is in   this review by Katie Metcalfe:
http://destructive-music.com/?p=11376   It's       impossible to be more comprehensive and empathetic with our album than this.
> >
> > 3.The band has a history that goes back to 89, but so far there are only 2 full lengths, a few ep's and a demo, what has been the cause for delays?
> >
> > Life is life, you know. We don't follow plans or schedules, this ain't work nor hobby, so when time comes time comes. There are no delays when there is no compromise. And we never took compromise from any kind of source.
> >
> > 4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the new release?
> >
> > Blasphemy; the world as a labyrinth; hedonism; libertarian necrorocknroll. Rebellion. No flags, no masters. The bizarre and the grotesque. Satan. Nothing for nothing for nothing for nothing: but we must go on, riding our particular Orgy through days of flesh and blood.
> >
> > 5.I have read that the band started out as Bactherion but changed the name, what was the cause of the name change and also what is the meaning and inspiration behind the name Filii Nigrantium Infernalium?
> >
> > Well, we preferred then the Sons of Infenal Darkness, but in latin since it's the language of the Catholic Church, which is our favourite pushing-ball.
> >
> > 6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?
> >
> >Hard to answer. Many to list. Mainly in Portugal. Our performance is quite classical black/thrash, you know... corpse paint and spikes and  bullets, but not in the current fake silicon pseudoblack metal franchise, neither in the fascist post-true BM generation (I mean, everything afterBathory/Venom/Hellhammer/Celtic Frost is second-hand BM, anyway... all tha "True" "kvlt" thing, empty headed fascist thing... is dramatically despisable) We're into... a more direct-metalpunks attitude. We like to BANG YOUR HEAD AGAINST THE WALL UNTIL IT BLEEDS. No pose, no plastic lame BM, no supermarket fashion pseudogoths, no folkish prefascist circus. RAW
> NECRO ROCK N ROLL. Voivod rule. Darkthrone rule. Motorhead rule. Venom rule.
>  
> >
> > 7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
> >
> > No future! we'll just go on and creating. Only creation matters. Promotion we don't care about; I  only answer to interviews from people who shows to understand and feel our dark energy (like you do). Other "promotional" or marketing bourgois buy-sell-buy-sell is non of our... BUSSINESS. So we don't make plans like corporations or supportive structures do (like magazines, blogs, etc - but obviosly it's vital for the out coming of newcreations...).
>  
>  

>  > 8.The new album was released by both Chaosspere Recordings and Hell Productions, do you feel these 2 labels have done a lot for getting your  name out?
> >
> > Yes, they're definitely the labels we wanted. Local, widespread as well, sheer underground and completely commited to our sound and aesthetic principles. The fact that they belong to our envoroment, our local underground scene, has many advantages: mainly, that every matter may be
> spoken around a BEER!!!
> >
> > 9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black and thrash metal?
> >
> >    We don't keep up a classical "fan-group" structure, so we don't really know. But we don't care, anyway. We don't care about numbers or boundaries. Only individual aprreciation matters to us, regardless its geographical origin, or it's contribution for a "massive" support. The massive fan shit is really annoying. The last Maiden show I went to was really ordinary because of that, in my perception. The huge fan-base of sheeping followers of bands is the heritage of the star-system which was  created in the 50's with Elvis, and later on The Beatles, etc, and that has  nothing to do with underground. Fan means fanatical: well, fanatical people are assholes who pride themselves about NOT listening to other different bands or styles or whatever. So fuck all this.
> >
> > 10.What is going on with the other musical projects these days?
> >
> I don't have other musical projects; everything we create is for Filii Nigrantium Infernalium.
> >
> > 10.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
> >
> > No dogmas, nothing predefined: we'll keep up this heavy and harsh riffing,
> experimenting at times, and trying to BE HEAVY (Paul Baloff: "Why heavy, why so heavy?" - The answer, brother, is blowing in the storm)
>  
> >
> >
> > 11.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays/
>  
> Metal, metal: from Judas Priest or WASP to Venom, Celtic Frost or Slayer. Obviously, Exodus, Bathory, Metallica (obviosly, pre-black album), VOIVOD!, and Carnivore. Ah, nowadays I listen to this bands, and also Pantera (Power Metal and I am the Night). We like also some punk bands, but that's not an influence in our music, and some classical and blues. We listen to many
things, obviously. Some death metal, also.

> >
> >
> > 12.I have read that the band considers themselves as one of the first anarcho black metal bands, what are you opinions and thoughts on all the crusties and punks that have jumped on the bandwagon and created musicthat is more close to being crust than actual black metal?
> >
>  
>      I certainly prefer crusties and punks than nazi BM skinheads who infected the metal scene through the 90's and part of last decade. That kind of idiotic brainless and unmusical "black metal" has nothing to do with the original BM (Venom, Hellhammer, Bathory) which, by the way, was
quite rockish and even crusty at times. I mean, if you define Crust as the sound "created" by bands as Hellbastard or Amebix. This kind of stuff is far more interesting and powerful than all that bunch of "pagan/NS/nationalist/trVe" BM which tends to be as boring as a bad grindcore band rehearsal recorded in a tape from outside the garage. And ideologically we're undoubtfully much more close to libertarian ideas than, certainly NOT, to the military fascist shit that comes from that FALSE BM. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7xvl343jVY (Preview- an example. Rock and roll should be about freedom and experimentation. Not that kind of"necroboyscout" repressive stuff. Now than these fascists jerks are about to take over Europe, through governments and political actions, they don't need to parasite our music with their poor and shameful unriffing. In Portugal, this turmoil has been really productive, with bands like Martelo Negro, Vizir, Goatfukk or Disthrone coming out, playing live and distressing the atmosphere in gigs, which thanks to fascist black metal was
really shitty. SO nothing against crust or unorthodox BM, definitely. BM was supposed to be unorthodox, anyway. Do what thou wilt.

>  
> > 13.How would you describe your views on Satanism, Occultism and AntiChristianity?
> >
> We're antichristian as antireligious. No pastors, no sheep, no ratleadings. So we regard satanism and occultism as aesthetical sources to mock and artistically attack on religions. Every monotheistic religion and also the kind of tribal identity endured by pagan religions. I think that
> the desire to return, as if it was possible, to edenic pagan ancient times, is as moron as the belief in heaven and hell. Every religion works out as a sheep conductor; whether is a monoidiotheistic one or a politheistic one.
>  
>  
> > 14.Outside of music what are some of your interests?
> >
> Pleasure, art and knowledge, which are often mixed. I loath sports and masses events.
>  
>  
> 15.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
>  

Yes: thank you very much for the opportunity to express some of my opinions on subjects which have been worrying me for at least the latest 2 decades. I don't really know what's the purpose or the effect, the usefulness or even the pleasure in reading interviews, but... We'll, we all do that,
isn't it? I really tried to make an interesting contribution by answering this. Excuse me for my delay. ROCK HARD-RIDE FREE.
