Lycanthropy Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and release of the new album?

Gunner: Currently I’m working on 2 new songs. When the main patterns gonna be ready I’ll
work with Oleg I. on the additional arrangements. It’s gonna be a new experience.

2.In August you had released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

Gunner: It has a very clear sound, a little too clean, but I like it. There's a living feel.

Furious: We tried to do our best. And our sound engineer, who is actually a good friend of mine, put his every effort during mixing and mastering as well. It gave us an ability to reach higher level of sound compared to our past releases.

3.Can you tell us a little bit more about the topics you have covered in the lyrics on the new recording?

Gunner: lyrically it’s a total madness.

Furious: There is nothing to hide. You can hear everything by yourself. One interesting point – lyrics on track # 2. In fact these lyrics were taken from real life. Thanks to Mr. Zhukov -you crazy bastard!

4.I know that the bands name is related to shapeshifting into a werewolf, how does this name fit in with the musical style that you play?

Gunner: it reflects inner power of a human being.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

Gunner: Currently we don’t play live. Back in 2008-2009 we did some really good shows with the old lineup.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

Gunner: Maybe in the future, but not in 2017.

Furious: We think about it. But the members of our band are divided by borders, countries, lands and seas - thousands of km. So it is possible but for now it is hard to organize everything on a good level.

7.The new album was released on 'Lower Silesian Stronghold', are you happy with the support that they have given you so far?

Gunner: There is a lot of work to be done.

Furious: Not all that much. Some of our past releases were promoted better.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black and death metal?

Gunner: it’s quite positive in Europe, but not so good in Russia or Ukraine. But it is how it is. It doesn’t really matter for me.

9.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part of?

Furious: I participated in a few projects in the past, but I do not keep in touch with their members at the moment. I mean, I see them from time to time but that is not about the music.

Gunner: I think Oleg has something to say on this one...

Oleg I.: I have a solo bm project called KhĂ´ra where a new album is coming soon and will include some interesting guests.

10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

Gunner: time will show. Can’t answer at the moment. Maybe a bit more atmospheric...

Oleg I.: I hope we will incorporate some more variety of genres into the bm we currently play.

11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

Gunner: I keep on listening the same bands: Mayhem, Dark Funeral, Enthroned, Marduk, Dissection, Lucifugum, Rotting Christ, Belenos, Morbid Angel, Obituary, Terrorizer, Carcass, Legion of the Damned, Hypocrisy, Impaled Nazarene, My Dying Bride, Emperor, Setherial. Plus a lot of more underground stuff, such bands as Grift, Forndom, Twilight’s Embrace.

Furious: I am inspired by the new wave of BM from USA – Nightbringer, for example.

12.How would you describe your satanic and anti christian views?

Gunner: undefiled wisdom instead of hypocritical self-deceit.

Oleg I.: I don't care about any religion, only about how are the individuals who practice it.

13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Gunner: Stay Strong & Keep on Fighting!

Furious: Keep listening to dark music.
