Interview  with  Ayat  done  by  Patrick posted on 10-17-17

Interview  with  Ayat  done  by  Patrick 
1. Hails when did you  first  discover  metal  music  and  who  were  some of the first bands you  listened to? Who  are  some of your  current  favorite bands? 

Filthy Fuck: Oh Jesus Christ... I'm 35, divorced, miss my kid, bitter, depressed and promoting what is essentially a very elaborate sonic suicide letter and we start with this question. Fucking hell. I was 12-13, man. Iron Maiden, and stuff. I listen to a lot of things right now, but mostly children songs for my 3 year old. You know, the old school classics of the first and second wave like humpty dumpty and Old Macdonald had a farm. I don't talk to Sadogoat. But I think he's more into the newer, gayer stuff like Paw Patrol. I can ask him if you press me for an answer. 

2. Ayat  was  formed in  2004  when  did you  get the  idea  to  start this  band?And  how  did you  choose the  name Ayat  as the band name? Does it have  a  special  meaning?

FF: That's a very pertinent question. It was formed in 2004 so I would wager we got the idea a little bit before 2004 or 2004 but certainly not after. And yes Ayat does have a meaning. It is the first thing you see when you google our name. 

3. What  is  the  current  line up  of the  band? And  who  would  you say  are Ayat's biggest  influences? 

FF: It's still me and Sadogoat, like always. Who is our biggest influence? I would say,definitely women. All them women. Mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, ex-wives, prostitutes, unobtainable women, easy women, cities that eat their children with the madness of women, the indiscriminate loyalty to the death of women, where to stop, man, I don't think you can extract more from a man until his walls are down for a woman. The hurt is either one that flattens the edifice of your very identity or you use it to build yourself. Either way, it is very formative and our biggest influence in our growth as human beings. I always believed Ayat's songs areessentially love songs, mostly always, but kind of sick in the head. 

4. Carry On,Carrion  is the  bands third  full-length  how  long  did  it  take  to  write  the music  for  the  new  release? 
FF: 2 years. 

5. Who  usually  handles  writing the lyrics  and  what are  some  subjects  written  about on  Carry On, Carrion? 

FF: I do. And it's the usual dross of homicide, lust, Islamic blasphemy, killing a baby with cigarette burns, a flying gigantic pig, you know, wholesome family fun. 

6. Besides  the  new  release  are the  previous two  releases  still  available?Besides  physical releases  does the band  have  any other  merchandise  available if  yes  what  is  available  and where  can the readers  buy  it? 

FF: No. Not to my knowledge. Releasing something is not really for you. It is an exhibitionist parading of exposed guts that you happened to stumble upon. Ifsomeone finds something for Ayat then that's just one more person I exposed my privates to. It's thrilling but I prefer to remain a pervert in a brown coat scaring girls with my penis in dark alleys, I don't think we want to take Ayat on the road or to the next level and scare throngs of girls with my penis at Wembley. I like my black metal to remain as inaccessible as possible and at grassroots level. People make fun of bedroom black metal but that's how fucking Quorthon did it. Your own bedroom is the space that is most you. So, no. No CDs out there, no merchandise. Nothing. To my knowledge. We don't even have a website.

7. What  does  black  metal  mean  to you? 

FF: I'm not sure anymore. It certainly saved us at some point in our lives. We're at a crossroad now. We don't know how we feel towards the genre anymore. Maybe we'll go on a quest to find ourselves, and release a blues album, or get guest rappers for our next release. 
But seriously now, Black metal had been extremely important to our society and its decline is reflected in the rise of the alt-right. Extreme metal, gaming, even the dungeons and dragons shtick, were all refuge for marginalized white men when I was young. To be a Black Metal fan was enough to be ostracized. It was a struggle explaining to people we were decent. But now it seems grandstanding and insulting people through the medium of art is becoming slowly irrelevant when you can just scream nigger at people in the bus. Black Metal is the product of the conservative Reagan age, the insanity of the Trump age left us behind and I am not sure how relevant we still are. The only thing we can pray for to be relevant again is that the civilized world falls into fascism and so Black metal and Punk could go back to being relevantly dangerous. But for now, that's the West's problem. The good thing about the East, in this instance, is that we are like 30-40 years behind as a society. So an anti-Islamic record  like ours would still make ripples. What I'm trying to say is that the scene is in trouble and we need to figure out how to be relevant, but personally as Ayat we're extracting the last bits of honey from that tired old tit. So basically, fuck you and good luck.

8. Other  then  Ayat  do you  currently  have  any  other  bands or solo projects  you work  with?If  yes  please  tell  the  readers  a  little  about  them? 

FF: No. 

9. When  not  working  on new  music or  band  business  what  do you  like to  do  in your  free  time?
FF: I like to think on how I will extract cold revenge on the people who wronged me. I fantasize about how much I want them to suffer. And I struggle with that every day. We are not all born privileged and life has a way of setting a man and a woman back. And hatred can consume you. And it's always a struggle to keep your baser instincts in check. When I am not working, I am just stopping myself from lashing out like a caveman and just kick everyone at the mall in the face. I don't think I require help and I'd like to think this the struggle of modern man in a society that had fallen into strange spiritual disrepair. I moved to the West to escape the heat of the Middle East, you know. And things have not been going well in the capitalist paradise of North America. That's all I'll say. 

10. Thank you  for  taking  the  time  to  fill  this  interview  out  do you  have  any  final  words for the  readers? 

FF: Thank you for interviewing me. I haven't done that in years and apologize if I sounded too forceful. You're doing your job I guess, but to be fair your questions had been awfully formulaic, you could've replaced our band name and album name and you could've given that to any band. It felt lazy. And I felt that needed to be punished. 
As for the readers, I'm sure most of them hate me right now or think I'm trying too hard. The Ayat fans know us well and probably enjoyed the exchange very much. In either cases, I don't really care. We have a new album. Hello there! It's Ayat! Remember us? Buy it, it's just superb, really, forgot what its' called, 9 years in the making, swan song and stuff, chickichicki bumbum, you know what to do. And remember, reader! Downloading makes your penis smaller. Mine is an inch and a half. Don't be like me. Buy our album. Or download the lyrics too. And the artwork. We put a lot of work in it on all fronts so get the full experience.
Cheers! And stay happy!

Interview  with  Ieschure  done by  Patrick posted on 10-15-17

Interview  with  Lilita  vocals,all instruments  of Ieschure  done by  Patrick

1.Hails   Lilita   please  introduce  yourself  to  the  readers?

I am Lilita Arndt, a mastermind of the black metal formation Ieschure.

2.When  did you  become  interested in  writing and playing  music?

My interest for music began in my childhood, when I wrote lyrics and later tried to create simple melodies for them on acoustic guitar. 

3.What  were  some first instruments  you  learned to play?Are you  self taught  or did you  take lessons when  first  starting out?

My first instrument was an acoustic guitar, then keyboards. I taught to play all by myself.  

4.When  did you  first  get the idea  to  start  Ieschure? And  how did you  come up  with the name  Ieschure as the name of the band? Does it  have a  special meaning?

I took part in different projects as a singer. But I always wanted to create my own music with my own melodies, lyrics, singing and atmosphere. To create and experiment with melodies and vocals in that way in which I wanted. That is why I decided to start my own project Ieschure in which I can do all this.
The name “Ieschure” has a special meaning, but now I prefer it to be known only for me

 5.The  Shadow is Ieschure  debut  full length which  will  be  released  through Iron BoneHead Productions. How  did you  come  in  contact  with this  legendary  label?

In the search for label for my debut album I found that Iron BoneHead Productions has a strong occult character and is focused on the bands with pure black metal sound. I decided to write him and was glad to get a positive reply about releasing my album. It’s an honor for me to be a part of this great label. 

6. How  long  did it  take you  to  write  the music for  the debut  release?

It took 1,5 year. The idea appeared in the end of 2015. In 2016 I seriously start to write the album. 

7.Besides the debut  LP The  Shadow  does  the band  have  any  other merchandise  available   for the  readers? If  yes  what  is  available  and where  can  the  readers  buy  the  merchandise?

I did not think about this yet. Maybe in future other merchandise will appear.

8.Lilita  I  believe you  are  the  sole member  of  the band. Would you like  to find new  musicians  to  work  with or  do you  prefer working  alone?

I’m not sure that it is possible now. But I am always open to change. If it would be a good way to embody my ideas I would try to work with other musicians.

9.If you  had  the  opportunity  to  work  with  any  musicians{past or present} who  would you  like  to  work  with?

I would like to work with people who are sincerely interested in music, who have the same ideas, without “star fever”.

10.Ieschure comes  out  of  the  Ukraine's  black metal  scene what  is your  opinion  of  Ukraine's  black  metal  scene?

In Ukraine there are a lot of bands who became very famous and many bands who are still in the deep underground. It is hard for me to compare myself with all this bands because I try to go my own way with my own opinion about music. 

11.Who  are your  all-time  favorite  Ukraine  bands and  artists? Are  their  any  new  bands you  feel  the  readers  should  check  out?

I cannot say that I listen to Ukrainian bands all time. For me, it’s not important from which country the band is. Mostly I like the first wave of black metal bands, their sound and atmosphere. Besides black metal I like the old doom metal.

12. What  does  black  metal  mean  to you?

For me black metal is really a dark side of Art. It’s not just a music style. Mixture of music, theatre and philosophy, more irrational than other music styles, full of paradoxes, concentrating the strongest emotions, hatred and some perverted love to life. That is why it is perfect.

13.I  believe I  read  that you  are heavily into  occult  studies  when  did you  become  interested  in  studying  the occult?

All my life, since childhood I felt the presence of hidden forces in the world. Gradually they become more and more interesting to me. I think that the main thing that made me really interested in occultism was the knowing (realizing) that I will die some day. 

14.Who  are  some  occultist  you  like to read and  study? Beside the occult  do you read and study any  other subjects?

I get a great inspiration from the works of Aleister Crowley, Eliphas Levi , Stanislas de Guaita, George Gurdjieff.  
Of course I have many interests: my work as a designer, all forms of art, mythology, psychology, history, travelling and everything that can give me new knowledge about the world.

15.Besides  working  in  Ieschure  are you  currently  working  with  any other  projects or  bands?

At this moment I don’t work with other bands. Now I work on my dark ambient project.

16.Thank  you  for  taking  the time to  fill  this  interview  out  do you  have  any  final  comments  for the  readers?

Thanks you for the interesting interview and support.

Interview  with  Goatpenis done by  Patrick

4.What  was the  reason  the band  disbanded  in 1997?

7.How long  did it take  the band to  write  the music for Anesthic  Vapor?Does  the whole  band  work on the music or does one  member usually  write  everything?

Sabbaoth - We all take part on it. I wrote most of the lyrics, thems and my partners supported me with ideas, suggestions and opinions. Most of music are composed by Virrugus and some were mine. The drums is completed by MGM.6666 that has several years of dedication and experience to metal!!!!

Sabbaoth - We are going to play next November (2017) here in Brazil in a festival called Brazilian Ritual Fifth Attack with Blasphemy, Holocausto and Sex Trash!!!!!

11.What  does  underground  metal  mean  to you?

Sabbaoth - Nowadays, it means a shame. There are no respect, lack of attitude, the audience and bands are quite immature. it´s a pitty but metal is dying day by day!!

13.Goatpenis comes  out  of the legendary Brazilian  metal  scene  what  is your  opinion  of Brazil's metal  scene  over  the  years?

Sabbaoth - Brazilain bands have great chance to record and share their material nowadays due internet and media. Unfortunatelly I can´t see creativity and originality among them all...most want to copy other bands and are really closed minded! 

14.Who  are  some of your  all-time  favorite  bands  from  Brazil?Are  their  any  new  bands from Brazil  that you  feel  the  readers  should  check  out?

YES!! Necrobutcher and Apostasia are the bands I do support forever because they were far beyond the time. Nowadays, bands like Soddamed, Somberland, Fatal Incarned, Volkmort MUST be checked because they do a great and serious work!!! 

15.Thank you  for  taking  the  time  to  fill this  interview  out  do you  have  any  final   comments  for  the  readers?
