Interviews: The Black Sorcery


In this new occasion we have had the opportunity to interview the Black Metal  band The Black Sorcery from Canada. Check out this band and give them a like on their FACEBOOK PAGE


1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that? 

LM: The Black Sorcery is indicative of evil and arcane magics channeled from the deepest catharsis in the anger and revolt of the self. It’s also very striking and bold, it speaks powerfully.

2.Why did you want to play this genre? 

LM: It’s barbaric nature speaks to us, a bludgeoning power and indignant force that has no space for melody or any pre-conceptions of harmony. Just attack.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed? 

LM: Yes, we are all in some form of musical entanglement. Manås is the man behind Albanach Ar Dheis, with whom my main band the Projectionist did a split with last year, Parageist, Orpheus and Ghast are all active members of the Projectionist. As well, I’ve known Ghast for years as he was in the infamous Operation Winter Mist, of whom I was a big supporter and had played shows with a decade and a half ago.

4. Each band member favourite band? 

LM: The Doors

Orpheus: Monstrosity

Manås: Windir

Ghast: Dissection

Parageist: Nightbringer

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

LM: Crippling, skull splitting anger and bitter anhedonia. Odd observations on existence and perception. Long periods of complete isolation. Targets that oppose what I hold to be virtuous. Death; both applying it and facing it.

6. Where was your last gig? 

LM: Our last gig as the Projectionist with Malphas on drums was in October in support of Rites of Thy Degringolade. As the Black Sorcery, we have yet to strike out in a live setting, but plans are being made.

7. Where would you like to act? 

LM: in a dirty sweaty bar in Finland for a packed house of rabid maniacs. Where I can breath fire and not burn down the establishment. If that were possible.

8. Whom would you like to feature with? 

LM: Archgoat, Revenge, Cultes des Ghoules, Black Witchery

9. Whom not? 

LM: Any boring, self important metal band that stand there in T-shirts headbanging with no connection to the crowd whatsoever expecting a reaction. I’ve seen far too much of that in my long career. 

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that? 

LM: I’m a rare breed that doesn’t give a toss what people think of me. I have no shame. I’ve skullfucked a severed pig’s head on stage and chewed and spat viscera at crowds. I would say fear is subjective and learned. 

Have two drinks before a show if you feel anxious but never more. A sloppy drunk is never as engaging as they think they are in the moment.

Don’t ever go on stage hoping for approval. Spit and rage upon them! Force your music down their throats with no mercy out of pure spite. If your intent is to hate them, you can never let yourself down

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

LM: Decidedly non-metallic but Joy Division for allowing me to chose leaving my ex-wife over suicide. King Diamond for evolving Satanic virtue into a story rather than spewing anti-religious clichés to useless effect and Xasthur for their/his pure wallowing nightmarescape of blackness. Warmarch, for Paulus’ brief use of the inhaled vocal which inspired me to master it.

Although I am a big fan of many bands in a similar vein to The Black Sorcery such as Archgoat and Revenge, i believe that a band whose only inspiration is their peers is doomed to watering down the stream of their intent and to never contribute anything valid or unique.

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

LM: An Argentinian female fan once asked me for pictures of my armpit hair which she wanted for sexual reasons as well as wishing me to order her to insert some chastity tube inside her vagina because I was “ a dark demon of Satan” and I must be the master of her lady parts.

13. What do you think of your fans? 

LM: I think that we make music to suit ourselves. If no one likes it, I’m fine with that because we make albums as a catharsis and a need to create for personal satisfaction. If people enjoy it, then I presume they can identify with our frustrations and hatespeech. To that end, I hope they find what they were seeking.

14. What do you think of our site?

LM: I think that underground metal thrives on the pulse of written word passed around the world in any dirty form that may crawl and twist its way to the homes of those who seek it. If there were no such methods of delivering news of metals, fans would struggle far more greatly to quench their thirst. To that end, we are appreciative.
