Interviews: WAN

In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the Black Metal band WAN from Sweden. Check out the interview and this band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

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

It came rather spontanious, yet it fitted like a condom. For those unaware, it´s an old english word, synonymous to gloomy/pale, and I´d say it very well represents our sucky working class lives, as well as our music and our less than tanned semi-fat physique

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

The reason we started WAN and wallow in this genre was to bring back the genuine filth and honour the oldschool scene and its innovators. The development and progression have really dragged metal in the urinal throughout the decades
3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Yes, the three founding members which was me, Isengrim and Aganaroth knew each other. I hail from a different dark region and got to know the other two maniacs 3-4 years before WAN was forged. Isengrim and Aganaroth go way back
4. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

We find inspiration in the cold north, in our never ending hate towards christianity, in darkness, death and in our pagan heritage. Of course a few legendary persons such as Lemmy and Quorthon also inspires. And alcohol is an abysmal source of inspiration

5. Where was your last gig?

It was at Sticky Fingers in the swedish town Gothenburg. We did one hell of a gig! As did fellow bands RIMFROST and VOODUS

6. Where would you like to act?

Well, wherever really. As long as some filthy fans are attending, supporting our cause and banging their heads beyond disfigurement.

7. Whom would you like to feature with?

Most of those who come to mind are sadly no longer around. But we obviously got our hero Cronos and his VENOM. And a few other ravishing acts like AURA NOIR, MALLEUS, NIFELHEIM, KHOLD, MONSTRAAT. And it would be a killer to play along Mr. T G Warrior and his TRIPTYKON

8. Whom not?

Hmm… I can think of a couple, but I´ll be diplomatic and keep my mouth shut. What really matters is that bands are somewhat alike in style and genre. Or atleast a decent fucking metal band. Not some lame dickcheese act like TAKIDA

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

No, none of us have any issues regarding that. To he or she who does, I can just recommend to go up there with confidence and do your thing. People will always have opinions, but who gives a fuck!?

10. What bands have inspired you the most?

That´s a no-brainer. BATHORY, HELLHAMMER, VENOM. The essential, the root, the black origin.

11. What do you think of your fans?

We highly appreciate those bastards! They might be crazy, dirty, missing a few teeth, have 3 inch toenails more yellow than an american schoolbus.. but if they are fans of WAN and fans of oldschool blackmetal they have our respect for sure

12. What do you think of our site?

I´d say the site itself isn´t what´s most important. Rather that there are people who takes the time and makes an effort. Devoted to Him. Devoted to metal. In my mind that´s pure excellence

13. Something add?

Thanks for featuring WAN on your site! Beware our 10 year anniversary later this year. And the European tour in May. Enjoy the filth!!
