Interviews: NASTERGAL


This is a new interview with the Black Metal band NASTERGAL from New Zealand/Ukraine/Argentina and South Africa. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

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

Nastergal is the Afrikaans word for deadly nightshade. The main members of the band are both Afrikaans and we wanted to use a name that represented our South African culture and Black Metal inspiration.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

It's dark and melodic, brutal and technical, and it presents a challenge.

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

We met each other years ago in a band called Funeral God and then created a band called Mjollnir, which is where we first started playing Black Metal.

4. Each band member's favorite band? 

Rising Force, King Diamond, Dark Funeral, Dimmu Borgir.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

J.S. Bach and all the instrumental guitar masters, and of course Dark Funeral.

6. Where was your last gig?

Nastergal is not currently a live band. The four members live in four different countries.

7. Where would you like to act?

If we could play live, then Wacken.

8. Whom would you like to feature with? 

Dimmu Borgir and King Diamond

9. Who not? 

Whatever pop music nonsense is popular today.

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

Know your music inside and out, have fun on stage, stay sober and think on your feet.

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

Bathory, Manowar, Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force, Dimmu Borgir, Old Man's Child, Limbonic Art, King Diamond, Dark Funeral

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

Our fans aren't that weird.

13. What do you think of your fans? 

We appreciate the support and interest and the hardcore attitude to extreme metal.

14. What do you think of our site?

Well-rounded, comprehensive presentation. Quality articles covering bands from all genres. A good read.

15. Something to add?

We think that well-composed music will always stay timeless and we have so much to learn from the great composers. It's such a shame what the brainwashed public gets fed on the radio today, which is a sure sign of the social decay of an unremarkable and destructive society.
