Interviews: Nazgul Rising

This is a new interview with the Skate Punk band Nazgul Rising from Italy. Check out the interview and follow the artist on his FACEBOOK PAGE.

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

The members of Nazgul Rising are passionate about Tolkien and the Lord of the Rings. We are particularly fascinated by the character of the Nazgul. They were once kings but were corrupted by the dark lord into servants of evil. The name of the band emphasizes these men's transition to darkness and all that made them evil. Corruption, lust for power, and submission in exchange for something have always reflected man's vulnerability. So, the name "Nazgul Rising" is a metaphor for the evil that is born within us, the dark alter ego wants to come out and take over.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

I was always inspired by black metal of Scandinavian origin, after some demos, we decided to insert keyboards moving on the symphonic. Being passionate about metal and classical music I combined the two genres.

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

I and the other two founding members came from different bands with local experiences. I had been without a band for several years and I was looking for components that were available to play extreme metal. After a week we were ready for our first live show.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Would be too many to mention but surely for all members of the Iron Maiden.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

Inspiration comes when you least expect it. A song can be born from a guitar riff or simply from a sound or something that I have in my head and I have to pull out. Lyrics many times start either with a story or from an image I try to transform into sensations.

7. Where would you like to perform?

Definitely as for any band, in big festivals. But my dream is to play my songs with a real orchestra. 8. Whom would you like to perform with?  With the biggest black metal bands, in a small club or a big stage.

9. Whom not? 

I have no preference, I think that however when you propose a show the bands should play in the same context of the evening and the musical genre.

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

With experience I learned to not care about everything before going on stage, surely a beer helps a lot.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Dimmu Borgir, Emperor, Dark Funeral, Abigor, and the early Cradle of Filth.

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

During a show, we had to bite a pill to make fake blood be drained from the mouth. So, someone asked us to spit blood on his face.

13. What do you think of your fans? 

They are amazing, few but good.

14. What do you think of our site? 

We like it, it has well cared for rich news and above all, it has an intuitive menu. 

15. Something to add?

Just thank you for this interview.
