Interviews: YAGON

We recently had the pleasure of interviewing Yagon, an atmospheric black metal one-man project hailing from Israel. Yagon's music is deeply rooted in a concept of sadness and mystery, drawing inspiration from bands such as Summoning, Rapture, and Mist of Misery. In this interview, we explore the origins of the band name, Yagon's musical influences, and much more.

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

I thought about a concept that I could use for my music and inner thoughts. The main concept that came to my mind was sadness. I looked for a word that could reflect it best and came up with YAGON which means deep sadness in Hebrew.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

I chose this genre because I relate to it the most. It combines two of my favourite genres – black and doom metal. Through them, I can express both sadness and mystery.

3. Which is your favourite band?

I am alone, so my favourite bands – are Hypocrisy, Summoning, Rapture, and Mist of Misery.

4. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

13. What do you think of our site?

I would like to take the opportunity to thank the site for giving metal bands the chance to deliver their message to a wider audience.

14. Something to add?

I would like to thank WormHoleDeath for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to grow. Moreover, I would like to thank Yael Flynn whose lyrics made my music come alive. Finally, because I am a one-man project, I would like if other band members to join me on my path.
