Interviews: Withermoon

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Black Metal band, Withermoon from the USA. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

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

We were originally called "The Evils Of Man". We decided to change the name just before our first gig. We made a list of approximately 160 names and after a few weeks of deliberation, unanimously agreed on Withermoon. To us, The moon represents lunacy and the darkness in all of us. The word "withering" means to decay or die slowly.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We all enjoy our black metal

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

Malik Nepharious knew Nazarith from high school, and Nahpi was a very close friend. Morgothoth was introduced to us by one of our previous guitarists.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Malik - Behexen

Nahpi - Lurker Of Chalice

Morgothoth - Sargeist

Nazarith - Drowning The Light

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Artists like Horna, Darkthrone, Mutillation, Burzum, Sargeist, etc. inspire our sound as we look up to them. Lyrically, life in general and personal human observation.

6. Where was your last gig?

It was supposed to be at The Bricks Rock Bar, but was changed to The Blvd

7. Where would you like to act?

1720 or Don Quixote would be nice to perform for starters. Steelfest would be a dream

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Sumeria if they were still around. Too many bands to list only one.

9. Whom not?

If the show makes sense to us, we would not turn it down. We are not the kind to single out or call out anyone publicly. The scene should support itself. If there is something about one does not like, they do not need to listen. If I criticize a band, it's an attempt to help them improve and I will have that conversation personally. 

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

Yes. My solution is to have a few beers before the set. Not too few or too many, but enough to break the anti-social wall and have a little more confidence. I still get stage fright if we take long breaks between performing. I will add though when you realize there is no such thing as a perfect show, all you can do is minimize any potential mistakes.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Horna, Darkthrone, Mutillation, Burzum, Sargeist

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

A fan once asked me to select from various pictures of women. He was asking whom I felt should be his satanic alter. I told him that it should be whichever woman HE felt most attracted to, as the point of using the opposite sex, or whichever sex you are attracted to, as an alter is to sexually charge the ritual. Have had many strange messages from fans but I definitely consider that the strangest.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Friends with many of them whom I know

14. What do you think of our site?

Seems to be in great working order. I like that it has many ways to listen to bands as if the bands have a say. I would wager that whoever created this site actually gives a fuck about the scene. Cheers!

15. Something to add?

We are honored for your interest in spreading our venom. Keep it raw motherfuckers!
