Interviews About Albums: Charun - Impending Decline (2024)

In this new interview, we sat down with the Italian Progressive Death Metal band Charun to ask questions about their album "Impending Decline".

1. What can you say about this new EP/CD?

This is an old-school death metal album. We wanted to create a great, dark wall of sound, through which to express and actualize our personal way to death metal, devoting care to the song form. We've tried to make the sound raw and yet enough clear to listen to every instrument.

2. What is the meaning of the EP/CD name?

Impending decline is about how the world is truly fucked up. Looking out onto the world gives us a sad view, with so little hope...

3. Which one is the composer of the CD/EP?

Composition in Charun is teamwork. Every one of us is free to write riffs, melodies, and rhythmic structures. No one comes up at the rehearsals saying something like: ”Hey, I have a new song: it's ready”. This is not the way it goes in Charun. We need to jam, we need to create a continuous interplay.

4. If you had to pick one song, which one would you pick?

Maybe I would pick Forsaken path, not because it's my favorite (even if I really love it), but most of all because it shows the way for the future of Charun

5. Is there a special message in this EP/CD? If there is what it is?

I think the message is the music itself; we have no moral messages; we play death metal and the lyrics need to be aligned with the style of the music. It's all about death, grief, blood and desolation.

6. Are there some lyrics that you'd love to share?

I really do like Relentless Fate's lyrics. I call that song “the spooky one”. It's about a carnifex and a victim. The lyrics are deliberately imprecise about who the Carnifex is; you may choose: maybe it's a demon, maybe a bad guy who loves emotional abuse. In the end, the victim has no hope.

7. Which inspirations have been important for this album? Like musically or friends, family, someone you'd love to thank especially?

The old school american forefathers have definitely influenced our work; you know the names: Morbid Angel, Immolation, Deicide, and many others. The whole band loves also black metal, especially the most cruel and dark ones, you know, bands like Mayhem and the old Emperor.

8. Something to add?

I would like to thank my band brothers, my wife Francesca for sharing creativity in Relentless Fate lyrics creation, Andrew Markuszewski and New Density for the opportunity, and of course Blake Judd, for appreciation and support. Last but not least, Francesca Saglia and Nic Huber, our press agents, for doing such a great job, and Marco Genitoni from WFR for his help. The greatest thank you goes to everyone who supports us: radios, webzines, and, above all, both the old Coram Lethe's fans and the new ones: we can't wait to headbang with all of you \m/
