Interviews: Ancine

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Black Metal artist, Ancine, from the USA. Check out the interview and check out the artist LINKTREE.

1. What’s the concept behind Ancine’s band name?

It’s technically not a real word, so it can mean anything you want. I took it from the title of the movie “The Ancines Woods”.

2. You have a most interesting hybrid of sounds. Why did you want to play this genre?

It’s a big mix of everything I’m into. I love American roots music and grew up listening to it, the blues especially. But I also like my music to be really dark and creepy. I think most musicians just play the music that they want to hear.

3. What albums or artists have inspired your sound?

Even if they weren’t inspirational stylistically, were there any that were conceptual? I’m really influenced by delta blues and hill country blues artists like Robert Johnson and Mississippi Fred McDowell. And then on the other side of things, my two biggest influences are Christian Death and Samhain. “Only Theatre of Pain” and “November Coming Fire” are the darkest, most sinister-sounding albums ever made. And the blues is the original Devil’s music, so to me, it makes sense to mix these two genres together. Conceptually and stylistically I’m also greatly influenced by black metal.

4. Where do you feel the sound of the next release will be?

I’m hoping the sound of the actual albums will be a little less rough around the edges. I recorded “Death Hymns” all by myself and there was a lot of learning going on. And cheap equipment. I’m hoping to improve my techniques with each album. As far as the music, it’s going to have the same vibe. I have a couple songs written for the next release and they’re quite somber sounding. I’m a lot more depressed now than when I was writing the first album so that will definitely have an effect on the sound

5. Do you write within certain themes or stories?

Death and religion are the two main themes.

6. Do you have any plans to present this music live and if so, what’s your vision? 

Nothing at this time. I don’t foresee myself ever playing live.

7. If you could perform anywhere, specifically in an unconventional location, where would it be?

An old church. John Wayne Gacy’s crawlspace. A swamp. Spahn Ranch. Or Aokigahara, that suicide forest in Japan.

8. Do you have to be in a certain mood or location to be inspired to write?

I’m constantly in an awful, bitter mood, so I’m always ready to write.

9. Your track, “Like Shooting Locusts in a Barrel” has a most interesting title. What’s the concept behind the song?

It’s a song about a lonely man who hears the insects in his cellar talking to him. The story takes on a “Son of Sam” trajectory.

10. Thanks for your time. These last words are yours.

Thanks for the interview. If anyone is interested in hearing some god-awful music head to and check it out.
