Interview With "VORNTH"

interview with Swedish thrash metal band "VORNTH"

1. What lyrical theme do you guys use in your music?
- Anything apart from depression and partying

2. What bands have influenced your band and its sound?
- Motörhead, Angelwitch, Kat, Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Judas priest, Agony (Sweden), Blessed Death etc. When you work for such a long time on a band you have a very clear view on what you are though...

3. What made you guys decide to form a band?
- We wanted to be in a band, best choice of my life! –Also we had an idea about what we could do with it. Escape was one thing too.

4. What is your opinion on sites posting your guys material and other bands material?
- Both good that it is accessible for people that are young and poor and can’t get/afford it, and bad since you have no control over how it is presented, we want quality and the best in everything we release even if a cover would be ugly it is meant to be. Everithing looks the same on the internet, equality means stagnation and death to music.

5. How do you guys feel about the classifications in metal? like deathcore,
- Depends on what your purposes are. The term “post-something”, is fucking ridiculous. It is convenient to find out if a band sticks to something. To me there are two; True and False Metal, and maybe the sub-genres; Fucking True Metal and Fucking False metal...hehe No when you buy records it is very handy! –So you don’t but shit...

 6. When not doing things with the band, what can you guys be seen doing?
- We do something all the time with the band. If we are not we do things with other bands to keep sane!haha I swim sometimes and collect records, unfortunately work takes up so much time... You know the usual, drink and go to gigs!

7. What is your opinion on the current state of metal?
-I think it is rather good. I have always been very fond of 70s sound, ten years it was impossible to ever see Pentagram live, now I have seen them four or five times. So creatively it is quite good times, but the music business is off course worse than ever. Djs that don’t even play records, internet-celebrities that earns more than they could ever spend and will probably leave this life without ever planted anything after themselves.

8. How did you guys come up with your band name?
-It came to me in sleep. I dreamed that we played in Germany and I watched the front row-bangers have that name on their t-shirts and I realized it was us. The next day I took my bike to Tobias and showed him the logo and he was sold. –It is also a misspelling of a member of Bathory on the Blood Fire Death-vinyl.

9. What can the fans expect to see from you in the future?
- We play live more frequent now days. Next release will be an Ep titled “Black Pyres”.
