www.transcending-the-mundane.com/archive (Wrath’s Interview on Issue 46, May 2024)

1.  How are you today?  What is something positive that’s happened for you recently?

I am doing great. More focused and determined to what I have to do, in order to fulfill my vision! Each day I am heading one step closer to it! I have to work harder and harder, but there is a saying, that goes like, “no pain, no gain”. My endless thirst for creation; creation without limits; without caring if others approve it or not, after more than 20 years of existence, is the most positive for me.

2.  How do you feel about Wrath?  Are you happy with how it came out?  

I am very satisfied, because I managed to externalize all my rage, my hatred, my disgust against all these parasites that disappointingly rule this world. This album is another statement of my utter disapproval against this modern society and their filthy lust to destroy this planet’s divine nature, our peaceful animals, all proud people who suffer due to poverty…I am happy that I created an album, showing the incapability and parasitical behavior of the ones that consider themselves as the elite! My music’s purpose is not to entertain the brainless masses, but to make you think and redefine your existence.

3.  You’ve always been one of my favorite black metal bands and you have some of the best song titles of all time- when people think about Dødsferd and your reputation and what you have built- what do you want them to think?  

My music, my bands, my writings, my art is my legacy. I am also learning all these years! Knowledge is something that never stops! I use everything I know through my art, in order to make people think. No theories and no lame excuses. Nothing is easy. You must be in constant alert. People can think whatever they want. I just don’t want to be a mere bystander in this world.

4.  Where do you feel Wrath fits in with your legacy?  Do you feel this rank amongst your best work?

Every album of mine are like a diary of my life. As I am getting older, I am gathering more and more experiences which depicts on them. “Wrath” is my most mature album. I worked very hard and I cooperated with the most appropriate people; people that could understand the whole idea and the message I wanted to spread and I did it loud and clear.

5.  How has your experience been with the various record labels you’ve released Dødsferd with? 

I created FYC Records ‘cause I couldn’t stand some annoying and disrespectful things, each of the labels you mentioned have done, others more provocatively and others less. Nicolas and Hypnotic Dirge Records, is the exception. It’s the first time after 5 years that I am working with another label, along with mine. Nicolas is s decent man, sharing the same philosophy with me. He supports me and he pays attention very seriously to my needs as an artist. Really honored working with such devoted man!!!

6.  What can you tell us about your label, Fucking Your Creation?  I see you have a Nadiwrath compilation out this month?  Any new releases planned for this year? 

It’s more than a label! It’s a community of devoted artists who create uncompromising art against the preferences of the masses; a big family, that works together in order to change a lot of things, starting from the polluted culture of the underground scene! Nadiwrath are back and this compilation album,”Death Eternal”, with unreleased songs, was the greatest way for this return! Shattered Hope’s brand new EP, “Memoir”, InScissorS new album, Manos Six and the Muddy Devil new EP, the split album of Drunk Mfs with the Drunk Earth are some of the expected releases for 2024. And of course a lot of re-issues in tape format and unique merchandise!

7.  Do you have any new music planned with Grab, Drunk Motherfuckers, or Nadiwrath?

Yes, we have! But we will start the recordings for each band/project in 2025. This year is dedicated to Gin Lane, my other project. I have the preproduction of the new album completed since last year but due to various obligations I had, especially with my book I couldn’t start the recordings. But finally this year I am hoping to complete the recordings in order to release it.   

8.  What types of emotions went through the creation of Wrath?  Do you feel a sense of catharsis during the songwriting, recording, or listening phase of your music?

Total wrath and hatred upon the greedy parasites out there who have managed to turn this beautiful world into an endless graveyard!!! A wasteland, with brainless slaves, working just to feed the bellies of these pathetic leeches!!!! There is no justice; society has become a disease that infects everyone who becomes a member of it. The procedure of recordings, especially the recording of vocals, was totally soul destroying! All these violent emotions were externalized through my voice! Catharsis still hasn’t come, because the demons in my head never let me loose; it’s like a gift and a curse together!    

9.  What motivates you to keep writing extreme metal? 

Human scums and their filthy existence!  

10.  What are some other passions or interests that you have?

Reading books and of course writing; spending a lot of time with my animals, hiking in the gorges and mountains of Crete with my dogs, gardening; working as a volunteer on animal shelters…Everything that isolates me from their society!!!

11.  What are your personal and musical plans for this year?

Releasing some good albums through my label, working on my bands and projects, completing my second book of poems; I have also some live performances till the end of the year. 

12.  Final comments?  Please add anything we missed. Thank you so much for your time!  

Thank you very much for your time and support!!!

Just a reminder to all those who think that they can affect in a negative way my band, my label, or me as a person; I don’t expect to live through my music, or my label. I don’t expect to be a rock star. My vision is higher than where your mind can reach.

Into the Wells Blog Review by Eric N. Wells:

https://www.facebook.com/Intothewells.abyss

Yes, we have been MIA for the past few months, but we are back. Here is our first album review for the year 2024. Please, read, like and share! And, make sure to support your favorite artists! — E.N. Wells

𝒟ø𝒹𝓈𝒻𝑒𝓇𝒹 — 𝒲𝓇𝒶𝓉𝒽

𝙰𝚕𝚋𝚞𝚖 𝚁𝚎𝚟𝚒𝚎𝚠 𝚋𝚢 𝙴.𝙽. 𝚆𝚎𝚕𝚕𝚜, 𝙰𝚙𝚛𝚒𝚕 𝟷𝟽, 𝟸𝟶𝟸𝟺.

I have been on hiatus for a little over three months now! I have not felt the urge or desire to write about anything this past few months, but when 𝗪𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗵 sent me the latest offering from his band 𝗗ø𝗱𝘀𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗱, I gave it a listen and I immediately felt compelled to write a review about said release!

After the release of 𝗗ø𝗱𝘀𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗱’s masterpiece, “𝗦𝘂𝗶𝗰𝗶𝗱𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗥𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗞𝗶𝗻𝗱 𝗪𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗙𝗼𝗹𝗹𝗼𝘄 𝗜𝗜” (2021), Wrath collaborated with 𝗺.𝗦𝗮𝗿𝘃𝗼𝗸 to create the mostly acoustic and atmospheric EP “𝗔𝘀𝗽𝗵𝘆𝘅𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗟𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗡𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁 𝗦𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀” (2023). This release featured the more anguished and depressive style of vocals from frontman 𝗪𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗵, along with many spoken word passages. And, at that time I wondered, “is this the new direction we can expect from the band on future releases?”

Well, upon the album details and art reveal back in January of this year, 𝗗ø𝗱𝘀𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗱 founder and frontman 𝗪𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗵 promised that the new album would be a no holds barred, uncompromising onslaught of raw black metal, filled with fury and passion… ….and I can proudly say that 𝗗ø𝗱𝘀𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗱’s aptly titled twelfth full-length studio album, “𝗪𝗥𝗔𝗧𝗛” is exactly what was promised.

Gone are the anguished cries from the bands previous few releases, as they are replaced by the rage fueled screams as heard on the band’s earlier releases like “𝗙𝘂𝗰𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗖𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻” (2007)! Many would wonder how a man like 𝗪𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗵 can continue to be so creative, especially since he is active in so many projects outside of 𝗗ø𝗱𝘀𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗱. But, one just has to listen to the music or read the lyrics of the songs to understand what feeds his artistic direction and creativity. It’s his unending rage and hatred for the greed, corruption, and warfare which causes so much death, destruction and suffering! And, this unending rage results in searing, raw, black metal excellence! As it seems that these atrocities won’t end, I think we will continue to witness the magnificence of 𝗪𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗵 and 𝗗ø𝗱𝘀𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗱 for quite some time!

𝗪𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗵 (𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗺𝗮𝗻) truly has pushed boundaries whilst on his artistic journey, but he has always kept true to the core element of black metal with 𝗗ø𝗱𝘀𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗱. The result is a formidable monolithic catalog of work, spanning over the bands twenty-plus-year run with all the aptitude and murkiness that comes from being an essential part of the underground. And, “𝗪𝗥𝗔𝗧𝗛” (the album) feels to me as if it were an effortless endeavor for an act that epitomizes the true definition of black metal! I know I have said this before, but I mean it when I say that this album has easily taken its place as my favorite 𝗗ø𝗱𝘀𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗱 release thus far!

𝗥𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴: 5 Rage Fueled Screams out of 5.

” The next song I’ve chosen is, in a word, really fucking intense. Okay, technically three words. The video that accompanies it is also intense, mainly because most of the footage shows harrowing real-world events in Greece, as well as the real-world performance of Dødsferd in Athens last May.

The riveting intensity of “Restoration of Justice” derives from multiple forces at work together — the fiery, dervish-like whirl of the riffing, the piston-like hammering and rampant blasting of the drums, the scalding ferocity of the vocals. But the electrifying whirl of the melody seamlessly shifts as the song moves, bringing in feelings of dismay and desperation, of sorrow and pain.

In both of these integrated phases, the music is thoroughly immersive, carrying the listener away into both defiant and dark moods, and more changes are to come, with further changes in the emotional timbre of the riffing and the pacing and patterns of the beats.

What doesn’t change is the wholly-consuming nature of the experience, and the unchained blood-spraying fury of the vocals. The riffing is dense yet clear, piercing like gales of fire and swarms of knives, and all of the elaborate melodic motifs have a way of getting stuck in the head as they trade places. And hell yes, the song is epic, as well as harrowing, haunting, and intensely memorable.

Restoration of Justice” is from Dødsferd‘s upcoming 12th album, Wrath, set for co-release on May 10th by Hypnotic Dirge Records and FYC Records. As the band explain, it stands as “a vigorous indictment of the social and economic consequences of capitalism, political corruption, ecocide, and the largest argument against our civility – warfare.”
