Being a pretty young band formed just one year ago. How
would you characterize the development of your band during
Considering that the band was formed spontaneously and at
ease, I´d say that we developed
quite fast and effectively in this first year.
To those who didn’t know or those who want to know, what
can they expect from you and your music?
We play raw BM that includes everything from aggressive
songs to DSBM-like sounds, a style that in our opinion comes
very close to the original way BM used to be.
We fully dedicate ourselves to the underground. It is not
our goal to earn profit from the music (we sell our album at
the cost-price only) or to build up some pseudo-reality for
ourselves. We play simple and honest BM.
would you describe NAHTODERFAHRUNG as a whole? Is there
anything that makes this band different compared to most new
and upcoming bands?
Of course there is. We have our own style of music and our
intention is not to copy other bands.
“Nahtoderfahrung” has it´s own sound. Our lyrics are
critical, written thoughtfully and have some depht. They
contain our own message, thoughts, emotions and so on.
Let´s talk a bit
about your debut album “Der Seelen Abgrund”. Tell us
something about the main idea of the 8 tracks. Where did you
record? Did you have any problems in the process?
We wanted to create an album that would meet our
notions. Concerning the lyrics and the music, we had no
exact schedule or plan how to arrange it, we just got into
it quite intensely. After we´ve been done with the
songwriting, Luger´s Contacts made it possible to put our
stuff on disc, so we recorded in a semiprofessional studio
in the town of Coburg. There were no real problems, because
for the most part Luger and I agreed in everything, which is
quite amazing, because basically we are two very different
Would you say that there is a specific concept that you
follow or can anything go as long as it is in the realm of
the philosophy of the band?
Although we mentioned before, that there is no specific
think our lyrics will mostly continue dealing with death in
general as a subject. We did not call our project
“Nahtoderfahrung” (Near death experience) for nothing.
That´s just the way it is. Basically you could say that we
play in the way we think is right.
Being a black metal band with just two members, I have to
ask if you plan to establish an solid and complete line up
or keep this just like a “project”? How much time do you
spend on the band both physically but also mentally each
day? What do you want with the band?
As you can read on our facebook site, Excylor joined us in
the summer of 2014, so it is possible for us now to play
live. The band is still lead by me and Luger though. I spend
at least one hour per day on things concerning our band, be
it photos, lyrics or writing songs. “Nahtoderfahrung” is
something in which I´m
putting a lot of time. It´s our version of BM.
What are some of your interests, occupations and hobbies
outside of composing raw music?
Basically music is my biggest hobby. Each day I spend lots
of time listening to old classic bands
or looking for cool new stuff. Another big thing for me is
working out, I go to the gym 4 or 5 times a week.
What would you consider the hardest part about playing in an
Guess that would be to stand out from the crowd. Not to
become famous, but to be different.
It is a fact the the BM underground is overflowing with new
bands. Sticking out is the name of the game.
- Well, that would be all for the moment...thanks very much
