am somewhat pleased by the result of
sharing my music with other people. If it
can help others guide their lives to
better paths, than it is good.
1. Let´ start for the beginning, Did you have a ‘mission’ and
goal ready when you first started out, or did the music and
direction first take shape as you crafted songs and so
I first started composing the music for my current projet by basically
composing songs based on the feel and energy that
encompasses the first few melodies or riffs.
2. Let´s talk about the whole concept. What do you attempt to
capture, express or communicate through your music?
I mainly write about my views of life, which revolve around
Pre-Christian European values, morals and traditions. I do
not attempt to express anything specific musically, so to
speak, but I do try to put an auditory image to the message
I want to convey.
What differentiates your take on this from other bands in
your genre? The main thing that will differentiate my
music to a lot of other bands is the fact that my music is
based on happiness, honor, glory, family and wisdom. I’m
not a self-hating weakling. I do not advocate the use of
Abrahamic cults or any other Hebrew or Asian
How did you create the songs? Is it predetermined process,
or do you leave substantial space for improvisations?
do improvise a lot, but it is somewhat based on the main
riffs. I tend to just write what I can play so I am limited
to a more ‘’primitive’’ approach.
Did you ever consider composing in a newer style of metal,
like melodic black or industrial black? What do you think is
different between those styles and the classic underground
black metal sound?
don’t think of genres at all when I compose, I am
basically more inspired and comfortable with the style that
I play. I don’t limit myself to anything really, musically
speaking, I just compose what’s in my spirit. I could
stray away from metal anytime if I felt the need to do
Despite being active for many years, you have a limited
number of releases. Why’s that?
from a region to another, changing jobs, not having the
right equipment for recording… A lot of things have been
obstructing the process of composing music. But the main
limiting factor is that I do not want to compose that often.
I tend to wander other paths in my life and I find it more
important to do other things like building my forest house
for my family, hunting, forging knives and tools, practicing
permaculture and other projects than to write some
Your self-entitled debut album was released more than a year
ago. Now that time has passed and the thoughts have matured,
are you satisfied by the outcome?
am somewhat pleased by the result of sharing my music with
other people. If it can help others guide their lives to
better paths, than it is good.
You seems to be also pretty attracted by nature and
photography. Could you tell us further details about this
own a piece of Mountainous boreal forest land and I am
building a workshop and my family’s future house. We are
isolated from the direct contact of other humans, surrounded
buy thousands of acres of public forest land. To plan a
project like this means a lot to me as I have been raised in
the woods. It is just like completing the circle and
starting the wheel back again.
How much time do you spend on the band both physically but
also mentally each day? Is it worth all the time and effort
in the end? What do you want with the band?
don’t spend a lot of time with this project. I will
release my second album in 2017 if time allows it. I don’t
have any specific goals other than sharing the wisdom and
glory of our Forebears.
10. Recently I’ve discovered a whole new side to the
Canadian metal scene not known to me before. With the
strange population density that is Canada how do you go
about building a metal scene and attain followers?
am not part of any ‘’scene’’ and do not wish to
attain any followers. Don’t get me wrong though, I am
pleased that people like my music, I am just not a crowd
pleaser and being part of a group of ‘’Trve Kvlt’’
individuals is the complete opposite of what I want in
Where do you see the state of the music industry right now?
Where do you think it will be in 5-10 years?
have not followed the state of the industry in quite a while
and I am not interested in it’s development.
And now we have finally come to the end of this interview,
do you have some important words for our readers?
honorably, be glorious, free yourself of your materialistic
lifestyles, find a partner and start a family, revive your
Forebears’ traditions, whatever origins you may have.
European traditions for Europeans, Asian traditions for
Asians and so forth. Live as freely as you can and
perpetually seek to be a better version of yourself.
