Interview With MORDANT
Posted by Grindcorefan
The band was come to the world just to rape your soul with their Venom/Bathory influensed music. So far they have released three demos and two albums. Summer 2001 they played at the “Slave To Metal Night” in Dals Långed and they get some really good respons at that gig. A paper Mag. from the Phillipines “Bakal Zine” liked the demo soo much that they did an interview with the band. In 2002 Leatherdemon was called in to be a member of MORDANT and they played at The Slave To Metal Night Part II. And there have come some long travelling fans to see them – cool! Also they put in a BATHORY cover in the setlist – it was “The Reaper”. In 2003 Leatherdemon left the band but the band didn´t give upp so in 2004 Mordant released Momento Mori their first Full-length. After a few years of silence they came back with an new Guitarrist called Soulmolester and they were Back From Hell. Unfortnetly their drummer Häll quit the band but nothing could stop them now. They entered the studio with new material with Necrophiliac behind the drums and also played solo guitar. They will also record a tribute song to the legendary Black metal gods Sabbat from Japan. The song will be on the next tribute album released by Iron Pegasus Records.
I salute us- soldiers of darkness from MORDANT! Tell a little about the group. How there was a desire to create group? At you not so it is a lot of records for MORDANT. What takes away time from musical activity?
Bitchfire and Necrophilac started playing metal at an early age and in 1997, when the new riffs lead to entire songs, Mordant was born. Since that after some member exchanges, we now are stronger than ever and we are raised from hell to deliver what our Black Metal-veins carries….. Have you out there, 100% of full force, all the time…
MORDANT play RAW BLACK / THRASH METAL close to your fellow countrymen from BESTIAL MOCKERY / KILL / CHURCH OF BIZZARE. Me so it seemed or they have made on your certain impact. What bands are your favorites? There is a definition of own style at MORDANT. На than your lyrical part is based. Who is the inspirer for your texts?
For example: BATHORY, VENOM, KORROZIA METALLA, SABBATH, DISSECTION, VULCANO, HELLHAMMER, CELTIC FROST, OBSCURITY, TREBLINKA, HOLOCAUSTO, ANGELWITCH and N.W.O.B.H.M! DEATH and EVIL ! If you mean which band who has talented lyric writers, you have for example Jon Nödtveidt, Quorthon, Richard Deamon, Steve Harris.
Sweden has made much for a world metal scene. In your opinion, what period can be noted as the most productive in this plan? Groups of 80 years, groups of 90 years, groups of this era?
If we talk about Black/Death-Metal, our opinion is that the early 90´s where the most productive, this was when there wasn’t so many who have heard this raw tones. Today we have some superb metal bands who lay down there souls in it. But unfortunately there are many assholes; posers and wimps who try to play metal, most of them do it for money or to be cool.
Often you give concerts and that they from themselves represent. Why you use a make-up.?
Its not make-up….
When it is possible to wait your new album and what it will be?
We have new raw materials that we can put in a new album. We just wait for the right moment to release it. Death and Evil…
You’re which first group you have heard in the childhood were … Remember the first metal concert. You collect music? What format the mc, vinyl or a compact disc to you is more to accept for you?
It was MOTORHEAD or IRON MAIDEN for most of us. Metal is best on Vinyl of course!
What do you think of such figure as Quorthon (BATHORY) whether? You admirers of its creativity also play its compositions at yourselves rehearsals. How pass your rehearsals? Whether there are fights between participants MORDANT?
We fight all the time when we are in the rehearsal room.. Or..
What style of music is unacceptable for musicians MORDANT? Have of bands with whom you wage war or they have declared to you boycott?
The readers of this zine know that, if they believe in our music!
YOU must continue your fight! Sounds very good! Thanks for interview. I wish, as well as many other things soon to hear your new album. Tell something in Swedish in end of our conversation for my readers. If possible)))
