Summon: Tell me briefly on the history of the band…
Peter: (The general biography)
Summon: Describe in your own words the type of music you guys play?
Peter: It’s still and always was Black-Metal without any additional description.
Summon: Where did you get the band name from?
Peter: It’s the name of a demon, the demon of war, we found it in several books and we thought it’s the most suitable for a Black-Metal band as we’d like to form back in 1993.
Summon: Why doesn’t the band play live?
Peter: Mainly because of the line-up problem and the lack of our spare time.
Summon: Would you ever play live?
Peter: Maybe, if the offers okay and time allows.
Summon: Who exactly plays what instrument in the band?
Peter: Thurisaz plays bass and does the vocals, I play guitars and synths, but we’ve no drummer at the moment.
Summon: Who writes the music and lyrics?
Peter: Currently I write all the music and the lyrics.
Summon: Where do you guys get your lyric ideas from?
Peter: Hard to say, it’s just a natural process. I’ve some ideas and finally it starts to flow, I guess the main inspiration is my very interested in the black-arts and magic.
Summon: What is your view in Satanism and Occultism?
Peter: Personally, I see no real difference between Occultism and Satanism as you might call it. It’s all linked together and one can’t exist without the other, it’s a cycle where all components must be compatible to get the success you want during the rites or whatever. I am addicted to that kind of ‘religion’ or dogma because it’s my personal believe and I grant my force and inner strength through it. It’s a chosen path that leads you into darkness, which finally set your soul a blaze with the everlasting wisdom, notbound by any told laws and guidelines.
Summon: Do you practice any satanic rituals?
Peter: Yes, partly.
Summon: Have you ever or would you ever do any church burnings or graveyard desecrations?
Peter: In our early days in 93 we desecrated several churches, but it was nothing special.
Summon: How many Abigor or albums have you released?
Peter: 5 albums (Verwüstung, Nachthymnen, Opus IV, Supreme…, Channeling…) 2 MCD’s (Orkblut, Apokalypse) 1 7″ (Structures Of Immortality) limited and the demo CD (origo regium 1993-1994) limited
Summon: Tell me about some the songs on the latest CD? (which I absolutely love)
Peter: There’s nothing special left to say. It’s our most intense and extremist material yet. Channeling The Quintessence Of Satan offers 8 songs with a very powerful production yet still typical ABIGOR, very technical and sometimes strange, just as always.
Summon: Tell me about your new project Hellbound? What type of band is it?
Peter: HELLBOUND is more Metal based, thus means aggressive mid-tempo based double-bass beats and a lot of muted guitars, with a harsh electronical touch.
Summon: What is your goal with Heidenreich? What are you trying to create with it that doesn’t fit with Abigor?
Peter: HEIDENREICH is laid on ice, I won’t say more at the moment.
Summon: Do you have any other side projects?
Peter: No, at the moment I concentrate 100% on ABIGOR, the rest is of less importance.
Summon: Who are some of your musical influences?
Peter: I don’t know, mainly I listen to Black-Metal and Metal of the 80’s. I guess my main influence are albums of SLAYER, POSSESSED, ATHEIST, early MARDUK and the first ENSLAVED for example.
Summon: What are some of new favorite black metal bands?
Peter: Early MARDUK, ENSLAVED, some stuff of GORGOROTH, the new FORLORN album, the first DARKTHORNE recordings, ULVER, VED BUENS ENDE, THORNS, the first SATYRICON, and all that other stuff everyone knows, nothing special.
Summon: Have you ever heard any band(s) that seemed like they were ripping Abigor off? Or influenced by you guys? And do you like those bands?
Peter: Some, especially in the last time one hears everywhere ABIGOR riffs stolen, but I really don’t care about it.
Summon: What does the future hold for Abigor??
Peter: I don’t know. Hopefully a new drummer and the best record that has ever been released by us yet.
