Summon: How did the band get started?

Regicider: In winter 2010 after dissolving a band named “Nergal”, Mantus and I created Black Light Bringer. He then had to leave the band around 2011, and BLB became a one man band until Defiler entered the project in 2013. During that year we worked on the compositions, and recorded the album we just released this month.

 

 

Summon: What kind of music do you play?

Regicider: If you really need to define it, it’s black metal but not like Darkthrone or Dark Funeral, it has some thrash elements but not like Destruction or Sepultura, it’s black thrash but not like Aura Noir or Orcustus, It’s just Black Light Bringer!!
Defiler: It’s a hard question to answer, since it’s not easy to simply define Black Light Bringer as black metal, nor as trash metal, it is a mixture of both but then again, it’s not like other black-trash metal bands…

 

 

Summon: How has the fan response been?

Defiler: Excellent, even better than how I imagined. It seems they’ve liked the show we display and the music we composed. So far there has been a great response from the audience.

 

 

Summon: Where did the band name come from?

Regicider: The name comes from studies of the Azerate, the Gods of Chaos, the misanthropic luciferian order, the philosophy of the black light as an illumination of secret knowledge.

 

 

Summon: Introduce the band members and what they do in the band.

In the album:

Regicider: Lead Vocals, Guitar, drums and bass guitar.

Defiler: Guitar, backing vocals.

We have 2 more members that play with us live, but where not part of the album.

 

 

Summon: Who writes the music? Lyrics?

Regicider: I’m the responsible of all the music and lyrics; both are then revised by Defiler.

 

 

Summon: And where do the lyric ideas come from?

Band: Sex, the black light philosophy, and the hatred towards the religious believers.

 

 

Summon: What is your view in Satanism and Occultism?
Regicider: I don’t like to talk about my philosophy, but I could tell you I consider myself as an Antichristian being instead of satanist.

Defiler: We don’t really talk about Satanism in our album, we each have our own ideas on both topics, but as personal as they are, we don’t really express them.

 

 

Summon: How many albums/CD’s have you released?

Band: We’ve released one album titled “Thorns In Our Flesh”.

 

 

Summon: Tell me about some the songs on the latest CD?

Defiler: As far as harmony goes, we don’t leave behind polyphony. We try to make all the instruments play different harmonic lines so the compositions end up being very rich in a musical sense. Apart from that, they are sharp compositions, straight to the face.

Summon: Do you have any side projects?

Defiler: I play guitar in a band called Traucoholik, it’s a Chilean folk metal band about the myths and creatures form the Chilean culture.

 

 

Summon: Who are some of your musical influences?
Regicider: Peter Tagtgren, Devin Townsend, Keep of Kalessin, Dissection, Behemoth.

Defiler: Devin Townsend, Joe Satriani, Dream Theater and Dimmu Borgir.

 

 

Summon: What is the band like when you play live?

Regicider: A fist to the face.

Defiler: Dark and powerful.

 

 

Summon: Have you guys ever played in another country?

Defiler: No, we haven’t, though we’re looking forward to take that step as soon as possible.

 

 

Summon: How big of crowd shows up at shows usually?

Defiler: We usually play in small places, so the crowd is pretty regular size.

 

 

Summon: How is the crowd response when you play?

Defiler: It’s great. There is definitely an energetic feedback with the crowd.

 

 

Summon: What do you think of the US Black Metal/Death Metal scene?

Regicider: The only black metal band I like from the US is Absu. I’d rather listen to new death metal bands rather than the old school death metal bands. I used to listen to that kind of music when I was a child. Now I really enjoy bands like Origin, Pyrithion, for example.

Defiler: I’m not really familiar with black/death metal bands from the US, I mostly listen to European bands.

 

 

Summon: What do you think of the Overseas scenes?

Regicider: It’s awesome.

Defiler: No matter what point of view you see it from, it’s amazing.

 

 

Summon: What are some of new favorite black metal/death metal bands?

Regicider: It’s been a while since I last heard black metal bands so I would not be influenced by their compositions in Black Light Bringer. I really like some Chilean bands such as Futhan, Novus Ordo, Gorgeo Seglar, Arrayan and Animus Mortis.

 

 

Summon: When do you guys plan on writing any new material?
Regicider: I’m already working in our second album called “the beginning of the end”

Defiler: We are working on that right now, we’ll probably have a new album next year.

 

 

Summon: What does the future hold for the band?

Defiler: We’re not really sure, though we are aiming for the highest.
