Summon: How has the band response been?
Nimrod: Very good, we definitely have a hoof in the door of the underground. And that’s the only thing that matters. The Tyrrellicus USA Distro will release a limited run of Krew demotapes in the near future, only for the US fans. The worldwide black metal support is fantastic.
Summon: Where did the band name come from?
Nimrod: Krew [pronounced “kræf”] means blood in the polish language. I was born in poland and don’t found a german name that was powerful enough to name the band, that’s why I chose a polish one.
Summon: Introduce the band members
Nimrod: There’s me, Nimrod, on the guitar. I founded the band in 2008 as a solo project. On the other guitar is Mort, Taranis on Bass, Wulfing on drums and Nihilaeus does the vocals.
Summon: Who writes the music? Lyrics?
Nimrod: Most of the material including all instruments and the lyrics was written by me. Other stuff was written by Mort.
Summon: And where do the lyric ideas come from?
Summon: What is your view in Satanism and Occultism?
Nimrod: Great hobbies.

Summon: Who are some of your musical influences?
Nimorod: Satyricon, Darkthrone, Emperor. The usual suspects.
