Summon: How did the band get started?

Kane: The band got started in 2010 because of personal reasons. It was a one man project for a while, just for my compulsion to create. A Demo was recorded pretty fast and work was continued. Later a bass player and a drummer joined.

 

 

Summon: What kind of music do you play?

Kane: I don’t want to tell you a genre, because I try to not set any borders to the project, but you maybe can describe it as depressive Black Metal with all kinds of influences. Doom, Rock, Experimental, Whatever.

 

 

Summon: How has the fan response been?

Kane: There are all kinds of responses, positive ones and very hateful ones.

 

 

Summon: Where did the band name come from?

Kane: The name Morn Guruth means ‘Black Plague’. I think you can interpret that as you want. I choose to translate it to Sindarin because the bands that I listened to when I came to Black Metal did the same thing and wanted to keep a connection to the roots of my musical way even if I’d move far away from that.

 

 

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

Kane: Well, there’s Yannik Kulla as bass player and guitarist, Yannik Mücke as drummer and me for the whole process of creation and everything that’s left.

 

 

Summon: Who writes the music? Lyrics?

Kane: I write almost everything. Sometimes with some riffs of Yannik Kulla included.

 

 

Summon: And where do the lyric ideas come from?

Kane: The lyrics aren’t more than the manifestation of the thoughts of a desperate mind without a deeper meaning or anything. Only the verbalization of boundless negation.

 

 

Summon: What is your view in Satanism and Occultism?

Kane: I don’t give a shit for those childish things.

 

 

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

Kane: We released the ‘Fate of the Fallen Souls’ demo in 2010, a free download compilation in 2012 and the Weltekel LP in 2013.

 

 

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

Kane: What can I tell you? Listen to it and feel what is behind them, you might understand what it means or not. There’s nothing to say.

Summon: Do you have any side projects?

Kane: Yes, I’m involved in several things.

 

 

Summon: Who are some of your musical influences?

Kane: There are a lot of influences from all kinds of genres. In fact you always say you want to avoid other influences and do your own stuff, but that’s naive. My work on Morn Guruth is mostly influenced by the classics of Depressive Suicidal Black Metal, although I listen to a lot of other genres.

 

 

Summon: Which current bands?

Kane: I don’t want to do any advertising here.

 

 

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

Kane: Until now there were no live appearances, we’ll start this in the future.

 

 

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

Kane: There’s no big interest in any scene.

 

 

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

Kane: Don’t know a lot of useful new bands and none worth being mentioned here.

 

 

Summon: When do you guys plan on writing any new material?

Kane: There’s constantly new material written. Let’s see what will happen with this.

 

 

Summon: What does the future hold for the band??

Kane: I have no idea, death and disease probably. Well, we’ll start playing shows and try to reach new levels in any way.
