Summon: Where do lyric ideas come from?

Tony: The ideas to the songs are taken “mostly” from life itself with all sickness, sadness, sorrow, madness, love, darkness, occult stuff, horror, self destructive thoughts and thinking included in it. Some songs are also influenced by the nature it self and mother earth. The ideas just pops up after hearing a song.

Summon: What is your views on satanism and occultism? 

TomTom: I don’t follow any organized religion at all. We both think that way.

 

 

Summon: How many albums have you released?

TomTom: 3 so far.

 

 

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

Tony: For example the track “A Place Where Only Pain Dwells” is about the ongoing destruction that mankind does with the planet we live on and all agony and sorrow that follows in footsteps of that and about all hate. The track “The Awakening” is about deep thoughts of life itself and a possible afterlife and that it is no need to be religious to believe that something comes after or so and it is about the endless hate and sadness that many of us feel about mankind and the whole world. Since the very first start have we more or less just spread hate, violence and sickness and it seems to never end. And if I say for myself I often think that the world would be a better place if we destroyed ourselves 🙂 All songs are very dark and deep in it’s topics and can be also very philosophically sometime.

TomTom: OfSilence&Sorrows, Blind Man Sees.

Tony: Wintercold, Dawn of Apocalypse, Demorian, Luciferian Blood & some more, also involved as a vocalist for the Chilean dsbm band Nostalgie Depression.
