With the outgoing of previous throatman Corchado a new vocal makes itself at home, not far from the tortured howls of Anders Friden. The same sense of aggression is also present in this work, but is less of a catharsis than the aforementioned Swedish band or the German act Atrocity, and has a motive towards evoking a nostalgic depth, rather than a psychological-emotional one. Acoustic guitars embellish and interlock with these intricate arrangements, and are an obvious nod to Mediterranean and Southern European music.
This stylistic admixture works brilliantly, rather than being a work that is merely imitative of an established style, it works the more obvious traits for its own ends, borrowing rather than copying. Cenotaph make a very distinct and profound work here, one of the finest releases to come out of Latin America.
Unlike more recent acts such as Portal that also delve into the Non-Euclidean realm of Howard Phillip, this work remains an highly geometric one, as if to frame the malevolent world of the Ancient Ones within the scope of human cognition, enabling the sensations of fear and awe and involuntary submission to the higher, evil will. The symmetrical structure of these songs oversee a central melodic theme being deconstructed with the horror of trembling and ominously churning, Deicidean riff-work that builds to a majestic revelation of cosmic power, usually embellished by eerie synths.
From this expanse, the band reintroduces the central riff, re-contextualising it through powerful lead overlays and purposeful percussive and rhythmic enunciation, with the crescendo-inducing prowess of a Classical symphony. These blasphemers from Guadalajara were around as early as according to their biography. Only denizens of the infernal layers know what they must have sounded like back then, but their full length revelation is also nothing less than ancient and horrific, of deeply atmospheric and disturbed vision of extended, simple and dragging death metal torment.
Shunning the eloquent melodies of Cenotaph and likewise the rhythmic energy of Mortuary, Sargatanas withdraws into ascetic and morbidly elongated tremolos pillared by blasphemous growls mostly maintaining the emotionless, yet commanding tone of satanic artifice, as a stone statue summoned to unholy life and crushing Christians with no haste or passionate compulsion — determinate, almost peaceful.
We have been listening to Metal music for a long, long time. I think all of this music has influenced us a lot. Books that have inspired us throughout all of this has been ancient literature from the pre-Hispanic cultures of our homeland — with special focus on the Mayan topics mainly, though we also like H. In those days, there were not many bands like us around. I remember that on the few gigs we had, some people were just staring at us, and some other were just enjoying the sound. It was really small and we just seem to get more attention from other countries than ours. Sometimes, regular people were inventing silly stories about bad things happening to them simply because we were about to play on that day.
Avzhia was formed with influence from Death, Thrash etc. Metal, absorbing and swallowing the blackest of these styles of Metal to form a dark and melancholic sound. Avzhia was the only Black Metal band playing in the midst of a lot of Death Metal bands, we remember brutal mosh pits and hostility… so when Avzhia took the stage the audience seemed to be taken by a great fucking depression! This was released in and was a time where many metal acts were on the verge of signing artistic death warrants by trying too hard to be different.
Maybe it could have had a better production, but in the end that is the sound that captures the environment we are related to. We hope to release our new album soon. Easily one of the most obscure and horrifying symphonies ever composed on the Mexican soil, the drug-addled, hypnotic and twisted black ambient scenarios of Funereal Moon despite the Guttural Records connection bear little resemblance to the warm crusted ground of Xibalba or the quasi-Nordic beauty of Avzhia — or any other formal black metal for that matter.
If you have heard some of the unsane abstractions concocted by the French black legionnaires or Texan congregation of Equimanthorn on their mostly private tape mayhem, you might have an inkling of what to expect.
When stripping away the keyboards from the guitars to reveal the simple beauty of an idea, almost Punk-like riffs of the sort Impaled Nazarene are infamous for are unleashed in a warlike clash of thought and action. The Chasm , a masterful brainchild of Cenotaph alumnus Daniel Corchado, advanced from Mexican beginnings to dominate the forthcoming decade now in Chicago with a progressive structural, non-gimmick Death Metal tour de force. Hardly any Toltec spirit here, so move along. Hooded Wallachians prowl the crenellated wall tops of ancient castles, Mediterranean bards wield their lutes as metallic Paco de Lucias and some thin, wimpy goth called Philix Pherboreon is this a Harry Potter character?
The expansive melting pot of sounds and styles is guided by Shamanic visions that peer into the inpenetrable abode of Mictlantehcuhtli, coloured and contrasted by the opposing principles that intersect this psychic plane, giving this album a vast sense of direction proportional to the longing for ancient wisdom in a world torn from the continuum of tradition. The Chasm avoid the pitfalls of Melodic Death Metal by having this focus, removing themselves from the tendency of bands to resemble a Scandinavian folk riff-salad with no conceptual reasoning behind it.
Through the international contact and amalgamation of principles brought about by simultaneously World Wide Web access and the extent of educating the young generation in English language movies, videogames and music being elemental and important here the new millennium saw Mexico closer than ever to its northern neighbour. You should work because you love what you are doing, and doing this just to be a sell out and gain a living from the people who manage you is a completely Shitty attitude. Underground Death Metal is for true warriors who eat, shit and talk metal, and love it as a son!
Metal in Europe is bigger than other music styles without the need of being in a popularity contest. On the other hand, in Mexico, Metal has been taken as a trend. Every single metal subgenre such as death, thrash, black or speed has been invaded by stupid bastards with childish ideas and only commercial purposes. This is not only certain individuals, as even labels have mutated into money makers — signing bands created to give a commercial and false name to metal. They think that they know everything and even take the image of the old gods as costumes.
Please, when those bands were out, nobody cared about them! But now everybody is looking for those bands, jajajaja! The other ones will escape to the next trend, because they never really belonged to us! Avzhia is always going to exist in the dark side of true Black Metal and we will keep doing our work full of darkness of our Lord Sathanas. Grim, cold, melancholic and depressive are characteristics of what Avzhia is! Only the true emperors live, eternal life to Black Metal! We just like the sound of a good song, no matter what style it is.
As long as it reflects honesty and passion, clearly away from the rules of the mainstream. You just need to find the right notes and stay focused on the path. This music has been really distorted from the original roots. I think it depends on the integrity and personal convictions everybody has. We are satisfied with the music that we did. Songwriting for us has been a natural change in the evolution of the band, as new songs have the seal of Mortuary but are definitely not the same.
As regrettably is the case with neo-death metal, there is a great temptation to succumb into a patterned safe manifestation of used riffs, which no longer have the capacity to shock or inspire but the most fresh and innocent listeners. Yaotl Mictlan in a similar respect to Xibalba borrow stylistically from European black metal.
True to backdrop, the band bring elements unique to their Mexican heritage to the fore, in the form of wind instruments, percussives and acoustic guitar passages that are distinct within flamenco music. Now signed with Candlelight records, it will be interesting to see what results their next release will artistically yield, as there are moments of promise here. Often referred to as a clone of The Chasm, Infinitum Obscure do indeed share more than a few identifiable traits with their fellow Mexicans, most notably the tremolo picking and those galloping triplets that lend so much power and vigour to the rhythm.
There is something that ultimately separates the two bands, however; that being the conceptual direction each band embarks upon: So, while their main inspiration might take flight into stranger landscapes, Infinitum Obscure are quite content to portray the lost chasms of this world with an evocative atmosphere of imaginative melodies and, most importantly, direct and uncompromising riffing. The need to shake off the burden of being a mere clone band is eminently present; the band tasks itself with creating something altogether their own, resulting in a real sense of the epic emerging from the patterns interwoven throughout the record; each song is striking at something profound, grasping wildly in the search for solidarity.
The consequence of these compulsions is an album that sounds like it is still very much in The Chasm camp; while really it has taken several progressive leaps forward, leaving us with a work of art brimming with the self-confidence of autonomy. Some of the most impressive new death metal from anywhere in the world, this churning, impactful and bodily animalistic accomplishment from former Cenotaph and Shub Niggurath madmen is not a joke. Most importantly, the unrelenting hopelessness of these afterworld visions will force the listener to abandon the illusion of safety and immortality that makes the common man succumb to faulty, immoral decisions from day to day, thus achieving one of the highest principles of death metal: I think this music is very individual and very personal, and it can take you to a spiritual level, if you listen carefully.
One song can take you to the top of the pyramids, and reach for the skies, and another one could take you to a scenario of a war against the conquerors. In the end the people in power need a dormant society, so they can keep on corrupting, spreading corruption in every corner, and people are just playing the game. Only the connection to your roots will set you free. Highest hails from Deathmetal. All of these bands are active so look out for forthcoming events of true massacre of the highest order. Once you decided to come to Mexico you should have put all your petty fears away.
Your decision to come should have vanquished them. You came because you wanted to come. Black metal drew to its camp many who experimented in extreme metal and punk but found themselves alienated by the ideas of the mainstream. Like fellow hybridizers Absurd, the intelligent Spear of Longinus found they wanted to borrow bits from many genres of extreme social rejection, and hoped to unify them around an ideology which explained both solid reasons for disliking society and suggested something positive in its stead.
COM representative in Australia was able to catch up with these gents and exchange a few words. In a time when it is popular to be ultra-black-metal in the modern sense, your music seems to have older inspirations. What bands and eras inspire your creation? For example Discharge, The Exploited, etc etc. Etc so in light of that , musik in this stlye must be alive with energy to get my enthusiasm. Modern proponents that have done this would be stuff like, Darkthrone, Burzum and earlier Emperor releases.
You see most modern metal feels lifeless to me, it has no particular focus apart from just being metal, whatever the hell that just exactly is …. Of course stuff like Wagner and trancendental compositions greatly inspire us now. For example Tibetan vocals, Indian sitar etc. Inspiring music would be that with a passion, a driving urge… honesty and integrity, that has something to say — either of a temporal or numinous nature, and has the ability to… affect and effect.
THAT is inspiring, something of the like worth emulating. What inspires the creation of individual songs: Or, is the impression we receive of the chair , the chair real? The path of fools. It seems you have attempted to blend the spiritual and the political into a single entity; to many of us, these seem inseparable in the first place.
How did you come to the realization that this was the path for you? Yes these things are inseperable, just as matter is spirit. Energy, in a different format. BUT, they are of course something totally different to each other at the same time. Inseparable is the word. Vague allusions to begin with, experiencing it first-hand is… makes it so much more of a certainty… a most profound experience. In this respect, it is not enough to say that we are dealing with a purely material and economic conquest.
That view seems very superficial, for two reasons. In the first place, a land that is conquered on the material level also experiences, in the long run, influences of a higher kind corresponding to the cultural type of its conqueror. Secondly, the traditional conception of culture and the state is hierarchical, not dualistic. This is a basic idea of the authentically traditional view of life, which does not permit us to speak with contempt of merely material conquests.
But this has not happened. The West must then have been the culture in which a crisis that was already universal assumed its acutest form. Buddhism, in the summarization of Herr Nietzsche, is a self-denying religion, where it seems that most of the western tradition is self-affirming, although not perhaps in the ultra-limited-focus of self-based religions Judaism, Christianity. In your view, how do Buddhism and National Socialism spring from the same origin?
Like we said before, this is where the humans cease to function appropriately. Gnosis, is probably the mediator needed here to make sense of these issues. The superman is the overman, the man that has overcome his limitations and regrown to a super from our present involuted state level of being.
I would at this point encourage humans to find a nice rock under a tree on a mountain by a stream amd meditate your brains out on these issues. And further than that, NS being a modern re-formulation, in such a dire time and circumstances, was and is bound to be different. The foundation of every true State is the transcendence of its own principle, namely the principle of sovereignty, authority, and legitimacy.
This essential truth has been variously expressed in the course of history; if this truth was not recognized, the meaning of everything that belongs to political reality would be misunderstood, or at least distorted. In previous eras it was possible to speak of the sacred character of the principle of sovereignty and power, namely of the State. For instance, the ancient Roman notion of imperium essentially belonged to the domain of the sacred. This notion, in its specific meaning, even before expressing a system of territorial, supernatural hegemony, designated the pure power of command, the almost mystical power and auctoritas inherent in the one who had the function and quality of Leader: In the Roman world, which was intensely realistic or, I should say, precisely because it was intensely realistic , the notion of this power, which is simultaneously auctoritas, always retained its intrinsic character of bright force from above and of sacred power, beyond the various and often spurious techniques that conditioned its access in different periods.
Do you see the individual as existing outside of a political and social context, or necessarily as part of one, even when attempting to avoid the issue? They are therefore necessary tools to be utilised. There is in each person a unique and most vital element to their being, this is the essential spark that travels from incarnation to incarnation, the immortal animator of our being. So, yes, people CAN be individuals if they choose to put the effort in, otherwise yes, we can be defined by a social and political context.
It does appear to be a good idea in theory. Perhaps it works only on the small scale in practice; medieval Iceland for example. At bottom, it has been an aesthetic taste that has hindered mankind most: This looks as if an antithesis has been achieved, a leap made; in reality, the schooling through moral hyperbole prepared the way step by step for that milder of pathos that became incarnate in the scientific character —. The conscientiousness in small things, the self-control of the religious man were a preparatory school for the scientific character: These are the ones which I have the most vivid recollections of.
They were superior to our present era as humans involute instead of evolute, as opposed to what the corrupt ones would have us believe. This level of being had a totally different outlook to the present. In those times the human was the teknology to be perfected, not , an outside material construct for humans to dump their shortcomings on to create even more limitations to the acheivement of human potentials.
You see energy is matter and matter is spirit. Therefore energy is spirit. This is why the great civilisations of old look so backwards to the uninitiated, the advance is hidden to them. None more-so than others. Machiavelli says it is better to be loved than hated, but much harder to be loved by the fickle nature of populations. Hate will destroy you. This is not to be confused with a healthy adversity, which promotes growth and strength. The trick is to achieve FOR the people, especially if they do not at the time recognise what is best for them.
The everlasting qualities of Varna and family traditions of those who destroy their family are ruined by the sinful act of illegitimacy. The fascia, from which fascism derives its name, is a bundle of reeds with an axe head attached at their center; the symbolism is in theory that while sticks break individually, together they are strong.

Is there any unity toward a common goal in modern governments? We could go into all kinds of discussions regarding parties , wings and all manner of political doctrine, and really I think most of them do at least have something positive to offer. One country wants to bully the world… If you look at these matters, you will come to the conclusion that the attitude of the USA is a threat to world peace.
Have you had any problems with labels, fans, clubs or others because of your political views? Herr Nietzsche referred to Christianity as a great evil that, were it not to exist, would have to be invented. The rather drastic change in the opinion of Origen mirrors the devolution of mass christianity as a whole, culminating with the final purge of the esoteric aspect of the religion in the 15th cent. So what aspect of christianity is to be overcome? The outer, exoteric branch everyone is familiar with?
Of what do you believe this is a portent, and how do you think it will be circumnavigation? I knew this was on the drawing board, but had no idea it was to be implemented at this point.

Surely people can see that this is unbalanced? By that I mean whatever factions are still opposing these actions. Nothing should be repressed, this is the tao, more light. Those who want to be separate should be separate, those who want to mix should mix. I think there should be separate events where the competitors can shoot up absolutely any shit into their organisms they want. Hell they can even get nuclear powered bioniks in these events for all I care, go for it. We will see where that leads.

Are there any similarities in your view between the Qabbalah pre-Judaic and the tree of life in Nordic religions? They are differing cultural descriptions of the same phenomena; physical worlds coming into being and the polarity to such. Buddhism and National Socialism both emphasize discipline and a rational, non-superstitious, non-dogmatic approach to decoding philosophy, nature and the sciences.
Is this congruent with the beliefs of the west at this time, or has a contravening force taken over? What do you expect when we live so far from galatik centre? When it is within ones ability to upgrade to a double sun, you will still know the answer to yesterday, though not today. What form of NS are you referring to??? The very world we live in today is the consequence of years of rationalism, denigration of superstition, and NS stood in direct opposition to this degenerate society; NS was a civilization unto itself.

THAT seems quite rational…. When you write lyrics, which is more important: IS the exact meaning. Words can never give the truth, only a close approximation. Somewhere within the yin and yang polarities of that atomik field we will find the exact mathematical fraction hinted at. Do you read any philosophers or social theorists and if so, what doctrines do you find relevant to the current time and its discontent? I rarely read at all these days. Now we work more practically with the meditations and such. The intellect rarely serves its master satisfactorally.
Simple observation and reflections will give you any informations that these types of pushers try to get thou addicted to. In addition to that, the big draw back is that people just go around adding all this information to their little brains, without actually utilising any of it or DOING anything. A bit of a waste of time really. Which is first applied on an intellectual level then passed on to the dan tien, then hopefully we can really do some work psychologikly.
Which itself begins at the ritual level, then moves deeper. In your view, is history a linear process with a clear end-point at which a triumph of development can be proclaimed? History is cyclik in both its ups and downs, every point is only a decimal on the way to another point. The basic Luciferian principles highlight truth and freedom of will, worshipping the inner self and one's ultimate potential. Traditional dogma is shunned as a basis for morality on the grounds that humans should not need deities or fear of eternal punishment to distinguish right from wrong and to do good.
All ideas should be tested before being accepted, and even then one should remain skeptical because knowledge and understanding are fluid.

Regardless of whether Lucifer is conceived of as a deity or as a mere archetype, he is a representation of ultimate knowledge and exploration, as well as humanity's savior and a champion for continuing personal growth. Some Luciferians believe in Lucifer as an actual deity, not to be worshipped as the Judeo-Christian God but to be revered and followed as a teacher and friend, as a rescuer or guiding spirit, or even the one true god as opposed to the traditional creator deity in Judaism. Lucifer the Lightbearer was an individualist anarchist journal published in the United States by Moses Harman in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
It has been reported that "[t]he title was selected, stated Harman, because it expressed the paper's mission. Lucifer, the name given to the morning star by the people of the ancient world, served as the symbol of the publication and represented the ushering in of a new day. He declared that freethinkers had sought to redeem and glorify the name Lucifer while theologians cursed him as the prince of the fallen angels.
Harman suggested that Lucifer would take on the role of an educator. Lucifer was a publication edited by the influential occultist Helena Blavatsky. The journal was first published by Blavatsky. From until Blavatsky's death in May , Annie Besant was a co-editor. Rudolf Steiner 's writings, which formed the basis for anthroposophy , characterised Lucifer as a spiritual opposite to Ahriman , with Christ between the two forces, mediating a balanced path for humanity.
Lucifer represents an intellectual, imaginative, delusional, otherworldly force which might be associated with visions, subjectivity, psychosis and fantasy. He associated Lucifer with the religious and philosophical cultures of Egypt, Rome, and Greece. Steiner believed that Lucifer, as a supersensible Being, had incarnated in China about years before the birth of Christ. In what is known as the Taxil hoax , he alleged that leading Freemason Albert Pike had addressed "[t]he 23 Supreme Confederated Councils of the world" an invention of Taxil , instructing them that Lucifer was God, and was in opposition to the evil god Adonai.
Supporters of Freemasonry contend that, when Albert Pike and other Masonic scholars spoke about the "Luciferian path" or the "energies of Lucifer", they were referring to the Morning Star, the light bearer,  the search for light; the very antithesis of dark, Satanic evil. Taxil promoted a book by Diana Vaughan actually written by himself, as he later confessed publicly  that purported to reveal a highly secret ruling body called the Palladium , which controlled the organization and had a Satanic agenda.
As described by Freemasonry Disclosed in With frightening cynicism, the miserable person we shall not name here [Taxil] declared before an assembly especially convened for him that for twelve years he had prepared and carried out to the end the most sacrilegious of hoaxes. We have always been careful to publish special articles concerning Palladism and Diana Vaughan. We are now giving in this issue a complete list of these articles, which can now be considered as not having existed. Taxil's work and Pike's address continue to be quoted by anti-Masonic groups. In Devil-Worship in France , Arthur Edward Waite compared Taxil's work to what today we would call a tabloid story, replete with logical and factual inconsistencies.
Madeline Montalban was an English astrologer and witch. She co-founded the esoteric organisation known as the Order of the Morning Star OMS , through which she propagated her own form of Luciferianism. In , she met Nicholas Heron, with whom she entered into a relationship.
An engraver , photographer, and former journalist for the Brighton Argus , he shared her interest in the occult and together they developed a magical system based upon Luciferianism, the veneration of the deity Lucifer , or Lumiel, whom they considered to be a benevolent angelic deity. In Rules for Radicals his final work, published in one year before his death , the prominent American community organizer and writer Saul Alinsky wrote at the end of his personal acknowledgements:.
Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: In Anton LaVey 's The Satanic Bible , Lucifer is one of the four crown princes of hell , particularly that of the East, the "lord of the air ", and is described as the bringer of light, the morning star, intellectualism, and enlightenment. Ford has written on Lucifer as a "mask" of the adversary, a motivator and illuminating force of the mind and subconscious.
The GCoL focuses more on teachings based on the practical world. Family and personal progression are among its key tenets. Over a hundred local residents, mainly Catholic, protested the opening of the church.

Stephen Flowers , in his book on the German magical order Fraternitas Saturni , FS says that "the FS is or was the most unabashedly Luciferian organization in the modern Western occult revival". Lucifer is the demiurge , who created our visible world by breaking the static cosmic order. The result was War in Heaven , by which death entered the world. Lucifer is regarded as the "higher octave " of Saturn Satan representing its "lower octave" , the outermost planet and polar opposite of the Sun in ancient cosmology. Because of this ongoing opposition Lucifer is still fighting the Solar Logos.
The principal battlefield is our earth, which contains a negative-astral and a positive-mental sphere apart from its physical form. Saturn is seen as the great judge with scales and sword, entrusted with weight, measure and number. He is the Guardian of the Threshold, or the gateway to transcendence. Because he betrayed divine mysteries to mankind, he has been punished.
His heavy, dark, leaden qualities must be transformed into gold by the magician, in an alchemical process involving the "repolarisation of lights".
