Can you give me a bit of history about CHAOS INVOCATION? Also,
when did the band form and how did you decide on the name?
A: We firstly stirred our blood inside the ritual chalice
five restless years ago. Still the pedestal of our circle is
held by the same three carved and pierced soils of flesh, whose
hearts pound, urged by fanaticism and ultimate madness. We never
searched for a fitting name, since we started trembling on the
path of snakes; we knew that this timeless journey will form
an order of syllables once. In the end it must be emphasized
that “Chaos Invocation” perfectly describes our
way of existing. We will reign in chaos, in blood we kneel and
in flames we stand till the end.
Sioux: Your album
In Bloodline With The Snake is quite a masterpiece of
Satanic Black Metal. How long did it take you to write the songs?
What about the recording process, what do you do to get into
such a mood to create the diabolic atmosphere in your music?
A: In Bloodline WithThe Snake only contains
songs that were written between the fourth and the sixth year
and even if it was created through our own hands, emotions and
knowledge it changed us in a never imagined way. What we went
through that time could not be easily captured in words. Some
things can’t be described in a rational way. I can’t
actually imagine how long we locked the doors and lived inside
“The Temple Of Chains”, only fed with ecstasy of
a great emotional breakthrough. I guess it was everything than
harmonic or comfortable and still our bodies are affected through
these truly sleepless nights full of baneful magic, rituals,
meditation and praises in the rise of the eighth year when In
Bloodline With The Snake was firstly banned on a sonic
level. We drowned our souls in a whirl of fire and we gave hand
to the burning “angels”. It took that long, because
there was a time when the circle was split physically. It seemed
that several medical institutes wanted to be confronted with
the source of our madness. Yes, the sun of our lord shined over
the day and in the nights he longed for their dreams. It was
interesting to see all those people that are legitimated to
work with the minds of others struggling into their own emotional
gangland. There are dangerous things inside the wavering, living
darkness. Then finally in the rise of this year we entered the
Hellsound-Studio and rerecorded the album in only four days.
Night and day seemed to be the same; it was a great chaotic
Sioux: Are you
satisfied with the way the album turned out? When will we see
it become available?
A: It was unleashed through The World Terror Committee (http://www.w-t-c.org/)
at the eighth of October to fulfill your minds with death, death
and death. Yes, we were satisfied when we did it, but now we
are hungry again. We are currently doing the pre-record for
the upcoming album that will contain several demonic injections
mixed since the sixth year. Total Delirium Worship will be its
essence. We tried to capture as much as possible in the music
and the lyrics. You cannot imagine yet, but be warned that every
tune is a step nearer to chaos.
M: The album turned out exactly as we wanted it to: As
a Luciferian terror chorale! Each tune on In Bloodline
WithThe Snake was played with utmost addiction; each
word was turned into a psalm of the holy Lord.
Sioux: What are
your views about Satanism in black metal today?
A: Contrary to many other bands we think that satanic fanaticism
shall be the only essence of black metal. Fuck off towards all
those depressive uninspired emotional wracks. SATAN IS THE ONLY
TRUTH! Don’t call it black metal when you practice your
so called art. We think that only a few bands take Satanism
truly serious and don’t use his name to have a fundament
for their easily to break image.
M: Most of the worms that call their Metal "satanic"
don’t even fulfill the fundament of this movement, the
searching spirit. The thirst for wisdom has to be stronger than
your natural instincts. Therefore we despise these cocksucking
morons who don’t even aim to step into the beyond. Through
their fear of the unknown their light will never leave this
Sioux: A lot of
black metal bands seem to be emerging from Germany recently,
it seems the scene there is a hot bed, what do you think of
this? What are your thoughts on the Black Metal genre today?
A: Really? Well, maybe our eyes are closed and our ears
are blocked in this point. There aren’t that many bands
that get our attention. Harmless and burned out! The people
lost their view for the things that exist in the twilight.
M: That what you call a scene is nothing more than our
next victim for which we are already digging the grave.
to your album, In Bloodline With The Snake, I hear a
bit of a Watain and Ondskapt influence. What bands have influenced
you over the years?
A: What you mean is probably the atmosphere. I don’t
think that we have anything in common on a musical level with
both of the bands. Maybe it is the same fanaticism that forces
Watain and us. We don’t want to limit our creativity and
tried to channel the source of our inspiration to the mysterious
forces. Well, extremists will always be compared with other
M: As I know A. for quite a long time now, I can say
that he never had the point of view to copy somebody at all.
If you ever become a witness of our live rituals, you will see
that he is able to turn his guitar into an opened gate through
which the faces of our Lord truly reveal. The same I can say
for myself. Words are turned into morbid adulations of death.
On the other hand we are rather being compared to the terrorist
of Watain than to John Lennon or Mahatma Gandhi.
Sioux: Are there
any future plans for a tour, either Europe or overseas? Any
bands you would like to tour with?
A: Currently we try to build up a live line up, but it is
very unsatisfying. We are bored by all those idiots in our hometown
scene. It seems that they have stopped at one point in their
development and aren’t interested in going further. We
are hungry, but a tour is not possible yet. Our time will come
and our prayers shall be sung also on your continent.
Sioux: What do
you wish to accomplish through CHAOS INVOCATION’s music?
Where do you see the band in five years?
A: Chaos and breathless death! That lies beyond our imagination.
Sioux: You are
currently looking for a bass player, who handled the bass before
and what do you expect from the one you choose?
A: The new man should fit in the circle, he should hail
the name of the lord in repetition through every breath and
he should achieve the powers that can be called.
M: A few months ago we had somebody, who at least tried
to handle this instrument. But once the lord grasped his neck
with his cold hands, his faith decayed to dust. A couple of
weeks, after he had joined our circle he told us that he couldn’t
handle this job anymore. Terrible nightmares seemed to haunt
him, ever since he joined CHAOS INVOCATION. Obviously
his pillars couldn’t carry the weight of death.
Sioux: I thank
you for your time and thoughts. I shall leave the last words
M: From the smallest to the greatest, we cast a spell on
