Kingdom Interview

1. Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

Hell! In the end of last year we’ve recorded 10 new tracks and started to search for a label that can release our second full-length. We started sending promo tracks to some labels and after a while Bart from Helltrasher responded and so new cooperation has started. On 25 march “Morbid Priest of Supreme Blasphemy” will manifest

2. How would you describe the musical sound of the new album and how it differs from previous releases?
Starting from”Unholy Graveyard” our sound became more raw, dark and evil. This is how I expect Kingdom to sound 

3. I know that alot of anti christian topics are in the lyrics, can you tell us a little bit more about your anti christian and also do you have any interest in Satanism or Occultism?
Texts are less satanic more occult. I am rather against any kind of religions, because every one of them kills your individuality and makes you a slave of dogmas that are humiliating for every human. Lyrics are mainly about evil, blasphemy that are somehow connected with demonology, black magic and my visions of devils rituals.

4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?
It’s hard to say that because I simply don’t remember what was the main idea when 10 years ago Kingdom was brought to life.  

5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?
Kingdom has never played concerts but maybe this year few show can be possible. I’m very curious how the new tracks come out live. We will see. 

6. Do you have any touring plans for the new release?
Like I said in question before, maybe

7. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your new album by fans of death metal?
Because the official release is going to be on 25 march You are the first one with interview, and I saw one review that was good for us hehe 

8. Your music is rooted in the old school blasphemous death metal sound, do you feel this musical style is coming back after all these years of death metal going into many directions that do not fit the original  rules of the genre?
If there is a band playing music  that is not worth for me to listen I simply don’t do it. So for me only bands that are in old school style are playing pure death metal and like You said I think that many new bands or older ones are giving hope that old school death metal is coming back

9. What is going on with the other musical projects these days?
If the question is about projects that I am involved in there is only one- Ritual Lair. With RL we released one demo, one split with mighty Deadly Frost, and one EP for label Under the Sign of Garazel. RL is an old school primitive black metal in veins of Hellhammer, Blasphemy, Sarcophago.  

10. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
The path is known and we are going to walk it till the end of Kingdoms days. So You can be sure that this morbid, evil, barbaric proclamations will be created in the future

11. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
I have in my discography mainly old bands: Morbid Angel(to Gateways..), Nunslaughter, Mayhem, Burzum, Bolt Thrower, Angel Corpse, Incantation etc.etc. but also “younger” death/black metal Dead Congregation, Apocalypse Command, Perdition Temple, Manticore etc, so there is enough good music to listen

12. Outside of music what are some of your interests?
First is finding free time to use it for my interests but if there is some books, sport(handball – rather as a fan), creating new tracks, drinking with friends and some more.

13. Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
Thanks for interest and support death metal madnessss!!
