Bloody Terror Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

Mr.Styx: Bloody Terror is an international black/death metal band created in late 2010. The very first record was the cover of Kalmah's song named “Dance Of The Water”.
After this we started to compose the material for debut album. At the same time Dr.Trajan has joined the band as a bass player. During the 18 months the first album was in process.
Debut full-length album "Shadow Of Death" out 15/09/2012 on a various labels.
In early 2013 Dr.Trajan was replaced by Brutal Baphomet on bass/back vocals. With a new line-up we started to compose the very new material for the sophomore album that was finished in august 2014.
Fall of 2014 we signed a contract with Metal Scrap Records. Our second full-length album, "Diaboli Celeritate", was released on November 14, 2014 as a digital edition. On CD album planned to release in 2015.

2.How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recordings?

Powersquad: Melodic and furious Black Metal with the little Death Metal touches, demonic lyrics and epic choirs!

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

PS: When we record our first album mainly I wrote all the lyrics.
Some of them were like joke, some of them sarcastic. But when Brutal Baphomet joined the band he brought dark atmosphere to our band from his occult ideas for lyrics and we have left from humorous lyrics to more serious occult topics.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Bloody Terror?

PS: Back in 2011 when we`ve started to record our debut album we simply searched for the name that has not yet been used by other bands but represents our style and atmosphere. Mr Styx suggest Bloody Terror, and it was exactly what we needed!

5.The band members are both from Ukraine and Russia, how does this work in the recording process?

MS: We collaborate through Internet - recording all stuff in our studios and sending it to each other.

6.Has the band done any live shows or is this studio project?

MS: We`re apart by the thousands of kilometers, perhaps, we`d like to perform a live but still we don`t have such chance yet. That`s the reason why this is a studio project for now.

PS: We have proposals from few festivals to play live. It's possible and very interesting, but we need time & money to meet each other while, as we are now busy with our main bands. Only time will tell .. ;)

7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black an death metal?

MS: Quite positive. The second album attracted great interest among the metalheads than debut record.

8.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects that some of the other band members are involved with?

MS: I have my own solo project named Metal Styx, symphonic folk metal. At late spring of 2014 the EP "Curuvar Firtalion" was out. Also Brutal Baphomet has his own band Evilgod,in whin I`m a bass-player.About a 2 months ago we had our the very first live. Perhaps, we`ll start to make the third album soon.

PS: I'm a guitarist of Ukrainian metal band Majesty Of Revival. Sometimes I playing with other bands as a session guitarist/drummer. Also I released few solo-albums under the name "PowerSquad".

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

PS: We have a lot ideas for future records but now we cant say more about this, because our second album was out only few weeks ago as a digital edition, and planned to release on CD in early 2015. Also we hope that someday we will toured with this band.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

MS: My influence is Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, Graveworm, Crematory.
Now I mostly listen to Iron Maiden, Eluveitie.

PS: I'm influenced by prog/power/heavy metal bands like Symphony X, Sonata Arctica, Time Requiem, Metallica, Annihilator, etc. Also I`m big fan of Crossover music (Waltari) and melodic death metal (Kalmah, The Wake, C.O.B.). Currently on my playlist is Silent Voices, Waltari and Bloody Terror :)

11.Does Occultism play any role in your music?

Brutal Baphomet: UNDOUBTEDLY OCCULTISM play a certain role. Without him we wouldn't have been a black metal band.

12.What are some of your non musical interests?

MS: fantasy books, videogames

PS: Programming, electronics, books

13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Thanks for interesting questions. We hope that you like our new album. Thanks all fans around the world for great feedbacks and support. Metal is forever \m/

Bloody Terror/Diaboli Celeritate/Metal Scrap Records/2014 CD Review

  Bloody  Terror  are  an  international  band  with  members  from  both  Ukraine  and  Russia  that  plays  a  melodic  mixture  of  black  and  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2014  album  "Diaboli  Cereritate"  which  was  released  by  Metal  Scrap  Records.

  Acoustic  guitars  that  have  an  ethnic  feeling  to  them  start  off  the  album  along  with  some  heavy  riffing  and  an  atmospheric  sound  in  the  background  which  also  brings  symphonic  elements  to  the  bands  musical  style  and  when  solos  and  leads  are  added into  the  music  they  bring  in  even  more  of  a  melodic  edge  to  the  recording  and  there  is  also  a  good  amount  of  melody  in  the  riffing  as  well.

  Vocals  mix  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  and  deep  death  metal  growls  together  and  they  also  bring  in  a  brief  use  of  spoken  word  parts  and  whispers  at  times  along  with  all  of  the  musical  instruments  having  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  on  some  of  the  tracks  melodic  clean  singing  can  be  heard  at  times  and  they  bring  in  a  more  operatic  atmosphere  to  the  symphonic  elements  of  the  bands  musical  style.

  Throughout  the  recording  you  can  hear  a  good  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  along  with  blast  beats  being  added  into  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  they  also  bring  in  operatic  female  vocals  at  times   and  as  the  album  progresses  you  can  hear  a  small  amount  of  progressive  rock  elements  and  folk  metal  being  added  into  the  synths.

  Bloody Terror  takes  a  90's  style  of  symphonic  black  metal  and  mixes  it  with  the  more  modern  melodic  death  metal  sound  to  update  this  genre  for  the  modern  day,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness  and  occult  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Bloody  Terror  are  a  very  great  sounding  melodic  and  symphonic  mixture  of  black  and   death  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Devil's  Speed"  "Magic  Of  the  Moon"  and  "Eternal-Life  Vampirism".  8  out  of  10.
