INTERVIEW with Erik Karlsson (Riff master) In Festering Remains. (swe)

 INTERVIEW with   Erik Karlsson (Riff master) In Festering Remains. (swe)
By SatansRazorBlog 2013

1. Could you tell us a bit about the band the history behind it

It’s kind of a long story so I’ll try to keep it short!

We used to be a black metal band called Demonic Funeral started by me (Erik) and Oliver (Festering Remains’ ex-drummer.) After some time playing black metal we both realized that we wanted to play death metal and we needed a singer for the band. Oliver said he had some friends he could talk to and about a month later Tim joined the band. Oliver felt that death metal wasn’t really his thing so he left the band after about four months. Me and Tim continued to write material for the EP for 7 months or so and in October of 2012 we recorded it at Garageland studios in our hometown Umeå.   

2. Your EP Stabbed beyond all recognition has been out for a while now how do you think the response has been so far? Has it been as you expected?

I think most people liked it, which is awesome because we didn’t think that so many people would!

3. What is currently happening in the band?
We have recruited a new member: Kim on bass and I finished writing all the songs for the next EP a few days ago and we’ll enter the studio very soon! Keep an eye out on our page for further information.
4. What where some of your influences while writing the ep?
We were inspired by a lot of bands but the biggest influences were Gorgasm, Viral Load, Putrid Pile and Suffocation.

5. Where do you take your inspiration to your lyrics / Music?
When Tim wrote the lyrics on the EP he was mainly inspired by horror movies and serial killers. The music was inspired by so many bands but as I said earlier the biggest influences were Gorgasm, Viral Load, Putrid Pile and Suffocation!  

6. Are you planning on releasing any new material soon?

See question 3! :P

7. How has people reacted due there not many young bands as you guys in this type of genre?

Many people are impressed that two 15 years olds can write and perform the music that we do. I don’t really think that it matters if the band members are young or old as long as the music is good. 

8. If you could tour with any band you haven’t who would it be and why?

I could make a list with like 500 bands we want to tour with haha! But the ones that would on the top on that list would probably be Dying Fetus, Putrid Pile, Suffocation, Viral Load, Vomitous and Cerebral Bore! 

9 I understand you guys are fans of the Wrong turn movies, what are your exceptions for the new WT 5? 

I’ve heard that it isn’t that good and none of us have seen it yet but our expectations are still very high because we loved the other ones so much. I mean, we wrote a song about them haha!

10 The name Festering Remains how did you guys come up with such a killer name?

We were all chatting together over the internet trying to come up with a good band name fitting for a death metal band (this was when we went from playing black metal to death metal) and after like 3 hours someone came up with Festering remains.

11. Your EP does not only future 3 awesome songs, but also a cover from Bloodsoaked how did that happened why that song?

We just wanted to cover a song on the EP so we started to search for songs we could cover. And there’s not really a reason we chose No god other than it’s a crushing song!  

12 Who is the creator behind your amazing logo?
The logo is made by Christopher Horst. He’s a really talented artist. Go check him out at

13 Any chances of a music video?

We haven’t talked about it that much but it would be really cool if we made one!

14. Where do you see yourself and the band in 10 years from now?

We have released at least two full-length albums and we’re still going strong. We have done a tour with at least one of the earlier mentioned bands and we have performed at a bigger festival such as Neurotic death fest or Obscene Extreme!

15. Do you like any new bands in the Death Metal scene?

I do like some bands. Not that many though. There are lots of shitty bands these days and the whole ‘’slam’’ thing has gone way out of control.

16. Any last words to your friends and fans?

Yeah, thanks for supporting us by buying our EP!  Merch will be printed very soon and a new EP is coming soon! Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for further information! Thanks again and keep it real! Cheers!

Read more:

CHILDREN OF BODOM have set Halo of Blood as the title of their eagerly anticipated eighth studio album, set for a June 06 European release, and a June 11 North American release via Nuclear Blast Records. Today, CHILDREN OF BODOM unveils Halo of Blood's cover art, created by artist Sami Saramäki, known for his work on the classic COB records Follow the Reaper, Are You Dead Yet? and Hate Crew Deathroll.

The band's bass player Henkka Blacksmith comments, "We wanted to have a winter scene. Somehow it fits well with the atmosphere of the music and the composing session. It could be Lake Bodom actually, frozen, with people trapped under the ice. Very Finnish looking scene.

We were really happy how Sami created the whole imagery!"

CHILDREN OF BODOM recorded Halo of Blood in Finland's Danger Johnny Studios (located at a top secret, undisclosed location in Helsinki) with recording engineer Mikko Karmila, who worked with the band on their earlier albums Hatebreeder, Follow the Reaper and Hate Crew Deathroll and producer Peter Tägtgren (Marduk, Amon Amarth) who oversaw production of both vocals and keyboards on the record. The album will be mixed at Finnvox Studios.

CHILDREN OF BODOM frontman Alexi Laiho comments, "Halo Of Blood is the eighth studio album from Children of Bodom. Musically, we've kept it fresh and new while still maintaining the elements that make COB's sound so recognizable. This new album has both the fastest and the slowest songs we've ever made and lyrically, there are themes we've never touched on before. Prepare yourselves for ten tracks of pure Nordic metal!"

Halo of Blood track listing:

01 Waste of Skin

Randy Blythe on the way home to the United States again

Randy Blythe on the way home to the United States again - pays tribute to deceased parents  Randy Blythe was acquitted this week on the charge of manslaughter after an incident during a Lamb Of God concert 2010th For the second time since the release he comments on the whole situation in a new instagram post where he pays tribute to the deceased fans parents. You can read the full post below.

On his official Instagram account he describes the whole situation and celebrates Daniel Noseks parents and urges people to give them a thought.!

The entire message:

"I am leaving Prague now- I hope not to return for a long while. This has nothing to do with this city, the people who live here, or the Czech Republic itself at all. This is a wonderful place, & many people have been kind to me. Not a single soul here has been rude or mean to me at all, nor done me any harm- in fact it is quite the opposite. I have grown to love this city, for it is a marvelous, magical town. I encourage everyone to come visit here, to see this lovely country. But for me it is a place of great sadness

 While I am relieved that my innocence was proven & apparently I shall not be going to prison, I am in no way shape or form a happy man right now. The small inconveniences I have been through since my arrest are not noteworthy. People go through much worse daily & still keep a smile on their faces, but currently my smiles are far & few between. A young man is still dead, & his family still suffers. Please remember that fact. This family did no wrong, & have shown me great kindness- with silence, with actions, & finally with words- they spoke on my behalf to the court, & we had a private talk afterwards. All I will say about that is that they were very kind to me & displayed the utmost strength & class, & wished me a good life. They just want to get on with their lives the best they can. I wish them only the best, & will keep them in my thoughts & prayers. Please do the same- think good thoughts of them & healing thoughts for them. Trust me, they are good people, & I mean that from the bottom of my heart. They did NOTHING wrong.

This picture is from Kutna Hora, at the Sedlec Ossuary. I was there yesterday- like Prague, it is an amazing place. About this city, Kafka wrote: “Prague doesn’t let go…This old crone has claws. One has to yield, or else.” I have found this to be true. I am yielding, I am leaving a part of myself here, I think. Some bit of me will always roam these streets at night, & that is only fitting. Now I will go home & try to see what good I can make come out the destruction that occurred here- it is the only correct thing to do. Rest in peace, Daniel Nosek."

DARK FUNERAL announces festival shows with Emperor Magus Caligula

DARK FUNERAL announces festival shows with Emperor Magus Caligula

The Swedish black metal legend DARK FUNERAL is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2013 with a number of festival shows all over Europe. Formed in 1993 by Lord Ahriman the band quickly gained massive underground support by being one of the most ferocious and fastest black metal bands on earth. Since then they have spread their unholy gospel over the whole world and build up a loyal cult following from the coldest parts of the northern hemisphere to the hottest hell of Asia.

Now it’s time to praise their diabolic past with a very special set-list on some of the summer festivals (more details soon) and also with a surprising return of their classic vocalist: Emperor Magus Caligula who left the band on good terms for personal reasons in 2010 will take over the mic again for the 2013 festivals. He was DARK FUNERAL’s frontman from 1996 to 2010 from the second album, “Vobiscum Satanas” (1998) album to the last “Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus” (2009).

DARK FUNERAL is currently looking for a permanent new vocalist. Serious applications can be send to After an extensive and exhausting tour through Asia and Australia in late 2012 the band parted ways with temporary vocalist Nachtgarm. Nonetheless, DARK FUNERAL proceed with the work on their upcoming new album as well as on re-issues of the entire DARK FUNERAL back catalogue out this year via Century Media Records.
