SKOGEN - ENTREVISTA

Hace poco que se editó Eld, el tercer trabajo de los suecos Skogen. Un trabajo que los afianza en la escena black y dota de maduerez su sonido. En esta breve entrevista nos aclaran como han sido estos años para la banda.

1. Tell us a bit like the idea of forming the band and how were your beginnings

Me and Mathias wanted to play atmospheric black metal, so we made a few songs each and recorded them. We got signed to Frostscald rather quickly, and now we have released three albums.

2. How was the songwriting process of Eld? Preparing You wear long time?

Well, the songwriting never stops. Some of the songs were made directly after Svitjod, but sometimes stuff takes time. And we wanted to make everything as great as we could.

3. How has the band's sound over these three jobs?

We have evolved a bit since Vittra, but we still sound like Skogen.



4. If I'm not mistaken the letters are written in Swedish and deal with aspects of nature, what destacaríais on your lyrics? What inspires you to write?

Well, the first album is all about nature, the second deals with the subject here and there, but this time we don't mention it, because we don't want to get stuck in a genre, like folk metal or whatever people want to call it.

5. Tell us a little type of equipment that you use in the recording sessions and live performances.
We use Gibson guitars, Marshall amps, Engl amps and so on.
6. How were your beginnings in music? Groups and disks What are your inspiration and what would you recommend us?

My first album I bought for my own money was Metallica - Kill 'em all. When it comes to inspiration it's everything from King Diamond to Funeral Mist. Some recommendations that aren't too obvious are Mgła, Blaze of Perdition, Sun's Blood, Saturnalia Temple, VI, Sigrblot, Karnarium, Deathspell Omega etc etc.

7. Five basic cds in black history.

It's hard, but I have to mention from different eras and countries, to be fair:
Von - Satanic Blood Angel (compilation)
Mayhem - De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas
Burzum - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
Dark Funeral - The Secrets of the Black Arts
Watain - Sworn to the Dark

8. How difficult is the coexistence within the group? Who is the leader of the now compose, or all aportáis ideas and you respect?

It's not difficult at all. We all have the same vision. No one is the leader.



9. How is your relationship with Frostscald Records? Are imply with you, I feel comfortable in the seal?

It's good. Mihail is a very nice guy.

10. How is the public responding concerts? Are you planning some concerts to promote Eld?

We have only played live once, so it's hard to say. But yes, we are planning more concerts, but nothing is official yet.

11. Thanks for your time, if you want to add something for people who like Skogen, this is it, thanks. I hope the questions are to your liking.

Thank you very much for your interest. Keep listening to our albums, we have more to offer! Hell döden.
