Comments Off on NUNSLAUGHTER

This is only a Partial Interview. You can see the full interview in our print copy don’t be shy to order with us.

1.)Why do you say that NunSlaughter is a True Death Metal? For you what is the true Dm and false Dm?

What I think is TRUE Death Metal is usually considered primitive. Death Metal should be loud, aggressive, Ugly very ugly and primitive. I think that when bands try to refine the music is detracts from its uniqueness in the realm of music. While everyone in pop music wants to be respected for musicianship and quality production Death Metal is out there saying “Hey, you do not need lots of cash to make metal you just need heart”. Well not anymore most bands just want CD contracts and money the music does not mean much anymore.

2.)What’s the difference of NunSlaughter from some DM (death metal) bands?
NunSlaughter was at the forefront of the UG DM movement in the USA and to this day we have not altered or changed our beliefs. We started out making poor sounding demos now we make poor sounding LP’s. DM is about ugliness and you can’t be ugly with a 10,000 recording budget. In addition we also have the heart to go the long haul. I mean not many bands in the world can say that they have been kept a band going as long as we have. Let alone a DM band.

3.)How many years did the NunSlaughter in the Metal World?
NunSlaughter started about 1987 with our first release and we have continued to release metal music for over 15 years!

4.)Your style of music is an old school right. Do you agree with that? Is the style you do since the band formation?
I would say our style is NunSlaughter. It is difficult to say that it is old school because this is what we have always done. We are not a retro band. We do not try to sound like a band from the past we are the fucking past. NunSlaughter has NEVER changed our style. We do not play solos. Our songs are short. Our songs are about Satan, and Hell and Zombies. We do not use Keyboards. No female voice. No triggered drums. Just Death Metal

This is only a Partial Interview. You can see the full interview in our print copy don’t be shy to order with us.

Cult Mongers: How are you Darren and the rest of the band?
Darren : Not too bad Gerald

C.M: Ok, according to your Bio the band started at year 1992 but your debut released at 1996 what is the cause of delay? did the members are still intact since the formation of Mourning Beloveth up to now?
D: It took us four years cause we are lazy bastards haha. No the real reason is that in the early days we had only guitar, drums and vocals and no real fucking songs. Brian then joined and we composed the first demo, recorded by Adrian. Adrian then joined on bass and brian moved to guitar and this has been the same line-up since 1997

C.M: The band is from Ireland, What can you say about the underground scene there? are all the members live there?
D: The underground scene in Ireland is very small. The biggest attendance at underground gigs would be about 250 people. Balance this with when a foreign band comes over and you can get up to 800 people, where do they come from? The Irish underground scene has its own dedicated followers and bands such as Primordial, Waylander, Old Season and many others forging their own path. It also has its own dedicated forum called where you can go to find out what most Irish bands are up to at any one time. Ireland also has now its own pro printed and written metal magazine called Metalworks and this is also put out to help the Irish underground both at home and abroad and it seems the underground maybe growing with each gig I attend but as always only the dedicated and few will remain. Yes we all live in Ireland (fortunately/unfortunately)

Comments Off on MIDGARD

This is only a Partial Interview. You can see the full interview in our print copy don’t be shy to order with us.


1.) can you pls. give me the brief history of midgard?

Midgard was formed in august 2001. A few months later, a two-song-demo CD was recorded. Getting pretty much attention in the Austrian Underground,Midgard played some gigs throughout the country and soon did a club-tour in Germany, Belgium and Italy, to spread their Melodic Deathmetal over Europe. In summer 2002 a new recording was done, to get their new material on CD. “Welcome to Chaosland” includes six songs, showing the quick progress of the band and will be released in september.

2.) Why is it that in your cover artwork it feature there a war?
Well, our central idea is to…sort of “conquer” the world with our music, you know! Because of that, our moto is like, “claiming for world domination”! So, to get attention, and to support those thoughts, we decided to take that pic.

3.)based on your cover artwork i think that your interested in a war?

why No, we are definitly NOT interested in a war!

4.)why is it that your interested in that situation? are you former army?
No one of us has been in the army! We all did our civil service, so…

Comments Off on INFLICTION

This is only a Partial Interview. You can see the full interview in our print copy don’t be shy to order with us.

CULT MONGERS: How are you Curtis? What’s new in your band Infliction?

CURTIS: What’s up Gerald. We just finished playing the GATHERING OF THE SICK death metal fest in New Mexico, and are doing a local show here next Friday. We’ve also been concentrating on writing our new material for our next CD.

C.M: You had been in the underground scene since 1989, what are your comments in U.G. scene in Texas and worldwide since then?
C: Luckily Texas has always had a great underground scene. It was strong before and it’s still going strong today. Worldwide the same thing. I think it is much stronger than in America as a whole. America in general has it’s ups and downs for the UG scene.

C.M: You’re former band was Sacred Fate, did it release any demo or album?
C: They released a demo after I quit playing with them. At the time I was playing in OVERDOSE with Ben. OVERDOSE was the band that led us to DISORDER.

C.M: Then in 1991 you brought in Guitarist Ronnie and change moniker to Disorder, why the change and any releases from this moniker?
C: When we brought in Ronnie we started becoming a lot faster and more technical in our song writing. OVERDOSE was great band but since we changed we changed our name too. Ronnie was a brilliant musical mind and a great person. We never recorded anything as DISORDER until Ramon joined.

C.M: In your previous band I believe that your still playing thrash metal? Do you think that if Ronnie was still alive today you will still playing the genre of thrash metal?
C: That’s a very good question. At that time death metal was just coming out strong. We were really into early SEPULTURA, DEATH and VIO-LENCE and past all the MEGADETH, METALLICA, etc. so we were already headed into death metal. The thing that took Ronnie and Ben to get used to was guttural vocals. But we had already started changing that way. I guess in that sense, if Ronnie was still alive we would be doing death metal much like we’re doing today.

Comments Off on FROZEN TEARS

This is only a Partial Interview. You can see the full interview in our print copy don’t be shy to order with us.

Cult Mongers: How are you Taiti, surely Frozen Tears music will surely recall or relive those heavy metal days back then?

Taiti: Well, I hope. Heavy metal is still alive and we are the classic example that also young bands can propose this kind of music, naturally with a better and more heavy sound that in the past. We propose this music since 1997 and I hope we will continue to play for many years.

C.M: .After the recording of the cd “Way of Temptation” why Leonardo Cipriani had been substituted by Mirko Serra?
T: It is not correct to say that Leonardo Cipriani had been substituted. He left the band ’cause he haven’t >all the necessary time to dedicate to the band. We re still friends and something he help us in the promotion of the cd.

C.M: How is it working with Gabriele Ravagla , the one who produced your cd?
T: Did he also produce your second demo “wasteland”? Gabry is a very good sound technician and it’s very funny to work with him. We recorded to fear studios our second demo Wasteland and our first cd Mysterious Time. I really hope to have the possibility to work with him in the future. He is also a good guitar player.If you like hard rock try to listen his cd with Bad Ambition.

C.M: Currently how is it working with Megahard records?
T: Our contact was for the realisation of two cd. Now we have to talk with Megahard and then we have to decide what is better for us. Personally I thinked to have a better promotion with Way of a temptation. Actually I don’t know what we will do.

C.M: What was the reaction local and foreign scene from your cd “Way of Temptation”?
T: Very good. In Italy the cd is out since the 16 September and we have received many good reviews in the most important Italian magazines and also in Brazil and Greece. I can’t say nothing about sales ’cause we have still to talk with our label to know the results of this first period.

Comments Off on FORSAKEN

This is only a Partial Interview. You can see the full interview in our print copy don’t be shy to order with us.

CULT MONGERS: It seems that all Swedish acts like At the Gates, Dissection, and Arch Enemy had been fused together to your music that led to the creation of this Mighty album “Manifest of hate”, what’s your comment?

NICKE: Well, we all listen to so many different kinds of metal and the inspirational sources are many. Everything is about the mood you´re in, I never listen to only brutal or only melodic metal. For me it´s good or bad music, if you would deny some of the very good bands out there just because it doesn´t fit to what you are supposed to listen to, then I must say that it´s a big loss. Fuse that together and you may have one point of why our sound is so diverse. But we never think of it, we only love to play brutal music and the CD you´ve heard is the result of five minds cooperating to do what we all love, and that is Metal!!!

C.M: How are you Nicke and the rest of the band? Is the line-up still the same since it’s formation?
N: We formed the band in -97, back then as Septic Breed. After the recording of the first demo, “Patterns Of Delusive Design”, two members were replaced by Anders Sjöholm and Michael Håkansson. With this line-up we recorded one more demo called “Reaper”, the demo that got us hooked to Century Media Records. And we recorded our debut album, “Manifest Of Hate. Unfortunately Michael had to leave the band before the recording of our second album, “Arts Of Desolation”, because of his duties with Evergrey. Two months ago we found a new bass player, Stefan Berg, who is now a permanent member in The Forsaken clan.

C.M: How important is technicality in Forsaken’s Music?
N: Not that important. As long as the songs we compose is of a high calibre and that the performance is satisfying we don´t hesitate to record the songs. Of course, we all love technical metal and that may be inspirational and colouring the songs.

Comments Off on ANTIPATHY

This is only a Partial Interview. You can see the full interview in our print copy don’t be shy to order with us.

1. In your bio. it says that almost a year you don’t have a vocalist.So how’s antipathy now?

Antipathy is running strong. Samgar’s voice is getting more and more powerful each day. We are currently writing new material that will work with his voice more. Our older writing style was more customized for our old singer. Now that our singer is also our bass player, we have to take into consideration where we put vocals.

2. how and when the band formed?
The band originally formed a bunch of years ago in Ossining, NY.Through mutual friends we all came together after getting to know eachother and jamming a couple of times. After years, we changed bass players and singers to wind up where we are now. The last couple of years, we have stabilized and are focusing on getting our material out there and get some tours on the road. I have a really long version of how we got together if you want that.

3.  are you satisfied now w/ the new line-up?
I am very satisfied with our new lineup. We have a stage presence like no other and with Sam as a frontman, we have a whole new look.

4. in samgar’s voice why didn’t he use the true growl of death metal voice?
Not sure what this question really means, but, we try to stay away from the generic death metal sound that has been floating around out there. We take pride in writing and coming up with new and interesting ways to keep things heavy without being repetitive. Most of the growling vocals out there get pretty stale after a while. I like Samgar’s voice because it is heavy as fuck and you can still understand what he is saying.

Comments Off on Dysentery


1.) Can you pls. give me the brief description of Dysentery? Is this the original line-up since it was formed?

DYSENTERY was formed in early 98 out from the ashes of PAX-VOBISCUM, a brutal death metal also from Davao.We have been through a lot of line up change’s since the beginning. Later it was remained as a solid 4 piece member. The current line up is, Jonglord-Bass Donald-Guitars Barry-Drums Ryan-vocals

2.) How strong and active is Dysentery in Davao?
As ive said before, the band is hailing since 98 and we have been playing a lot of local gigs here in Davao and the rest of Mindanao. So obviously we are still active from the past 4 years and still goin stronger.

3.) How can you described your first demo called “Anatomy of massacre” and i know that your recording a new demo. how can you differentiate your new demo to the old demo?
The old demo is raw and has a weaker sound. Honestly, im not satisfied bout that shit. We always want a good and quality sound before but that’s all we have fuckin got. Our second demo probably kicks fuckin ass coz we have managed to get a good soundman and bad-ass equipments.

4.) Do you receive some feedback and comments to your listeners? what are those?
We have got a lot of good feedbacks bout that demo actually, but still the only thing that bothers them is the weak sound productions. Wait till they here the new one……..

5.) In your own brutal words. How can you describe your music?
Brutal straight forward in your face Death Fuckin Metal! Simple as that.

6.) What are the influences of Dysentery? Any local bands that influenced Dysentery?
We have been listening to a lot of Metal musick for a very long time but not in general. I like Heavy Metal like Judas Priest, Iron maiden , Thrash Metal like,Kreator,Sodom,Metallica(pre-Justice for all) but when it comes to musickal influence’s, we are all freakin out of early U.S. specially Floridian Death Metal bands like Monstrosity, Suffocation(RIP),and Malevolent Creation. Sorry we have no local influence.

7.) When Dysentery is performing on stage what are the reactions of the filipino metalheadz? Can you pls. describe to me the scene?
We are playing Brutal Death Metal, that’s why we are very aggressive on stage. We want to transfer what we feel when we are playing live and of course we dont want the crowd to just sit around like watchi’n T.V.

8.) How dedicated you are in Dysentery? How is it meant for you and to each and every member of Dysentery?
All in the band has a very strong bonding to each other. We have watch each and everyone in the band grow and breath metal of death. We have no plans to give up the band and go through our different lives but instead we just want to move things forward.

9.) Any plans to play here in manila with some great bands in davao?
If given the chance, Why not! We always want to play and bring our musick to the Underground masses overthere. If you know some organizer’s who are interested for us to play there, pls. do not hesitate to contact us. A tour with Al-Iblis, Decapitated,or Korihor would probably rule.

10. If your given a chance to tour here in our country. What placed would you liked to performed or what is the best placed for Dysentery?
Davao and Panabo-our neighboring city probably is the best place for Dysentery coz there’s a lot of true and dedicated metalhead’s that support the scene and our band. Maybe Luzon is a great place to invade, nah maybe later…………

11.) In an underground metal show in davao. Does the open venue show happen?
No, i dont know if that will happened here in Davao.As of now we are very satisfied in a small underground venue.

12.) How can you relate your music in your personality?
I dont have an idea how can i relate my music to myself, but the only thing i know im seriuosly and mentally ill in this kind of genre…ha..ha..ha..

13.) When you first played as a deathmetal band. do you think your spiritual beliefs and personality changed?
It did change in different ways actually. It almost destroye’d my life from the first time ive heard this albums, Suffocation-effigy of the forgotten Monstrosity-imperial doom Possesed-seven churches Death-individual thought patterns Morbid Angel- altars of madness Incantation-onward to golgotha

14.) How will you support your band and most specially in releasing some materials? Are there some people who help in Dysentery?
I do all the lyrics and answering the mails and stuffs.Boyet of Al-Iblis and Davaodeath help’s a lot in promotions etc. and we hail him for his effort in our band.

15.) I know that you support the underground metal. How long did you do it for the sake of the underground metal here in our country?
Ive been doin this kind of bussiness for a very long time and i still keep on supporting a lot of local band’s and zine. I also enjoy goin in underground Grincore gigs and stuffs.

16.) Aside from Dysentery you are also a member of the loose bound organization called Davao Death organization and you are also a gig organizer. as a gig organizer what is the best place/venue for an underground metal concert?
Actually we will release the second demo Through Davaodeath distribution with the help of Boyet and i hope things will be great. As an organizer the best place for an underground metal venue will be “Slackers” It is quite a large venue but the rent is cheap and also the beers are not that expensive.

17.) How supportive the Filipino metalheadz in Dysentery?
Things are doin fine with Filipino metalheads, i highly appreciate there support for Dysentery and the rest of our local bands. I think this is the time to support each other instead of backstabbing and stupid stuffs like that.

18.) Can you consider your band as a best death metal in Davao?
Not really, there are a lot of tight and trendkilling death metal bands here in Davao city including Al-Iblis,Decapitated and even Apokalips from Panabo. I cant wait to party with this guys once again this coming gig this oct.

19) Is there some discrimination in davao about the music or style of the band just like for example in the case of the fucking bullshit new metal do you consider it as a part of the Underground metal or it is just a disgrace? what can you say about that?
I think every underground metal scene has it own versios of discriminations. This is the most common problem in every scene and i dont give a damn shit bout this nonsense, what i mean is , you cant force them to stop critisizing in us in every single action. BUt the only thing is , the more they critisize, the more we work hard to be a better musicians. By the way what the hell is new metal? did they exist in the 80’s? Fuck! i dont give a single support in this trendsucking idiots. It’s just a simple worthless crap with distorted guitars and stupid stuff like that.

20.) What can you say to those bands that are changing their style?
Its there own live’s so why bother.

21.) I download your one song from “Davaodeath org.” website. It’s a totally raw and brutal and what a fucking growl voice you have (di ba sumasakit troat mo nyan)? hows the writing process of Dysentery? Is it music first before the lyrics?
Yeah its totally raw and my voice is deep grunting style and not this typical frog style ultra guttural vomit voice. We always write the musick first then we arrange it with the lyrics.

22.) This aint a question anymore. Thanks for some brutal answer. Hope till end Dysentery is always there for the Underground metal. The last fucking brutal words are yours?
I just want to thank you Adrian and the rest of Cult Mongers . Keep it sick Brother! and if anyone is interested bout Dysentery, pls. do not hesitate to write for more info and stuffs. Keep the underground METAL of DEATH alive……………….

Comments Off on Al Iblis

Cult Mongers: How are u Abdullah? What’s new in Al Iblis Camp?

Abdullah: I’m quite ok, am still busy with my studies. Al Iblis, in the near future, will be facing the same problem we had a few months back. I thought we were over it, but Our 12 year old drummer is set to leave for the UK again this november. So by then, it’ll be ‘under uestionable circumstances’. We’re set to record our second EP this year, we hope to finish it before the kid flies off to Brisbane. Davao Death will probably release it next year.

C.M: Can you pls. give us the brief bio of the band?
A: The band’s former monicker was Schizophreniac. Members were myself and Khalil. Our initial original score ‘Cute little worm’ earned quite a response, that same tune is now ‘Parasitic Enzyme’. Schizophreniac was formed late October, we changed focus, changed the name to Iblis the following month. We were lucky enough to have Limmah as our vocalist/bassist by March of 2002.

C.M: From the guitar riffs, drum playing and the vocals, it is undoubtedly similar to Floridian death metal, but it has your own ingredients like in drums and guitars it has this Middle East style music, what can you say about that?
A: Personally, I’m obsessed with the middle east. I just dont know why that is, the arabic language and music, everytime i hear it being spoken and played, brings out certain feelings of antiquity. I dont have the exact words to put it, I think mezmerized would be the word for it. I got the idea musically off Nile.

C.M: What about the band’s influences, who are they? Who are your guitar godz?
A: Let me list down our main influences: Nile Dying Foetus Sinister Cannibal Corpse Deicide Brutality Mortification

C.M: Hegemony means leadership, ascendancy and domination, in what form(government, religion) you want to establish this Right Hegemony?
A: The title of the album is actually our form of expressing antipathy towards this fucking world order. There is no such thing as righteous hegemony, certain groups who try to establish hegemony are people who need mental prescription for severe psychosis. I dedicate this album to my hero – the blood thirsty Swine – Ariel Sharon.

C.M: What was the tape cover of “Righteous Hegemony” suppose to depict?
A: We had problems with that, we changed the cover now. Certain jewish sympathizing groups have branded us as terrorists, just because we had that for our cassette cover. that cover can be summarized as this: ‘Dominating Power:Death for all through Hegemony’.

C.M: The former name of the band is Iblis then you changed it to Al Iblis, why the changed? And what was Al Iblis means?
A: There is this certain band from Italy with that name, they have quite made their mark on underground BM scene, thus, we changed our name to Al Iblis, to make it even more arabic, or something hehehe… Al Iblis means ‘The Great Satan’ or ‘The Devil’ in arabic.

C.M: Usually Davao Bands records in this recording studio POLYFUSION, did the “Right Hegemony” had been recorded there?
A: Yes. hahahah…we recorded that with a meager budget of 460 pesos. Hirap talaga nitong walang pera hehehe…

C.M: Why did you choose to cover Deicide “Sacrificial Suicide” doe it pertains to suicide bombings in the Middle East or a tripped out song? What about your view Political in Middle East and of course in the Philippines?
A: Its a tripped out song, it has nothing to do with our musical direction so to speak. We also recorded Deicide’s The Truth Above, but we didn’t include it on our material.Fuck the Oppressive state of Israil!!! There isn’t enough time to fully explain this issue though. As for our country? I hope there will come a time when our Politicians would think more on what’s good for their constituents than what’s good for themselves. So much ego tripping tsk tsk tsk…

C.M: Ahwak is a Classical song, who performed the singing there?
A: Ahwak is the artist infact hehehe… I just downloaded that over the web, quite strange that it doesn’t have any title there, it just said ‘Ahwak song’.

C.M: What Pig Speech is all about? Who is David Levy?
A: When translated, what he was ranting there goes something like: ‘…child for child…we will burn the land of Lebanon…’ pretty sick wisted mind acting out there! David Levy is an Israeli bloodthirsty barbarian, just like that bloated pig Sharon.

C.M: it’s a good thing that you had Davao Death there in Davao who supports local bands, what can you say about this organization?
A: hell yeah! I dunno man, but there aren’t any activities lately. I hope they come up with something new.

C.M: In terms of sales and distribution, what’s the status of the band?
.A: its been distributed fairly, there were many who were interested to own their copy, and there were people who were quite alarmed with our song titles, not to mention our image. Sales? hahhaha… no comment.

C.M: Do you think how far did your demo had been distributed?
A: We had demos sent to India, Saudi Arabia [Tripalium], Malaysia [Syukri SEAMetalForce], US [Alex Zepeda], and so on…

C.M: Any letter correspondence from Abroad? What about here in Manila?
A: There were some. I dont usually reply, i dont have much time to do that, and besides, I’m sick and tired of those fucking ripoffs. Its great that Cult Mongers and Tripalium, among others, support us in a way.

C.M: Aside from Davao Death, any Labels from overseas that was interested in your band?
A: Yeah, there’s Sacred Production [Malaysia]- still under negotiation i think, initially Maelstrom666 [Thailand] asked a cd-r for distribution, its only now that the CD is available.

C.M: Ok, when was the first gig did the band played? What’s the crowd reaction?
A: It was way back in March of this year. Initially there were ‘blank’ reactions, but then after the first song, there were people who were there in front of us flashing the sign. We also played in August at Water World, the crowd was quite aggressive! And our last one was at Slackers, September 7. Again, they were impressed, open jaws, specially at the 12 year old drummer!

C.M: When playing live what was the original composition did the band played? Currently do you still play cover, if yes from what bands and song?
A: As usual, songs like Eretz Israil, Rival to an Empire, Al Qassam never miss the line up. For covers, the usual Deicide stuff, we also did a cover of Slayer’s Seasons in the Abyss, and Obituary’s The End Complete.

C.M: Any band there in your town that was worth of your recommendation? And why?
A: Dysentery. They Kick Ass!

C.M: Roel of Tripalium Zine ask about your lyrical content of your songs and you decline, maybe this time you can divulge the Lyrical Content in this Fanzine (he he he -ed)? Ok Abdullah thank you very much for your time and hope someday you can play with us here in Manila?
A: hehehe… I dunno man. 😉 I think you should ask Ibn Rasheed regarding that issue. Hah! I’m more than willing to play there in Manila! Thanks for your time dude!! Keep up the good work!
Hail Cult Mongers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
