EXCLUISVE PREMIERE: “Piercing the Cervix of Nehemah” – TRACK FROM THE DEBUT EP OF SERPENT SPELLS

‘Metal’ has never thrived in Bangladesh for many reasons, mostly due to geography, culture and popular beliefs. Metal has therefore always been a very ‘underground’ phenomena, in terms of quality bands, promoters, labels and all other aspects. Only a handful of bands have shone from here. Heavy metal is mostly restricted to capital and few other large cities. The fact is, out of other styles of metal, ‘black metal’ has always suffered from numbers and yes, there were only a few classy black metal acts that had emerged from this land.

VD Spoke to the Virtuous Evil: Interview with Lörd Matzigkeitus (Vocals of Idolatry, Author of Catharsis Spoke Her Virtuous Evil)

 

Some black metal bands have established a common lineage between dark lyrics and poetry. Aesthetic lyrics of Dissection, Lord Belial, Emperor or Dead Era Mayhem are some illustrations that surely back up my previous claim. Lörd Matzigkeitus has inscribed some odious belles-lettres for the lyrical purpose of his band Idolatry, that surely contain the literary elegance. Lörd Matzigkeitus has taken his endeavor to next level by setting out the initiative of “Catharsis Spoke her Virtuous Evil”, an incendiary black metal poetry book on death, despair, Satan, agony and raw kinky bondage sex. Meanwhile,  Lörd Matzigkeitus is coming up with two other black metal projects as well. The following conversation with him focuses on different aspects related to Idolatry, his poetry,  upcoming black metal projects, personal beliefs, and some other captivating issues.
