Interviews Ist Krieg

Metal interviews are almost unanimously terrible. Even at its peak of artistic integrity and creativity, Metal has been plagued by uninteresting and downright terrible interviews. If it wasn't for a chosen few who led the cause with blazing torches of intelligent questions and genuine interest, I would have sworn off interviews and journalism all together. Let us erect a thread as a shine to the killer individuals with insightful questions and creative ways of getting the artist to expose themselves as a wonderful treat to us pathetic voyeuristic fans.

HOW TO DO INTERVIEWS:

Metalion's Slayer Magazine:

Slayer Vol. 7
Q: Can you run and jump at the same time?
Nicke of Nihilist: Never tried.

Slayer Vol. 10
Q: Are you death?
Rokk of Sadistic Execution: NO!

Slayer Vol. 11
Q: When you were kids did your parents force you to make evil snow men?

Demonaz of Immortal: No, actually I started to make them myself. But that was before whiskey was invented, and things started to happen.


HOW NOT TO DO INTERVIEWS:

Anus.com
Q: BEHERIT's dooming sound reminds me of how William Gibson spoke of his post-apocalyptic Neuromancer: it is a horrible world, but you can see yourself wanting to live there, if for nothing else to finish the fight you see characters embarking on. Does this fit in your worldview?

Nuclear Holocausto of Beherit: I like William Gibson.

Q: when people say, "does art emulate life, or life emulate art," do they mean life as human life, or natural life? if so, how could trees/birds/etc. emulate art unless there was a preexisting commonality between art and natural life?

Ildjarn: I don't have a fuckin' idea.

Brutalism.com

Q: Is that the reason you live in MiddleSEX? Or does it say something of your sexual knowledge?
David of Akercocke: Are you fourteen years old?

Let's talk about interviews
Good interviews

Q: Do you communicate with any English musicians? Perhaps, you together drink beer in a pub with Dany Filth from "Cradles" and Aaron from "Brides"?

Rich Walker: I would rather kill these filthy fucking subhumans than drink beer with them. I piss on their bands. I hate both of these idiots, their music is pure shit for gays.

Pure shit for gays just rolls off the tongue and leaves a saccharine aftertaste.

Haha, good stuff. Voices from the Darkside has some good interviews:

What do you think makes a good interview? Aside from a bit of humor and not being a pretentious asshat.

The ability to go from chummy humor to probing questions without being unnecessarily jarring. Asking questions that the artist is not tired of hearing. Asking questions that get creative answers from the artist.

Q: Mithras obviously writes music that is incredibly inspired and passionate, so my question is, what is Mithras (Yours) prime motive for writing music? (VampireGoldfish)

Leon of Mithras: Well thanks for the complement . I write music almost religiously sometimes, in a state that you could maybe describe as a "fervour". I try to get into this state when playing and if I do, consider the rehearsal or show a success! It's really hard to explain but I guess I'm trying to represent an elusive feeling of "oneness" through music, and most of my music is trying to achieve this transcendent state.

Let's face it, most metal interviews (and most metal) are total shit. Either just trying to be too witty or having no idea or guts to ask anything of importance.I think we've probably seen the "hehehe" interviews, the're funny for a few reads but then start to annoy you. Just try to ask at least something important or insightful, no one cares how smart or ironic you are.

The semi arbitrary $47 dollars is the real knee slapper there. I am also fond of the Sodom mention..

Correct me if I err, but didn't Webbinson conduct that interview?
