Few questions - black/thrash metal band from Germany - WARLUST.



Few questions - black/thrash metal band from Germany - WARLUST.

Ave, can you introduce your band to our readers? – When was it founded and what style of music do you play , etc.?

Hail, Warlust is a Black Thrash command from Germany and has been formed in 2012. Our mission is to revive the unholy and relentless spirit of metal music. We deliver a raw and aggressive sound marked by morbid and melancholic melodies. The first Demo Tape 'Unholy Attack' was released under the banner of Into Dungeons Records in 2014 (Lim. 200/Sold out). Evil Spell/Undercover Records signed the band in early 2015 to spit out the first Warlust Album 'Morbid Execution' which is released on CD yet.






Where and under what conditions were you recording the new album? Who was in charge of sound, production and mastering?

We recorded the whole album in our rehearsal room with the help from our good friend Olli and a shit load of alcohol.

How many copies were released and which medium was used for this new edition (CD, digital, vinyl, cassette)?

1000 CDs were pressed and are on sale now. In may we will release the vinyl version.

Who is the author of the lyrics and how were they created and about what do the lyrics deal with?

I (Necromancer - Vocals & Guitars) was responsible for most of the songwriting including the lyrics. Our new guitarist Aeon is now involved in the lyrics writing process. I write the lyrics alone and on my own. The lyrics are not that deep, concerning evil & anti religious themes.

Who created the logo of the band, and who took care of the graphics and the website? What about you and social networks? Do you consider these things important?

The logo is by Christoph Breit, the LP artwork is by Karmazid. I manage the Facebook and bandcamp sites. I think it's important to show some presence and to inform the hordes about live shows and stuff like that, but I prefer minimalistic Social Media behavior.





Which label did you choose for releasing your album and why this label? Are you satisfied by how your label represents you and takés care about you?

Evil Spell Records asked us to release our album under their banner. Evil Spell Records is one of the biggest underground labels with that huge underground support. We are satisfied with the cooperation.

Which bands do you idolise and where do you get your inspiration?

We idolise many bands of very different styles. Concerning Warlust the most important bands are old-school Sepultura, Possessed, Deströyer 666, Dissection, Slayer, Aura Noir, Immortal,...

Did you send your record to some Labels - which are the labels? How was the response?

No we did not.

How many gigs have you played? Which type of gigs do you prefer, whether it's (clubs or festivals) and which of your performances would you consider as the best?

We played several live shows since 2014. Last two weekends we played the Taunus Metal Festival and the Raging Death Date. These were our first festival gigs ever. It was great for sure, but I think we are a band made for smaller clubs with dark, morbid and violent atmospheres.

What about your plans for the future? What do you want to achieve with the band? 

We want to play live and finish a new album.
