Quick introductory interview

Interview with Throes.

1. Who are you and how did the band get started?

zel, vocals and programming; Vetr, instruments and additional programming. Old associates with on-and-off ties to local projects (Tzel: ex-Tyranny Enthroned, ex-Dystheist, currently in Teth-Nahash and Vacui; Vetr: ex-Tyranny Enthroned, currently in Stormcaller and Bastard, to name a few.)

2. Why did you choose Doom, and how would you describe your style?

We both have a fondness for the genre, from funeral to Gothic nuances. Originally, we had started doing some recording in the early 2000's, but lost most of the material after several years estranged. Recently, we recently decided to revitalize the effort. Style wise, we aim for the eeriness of blackened doom with the trudging of funeral elements, blending some death-doom touches when aggression is in order.

3. What would you consider to be the high point of your career so far?

Actually releasing a demo after years of not speaking to one another for various reasons and multiple failed recordings. More to come assuming we do not kill each other.

4. Which three bands most influenced you?

Evoken (USA). Tyranny (Finland). Worship (Germany).

5. What are your plans for the near future?

We have several things in mind, including a split opportunity, and the eventual release of a full length. live gigs as we can.

6. If there is anything you would like to add, the last words are yours.

That which does not kill us... eventually will.
