Here’s a chance for you to tell our readers about your new self titled album: "Vornth".
But could you please start off by introducing the readers to the band?
Vornth – We are Vornth!
Could you please give us some info on the album: Where did you record the album
and who has produced and mixed it?
Vornth – “Vornth” was recorded in Studio Fabriken by our friend and fifth
member Michael Thorén in May 2012. Michael is a professional producer since the
70´s and he does all kinds of music, big and small artists. –But he has his
heart in the cauldron of “Pure Thrashng Speed Metal”…hehe We produced and mixed
it together with him. We play very complex music and cannot work with wimps. It
was recorded in four days with vocals and everything.
And now onto your new album track-by-track, what inspired you, and what do what
to express with this song etc. –
Vornth – Stainless steel melts at 2740 celsius. It symbolizes a birth of
something new. - The birth of this record on your plate. It is to involve the
listener more into the record. The ravens were recorded outside my window. It
represents our hometown Uddevalla. – Also the wind…
Vornth – A vow to ourselves to live life at its fullest. – As destructors of the
order and liars. It is written by Erik and Erik together in 2008, we pushed it
as over the top as we could. It is meant to feel like you are on one side of a
fist. – Choose your side!
Vornth – Written in 2004. -The lack of dignity in humanity always pisses me off!
This song is about the world burning. - We flee like rats and never think that
there is nothing to return to, one could easy blame the “God-gene”! hrrm hrrm
Rip Rip Rip
Vornth – Written in 2003. Same theme as Rapid Death, but also about lobotomy of
youths that take place all over the world. – Stuff them full with drugs and then
they are ready to become adults? Without never gotten a chance to gather
experience on their own? If you have a profile on the internet is that who you
are? – I vote against!
Vornth – Written in 2005. It deals with a serial killer. I play the killer and
on some parts the teller. This serial killer makes the victims come to him, and
he makes them wanting him to kill them. He looks after them and they grow to
love him as their fate. The man hates himself but he is too addicted to the rush
to commit suicide. – I know many writes about the topic, but I have an interest
in criminology. I tried it to sort of making it a film with differences in
harmonies and mood.
Spit Black Fire
Vornth – Written in 2006. It is about not being ashamed over whom and what you
are and what you believe and to express it! – Silence is for wimps and soulless collectualls.
Vornth – Written in 2009 I think. I only remember waking up with a ghost light
leaving the room. I picked up the guitar and played it. – Totally sober. –I have
never been so sober…
Vornth – Written by Erik and Me in 2008. Again he wrote the first part and I
picked up an old part of a song I wrote in 2001 and put them together. I think
this song shows something that many bands and their critics are lacking, namely
talent and balls! It is about a young man trying to do his best and to develop a
path to do what he truthfully loves. – Hearing how fucking useless he is, he
never listens. He finds the path.
Written in 2008. It is about a new better and superior mankind arrives on earth
and welds the old one in a tank with water. As a sacrifice to their gods, the
circle starts to close once again...
Written in 2005. It is about an axe and a murderer and a combination.
11. Death's Horse
Vornth – Written in 2001 and 2010. The title came about since it is a galloping
riff. It is a song about fate and justice. – To often choose not to listen to
idiots. – Can you accept a fate, yourself have created?
12. Grave of the Living
Vornth – Written in 2011. It is about people that live with a shadow of fear and
control. So they accept the lesser, the standard and the shortcuts in life. They
are many, and shortcuts are smaller, they get stuffed and suffocate on their
each other’s farts. Hirr hirr hirr
Tell us a bit about the artwork – who made it etc. and how important do you feel
it is to have a cool artwork?
Vornth – A man from Mexico called Jo. I don’t know the last name because I can’t
read it. I bought the painting some years back. When I saw it I knew it would be
the cover of our album. It shows a sacrifice and a birth. One the back of the
record the triangles symbolizes the womb. The layout was made by Luca Marchetti
of Iron Tyrant Records. “Cool artwork” is quite important I guess, since the
cover is a window between the creator and the buyer/listener. -Maybe more in
sub-genres, where the true art is created.
–Who the fuck cares about One direction and their covers (which they haven’t
chosen themselves) that is over 15 years old?
Any last words you want to round this interview off with?
Vornth – Spit Black Fire!!
