Interview with amazing Legions of Crows (black, doom) UK

Январь 10th, 2014 by resurgam


Please a short bio for your band.

I started writing the material in 2008 and recorded the demos with Herod in 2009…The Revelator joined in 2010 to add some lyrics and vocals and we continued writing and recording for the album until 2011. We struck the deal with Funeral Rain Records and released the album in late 2011. Herod has now left and been replaced on guitar by Squeeler Jake – a fine Doom Metal Artisan.

Where do you have the name Legions of Crows from…?

It was a line from a song that I wrote ages ago about Journalists and seemed just right for this band.

Tell about some of the influences, outside of music, that influence your song writing?

Lots of stuff – Politics, The World situation, misanthropy and Religion, drugs and alcohol!

When you write a song, do you use a specific method/structure or do you guys just jam around and take a piece of that, and an other piece of something else…?

There is no set structure but I generally have a theme or riff idea and expand on that. The Revelator has a lot of un used lyrics that have provided inspiration as well.

How do you guys write lyrics?

Randomly! Mine come from being pissed off with something I read or something that happens…just life experiences really.

How would you describe your music to a person that never heard it? Do you direct your music to certain people?

I’d describe it as experimental Doom with a Black Metal Heart – we don’t aim it at anyone in particular just anyone into heavy shit!

What is still your biggest dream as a musician? If you have one…

We’d like to get paid…

Say something about the future plans

Apart from getting paid, we are writing for the next album which will be different to Stab Me and more experimental, but still heavy as Hell.

With which bands do you have close contact? Do you feel as a part of a special “scene”?

I talk to a few bands like Throne of Malediction, Old Corpse Road, Plaag and Vrangsinn but we don’t find ourselves being massive scenesters in any way. We support and are happy to be a part of the Underground.
