Interview: Know Your Nemesis

An interview with Know Your Nemesis, metal band from Norway.


Greetings guys. Introduce Know Your Nemesis.
Hi Carla. We are four guys from the deep woods of Norway with a great passion for music and metal. We have been around for the last 7 years making songs and having a great time.

You signed a deal with the Italian label WormHoleDeath, how have you got in touch with the label?
We actually got in touch with them through the producer of our album. He found us and wanted to work with us and put us in touch with WormHoleDeath. They wanted to hear more from us, so we sent them some songs and they enjoyed them I guess, ‘cause here we are today with a record deal and an album released.

….and signing this deal, you have released your debut album under the name of ”Break The Chain”. How the recordings went so far?
During the process of recording the album we actually hit a few setbacks. 6 months before going to Italy to start recording, our drummer and bass player quit, so we were in a bit of a hurry to find someone to replace them, but luckilly both Birk and Ole Kristian are awesome musicians and great guys so that went really well. Also at the finishing stages of the recording the studio suffered from a power outage, so we missed almost two whole days in the studio, but with a couple of creative producers we got to record anyway, and we are very happy with how the album turned out.

Know Your Nemesis ”End of Me” video

Norwegian metal band Know Your Nemesis  released a video for the song ”End of Me” taken from the upcoming album ”Break The Chain”.

Know Your Nemesis statement about the video:
While we wait for our upcoming album release, we have decided to show you another tune. This song is called End of Me, and it’s the first one we wrote for the album, so it has a lot of sentimental value to us. Marius even has the opening lick tattooed on his arm! This time we wanted to give you something with a little more meat, so instead of just a lyric video we filmed a playthrough during one of our rehersals. So we played around with a GoPro camera and the result was even better than what we hoped for.  We hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did, and we can’t wait to show you the rest of the album.”

Know Your Nemesis signed with WormHoleDeath records

A new signing deal with the Italian record label WormHoleDeath comes from the Norwegian metal band Know Your Nemesis.  The band will release the new album ”Break The Chain”.

Interview: Wolves Like Us

An interview with Espen, the guitarist of the Norwegian Dark rock band, Wolves Like Us.

By Carla Morton


Hej Espen, how things are going?
Hi, things are going fine

Tell me about Wolves Like Us, a little history when the band was formed.
Wolves Like Us started back in march 2010, when Jonas (drums) approached Lars (singer guitarist) about starting a band. The two of them worked at the same club at that time and liked each others previous bands. Me and Toy (bass) had been In a band with Lars for many years already, so they wanted us to join.

Let’s talk about releases, which is the debut album?
Our debut album, “Late Love”, was recorded in January 2011 and released in June the same year. It consist of 9 original songs + a cover of The Afghan Whigs My Enemy. Four songs of this album were recorded as demos from spring 2010 and that demo got us a record deal with Prosthetic Records. Videos, (find them on youtube) were made for “Deathless, Gone To Dust and Secret Handshake” songs.

“Black Soul Choir” was released last year, what can you tell about this also?
BSC was recorded in spring 2013 and came out in February 2014. It`s more sludgy, maybe a bit more heavy and epic than “Late Love”. That’s what we think at least. Videos were made for Ì Don’t Need To Be Forgiven and Three Poisons.

Who use to write the music in the band?
Lars write all the lyrics and melodies and we all contribute for the riffs and ideas for the songs.

Did you start writing new materials for a future release?
Yes, we are making demos as I answer these question. Behold 2016.

What about the band’s influences?
Well, we all grew up with indierock, punk and metal, so I guess all those genres inspires us. 80`s synthpop bands like Depeche Mode and Duran Duran has always been favorites. But to name a few bands: The Afghan Whigs, Planes Mistaken For Stars, Hot Water Music, Leatherface, Quicksand.

Any lyrical themes?
I guess you have to ask Lars that question. All I can say is that it`s quite dark.

What about concerts, are there any confirmed?
We just did a four date tour with Torche in Norway, but nothing more is confirmed at the moment.

What other plans o you have with Wolves Like Us?
We wanna tour the US and more of the eastern European countries.

What message do you have for the people who support the band?
Rock your socks off!! And support your local record dealer.

Takk Espen, all the best! Cheers!
Thank you!
