REVELATION OF DOOM

‘CARRIER’ IS A BEAST OF A RECORD, AND YOU PROBABLY WON’T HEAR MUCH ELSE SO SUFFOCATINGLY HEAVY UNTIL BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS GET AROUND TO RELEASING ITS SUCCESSOR – IF THE BAND DOESN’T SPONTANEOUSLY COMBUST IN THE MEANTIME, THAT IS. THERE IS A TWELVE-MINUTE COVER OF ‘TRIUMPH OF DEATH’ ON IT, OKAY? NOTHING IS EASY OR TAKEN FOR GRANTED WITH THIS BAND AND ‘CARRIER’ LEFT US IN A MESS, SO WE HAD TO GATHER OUR THOUGHTS AND SIT DOWN WITH THEM FOR A SHARP BURST OF Q&A.

BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS

Okay, so the band is now over ten years old and this is your fourth full-length, among many other releases. Does this sound totally crazy, or was this your plan, or at least your intention, all along?

Jan [Wolf, electronics/keyboards]: “There’s no plan behind B.SON in terms of amount of albums, time of existence and the likes. The band is more living from day to day, seeing what each new day brings and what feels right for us. So each album is the process of re-evaluating the current state of the band and condensing the moods, feelings and sometimes tensions into new songs.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

It’s always an interesting proposition to see how a band progresses from working with true, cult indie labels to working with multi-national major labels. How money can transform a pure idea into (potentially) a much bigger entity and consumerbased product; can an idea, a sound, an image transcend into the broader palette without being spoiled from its original form? Or does it really matter at all what label a band is on these days? Do you, the reader and listener, truly care if an artist releases music on an indie or via the corporate bigwig? It is all business, no matter who is controlling the purse strings. Why am I pondering this right now? I guess it’s because our cover stars this month are the mighty Purson. No stranger to these pages, it’s wonderful to see Purson really coming of age on their new album, the major label released ‘Desire’s Magic Theatre’. It’s a great follow-up to their previous, indie released debut and really captures a band who mean business (again). Nothing has changed in that sense regardless of the label behind the band, and frankly, they were always going to end up on a Terrorizer cover because their music rocks and they thoroughly deserve the accolade. We hope you enjoy their latest story as much as we have enjoyed producing it. As always, the rest of this issue has been a joy to create and features some of the best bands in the extreme and underground metal scenes. Never enough pages as I’d like to write about every band myself and the team love, but it’s entirely flash-in-the-pan/fad-free and that’s the main thing, right?! See you next month!
