MOTHER COURAGE

WHEN YOU THINK OF BELGIUM, CRUSHING BLACKENED HARDCORE MAY NOT BE THE FIRST THING THAT SPRINGS TO MIND. YET IT IS HERE, BETWEEN THE LAKES AND CASTLES OF GHENT THAT OATHBREAKER DWELL, AND IT IS ALSO HERE WHERE THEY’VE LEARNED TO NOT GIVE A FUCK ABOUT WHAT ANYONE ELSE THINKS OF THEM

In Belgium, when we started nobody cared. We would play hardcore shows and we didn’t fit in there, we would play metal shows and not fit in there. For the music we play, in Belgium the scene isn’t very alive. I like to think that we developed a tough elephant skin over our eight years as a Belgian band by doing all those shows. We’ve never had much local support so everywhere we go we were very much on our own. I think that actually helped a lot to get us to where we are now, because we know we don’t have to care about anything or anyone. It’s just the four of us wanting to do something new. If you are following the set path of one genre then you have just settled for a comfortable way of making music. We’re trying to make every record sound different, it’s not interesting to us to repeat what has been done before. Whatever the idea, if we like it, then we should do it,” explains bassist Gilles Demolder, his defiant philosophy acting as some sort of psychological life raft for the four piece, who waded deep against their own self-doubts to produce their refreshingly unpredictable new album ‘Rheia’.

About Terrorizer Magazine

It’s always a pleasure to feature Darkthrone on the cover of Terrorizer. They are a truly reliable band that not only continue to deliver utterly awesome songs, but fly the flag for the metal underground. New album ‘Artic Thunder’ doesn’t disappoint and we hope you’ll enjoy our cover feature as much as I enjoyed reading it when it landed in my inbox. September is always a time when the music industry recovers from the summer festivals and starts to look forward to closure on the year, and believe it or not, start to think about 2017 and next year’s releases. On the horizon there’s new albums from a newly reformed The Obsessed and Obituary just to whet your appetite already. Next year marks the 30th anniversary of Celtic Frost’s ‘Into The Pandemonium’, so I hope to see some kind of reissue. Noise/Tom G – if you’re reading! In the meantime, the rest of the year will see an awesome line-up at this year’s Damnation Festival in Leeds and a fuck load more releases to look forward to – including amazing albums by Venom Prison, 40 Watt Sun, Lucifer’s Chalice and The Dillinger Escape Plan, to name just a few. I’ve also just finished reading former Cro-Mags bassist Harley Flanagan’s biography which is utterly fantastic. It’s out at the end of this month, we’ll be bringing you an interview next issue...
