Can you comment on your protracted legal battle with your former label Thousand Year Reich?
Cannot speak about specificals, but can say has been epic journey, battling in all sides the swines of record label and avocatul of Rumanian jurisprudence. Yes. And needs of the goats. Tending always the goats. But as it was in the WWII, the Reich will fall. Will be choking on unforgiving phallus of PERSEKUTOR. This is already under progress. Is left only to cross the fingers and stuff garlic in the ears. Is the Rumanian way. Yes.
Had you considered releasing any of the lost Persekutor material under aliases as a contractual loophole?
Nothing is “lost,” only stuck in capitalistic purgatory of Rumanian legal systems. Can use fake name. Yes. But cannot hide all-powerful black metal spirit of PERSEKUTOR. No. Would be obvious to all. Târgu Mureş is small place also. The Reich finding out, sending us to death camp by jury. Not real death camp, but you know meaning. Fake death camp for fake name. Proverb death camp. But death of PERSEKUTOR musics would be real if this happening.
The alternate mix of "I Walk the Path of Hate" on your MySpace page is very revealing. Are there alternate mixes of any of the other songs from Angels of Meth around, or do you have any plans to rerecord those songs?
This all depending on goats. We make time for goat first, PERSEKUTOR after. Have said before to Decibel, but for we, goat is life. No goat, no PERSEKUTOR. Iron Slasher have sold three bass in four year to pay prostitute bill when too many goat die in winter. I maybe tell you not to write this in article but Iron Slasher is not reading Internets, so is okay.
What is it like recording new music without your comrade Kutná Whora behind the drum kit? Have you found another drummer who can possibly fill his shoes?
This very sore subject. Kutná Whora lost lot of money on cock fights back in
Is it true that you and bassist Ion "Iron Slasher" Slăsescu make your living as goat herders in
Yes of course. Since nine year old we tend goat. Is very time consuming profession. Everything take longer than you think. Feed goat, shear goat, milk goat, wait for goat to make a shit. And then eventual slaughter goat. Not enough hour in days for all this. My aunt Viorica, the great Rumanian hammer-thrower, say our goat are coming from Tunisia in early 19 century, but nobody around to remember this of course.
When can we expect the Power Frost EP to be released, and do you have any plans to tour behind it?
Power Frost EP will be ready for releasement this year! Four songs is written, “Power Frost,” “Always The Witchings,” “Winter’s Meat” and “Abominations.” Is possible one more, but not official. Touring depend on goats like everything else. But is possible. Yes. Would like to dominate
