Volcano Chaos

Has been month since last postings but cannot blame on goats. No. Protestings in Bucharest for labor days marchings is one thing. And then total depression in camp of PERSEKUTOR. Special guest session drummer for Power Frost EP not making plane due to massive volcano chaos. Flyings cancelled, cannot schedulize again for many month. Major setting of back. Smokification of black markets cigarette to calm nervings. Much better than Rumanian brand. Yes. But polis on crackdown for illegal smokers. Fines for all, very expensive. Much hassle. Yes. Listenings to Immortal Sons Of Northern Darkness for better feelings and also for riffification inspirationings. Writing song for denouncification of Iceland and lava and mountain nobody is pronouncing. Will be "explosive."

Decibel Interviewings

Recent did interviewings from Nick Green for Deciblog of US and A friends Decibel magazine, longtime PERSEKUTOR supporters from five years. Reprint permission fullmost granting. Yes. Photografication by Daciana Birladeanu.

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 Bucharest days, join Jandarmeria Română three year ago. Is making recordination difficult for we. Yes. Good drum machine not easy to locate in Târgu Mureş. We have one drummer for rehearsalmentation session claiming is grandson of Zamfir. Must be grandson of mistress, we say. Zamfir having no official grandson. This well known in Rumania. But he insist, waiting for test of blut. Iron Slasher think he is light-skin gypsy. But will have special guest drummer for Power Frost EP. Not Tony Laureano, too expensive.

Is it true that you and bassist Ion "Iron Slasher" Slăsescu
make your living as goat herders in Romania?

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 Russia and US and A most. This have very much significance for PERSEKUTOR, to bring the superpowers to the knees, give them black metal in the face. Yes.

Time Of Hammer

Every days is sniffing closer of victory. Every days is getting stronger in arm and more steel of phallus. PERSEKUTOR is ready to dominates. Is only for Rumanian jurisprudence to declaring of triumphant. Court house session today was like needles in eyeball pushing slow to brain. Clowns from Reich bullshitting for hours. Lies and lies and lies only. Yes. But then Iron Slasher saving day with crucial testification, make clowns look as criminals! Is what they are of course. (One days, PERSEKUTOR will dominate them from behind, no mercy will be had.) But maybe too many believe lies, think is facts. Difficult ... very difficult for wonderings. Is all over now, we wait for juries for deciding. Is time for consultingment of stars and drinkification of Silva Dark, ponder great mysteries of ancients. Then thinking of Ramona Badescu, maybe hammer one out. Yes.

Blut Sabbath

With completings of Equinox Spring come slaughter of goat as promised. Yes. Was quickly and painless for fat friend of we. Holding him strongly I am saying invokation, Iron Slasher cutting the throat. Invokation is ancient Rumanian tradition for prosperification and hoping meat is cook tender and not burning like last year when Uncle Vali getting drunk and dropping carcass in fire, forgetting about. Hour later, black all over. Eating pizza from shop of Uncle Vali instead. Maybe he do under purpose to make moneys, but is mystery still. Yes. This time PERSEKUTOR in command of goat roast. Delicious is everywhere. Feasting very large on the Sunday in the Valea Rece with fullmost quantity of Silva and Rumanian wine. Someone play Bartók Béla CD on booming box for folking dance. (Then Haiducii CD, nobody is escaping it.) Iron Slasher get shitting of face, do penis trick for young girls. Everybody laughing at that one excepting father of young girls. Yes.
