EOG: Hailsa! Svartr Sturm is a relatively unknown NSBM one-man band that will surely make his mark real soon, for the sake of our readers, can you give us a brief history of your band?
S: Hailsa! I’ve started my project Svartr Sturm in beginning of 2008 during winter. I never really enjoyed or wanted to play with other people or band before so I finally got a program to work with. I knew where i was going. This, Svartr Sturm, was growing for years in my heart.
EOG: You recently released your first album ”Radikal View for a Better Day”, can you tell us how the process went with the composing/recording? What does that album represent to you?
S: I’ve started to record the album with basic material. It came out exactly as I wanted to, cold & hateful. Then, the rest came by itself, it took 5 months of free time (working full time) to record it. This album means a lot to me, more than words can express.
EOG: That album got released through Oldenblood Productions, how did you came out to work with that label? Is the way it was done satisfactory?
S: When the recording was done, I was seeking for a label to release the first album. Got turned down by some, until I found Oldenblood Productions who was looking for bands, we got in contact and it went pretty fast from there. He took care of the productions and the promo. I am more than satisfied and pleased with all his help and support.
EOG: As it was said earlier, Svartr Sturm is a NSBM band, what do you think of the whole NSBM scene? Any bands that can be deemed as great influences to you?
S: When I first got into black metal I was influenced by bands like Darkthrone (early), Burzum, Bathory, Marduk etc… I already had a NS background these days but was more into anti-christianity. My ideology got more and more radikal every year. I knew that in NSBM there is no place for j*w*sh loving whores. I knew where I belong. At side with my comrades.
EOG: Do you think NSBM is the best way to express your ideas?
S: Indeed, NSBM is the best way to express myself. I’m always filled with pride as I remember the great German struggle. Their sacrifice for our race, our nation, their will to crush our enemies. We have to raise high the banner that sometimes ago they lifted out of nothingness.
EOG: You recently joined the Vinland Front if I’m correct, how did you came accross that movement? What do you think about the other bands involved?
S: Since the first time I’ve heard about the VF, I found the idea really brilliant and more than needed. They have contacted me to know if I was interested to join the movement. I was more than glad to be apart of the VF. United with some of the most radikal black metal bands in Vinland.
EOG: What’s next for Svartr Sturm? Any future plans?
S: Well, I am already working on new songs for a second album next year.
EOG: Thanks for your time! the end is all yours.
S: 14/88 Stay Strong!
