Obviously so. Let's face it, those first two albums + demos are amateurish, sloppy crappola German bm that nobody would have ever given two shits about were it not for the band members' highly heroic & aryan slaughter of a 100 lbs pre-teen. Not to mention that pathetic "EURONYMOUS WANTED TO SIGN US!!1!1" desperate tryhard publicity stunt that no one ever bought anyway, sure the dwarf might have replied their fan letters once or twice but that doesn't imply he actually liked that worthless junk of a Thuringian Rubbish demo (though he might have claimed he enjoyed it just like he did with virtually every band contacted him -we all know honesty wasn't exactly the guy's main strength).

Totenlieder and Blutgericht are a completely different issue though: solid and properly performed metal that ranks among the best releases to ever come from that shithole of Turks and gay activists commonly referred to as "Germany". It's kind of odd that such excellent albums are regularly ignored -or at least less frequently mentioned- by the fanboys of this band as they're clearly much better than Facta/Asgradsreich -or whatever that pile of crap is called.

I think Absurd's output is talentless shit all the way through their entire discography and that's almost an accomplishment considering how different the albums sound from each other!

It's the Supreme Art re-issue. Bonus track, not as a part of the regular album. No idea why it was only on this release, I think it's a great track.

Saw Absurd in 2008 in Belgium with Der Stürmer (both great gigs), but didn't know too much of their music. Now, I finally checked out some more stuff and from what I heard I seem to mostly like Facta Loquuntur (even if only for Pesttanz!) and Totenlieder.

I only hail them when they were murderers. Hendrik and Sebastian are the only members who should be in this band. Not this cover line-up they have nowadays. Bring back the killers!

I can't find that (Wolfsmond)-interview with him anymore, where he spoke about his change of heart/mind... Afaik, he's now preaching this wannabe-nihilism/misanthropy of "hating all humans equally" blabla. Quite a disappointment, I'd say. But makes him fit and proper for the company of his metalbrother-friends, I may add.


What´s the problem ? As long as he doesn´t hop hand in hand with Wolf Rüdiger Mühlmann and scum like this through the meadows...

Why not let him do as he pleases ? He still seems to make great Black Metal like with Wolfsmond. If he doesn´t feel like propagating that he´s the hardest Ns-shark in the world he just doesn´t fell it, so what ?


Quote:
A While ago I received mail from Schatten from Wolfsmond, who not only had some remarks about the review of the (excellent) Wolfsmond album ?Des Düsterwaldes Reigen?, but mostly about the comment that Wolfsmond was an NSBM act. In stead of hatemail, a conversation grew in which Schatten proved to be a person well worth talking/mailing to.
At a moment I wrote to him that many sources on the web and elsewhere pointed towards the NSBM-corner, and that perhaps a good way to get rid off that was doing interviews, so that people could read it from the musicians themselves in stead of gossiping old ladies and prejudiced journalists. With Schatten I had an interview about his past, present and views, which is well worth reading to all those who care about paganism, music and people thinking for themselves. Enjoy it!

A personal note from Schatten himself: Keep in mind: First of all, these are my points of view. So the answers I give reflect my attitudes. Although we are one band and we know the thoughts of each other, I only speak for myself!

It took me some research to find out more about Wolfsmond; every piece of info I could find describes the band as NSBM. Labels/distributors that claim to release NSBM like ?Blut und Eisen? and ?Vinland Winds? strengthen those impressions. Yet you very strongly mailed me that Wolfsmond was not NSBM, so? How did you wind up at those sites: is it because those are the only ones to support you, and others wish to stay away from you and Wolfsmond? Or is it something a band does not control?
Schatten: ?For sure one reason is my past ? many people who hear about Wolfsmond guess it must be NSBM because I have been into this some time ago. It seems as if they were not able to use their brains; when you look at our answers given in interviews and when you look at our lyrics you?ll find out that there is no relation to any political idea at all. (By the way, I don?t see ?Blut & Eisen? as a NSBM label ...) The question is: what does a band make part of the NSBM scene? Taking a look to the Resistance Records site it seems as if they don?t know any other kind of Black Metal. But Wolfsmond have never been using NS phrases in the lyrics and we also gave no political statements.?

Apart from that, there is always the strong link with Absurd because you were in it, and Unhold. Absurd is a band with a certain reputation so to say. The tributes have also been praised as NSBM?
Schatten: ?I know that tributes have been praised as NSBM ? at the time of ?Asgardsrei? I still have been in touch with NS ideology so I cannot wonder why tributes were paid by NSBM bands. Nevertheless, this is the past and not the present; ignoring this means ignoring my personal development. I don?t know why Absurd today are still seen as NSBM ? maybe they don?t care at all. But as far as I know they don?t use NS phrases in their lyrics or something like this ? So, could Unhold be called ?Nazi? because he is playing in a band that has been somehow near to NS in the past? Anyway, since I started my studies in Political Science, I recognized that politics are always the same, not depending of what color they are.?
On the other hand; it is quite easy to accuse a German black metal band, due to something that happened over 60 years ago. After all, when it comes down to bands singing in other Germanic languages, like Norwegian or Dutch for instance, people will not make that accusation that fast. I can even recall a demo from German Allvaters Zorn on which they felt that they had to claim on the cover that Allvaters Zorn does not play NSBM; a kind of reversed burden of proof so to say? Is it perhaps a sign of biased press: anything black metal, typical German and dealing with pagan subjects must be NSBM?
Schatten: ?It is (in my opinion) very easy to accuse a band playing NSBM (or another kind of NS music ? I think of Weissglut for instance). A German band that uses to sing in its own language and that doesn?t use each opportunity to point out how anti-NS the musicians are is really endangered to be accused that way. Those people who see the heathen/pagan heritage of Europe as something that belongs to NS (maybe even without the ancient roots) have neither understood heathendom, nor National Socialism. This (NS) is no invention of Hitler (or those men who paved the way for him) as well as it is no invention of Mussolini. Looking back in history we must accept that NS has ever been there since the beginning of political communities, the beginning of states. Of course it was the time of the 3rd Reich which gave the term ?NS? its sinister, almost brutal sound. But NS means nothing more than a kind of Socialism that is limited to the people of one nation and therefore it is the basis for setting this nation above the others ? with the right to exploit, enslave and even destroy those others. When the Nazis wanted to be sure their Reich would work (and not fail) it was quite necessary that they could reach the soul (the collective subconscious) of the German people. The archetypes (not too long gone) were our Gods, which means the Gods of our ancestors, grown with the people over thousands of years and therefore an immense part of the soul. What the Nazis did was the most simple as well as most genius way (because it was the most effective) to ablaze the minds of millions. I see it even as a kind of duty to call upon the ancient soul of the Germans ? WITHOUT all the political nonsense. I deny apologizing for my belief ? there?s nothing mean, ugly or dirty on it! ?

After a lot of research I come across a book from Steven King called Wolfsmond, and a band by Jochen Peters that released an album called ?Radio Rock ?n Roll?. It means that people can?t find shit if they search for an interview with you. Is that perhaps why so many people, including me, have misunderstood Wolfsmond?
Schatten: ?Wolfsmond have released the first official demo in 1995; I guess at that time Stephen King still never knew he would create his novel ?Wolfsmond? one day ? Yes, it is a pity with the German Rock ?n Roll band Wolfsmond, but we did not know that they existed when we chose this name. It was after a few releases when we read of them, but at that time it was too late to change our name ? so we decided to go on with it because (as I know) the other Wolfsmond doesn?t exist no more, and I guess there is no danger of mistaking us for a Rock ?n Roll band.
We have not answered so many interviews yet, so you can?t find that much in the www. Some guys seem to be much into sensation seeking so a lot of rumors occurred during the years. At this point: a big FUCK YOU to all those who don?t know the truth and who don?t try to find it out but create ?cool? stories because it sells.?
It?s a typical example of human behavior; if you can?t find anything, just come up with the most sensational stories.. After all, who is there to deny them?
Schatten: ?Who should? I don?t hang around before the computer to search the web for new stories. So, I?m sometimes the last to hear of them. Even if I would care more for it ? I guess it would cost really much breath to fight all the lies and the shit. In my opinion, it is more important to play the music I ever wanted to play and to show with our lyrics (and interviews) that those false people just suck ? Hehe, what do you think: for whom is the Düsterwald waiting??
Personally speaking about the use of ancient Germanic mythology (like Managarm, which actually means Moondog), I think it is bullshit to link that immediately to fascism or Nazism. The nazis stole symbols of those tribes, yet their ideology comes from the Roman empire. The name comes from the fasces, a symbolic axe used by Roman judges. And one reason that those Germanic tribes had so many kings, was the fact that kings are supposed to fight at the front, something I don?t see nazi-leaders doing. Yet how long do you will it think until journalists open their eyes and see the difference between ancient mythology and recent history?
Schatten: ?I think journalists will NEVER open their eyes. When I tell people that I celebrate Jul (for instance) their first reaction is ?but this is a Nazi festivity!? so I just sigh and turn around. In German schools, in public life, on TV, everywhere is a propaganda machine working; not only against NS but especially against the re-discovering of the great epochs of German (or Germanic) history. I don?t know exactly who it is but it seems as if they would fear a (re-)strengthening of an elder European conscious ? (No, I?m not paranoid but realist!)?.

The band(s)

Wolfsmond

Some sources on the internet (and elsewhere) say that Wolfsmond is a side-project of Absurd members. Strange as it may sound, I see it as a band in its own, that happens to have some ex-members of Absurd in the line-up? What is the truth?
Schatten: ?Wolfsmond is definitely NO side-project of any other band. Wolfsmond IS a band in its own. Any band that would call me part of it had then an ex-member of Absurd in the line-up. Concerning Unhold ?he plays in about thousand bands at that time (maybe he is a reincarnation of a bunch of great composers at once), but none says Wolfsmond was a side-project of Hellfucked or so.?
You clearly state that German(ic) mythology has a strong impact on you personally and your music: what musical elements (not lyrical) would never be part of Wolfsmond?s music if these roots had not been there?
Schatten: ?Maybe Wolfsmond would not be using clear vocal parts; there are also some riffs which derive from ?mythological inspiration? but probably nobody else will hear this because it is impossible for someone outside the band to follow along the process of composing a song beginning with the first idea to the final result. By the way, it is always difficult to describe what something (our music) would be WITHOUT some special influences ? I can?t imagine my musical work without those concepts, ideas, believes (and so on) which are part of my life since my early youth (so, for many years now).?

In contradiction to many other bands influenced by the pagan inheritance Wolfsmond does not refer to the Asen and other deities from the past; your lyrics are generally about cold, death and nature. Is it a deliberate choice to to write lyrics about the old sagas?
Schatten: ?We have been recording a song called ?Die Wilde Jagd? (The Wild Hunt) for a sampler that has not been released yet in which (as you might see by the name) we sing from the Wild Hunt storming across the land in the night of Yul, lead by the One Eyed Father. Nevertheless, we invoke only the aspect of storm (or wind), rage and the army of the dead ? We are Wolfsmond which means that we accept and honour the dark and sinister parts within us ? our own shadows. While walking the woods by day, I feel of course very close to the ancient Gods, I feel their presence, their goodness. Walking the same woods by night, there seem to be other beings which rule in darkness. And when you have ever seen the shadows move through the forest while the trees were whispering and the moon was showing ways which had never been existing, then you will know for sure why we sing about cold, death and nature. As long as we still see the dark aspects of nature as ?evil? or ?threatening? we won?t be able to find back to nature, to our origin. According to Wotan who is the God of wisdom, arts and goodness but also the God of storm, death and destruction there is Hel (the goddess of death and the underworld) who represents nature for me: one side of her face is bright and beautiful, like a young woman full of love and grace ? the other side is dark, old and rotten, showing that everything that is must decay once.?
Going on about the subject: what inspires Wolfsmond about those ancient pagan subjects: romanticism, roots or something else?
Schatten: ?We feel a deep relation to the ancient Nordic mythology, to our ancient Gods and legends. We even feel our roots ? we feel the strong chain between the pre-christian past and our lives today. Those pagan subjects derive from the intense feelings to be part of that which was and still lives on in our times. When I think of the places which even today wear the ancient names (don?t forget Holland and its etymologic relation to Hel) and the power I can feel there, I know where I come from.?

A lot of fellow underground musicians from the German underground scene mention ?Des Düsterwaldes Reigen? as one of their current favorites in interviews; that must be some kind of support to you. What does it mean to Wolfsmond when fellow musicians mention you so explicitly?
Schatten: ?Of course we feel honored by this ? but that?s all. For us it is much more important to play the music WE like to play and not music for the pleasure of others. The danger when other musicians mention you so explicitly is that you could start thinking about how the next release should be that perhaps more people like it. This must never happen; we will be true in playing our kind of metal until the end.?
The debut was a fine mix between black and doom (I mentioned Manowar?s ?Defender? I know); where does the doom influence come from: something that started your life in metal or another reason?
Schatten: ?I?m very fascinated by Doom Metal because it is (on one hand) the art of playing very slowly; on the other hand it allows metal maniacs to express even those feelings like sadness, the imagination of being forlorn ? and a kind of religious dispute. But it is still METAL with all its attributes. Doom Metal is something like the last grey light of day in late November when you walk the border between forest and field, in the distance there is a little village with no light put on, all the leaves are brown, there is a great emptiness and cold around you, it?s a bit misty, frosty, maybe it?s going to rain later that evening ? and a lonesome dog is barking. Doom Metal is something like ?Slow Death?, a new sharpened, rusty knife in the hours after midnight when all the warmth has ceased and you know there will be no tomorrow ? while (to compare it) Black Metal is a broadsword in the right, a battle axe in the left, and the knowledge you?re already dead ? one of the dead horsemen, one of the shadows which follow Odin on his Wild Hunt during the icy nights of December.?

At the moment I am also listening to Riger?s ?Gjallar?. To be honest, that album is, though called Heathen German metal, way less authentic (and impressive) than ?Des Düsterwaldes Regen?. Where as ?Gjallar? is more of a combination of genres with only pagan elements, Wolfsmond is way more German than Riger. Is it fair to state that your interest in ancient history and roots gives Wolfsmond that extra thing, the difference between surface and innerself so to say?
Schatten: ?This is only one part of our work. It is in my opinion necessary but still not enough to give Wolfsmond ?that extra thing?; when we started playing we decided (each one for himself) that we wanted to play exactly the music we want to listen to. Therefore we don?t say ?this album must be aggressive? or ?it must sound more black metallic? or so. Everything like that is shit and won?t do anything else but fail. Music will be absolutely authentic when the band members play from their hearts and not to serve an image. And finally it had taken some time until Wolfsmond found together in the line-up of today. Maybe we would never have been on this way without our interest in ancient history, roots and nature.?

Absurd

Schatten; You told me that Absurd was your past, so that means you are out of the band? First of all, why did you leave the band?
Schatten: ?At the end of the 1990s, the differences between Hendrik (JF Nidhoegg) and me grew stronger. Thinking of the ?Asgardsrei? album I feel much anger; it was the worst piece of music I ever made, much worse than our demos. According to this, the process of development inside me had already begun, and when Hendrik had left Europe I felt no necessity to go on with a band which still consisted of myself and with which I could no longer identify. Absurd had become something I didn?t want to be part of.?
What was your best lesson from that period?
Schatten: ?Start listening to your heart ? stop listening to those who tell you how great you are and that everything you do is great. Whatever I do: it must not be something to which I can?t say ?Yes? with my whole heart.?
Do you know whether they still exist?
Schatten: ?Yes, Absurd are still playing ? without me.?
I don?t want to bring up the Sandro Beyer-matter all over again, as it has happened and the sentence has been served? But as a result of all that has happened since, what are your biggest lessons and how do they influence Wolfsmond and its music. I can?t imagine an experience like that has no influence whatsoever on a person?s life?
Schatten: ?Of course it has been influencing my life and still does. I?m unable to explain how it does; the beginning of my own process of spiritual development derives from it, I think, as you may see in my lyrics and how they have been changing over the years.?

Side projects
During research I came across a demo by Veinellis from 2003 called ? Weg in die Vergessenheit? and an album ?In This Forest Shall Be My Gallows? ; is that another project of Wolfsmond Managarm; there are quite a lot of Managarm/Manegarm names in (black) metal?
Schatten: ?The name Managarm seems to be used very often; Wolfsmond?s Managarm was (as far as I know) the first who used that name. The projects you mentioned are no projects of him; he is guitarist/singer of Wolfsmond, has been of Heldentum and plays a real evil guitar for Eternity.?
Speaking of side projects: are you still active in Halgadom? ? Sein und Werden? should come out this year I?ve read on Darkness Inside, and unlike the second album, you will also do some vocals again?
Schatten: ?I did all the vocals on the metal part of ?Sein & Werden?; for Halgadom I?m just the singer so I didn?t compose melodies for that project. I know Halgadom is called NSBM (as well - John) but the lyrics are (in my opinion) apolitical ? I?m not NS, but I like the music of Halgadom.?
For Halgadom, live performances are not an option, so there is no conflict between the two bands regarding that? Is doing live shows an option for Wolfsmond?
Schatten: ?This is difficult because the members of Wolfsmond are living in a bigger distance away from each other so we can?t play that often together. Nevertheless, we would like to play live one day (but still do not know when).?

The upcoming album

On ?Des Düsterwaldes Regen? you experienced with two vocalists: you and Managarm. I must say it is a great idea, not used by too many black metal bands. Is it a concept that will be worked out more on the coming album?
Schatten: ?We have been listening very often to ?Des Düsterwaldes Reigen? in the past two years, and now we know what we can make even better. You?re right ? our concept of working with two singers was to be worked out consequently on the coming album. Now some weeks have passed since we have been in studio. While recording our vocals we found out that on most songs one voice only fits much better than two voices. So we have the effect that mostly only one of us (two singers) is singing ... But we are already planning the next release because some songs (i.e. "Rising In Doom") were much too long for this release so we will (probably) do them next year - and on that forthcoming release there are many parts on which "double singing" is necessary (it is a strong contrast to our impressions concerning the "Tollwut" album).

At the moment you have just finished the recording of the second full length album: when will it be released?
Schatten: ?It depends ? Maybe it will be released still in December but I can?t promise.?
You mailed me that the next release will not be on Nebelfee Klangwerke: is it already known through which label(s) it will be released/distributed?
Schatten: ?As we have planned, the vinyl will appear on Blut & Eisen, the CD will appear on WTC productions.?

Any tracklist that you can already tell us?
Schatten: ?Musicians sometimes have the problem that even song titles may change while the songs are recorded; some names are ?Knochenkult?, ?Das Opfermahl?, ?Tollwut?, ?Eisenherz?, ?Mondsüchtig?, ?Rauhreif?? We will see which ?running order? will be the best for the album, finally there are nine songs on it.?
From your last mail I understood that the title will be ?Tollwut?; perhaps it can best be described as ?Great Anger?; is it a working title or will it be the definitive title?
Schatten: ?Tollwut? will be the definitive title of the album. For a better understanding: Tollwut is not just great anger but precisely a disease. It is ?rabies? in English; animals sometimes suffer by Tollwut. They eat something wrong (contaminated meat) or are bitten by ?contaminated? animals. After a while they show a grotesque mixture between very friendly and very aggressive, biting everything around them, having foam before the mouth. At the end, they die slowly and painful. Also humans can be infected with it but fox and wolf are the creatures which are predestinated for this disease because they are carnivorous animals.?

Judging on the previous album regarding the music, anger is a substantial part of Wolfsmond music. Is that because of fascination or as an outlet for your personal (and others from he band) anger?
Schatten: ?It is both, the fascination and something like an outlet. When reading the ?Edda? you often find descriptions of war and violence. We were also very fascinated by the detailed description of ancient and gruesome trees and woods in ?The Lord of the Rings? ? on those pages we found many relations between these descriptions and our own experiences (as stated above). And of course we channel our personal rage (I guess this word fits better than ?anger?) into our music and our lyrics. ?
You just said that the two voices concept did not work out satisfactory: ?Tollwut? did not fit into that concept. Does that mean that the coming album will be aggressive?
Schatten: ?When we started recording ?Tollwut? we first had to face that it would become much too long (we all love vinyl so we must stay in ?vinyl time?) with all those songs. Then we decided to select which songs were infected by Tollwut and which not. Now, ?Tollwut? is an album which is (in my personal opinion) much more aggressive than ?Des Düsterwaldes Reigen?.

The songs that did not make it to that album are already scheduled for another album: why not make an album with two faces, such as Therion and Ayreon did (though completely a different genre that yours), or is that impossible due to the financial reserves/limitations that less selling bands/lesser known acts have?
Schatten: ?We don?t care much for limitations but always try to make our ideas work. A two faced album would have been interesting but then it would have been a double album. In some points we are a bit old-fashioned: a double album should only be done as a ?Best of ??, a live album or the final release ever. ?Tollwut? has many different faces as you will hear soon it is not only a ?fast forward machine? but has also slower passages (which are not less aggressive). We decided to release the other songs on an album which will be much more into Doom Metal because the songs create a special atmosphere which would have been struggling with the atmosphere of ?Tollwut?.

Personally, I hope that this has given our readers some good information of what Wolfsmond is all about, and a chance to get done with prejudices. Wolfsmond is indeed not political, so certainly no NS(BM), just great metal and I hope that ?Tollwut? will be released soon to convince you all. Happy Yul to all of you! Thank you Schatten for taking so much time and effort in answering the questions in this open and honest way!

ABSURD today is nothing without the murderers.
They seem to spend too much time on forums and posing for photos when they should be strangling non aryan traitors like Sandro Beyer.

Kill all anti-werewolfers!

Perhaps the bands' performance on the first records can be debated on a purely technical level, but this has nothing to do with the music itself. With the re-recordings featured on DFK, one can obviously hear the huge potential even of the most early Absurd-songs such as "Ashes to Ashes" and "Last Breath". And if you talk of the latter, post 2001-recordings of Absurd, then you have to be plain dumb to try to debate the skills of someone like Unhold who wrote most of the music. This man belongs to the best musicians ever emerging from among the German Black Metal-scene, as a matter of fact


I couldn't agree with this more; the brilliant ideas that they had trouble expressing in those demos are fully developed here. I used to not care for early ABSURD until I heard this, and what they were trying to do back then hit me like a sack of bricks and now it all makes sense. Love it all now.

Any news of new material?

I can`t remember my response, but der funfzehnjahrige krieg is #1, with blutgericht and totenlieder close behind. I dont even care to split cunthairs with Absurd. Everything is fantastic.
