As far as I know the Von interview was available on the Satanic Blood Angel LP. I didn't get a chance to pick it up. Where can I find the interview ?

If anyone can help, i'd appreciate it.

VON interview with KILL
Questions by YK Insulter of chri$t

(NWN) When and how was VON created?

(KILL) GOAT had been working on material as far back as 1989. He jammed with SNAKE on drums and another bass player who left the band in 1990, before VON was chosen as the band name. In 1991 GOAT and SNAKE played The Stone in San Francisco without a bassist for the show as VON. It was intense even without a bass player. Soon after that I joined the band and we recorded Satanic Blood.

(NWN) What was the original line up?

(KILL) The original line up is as written on the Satanic Blood demo…

GOAT – Guitar, Vocals
KILL – Bass
SNAKE - Drums

(NWN) When was the “Satanic Blood” demo recorded?

(KILL) Satanic Blood was recorded in early 1991.

(NWN) How was the demo recorded?

(KILL) The recording was made by the band in the VON studio using a piece of shit 8 track recorder.

(NWN) How many shows did VON play in its existance?

(KILL) VON played six or seven shows in the San Francisco bay area.

(NWN) What were the live rituals like? Who did you play with?

(KILL) VON wore blood and as it dripped down our faces and body beside inverted crosses, skulls, fog, and candles. GOAT would wear a skull type mask while performing the song Dissection Inhuman.

(NWN) Did people understand black metal back then?

(KILL) No! The band received recognition only by other black metal and death metal bands. But no recognition by any labels during VON’s existance.

(NWN) What sort of reactions did the demo get from the metal underground at the time of its release?

(KILL) When the Satanic Blood demo was sent out, we received no serious responses. Any reaction the band got was from shows. Still at that time no one really got where we were coming from. The rush of energy, darkness and evil we felt when we played, we wanted others to feel. It wasn’t until after VON broke up and many copies of the demo were passed around that I heard people were into it.

(NWN) How many copies of the demo were made by the band? Were they pro-printed or manufactured?

(KILL) Roughly two hundred original copies were made by ourselves using a dual deck recorder on speed copy. We bought blank tapes, GOAT put together the cover artwork and lyrics for the insert and they were copied by us for all the original demos. The original demo was a black 30 minute tape with a white label and song titles were typed.




(NWN) What do you think about all the VON bootlegs out there? Are any of them official?

(KILL) NO bootlegs are official as far as the band being a part of it. It’s great that people made copies and it got spread around as much as it did, but when there was no attempt to make contact before releasing a CD and claiming rights to it I got fucking pissed off!!

(NWN) How many songs did VON have before its untimely demise?

(KILL) VON had about twenty songs written before it ended.

(NWN) How many of those songs were unreleased?

(KILL) The only songs ever released were on the Satanic Blood demo.

(NWN) Why did VON break up?

(KILL) During the time the band was together, the metal scene sucked here. Paying our way in San Francisco and paying for a place to play was rough at times. Before long frustrations grew between the band members. Most of VON’s material was destroyed when the band split up except for these rare recordings.

(NWN) What does VON stand for? Does it stand for Victory Orgasm Nazis like some people claim?

(KILL) VON stands for nothing but images of darkness and blood.

(NWN) Is it true that you guys used to lift weights before gigs? If so, why did you guys do that?

(KILL) Yeah, GOAT and I tossed some weights around to psych us out a bit before shows, to get the blood flowing strong.

(NWN) What bands influenced VON?

(KILL) Diamanda Galas, Venom, Misfits, Sodom… bands like that.

(NWN) Have you heard Dork Funeral’s version of Satanic Blood? What about Haat’s version? I think Krieg from NJ has covered Devil Pig or another song. What do you think of modern black metal bands covering VON songs?

(KILL) I heard Dark Funeral’s version of Satanic Blood, it sounded good. I have not heard the others. If bands want to cover VON songs and it sounds good, that’s cool.

(NWN) Who did the unholy artwork for the demo?

(KILL) GOAT did all the artwork for the band.

(NWN) How come VON is credited as GOAT on some versions of the demo?

(KILL) He changed his name to GOAT and became what he wanted to.

(NWN) How many official VON t-shirts were made? I think Varg of Burzum was seen wearing one during his criminal trials.

(KILL) Only 100 T-shirts were made by the band. I don’t know about Varg Wearing it.



(NWN) Were you in contact with Varg from Burzum?

(KILL) Yes, he wanted more copies of the demo so we sent him a package of tapes, with the VON shirt as well.

(NWN) Ok, please end this interview.

(KILL) This is the first official release of Satanic Blood. The second demo (Blood Angel) was included although it was just a rough cut. The decision was made to release it all. Even the slightly damaged live recordings were added. What you are holding in your hands is the last of it, not intended to rock out to, but to leave you with a presence and complete darkness of hell. Raise your chalice and remember the blood of VON!!!
