Interview with Angelo of Astral Projection (By D)

WELCOME TO TRANSYLVANIAN FOREST ZINE! how you doing? I just remembered to do this haha

1) When did your band start and why? Well it started 2 yrs ago after I've been getting visions of a surreal reality and alot morbid visions that seemed real when I dream and sinced then I recorded a 3 song demo about my experience (which is for free download on my youtube page).

2)What sound are you going for in this project besides your known status in the band Tryblith, how do the 2 differ you think? Not really sure. I just pick up a guitar and let my fingers and my mind do the work. Well its easy, Tryblith is a spritual journey while Astral Projection is more like a journey through a surreal dimension that may either interest an individual or make a weakling pussy out of someone during the first 10 seconds of my music.

3)What equipment do you use, and how long have you been a musician for? I use my ibanez guitar with a line 6 amp.

4)How has the recording process been so far, and what do you personally think of Astral Projection??? well so far its been great and I'm happy with the sound I got. I'm using a session drummer to record this album plus I'm redoing the older songs also due to the fact that I never really thought it was quite ready yet. But when I recorded that 3 song demo I was by myself in an abandon house with my analog recorder and my instruments and I did not really write anything. I just let my mind and the negative vibe surrounding me write everything while I was recording...

5)What inspired you to make this project in the first place and what do you get out of making such dark music of the sort? well since those surreal dreams and my near death experience I've been interested in another world where after death an individual would be trialed and has to relive parts of there terrible tragic events that would make a person break and cry on the floor asking for mercy.

6)Is there any merch readily available you like to mention? (Even Tryblith you can mention if you like... ) not really at the moment and Tryblith... it will have merch in the future.

7)What do you do outside of music? Hobbies, or anything you like to mention. Well I do not do really anything that much really. I hang out with friends most of the time. I do not really have a social life really. I always love to drink beer and smoke weed with people sometimes but not really an addict. Most of the times I would always get an idea for a song and Iam always on my guitar 24/7 always making some stuff up...

8)What is your goal for this project of yours and what do you see in the near future with it if you have any ideas at all on what direction you like to have it go in? I'll just go with the flow... (word....-D)

9)Is it a natural musical process or is it something you got to sit down and think about, or is it just instinct? .... Just Instinct (word....-D)

10)I will close our interview up at this last question, what do you expect people to get out of your project, and will your project ever be a gigging band? and I thank you for your time!

Let them be prepared for a different type of black metal they never heard before and as far as shows go... Only time will tell.

Genre:Black Metal/DSBM/Morbid
