"Lilith's Mortuary interview"



1. Why the name, what do you want to express with it?

The name comes from Lilith; the first wife of Adan, before the creation of Eve. She didn’t fit well with Adan and left him, Taking a cave in the coasts of the read sea as her come, where she gave birth to demons. Because of her refusal of coming back from the sacred gardens. As Punishment for her refusal she was told by three angels that a hundred of her sons will be killed each day and he sweared vengeance, promising to kill hundreds of Adan sons as well. So , with “Lilith’s Mortuary” we mean the place where she keeps all their victims. This is why she is considered by many people as the mother of all demons.

Of course we are not a satanic band but with our name we express our interests in religions, mythology and all the stories about the human origin or his nature.

2. Why did your change your death black style to more gothic, which are you main influences?

This style was how the first line-up of the band felt like playing; they had a lot of black metal influences. The changes in the band’s playing style are due to the changes in its line-up, we always play what we feel playing, whatever we hear within ourselves in a way that shows how we feel or that express the ideas or thoughts we want to manifest. Every member has very different influences from each other that is chat may define our style as “different”.

Some of our influences are : children of bodosm, Bleeding Through, Gloria Morti, Between the buried and me, Haggard, Stratovarius, Sonata Artica, Epica, Dimmu Borgir, Devil Driver, Never More, Dark Tranquility, Dark Lunacy, Anorexia Nervosa, Macbeth, etc.

3. How is the song-writing process on Lilith’s Mortuary, Which is more important to you the music or lyrics, why?

Usually a band member comes to a rehearsal with an idea he wants to develop and with some riffs for it, so we usually compose the music first but based upon certain ideas and after finishing it we write together the lyrics ( still based upon the same ideas.) For all these we may say that we create stories or develop concept in form of music. Even though we make the music before the lyrics, everything has the same importance, for we want to make music with which we feel something and makes us flow into a story about ourselves and we will be glad if it happened to other people as well.


4. You have released your demo, how many themes have it, how is the promotion and reviews of the media?

We had previously released a demo that contained 5 songs but that was some time ago, it had good accept by the people. Now we are corcently working on a second demo which we plan to have 10 song’s; 8 totally new themes and 2 song’s which we plan record again with much more quality from old demo. From this new demo we have already released 4 singles that have had great surprise. Many different websites have made us mostly good comments, also the same has happened with many distributers that have asked us for more material as well as with people that like the band, all of them no just from America but also from many other parts from around the world. We are more than happy and surprised with the acceptance of your projects until this day.

5. Is complete your line-up, why have you had a lot of changes in your line-up?

We feel that we are complete now with a line-up based upon friendship above all, and the reason the band ad many changes was lack of it. We feel on the right way now and have hope and a great spirit of gronth to become one day what we want; great musicians living of their passion.

6. you have played with bigger bands like Adumus and Thorspawn, how was that shows, with what other bands have you played?

Playing with Adumus and Thorspawn was a great experience for the band, even though it was a different line-up than the actual one. After that concert the band was proposed to play whit Adumus and Thorspawn in San Antonio ( usa.) but we didn’t feel ready.

We have played with a lot of bands but most of them if not all underground or independent bands, some of them if not are: Obeisance, Judas eye, Erotic Death from Texas, The Killing From Argentina, Hacavitz ( ex-disgorge), Animos Nocti, Cruentuz, Dark Evocation, Dramatum from Mexico. And from many other places as well.

7. What do you know of Peru or South America?

Not much since it is very hard to find material from very good bands that we know should exist there in our city. We tend to listen to European bands mostly but not because we judge them to be better than those from our continent, which we are proud of but because it is really hard to find material from them.

8. which is your opinion about the nationalism, do you think that’s is the begin of the xenophobia, why?

Nationalism is something that we thing is good, we think that it shouldn’t have anything to do with xenophobia even though it does due to the misunderstanding of this concept by many people. Nationalism is right since we need to be proud of our Aroots, of the place from where we come, of our people, of our traditions, of ourselves and it should’t have anything to do with hating others just because they are from different places.

It is also something fun and solidary, for example in sport when the winner holds his flay up in the gir with a big smile while at the same time shows empathy and comforts and hugs the one that wasn’t lucky .

9. Do you belive in anything, which is your point of view about the faith?

We believe in many things like friendship, love, nature, music, etc, we all have different beliefs when it comes to religion, but we have certain points of view in common; we believe in a god that create everything, in heaven, in hell, and mostly in man, and in the power he has in his hands of changing his destiny depending on his dids.

10. Any future plan?

More than a plan, it is a dream to make all of our effort to one day become true musicians living of their passion. Also we are about to start a tour in Mexico, there are still few dates on it but we’ll have fun and dive our best doing what we like; playing music.

11. Any last comment?

Thanks for the support and hope one day we have the chance of looking at those beautiful lands capes and buildings you have in South America and of course of Performing there as well.

"Lilith's Mortuary music"

This band hailing from Mexico defies what black/doom metal is all about. Not the typical long intro or adlib you usually hear in this genre of music. Their promo cd from Felony1 records Metal composes of 4 songs, and I do notice that they have a mellow intro at the start which you can sense the Latin or Mexican guitar to begin with. Then as it goes in the middle, the two killer vocalist will awaken you with their hasty yet enduring shriek and growl. Then as it goes at the end of the song, it goes back to mellow again. What I like is FREEDOM MY PRISON because the beginning starts with this Scottish-like intro (then it reminds me of LOTR, hehe) and how the pianist soothes my senses… just fucking loves this song!
Now I do wish their full-track album will be done soon! - Fonda - Nbzine
