SYMURAN for Pest Webzine (Blitz Quitz)

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
- The band was founded on August 25, 2008 in Kharkiv city, Ukraine.
At the present moment Symuran is a duet: Vlad Rommel and Khort. We work on a new material and search for new members for our crew.
Currently we perform together with other bands: I am a vocalist in black metal formation “The Hum”, Khort plays bass in industrial-project “Risenstar”.

2. How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
-We call our style “Pagan Blackened Death metal”. This is a rather technical death metal flavored with black-metal harmonies and pagan lyrics. Primarily it’s Belphegor, Behemoth, Nile, Amon Amarth, Zyklon and Sepultura.

3. Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
-Because it’s worth it! Our releases are good enough even for fastidious metalheads.

4. What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
-In the beginning of 2009 we made a live demo-version called “Demonized” on our rehearsal consisting of six tracks and published it on “Vkontakte” social network. Later on, in the end of that very year at our studio we recorded the “The Night Will Fall Down Again” single, which was put publically shared as well.
In the end of 2011 we recorded our debut album “Syklus av Helheim” and released it with Metal Scrap Records on summer 2012. After this Symuran took part in several volumes: Twenty Years Anniversary, Cmpl#7 [2CD, Metal Scrap Records] in 2013 and Extreme Metal Compilation II: Black Messiah [CD, FONO LTD. METAL LABEL] in 2014. We wish our CDs were sold better than they do now)

5. Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
-Symuran went on stage pretty few times, and mainly in different memberships. Starting from spring 2010 we are a studio project. But, when we collect a new complete crew, we will start to perform on stage again.

6. What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
-Symuran is a modern formation, which carries a concept of struggle against rotten world systems and obsequiousness. Symuran opposes to the world religions with power of ancient gods. We are the knife which cuts the obedient sheep. We are the fire which burns cowards and traitors alive. We carry the concept of overall purification: resurrection through death.

7. What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
-At this moment we think about new full-scale album of Symuran.

8. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
-Our music is available on our official Myspace, Reverbnation and Facebook. You can contact me through my Facebook account and agree on purchase of the desired stuff.
