When, why and how was Samomor created? Who are the persons behind this name? Is this your first venture in the underground or were members of Samomor previously in other bands?
Samomor started at the end of 2008, although there were some thoughts and (intoxicated) rehearsals years before. Priorities had to be set and finally the self destruction could begin in a proper way. There are no names at all! This elite project has to be known for its music and its messages rather than the mortals hidden behind it.
It's not long since your first release saw the disgusting light of the day. We are talking about the Somnus Stellae EP. When was the EP recorded and what have been the reactions so far. Are you satisfied with the result?
This EP was just an egocentric necessity to see the physical reproduction of what has been created so far after few rehearsals. The whole thing was produced in September 2009 and it came out exactly the way it was ment to be, therefore I am very pleased with it. The rest is totally insignificant.
Which label released it and how can people get a copy of it?
Somnus Stellae was self-recorded and self-financed by creating our own label, which is a genuine start to realize everything without any compromise. Mankind can get it through local distributors or should write directly to Samomor.
Does Samomor stand behind any specific philosophy? What is the main theme in your lyrics? Is there a red line or a concept running through the lyrics on Somnus Stellae? Is there a message you would like to deliver?
Samomor praises solitude, misanthropy and death which are the only possibility to deepen yourself into your miserable existence and finally fulfill it. Somnus Stellae is mainly about Lucifer’s fall and His coming Rise, yet the message is incorporated in other thoughts I share in the lyrics. We must all die to see Him gloriously arise again!
Does any member of the band participate in any other project beside Samomor?
Everyone who is or was involved with Samomor played and still plays in more or less renowned bands/projects which are not worthy to be mentioned here.
The packaging of the EP is really good looking but does not hold a lot of information. Where can people find out more about the band?
What you hold in your hands contains enough information someone needs to know at the moment. Everything should be unveiled at the right time. Still I believe the message and the music are more important than the force that creates them.
Can Black metal exist outside of Satanism? What is your opinion?
I believe Black metal is strictly related to Satanism for it is one of its creative expressions to spread His name. Everything else without a satanic essence can be described however you want it but not as Black metal. No servant can truly serve more than one Master!
When does man's life end? Is death the final thing or do you believe in life after death?
Life is just a limited amount of time we are given to manage our will.
What does the following mean to you: DEATH – end of an enjoyable game
MISANTHROPY – individual supremacy over mass-ignorance
BLACK METAL – a creative way to spread Satan's presence
SUICIDE – fulfilment of the Self
EVIL – just a silly christian word used to describe what is against their expectations
GOD – a meaningless force which loses power and should have no followers at all
SATAN – the One who will unmask the deception
What does the future hold for Samomor? New releases? Live gigs? Merchandise?
There is no need to play live at the moment, yet this will not stop the existence nor the creativeness of Samomor. A powerful split LP should strike at weak ears very soon and maybe some shirts will be printed…thus you will be able to show how much you love and enjoy life.
Okay that’s it. Please close this interview with telling us where can people get your merchandise, how can they contact you? You can also send death treats to whoever you want, the final words are yours.
