Mortal Adullouis's Akey Talks Band's History and Future Plans

Pagan black metal act Mortal Adullouis formed in 2002 and through the years of 2010-2011 they faced line-up changes but eventually came around to find a suitable set of members and would hit the underground scene as much as possible. Now they have an EP and full-length in the works. Guitarist Akey discusses about the new material and plans for the future.

1. What type of band are you guys?

Akey: Our music is a kind of pagan black metal.

2. Who wrote the songs, what are they about?

Akey: We create a character, while lyric tells us more about the elements, of paganism, satanism, darkness.

3. How did the band get it's name?

Akey: Our name mean's to lose it all, that trust, memory, and so on.

4. Can you tell me a brief summary as to how the band came to be and where is the band from?

Akey: We were established in 2002 first named Adullouis, we formed the band because we all shared the same music likes. Too often we'd hang out and meet up then eventually we would form a band that would channel our talents and aspirations. We were influenced by the gothic metal genre by bands like, Sirenia, Unsun, Within Temptation, Therion and so forth.

Initial Line-Up:

Akey (Guitar & Vocals)
Doyok (Rhytm)

Over the years our musical journey would be embarked in the underground scene, several events and compilations would be done outside the city and in our own cities we would devour every one. During the beginning of 2010, we changed our name as well as our genre, because we thought we wanted to replace our sound with a fresh new format. But still we all agreed and it became Mortal Adullouis, still using part of our previous name.

Several of us were busy with other activities so we ended up changing members in mid-2011, we finally had reached a genre and line-up we were all suited on. We would go with black metal. With the power and our new formation, we are ready to dwell in the dark and create new music.

Line-Up :

Adi : Horrible Guttural Vox (Vocal)
Akey : Six String Assaulter (Lead Guitar)
Ajie : Madness String Blasphemer (Rhytm)
Doyox : Backdrop Sickness Megaloblast (Bass)
Idunk : Grinding Blasting Torture (Drums)

5. Do you write your own songs? What are your songs about?

Akey: The lyrics of the songs are all made of personal experiences, by adjusting the characters of the music, like the themes of our music is about paganism, satanism, anti-religion, and darkness. We are a pagan black metal band.

7. Why did you want to title this EP "Battlehymne From The Asgard Throne"? Is this EP a concept release?
