Please, tell us something about your band (history, members, recordings/releases, livegigs, label?
Runemagick has existed since the early 90’s with some breaks in between.
There have been many line-up changes over the years but now we got a cool
one with Nicklas Rudolfsson – vocals/guitar, Emma Karlsson – bass, Daniel
Moilanen – drums and Fredrik Johnsson on guitar. So far we have released 4
full-length albums, 1 live LP, 1 7″EP and some demo cassettes. The band has
made like 30 gigs since the beginning so we are not so live experienced. Our
current label is Aftermath Music and it’s a great underground label!
How would you describe your position in the wide-world metal scene? What do you think about the underground movement?
– I see us as a small band that plays music not meant to be big. We play the
music that we enjoy to hear and play and that’s the most important for us! I
believe that our music belongs underground ant the worshippers of dark death
The underground that we are in touch with are great. There are always good
and bad things but it’s best to ignore the bad shit.
Which 3 CDs would you take with you to a lonely island?
That’s a heard question! But if I must at the moment it would have been:
Black Sabbath – Paranoid, Coroner – No More Colors, Fields Of The Nephilim –
Elizium. Fuck there are tons of music I would like to bring with me haha!
If you had enough money to shoot a video, how would the clip look like?
Actually we thought about a video but we don’t have the money! It would be
something very abstract and dark, maybe in black/white. I can see it in my
head but it’s hard to explainI don’t even now if we as persons in the band have to be in it.
If you’ve the chance to change one day of your life. Which will it be and why?
– I know some days but that’s personal stuff hehe!
Which song shall be played on your burial?
First I want Bathory to play live with the song “Valhalla” then Black
Sabbath with “Planet Caravan
If you had the chance to kill someone and to bring back one person in the same way, which would it be and why?
I would have brought back a friend who died too early some years ago
because he had more to give in his life. Kill, hmm I have a few candidates.
well I will kill them all haha!
What means metal to you?
– Good music! But there’s also bad metal, but that isn’t metal to me!
What is your opinion on political lyrics?
I don’t care about if someone uses it. We don’t because it doesn’t fit
into death, doom or black metal!!
What can we expect from your band in the future?
A strictly limited album called “Moon Of The Chaos Eclipse” will be
released in September by Aftermath Music. Then we will start record our next
real album in November and it will hopefully be out in Mars maybe on
Aftermath Music! Then we hope to do some gigs and so on.
