About a month ago a German web magazine named vampster.com* was the first media after Fathoming Heavy-blog to ever mention the band. Of course, we are pleased to be mentioned by such a great magazine but also we are amused how people, despite how much we do bloody nag it into folks head, misspells our band name. It is simple… SIMPLE, SIMPLE! ONE word, LOWER CASE letters, ONLY!!!
*After see this vampster.com changed it into one word but they use upper case letters for all bands so that matter stands.
So fire up your German or use Google translate and read the first-ever article written about us:
Note 2: when we do spread this web site it also gives bloodofjupiter in capital letters… so before we become completely arrogant douchebags we must confess…
just wait for it…
We are in 2020 and our debut album “Eternal Damnation” is recorded with technician and co-producer Robert Pehrson in Humbucker Studios in Stockholm. It will be mixed later in the spring and most likely self-released in the fall. The tracks recorded were:
- Eternal Damnation
- Abstract Unobtainium
- Hommage des Ténèbres
- Archangel Polymorphess in Blue
- 232 – Esoteric Terror
- Storm Past Torture
We said we should keep quiet until further on but we just want to thank Robert Pehrson of Humbucker Studios for being an awesome engineer and semi-producer when we recorded our first full length. We do await him to have time to mix it later this spring as he should finalize his tremendous work on this mauling, hypnotizing smoke of complete darkness…
Loading up for a new adventure and we will not speak more until you will be able to hear the result. New merch approaching for the gig with a new t-shirt design and the few super ltd beanies that still remain.
So, if we do not leak any pics or so on any social media, there will be quiet until this storm has passed over us and we do see you in Stockholm at Bar Brooklyn, February 22nd for the first headlining show with a full set ever and our first show in 2020.
In the process of writing, I sometimes go for different subjects for inspiration. For some of the new songs, we will be featuring the subject nothing. Like in absolutely nothing. What is nothing, what something can I place into nothing? What nothing can I place into something? These theories are interesting to work with and see what I can get out of it and what people will interpret from my writings. Most of them are quite open and it is for the eyes of the beholder to decide what something is the nothing I keep going about. Or maybe it is something ending up in nothing that is something, like the quite odd piece named “Abstract Unobtainium” where I create something out of nothing and place it here as well as there and all of a sudden good ol´Cthulu swims into the picture.
In another piece, I just discovered the other day that I might stole that title from a line in a newer Deep Purple-song. I never steal on purpose, but sometimes it´s been told for you before and it can take a long time before you discover that your context do have an overlapping with a certain context from somewhere else. The funny thing is when you do discover the most unpredictable coincidences. They are really not that obviously many of the times.
Inspirational elements are likely far back in my head and when I do write something I apparently do have something completely else on my mind. Why my contexts often ends up in complete complexity. Unpredictable and also fascinating. Looking at my book, I discovered by a fanmail that I used the title for a song for Opeth many years ago, which I could not for my life remember myself as the song was really not used in the end so it got buried and forgotten. Still the title etched inside my head far back and when I started the work with the book in 2013, I was all clear about the title to start with. The next book, on the other hand, contains a title with words that are newer for me than the days with some other band than bloodofjupiter but the book coming after that contains another theft of an old title from a song that might be remembered by one or two. So there is always a meaning of the nothing that actually is a something, because the day nothing will become nothing, then you probably clocked out already.
