Autumn 1997, Summer 1998,
with Akhalatabarnakh of Northwood Ice Pentagrams
Pentagrams gained notoriety by realeasing the unholiest and most primitive
black metal demo ever, "Purevildark". I interviewed the mysterious lord
Akhalatabarnakh, currently in Dark Tower studios for the recording of a
new side-project. This is the first part of the interview, second part
: Hello Master Akhalatabarnakh, I must congratulate you for the recording
of "Purevildark". It is the most evil
of the last century, at least.
: No need to thank me for SATAN possessed me during the whole recording
sessions for the demo, which, by the way, lasted only 30 minutes for the
whole thing. It was at the autumn equinox, and the moon was full in the
frostdarkened skies of the northwood, when I entered in a creative trance
which led to the creation of the unholy "Purevildark" demo. IT WAS PURE
Int : What
is the signification of "Akhalatabarnakh"?
Akh : In the
ancient babylionian tongue, the tongue of the baal worshippers, SATAN's
tongue, it means "The one who will crucify the christ and drink his blood
from behind". It's the ugliest name, meant to rip your tongue as you pronounce
it and make the ears of the listener bleed. AKH - ALA - TABARNAKH!!!
Int : Why are
you alone in the band?
Akh : I shall
not tolerate other uncreative force than the one of the master, SATAN.
I'm alone in the night, for alone I shall reign upon the remains of the
earth and beyond, when the frost northwood dominion will be granted to
me by the fallen one. I SHALL RULES ALL, I HAVE NO MASTER OTHER THAN THINE....SATAN!!!
Int : For how
long have you been playing your instruments?
Akh : I don't
play my instruments. I never learned. I never will. I bash unto them as
SATAN will, in transes of unholy destructive uncreation, to unleash the
voice within, the voice of EVIL, the voice of FROST and DEATH, the voice
of SATAN HIMSELF!!! For this reason I master the guitar, the bass, the
drums and the keyboard with an equal infinite mastery of evil during my
transes, but I'm not a musician. All talent is a sign of christian decay!
Primitive force shall prevail, like the viking pagan ancestor of old...
they lived in the Northwood forest, clad in winter, amongst the beasts.
Under the nightsky...
Int : Why is
there clean vocals in the song "The Northwood Vast Beyond Part II"?
Akh : To accentuate
the bitternest of the following screaming vocals. The constrast of fast
and slow, quiet and loud and pseudo-melodic and chaotic creates saves of
pure evil hatred. SATAN commanded me to sing clearly, so I drank the blood
of 666 goat to clean my voice for a line. The Icy Hand is the hand of the
forsaken, the hand of death... CAN YOU FEEL IT??? Like the whore of babylon,
the eye of the netherworld is opening to grasp the underending ages of
dark. DIE MORTALS!!!
Int : What
is your opinion of Christianity?
BURN IN HELL!!! His message was pathetic. SATAN WILL RULE. THE BIBLE SHALL
BURN. WHEN THE STARS ALIGNED IN THE SKIES THE PENTAGRAMS WILL BE REFORMED,
AND THE APOCALYPSE WILL BE UNLEASHED. IT'S TOO LATE, YOU SHALL ALL PERISH!!!
...by the wrath of LUCIFER. 666!!! I'M IMMORTAL!!!
Int : How can
you explain that you worship the melodic band IRON MAIDEN when your music
is all but purevil primitivity?
Akh : IRON
MAIDEN is the first true satanic band. Their song "The Number of the Beast"
is the most evil song ever written, for it comes from prophecies dictated
by SATAN himself. I have heard Harrisabarnakh wrote this song when he spent
the winter solstice in pilgrimage in the Northwood, in 1982. Which led
to "The Number of the Beast" album. The first album feature "Transylvania",
the hymn of the heart of Northwood, and therefore it is satanic. The second
album is satanic as well, as it prone DEATH in everyform... "Killers".
Each of their albums are propechies of the neverborn, SATAN himself the
master. Piece of Mind describe the path of the Muad'hib, the antichrist
of Dune. Powerslave is the pagan song of ancient egyptian gods, the wrath
of ancient pagan destructors. Somewhere in Time is the armaggeddon of apocalypse
retold from tomorrow. Seventh Son of a Seventh Son is the prophecy of the
anti-christ who shall destroy us all in his madness. They don't give a
prayer to the dying, they send them to hell, they are alive after death,
and they are real dead ones. They don't fear the dark. The Factor of SATAN
crest their crown of blood, blasphemy eternal!!! Eddie is also one of the
666 faces of SATAN, and one of the vilest. UP THE IRONS anagram is UIT
ROESNPH, which is the babylonian for "We worsphip SATAN and are more evil
than Darkthrone". MAIDEN IS EVIL! ALL HAIL THE IRON ONES!
Int : What
do you think of the Norweigian black metal movement?
Akh : The only
true black metal comes from the depths of the Northwood. Everything is
all but a poor imitation, a cloning of the might of Northwood Black Metal.
Their music is a pitiful copy of primitive Northwood music, and their corpsepaint
is a way to imitate my naturally white and black skin - a gift of MEPHISTO
himself. Only the northern ones shall prevail. ALL HAIL THE NORTHERN ONES!
SATAN FROST KILL HATE DARKNESS I SHALL RETURN FROM ICEDEATH!!! ETERNITY
IN FLAMES AND BEYOND...
Int : What
do you think of Transylvanian Werewolves, then?
Akh : They
are the second true northwood black metal band. They fuckin' rules! Second
only to the might of Northwood Ice Pentagrams. ALL HAIL THE WEREWOLVES!
Transylvania is the heart of the Northwood.... the deepest sodomy come
from the Wolfbrothers.They are to erected to veil the dawn...
Int : When
can we expect a new release from Northwood Ice Pentagrams? What are your
Akh : There
is a new demo planned for later in 1998, I slay a goat each day to be fully
prepared for the upcoming revelation BELZEBUTH will unleash upon me. I
had already three unholy uncreative destructive transes yet, during which
songs, more vile than those of the "Purevildark" demo. My ancestor's blood
is also awakening, and I will record soon a viking metal demo which will
be entitled "Frostevilshit". In the meantime, don't miss the split CD I
will record with Transylvanian Werewolves, a tribute to IRON MAIDEN. IT
WILL REAP YOUR FUCKING HEAD APART!!!
Int : Can you
tell us more about these three new songs? Will they be online soon?
The three songs
are : "Frigidia (Empress of Everfrost)", a song describing the curse of
a female incarnation of SATAN, a foul icefrozen deathbringing bitch. "The
Call of Nan-oo", an instrumental about the new destructions unleashed by
the goatdemon NAN-OO. It is a sequel to the Invocation, on the "Purevildark"
demo. The third song is "Christian Anus Devasted", a song of pure hatred
destined to smash christianity once and for all. I CRUCIFIED THE CHRIST
I'M THE FALLEN ONE, SATAN SPEAK THROUGH MY LUNGS, IL LUX VAL, DOMINE SATANAS!!!
666! They shall be online someday, when I finish my rituals in Dark Tower
studios. Only Realaudio brings the Northwood sound. ALL HAIL R.A. METAL!!!
Int : What
do you think of women's role in society?
The are bound
to be my sex slaves in the bitter winds of the winter Northwood for all
eternity. I'm the sexbeast, I'm SATAN REINCARNATED, I'M THE ANTI-CHRIST.
MY LUST IS INFINITE AS THE ETERNAL NIGHT ON THE NORTHWOOD FOREST!!! I SHALL
FUCK THEM ALL, I'M THE ALLMIGHTY!!!
Int : What's
your greatest fear?
I shall have
no fear as SATAN is my guide through the night. In the end I shall become
as one with my master. I SHALL RULES UPON THE REMAINS OF THE EARTH AND
THE NORTHWOOD WILL COVER ALL! THE DARK ONE IS FREED FROM SHAYOL GUL!
MORTAL WEEPs UPON YOUR DEFEAT!!!
RULES THE NORTHWOOD AND WHAT SHALL LAY BEHOND!!!
FORGOTTEN BABYLONIAN TONGUE I SCREAM TO THE SKIES :
SHALL BE FOREVER ENTHRONED IN THE NIGHTFROST OBSCURITY!!!
SHALL BE SODOMIZED!!!
SHALL LAY VAST BEYOND, TWICE!!!
INVOKE THEE, MATANKALISSEY-UN... NAN-OO, DEMON OF FROZEN!!!
with Akhalatabarnakh of Northwood Ice Pentagrams
having released the last year the ultimate and rawest primitive
metal ever, spawning the northwood black metal movement, Northwood
finally returns with their highgly awaited debut album,
Frosted Flakes of Frost". To celebrate this holy birth of
I spoke with lord Akhalatabarnakh, the lone member of the
: All hail the northern ones! How is the lord of all blackest
doing in this dark morning?
As you'll hear on the BECKONING FROSTED FLAKES OF FROST album, I
hate the sun! Only to spread the word of SATAN I must endure this
at daytime. My soul is cold, I belong to the frozen glades of
Bloom the brisk cunt of the nightsky...
Could you please give information about your debut album?
Akh : This album is
unleashed by the name of BECKONING FROSTED FLAKES OF FROST. The titles
comes from the centerpiece of the album, the epic FROSTED FLAKES OF FROST,
a song which depicts
the true nature of the beast, TONY THE TIGER himself, which
is the actual incarnation
of the anti-christ - beholding each and every soul on
earth through the unholy possessed boxes of cereals. TONY IS MY MASTER AND LORD,
RIBOFLAVIN IS DEMONIC!
TONY IS EVIL, TONY IS SATAN!
The rest of the albums
consists of various demonic hymns from my possessed trances, each
more EVIL than the last. The whole PUREVILDARKNESS demo is also included in
all it's sluggist garagesound
majesty, as well as some bonus tracks.
POSSESSED MY GARAGE, SATAN REIGNS!

Who is Lord Jasminoo?
Akh : One of my slaves
and minion, who played guitar on the two Iron Maiden covers track and
drums on the live track. His anus is ablaze by the fury of my satanic rod of
In which way this album is different and a progression from the demo?
It is not a progression, but it is different. It is a regression in pritive
spewed satanic bile juices of hatred mayhemic slaughter. Difference lay

Why a song in french? Why using more keyboards, even acoustic guitars,
"weak" sounding instruments? Or clean vocals?

enhance the unmusical
experience of frost, cold, evil, satanic, grinding, hateful

les nordiques! AMEN TOÉ SATAN!
Any new musical influences?
Akh : The music of
NORTHWOOD ICE PENTAGRAMS is the music of SATAN chanelled through me. No further
influences of any sorts.
Can you shed some light on the lyrical theme explored in this new opus?
Akh : I shall not shed
light but darkness, my soul belongs to SATAN! But I can lead the willfull
children on the path to enlightement and understanding of my cacophonous
of darkness. Frigidia is the tale of the frostening of mine heart by a
foul servant of everfrost,
a diabolic demoness who possessed my soul. Into the Grotesque Rectum
of Leviathan details to possession of one's intestine and stomach by the
of the depths. Chalice of Satan is a baptism in blood, a
of allegiance to the dark side! The Nan-oo songs are dedicated to the deamon
of cowardice, which
I hate with all the flames of the gehenna. May he drown in the styx! This

and sodomy. NORTH,

Who produced your debut album?
one! It was all recorded in one take, in the pits of Darktower studio,
is not a studio but an altar of sacrifice to the bowels of SATAN.
black metal allow themselves to be whored by "production"! Northwood
metal is spontaneous possesions by the jaws of SATAN and I spew the filth
inner visions on tape without reheasal, soundcheck or any way! Raw is evil,
bad sound is evil,
NORTHWOOD IS THE INCARNATION OF ALL FROST FORSAKEN SATANIC BLASPHEMOUS
VITRIOLIC EVIL! Suck me, SATAN!
Are you signed to any record company? How will work the distribution of
Akh : Only commercial
pathethic christian jew money-loving faggy whores are signed to record
labels! I despise them as I despise the christ! Northwood Ice Pentagrams
never be signed to any rotten greedy corporate record company! This album
is a work
of true inner satanic soulsearing ART, and each copy is burned by
in the forges of exultations, the cavern of the hellish dark tower studios.
I CHEW THE CUNT OF
LILITH! I send each copy myneself to my blasphemous followers. VLAS

with Northwood Ice Pentagrams
Hail high lord Akhalatabarnakh! What was the reaction to the first album
of Northwood Ice Pentagrams?
Akh : The reaction
to the first album was totally atrocious! Everyone who heard it so far totally
hated it! This is
exactly the reaction I planned, and this is the reaction every black metal album
should inspire! Total disgust
and total fear at the might of SATAN!!! The album sold only THREE copies worldwide,
thus making it
the most UNDERGROUND,
CULT and RARE black metal album ever. Any black metal album that sell more than
10 copies is
a christian capitalistic sold-out! Detroy democracy! Hail oligarchy of darkness...our
Do you plan to repeat this evil feat with the second album?
Akh : I want to do
even worse! I want it to disgust and terrify the whole world and beyond, and
I want to sell even less
copies! Absolute blasphemy of total misanthropic hatred and no commercial jewish
comprises! I spit on the holy
ghost and rape virgin mary at night! For I am the soul of SATAN! Hell awaits...
Tell us more about the new Northwood Ice Pentagrams album!
Akh : This second opus
of total darkness and blasphemous evil is titled "Into the woods of the forest
of Northwood"! During
the 32 tracks lasting 66 minutes, we penetrate the audial essence of the evil
forest of northwood and we
are repeatatly raped by sodomic satanic branches - concussing waves of pure
darkness and evil and frost! This album
is anti-musical, anti-christian, anti-jewish, anti-god, anti-jesus, anti-trend,
anti-south, anti-color! Fuck
them all with the forked tongue of LUCIFER! Hail SATAN, blaspheme the Christ!
I eat Crucifixes!!! Damn me!!! E-mail
me further inquiries about the album, I shall enlighten you... but no request
for free copies! I despise critics
and reviewer! Behead them all!
Any difference or evolution from older recording?
A few differences,
and only regression!!! The sound is even harsher, I actually recorded all the
songs louder than
the normal levels for a CD, so it would hurt the ears! Yes, your ears will bleed
on this album! The drums are
tenfold more aggressive and violent, the guitar playing is fiercer and more
satanicly chaotic!! There is
less acoustic, clean
vocals or keyboard or other soft shit, but when there is it makes a total constrast
your soul apart with satanic agony of suffering pain and hatred!
The three fans of Northwood
Ice Pentagrams will recognize at once my unmistakable demonic style! NIP is
rules over all! I am the most evil man on Earth! I'm not even a man, I'm inhuman,
I'm a demon. Akhalatabarnakh
name and you will suffer in hell! Along with SATAN our master!!!!
It seems you used a drum machine on this album, contrarly to the totally
chaotic random drums used previously,
Akh : The programmed
drums can reach a speed and ferocity that no human could - thus they are inhuman,
thus they are evil!!!
They will decapitate the christian faith and rend asunder the jewish corporations!!!
Destroy all faith, all
hope, all joy, all hapiness!!! The world is total blasphemy and misery...the
world is SATAN!!!
What the fuck is the Hellish Hell EP?
Akh : It is basically
leftovers crap from various demonically possessed recording sessions. Most of
the tracks are
only satanic guitar and agonising throat shredding vocals, without drums or
anything else! It's about a thousand
time crappier than the album! Thus a thousand time more EVIL!!! There exist
only TWO copies of the
tape, so it's the most
cult Northwood release ever! I don't consider it official though, it was mixed
Dwarfucker. And he belongs to SATAN!!!
Who are Lord Richardox? And what happened to Lord Jasminoo who so brillantly
massacred the guitar track
Maiden covers? And who is NEKHROLAIZBEE?
Akh : Lord Richardox
is a daemon I conjured by accident during one of my black mass ceremonies -
he appeared from the
7th hell and recorded the song "404 Resource Not Found" with me, in an orgy
of destructive hatred and flailing!
It was hell on Earth! We dedicate this song to Bill Gates, the true antichrist,
and his satanic OS
Windows 95! Lord Jasminoo
is back on the new album for another Iron Maiden cover massacre! This time we
"The Clairvoyant", from the most evil Maiden album, 7th son of a 7th son of
course!!! NEKHROLAIZBEE is
a faggy bashee with an ear-shattering shrieking voice who did a duet with me
on the song "Gothique Lesbiennes Vampire".
He also wrote the gay lyrics of this song - a crappy romantic gothic vampire
ode in the tongue of gayness,
french! It's an absolute total suffering for all the senses... you will be torn
apart by the SATANIC glory of
this ode to darkness, frost, blood, hate and semen. EVIL!!!
It seems you recorded a new version of the classic Northwood Ice Pentagrams
song "Evildark enthroned
Indeed - this version doesn't have any keyboard to smooth the sound, it's
raw like the ass of SATAN!
How worked the collaboration with Transylvanian Werewolves for the last
two tracks on the album?
Akh : In a total orgy
of sodomy and ritual invocation blasphemies! We slitted our veins, sacrificed
a couple of goats,
performed in various sexual acts not accepted by christianity and generally
wrecked havoc on our destroyed
instruments. The results are "Fuck me JP" and "Chapitre Dernier", total chaos!
HAIL ME, HAIL SATAN,
What is your ancestry?
Akh : My ancestry is
threefold - In satanic dead veins flows the blood of the ancient barbaric celtic
old Gaul (Britain), the blood of the Viking conquerors of Newfoundland who came
the new world in the christian
year 1000 and the blood of the evil Inuit of the absolute north! The inuit are
men on earth, therefore
they know the absolute night and absolute darkness of evil and hate! I will
for the slaughter of the inuits! Inuktitut kuuqjaq nuktaluktut!!!!!!!! The song
"NUVANUT" on the album
is decidated to my inuit ancestors!!! The inuit are the chosen ones - OF SATAN!!!!!
Is northwood a political band?
Akh : NIP is absolutely
NOT a political band!!! However, we will always stand for ultra-nationalistic
liberal communism, exclusively or mutually. Satanic anarchy in an ultimate totalitalian
state - that is the
spirit of the kingdom of northwood! Totally monarchy of darkness, hail dictatorism!
Be my slaves! Under the
banner of SATAN!!! Northwood supports Ceacescu, Staline, Lenine, Hitler, Thatcher
Any last words?
LURKS!!!RAPE THE ASS OF CHRIST!!!SODOMY AND INTOXICATION!!!HELL BLOOD FIRE
