I, APOKALYPSE TALK ABOUT THEIR ALBUM 'DESTROYER OF WORLDS'






PLEASE TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF.

We are I, Apokalypse from northern region of Quebec, Canada. We are a blackened death metal band who focus on delivering extreme, fast and violent music. We are a 4 piece band that are together for about 5 years and are all passionate about extreme metal music.



TELL US ABOUT YOUR LATEST ALBUM OR SINGLE

The album was recorded and is out since 2019. With covid, it slowed the process for promoting. So we started back doing shows and promoting as much as possible in 2023. Destroyer of Worlds is a 9 song album, that delivers violent black death metal from the start to the end.


WHICH SONG WOULD YOU SAY SUMS UP YOUR SOUND THE BEST?

Hard to choose.. I think every song on the album have something that complete our sound. If I have to choose it would be : Ripped by Dimension. I think this song shows well our violent and fast music, the last riff greatly show the type of melody we have in our music.


DESCRIBE YOUR MUSIC IN A FEW WORDS.

Fast, violent catchy black/death metal .


WHO HAVE YOUR BIGGEST INFLUENCES BEEN?

Musically speaking… bands like Belphegor, Dark Funeral, Marduk and much more. On the lyrics side, pretty much life as we experience it and were society goes..


HOW DID YOU GET INTO MUSIC?

Mainly friends. I had a lot of musician friends when I was younger and they liked to play music so it was like natural for me to join them and just learn and play music with them.


WHAT IS THE CREATIVE PROCESS LIKE FOR YOU WHEN MAKING MUSIC?

Depends.. like the way we did the last album won’t necessarily be the same as the next one. Right now, I would we are back to basics, we rehearse all together doing riff and finding the right sound for what we want next.


WHAT DO YOU THINK WOULD BE THE COOLEST COLLABORATION PROJECT BETWEEN YOU AND ANOTHER ARTIST?

Without altering our sound too much, I would say probably a good keyboard player to add some badass track to our songs. So I would say like Steinar Sverd(Arcturus) or Mustis( Ex Dimmu-Borgir)


PLEASE TELL US A RANDOM FACT ABOUT YOURSELF?

Beside making extreme music, we are pretty much normal / boring people.


WHAT IS THE BEST ADVICE YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN?

Do the music you love. Do it for yourself, not the others. If you don’t like what you are doing, it will show.


IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT THE INDUSTRY, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I would say that it would be nice that bigger label and big production give more chances to small band so they can discover. Right now, I think a lot goes through social media. At the end of the day, I think it’s hard to be recognized for what you really are.


WHAT'S NEXT?


We are planning to record a new song by the end of the year. Will probably come out in the beginning of 2024. We are looking for shows in 2024 and recording new songs as well
