Time For Metal / Rene:
Hello Antichrist,

I’m glad, you found some time for an interview concerning your new album Forbidden World, which will be released on October 14, 2011.

Antichrist:
No problem. Thanks for the interest.

 
Time For Metal / Rene:
First of all I have a question concerning the cover of the album. Could you please explain why you chose this cover and has it a deeper meaning?

Antichrist:
This painting was made by our friend Kriss Palmgren and to us this is the ultimate visual expression that reflects the entity of the album. It is all done by hand and Kriss is truly a great artist. If some people don’t like it we feel sorry for them.

 
Time For Metal / Rene:
Antichrist was founded in the year 2005. At that time you decided to record two demos and release your first album. What were your motives for that action?

Antichrist:
Well, what’s a band supposed to do? We wanted Antichrist to be more than just some evil obssesion in our brains. So we decided to make „Crushing Metal Tape“. If you want to achieve something you have to get inspired and let out your creativity. After the first demo we continued to write more music and so now we have released two demos and are soon about to release our first album..

 
Time For Metal / Rene:
Your music can be described as Thrash Metal with some elements of Black and Death Metal. What awaits the listener on your new album? Will the style be the same as it was on your demos Crushing Metal Tape and Put To Death or will there be some changes?

Antichrist:
Well, it’s best you listen to the album and decide for yourself but if you like our demos you will hopefully like this one too. The songwriting process seems to be more serious and complex now than in the beginning. However we are still inspired by much of the same bands and ideas that we were in the past.
 
Time For Metal / Rene:
I had the opportunity to prelisten to Forbidden World and I have to say that I really like it. Especially the songwriting and the old school flair are pretty cool. Could you explain our readers how you proceeded with the production of your new album and how you arranged the songwriting-process?

Antichrist:
Almost everything was written in a small house in the woods outside town. Some of us have been living there for the past two years. We find it hard to write music in our rehearsal in the city, so we turned to the inspiring settings that surrounds that place…
Also in the middle of nowhere you can do pretty much what you want without anybody knowing.

 
Time For Metal / Rene:
Which bands inspired you while recording Forbidden World?

Antichrist:
Everything good from Bo Hansson to Morbid Angel.

 
Time For Metal / Rene:
You have been elected by Fenriz (Darkthrone) as “Band Of The Week”. Was this motivating for the further work on your album?

Antichrist:
The record would sound exactly the same even if Fenriz had not chosen us for „band of the week“.

However, it’s definitely cool to see that people who have good taste in music likes what we do.

 
Time For Metal / Rene:
What can your fans expect of you after finishing Forbidden World? Do you need a breather or do you already have some appointments?

Antichrist:
We have some gigs coming up and we will definitely not slow down. We are already working on new material and we are hoping to play much more gigs in the future. You should be able to find all the information you need on this website: www.militiaofdeath.com

 
Time For Metal / Rene:
Our readers are mainly from Germany. Did you already played some gigs in Germany or are there some shows planned?

Antichrist:
We have played some gigs there for example at Hell’s Pleasure and Raging Death Date. The germans can expect more shows in the future. Germany have always been a good place for thrash metal maniacs like ourselves.

 
Time For Metal / Rene:
At the ending you have the chance to send some words to your fans:

Antichrist:
All fans should warn their neighbors that they expect a visitor from hell and that they should keep their children safe because they are about to enter the „Forbidden World“!

 
Time For Metal / Rene:
Thank you for the interview and all the best to you!

Antichrist:
Cheers! See you in germany. /ANTICHRIST
