Here is a new interview with Belgium's Tyrant's Kall who has just released their second cd "GlA AKl" through Witches Brew Rec. if you are a fan of Metal bands that don't have boundaries then Tyrant's Kall is a band you will want to hear and support
Interview with Ronnie Razor from Tyrant's Kall done by Patrick
please introduce yourself to the readers.When did you first
meet the other members of Tyrant's Kall ?
birth of Tyrant's Kall took place somewhere in the dark depths of our
imagination a long time ago. It's only since the year 2008 that the
first song was written. Then only member was Ronny Razor. About one year
later the first real jam as a band took place, then the only 3 members
were Mark on drums,axeslinger Ronny and thundering roaaarrrrr UxJx.
We didn't decide to play doom/death, that's only what came out of us.
We did a few gigs as a 3-piece with different vocalists, but when Esmee joined TK, everything fell into place, everyone
in the band has something to add to the music. Shortly after the
release of Dagon H.M. Doom joined on rhythm guitar, we needed an extra
guitar live to keep it heavy, and he was a fan of the band, so the
choice was easily made.
is the current line up for Tyrant's Kall ? For the
readers who have never heard Tyrant's Kall music how would
you best describe it?
Current line-up: H.M. Doom: guitars; Ronnie Razor: guitars; Ronos Smurd: drums: UxJx: bass and Esmee Tabascoo on vocals.
quote: "the style of Tyrant's Kall is a ballsy, almost pure
death-metal, with quite a lot of very brutal parts and other parts which
are quite crushing and atmospheric and sound doom to the bone."
Tyrant's Kall has just released their second cd "Gla Aki"
how long did it take the band to write the music for the
new release? Does the whole band work on the music or does
one member usually write everything?
didn't take quite long to have enough songs for the Gla'aki album, we
jam very often all together so riffs come out quickly, we just melt them
into songs and then Esmee puts the lyrics on them.
when a member works out a complete song at home, but usually they come
from jam sessions, nothing beats the vibe when you start to jam on some
believe the lyrics are based on H.P Lovecraft when did you
all start reading his work? What are some of your favorite
stories of his? Besides H.P Lovecraft are their any other
authors you all enjoy reading?
"I have always been interested in 'scary things'. When I was a little
kid and couldn't read myself, I picked out books that had a witch or
monsters on the cover for my father to read for me. Later this was still
the same. When there was a story about the macabre I wanted to read it.
I think I was somewhere between 10 and 12 years old when I read my
first collected stories of Lovecraft. Now I think I have everything he
has written. I really enjoyed Dagon and Medusa's Coil. But I can keep on
reading all of his stories again and again. His poems are really nice
as well, like for instance Mirage. The atmosphere is awesome.
Campbell should also be mentioned here, I also like a lot of his work.
Without 'The Inhabitant of the Lake', our 'Gla'aki' wouldn't have
My interests have become wider over the years now. Some
of my other favorite authors are Terry Pratchett, Donna Tartt, Karen
Maitland, ... And 'Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell' is a book I can
also keep reading over and over again."
Tyrant's Kall has just made a video for the title song
how long did it take you all to do this video? Is this the
bands first experience making a video?
shot the video in 2 days. First day the scenes from the lake was shot
with Esmee, the other day we shot the band footage in our rehearsal
It was our first experience, it was very cool to do.
their plans to make any other videos for songs off the new
cd?Is their a certain song you would like to make a video
If we have the chance I would like to shoot a video for the song "Evil Eye".
Tyrant's Kall get to play live very often or do you prefer
to work in the studio? Who are some bands Tyrant's Kall
has had the pleasure to share the stage with?
don't play live very often, maybe because we don't fit in any
categorised metal genre, we play death, doom, 70's inspired heavy shit,
so for the stoner scene we are to much metal and for the metal scene we
might be to much stoner.....
We shared the stage with some cool
bands though, Disinterred are really cool guys and they're Entombed
influenced death is really great; other bands like Pentagram Chile,
Griftegard, Arkham Witch, just to name a few.

here in Belgium... I personally am not that active anymore as far as PR
and stuff, I'm the kind of guy that likes to sit back and relax with a
fine scotch and some cool tunes on my stereo....
