Αναφορικά με τη συζήτηση σας παραπάνω, παραθέτω ένα απόσπασμα συνέντευξης του Vicotnic σχετικά με το ιδίωμα και την εξέλιξη του.
DHG pushed experimentation in black metal, and you, as a songwriter, have not been credited enough for inspiring bands that think outside of Second Wave tenets. I'm interested to know what you think of the evolution of black metal since the 90s.
Well thank you very much, I really appreciate you saying so. You know, giving something back to our great genre is part of the equation. The genre gave me so much, so contributing something unique for the purpose of making it less stale is my way of moving it forward. Evolution ensures the survival of things. I don?t mean to diminish more traditional approaches to black metal, because what we do doesn't erase that, nor do we want to. But on the other hand, if every black metal musician chose to conform to one single recipe, you wouldn't have bands like DHG. Challenging any boundary?be it religious, political or musical ? is necessary. I think all the early 90s bands were originals. None of them sounded vaguely similar, so I guess I just continued on the path that was part of my nurturing. For my generation of musicians, plagiarism was the greatest sin, while a unique style showed traits of self-reliance and individualism. Today black metal is a sub-culture, when I started out it was more sect-like, in the sense that you really had to prove yourself in order to be part of it ? and believe me, you were always under scrutiny. Today you only have to show a love for the genre to be allowed in, so for better or worse, that?s a huge difference.
Υπογράμμισα δύο σημεία στα οποία θεωρώ πως συμπυκνώνεται πολύ ουσία. Πέρα από μουσική, νόρμες, riff, blastbeat.
Στη λογική μου, είναι ίδιον του BM να αμφισβητεί και να διευρύνεται.
Γι' αυτό και ίσως εγκολπώνονται σε αυτό κυκλοφορίες ηχητικά παράταιρες.
