Who are you and what do you do in your band?
Deviaarth (Bass/Vocals), Tony (Rhythm Guitar)
When/where was your band formed?
The band was formed in October 2012 at Wacken open Air.
Why did you choose to play Death Metal?
Because in truth, death is the only certainty in life.
How do you compose your music? Does only one guy do everything or does everyone contribute?
Well, everybody has a contributing factor when it comes to writing songs.
Tell us about your lyrics, writing, inspiration etc.
Our lyrics are based mostly on a fictional world Deviaarth created, but sometimes he gets tired of the lore and writes exclusively about the gore.
Is there going to be new Narthraal material anytime soon?
We plan on stepping inside the studio again very soon, you may look forward to some very thrashy death metal in the near future!
How do you see the state of Death Metal music these days in your country and in general?
Death metal here in Iceland is unfortunately in short supply, thankfully those few bands still active are really good.
What are your long term plans as a band? What do you want to achieve?
To spread a message, I suppose…the world is pretty fucked up and some of us just want people to know that we’ve had enough of this bullsh*t.
Name an other Death Metal band from your country that everyone should hear.
Urðun, hands down..
We appreciate you giving us the time of day to listen to our story! And a word to all our death metal brothers and sisters out there: Stay brutal all the time!
