Sulfur Ensemble Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

we spent years playing in HC, GC and DM bands... yeah so many years.. then, we decided to get slower, dirtier, heavier and more "evil-lish" ,so to speak...  we started the band, quickly...and here we are...

2.So far you have released one ep, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?

first of all, it is raw and real. a real fuzzy, muddy, heavy sound combined with hell-ish screams.

a down tempo sabbath worship, if so to name it..

3.Can you tell us a little bit more about the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

talking about ghouls, satan, dystopia and even marliyn monroe...we let you in to create your own imaginery. but we can explain a little bit more. daily hate is based on the story of george orwell, 1984. it's really strange that he saw the world of today 70 years ago. plea is about the idea of satan and promteheus are the same characters. karaçor is in turkish, it's about a geenie who's controlling a person and marilyn is about a marilyn monroe stalker.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Sulfur Ensemble'?

SULFUR is a very mystical element, it is mainly used in occult terminology, also. it is a part of nature but also a destructive element against nature, too... it is like opposites are ensembled! so ensemble is symbolising that kind of a unity...

5.What are some of the best shows that the band ha splayed so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

we perfomed with our previous bands so many times, but with SulfurEnsemble, we only had 1 gig...i must say; it was quite an experience for us because we played the slowest tunes & beats we were ever played.... compare to our previous bands, it was totally opposite!..we felt it is heaviest sound we ever had on stage , because when you get slower it is becoming heavier..this was fantastic!

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

 more gigs to promote EP I, then we'll be focusing on 2nd one....

7.The ep was released on 'Morbid Syndicate', can you tell us a little bit more about this label?

 we get a deal and they released our EP, nothing more to say...and i know the owner lives in Österreich.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of sludge, stoner, and doom metal?

 people are interested in us, which gives us a great feeling. when we released the EP on bandcamp, we weren't expecting anyone would pay money and download our music, but there are people from usa, germany, russia, england, greece and japan who downloaded the album, it's very surprising for us. we also received lots of good email from everywhere.

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

 we are willing to stay in fuzzed down tempo level...maybe more slower or darker...

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

as a sabbath worshipper; 2 words: Black SABBATH (same words go for 2nd Q)

11.How would you describe your views on Satanism?

nothing special, imaginery is sexy, that's it! it also looks cooler than any other religion on earth.

12.What are some of your non musical interests?

our guitar play is focusing on raising his son in spare time, no time left  for an "additional interest". also, bass player has the same interest, but more, he has a daughter and a son! the other two are focused on living single and travelling.

13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

play slow, die old! and thanx for the nice interview....
