The name you choose is the name of a demon, do you claim any membership to a form of Satanist worship ?

What are your influences ? (music or anything else)
Thomas: I myself am inspired by dark movies and by life itself.
Music wise I could say
interview Lord Belial I'm inspired by bands such as Bathory, Slayer and Black Sabbath, I got a varied taste of music and my favoritebands changes frequently but these are bands that always stick with me.

Could you present us “Nocturnal Beast”?
Thomas: Nocturnal Beast is a dark epic black metal album concentrated on atmosphere and the gloomy aspect of life rather on satanism and blast beats.
All lyrics and music was created during the nocturnal hours and it was crucial to get the emotional sound in the material.

Are you satisfied with Regain Records?
Thomas: Regain Records is a really great label and we've had no problem with them what so ever.
Everything is working out really smooth.

How do you process to write your songs? Is it a work in common?

Who is the 68th Demon you invoke in the introduction of “Nocturnal Beast”?
Thomas: Belial

The cover of “Nocturnal Beast” is very impressive! What's the importance of the artwork for you when you release an album?
Thomas: For this album in particular it was very important since this is the first time presenting Belial in a visual form

This is the traditional question: the webzine I work for is called “Spirit-of-Metal”. What is this spirit for you?
