Interview with Dark Lord NecroKael - BK Magazine - October 2009
A short interview with Lord NecroKael - amongst other so called "fanatics" - in the latest issue of BK Magazine.
By chance * grin * they felt necessary to add a psychologist's analysis at the end...
Probably to reassure the simpleton, and limit as much as possible the dangerous temptation of individual tastes & self development.
Aw... Such a relief this necessary pseudo-scientific explanation !! Hehe...
Ends up in "This people need help immediately"... Mmmh... Weird way to put it... Missing just an "even against their own will" line and that'd be a lovely reminder of witch hunting in all it's forms, and other most brilliant hours of human history...

But what readers of BK Magazine will never get to read is Kael's initial conclusion, finally truncated by the editors. Here it is :
"...Now on a short note, for whoever's freaking out about Goth & Vampyre movements, keep in mind in most case really ignominious monsters in human history looked just like your average family man, watching football and wearing a tie at the office.
And instead of fearing a highly cultivated community just for the way members dress up, we should be much more suspicious about all this people who try so hard to look all the same...
This often results of mass manipulation, and can't do any good for the self development.
Ultimately frustrations lead to intolerance, violence and stupidity.
People capable of using their brains understand quite easily this concept..."

And why does editors need psychologists to "help" their readers define what's real or what is sane instead of letting 'em question themselves or trusting their own capacity to make an opinion ?...

Stigmatizing so called "freaks" in periods of intolerance & tragedies like Sophie Lancaster's (beaten to death for being a Goth by so very "normal" - psychologists approved ? - individuals) is such an example of wise and responsible behavior indeed.
Says it all in itself...

Interview's here
And honorable members of the Happy Family can follow consecutive debates on The Sanctuary forum's Inner Sanctum section (restricted area).

Resulting of the great inspiration and skills of Katrina and definitely bewitching modeling of Anne Chloe Choi, this is a simply another immediate cult.

Shiv-r - dark electronics between Bangkok and London
A word from this excellent formation members: "Lee Bulig (known for his projects Stark and Neon Womb) and Peter Crane (from The Crystalline Effect and Plague Sequence) have been collaborating and we are now able to lift the veil of secrecy from our new project: Shiv-r.
Shiv-r is a musical symbiosis and promises to be our darkest and most unique project yet.
Shiv-r.com is a central part of the project and is based on a regularly updated blog-format. Lee Bulig will be posting on things like life in Bangkok and body modification and I'll be posting on life in London and music-tech.
A maxi-single will go to pressing in the next few weeks, but in the meanitme check out the website, listen to the tracks, and let us know your thoughts."
