5to1: 5 Q&A with Hungarian black metal perfectionists 'de profundis'


Finally a brand new edition of 5 Q&A interview series.
[of violence] sincerely hopes you would enjoy this one. Hungarian duo is back in 'action' after their quite long hiatus.
By the mean time before you move on to read the rest, maybe you'd like to hear the tracks from the EP. www.myspace.com/deprofundishu


1 Let's start with the 7 year hiatus and getting back together. What were the reasons to give that kind of a break? And what you guys missed most in that period of time?
- The main reason was that I finished a long relationship and I wanted to change my life. I got a job opportunity in London, so I made the move and left Hungary. I was going to stay for a year, maximum, but at the end it turned out to be 7 long years. Meanwhile, Yzokras was focusing on his studies, got diplomas in Hungarian and German languages and literature.
Well, I think what we missed the most was the lost oppurtunity of creation, but on the other hand we got time for developing our style and the band became more sophisticated.
So, basicly after I came back we immediately started to work on de profundis, again. We were full of ideas, I managed to put together a small home studio, so there was nothing in the world at this time that could have stopped us.
