Using voices, found objects, electronic processing, field recordings, and nonlinear synthesizers, the duo’s performances unfold through a process of improvisation. The structure of the performances, which is never premeditated, is inspired by the concept of ritual, imbued with intent and a sense of inevitability, yet allowing for risk and unpredictability to lead the scenario in new directions."

Babalith - The Dream Cycle
Released June 23, 2015

From Bandcamp:

"This is thee latest release from thee Portuguese projekt Babalith. After their superb ‘Inferno’ komes thee equally atmospherik ‘The Dream Cycle’, this time based upon thee works of HP Lovecraft!

An eklektik mixture of kompositions kreated using a variety of effekts and rekording tekniques that perfektly kompliments thee Lovecraftian theme!

From thee Artist:
"The Dream Cycle was constructed very slowly and took one year to travel from its idea to its conclusion, it was shaped in the shade of my dreams, as it once was by H. P. Lovecraft's. I wanted to capture those early stories of his because they weren't obvious in their terror: the intense horror that is ever present in each tale from Lovecraft's Dream Cycle is the dream awareness, the sensitivity living at the skin of the dream body. This I found worth to translate into a sound-atmosphere, and a reminder of what my music always meant."

[INTERVIEW] With Bathory Legion

Interview with  
Bathory Legion
from Ghost Box Radio
Bathory Legion is a ritual ambient/experimental/noise project from Italy. This music is visceral. Painful. Beautiful. Terrifying. Humble. BL's roots are in Black Metal but has moved into the esoteric realms of dark ambient.

BL has been in rotation on Ghost Box Radio since the beginning. A wonderful collaborator and very supportive in the community, BL runs the Planetaria Store -- an independent label and music resource.

[Haz] Who are you as an artist? What is your philosophy?
[BL] Bathory Legion, or BL. My philosophy is “Anarcoesoterismo” (Anarcho-Esoterism)

[Haz] You've transformed from Bathory Legion to BL. Why this change?
[BL] Logo and moniker was always composed by the only two letters BL, and originally was composed by two runes Berkana - Laguz, and I chose that moniker in 2005. Now it’s time to change because I’m ending the circle and want to explore another kinds of paths, but I will never change my beliefs.

[Haz] You've been making music for many years. What is your vision of the future?
[BL] Yeah I make music since 1995. My future will be about composing soundtracks, and deep experimental stuff, I don’t want to have nothing to do with some scenes anymore, too much dumbs inside the clubs, for example, and too much lousy labels. There’s a some interesting person as well, but I 'm putting an irreversible from that scenes.

[Haz] Which do you like better, studio work or playing live?
[BL] I hate play live as BL, because on stage I’m alone so I’m chained to my gear, I can’t move myself. Probably I’d like to perform live some BM tracks as vocalist as many years ago, in order to have the chance to express myself on stage without playing.

[Haz] When you play live, when do you know you have succeeded in the performance?
[BL] If the audience die.
If they did some cool comments after the gig , nice reviews, buy the merchandise, or stuff like that. Honestly, I’m not interested in their opinion, just if another musician or an Esoterist like my work and tell me I’m satisfied, because just another musician is able to comprehend the immense work behind one of my live-set, included the visual part.

[Haz] What is it like to see BL live? (What would I see and feel if I heard you perform live? Your live show seems ritualized. What is this ritual and what is its purpose?)
[BL] Yeah there are rituals. In my past shows I simple played in the dark, and I left the visuals I did and the music talked for me. I can’t stand people that do too much pics of me, for example. The purpose is to put a spell on some people, to curse some people and to wake some people. To help some people. It depends on the people.

[Haz] How does the esoteric play into your music?
[BL] My music is one of the expression of my esoteric path, So it’s truly important.

[Haz] What instruments do you play?
[BL] I play Drums, piano and key.

[Haz] When did you start making music?
[BL] I started to play piano when I was 5 year old and drums when I was 11

[Haz] When did you find your voice as an artist? (When did it became clear you were meant to do this? your "voice" is your unique style. Your artistic vision.)
[BL] When I was 5 year old, the first time I listened to Liszt and Goblin

[Haz] Where does your music come from?
[BL] Lucifer

[Haz] Do you have a muse?
[BL] Currently: yes, I think. But I’m not inspired by anyone in my music.

[Haz] Who is VERMIIN?
[BL] Vermiin is a futuristic black metal band formed by me and J. Stillings from Steel Hook Prostheses, and some guests like Nysrok from Alien Vampires which is my Brother since 1995. We did a debut album entitled “Spiritual Parasites”, the first imprint of Steel Hook Recordings of J. Stillings, distributed exclusively also by Malignant Records, Crucial Blast Records and my Planetaria Store.

[Haz] What is VERMIIN's vision?
[BL] Chaos, Lucifer, Occultism, extreme but experimental and innovative sounds. We don’t need to lift anyone, cause we are able to create something new. People will understand that work on the next 10 years probably.

[Haz] How was it working with John Stillings?
[BL] He’s a great person and a serious professional. I respect his works.

[Haz] Do you think you'll perform VERMIIN live?
[BL] No, I don’t think that will be possible because the band is formed by people from the US, Italy and the UK, but you never know.
