Deeper Vileness Band Talk About His Latest Music hiatus

Can you tell us a bit about the history of Deeper Vileness and what led to the band’s decision to go on hiatus?

The history of Deeper Vileness is a long one full of many ideas but many waiting periods between where I either had or did not have instruments to record. The ideas for the first few releases have been there since years ago and the band will move forward in the original direction once hiatus ends, which is very soon. The bands decision to go on hiatus was due to the whole pandemic happening. I had stopped making music during this time and some of my recording gear got ruined in storage and the band has been on hiatus ever since. I have also been very busy in general in the past 2 years.

After a period of hiatus, what inspired you to bring Deeper Vileness back and start working on music again?

Deeper Vileness needs to begin making music again and I feel the need to be creative. It has been too long saying oh the album will come out soon, well now the time to work on the debut album is becoming a priority. Expect an extended play before that happens though, I want to continue with my original release ideas, dark, gothic, medieval fantasy metal music.

How would you describe the sound and style of Deeper Vileness? Are there any specific influences or themes that you draw upon in your music?

The sound and style for the band have been worked upon in prior releases, but now my song writing is solid and I can play to the level I want for the new releases that will be coming out. Influences have always remained the same for the band, Venom, Bathory, Sodom, Dissection, etc. Themes for the band have mostly been about medieval history, fantasy, magick, necromancy, stuff like that and there will be a big focus on the theme with the next EP and debut album. It will follow a story the way King Diamond tells stories in his music. Not exactly concept album but definitely a theme.

With three demos, two EPs, and a split album already released, what can fans expect from the upcoming music of Deeper Vileness? Are there any new elements or directions you plan to explore?

Quality, consistency and the new elements will be guitar solos. I’ve also grown up and I got the whole wanting to take photos in the woods in corpse paint thing out of my system. There’s this concept for vocals I’ve had for a while doing layers of vocals for atmosphere. It will also be fusing some of the old atmosphere with this new style, lots of keyboard playing.

Are there any changes or developments within the band’s lineup or creative process that you’d like to share?

As of right now the band is just me, Kadesh Vega. Someone put that my real name is “gerald vega” on my metallum, I have no idea why, my name is literally Kadesh Vega, everyone assumes I use a pseudyonym like a lot of black metal bands. I don’t.

How do you envision the future of Deeper Vileness? Are there any specific goals or milestones you hope to achieve with the band?

I honestly feel that I’ll start getting label release offers after the next EP comes out because I will be doing a lot of advertising online and stuff, hopefully this happens because the album should deserve attention, everyone caters to European bands because they are from Europe and all these promotional youtube channels have ALWAYS refused to promote Deeper Vileness. The only goal or milestone I hope to acheive is getting the recognition the band deserves.

As a black metal band, what do you believe sets Deeper Vileness apart from other bands in the genre? What makes your music unique?

With the last release people can hear the sound has gotten a lot more gothic, a lot more eerie, I don’t hear many people using piano / synth throughout songs the way the band has. I also play all my stuff, I don’t do programmed keyboards like some bands do. I think what makes the band unique is that I don’t care much for the traditional black metal labels and I’m open to experimenting with the music. I’m a metal head, I know what I like out of metal and make music that I would want to listen to.

Can you share any details about your songwriting and recording process? How do you approach crafting the atmosphere and mood of your music?

I study the occult. Working on a release is a magickal act, a ritual for me. I’ve starved myself during periods of recordings a sort of mortification while working on evovcations of spirits. How I work on atmosphere and mood is by like layering, guitar, more guitar, then synths and keys.

Have there been any challenges or obstacles that you’ve faced as a band, and how have you overcome them?

Financial obstacles for sure. It’s taking me a while to get recording gear together, and basically I am overcoming these issues as time goes by. There is also the obstacle that no one promotes the band. If anyone want’s to download the music that is online on bandcamp right now and put it up on youtube, THANK YOU, I appreciate those who have. Being a black metal band, which is not a term I want to use anymore, has also been an obstacle because in black metal, your band is on it’s own, and what I mean by that is it’s just your band, there’s no big scene, there’s no like support system. Bands release music because they like making music, not because they plan on touring and selling albums and all this stuff. For me metal is metal, I like listening to Judas Priest, Deicide, Immortal on the same play list. Good music is good music and I don’t really care for labels at this point. For as many good black metal bands there are in black metal, really great bands that have come out and been completely different, there are the hundreds of Darkthrone cosplayers always coming out with music and I don’t want to be grouped in with that.

Finally, what message or experience do you hope to convey to your listeners through the music of Deeper Vileness? What do you want them to take away from your music?

I am thankful to all the people who have supported my music. I hope to make a quality album and offer the metal world something original and interesting to listen to.
