Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
The name "Black Salvation" was chosen for the bands permanent title because it's simply dark within itself, aswell the band is meant to be based upon spiritual satanism in truest form, lyrically and with its imagery. Bifrons started the band in late 2008, working on a demo in a small studio, that was later finished with bass & effects player Chris A. (Who came along in April 2010.) In mid November 2009, Black Salvation later on decided to join Mike Neste of death metal band Emulsified Flesh. After entering the band they worked on a split CD with two other black metal bands named Apotamkin and Satanic Impalement (now released). All material is available from Triumphant Art Records.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
Black Salvation is an "underground" (as many would call it) black metal band in the United States, that are musically influenced by other black metal bands and heavy metal bands. Also song writer of the band & leader, Bifrons, writes mostly about the earth in dying days & Christianity falling to its feet.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
The reason a metalhead should buy any of Black Salvations material is because we are taking a turn for a better sound with newer material & better quality, all inspired by the greatest. The band is full circle with what is coming next.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
Black Salvation has released their first demo "Black Salvation" and a split CD with two other underground black metal bands in the United States. Our material was produced & released by Bifrons.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Black Salvation was invited to be on a tour with pagan metal band Northern Fog towards December of this year. As for dates & places, no other information has been given. Black Salvation may or may not be touring, but we definately hope for the best.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
The reason the listed above should know about Black Salvation is because the music is to the band,unlike most black metal bands, unique & different. Take time to listen to the newer material that will be released in 2011 and you may have an idea. Black Salvation is a work of art & the members are willing to spend years to completely make the songs to THEIR liking. We don't make music conscious of what people would want to hear, we make music and hope they like it. It shouldn't be about people telling us what they want and we make it. It should be about what we make and the fans liking it.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
For the near future, Black Salvation is working on a full-length album called "Visions Of A Blood Red Moon" that will consist of 8 tracks. One of them is a rehearsal with only Bifrons and another is a re-recording of the song "Black Salvation." Every full-length will have a re-recording of a track from the demo (excluding the intro track).
