This is a brief interview with the black metal band Mo’ynoq (North Carolina, U.S.). The music is generally fast, blasting with headbanging moments in abundance and the vocals are equally extreme. The album, surprisingly, is an independent release by the band. It is called Dreaming in a Dead Language and it was published back in January of 2019. It features the following songs: 1.Empyreal Decay ; 2.The Collector; 3.These Once Tranquil Grounds; 4.Doomed to Endure; 5.Carve My Name; 6.Witness to the Abyss; and 7.Buried by Regret, for a total time of 37:04. According to Metal Archives the band is: Devin on bass and vocals; Justin on drums; Don on guitars and vocals; and Logan on guitars and vocals. youtube.com/watch?v=6snmVW7dw7w. Is there an ideological agenda (the environment, liberalism, etc.) to your music? We would like to view ourselves solely as vessels for the music. Our or anyone else’s political views are irrelevant to appreciating the art. Our music primarily deals with our own emptiness, suffering and anxieties which hopefully translates to an emotional resonance deeper than a mere relation to some clique or social agenda. What do you think of the reception to your music so far? How can fans support your band? The response to the album has been far beyond anything that we’ve expected. We learned a ton during the writing and recording process - as well as everything else that comes with releasing it independently.
