Eternal Wisdom (Germany)
T: Why the name of Eternal Wisdom? Any special meaning?
EW: As I formed the Band I wrote the book “The Little Book of Eternal Wisdom” by the mystic Heinrich Suso. At this point I must make mention that I will chance the name to “Buried in a Womb” for the next album coming in 2017. There are some style changes, so I think it´s the best to work under a new banner.
T: Eternal Wisdom is a band from a single person (Johannes Tullner)
So complicated what do everything in a band?
EW: It´s absolutely great to run a one-man-band because it´s pure self-realization. Sure, the studio work is longer than in normal bands but for me it works and it is worth it.
T: The lyrics of your songs try to themes of cabbalism, hermeticism and theosophy. We can
EW: In the past I was very into the whole occult and theosophical stuff but in the meantime my interests have changed. The next album is more about existentialism and nihilism and this was the reason for the name change as well. The lyrics of the next album are a story about a child which is living into an existential vacuum and suffer by deprivation.
T: Have been part of the band Thrash Metal Blooddawn burning even CD. "Metallic Warfare"
Why the band disintegrated?
EW: We disbanded at the wrong time. We released the debut album and signed a deal with the polish label Mad Lion Records. After that, we split up. But at this time the most members, me included, had no more pleasure to still running the band.
T: The debut of Eternal Wisdom was "... "Of Eternity". That such were the comments?
Then come his second CD". Meditation of the cleansing fire"as you did with this?
What can you tell us?
EW: The first two records were very melodious and strongly influenced by Naglfar, Sacramentum or Dissection. I think that both albums are cool records but it´s definitely not the best stuff I wrote.
T: Why do decide to change to a third CD with more death thrash metal influences?
EW: Primarily I´m a big fan of 80´s Thrash and 90´s Death Metal. As I said, the first two albums was solid records but the harsh aggression was missing. That was the reason to combine the Swedish melodic metal with Thrash and Death Metal. But I´m open minded for more different Influences. The next Album is influenced by crust core music for example. It sounds like Dissection meets Skitsystem.
T: The third CD. Does 'Pathei Mathos' influences that bands?
EW: I would say old Sepultura, old Pestilence and stuff like that.
T: That you can tell us about the issues of the CD. 'Pathei Mathos'?
EW: There are some copies left but the whole album is available as free download from the bandcamp page as well.
T: I read that they have released a new CD. Titled "In Infinitum" not what is heard, but I can say that style have?
EW: “In Infinitum” was the first album I wrote for Eternal Wisdom in 2006. I recorded a demo of “In Infinitum” but I never released it because the sound was terrible. I edited the recordings and re-recorded some parts. I released it in April this year. You could say it´s like the Goatlord album of Darkthrone. It was important for me to release that Album because it represents my beginnings.
T: Which are your favorite bands from Germany olds and news?
EW: This is hard. I would say my favorite old German bands are Protector, S.D.I. or Assassin.
New Bands? Nothing! I´m stuck in the past.
T: Some final words for the readers of The Legion of TchorT Zine and Where our readers can buy their merchandise?
