Interview: Khristenn Corpse (VEN)

Few weeks ago, arrived at Lachryma Christi's inbox an e-mail with promotional material from a Melodic Porn Black Metal band from Venezuela. Curiosity was too much, as well as the interest, and Lachryma Christi decided to give a listen to them and to interview them. So, if you haven't heard of Khristenn Corpse, here's your chance.

How did the name Khristenn Corpse come up?

KHRISTENN CORPSE came to the proverb “Khristenn corpus” all the essence of the Christians people in the sarcasm and sodomy… all these shit and plague this fucking world…

Khristenn Corpse started in 2003. Can you tell a bit of the story?

Precisely in the end of the year of 2002… the band started by the ideals of beleth rheblys & Lhysta.

You have described the band as Melodic Porn Black Metal. What do you mean by "Melodic Porn"?

Melodic porn is the essence of the black metal music in this band… ”Sex” is the total meaning of many biblical texts in the human history.

How is the Black Metal scene in Venezuela? How has your journey as a band been so far?

The black metal in Venezuela is in constant evolution, many bands, but nothing seriously in the music.
Khristenn Corpse plays in many cities of the country: Caracas, Zulia, Coro, Carora, Barquisimeto and many more cities.

Have you already played in other countries, like for example European countries?

No, ummm its soo great to be invited to play in another country, Europe is a great place to spread the Khristenn corpse music.

What are your influences? Am I wrong if i say Cradle of Filth are one of them?

Yeah, The old cradle of filth is a big influence into the band, but also other bands like Anorexia Nervosa, Carach Angren, Borknagar, Keep of Kalessin, Behemoth, Belphegor, Immortal, Dark funeral, Sycronomica, Welicoruss, Anaal Nathrakh.

What are your lyrics about?

The lyrics of Khristenn Corpse are written by the vocals LHYSTA, he expresses sodomy, witchcraft, Satanism and more reality (it's the principal concept of the band).

Can you tell a name of a band you would like to tour with?


A few weeks ago you were seeking a label. How are things going? Have you found what you were looking for?

Spread the KHRISTENN CORPSE in the world; it’s the principal mission of this band.

Is there any message you would like to leave to your followers and Black Metal followers in general?

Thanks you so much for listening to KHRISTENN CORPSE
