Strength and Creativity




Creating art is an intense process. No matter what your medium of your intent may be, you always come to a certain point when doubt tires to get the best of you. When fear temporarily obscures the core of your work. This fear is a beast with many heads, and it is all to easy to give in to its temptations.

Its most common form seems to be the fear of being judged. While creating something, you are in a safe area. It is just between you and your creation. But once you give that creation to the world, a lot of pressure arises. You begin to question the very creation that is so close to your heart, due to every minor thing someone has said, might say or will never say somewhere on the internet. 

And at this point you have to make a decision: do you want to give the opinions of others power over you? Do you want to spend your time feeling butthurt because someone has hurt your ego?
Or are you up to the challenge to rise above your insecurities and create art that truly comes from the heart? Are you going to be loyal to your ideals when facing Nigredo?

It most certainly takes commitment and self-discipline, even more so when facing adversity. It is my conviction that when you know deep down inside why you are doing what you are doing, no enemy can stop you. The biggest enemy one has to face lies within.
 Make him your friend, and your vision shall prosper.

The Thousandfold Epicentre by The Devil‘s Blood was unleashed upon the world exactly 7 years ago. Being a juxtaposition of love and death, the music takes you to orgasmic extasy in one moment and in its grim conclusion throws you into a deep abyss filled with the serpents of chaos.
Once the grandiose music has lured you in, there is no way of escaping the existential terror that lies beneath its surface.

It is a very dangerous album. Not for the obvious reasons, but because it actually tells you something.
