MARTYR WHORE

''as a lady orgasm multiply times by 100000000000000'. This night was a big surprise cause we were not programmed in the line up in Madrid'


19/09/2017, Sophi KATZ


Martyr Whore is a French goth / post-punkband and they saw the light as a band in the mid 90s. Playing deathrock a la Christian Death's original style.
In 1995 they released an album entitled "Roseydolvelt Ballet" on Germany´s Apollyon label, home of bands like The Last Dance, Engelsstaub, Ikon and Madre Del Vizio. A second album was planned to be released in 1996 but that never happened. Then, in 2002, they put out a self-released album with the 1996 original recordings entitled "The Blue Coresh Nietzsche Malsaine". In 2017 they released the album “SS SATAN” as a limited edition.

Catch them while you can live in Poland at Return To The Batcave Festival 2017. A line up with many other good bands, classics and newer bands.

Lloyd Amant: vocals, bass
Hendrick Gerace: guitar
David Boniol: drums

Let’s shake, rattle and roll…

How did you came up with the name Martyr Whore?

We wanted to create an anti-sect, anti-christianity band when we listened to Christian Death's "only theatre of pain" the first time. We wanted a virgin art without christianity value. Martyr and his opposite whore (we used to listen to the first album of Hole, Teenage Whore)

Which bands or artists have affected you the most so far?

Nietzsche, Christian Death and Rozz Williams Shadow Project. Super Heroines, 45 Grave, Sex Pistols, The Adverts, The Sisters of Mercy, Joy Division, The Cure, New Model Army, My Bloody Valentine, Mephisto Walz, This Mortal Coil, Kurt Cobain, The Smiths, Fear Cult, Black Sabbath, Jimmy Hendrix, Sepultura, Cannibal Corpse, Gainsbourg, Beethoven, Bizet, Chopin, Siouxie And The Banshees, The Ramones, Rosetta Stone, The Doors, Velvet Underground, Das Ich, Ministry...

What are your songs about and do you hold back things you would like to scream out or you just go for it?

In the 90s, the first album's songs were about delirium tremens and death of reality, death of appearences. Edgar Poe's delirium tremens Ligeia necrophily romance. God is dead, I am crying my dead god. Nihilism, no future in this way. The second album, The Blue Koresh Nietzsche Malsaine's songs were about David Koresh and his sect in Waco. The Manson family (Susan on Blair) apocalypse 19. Gitane Monroe Nietzsche's law against christianity.

Have you ever been in other bands before?

No

Would you like to start another band or project alone or with others? In which genre?

Martyr Whore is enough actually. Deathrock for ever but new projects in occasion…to make money in punk, techno, electro, rap, black, metal, disco, rock’n’roll, dj scracth ….yeah why not….

Which kind of music do you like more? Any guilty pleasures you want to share with us?

Antique music, Haendel.

Which instruments do you play and which instruments would you like to learn to play?

I play guitar and bass. I wish I could play the harp.

How is the atmosphere in France for a band like yours to perform your show?

Impossible. In France deathrock does not exist. So we don't even try to perform in France. Metal rules in France, too many superficial batcave bands production made metal the king of France. Also rap music got his crown, techno, electro and graphist band.

Are you more inspired during the day or during the night to write lyrics and make music?

Anytime while I make love...

Are you working on a new album we can expect soon?

We recorded "SS SATAN" our last album in auto prod April 2017, weak production but great tracks as Living Dead, Harley Quinn, Cesare Borgia, Jason Vorhees, The Devils Renaissance, The birth of Tragedy, Henri Heine Hard, Harry Festen, Yarbles Witches...

If it was up to you would you like to release music on CDs, vinyl or cassette and why?

Vinyl is the best, cassette why not ? CDs yeah.

People that don't know Deathrock, Goth or Punk are kind of scared of it or have a weird vision of it, how do you think they come to such a way of thinking?

Rozz Williams did not get so famous in the beginning of the 90s, he was in the underground music at the end of the 90s. Industrial goth metal music rules as Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Rammstein, Korn, Linkin Park, Marilyn Manson took the crown from Rozz Williams. Rozz Williams has been cruxified by his own friends and finished in gossip goth as a junkie gay without talent. Deathrock bands must get attention from industrial goth bands, sometimes they are good for us as Fear Cult sometimes they destroy us as Marilyn Manson.

Who you would like to direct and shoot the music videos if you could choose?

Christian Death's only theatre of pain. It’s a shame there are no music video. Shadow Project.

Any artists who you would like to collaborate with for the cover of your music album?

Johnny Rotten, Nina Hagen, Mazzy Star Valor, Ennio Morricone, Siouxie, Eva O, Skrillex, Mr Oizo, Dopplereffekt, Japanese Telecom and this one is tricky, Charles Manson if he ’s still alive.

How is it going on stage and what was the most memorable night and why?

Martyr Whore on stage in Madrid '95 festival (mise noire). In the line up, Mephisto Walz, cannot describe, 'as a lady orgasm multiply times by 100000000000000'. This night was a big surprise because we were not programmed in the line up in Madrid, we were the surprise of this festival and people were hysterical because we were that thing they didn't expect, a new breath, anti christianity, dionysos, orgy, Nietzsche's interpretation by a French n****. It was quite new with deathrock (Christian Death, only theatre of pain)

With which bands would you like to go on tour?

Any band who offer us to share a big tour with a lot of dates and we sign immediately with them.

In which country would you like to play when you are on tour and do you prefer to play for a small audience or big audience and festivals or in a club?

Deathrock in Brazil is ok, Spain, Italy, California, Los Angeles sure. Big audience, in the hell of a fest or in a club, why not?

What are your personal thoughts on our subculture these days? What would you like to see differently or do you prefer that it stays as it is?

Subculture with new media as facebook, myspace, youtube ???? Graphic designers still rules as commercial sport music, it’s good and bad for the war inside subculture. MTV is dead. People in France do not want to hear about culture as Hanns Johst in Schlageter. They like their job and distraction and the way they sleep. I do not want change. When I see a stupid guy or a stupid girl I hope he or she is gonna be more stupid or more human.

Tell us your most beautiful dream or the worst nightmare you had?

My most beautiful dream, I watched Nietzsche dancing. My worst nightmare, Lyon a French city….no music…no art….just cash and convictions rules…..as in a colony.

If you could dress a famous person to your personal taste who would you pick and how would you dress that person?

Justin Bieber in Angela Merkel's underwear. Macron the new French president dressed in officer Stalline clothes.

Do you see dancing shadows at night that whisper melodies in your ear?

No sorry, no dancing shadows but sleepwalkers, walking on Rozz his voices….have to talk to my doctor called Nietzsche.
