Hello Mr. Fire and congratulations for excellent Elgibbor
last work "Repent Or Perish" (even if the favourite of our staff site is
Hell"). Why this strong title? In which way can you describe the lyrics?
The title comes from an urgency to tell the people of this world that
it's time to make a decision to repent or to perish. Time is running out
and we all need to make a decision before it's too late. The lyrics all
come either from personal experiences or from the Bible. God is always
my inspiration for the words and the music of my songs.
What is the meaning of Elgibbor’s name? Can you give a short
description of the project please?
Elgibbor means "God Almighty" in Hebrew. Elgibbor is a solo project with
a vision to reach the lost for Christ through music that reaches in to
the darkest places and shines the light of His love.
At musical level what are main influences, about you? What are
your favourite christian and secular metal albums?
My influences always come from Jesus. He is the air that I breath and He
knows what will reach the
hearts of the people that listen to this type of music. Some of my
favourite christian bands are Drottnar, Arvinger, Antestor, Crimson
there are too many to name them all. I don't listen to secular metal
bands, I haven't listened to them for many many years only because I
believe in listening to music that speaks truth and does not spill out
lies of the enemy.
How is the process of songs composition in Elgibbor?
God inspires me to write the music. I spend lots of time in my studio
going over chords and melodies. Then once the music is created I ask
Jesus for the lyrics that are to go with the song. Then, by His grace,
the song comes together.
Future’s band plan?
We will see... whatever Jesus' direction will be! To reach the lost for
Which is your opinion in Poland extreme christian and secular
The secular metal scene is very popular. The Christian
scene is still being discovered but there are very few metal bands who
are professed Christians producing Christian music.
Some words about your work in Fire Throne? Which is your
present relation with Unblasphemer?
Fire Throne was a band with the same vision as Elgibbor. Fire Throne
stopped playing together when I relocated and it became to hard to get
together to record albums. Unblasphemer is a close friend of mine and we
are always in contact. He is my brother in Christ and we hope to work
together again someday.
Some suggestions for people that start to listen and play unblack
They must know that the biggest difference between Black metal and
Unblack metal is the inspiration and lyrics. Our inspiration comes from
pure TRUTH and from the Word of God. They must understand that music is
not just a beat or rhythm. It is spiritual and depends highly on
life and inspiration of the one who is writing/singing/playing it.
way you became a christian extreme musician?
play in secular metal bands quite often. When I gave my life to the
Lord He revealed to me that he had given me a gift and that I was to use
that gift to help others that were stuck in the same lifestyle that I
had been living in all those years.
In a lot of albums recorded in many projects, which is your
favourite and why?
My favourite project would have to be Fireland. I really had a great
time recording this album. There are a lot of lyrics taken from Psalm
119 which is my favourite passage in the Bible.
Elgibbor is an one man project, so the live activity is
impossible; Elgibbor will be a really band, sooner or later?
I would always like for Elgibbor to become a full band but it would have
to be God's will for everything to work out according to His plan.
At last a greetings for italian fans and readers of WhiteMetal.it
I love italian food, and God bless you all!!!
Strong in the Lord!!
