I've tried to be a little bit different from the mainstream and to follow my own path, as much as possible. I changed everything between The Rebirth of the Middle Ages and The End of the World because I was so fed up with that black metal clichés. Too much bands. It was not interesting anymore. The difference between 'The End of the World' and 'Deliverance' is less important. But there is a big evolution again. I go on my way, still further from the metal clichés in general, I guess. I try to do something a bit more original, and something which represents what I am and what I feel.Duke Satanaël / Godkiller interview, Krepuskulum, 2000
GODKILLER released their second and final album, Deliverance, on this day in 2000 through Wounded Love.
I still listen to metal today, but less than before. But I've always listened to quite a lot of other music styles [...] I listened to new wave and gothic before listening to metal. In the second half of the eighties, I was a goth. I've listened to electronic and industrial music for many years. Godflesh and Ministry were the first bands I listened to in that music style. Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, Foetus, Die Krupps, etc. I was more fond of that kind of music than metal, and I'm still.Duke Satanaël / Godkiller interview, Krepuskulum, 2000
"I am a stranger in the earth" is a sentence taken from the Psalm 119. For me, it seems that I'm not where I should have been (but there is no other world: I don't believe in a better or a worse world; this world is like this, that's it, this is the only one). What am I doing here? I don't like most of the things that people like. To feel different as much as this is sometimes so painful. Sometimes I'd rather be so common. Have a work, a wife, a house... but these things bother me so much!Duke Satanaël / Godkiller interview, Krepuskulum, 2000
