Genre: Black Metal
Mgła is a black metal project formed in 2000, using rather rough and organic form of expression within the genre. Reason is personal aesthetic preference and conviction that this type of sound can fulfill the vision the most. Conceptual content ranges from nihilism to mysticism and provides comments rather than statements.
Mgła has not performed live for approx. first 10 years of existence and operated as studio project only. This changed in 2012 and we since then we’ve been performing roughly once per month. Primary reason for playing live is will to perform music in complete band setting. Attempt was made after Kriegsmaschine essentially became a studio project; roles switched as Kriegsmaschine used to operate as “band” and Mgła as “project”. Number of live performances is somehow limited, yet still significantly larger than originally expected. This is simply due to much higher interest that anticipated. Presentation of Mgła live is simple to the point of unattractive. We do not use any symbolism or other “hints” how to interpret as most natural response is the most welcome. Everyone is encouraged to think for themselves.
