A dark, enlightening foresight into the future of humankind dictated by singer/songwriter Nathan Opposition.

Interview: Nathan Opposition from Ancient VVisdom on A Deathlike Inferno, Aleister Crowley, and mankind’s obsession with apocalyptic prophecies

May 29th, 2012

Prior to their recent show at the OBL in London, Nathan Opposition from Ancient VVisdom took time out of his machete-sharpening schedule to trade a few words with Hugh Platt.

Nathan Opposition is a quietly-spoken man. Given that Nathan is an intimidating hulk of man, who gives off the kind of innate, physical menace that you only get from people who got neck tattoos back before the time they were a mark of a hipster fashionista, it puts us weirdly off-balance as we chat to the Ancient VVisdom frontman in a dressing room above the Old Blue Last. Still, it doesn’t stop us from grilling the chain-rattling, machete-waving vocalist on the subject of the band’s forthcoming new album – currently going under the working title of A Deathlike Inferno – as well as the finer points of Thelemic mysticism and philosophical Satanism.

October 13th, 2011

If you’re unfamiliar with Ancient VVisdom, there are only two things you really need to know about them. Firstly, they achieve something we used to think was impossible – they manage to make acoustic guitars sound evil. Secondly, they love, LOVE spelling their name with that pair of ‘V’s. We can’t stress that second fact enough. When guitarist/vocalist, Nathan Opposition, emailed us their responses for this interview, he used it every time he needed to use a ‘W’. Every time. Go on – count how many times he uses a ‘W’ in his answers. Go on. Actually, we’ll save you the time – it’s seventeen. We changed them all before we published though, because it was doing our nut in.
