This is another of these bands that I know absolutely nothing about but still find interesting enough to interview. So read this interview with DEMIURGON. © 2016 Anders Ekdahl
When you release a new recording does it feel like you have to start a new a couple step back because so much time has passed and so many new bands have entered the scene since the last album or do you just pick up where the last one left?
-This is our first release as Demiurgon, we released 1 demo, 1 full length and 1 split as Hatred. Not used to follow new bands or trend, we have some bands inspired us as everyone but we always try to mix our influences with personal style and this is Demiurgon cocktail.
Do you have an aesthetic that you keep true to from recording to recording (i.e. stylistical same art work, lyrical theme etc.)?
-We don’t have it, I can say we are used to “touch” some similar topics with lyrics. Songs tell about the illness of this society forges humanity in the wrong way, pushing it toward the abyss with no return. War, religion, environment pollution, individualism and so on.
How hard is it to come up with lyrics to the songs? When do you know thst you have the right lyrics?
-Music is strong, in your face, so lyrics always fits with music. We don’t have a fixed modus operandi because all of us write lyrics, and everyone use his imprinting.
How hard is it to find the right art work? What are you looking for?
-Sometimes it’s not easy, because you always search for the perfect idea that has to catch the listener at the first glance, but it also has to portrays what’s inside the cd.
This time we decided to work with Par Oloffson because is an amazing artist we loved, and we took the right decision because together found immediately the perfect final solution
Do you ever feel that you get misinterpretated because of the metal you play?
-No never, I don’t think we play music could be misinterpretated
Do you feel that you get the recognition you deserve, nationally as well as internationally,
-Having new name we are considered a new band, so we need time to let people know us.
In Italy are well know because people followed us also as Hatred, abroad So far so go with reviews and response on line, we have some gigs planned for next year in europe and we’ll see what happen
Is the end of physical close by or is there a future for all formats?
I think in metal the physical releases will continue as it must be, because people are interested in having it in hands, but of course considering the past years things changed a lot. No one knows what will come
I get the impression that today’s touring scene is most made up of festivals or multiple band line-ups. Is it harder/tougher to tour today?
-There are loads of bands and more less the same clubs, people ( in Italy in particular ) rarely are interested in gonna to concert of underground music, abroad is not so bad. But you need time and luck to plan a tour and you have to know good people could be interested in your proposal.
If you were to decide how would the stage show look like?
-We play death metal so the stage is not so important, necessary is to have good P.A and do you dirty work on stage giving all your power
What does the future hold?
-We’ve just released a new song chainging some stuff compared with the album. Different tune and lyrics in italian, people seems to like it so we ‘ll see if it’s the right way to walk ok
