Quick Introductory Interview.

Interview with DIONYSIAQUE.
1. Who are you and how did the band get started?

N. C.: As stated in our biography, here is what DIONYSIAQUE, it is an unorthodox Doom Metal band that stands for: « As a god of wine, Dionysos was known as Psychodaiktes ‘Destroyer of the Soul’, and Hypnophobes ‘Terrifier during Sleep’ - but also Luaios ‘Deliverer from Care’, Theoinos ‘Exhilarator’, and even Iatros ‘the Healer’ - Bramshaw, Dionysos Formed on the 31st of July 2014 by L.B and N.C to summon the primordial fire of Dionysos, the band DIONYSIAQUE is here to convey the listeners to haunting and exhilarating dimensions. The first and nameless demo of the twice born deity worshippers is to be released on cassette, through the mysterious ways of La Fin du Monde recordings in May 2018. It is the essence of a band without boundaries, as uncertain as life itself can be. Now drink yourself into a stupor and dive into the maze of all and nothing. The band consists of the following people: L.B : incisive strings of dreadful pleasures N.C : chants of grim life and death G.P : chthonic vibrations of doom A.D : death by the hammers R.M : chords of the damned

2. Why did you choose Doom, and how would you describe your style?

N.C.: Our tastes in music range on a very wide spectrum, but slow and heavy pace is definitely something that gathers us when it comes to music. It felt pretty natural to play Doom Metal. Plus, I feel very comfortable with my voice within this style.

3. What would you consider to be the high point of your career so far?

N.C.: Taking years before we would release our first demo. This really mattered a lot for us to find our own style and to make it grow until we came up with a solid recording.

4. Which three bands most influenced you?

N.C.: 3 would not be enough. From the filthy and rampant noise of HELLHAMMER, to the horrifying harmonies of the doomiest side of AUTOPSY, the haunting and eerie feeling of BLACK HOLE and the slow Heavy Metal of CANDLEMASS, or the twisted universe of EVIL SPIRIT, we vibrate and get possessed instantly, even after the thousandth time.

5. What are your plans for the near future?

N.C.: We have two gigs in June and July 2018. We want to play seriously as much as possible. We would love to play with our comrades in EVIL SPIRIT and HEAD OF THE DEMON.

6. If there is anything you would like to add, the last words are yours.

N.C.: Thanks for your work, time and dedication to Doom Metal. This is what we breeze as well. We hope our music will speak to you.
