A few questions – interview with Brutal Death Metal band from Spain - DYING.

for english please scroll down

Ave, can you introduce your band to our readers? – When was it founded and what style of music do you play , etc. ? 

BIEN, DYING SE FORMO EN EL AÑO 2000 EMPEZANDO COMO TRIO, ACTUALMENTE LA COMPONEMOS; FERNANDO Y PEPE A LAS GUITARRAS, ANGEL A LA VOZ, TONY A LA BATERIA Y PABLO AL BAJO, MENCIONAR TAMBIEN A MIGUEL, QUE PARTICIPO EN TODO EL PROCESO DE NUESTRO NUEVO ALBUM Y QUE DECIDIO ABANDONAR LA BANDA JUSTO ANTES DE EDITARLO. EN CUANTO A LOS ESTILOS QUE HEMOS PRACTICADO VAN DESDE UN THRASH/DEATH DE LOS COMIENZOS, UN DEATH METAL OLDSCHOOL DE NUESTRO PRIMER ALBUM Y HASTA EL BRUTAL DEATH DE LA ACTUALIDAD. EL ESTILO DE LA BANDA VA EVOLUCIONANDO CON EL PASO DEL TIEMPO Y CON LA INCORPORACION DE NUEVOS MIEMBROS, APORTANDO CADA UNO SU FORMA DE ENTENDER LA MUSICA, SIEMPRE MANTENIENDO UN NUCLEO “DEATH“.


Where and under what conditions were you recording the new album? Who was in charge of sound, production and mastering?

EL ALBUM SE GRABO EN SEVILLA DURANTE EL 2015/16. RUBEN RODRIGUEZ, DE NEBURZONE PRO. ES UN FAN NUESTRO DE SIEMPRE, ES UN AUTENTICO FANATICO DEL METAL EXTREMO Y TIENE CONOCIMIENTOS DE EDICION Y GRABACION Y MUCHA EXPERIENCIA EN VIDEO TAMBIEN, LOGRAMOS LLEGAR A UN ACUERDO Y NOS PUSIMOS A TRABAJAR JUNTOS, CON EL GRABAMOS, MEZCLAMOS Y MASTERIZAMOS EL DISCO, LA VERDAD ES QUE HA SIDO UN PLACER TRABAJAR CON EL, TECNICAMENTE ENTIENDE BASTANTE DEL TEMA, Y NO FUE DIFICIL ENTENDERSE CON EL.



How many copies were released and which medium was used for this new edition (CD, digital, vinyl, cassette)? 

SEVARED RECORD LANZO 500 COPIAS DE NUESTRO ALBUM “NO MERCY FOR US“ Y MORE HATE PRODUCTIONS LANZO OTRAS 500 COPIAS CON UN DVD EXTRA DE UN DIRECTO QUE REALIZAMOS EN SEVILLA. LAS DOS EDICIONES HAN SIDO EN FORMATO CD Y EDITADAS EN EL MES DE ABRIL DE ESTE AÑO. EN CUANTO OTROS FORMATOS, CLARO, ESTAMOS ABIERTOS A CUALQUIER POSIBILIDAD Y NOS ENCANTARIA TENER UNA EDICION EN VINILO O INCLUSO EN CASSETTE, PERO NECESITAMOS UN SELLO DISPUESTO A ELLO, ASI QUE, SI ALGUNO NOS ESTA LEYENDO, QUE SE PONGA EN CONTACTO CON LA BANDA.


Who is the author of the lyrics and how were they created and about what do the lyrics deal with? 

EL CREADOR DE LAS LETRAS HA SIDO ANGEL, VOCALISTA DE LA BANDA, CADA LETRA ES DISTINTA, NO ESTÁN RELACIONADAS ENTRE SI Y SI CON EL TITULO DEL ALBUM, SON DISTINTOS PUNTOS DE VISTAS Y DE DIFERENTE TEMÁTICA, HAY LETRAS QUE HABLAN DEL MUNDO APOCALÍPTICO COMO LA ARRIVAL OF DECADENCE CON UN ENFOQUE “LOVECRAFNIANO“, Y EL TAMBIEN APOCALÍPTICO STOP BREATHING, CON LA VISIÓN DE UNA MADRE CON UN NIÑO EN BRAZOS QUE DEJA DE RESPIRAR, TAMBIEN TENEMOS LETRA DE TEMATICA SOCIAL COMO EN THRONE OF LIES, QUE NOS HABLA DE TODOS LOS CERDOS QUE CONTROLAN EL PODER DE ESTE MUNDO Y DE COMO NOS MANIPULAN A SU ANTOJO, E INCLUSO LETRAS REALES COMO ES EL CASO DE LAS CANCIONES CHRONICLES OF INSANITY, QUE VA DE UNOS SANGRIENTOS HECHOS VERÍDICOS DE UN PARANOICO DEL CUAL, TAMBIEN TENEMOS UN VIDEOCLIP, Y HUMANS QUE NOS DA UNA DESCRIPCIÓN DE LA HUMANIDAD DE LA FORMA MAS TERRIBLE. PU-239 QUE VERSA DEL UN DE UN INCIDENTE NUCLEAR COMO EL QUE PASO EN CHERNOBIL Y QUE SE DIJO QUE NUNCA MAS SE REPETIRÍA (ESTA LETRA SE ESCRIBIÓ DESPUÉS DE LO QUE PASO EN FUKUSHIMA), CUANDO AL FINAL SE VOLVIÓ A REPETIR EN JAPON, PU-239 ES EL TIPO DE PLUTONIO QUE SE LIBERO AQUEL DIA Y QUE TARDA EN DISIPARSE 24000 AÑOS. TORTURER GOD HABLA DE UN PÁRROCO QUE PONE EN PRACTICA SUS INSTINTOS MAS BAJOS EN SU PROPIO SOTANO, TAMBIEN TENEMOS FROM CHRYSALIS TO WORM QUE NOS HABLA DE LA TRANSFORMACIÓN DE UNA PERSONA EN MONSTRUO POR UN CONTAGIO Y DE COMO LA SOCIEDAD LO RECHAZA, DE ESTE TEMA TAMBIEN HAY UN NUEVO VIDEOCLIP GRABADO CON NEBURZONE PRODUCCIONES. 


Who created the logo of the band, and who took care of the graphics and the website? What about you and social networks? Do you consider these things important? 

EL LOGO FUE CREADO POR ANGEL CUANDO TODAVIA NO ERA MIEMBRO DE LA BANDA. TAMBIEN DISEÑO UNA CAMISETA DEL TEMA EXISTENCE MISGIVINS DE NUESTRO PRIMER ALBUM BORN FROM IMPURITY, SI OBSERVAIS LOS DOS DIBUJOS SON MUY OLDSCHOOL, COSA QUE A ANGEL LE ENCANTA Y A NOSOTROS TAMBIEN. LAS REDES SOCIALES, SI SE MANEJAN BIEN, SON MUY IMPORTANTES PARA DAR A CONOCER A NUESTROS FANS EL TRABAJO Y TAMBIEN PARA INTERACTUAR CON ELLOS. SOBRE TODO A NIVEL UNDERGROUND SON MUY IMPORTANTES PARA LA PROMOCION DE LAS BANDAS EN GENERAL, DIRIAMOS QUE SI, QUE SON IMPORTANTES. EN LA BANDA NOS ENCARGAMOS TODOS EN GENERAL DE LAS REDES, Y A LA VEZ, NUESTROS SITIO WEB, ES UNA RED SOCIAL TAMBIEN.

Which label did you choose for releasing your album and why this label? Are you satisfied by how your label represents you and takés care about you? Did you send your record to some Labels - which are the labels? How was the response?

ESTO ES TODO MUY UNDERGROUND, QUIERO DECIR, TENEMOS QUE OPTAR A TODO Y A VER QUE NOS SALE, POR LO TANTO TANTEAMOS VARIOS SELLOS DEL RAMO AQUI EN ESPAÑA Y EN EL EXTRANJERO, EN ESPAÑA Y PORTUGAL HUBO CIERTO INTERES PERO AL FINAL NO SE PUDO LLEGAR A UN ACUERDO. EN USA, SEVARED RECORD ES COMO UNA INSTITUCION EN EL MUNDILLO UNDERGROUND DEL ESTILO ASI QUE, ESA ERA UNA MUY BUENA OPORTUNIDAD PARA DARNOS A CONOCER EN AQUELLA PARTE DEL CHARCO Y A NIVEL INTERNACIONAL. CON MOREHATE PRO. TANTO DE LOS MISMO, UN SELLO POCO CONOCIDO POR ESTOS LARES PERO QUE TIENE YA SU IMPORTANCIA EN TODA LA PARTE ORIENTAL DEL GLOBO, ADEMAS NOS HAN EDITADO UN DVD QUE TENIAMOS GRABADO, Y ESO ES GENIAL PARA NOSOTROS. ESTAMOS MUY CONTENTOS CON LOS DOS SELLOS Y CON LA ACOGIDA GENERAL DEL DISCO.


Which bands do you idolise and where do you get your inspiration?

BUENO YO NO LLAMARIA IDOLATRAR SI NO ADMIRAR, ADMIRAR EL GRAN TRABAJO QUE HACEN BANDAS COMO SUFFOCATION, NILE, INMOLATION, Y OTRAS MUCHAS QUE INEVITABLEMENTE NOS INSPIRAN, AUNQUE SIEMPRE BUSCAMOS ORIGINALIDAD EN NUESTRAS COMPOSICIONES. ES QUIZAS LO MAS DIFICIL, SER ORIGINALES SIN PERDER LA ESENCIA DEL BRUTAL DEATH, PERO PARA ESO ESTAMOS, PARA CURRARNOS LOS TEMAS LO MEJOR POSIBLE SIN QUE PIERDAN NADA DE FUERZA.

How many gigs have you played? Which type of gigs do you prefer, whether it's (clubs or festivals) and which of your performances would you consider as the best? 

LOS MEJORES CONCIERTOS SON LOS QUE HEMOS TOCADO CON LAS GRANDES BANDAS DE RENOMBRE, CON NAPALM DEATH FUE UN GRAN CONCIERTO, CUANDO TOCAMOS CON LOS BRUTAL TRUTH TAMBIÉN PORQUE NOS OCURRIERON ANÉCDOTAS MUY BUENAS. HEMOS TOCADO CON MASACRE, LOS COLOMBIANOS, ENTRE OTRAS MUCHAS BANDAS, TAMBIÉN NACIONALES Y DE DIFERENTES SITIOS DEL PAÍS, PERO NUESTRO CONCIERTO MAS ESPECIAL FUE EL QUE GRABAMOS EN FORMATO DVD AQUÍ EN SEVILLA Y QUE TENEMOS EDITADO JUNTO CON EL “NO MERCY FOR US” CON MORE HATE PRODUCTIONS, FUE ESPECIAL PORQUE FUE GRABADO CON MULTICAMARAS Y EL RESULTADO FUE ESTUPENDO. EN NUESTROS CONCIERTOS SIEMPRE INTENTAMOS PREPARARLOS LO MEJOR POSIBLE, PERO SIEMPRE NOS DEJAMOS LLEVAR, Y POR SUPUESTO SIEMPRE DARLO TODO Y DISFRUTÁRLOS A TOPE. EN CUANTO A LO QUE DICES DE QUÈ TIPO DE CONCIERTO PREFERIMOS, LA VERDAD ES QUE NOS DA IGUAL, LO IMPORTANTE ES LA CONEXION BANDA/FANS, SI ESTE BINOMIO ES INTENSO LO DEMAS ES SECUNDARIO.



What about your plans for the future? What do you want to achieve with the band?

EN ESTOS MOMENTOS ESTAMOS PREPARANDONOS PARA EL DIRECTO Y PABLO NUESTRO NUEVO BAJISTA ESTA PERFILANDO LOS TEMAS QUE ESTAN PRACTICAMENTE LISTOS. EN CUANTO A QUE NOSOTROS QUEREMOS LOGRAR, ES DISFRUTAR DE LA MUSICA, DE AHI EN ADELANTE, ESTAMOS ABIERTOS A TODO. 

How and where can your fans contact you? Can you provide some contact information?

CLARO, TENEMOS LAS REDES SOCIALES TOTALMENTE ACTIVAS, Y POR CUALQUIERA DE ELLAS NOS PODEIS CONTACTAR. 

OS DEJO LOS ENLACES:


Thanx for the interview.

A VOSOTROS POR LA OPORTUNIDAD DE DARNOS A CONOCER A VUESTROS LECTORES, Y GRACIAS TAMBIEN POR EL APOYO A LA ESCENA. SALUDOS DESDE EPAÑA

english version

Ave, can you introduce your band to our readers? – When was it founded and what style of music do you play , etc.? 

Well, dying was formed in 2000 starting as a trio, we are currently composing it; Fernando and Pepe to the guitars, Angel to the voice, Tony to the drums and Pablo to the bass, to mention also to Miguel, that participated in all the process of our new album and that decided to leave the band just before publishing it. As far as the styles we have practiced go from a thrash / death of the beginning, a death metal oldschool of our first album and until the brutal death of the present time. The style of the band evolves with the passage of time and with the incorporation of new members, contributing each their way of understanding music, always maintaining a core "death".


Where and under what conditions were you recording the new album? Who was in charge of sound, production and mastering? 

The album was recorded in Seville during the 2015/16. Ruben rodriguez, of neburzone pro. Is a fan of us always, is an authentic fanatic of the extreme metal and has knowledge of editing and recording and much experience in video also, we managed to reach an agreement and we started to work together, with the record, mix and master the disc, The truth is that it has been a pleasure to work with him, he technically understands the subject a lot, and it was not difficult to get along with him. 


How many copies were released and which medium was used for this new edition (CD, digital, vinyl, cassette)? 

Sevared record released 500 copies of our album "no mercy for us" and More Hate Productions released another 500 copies with an extra dvd of a live that we made in seville. The two editions have been in cd format and edited in the month of April of this year. In other formats, of course, we are open to any possibility and we would love to have a vinyl edition or even a cassette, but we need a label ready to do it, so if anyone is reading us, let them contact the band . 

Who is the author of the lyrics and how were they created and about what do the lyrics deal with? 

The creator of the lyrics has been an angel, vocalist of the band, each letter is different, are not related to each other and if with the title of the album, are different points of view and different topics, there are letters that speak of the apocalyptic world as The arrival of decadence with a "lovecrafniano" approach, and the apocalyptic stop breathing, with the vision of a mother with a child in her arms who stop breathing, we also have lyrics of social thematics as in throne of lies, all the pigs that control the power of this world and how they manipulate us at will, and even real letters like the case of the chronicles of insanity songs, which goes from bloody veridical facts of a paranoid of which, we also have a videoclip, and humans that gives us a description of humanity in the most terrible form. Pu-239 that is related to the one of a nuclear incident like the one that happened in chernobil and that it was said that it would never be repeated again (this letter was written after what happened in fukushima), when in the end it was repeated in Japan, Pu-239 is the type of plutonium that was released that day and that it takes in dissipating 24000 years. Torturer god talks about a priest who puts his lower instincts into practice in his own basement, we also have from chrysalis to worm that tells us about the transformation of a person into a monster by a contagion and how society rejects it, of this subject There is also a new video clip recorded with neburzone productions. 


Who created the logo of the band, and who took care of the graphics and the website? What about you and social networks? Do you consider these things important? 

The logo was created by Angel when he was not yet a member of the band. Also designed a shirt of the theme existence misgivins of our first album born from impurity, if you observe the two drawings are very oldschool, something that angel loves and us too. Social networks, if handled well, are very important to make our fans know the work and also to interact with them. Especially at the underground level are very important for the promotion of bands in general, we would say yes, they are important. In the band we take care of all of the networks in general, and at the same time, our website is a social network as well.


Which label did you choose for releasing your album and why this label? Are you satisfied by how your label represents you and takés care about you? Did you send your record to some Labels - which are the labels? How was the response? 

This is all very underground, I mean, we have to opt for everything and see that we get, so we tried several stamps of the bouquet here in Spain and abroad, in Spain and Portugal there was some interest but in the end could not be reached an agreement. In usa, sevared record is like an institution in the underground world of the style so, that was a very good opportunity to make us known in that part of the pool and at an international level. With morehate pro. Both of them, a seal little known for these homes but that already has its importance in the entire eastern part of the globe, we have also edited a dvd we had recorded, and that is great for us. We are very happy with the two labels and with the general reception of the album. 


Which bands do you idolise and where do you get your inspiration? 

Well, I would not call it idolizing if not admire, admire the great work that bands like suffocation, nile, immolation, and many others inevitably inspire us, although we always seek originality in our compositions. Is perhaps the most difficult, to be original without losing the essence of brutal death, but for that we are, to curry the subjects the best possible without losing any strength. 

How many gigs have you played? Which type of gigs do you prefer, whether it's (clubs or festivals) and which of your performances would you consider as the best? 

The best concerts are those that we have played with the big bands of renown, with napalm death was a great concert, when we played with the brutal truth also because we had very good anecdotes. We have played with massacre, Colombians, among many other bands, also national and from different places in the country, but our most special concert was the one recorded in dvd format here in sevilla and edited together with the "no mercy for us" With more hate productions, was special because it was recorded with multicam and the result was great. In our concerts we always try to prepare them as best as possible, but we always let ourselves go, and of course we always give everything and enjoy them to the fullest. As for what you say about what kind of concert we prefer, the truth is that we do not care, the important thing is the connection band / fans, if this binomial is intense, the rest is secondary. 


What about your plans for the future? What do you want to achieve with the band? 

At the moment we are preparing for the live and pablo our new bass player is outlining the topics that are practically ready. In what we want to achieve, is to enjoy the music, from there on, we are open to everything. 

How and where can your fans contact you? Can you provide some contact information? 

Of course, we have the social networks totally active, and for any of them we can contact. 

I leave the links: 


Thanx for the interview. 

To you for the opportunity to make known to your readers, and thanks also for the support to the scene. greetings from Spain.
