Who are you and what do you do in your band?
Hi. I'm Riccardo "Valentz" Valenti, the drummer
When/where was your band formed?
As Demiurgon we arrived in 2014, but we rise from the ashes of Hatred born in 2003. We changed name and bass player
Why did you choose to play Death Metal?
We all have been involved in this kind of music since we where young, so it has been a normal path for us. We all listen to different kind of music and this is good to grow together whit different ideas
How do you compose your music? Does only one guy do everything or does everyone contribute?
Normally I compose with Emanuele ( guitar ), we start from an idea or a single riff, sometimes we jam for growing interplay and here some ideas come to life
Tell us about your lyrics, writing, inspiration etc.
Lyrics, apart Rex mundi, are all inspired to the world around us. Evil inside man that destroy other lifes, nature. Society changes human mentality. The daily war to survive in this slime
Is there an ideology behind your band?
How do you see the state of Death Metal music these days in your country and in general?
Here in Italy in the last years has been really interesting, there are a lot of good bands with good musicians, like Septical gorge, Hour of penance, Hateful, Hideus divinity, Subhuman, Sickening and so on. Check them out.... In general I think death metal ( like all extreme metal ) is moving a little toward the abyss as years ago, because there are too many bands that release cd every day. But certainly it'll come back stronger then before, because death metal is death metal haha
What are your long term plans as a band? What do you want to achieve?
We hope funs and people we'll enjoy the new release, meanwhile we'll continue to promote it on stage in Italy and abroad and write new material for the next album.
We should release a split in september with another Italian band, but it's early to talk about it.
Name an other Death Metal band from your country that everyone should hear.
You can check my preview answer, there are so many that it's not easy to find "the best", depends on what you are searching for
We want to thank you for supporting Demiurgon, hope you'll check out "Above the unworthy" so we can share our energy on stage with you
