We expect to have a great time as well and make some new Croatian friends as well

Dewfall

Dewfall je talijanski black\death bend koji dolazi u Hrvatsku u sklopu Illyrian Invocations turneje na kojoj sviraju sa Ad Noctem Funeriis, a sve u organizaciji agencija Stage2Stage i Hammer & Tongs. Illyrian Invocations je dio turneje Cabalistic Road 2015. Što su nam sve rekli i što očekuju od koncerata u hrvatskoj, pročitajte u intervjuu koji smo napravili za vas. Intervju je u hrvatskoj i engleskoj verziji.

MJM: Za početak molim vas predstavite svoj bend našim čitateljima.

Flavio: Pozdrav svim MJM čitateljima i unaprijed hvala na interesu za naš bend Dewfall. Mi smo black/death metal bend i dolazimo iz Italije. Po prvi put donosimo našu glazbu u Hrvatsku. Dolazimo na tri koncerta pod zajedničkim imenom “Illyrian Invocations”, koje je dio naše cijele turneje pod imenom “Cabalistic Road 2015”, a na kojoj promoviramo naš EP “Painful Death Lake”.

MJM: Što ste snimili do sada?

Flavio: Naš prvi diskografski uradak je bio “Legacy Of Soul” iz 2004. kojeg smo vrlo dobro ispromovirali. U 2009. izdali smo naš prvi album  “V.I.T.R.I.O.L.” koji je odmah stigao na ljestvicu top albuma na “Metal Maniac” i “Metalitalia.com”. Nakon ova dva izdanja, u 2012. bend dobiva novu postavu. U 2013. izdajemo novi EP “Painful Death Lake” koji je okarakteriziran kao mračni i snažni black\death metal. U travnju 2013. izdajemo i video spot za pjesmu “Painful Death Lake”. Trenutno radimo na četvrtom izdanju, koje je uskoro gotovo.

MJM: Gdje nalazite inspiraciju i tko stvara glazbu, a tko piše tekstove?

Flavio: Svih ovih godina od kad postoji Dewfall, inspiracija za pjesme dolazi iz neprobojnog plamena koji je unutrašnja snaga ili duh svakog čovjeka. Naši tekstovi su grobni, okultni i ezoterični i s njima opisujemo odnos između čovjeka i nad prirodne dimenzije, koja se ostvaruje na mnogo načina od vizija koje se ocrtavaju po prirodi do živih čitanja starih priča. Ono što Dewfall izvodi i stvara na bini je rezultat rituala.

MJM: Koji su vam planovi nakon turneje?

Flavio: Kada se vratimo kući, nećemo imati vremena za odmoriti se, već ćemo se odmah priključiti tradicionalnom metal festival u našem rodnom gradu, San Metallo Vol. X, koji je 13. lipnja. Nakon toga nastavljamo sa radom na materijalu. U međuvremenu, sviramo na Fosch Fest 2015, Bagnatica (BG-ITA) 7.-9. kolovoza. To je najvažniji metal festival u Italiji, pa čak i u Europi, mogli bi reći. Ove godine nastupaju Carcass, Satyricon, Finntroll, Manegarm, Kampfar, Arkona i mnogi drugi.

MJM: Što znači ime benda Dewfall?

Flavio: Dewfall znači beskonačnost, a ujedno i alfa i omega. To je poplava, puštena od strane same srži kozmičkog stabla koje hrani duše u psihičkom zatvoru, to je otrov koji zasljepljuje um i svjetlo na kraju tunela. Trebate slušati Dewfall da bi razumjeli o čemu govorim.

MJM: Gdje ste do sada svirali i da li ste svirali sa nekim poznatim bendom?

Vittorio: Vrlo smo zadovoljni kako smo do sada promovirali naš EP. U zadnje dvije godine smo u Italiji svirali na svim značajnijim mjestima za metal. Svirali smo na važnim festivalima i dijelili binu sa Carpathian Forest, Gorgoroth, Behemoth, Vital Remains, Forgotten Tomb, Kreator, Annihilator, Moonspell, Decapitated, Bulldozer, Necrodeath. Bili smo support bendu Taake na talijanskoj turneji, svirali smo 5 koncerata i bilo je odlično.

MJM: Što znate o Hrvatskoj i da li ste bili prije kod nas?

Flavio: Ovo je prvi put da dolazimo u Hrvatsku. Primijetili smo da u zadnjih nekoliko godina Hrvatska, a i ostale susjedne države imaju dosta underground koncerata i s time otvaraju mogućnosti za veliki broj europskih bendova, talijanskih, a i domaćih da nastupaju i da se čuje za njih. Ja se sjećam atmosferskog black metal benda “Darkendome” koji su prije nekoliko godina imali odlične EP-e “Of Pride and redemption” i “Ascension”…  Želio bih znati da li su još aktivni. Bio bi to odličan bend za zajedno svirati u vašoj zemlji.

MJM: Što očekujete od koncerata u Hrvatskoj?

Vittorio: Nikada do sada nismo svirali na Balkanu, tako da naša očekivanja se stvaraju samo na pšričama o vašoj preljepoj zemlji. Izgleda da su ljudi veoma strastveni kad je pitanje metal glazbe i nadamo se dobroj reakciji publike. Ipak neki od nas su posječivali internacionalne metal festival i željeli bi reći da je lijepo živjeti i širiti metal bratstvo izvan granica naše države. Očekujemo odličnu zabavu i da ćemo steći neke nove hrvatske prijatelje. Želio bih spomenuti i Stage2Stage i Hammer & Tongs Staff koji su omogućili da dođemo svirati u vašu zemlju.

MJM: Kakva je situacija sa talijanskom  underground metal scenom?

Vittorio: Mislim da u Italiji imamo dobru underground metal scenu. Bendovi u underground su dosta originalni jedinstveni.  Moram istaknuti da u zadnjih nekoliko godina raste broj organizacija koje se bave koncertima i na taj način dovode dobar broj ljudi na te koncerte, te surađuju na profesionalnoj razini. Tu smo i mi u Bariu sa Metal Symposium, RocKcult, Dissonance Conspiracy i Beerstruction, također smo u regiji sa Project Area Metal Zone i mnogim drugim organizacijama. Od ostalih u Italiji, možemo spomenuti No Sun Music u Rome, VoV Events u Siciliji, UltraBlast Events u Veneto, Etrurian Legion i Black Dawn promocija u Tuscany, Nihil Productions i Fosch Fest u Lombardy. Naravno, tu još ima dosta rada, jer fali publike s obzirom da metal u Italiji nije previse popularan, ali undenground koncerti postaju sve kvalitetniji i s tim koncerti imaju sve više publike.

MJM: Zašto ste postali metalci?

Flavio & Vittorio: Mislimo da se metalac ne postaje, mi smo rođeni sa prirodnim stavom koji izlazi zahvaljujući prosvjetljenju koje se kasnije razvija, to nije izbor, može biti blagoslov ili proklestvo. 😉

MJM: Recite nam nešto za kraj, možda ljudima koji će doći na vaš koncert.

Flavio & Vittorio: Nemojte propustiti naš prvi dolazak u Hrvatsku i želimo pokazati ljudima kako je odlična Illyrian scena.

MJM: For a start please introduce your band to our readers?

Flavio: Greetings to all MJM Staff and readers and thank you in advance for your interest in Dewfall. We are a black/death metal band coming from the Italic Land and we are exporting our music to Croatia for the first time as the 3 “Illyrian Invocations” shows are part of our ongoing tour called “Cabalistic Road 2015”, supporting our recent EP “Painful Death Lake”.

MJM: What do you record till now?

Flavio: Our first discographical debut is called “Legacy Of Soul”, it has been produced in 2004 and promoted with many gigs. In 2009 we released the first album entitled “V.I.T.R.I.O.L.”, which was judged Top Album on “Metal Maniac” and “Metalitalia.com”. After these two productions we moved to a new line-up in 2012. In 2013 we published the new EP “Painful Death Lake”, a work made of dark and powerful black/death metal riffing merged with evocative epic influences, whose title track appeared on our official videoclip published on April 2013. We are now working on our forthcoming full-length and songs are almost complete.

MJM: Where you find inspiration and who writes music and who lyrics?

Flavio: As it’s been along the years, inspiration for a Dewfall song comes from that impenetrable flame which is the inner spirit of the man. Our lyrics are a cryptic, occult, esoteric message which we communicate describing relations between human beings and supernatural dimensions, revealed in many ways, through visions drawn from natural scenery as well from a vivid reading of ancient tales, mystic knowledge mixed with weird historical and artistic heritage coming from our ancestors. What Dewfall creates and performs on stage is the result of a choral and accurate handcrafted ritual.

MJM: What is your plans after this tour?

Flavio: Once back home, we won’t have time to rest a bit the bones as we will join a traditional metal festival in our hometown, San Metallo Vol. X on June 13th. After this, we will continue working hard on the final songs which will complete the set-list of our next full-length. In the meanwhile we’ll perform at Fosch Fest 2015, Bagnatica (BG-ITA) 7-9 August. It is one of the most important extreme and metal festival in Italy and, we can say it, in Europe, this year involving Carcass, Satyricon, Finntroll, Manegarm, Kampfar, Arkona and many more…so we are very enthusiast to take part to this event.

MJM: What is the meaning of band name Dewfall?

Flavio: Dewfall means infinite as well as alpha and omega, it is the flood spread by the roots of the cosmic tree to feed the soul in its physical prison…is a poison which blinds the mind’s eye as well as the light on a darkened path…You should listen to Dewfall to feel some of its meaning.

MJM: Where do you play till now and do you played with some “well known” band?

Vittorio: We are really happy about how the new EP has been promoted on stage till now: in the last two years we had the chance to play throughout Italyamong the best venues for metal music and appear in important festivals, sharing the stage with part of the international gotha of black/death metal scene like Carpathian Forest, Gorgoroth, Behemoth, Vital Remains, Forgotten Tomb, and extreme scene representatives like Kreator, Annihilator, Moonspell, Decapitated, Bulldozer, Necrodeath. The Italian Tour supporting Taake deserves a special mention: the Norwegian band is among the most influencing ones for our music and we had the luck to follow them in in 5 gigs in our country and we should say it has been amazing! We spent really a great time and had great feedback from the audience as well!

MJM: What do you know about Croatia and do you before play in Croatia?

Flavio: As previously anticipated, it’s the first time for us in Croatia and we are sure we are approaching a booming contest artistically/musically speaking. We’ve notice and appreciating that in the last few years Croatia and neighbor countries scenes are guesting many underground live events offering good opportunities to  a huge number of European bands, many Italians too…and even the local acts are several and from our listening they are also killer bands! Personally, I remember an atmospheric black metal band called “Darkendome” which some years ago produced very good EPs entitled “Of Pride and redemption” and “Ascension”… I would like to know if they’re still active, it was a very good promise and it would have been a very good band to play with in your country.

MJM: What do you expect from Croatian gig?

Vittorio: We have never played in the Balkans so far, so our expectations are based on what we heard about these beautiful countries: it seems that people are very passionate for metal music and we hope to get a good response in terms of attitude from the audience. Apart from this, having some of us attended international metal festivals abroad, we should say that it’s really nice to live and perceive the metal brotherhood out of the boundaries of your country… in this sense we expect to have a great time as well and make some new Croatian friends as well! I want to spend a mention for Stage2Stage and Hammer & Tongs Staff for their cooperation in bringing us to your country.

MJM: How is situation with Italian underground metal scene?

Vittorio: I think that in Italy we have, overall speaking, a good underground scene. I start mentioning the very high level of what underground Italian bands propose in terms of music, often in an original and personal way. Then I must highlight that in the last couple of years we are experiencing the rising of new organizations throughout our country building up events in a very accurate way, involving a good number of people in terms of audience, collaborating with very professional venues: in this “unwritten project” we are “first in line” in Bari with Metal Symposium, RocKcult, Dissonance Conspiracy and Beerstruction, and in our region with Project Area Metal Zone and many several organizations, but we can mention, among others Italians No Sun Music in Rome, VoV Events in Sicily, UltraBlast Events in Veneto,Etrurian Legion and Black Dawn promotion in Tuscany, Nihil Productions and Fosch Fest in Lombardy. Of course, this is still a difficult field (mainly due to a low percentage of population listening to Metal music in Italy with all the relevant consequences), but I should say that averagely an Underground concert in Italy is expected to be good in terms of quality of music, venue and audience!

MJM: Why you become metalhead?

Flavio & Vittorio: We think one can’t become metalhead…we born with a natural attitude which comes out thanks to an epiphany and then develops…it’s not a choice…it can be a benediction or…a damnation! 😉

MJM: And tell us something for the end, maybe to people who will come to concerts. 🙂

Flavio & Vittorio: Don’t miss our first time in Croatia, we want to tell our people how great is the Illyrian scene!
