......::::DARK DECEIVER (Greece)::::......
Date: 22th, December 2013
(Answers by  Pete Breaker - Bass/guitars & Johnny Meligounakis - Vocals )
 

DARK DECEIVER was formed in Athens, Greece at the beginning of 2010. In 2012 they finished their first album called "Divide Et Impera", the production was done in Sound Symmetry Studios in Athens by Bob Katsionis and the cd artwork by Seth Siro Anton (Septic Flesh). Let´s see what they have to tell us about their other aspects into the band.

1. Let´s unveil the past of DARK DECEIVER first, how did the bandmembers come together?

Pete: The creation of the band came up when I decided to record some songs that I have written years ago. As I was looking for a singer, my producer (Bob Katsionis) suggested me Johnny Meligounakis who gladly accepted to join me as a vocalist and lyricist.

2. How would you characterize the development of your band during this short period (3 years) of existence?

Pete: After finishing the recording of the album we started searching for members, but we couldn't imagine that it would be so difficult. That's why we haven't performed any live shows yet. But the last three months two new members joined us on bass Jon K Moodrix and on drums Nick Yngve. So we started rehearsing as a full band and we are going to give some live shows shortly.

3. Your music and production work on your debut album “Divide Et Impera” seems to be very professional (the sound, the cover artwork, etc), Could you please tell us some detailed aspects of the whole thing?

Pete: Well, we tried to have a professional result and we are glad that it is recognised.The whole production of the album (recording/mixing/mastering) was made by Bob Katsionis (Firewind/Outloud) in Sound Symmetry Studios in Athens. And the CD artwork and photography was made by Seth Siro Anton (Septic Flesh).

4. One of the hardest aspects (from my point of view) is to get a established line up, have you managed to find a estable bass and drum player for the band yet? How it have been working so far?

Pete: It's really difficult to find musicians and also people to share the same goals. Johnny and I have set some goals for the future and we were trying to find people who would fit in our plans. After a lot of searching now we can say that we have the right people to carry on.

5.  As so far you have been acted like a duo, I guess live appearances is not a relevant aspect of the band right now, how are you doing to manage this for the future?

Pete:
As I said before we haven't performed live yet because we didn't have a complete lineup. Now that we have our new live members our first priority is to perform live.

6. Who came up with the band's name DARK DECEIVER, the logo and everything? Does it have any deeper meaning for you?

Pete: The band's name came up from a dark figure I was seeing in my dreams as a child. The logo and the artwork created from Seth Siro Anton (Septic Flesh) and matched perfectly with the style I had in my mind.

7. - Speaking of your debut album, tell us something more about it? Did the final product surpass your expectations? How have been the feedback so far?

Pete: Our first album surpassed our expectations by far.The sound and the whole production came up very strong and powerful. And we are glad that people like it.

8. Are there any certain religious or philosophical beliefs within the band? I have noticed your lyrics are based on Ancient History And Cultures.

Johnny: The lyrics on Divide et Impera album are divided in two parts. Firstly we can see lyrics based on ancient greek mythology and hermitism such as "Poimandres", "En Las" and "Dark Deceiver". The second part of the lyrics are based on human edgy body and mind situations such as "Psychoneural", "Strong Aversion'' and "Eternal Schizm".
Our beliefs are deeply influenced by the ancient greek history and mythology. Though we don't believe in the concept of religion and all religions in general.

9. No more questions my friend. Just thanks for your time and good luck for your future plans. Closing is yours

Pete: In 2014 we will record our second album,a music video and some line-up changes. Stay tuned.....
