"Generally speaking, it’s a good thing that musicians are creative and don’t just repeat the same styles all over again. (...)"

 

1. You are almost 6 years on the scene. Overall what has has been the greatest challenge the band has faced up until today?

Markus: We had some line-up changes in the beginning, and then again after a couple of years due to personal issues. This also changed the sound and style of our music, because one of the main songwriters was gone. But looking back, it was not that bad because after that we realized better what we want to accomplish with our music.

2. Many bands seem to take it a little too easy when it comes to the lyrics. Would you say that the lyrics are almost as important as the music?

Markus: In my option the vocals are the instrument to express the main emotional source or spirit of a song and have to be high energetic to cope with the other instruments in the first place in death metal ... in second place this overall picture of aggression could be rationally enforced by the lyrics, so that one who is interested in could understand the story behind and thereby somehow can then see the whole picture.

3. Let´s talk about your first and only EP release "The Garden Of Bones". What were the goals you had in mind when you started to record it, any elements you definitely wanted to have on it?

Markus: To be as brutal and hard hitting as (for us) possible. Also, we want to share our impressions of the things that monstrous mankind does and did in all times to its own kind. The Forces that drive this in any aspect of human live are what molds our dark vision which we want to express with our music.

4. Are you pleased by the reviews so far and be honest are third party opinions (press, fans, etc.) on your music important to you? Or are your music and band the only things that matter?

Tina: Yes, we are pleased and excited that The Garden of Bones got a lot of great feedback. It’s always important to reflect other opinions, especially when it is the first release.

5. Musically, the band takes a brutal approach that is reminiscent of bands such as Vader, Immolation, Cannibal Corpse. What was the songwriting process like? How did you conceptualize/visualize the music before materializing them?

Markus: All of us love this kind of music. But also, we don’t want to copy one of this great bands. We want to express our own vision of death metal. The song writing process is normally straight forward and driven by one of the guitarists who comes with some riff ideas or an already finished song. Then we work out the drum and bass parts and after that Franky builds up the lyrics on that. We usually also change some parts of a song several times after we have played it a while to improve and finally polish the result.

6. As far as my knowledge goes, DEMORPHED has performed live alot, How important is a stage appearance for a band like you?

Tina: It’s the most important part of being a band. We become more experienced and can see which songs do work good live and which songs don’t. We also sell our CDs or other merchandise at the shows.

7. One of the most remarkable things on this production is the cover artwork. It was made by your bass player Tina, could you tell us about her skills and the concept she has permeated on this work?

Tina studied graphic design and now works also as an illustrator. Her aim is to do more metal related artwork for bands and other artists of this dark field. For our EP she concentrated on the title The Garden of Bones and a dystopian view of the future, where we go back to some kind of war culture. At the same time, the world as we know it, is already built on bones and on the remains of everyone who died before us. Death and decay are normal things we need to reintegrate into our daily lives. On the other side, war may be normal, too, as there never really was a time since the beginning of mankind without war or gruesome fights. What did change is the efficiency of killing the modern weapons make possible. These are also represented within the artwork.

8. The German scene has been attributed as being one of the finest among the world. Which do you think are the main factors that characterize this scene alltogether?

Frank: On one hand there is the great amount of big festivals, tours and labels which are able to carry the heavy music in the public and create new fans. but on the other hand I think this big business is sometimes just about earning much money and not about creating insane and inspired music. So for myself I switched the focus more on the underground gigs little festivals and so on, there is much more to explore. And on the long term I think the opportunity to get good rehearsal rooms, equipment and/or to get on stage in little clubs is much more important. I mean without electricity, usable equipment and rehearsal room, while working 60h just to get something to eat, there is surely no power left for music.

9. Death Metal has come a long way today. Are you keeping track of the new bands in the DM scene? What do you think of the various sub-genres that are mushrooming each day?

Frank: I have a look at the DM scene but there is far too much to notice. Right now my DM-focus is on Necros Cristos, Psycroptic and Immolation but they are not really new. If we come to really new Bands ... I listen to Chthe'ilist awesome sick shit from Quebec or our local friends from Ichorid. I am not listening to many DM-subgenres, deathcore bugs me and Grindcore bores... but sometimes they have really cool groove parts. Tina: I think, quality will prevail. Generally speaking, it’s a good thing that musicians are creative and don’t just repeat the same styles all over again. But even if they do and rock it, that’s a good thing, too! Within our local scene alone there a lot of really good bands that need to get more awareness.

10. Is there such a thing as a Dutch death metal sound? What would characterize it?

Frank: Hm, maybe that I like them all, but for me they sound different ...Pestilence isn’t like Sinister, Asphyx not like Gorefest and so on. Tina: Maybe it’s some kind of dirty and grooving sound, uncompromising in its straightforwardness. We all like bands like Asphyx or Gorefest.

11. Do you feel an urge to develop Demorphed’s sound and move further with future records or do you think that you have already found a proper sound for the band?

Tina: We think about cutting out a little of the playful melodies and becoming more brutal and in-your-face with the songs. Markus: We try to improve and challenge us constantly, I think that is absolutely necessary to get not bored of making music in the long run.

12. We live in a globalized world where there are no borders to be crossed thanks to the internet. What are your feelings on this development of digital replacing physical?

Tina: I myself looove CDs and physical copies and hope they will stay. But I also see the advantages about digital distribution, which allows bands like us to spread the music all over the world. And it works so fast, too! One day you have your EP ready and produced, the other day someone across the ocean already can listen to it and buy it digitally. I think that’s really great!

13. OK man, I would like to thank you for your time and help, please add some words to the end of this interview.

Markus: Thank you very much man…

Tina: Thanks to you! Stay metal and keep it brutal!
