Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Great thanks, excited to get back out on the road and tour!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Betrayed”?
Betrayed lyrics is about the time in my life that i realized i had to start living the life i wanted, not how society wants me to live. It´s kinda and automatic process from being a kind and youth to just smoothly entering the life of paying bills, getting a house and mortgage, kids working on you status and so forth. So i wrote the lyric based that view. Kinda felt Betrayed that i didn’t know of this before.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
It´s so much lies and walking around the bushes now days, probably been so for ever. I felt i was living in a big pile of lies and deception. So the message is start waking up, and realize that you are a live and start living in all aspects of you life.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Sure! We released a lyric video for this track at https://youtu.be/D8lm64GtUiM
The single comes off your new album Surfing The Apocalypse – what’s the story behind the title?
The theme was somehow mocking the 2012 ENDTIMES issue that was flying around, but also to put light on the indifference about our way of living and for the health of our only home, Earth.
The message is to appreciate what we have and active work to evolve and speed up the process of getting our selfs out of our little bubble we live in.
The earth and nature can´t sustain the consumer human, so we are destined to change. But we as people are not gonna change before we stand on the edge and have no other choice. We have always been like this. So there has been very little evolvement of being preventive.
It´s a different message for the Surfing the Apocalypse title as well.
We didn’t believe in the total destruction at this particular time in history, so for this period, while a lot of believers out there stressing around this issue, we just surf through it calm and happy focusing on other stuff.
How was the recording and writing process?
The writing process for this this album was basically me writing riff ideas and putting them together into a easy set up, jam through the songs with the band and start ripping it apart for putting them together again as a band. I love this process, it sound more alive when they are recorded.
For the most part it was just small changes, but some songs we worked really hard to make them shine.
What aspect of suffering and apocalypse did you get to explore on this record?
Betrayed, as one of the few songs, was written by me as a whole song, i just wrote the basic drum ideas, lyric and vocal lines. We hit the rehearsal room and it just worked. Of course we had to make it breath so all parts was just guidelines to keep us into the main idea.
Any plans to hit the road?
Of course! We are talking about hitting the live stage the fall this year. Both Nationally and abroad.
What else is happening next in Dienamic’s world?
We moved from Northern Norway to Gothenburg, Sweden last year. Me and Gustav the singer, ended up being the only one left. We knew that was a possibility before we sat foot on Sweden. So new line up, new live show, new songs, new spirit and a new beginning.
We are working really hard on the material and we hope to be ready with some new tunes by the end of this summer.
