Interview - D-Tox

Interview with the Swedish Newcomer Band D-TOX:

Hi and thx for doing this Interview for electrowelt.com

- Happy to do it!

First of all, tell us a little more about yourselves and about your band.

- I Started making music a couple of years back, at that time it wasn't anything serious, just me fooling around with some soft-synths and simple drumsamples. before D-ToX i was involved in all kinds of different projects, from metal to more electronic music.
I started D-ToX more or less just as something to kill time, never knowing it would be what it is today.

How did you come up with the name of your band?

- The name comes from a movie with the same name.

Tell us about your style of music and who are your major influences?

- When I have to categorise our music I often tell people is something like "Industrial electro" or maybe "Hellectro" for those who know more about the genre. You can say its a mixture of bands such as: Suicide Commando, Agonoize, Combichrist etc etc. But thats something I like for other people to tell me what they hear and what genre they think our music represents.

How would you describe your music?

- Very hard and energetic. Pounding beats and basslines combined with vocals from hell ;)

Where do you typically get your inspiration for songs?

- I try to listen to different types of music and not get stuck listening to the same thing over and over again for inspiration.

Are you currently working on any release?

- Not at the moment. We are just in the beginning of making a name for ourselves again. We have struggling for some time to find a style that we feel proud of and can call "our own". We have tried a lot of different things over the years with D-ToX, both in the studio as well as live so right now we are at that point when we feel like what we do know is something we want to be known for. We are releasing new songs on our myspace whenever we get them finished but we have not decided on an actual release of an album or EP yet.

What are your views on the current Goth/Industrial scenes?


- Well, in Sweden were we live its very small and nowhere near as big as in say, Germany. Over here its mostly only two genres people want to hear: EBM/Body and Synthpop. Everything else just isn't as big here.
In my opinion Sweden is a very conservative country and anything "new" isn't really met with open arms. Nine out of ten times a swedish band plays live at a club they are either EBM or Synthpop oriented. For us who play another "type" of music, its not really easy to get through to clubs and promoters.

Do you seek gigs yourself or do you let them contact you?

- Right now we are trying to make a name for ourselves again, so we are contacting everyone ourselves, hoping that someday someone is gonna want us to come and play on their stage.

How do you do to promote yourselves?

- Every way that we can, we email clubs, promoters, DJs, event organizers, festivals and so on hoping that someone will like what they hear. We also recently joined "Dark Mourning Promotions" to help us spread the word about D-ToX.

How are your concert plans during this summer? Have anything ahead?

- Right now we have just finished a local show here in Sweden. After that we hope that the word will spread so we can get a couple of gigs booked throughout the summer and winter to really show how energetic a live performance with D-ToX can be.

How do you feel about the CD literally is dying and that digital formats are taking over?

- Since a CD nowadays cost Way to much for anyone to buy, I think its a good way to distribute it digitally.

How do you feel about piracy? Do you think it's killing the music industry?

- Yes and no. A lot of bands make the largest income when they play live shows and make money from merchandise. A lot of the people who whine are the ones that never play live or very rarely play live. If you get involved in making music, don't do it thinking your gonna make any money, cos you probably wont if you are not prepared to get off your ass and do some shows.

Any last words to our readers?

- Check out our myspace, spread the word about D-ToX and hope to see you at one of our shows in the future!

Thx for sharing your time with us and much success with your Project!
