Deathronic Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit aboutthe musical project?

Deathronic is a Studio / Solo Project, I composed some tracks few years ago, and wanted to release those songs through an album. Deathronic Project experiments with Symphonic Black Death Metal by combining several influences such as electronic music, oriental…

2.In 2013 you had released an ep, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?

I have many influences spanning over various Metal periods, from Old School heavy Metal, to 90’s Death Metal, Modern Black Metal, etc. With “Duality Chaos”, I wanted to express my seamless view of Metal, where all the styles are permitted, without focusing on one specific trend of style. The track Bloody Lust for example, has a heavy metal influence while Kalila Wa Dimna is more symphonic. I also experiment clean vocals in the track Anno 1423 which can be considered more gothic or doom.

Regarding the recording process of “Duality Chaos”, it took place at the Parlour Studios, in Kettering, UK, and it was produced by Neil Haynes. The vocals were recorded at the Audio Sound Art Studio in Berlin and engineered by Laurentx Etxemendi (Former Gojira’s Live Sound Engineer.). "Duality Chaos" was mixed & mastered by Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd at Studio Fredman, the famous Gothenburg Sound!

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with your music?

The Concept behind Duality Chaos is human violence. The idea is to denounce how humans are still, today, bestial beings. The unending conflicts and wars are a perfect example of this. Mankind continues to kill for irrational reasons. I think that the origin of that violence is the internal duality of human beings (the struggle between Good and Evil). Many of the worst atrocities are perpetrated in the name of subjective notions of good or bad… A duality that gives birth to chaos…We still see every day, unsupportable choking images of  bloody wars, killed children… that violence cycle is still the cancer of Humanity… and this is not the progress!

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the 'Deathronic'?

Well, The name “Deathronic” is, first of all, an homage to Chuck Schuldiner, an artist who influenced several generations with his masterpiece project « Death ». The other part of the name refers to my electronic music influences, which I wanted to introduce into my compositions.

5.With this musical project you play all the instruments, do you ever plan on expanding the line up or ever doing shows?

I have a side band project “Heavyction” (Industrial Death Trash Metal) and we are currently preparing an EP and also live shows during which we could play, may be, Deathronic’s Songs…

6.The ep was released on Mighty Music, can you tell us a little bit more about this label?

My collaboration with Mighty Music a Danish Label, started after the producing process of the Mini Album. They really realize a good job promoting Duality Chaos!
I would like to thank here all the Mighty Team.

7.The album cover was designed by Seth Siro Anton of Septic Flesh, can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork who brought onto your album?

…Seth Siro Anton is a great artist and he is really supporting debut project like Deathronic. It was an honor for me to have my album’s cover made by him. The Artwork, he created, describes very well the album theme.. and also the atmosphere I wanted to transmit.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of the symphonic, melodic and extreme genres of metal?

I was very pleased with the positive feedback and the several encouraging press articles I received… especially with this being my debut release. The songs Kalila wa Dimna & Disharmonia Part II … was nominated in the Independent Music Awards (Metal Song Category). I was really surprised and pleased by this nomination.

9.When can we expect a full length album and also where do you see t=yourself heading into as a musician in the future?

Well, I’m currently focusing on my side Project “Heavyction” but I’m also working on next Deathronic’s release, the next album, a full length one. Several songs are ready but I will take the necessary time to release it.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

As said before, regarding my influences, it’s spanning over various Metal periods, from Old School heavy Metal (King Diamond) to 90’s Death Metal (Of course Death Chuck Chuldiner’s Masterpiece) until Modern Black Metal, etc… also over some electronic & world music…

Currently I’m listening to some Friends releases. The French scene is really rich with talented bands… For example an awesome new release “Toxic Waste Blues” from the Death Thrash’n Roll Parisian band “Corrosive Elements”. I recommend that great album!

11.What are some of your non musical interests?

Philosophy (especially Derrida’s Trend of thinking), Economics, Technology (I'm working in the field of Information Technology), History, Ecology… and I use some of those interests to build artistic concepts, for example on ”Anno 1423” Music Video that describes a projection of a post apocalyptic environment …

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

I would like to thank “A Different Shade Of Black” Webzine for supporting Deathronic and emerging projects…

Deathronic/Duality Chaos/Mighty Music/2013 EP Review

  Deathronic  are  a  solo  project  from France  that  plays  a  mixture  of  symphonic  black,  melodic  death  and  doom  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2013  ep  "Duality  Chaos"  which  was  released  by  Mighty  Music.

  Symphonic  keyboards  start  off  the  ep  along  with  some  male  and  female  operatic  choirs and  after  the  intro  the  music  goes  for  more  of  a  heavy  sound  along  with  some  melodic guitar  leads  and  riffs  while  also  keeping  the  symphonic  elements  as  well  as  well  as  adding  in  blackened  metal  screams  and  death  metal  growls.

  All  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  you  can  also  hear  a  lot  of  traditional  metal  elements  in  the  guitar  solos  and  leads  and  the  music also  brings  in  a  touch  of  industrial  at  times  and  they  also  mix  in  oriental  folk  music  influences  at  times  while  some  of  the  slow  yet  heavy  riffs  are  very  heavily influenced  by  early  90's  doom/death  metal  and  there  are  also  a  few  instrumental  tracks.

  Deathronic  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  the  symphonic  side  of  black  metal  and  mixes  it  with  melodic  death,  goth,  doom  metal,  and  a  touch  of  electronic  and  oriental  music  to  create  a  musical  style  of  his  own,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  human  violence  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Deathronic  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  symphonic  black,  melodic  death  and  doom  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  solo  project.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Bloody  Lust"  and  "Anno  1423".  8  out  of  10.
