Dyoxidon exclusive interview
taking the time to do the interview, could you give our readers a brief
description of the project? Where is it from?
Hello, thank you for the interview opportunity. Dyoxidon is an industrial black/death metal project, whose origins begin roughly in 2009.
The aim was to fuse black and death metal with industrial and harsh electronics, in a way that had not previously been done before. Currently,
Dyoxidon consists of myself, Host_Revenant, writing all the music and recording it. To date, Dyoxidon has officially released two full-length
albums and an EP.
Dyoxidon has origins in both Colorado and Wisconsin. I am originally from Milwaukee, but much of the original, raw demo songs were composed
in Colorado after moving there as a teenager. Eventually I relocated back to Wisconsin in 2015 and recorded a demo while there, but now I reside
in Colorado again. All official Dyoxidon releases have been recorded in Colorado.
2- “The Decaying Multiverse” is your new LP, how long did it take to compose it?
Four songs on The Decaying Multiverse were written in 2020, with three songs being written in 2021 and one written as far back as 2013.
I began recording it in early 2022, with all music being finished by the end of that year. It was finally released in early 2023 after obtaining
3- What musical influences inspired the songwriting?
I tend to draw from a few different genres of music when composing for Dyoxidon, usually black metal, death metal, industrial, and IDM.
The Decaying Multiverse was much more heavily death metal-inspired when writing the bulk of it, though the final product probably doesn't
reflect that. The most difficult part was writing black and death metal riffs on very low-tuned 7 and 8 string guitars, without the music
turning into Djent or something similar.
4- When the project started? Can you tells us more?
Dyoxidon was started in 2009, and recorded several low-fi demos between then and 2013. An attempt at an actual full-length, titled "Mechanobiotic
Theosophy" was recorded in 2017, but I strongly disliked how it turned out after more and more listens. It was later re-recorded and re-mixed
into "Exo-Spectrum", the first official full-length, in 2021. An EP entitled "Outmoded" was released in 2020, which contains one new song,
three re-recorded demo songs, and a cover of a friend's project called Child Actor.
details about the content and more in depth meaning to this title?
"The Decaying Multiverse" symbolizes the decline and rotting of every single aspect of reality, from the physical world to the ethereal and
the spiritual. We can witness this happening in real time today, as we move through the Iron Age. I wanted an album title that matched the
massive and ethereal sound of the music, and I felt it was a fitting choice. Lyrically the album touches on subjects including hostile
extraterrestrials, parasitic spiritual entities, and the population en masse being plugged into a fake reality.
and supportive are the people to your music?
Dyoxidon has not yet performed live, though I myself have performed live in the bands Auxeptheon, Damnation Winds, and Ob Nixilis. Many fellow
musicians have expressed interesting in helping bring Dyoxidon live in the future, so live shows are a very real possibility. Most people
who have heard The Decaying Multiverse in my area have given it praise.
7- Are there any upcoming shows or tours you can tell us about?
There are no Dyoxidon shows lined up as of yet, however I am currently playing live in Colorado band Ob Nixilis. I will also be playing
live in another Colorado band very soon, though I do not wish to reveal who yet until it is 100% official.
hold of the project, in case someone wants to book or promote you?
Any final words?
Dyoxidon is currently on Facebook and Bandcamp. Inquiries can be sent there, and any further communication can be continued via email if chosen.
Thank you very much for the opportunity to do this interview, and I appreciate everyone who has chosen to listen to Dyoxidon.
