Dead Dark Slide Interview
1. For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
From Ryan The band was founded in 1999 in tampa FL the first thing we recorded was on an eight track tape
One of those let's make a fun metal project and see work goes nothing serious just have a good time and see what we came up with
2. So far you have recorded an ep and full length, can you tell us a little bit more about your musical sound?
I'm really heavily influenced from EYEHATEGOD to slayer & M.O.D & Long Winters' Stare
And also with gothic industrial from evil mother & sisters of mercy always loved the dark side of Doom & death Metal
And also the underground metal scene
3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
It's all about death destruction no mercy no pain think of the zombie wrapping you will part as you're watching them teach your test ends
But also with the Alice cooper thrill ride of demons that's a way we like to, work this project it's like to be rated horror movie that you sink your teeth
in its a very twisted weird an excitable
4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Dead Dark Slide'?
The name behind the name I was trying to figure out a great death name something gruesome something out of Horror movie
This project has been called balcony of blood through dead pigs we came up with hundreds and hundreds of Corinne nasty rotting flesh, the names something that would give you a bad smell if you walk up to it but also if you're into metal or Horror you would want to sink your teeth in it
5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
best show We played at a metal fast years ago in tampa and we opened up for an open for Eviscerated Zombie Tampon
Stage performance today is like an Alice cooper meets true Horror when you see are shows we push the envelope
With the most bloodiest stuff you can see it's like something you've never seen before its a Horror music show
That is very entertaining DDS army loves it
6. Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
Right now don't have any shows planned waiting for Eviscerated Zombie Tampon to get back in the town so I can start playing shows with them ,All
let you know when shows to appear but I am working with the cosmic punch project to get that up and running
We'll be at fan boy in September in Tampa signing autographs and hanging out
7. Your recordings have been released on Dead Games Records, can you tell us a little bit more about this label?
What a great label to be on any problems are issues they'll we solve it there doing a campaign to push this new album
They do a lot a advertisements and everything else to get our stuff out there radio play there's nothing like them when they get behind your project, deathly a company I can't wait to do my next album with because it's a record label and actually cares about what you do
And they allow you to have full freedom to do what you want there's not a lot a record labels out there that want you to crawl rate what if you want to create new Cool Metal they are The best record label to be signed to
8. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of industrial, goth, and metal?
Pretty good feedback people who get it love it but if you don't get it and you don't get that this is metal and were band that isn't that serious this project is about having fun in chlor rating at what ever you want to all of the critics that don't get it will never get music is about having fun you don't have to be mad because you're making metal or any kind of metal or if it's not up to was tampered because if you only listen to Metallica you're never gonna like anything if you don't open your mind too all the different styles of metalThis project bands and fans love because it's making fun of metal it a fun way and if you don't understand that and you don't hear it
Once you open your eyes and you can have a sense of humor this is a great project because you can relax and have a good time it has its silly moments I love some of the reviews at we got so far that are taking so serious I think for the critics they need to sit back smoke a joint
Listen to cosmic punch sit back and enjoy a gray record that's what this record and all the other stuff we do it's fun the fan should never
Walk away feeling that they were neglected by an artist we will never disappoint any of our fans or critics because this is what you get a fun project sit back and enjoy listen to DDS I am dead record and enjoy it for what it is something fun
9. Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
deathly more albums something heavier slower evil something like a dog company a cat and a cat having ferrets
I would probably say 2015 we'll put out another DDS record I am also working on the Man Milk record with Clint listing who is a wonderful artist that
I known for over 30 years and some of the project said he has been in our amazing like Long Winters' Stare & As All Die & a Darkened Sea
