Posicore worshipers leave the hall. DiE’s the punkish english band I’ve listened to in years: their lyrics and songs are simple and efficient as fuck.
Maybe you can read New-Yorker Freddy Alva’s words about current UK hardcore/punk scene – I can’t agree more with the bands he picked up, above all concerning DiE.
1/ In my opinion, DiE seems to be THE band you must keep an eye on in 2015 if both hardcore and punk subcultures drive your will to fight boredom, frustration and hate.
Because since 2013, you guys released two perfect EPs on Sonic Terror Discs – two records which led me to consider two different points of view towards DiE “concept”: either you’re a totally nihilistic band recording EPs in ten minutes and just want to spit your rage on the audience face, or, on the contrary, everything is perfect because you need to calculate everything to satisfy the hungry 2015 worldwide punk scene? (Please, tell me the second option is just bullshit)
Hate, frustration and hopelessness are our mantra, they drew us together as a group. A common ground. Tim and myself worked in professions watching people wither away and die every day. Clinging to life, a futile existence, for the sake of a few weeks. It made me angry that we gave people these options, pumping them full of poison just so they could lay unresponsive and bloated for a few weeks just so distant family members they hadn’t seen in years could come and steal their grief and hope of getting onto their will. Its made us cold to the world, but that’s the way it is, and the best way to survive in it. Just the other day I was scooping an unborn fetus into a pathology pot to make sure we removed it all, I felt nothing, desensitized, humanity cannot shock me anymore so I guess I take a somewhat nihilistic stance with the lyrics and life, so in answer to your question our ep’s are recorded to destroy ,condemn existence and hate everything that surrounds us.
Where do you guys come from? Were you friends before playing together?
Are you involved in other bands?
I red DiE shares a member with CROWN COURT, is that a band you will advice our readers to listen to?
