Dust In Mind – Interview –
First of all, welcome to Acier Doux Metalzine, could you introduce yourself and tell us something about the beginnings of Dust In Mind?
Hi everyone ! Of course! I’m Damien Dausch, 29 years old, and I’m from France . I play music since 15 years now, and I’m working my ass off to be part of this music industry. I was in several bands, but I’m definitely really proud of Dust In Mind, the only one I really believe in. Dust In Mind is born in 2013. At this time, I wanted to mix some different music, and put female vocals on it. I met Jennifer and it was like a finger snap : everything matched right away. So, from this time, we work always together, I’m on the production, she mades lyrics and we share all ideas we have. And for live performance, we had a strong line up with good musicians, a good team.
Dust In Mind is a combination of Industrial and Melodic Death Metal. What are your main influences ?
Let’s say Peter Tatgtren from Pain and Hypocrisy, Korn for the groovy parts, lacuna coil, and Gojira.
Talking about your debut EP ” Dust in Mind ” , was this your first studio recording experience ? What did you think of the process ?
Actually I have my own recording studio. It’s called Psyrus Studio. So for us, it’s easy to produce and create all the time. It’s a big plus we must use as much as we can. So we decide the process. Usually the process is : I have an idea in my head, I work on this with my guitar or a synth, to create a base, then I take 1 or 2 days off to be really free and work on the production, and the instrumental part of the song is done. We work on the lyrics and vocals later. It’s like 2 main parts, music, then vocals
Your album ‘’ Oblivion ‘’ , what can we expect from it ? It contains a different sound than your previous album ‘’ Never Look Back ‘’ ( I refer to the style, not the quality of the release) ?
Do you have a particular favourite track form the album ?
Blindness is a Death Metal band I’m leading, but wehave not enough time to go forward. It was my main band until Dust In Mind cameup. It was like an angry Hypocrisy band.
What do you prefer ? Playing at a big festival in front of a lot of fans, or playing in a small bar with your friends and true fans of the band having fun and drinking beer together ?
Thank you very much for giving us your time, and good luck guys !
Thanks, and thanks for the interview! Hope to see you soon on stage !
