Apologies!!! This translation is made with Google Translator!
On 26 November in Igualada had the opportunity to chat with the guys from Difused, who came to play along with All Will Know, from Germany with Ravenblood, Icestorm, Red Raw and Asphyxion. Jorge, Difused singer, originally from Ecuador, served as our translator. Here you have a piece of audio (spanish) so we could chat with him and made a short written interview this January.
To begin with we take a look at the past and do a bit of history which have been the early diffuse. How did it diffuse?
Difused was formed by Manuel Schmittwilken and Mirko Klier guitarists. They met and began to form ideas to make a melodic metal band, all in the spring of 2005, the band joined Jonathan Ross (bass) Schmittwilken Christian (vocals) and Hendrik (drums) of diffuse influences are: Dark Tranquility, In Flames, Scar Symmetry. Current Inlfuencias (Be'lakor, Opeth) ...
There are several singers who have gone through Diffuse, done before the guttural Jorge did if I'm wrong, how have you done with him as the only vocalist?
In total, only two singers last Christian Difused Schmittwilken to the guttural and clean vocals, while the second vocalist (Dirk frenking) only to the guttural and clean vocals to jorge and played the drums. After Dirk left the band for personal reasons, the boys had not really wanted to find a new singer, so they decided to tell George to take the job as vocalist, and he can do the two voices. The throaty and clean. October 2009 Des Jorge performs the tasks of the voice. (Jorge was part of widespread as a drummer in February 2007)
If we talk about style, it is clear that we are in the melodic death, but to stay here is very generic, how do you describe your style to someone you have never heard?
Our style is a mixture of atmospheric metal since Henning Schmidt (keyboards) joined the band. We would not know truly say that we like, but what comes closest to what we do is the melodic death metal with touches (as I wrote just now) atmosphere, and with many pauses where those who do not much like the voice guttural voices can enjoy clean, we would say that Difused can be heard by all people who enjoy a mix ... In this case, extreme and clean vocals and lots of melody ...
In 2009 you released an album, September, now that some time has passed, what do you have from the first album?
Yes, the album was recorded between January and March 2009, and if it has been three years. Our opinion about this album was very successful time now, just think it was a good start with a good sound (at the George album only played drums and did the clean vocals, and guttural Dirk) the power Difused has since Jorge was changed to the microphone and Starper Matthias joined as drummer, is more brutal and melodic than before, we are looking forward to recording our second album, which will be in March 2012, the album will be called "The Silence "
And what was received in the media and the public?
The album had good reviews, and not only that, Nostro had the opportunity to open to vader in June 2009. The audience was delighted with "September" Now that same audience and new fans of diffuse anturalmente expect the new album with the new alignment.
Did you have previous experience of study? Where did you record?
Before the arrival of George, Matthias and Henning, Difused recorded a demo (same name) was recorded at the home of gitar (Mirko) Nirk had already had experience in the studio with his former band Adorned Brood. When recorded September, George already had experience recording in studios, in Ecuador he recorded two albums with other bands, to the other members was new, the album was recorded in Trollstudios in Osnabrück.
In November I was in Barcelona, but with a bit of bad luck, as the Q-room three, where you were going to play was a fire and could not do the concert. Could you play in Igualada, along with All Will Know, Ravenblood, Red Raw, Asphyxion Icestorm and remember what you have taken of this visit?
Indeed, it was a very good experience for us as a band and as friends, as a group, we felt sorry for not being able to be played in the room Q3, but one day after the concert we had in Igualada and we really liked the place. At the beginning we would not get one, but in the end we were very happy with the support of the people. It was the first time that George spoke in Castilian with the public since the singer is diffuse, and that was an advantage for the public to follow. Truly an unforgettable experience for us.
Germany, musically, within the metal band has a lot of class and have even created their own styles as in the 80 and 90 with the German power metal and now with the death metal, folk and more. With so much metal and of such quality should be complex to a site in the metal scene, right?
Yes, it is very complex, but not impossible, luckily the German public is interested in hearing new bands. In ultimops 2 years we have grown as a band, and while in Germany there are many bands with whom we compete, our progress in recent years has brought its fruits ...
What future plans you have now? Some tour ... gigs?
Our plans are: More concerts and if possible a tour with the brothers of Ravenblood. Insurance and other concerts where we stand.
Thank you for allowing us to talk back to you again and if you want to add anything, this space below is for you.
Thank you very much for the interview you, we hope to return to Spain, and perhaps with a new album in hand :)
