...high on interview...


1.)Tell us something about the history of Dopethrone you think is interesting and that just a few people know?

Well... It's hard to remember much because we’re always drunk as hell...
The first time I jammed out with Vince and Tom (ex drummer), it was for Vatican (The band Vince used to drum for)... After a few songs they switch instruments Vince got on the guitar and they showed me the ''Stoner shit'' they started jamming out a week ago...
And I was like DAMN!! I really love this stuff!!... The next week we practiced again and decided to find a name... Dopethrone came out, and it just stayed that way... I didn’t even know about Electric Wizard at that time... I was more of a Black Metal dude stock in the 90's... so I said HELL YEAH!!! The name also reminded me of Darkthrone...

2.)Which bands have inspired you and influenced the sound of Dopethrone the most?

As in many interviews before...
Electric Wizard, Iron Monkey, Bongzilla, Weedeater
and many more...


3.) How is the song-writing-procedure working? Do you all create them together or is there a writer in the band?

Vince is the foreman. He’s the one that comes out with most of the riffs...
We support him while the song takes roots and work around that… The riffs just comes to him out of nowhere while we’re improvising ...Some other riffs are born after a long night of substance abuse... Others are jammed out on the acoustic at first.

4.)What do you think of the European audience? Is there a difference to e.g. the American one?

They both very similar... Europeans tend to be very kind and respectful, they love to encourage bands and buy merch. I guess we are more popular in Europe so far...


5.)Dopethrone is the name of your band, an allusion to the real lifestyle of the band?

Hahahahahaha...
No comments...

6.)After a show, you're more likely to make the party – or to rest and recover?

Well, we always try to do both... But the party tends to always have the “upper hand”.


7.)Since there is Dopethrone (2008) – what was your finest moment on stage and why?

Roadburn, because it’s motherfucking ROADBURN and the Montreal Street fest in 2008, a fest all organised by street kids.
We met a lot of people at that fest, and our drummer (Carl B, former Downtrodden drummer) was there to party with us.
The after party was EPIC... But sadly, I don’t remember much...
Damn I was drunk...

8.)When will there be new material? In 2013 or do we need more patience?

We like to play new material live, we should be in studio by fall if all goes well.



9.)Tell us three things that you should not be missing on tour.

-Waking up early...
-Spending way too much time on the road without drinking ...
-Shitty food...

10.)What would you advise young bands out there? Any tips for making good doom,sludge music?

Listen to good music all day everyday. Get high/drunk as hell and let your inner demon beast scream through your fingers...


BIG THANK'S TO VYK AND DOPETHRONE
SEE YOU SOON IN THE STONERWORLD!!!
