First off, just want to thank you for participating in this edition of Infidel Interviews. Could you start off by giving a little information about you to the audience? Whatever you feel comfortable with, but name, age, and where you live would be pretty standard?
Stefan Ljungdahl, lives in Stockholm.
Ivan Hirvonen, lives in Stockholm.
How do you enjoy where you live? Is there a vibrant music community where you are? Would you say you find that your local scene influences your attitude and/or creativity?
S: Stockholm is a nice town. I wouldnt say that I find the Music scene very inspiring though.
I: Unfortunatelly quite a many good Stockholm venues have closed during the last years.
What do you feel separates your music from the rest of the music in the Industrial music scene?
S: I Think our songs float in and out of the industrial genre really. We're not locked to a particular sound or genre and that makes us very dynamic.
What would you say are your favorite themes and topics that inspire you to compose? What draws you to those themes?
S: I've Always found myself drawn to the darker sides of music and art. It comes naturally somehow.
I: Yes, dark is the light!
The interview continues after this video and all further streaming and picture content...
Industrial and Attitude seem to go hand in hand. With global war, civil unrest, injustice, and political revolution being primary musical themes that dominate your music, how do you feel nowadays about the current state of world affairs?
