Interviews: DYNFARI


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Black Metal band DYNFARI from Iceland. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

It was an idea from our drummer Jón Emil. It's an archaic Icelandic word, so it required some thought I suppose.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Back in the late 00s we were getting into these early "atmospheric" and depressive black metal bands such as Austere, Alcest, Forgotten Tomb. There was none of that more atmospheric or post-rock influenced black metal to be found in our native country, so while experimenting with writing our own music we ended up treading down this path.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Me and Jón Emil did know each other for a few years before starting the band, yes. We were together in an old-school death metal band before we started Dynfari.

4. Each band member favourite band?

For me personally, this is an impossible question, I'm not sure I will ever have one single all-time favourite band. I can say right now I am really into Carbon Based Lifeforms.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Late nights, insomnia, depression episodes.

6. Where was your last gig?

At Doomcember fest in Reykjavík.

7. Where would you like to act?

Wherever our work is appreciated.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Anyone who knows good changeover etiquette.

9. Whom not?

No toxic and terrible people.

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Nothing serious enough to be called stage fright, but it is important to spend some moments to get into the right mindset before a show. Contemplate what your show is about and what you intend to represent. Breathe deeply.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

From our inception, we have stated bands such as early-Sólstafir, Alcest and Austere as some sources of inspiration for our music. These were some of our early influences anyway.

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

A guest list pass to a festival. Through e-mail. Without ever having met the person.

13. What do you think of your fans?

The fans we have talked to have generally been a very nice and encouraging bunch. Cheers to them.

14. What do you think of our site?

Very diverse interviews.

15. Something add?

Just the constant.
