Interviews: In Divenire


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Black Metal band In Divenire from Italy. 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?

The idea of the name derives from a reflection on the need of the individual to grow continuously, what we are and what we can become is a constantly changing concept and so is art. Stopping means giving up.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Each member has a different background, however we all appreciate Black Metal. It is also a genre that allows you to say a lot in every single song. In fact, each text has been well cared for in order to convey our points of view. We believe it is one of the few genres that despite raw sounds is better able to express concepts that would otherwise be difficult to emerge within a song.

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

No, Andrea and Elia are the only ones who knew each other before the band took shape. It must be said that it was difficult to find the other members, it took several months. We met Alessandro on the advice of other musicians while Simone joined us after we found his flyer in a studio.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Andrea: In all honesty it is difficult for me to indicate a favorite artist over another. Each band has something to say in his songs and I can find myself both in agreement and in disagreement with each of their tracks. Often I am more interested in the sound of a song and the lyrics rather than the style of a particular artist, in fact I often hear albums where maybe I don't like 9 tracks of 10 but maybe in that one track that I appreciate I can feel a strong attachment bond, to the point of looping it for weeks. 

Elia: My favorite bands? Difficult question, sometimes it is necessary to separate the man from the artist and the artist from his art. Wanting to mention some essential figures for me I would say Joy Division, Death in June, Neurosis and Mayhem, but also a lot of Italian music. 

Alessandro: Well I don't have any real favorite bands, let's say there are many bands that I love and that I listened to dozens of times. I mainly listen to black metal both more old school like burzum, emperor, early ulver, dissection, than modern like deafheaven, mgla, altar of plagues but I don't disdain bands from other genres at all. However, I have always found the ability of black to create enveloping, hypnotic and vehement riffs unique. 

Simone: Mainly Moonspell, but Rotting Christ, Septic Flesh, Kampfar and Behemoth should also be mentioned. 

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

We are reflective people, sometimes it can happen that we get an idea from a mood or from a particular event but generally upstream of a song there is a reflection or a question that pushes us to ask ourselves further questions, so thought after thought we see a song taking shape.

6. Where was your last gig?

The last event we attended was in a small venue in Prato (Tuscany) on the occasion of the release of the new album of another local band with whom we shared the stage several times.

7. Where would you like to act?

This is a question that we have never asked ourselves, surely we would like to be able to play in as many cities and on as many occasions as possible, if we were to have the chance even abroad. In the end, as our previous shows have already shown us, the place doesn't count as much as the audience in front of you and with whom you share the stage.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Surely big names are tempting, however we believe that the pleasure of playing alongside other bands is determined by the possibility of sharing one's ideals and being able to establish a conversational relationship between their respective members. Art is the fruit of people after all.

9. Whom not?

Exactly the opposite of what was said above, the name doesn't particularly matter as much as the people behind it. It would be very plausible to find it unpleasant to participate in an event with a famous band with which there is no way to bond beyond the chatter of courtesy just as it would be plausible to find a great evening with a local band with whom to share your thoughts.

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

Not particularly, it is more perhaps the wait to get on stage to play a counterproductive role in these cases, once the amplifiers are turned on and the quarters are heard on the crash, the show comes to life almost autonomously. Putting it on laughing we would tell the beginners not to worry, once the headlights are turned on you will only be able to see your instruments, be careful not to fall off the stage. But seriously, if you are sure of your preparation in studio there is nothing to fear, your worst enemy is yourself.  

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

We don't think it's possible to mention a few bands. Undoubtedly there will be similarities with other Black Metal bands, that is inevitable, however considering our approach to the creation of our songs we believe there is not so much research on what we like as much as what is needed in that song to explain the idea we have.

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

Once a spectator at the end of our live started screaming "BIS!", To which after a second of silence we replied in unison "No.". Ok, it may sound weird said like that but repeating a song goes against our idea of continuous motion, therefore as an answer it was inevitably obvious.

13. What do you think of your fans?

In the majority of cases those who show appreciation for us are people who can understand the meaning behind our music, therefore each new single fan is a source of joy and pride for us and we can only be grateful to each of them for this.

14. What do you think of our site?

Today more than ever the artist is seen only in the clothes he wears on stage and from his way of appearing, being able to understand the reasons that move him becomes increasingly difficult. We are absolutely grateful to have had the opportunity to express our thoughts behind our music and this would not have been possible without you, for this and for the work you do we can only say a sincere thank you.

15. Something add?

We can only anticipate that we are already working on a second cycle of songs, the rest will only be dictated by time.
