Interviews: ReDimoni

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Thrash Metal band, 
ReDimoni from Spain. 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? 

Hi there!

First, just for background and context, “ReDimoni” is a catalan word that literally means “Re-demon” but it’s used colloquially as a curse word. The idea came up spontaneously while discussing how we wanted to do with the band. We found it both funny and appropriate.

2.Why did you want to play this genre? 

Thrash Metal was one of the genres we grew up with. We wanted to connect with what we were passionate about and have fun with it.

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

Indeed. Some of us have known each other for a long time. I actually went to the same school as Cesc (the other singer) so I’ve known him since we were kids! Alex, our drummer, and I have been friends for over 30 years now and I’ve played with him and Cesc in various bands and projects. As for the new joiners, we also knew Bufal and Jorge before they joined the band. I think it’s important to have a good, easy going relationship with the rest of the band members.

4. Each band member favourite band? 

Cesc: Impaled Nazarene

Alex: Pungent Stench

Búfal: Obituary

JorgeC: Iron Maiden

Carles: old Slayer

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

Hard to say. In terms of music, I like jamming and let riffs come up. Sometimes while jamming with Alex we come up with good riffs and basis for songs. As for the lyrics, inspiration comes and goes. I find it more difficult to come up with a steady flow of lyrics or write something original than riffs but eventually ideas come up.

6. Where was your last gig? 

Our last gig was in Barcelona city in August 2020. At that time the codiv-19 restrictions had been eased up and gigs with a limited number of people were allowed. In a 150-people venue, only 30 people were allowed. We played two sessions that day.

7. Where would you like to act? 

I would personally love to play at the Brutal Assault Festival.

8. Whom would you like to feature with? 

Any of our fave Thrash metal bands from the 80s!!

9. Whom not? 

I would personally refrain from playing in events organized by right-wing individuals or organizations whose aim is to support any right-wing affiliated cause.

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

I’m not sure if to call it stage fright but I’m definitely always somewhat nervous before a show. I just can’t help it. It normally goes away when I’m preparing and setting everything up right before the gig, since it’s something that one does all the time at the rehearsal room. I suppose going through the motions of something familiar helps building up the right state of mind. I remember once in Madrid my mind went completely blank right before going to stage. That was scary haha but again, once I started going through the motions I felt much better. I’m not sure there’s a right tip for avoiding stage fright. Like I said, what works for me is going through the motions while setting up my gear on stage. Also, I found out that whenever we didn’t have the chance to go through a sound check I was a bit more nervous. I think it just comes down to getting familiar with the environment.

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

Old SLAYER, KREATOR, ABSU and, generally, all 80’s thrash bands. On the other hand, we’ve also been in contact with the Hardcore and Crust scenes so they made an impact on us, especially when it comes to the song structure and length. Straight to the point!

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

To be honest, I can’t think of anything out of the ordinary that someone may have asked.

13. What do you think of your fans? 

It’s great to hang out and get to know the people who follow us at our shows. We are definitely most grateful to have received and continue getting support! It’s rewarding to see one’s music has some sort of impact and motivates us moving forward.

14. What do you think of our site?

It’s complete, informative and easy to navigate. Content-wise, it covers a wide range of genres within the metal and related styles; Nintendocore and Star Wars metal being sub-genres I was not familiar with!

15. Something to add?

First off, apologies for the delay! Many thanks for your interest and the interview and, most importantly, for keeping the scene alive! Cheers
