Interviews: Dymbur

This is a new interview with the Folk Metal band Dymbur from India. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

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

‘DYMBUR’ is a word of KHASI origin that translates into English as “Fig Tree”. The KHASI people are an indigenous tribe, who live in the state of Meghalaya, which is in the northeastern part of India. ‘DYMBUR’ - The fig tree symbolizes rebirth, progression, and evolution, of victory after a struggle, Fresh leaves from old branches forming new shapes defining one of nature’s basic laws, the ability to regenerate and grow anew after a dry spell. We planned it since we wanted a name that symbolizes strength and the Fig Tree sets the example.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We started off by playing Djent/Progressive/Experimental Metal and had our influences from bands like Meshuggah, Veil of Maya & Monuments to name a few. In November 2021, we announced our shift towards folk metal since we wanted to blend metal music with our traditional instruments and culture.

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

Yes, we’re all from the same city.

4. Each band member's favourite band?

Cornelius: Sleep Token

Mayson: Architects

Different situations in our society ignite different feels that we strongly feel about and hence we want the message to spread through our songs.

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

Honestly, we haven’t experienced any weird situations with a fan. I guess it might happen sometime soon. Lol…

13. What do you think of your fans?

Ohh!! They are so supportive and we never expected to gain support from a few international fans as well, they bought our merch and our debut album even though they’ve never seen us live. We must say these guys are loyal!
