What did you do in the last six months?
We worked hard on the album releasing, to be prepared at the best of our possibilities for this awaited appointment.

What have you got in your wallet now?
Some euro cents, a condom and some receipts… Nothing else!

Why have you chosen this name for your band?
Music has always represented the highest ambition for us, the real dream to realize in our life, what we would like to do before our death. This is what “Desire Before Death” means.

Talk to my about the history of the band!
We play together since 2005 and within a few months we released the self-titled demo. In 2007 we recorded the EP “In The Eyes Of Tragedy”. After spending several years on stage all over Italy and taking part in some festivals in Germany, in 2011 the work on the first LP “Beyond The Threshold” began. At the beginning of the year we signed a deal with Murdered Music / Coroner Records to release this album recorded between Fear Studio in Ravenna and Dysfunction Studio in Modena and Mastered at Finnvox Studios by producer Mika Jussila. Now we’re ready to hit the stages again!

How important is the look/appearance for your band?
We are conscious that the “look” is one of the most important skill in this business, however we think is mostly important to appear as we are.


Tell me about the new album “Beyond The Threshold”.
Are you fully satisfied of it? We’re proud of this album, we worked really hard on it and we did it with great passion.. But as every musician knows, it’s hard to be satisfied at all! We are always looking to improve ourselves searching for new challenges.

Which is the higher point of the album?
In this album we worked a lot on the sound trying to make it warmer, but focusing on structure and composition as well.

…And the lower point?
You know… It’ our first album, we definitely spent too much time to make it!

How would you define your sound?
A good mix of guitar riffs that recalls the swedish style with the industrial sound of the rhythm part and powerful screaming.

Metalcore. Describe for me this word.
Is the fusion between extreme metal and hardcore punk music, it’s like Pantera playing a jam session with Sick Of It All.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Californian beaches, sun, lot of gigs, beers, metal and tons of chicks! This is the path of happiness!!

Tell me some of the bands you admire.
We love bands such Unearth, Fear Factory and In Flames

What song is in your head right now?
We are in love with “La Isla Bonita” by Madonna!!

Name 3 words that describe your band.
Aggressive, catchy and powerful

Which are the best and the worst qualities of your band?
Five members means five different points of view and that could be our strong point, but, at the same time, it’s very hard to match our ideas, you can image the fightings!

What is the most embarrassing situation you’ve ever been with Desire Before Death?
We lived it in a past show some years ago.. We were playing in a club far from our city, in a street where usually you can find prostitutes and these girls were inside the club dancing on our music! It was a really weird situation!

Have you got a good reason to be in Behind Magazine?
We love action sports and we think our music could be a good background for this kind of events, so it’s really cool stay on your mag!

Have you got something to add?
Yeah, thank you for giving us this space on your webzine
