Exclusive Interview: Dinnamarque Delves on Their Creative Tastes, Their Inspirations & Their New Single “Out of Control”

We are happy to have you today. Tell us about your 2021 so far!

Rafael Dinnamarque: Hi everyone, it’s a pleasure to be talking to you!!

Well our 2021 has been a bit troubled by the pandemic situation and also the political problems we are going through, but as far as the band is concerned it was the moment when we could sit down and finish our second album ‘The Darkside of Human Nature’ which we will soon announce the release date.

 Can you share more with our readers about your latest release “Out of Control”?

Rafael Dinnamarque:  The song ‘Out of Control’ is the first single from our new album and talks a little about the monsters that exist inside each one that in troubled times are wanting to go out to fight or bring good and evil depending on the situation.

What inspired the single?

Rafael Dinnamarque:  I think everyone in the world constantly goes through this phase where the person has ideas, has thoughts and wants to express in some way, but often this becomes a monster inside them because many times people are not understood and this generates a certain recluse in them or even they are people who suffer prejudice for having their ideas and opinions and this consumes the person from the inside until he explodes.

How did the group first get started?

Rafael Dinnamarque:  The band started in 2002 as a project of mine after leaving a band that I sang because of differences in ideas and ways of conducting things, in 2005 I had a brief stint as a bass player in a band that Riccardo Linassi played and after the band left I I invited him to join the project. After the first formation that had besides Riccardo, Maycon Oliveira and Regis Vital on guitars, we took a break and in 2009 we were nominated for the W.O.A Metal Battle tie, where we won the tie in the state where we live. Ronan Oliveira and Leo Lanny joined the band for this tie, who are still in the formation of the band.

How did you all decide on the name Dinnamarque?

Rafael Dinnamarque:  Actually Dinnamarque is my name but in the identification it has only one letter N and to get the best look I decided to put 2 letters N.

And the choice was because band names have become very difficult to find and when we find it still has issues with usage rights.

How would you describe your sound to someone who just listened to your music for the first time?

Rafael Dinnamarque:  Well some people say that the band is prog-metal other power metal but I think we are metal, there’s a little bit of everything we hear and that we have as a reference in music in general.You hear in our songs pieces that refer to Black metal and more pop bits, as they say that Brazil is a melting pot of music I think that’s more or less what our sound is

How do you get pumped up before a big event?

Rafael Dinnamarque:  Well before any show we are always focused so that it comes out 100% perfect for the audience, but we are also always in a good mood so that the show is very light and relaxed.

Are you currently working on any special projects?

Rafael Dinnamarque:  We are now focused on the release of the CD, but already with plans to start the production of the third album which is already with a lot of songs ready and with the songwriting process completed, and we are focusing on 2022 to do a European tour in addition to festivals and Metal events in Brazil.

Thank you for speaking with us! For our final question, is there anything else you would like to add?

Rafael Dinnamarque:  We want to thank you for the invitation to speak with you, and send a save from Brazil to everyone in Kenya !!

Exclusive Interview: LeadXeno Delves on His Creative Tastes, His Inspirations & His New Single “Betray Me”

LeadXeno

Thanks so much for taking some time to rap it out with us here through an interview!  Stoked to talk to you about your new single & much, it’s great to have you with us.  Let’s get everyone on the same page before we start – what got you interested in music?

Honestly I don’t remember, The earliest I remember having an interest in music would probably be screaming Creep by Radiohead at the top of my lungs. That or literally every Michael Jackson song ever written, HUGE MJ fan.

Since deciding you wanted to be an artist, what’s the journey been like & where has it taken your music?

We’re really only just getting started like the journey has been long and tiring about 4 years to be precise and I’ve been making shite music for more than half of it but the whole idea of music and the whole foundation of it has completely and utterly saved and changed my life on multiple occasions.

“Betray Me” is captivating from its combination of hyped up beats and catchy lyrics. What is the motivation behind such a lyrically rich and melodically unique single?

Sleeping With Sirens. 100%. Obviously it’s not a carbon copy or the same formula as SWS but it is definitely very inspired by bands like them, Blink 182, The melody on the hook is really inspired by Chad Tepper “Loser”, vocally very Liam Gallagher inspired and just an all round anthem for the left behind, used and broken.

Which release of yours has had a large impact on your life, whether the storyline was based on a life experience or the process of putting the song together helped you approach music production differently?

As of the time this is being written I’ve only got 2 official singles out (the being Not Yet and Betray Me) both have really boosted me in very different ways. For example Not Yet changed my life because that was the first video shoot I’d been on, and it was the first original song of mine my mum had ever heard and it’s my most streamed song etc. But on the other hand Betray me was the first song I ever had on the radio, and to this day it’s one of my best vocal performances I’ve given on a song so it’s really hard to choose between them it’s like saying who’s your favorite kid so id have to just be the boring dad and say I love them both equally!

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

I work REALLY hard and I mean like REALLY hard, I’m really not the type to toot my own horn but 24/7 my mind is only on and always will be on ways to improve my music. Vocally, Production-wise, Collaborations, Promotion, any way you can really think of to try and improve music-wise I’ve probably thought about it. And I’ve got about 100 unreleased songs so it’s not always just mentally.

Are you working independently or with any production house or recording label?

1000% Independent at the minute, the idea of having a label behind me doesn’t terrify me but they would have to just want me. I refuse to filter myself and I refuse to be anyone’s puppet.

What’s your motto or the advice you live by?

Love. Your. Self. I think a lot of people underestimate the power you have when you love yourself for me it’s the most important thing to have in your life ever and I think so many people are scared to love themselves because they wouldn’t want to come across as a cunt or arrogant or self-obsessed and you can definitely go wrong and become an egomaniac but it’s just about having that self-control and treating everyone who deserves it with the same respect you give yourself. Then it’s balanced.

Do you have any dream collaborations? Who are they?

Most definitely, right now Oli Sykes of Bring Me The Horizon is top of the list but it changes like every week. Travis Barker, Yungblud, Machine Gun Kelly, Kellin Quinn, Any of the Gallaghers and definitely blink 182 there my biggest inspiration by far!

For our final question, is there anything else you would like to add?

Zero Boundaries is either out or is coming out very soon by the time you’re reading this it’s a 5 song, 15-minute ep with a bonus track on Spotify. Go listen. Definitely tell me what you think. Have a great day and love yourself!!!

Brian Iannucci’s Latest Single “You Stole My Heart Away” is Bound To Sweep You Off Your Feet With its Idyllic Tonal Beauty

Brian Iannucci’s excellent instrumental arrangement and his recent track “You Stole My Heart Away” are worth a listen. The song churns up Ballade tastes while attracting listeners with relaxing piano arrangements. The musician is a versatile performer who is enhanced by his keyboard abilities. The captivating chords of the piano, which evolve as the tune proceeds, convey love and affection. A smooth meandering soundtrack serves as a significant attraction for the listeners.

“You Stole My Heart Away” is about as apt a title as you can get for the music and lyrics that unveil when you press play. The single has a minimalism to it that initially exposes the vocal range and poetry; the focus is on the voice, the rhythm, the lyrics, and the sentiments behind it all, and thankfully – Brian Iannucci’s sound delights in every aspect, even when delivered in such a natural and vulnerable manner. The longer you listen, the more the music appears to be part of something far larger.

Brian Iannucci’s performance and writing flair shine brightly throughout this song. It’s a terrific spot for fans to start their journey through the artist’s music, and it’s an excellent illustration of the unique genius and originality that exists, flourishes, and matures just beneath the popular radar.

Josh Christina

Rekindle the flavors of rock and roll with Josh Christina’s latest track “Weekend Night in America.” His latest single has a catchy beat and hypnotic panning to its production, with an addictively eighties-esque bass-line and sensuous vocals and perfectly recognizable for its tone and character. The organic aspects of guitar and drums feel both nostalgic and utterly refreshing.

The intensity of yesteryear is present, but there is a sense of freshness in the composition and delivery.

An outstanding musician, justifiably raising the roof with this single and witnessing his fan base expand immensely. Turn up the volume on this one.
