Quick introductory interview.

Interview with Dysphorian Breed.
1. Who are you and how did the band get started?

My name is David Fredriksson and I’m the sole member of this Swedish band, or rather one man project, Dysphorian Breed. The adventure started as recently as in the spring of 2014. During this year my interest in making music was rekindled after joining a local black metal act. Although it is nice to scream myself into delirium, I wanted to do something more personal and closer to heart. From the ashes of black metal Dysphorian Breed was spawned… or something along those lines.

2. Why did you choose Doom, and how would you describe your style?

have listened to doom metal for many years and it sort of felt natural to pick up the guitar and play slow power chords rather than anything else. The style of Dysphorian Breed can simply be called doom metal I feel. There are many influences ranging from funeral, sludge, death and gothic doom metal which are sort of blended together in some fashion.

3. What would you consider to be the high point of your career so far?

There haven’t been that many high points in the short life span of Dysphorian Breed this far, but the debut album has just been released which is a great experience for me. Another noteworthy high point in my personal music career was back in around 2003 when my old project Tanha appeared on a compilation from Stijn Van Cauter called “From the NULLL Void”. Not much happened with the project after that, but it was a fun time nevertheless.

4. Which three bands most influenced you?

For this project I would say that the style is a blend of My Dying Bride, Shape of Despair and Grief and therefore they are likely to be the biggest influences. The first two are probably my favorite doom metal bands of all time, but I wouldn’t dare to say that Dysphorian Breed even comes close to their greatness.

5. What are your plans for the near future?

Right now I’m awaiting, or rather hoping for, feedback for the debut album “The Longing for the Tides of Metamorphosis”. I also have a few tidbits left for maybe another album, a single or maybe even a split release. More to come in other words.

6. If there is anything you would like to add, the last words are yours.

I can’t even begin to comprehend how this site has survived as long as it has, but I really do appreciate it! I remember when I used to hang out on doom­metal.com a decade ago and all the bands I found out about here.

Please take a look at my Bandcamp page if you are interested in what the hell this music sounds like.
