EMQ’s with DESONRA
Hi everyone! Welcome to our new EMQ’s interview with Brasilia, Brazil based Crossover Metal band Desonra. Huge thanks to drummer Beto Padilha for taking part.
What is your name, what do you play, and can you tell us a little bit about the history of the band?
My name is Beto Padilha and I play drums.
The band has been active since 2014 and seeking to add something to the independent scene, collaborating with bands from other states and organizing their own events. The band’s intention is to combine the heaviness of the instruments with the aggressiveness of their vocals, playing songs with a feeling of “eye to eye”, in an incisive, simple and direct way.
DESONRA has already passed through several cities in Brazil and has plenty of energy, anger and willingness to spread its message of protest.
How did you come up with your band name?
Lies and betrayals have always caught our attention, as it is a typically human behavior. So, we thought about what was the reward of those who deceive others? Dishonor (Desonra in Portuguese).
What Country/Region are you from and what is the Metal/Rock scene like there?
We are from Brasilia, the capital of Brazil. The scene here is not much different from the scenes in other parts of the world. It requires a lot of work and partnerships.
What is your latest release? (Album, EP, Single, Video)
Our latest release is called ‘Filho da Vida’ (Son of Life).
Who have been your greatest influences?
Metallica, Pantera, Gojira, Nasty and some bands from here: DFC, Macakongs 2099, Sepultura,
Ratos de Porão…
What first got you into music?
I remember when I saw a Metallica video and there, Lars was destroying everything! That day was when I realized I wanted to be a drummer!
If you could collaborate with a current band or musician who would it be?
It´s a hard question! Sepultura, Jinjer, Nasty…
If you could play any festival in the world, which would you choose and why?
Wacken, it´s a dream!
What’s the weirdest gift you have ever received from a fan?
Their money! hahaha. It´s a joke. Our fans are very serious, so there is no room for these things.
If you had one message for your fans, what would it be?
Much gratitude for the fact that you are listening to our music, for sharing our videos!
If you could bring one rock star back from the dead, who would it be?
Oh, man! Wait…Kurt Cobain!
What do you enjoy the most about being a musician? And what do you hate?
I love playing drums and composing, so everything that is related to these things is a pleasure for me. I don’t really hate anything.
If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?
Independent bands need space to show their work. We are so caught up in the old classic bands, many fantastic new bands end up dying without showing their work.
Name one of your all-time favourite albums?
“Chaos A.D.” – Sepultura
What’s best? Vinyl, Cassettes, CD’s or Downloads?
I still like CD’s, but the reality of streaming is here to stay.
What’s the best gig that you have played to date?
We played on Porão do Rock (Brasília, September 29th, 2018). It´s a big festival from our country.
If you weren’t a musician, what else would you be doing?
I’m actually something else. We don’t live by music, so we need to work. I’m a video editor.
Which five people would you invite to a dinner party?
Chino Moreno, Max Cavalera, Igor Cavalera, Tati from Jinjer and James Hetfield.
What’s next for the band?
We are in the process of composing for our new album.
What Social Media/Website links do you use to get your music out to people?
Everything about the band you can find at:
Jaffa Cakes? Are they a cake or a biscuit?
Sure, a biscuit. hahaha 😊
Thank you for your time. Is there anything else that you would like to add?
I just want to thank you for the opportunity to show a little about the band.
