.Ditheist is a Death Metal band from Chicago IL here is what others think about us :
When you go to McDonald’s, do you want your Big Mac to taste different every time? Hell no, you want a Big Mac. Same with Ditheist. You want some solid death metal, these are your dudes.
DITHEIST - Eternity of Nothingness
These guys are 100% legit. They blast out metal steeped in the great tradition of old school death metal while never sounding dated and boring. The drums are fucking amazing and the heavy riffs are deep dark and brutal.
2.How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recordings?
2.Me & our drummer Narcyz were heavily influenced by bands like Atheist, Death,Morbid Angel, Nile,Vader, Krisiun, Behemoth, Decapitated so what you hear on our records is a death metal written by big death metal/extreme music fans plus some progressive/jazzy passages .
3.The band has been around since 2006 but so far has only released one ep and full length, can you tell us a little bit more about the gaps in between releases?
3.We released only one EP & LP because for many years we couldn't find a vocalist even when recording Seduction of Demons EP we had to ask Erik Pertl to handle the vocals .
For the very same reason we didn't play shows for two years.
4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
4.Our lyrics focus on : Sense of existence , History,Anti-Christianity, Blasphemy,Black Humor.
5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Ditheist'?
5.Ditheist It's a doctrine that maintains the existence of two coequal gods or powers of good and evil , like in Manicheism(dualism).
Manichaeism taught an elaborate dualistic cosmology describing the struggle between a good, spiritual world of light, and an evil, material world of darkness.
6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
6.One of my favorites was a show with VITAL REMAINS! & VALE OF PNATH
how often do you get to play with death metal pioneers? They destroyed that night!
We had a set with lots of very fast songs we had a blast.
Our first show ever in 2006/07 was also very cool we played with couple rock bands they couldn't believe how fast & technically sound we were ,that experience encouraged us to play more shows.
