Hi, and thanks for your
time. First of all you can introduce your band to the
world over here.
Bre Beskyt Dyrene (everything): Aquefrigide is my
Tragical Solid Solist Theatret Noise Project! I want my
project to be a Theatre of Noise in some way, a point of
implosion, to express the unexpressed.
You chose a pretty catchy name for your band. Why did
you chose this name, and has it a special meaning?
Bre: Oh, thanks a lot! Aquefrigide is the name of
an ancient torture system used during the inquisition
era to condemn and burn witches. They used to dip women
in a tub filled with water. If the body was caught
floating, which was obvious considering that bodies
usually float inside water, the woman was condemned as a
witch and burned alive. I am really fond on witchcraft!
I liked the meaning of Aquefrigide because it makes me
think about my life... only a cheat!
Aquefrigide was born in 2003 as a solo project, but
became a real band in 2005. Why did you decided to
become a band at the end, and how did you guys meet?
Bre: Actually Aquefrigide has never been a band!
I have just tried to increase the live sound with two
friends of mine but I didn’t found a really good feeling
with them... I am not looking for performers but people
to share noisy sonorous trips. For now I definitvely
prefer the digital machines, they know how to be violent
as I like!
How should you describe your music?
Bre: Like a monster able to kill and also to eat
his own creator!
You say to be influenced by bands like Joy Division,
Ministry and Nine Inch Nails but also by bands like
Sepultura and Nirvana. Their music really is different
from eachother. How did you manage to be influenced by
both sides of the elder alternative generation?
Bre: I love these bands and I grew up listening
to them. But I always try to keep distances from other
bands’ influences. I try to assimilate but not to repeat.
I try to look for new music, or I would die of boredom.
Your debut album has recently came out. What can we
expect of it?
Bre: Expect some poisonous attack to the human
ethic… a devastating gigantic wave of salty water!
Four songs of the debut album are already uploaded on
your MySpace profile. I think the songs all stand decent,
and already shows a certain variety. Why did you choose
these songs as 'promo'?
Bre: No particular reason behind ! All the songs
in my album have the same importance for me! I just need
When I look at the pictures, I see that you are in a
band with a certain image. How important is image for
you, and why did you choose this image?
Bre: Surely the make up is an extension of my
personality! The transformation is exciting... but I
don't give such a great importance to it. What really
counts for me is a long hypnotic and unfriendly
motive... a long sour language... my ghosts that wants
to express themselves! And... I let them do! There are
new horizons for corpses!
You are on a pretty new and independent label,
SubSound Records, which currently only has two bands
signed. How did you get in touch with them?
Bre: Lets see... We came from the same country…
We came with the same hate… We need to create a new
reality to fuck the stupid Italian lobotomized masses…
What else? We love our violent family!
Why did you decide to take the step to a newborn
label in stead of releasing some more demos to watch out
for other offers?
Bre: Because Subsound Records is the only r-e-a-l
independent Italian violent label! We come with the same
What can we expect of Aquefrigide in the (near)
Bre: A promotional tour and then a second album,
I already have new tracks to record! Then... the sun
still pretended to shine ... don t forget to remember
the bones in your closet… spit me away. She feels worse
every fucking hour! Oh, I am so neurocasticly silly!
Thanks a lot for your time answering my questions. If
you have some final words, you can add them here.
Bre: It was just a pleasure! Thanks to you too!
Best regards to all supporters of Aquefrigide! Thank you
