Interview with Dominic V. vocalist of Displeased Disfigurement done by Patrick
1.Hello Dominic please introduce yourself to the readers?
Hey what’s up guys im Dominic , I’m the vocalist and bassist for displeased disfigurement from Middelburg south Africa.
2.When did you first discover metal music and who were some of the first bands you listened to?Who are some of your current favorite bands?
I discovered metal from a young age, my parents where blasting metal since the day I can remember. My dad pumping nice golden oldies such as Sabbath and zeppelin, but I found my first kerrang magazine when I was 11, with korn and slipknot and dimmu borgir, but when I knew there was something heavier , meeting my guitarist 4 years later he introduced me Death, Broken hope ,Napalm Death , Cannibal Corpse, Carcass … from there on I knew this is what I wanted .
Currently some of my top favs Cattle Decapitation, Analepsy , Aborted , extermination dismemberment, Devourment , Septic Congestions and the list goes on
3. Displeased Disfigurement was formed in 2001 what gave you all the idea to form this band?And who would you say are the bands biggest influences?
The band started in 2001 with Darius on guitar and Nick on drums, the dream was just to make heavy music something that our country never had, I joined the band in 2005 , just as the vocalist , at that point we knew a direction to go in and that was just to be brutal ….the whole idea of being in a band for us was to live our dream of being in a metal band and just sharing great times with good friends.
Our biggest influences in displeased disfigurement ranges from , Aborted to Dying fetus to benighted to Pathology….huge list of influences
4.What is the current line-up of the band?And for the readers who have never heard Displeased Disfigurement's music how would you best describe it?
Current line of Displeased Disfigurement is :
Darius Wilkin on guitar
Dominic Vorster on bass and vocal
Mitch Wilkin on Guitar
Riaan Ondier Els on drums
To best describe us : we are brutal slam death grind band, we bring all our influences to the listener , we have no limits as to how fast or how heavy we can go ,
5.Origin Of Abhorrence is the bands newest release how long did it take the band to write the music for this release?Does the whole band take part in the writing process or does one member write everything?
The whole album has taken us 3 years , we didn’t have any deadlines or due date for tracks to be released so we wrote as time went by , we all contribute to the band each member has their parts , we are unit and we feel all guys in the band have a different way of writing so, much better bringing different tastes to an album to give everybody a fresh feeling from the first track to the last track.
6.Dominic you are the vocalist of the band so I figure you take care of writing the lyrics where do you draw inspiration for the lyrics on the new release?
I Write most of the lyrics but again I prefer the whole group contribute, all of the songs are given titles by the person who wrote the riffs for the song from there get a name that suits , and I have the job of creating a story behind this topic, but as members they have certain things they would like to hear personally so we are pretty open for suggestion with each other, On both albums , Darius added back up vocals and contributes to back up vocal on stage.
This album is mainly focused on how messed up the human race is , dwelling In topics from slavery to addiction to the mass government that pollutes our social and media lives, we combine modern horror with daily lives.
7.Besides the new cd Origin Of Abhorrence are their any copies of the debut still available and what about any other merchandise? If their is any merchandise available where can the readers buy it?
Our first album “extermination process” , we still have albums available , all merch can be bought through our Facebook or band camp page.
8. Displeased Disfigurement comes out of South Africa's brutal death metal scene what is your opinion of the metal scene in South Africa?
The south African metal scene has grown into a gem of a scene , there is so much talent , passion , and dedication in our country, the scene in general has always been almost untouched by the international scene, but this has slowly changed and people are noticing more bands coming from here that are top quality, but with every scene it’s a growing one, south African metal has its own face and it will only get better…
9.Who are your favorite South African bands and are their any new bands you feel the readers should check out soon?
There is so many to mention
The overmind, Vulvodynia,Theatre runs red, Boargasm,Maximum Carnage, Desolation.
Upcoming bands :Resurrection of fetal remains and Creating the god form
10.Besides brutal death do you listen to any other forms of metal or music in general?If yes who are some of your favorite bands and artists?
I listen to all types of metal , nothing but metal though. My heart lies in brutal/slam/gore grind .
11.Dominic as mentioned you handle the vocals for the band when did you first start growling?Do you do anything special to keep your throat and voice healthy?
Ive been vocal ling since 2004 , the key with healthy voice and throat is not to strain your throat but rather using your diaphragm to get the pitches and range out, and if using the throat nothing that honey milk and some JACK DANIELS can fix.
12.Who are some of your influences and favorite vocalists?
Im huge fan of range and guttural dimension, travis from cattle has pretty much taken the limits with extreme vocals in my books…
13.Besides playing in Displeased Disfigurement do any of the members currently work with any other bands?
Indeed Me , darius and mitch are in Bleeding spawn, Mitch is the vocalist in that band, check us out!!
