Adalbert: Devilsight exists since 2009, but “Luna” from 2015 is your first album. Can you tell me about the bands activity during those years (2009-2015)
Devilsight: We’ve started with a some singles Cds like “Atracción Parasita – 2011, (Single) La ceguera – 2013, (Single) Mezclar dos Canciones -2013 and (Single) Del cartel – 2013.
Adalbert: Can you tell us “who is who” in Devilsight?
Devilsight: Devilsight are Alberto a.k.a. Stan (Lead singer/songwriter/Music), Exila nation (programming & Music) and Mercy (Synth – Live Support)
Adalbert: Why – as an artists – you decided to follow such style as dark electro?
Devilsight: We don´t choose this style, it just was burned in us. Maybe it is the reaction on the violence that we see in our country.
Adalbert: On your bandcamp site I found an information that Devilisght was brought to life because you were “frustrated by all the unjust things happening in their country”. What kind of “unjust things do you mean”.
Devilsight: In Mexico we experience murders every day, but this does not matter to anyone, so this is a great nation with an amazing culture damaged by the drug wars and extortion
Adalbert: Track “Del Cartel” tells about the violence caused by drug cartel wars in Mexico. Can you tell me are those things really affect your daily life?
Devilsight: The Drugs Cartels does not affect our daily lives, however it is a cancer that slowly takes over your mind
Adalbert: Let’s talk about music. The track “Siente” which opened the latest Halotan Records sampler, and is as well, the opening track on “Luna” has somehow melancholic atmosphere. Thus, the whole music is somehow aggressive, but it’s melodic as well. How can you manage those two opposite elements and put them together?
Devilsight: The melancholic atmosphere take us and carry on, along with an anger, it’s like thunder, begins with an amazing light and ends with a loud sound in the sky .
Adalbert: My faouvorite tracks are the heavier ones, especially “Extraños en la Oscuridad”, “Todo esta más cerca” or “Amante del demonio” – can you tell me something more about those tracks?
Devilsight: I wrote “Extraños en la Oscuridad” after a quarell with my wife and the lyric talks about the time I was away from her, because I felt like a “strange in the dark” (Extraños en la oscuridad). “Todo esta más cerca” is an interesting song because the lyrics are about hell, literally burning in hell. “Amante del Demonio” is a song about my lover, as how we make love one after one, and again, and again, burning in a cauldron of boiling wax.
