"Music Talk : Destiny in Chains"

Destiny in Chains is one of Cairo’s most promising metal outfits. The band started back in 2006 and through the changes in lineup and sound, Destiny in Chains seems to have found their spot finally. We met up with Zander from DIC to have a bit of a chat…

At the Core
The band refers to their sound as Metalcore/Hardcore – which can be a little hard to envision – vocalist Zander sheds some light: “We started six years ago, but our sound has been evolving so has our lineup. We’re all really big fans of bands such as Lamb of God, All that Remains and As I Lay Dying.”

The Scene
We ask Zander about his views on the growing metal scene in Cairo: “It’s pretty awesome to see that Metal is not as shunned as it used to be. Sure, there is still some judgment, but I’m sensing the change everytime I go to a metal gig and I see the amount of people in attendance increasing.” He explains “It’s interesting, because we do try sometimes to create a relevant sound in our music (For example; “Last Forever”) in which we incorporate oriental sounds and solos. That’s just a small part of our music, but in a way it’s an ode to our culture.” He adds.

Grand Prize
Destiny in Chains recently won the top honors at the Metal Blast Anniversary gig, which saw them record tracks in Vibe Studios in Cairo – so are the guys releasing an album soon? “Yes, very soon. And, it won’t sound like home recordings anymore!” Says Zander. -

"Interview With DESTINY IN CHAINS - 2/10/2012"

JZ: For those who still don't know DESTINY IN CHAINS, could you make an introduction about the band's history, style and influences?

DIC: DESTINY IN CHAINS is a five piece Metalcore band started in 2006 and is influenced by a wide variety of Metalcore bands back then and Groove such as AS I LAY DYING, ALL THAT REMAINS, LAMB OF GOD... We have one EP and one full length album released in 2010 and we are currently working on our new one.

JZ: The band has recently shot a video for the song "Shout Your Name". What can you tell us about it? When will it be released?

DIC: Well, it was shot and edited by Blackout studios. They are really professional in the field of photography and videos as well. Our video should be released within this month, but what currently is happening in our country is what caused the delay. The video will be aired on MTV Arabia, which makes us the first Egyptian Metal band who gets a chance like this and it's also kinda tense since we are representing the Egyptian Metal scene... So let's hope that people really like it!

JZ: After your debut EP and your first full length album... is the band working on any new release?

DIC: As we mentioned earlier... yes, we are. We already have about three new songs that we played two of them in our previous show and will be played in the next show as well.

JZ: Let's talk about the event. It's really a unique line up of very distinctive and different styles, how did you all get together, and do you think this will help each band to reach newer fans?

DIC: Hope so! The line up we never planned for actually, but we all got excited, specially because of DARK PHILOSOPHY. As everyone knows, it's their first show at El Sawy Culturewheel, so it's very exciting, but yeah, it's totally unique show indeed with different styles. For sure, when it comes to new fans all bands are seeking new listeners, disregarding the style or the genre, but after all let's just make it a good show for the whole fans, whatever what they are listening to, or the band they are coming for!

JZ: Last question. For the fans that are coming or are still thinking to come... What would you tell them and promise to give them in that show?

DIC: As we promise you, this will be a concert after a while with some new changes with a great line up and original bands!! See you all there! - Jorzine
