Interview With Demona (Cl)

Posted in Entrevistas with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on enero 28, 2015 by lavieenrosenfeld




1) How do you feel to be interviewed from your of  homeland ?

Demona : Greetings. Well, entertaining.


2) Before Demona, in what other projects had you been? and what was the history of each one?

Demona : ABefore Demona had a band with some friends called Corrosion, but nothing serious. We played live and recorded only once a trial. After, with two other friends we made a band called Poisoned, but lasted only a few months and died quickly. In both bands, I just played guitar.



3) How is born your love for Metal?

Demona :  I do not know the truth, just step! As at twelve, at an age when one searches for his identity and explores styles, I remember feeling that Metal was what I liked, what moved me, which made me feel identified.



4) What is the origin of the name Demona and why you chose it? Under what label discografico work?

Demona :  The name Demona was super random, haha. Do not know why I went Yea wanted the word “Demon” as the name of my band. I also told me that a good name must be one word and easy to remember. As I am a woman I took the English word “demon” and I added the “a” at the end to give the feminine touch.

I am currently under the label Hells Heaadbangers.

5) How originated the idea of Demona?

Demona : The idea came one: One day I was bored in my house and I started playing guitar, I did a song and decided to record it with a base drum machine. As I was alone, I wanted to try to sing grabándome myself after doing a quick point, and that is the beginning of Demona.
I liked and I was able to do more than a simple project.


6) What is the current line-up of the band? and what other members have played in or with Demona?

Demona : I’m currently alone, like it used to be, like the beginning. I worked with Max, Andrés and Mauricio when i still lived in Chile. With Gabrihell, Jeff and Antoine when i was living in Canada, and i had the chance to count with huge collaborations such as Witchhammer (Witchtrap) and Tormentor (Desaster/Asphyx

7) How was the story of your foray into Canada and how was that experience? There was a before and after?

Demona : Demona was not well received at first in the metal scene in Chile, but the opposite. In some way or another was struck and some did not like that. I began to experience a kind of bullying (haha), threats, abuse in some way or another.

I was tired and bored of fighting against the current of fools, so a typical day after a long talk with a Canadian friend, take the reins and plan to do a mini tour of the land. After many months and this organization took place. Being there in Québec I realized I needed something that was not giving my country and perhaps i could find it here, so I was leaving everything behind in Chile.

Sure there an after: Starting from scratch with significant prior experience.


8) We understand that you adventure in the land of the Samurai (Japan) and we have this in mind: how you was able to sum up this feat that not many have managed to do (speaking in terms of Chilean musicians)? You could dispel any prejudice to its music scene and learn something of their culture?

Demona :Japan to me was a re-start in my life, haha. I was depressed, bored, unmotivated for long and almost ready to decide not to continue playing with Demona, when Rock Stakk contact me for playing records in Japan alone with Japanese musicians. Of course, this plan was in our minds (Demona and Rock Stakk records) many years ago when Demona only had a couple of demos released.

At last we finish it and voilà! Demona live in Japan … I felt that everything I’ve had to live has been nothing in vain and that the effort and perseverance are being paid.


When I finally got to the island was extremely happy, I could not believe it, I was over-exalted and very anxious! ahaha, everything was so different. After that in the same show everything was amazing, the place was packed, fans drew pictures with me and I tried to speak, supported, bought all the material, and even the same Overdrive I welcomed the performance.

Enjoy the thousand per-cent and definitely go again


9) You had made contact with the Japanese scene before your raid? What bands that country recommend us to analyze?

Demona: I had a couple of contacts yes, but not many. About Japanese bands I would say you have to be open minded to love what they do in their entirety, but of my favorites: Sabbat , Metalucifer  Gastunk  X Japan Loudness , blah blah blah.

10) What you can told us about the chilean metal scene in your experience years? which bands of this country need to be in our collection of metal hahaha?

Demona : the chilean metal scene in my good times (haha) was machist and elitist, but very passionate and with support of each other, have many bad points like the “cahuines” (no se que sea) and the mother center which generate, sure depence of the side haha…but have a nice points also, is a brotherhood, we’re we support each other with passion dedication exclusive

For me is a important have to Force of Darkness  , Atomic Aggressor , Pentagram , Insanity , Invocations Spells .

11) What are the influences on the music of Demona?

Demona : The influences are varied. I could tell from the national classic folklore to the most remote and underground bands that may exist both as metal, punk, and so on and synth pop. Now, if you ask me specifically about influences on the metal I limited to name names, because at this point are already too many bands that run my inspiration!


12) Now we want to know who is the woman (If it is haha) behind this band: Who are you, how many hobbies do you have, favorite bands, hobby, married or single, etc? . Forward take the microphone as we say.

Demona :  Hahaha, yeah, I’m a woman. Well, I sing, I wash you, you iron them, I make you ate, hahaha.

So i am Constanza Godoy, an alternative Chilean model (or trollmodel as would my uncles haha) started seven years ago with his band DEMONA as a project without expectations, which four years ago decided to learn to sew their own clothes and that around the time in his career and official work, trying to live life as she likes.

Do not have much time for hobbies, but I have some hobbies like take pictures, record videos, clean the house, hahaha. But overall my time is divided between music, my creations and modeling … And my partner, with whom I have a serious relationship.

13) what you could tell us about you proyect of desing clothes?How it’s started?You learn by yourself o you have formal education?You had some vip costumers?

Demona : Excellent motherfuc**er question! Haha.

I come from a dysfunctional family, like many people so I grew up
always next to my mother’s arm, like many too. My grandmother and several of her sisters are dressmakers outstanding in its town around their cities (especially among the ladies of her age), my mother and younger sister learned from my grandmother, then without considerable studies have always sewn to the perfection. I always saw machines and genres in the house, frequented the shop and I remember my grandmother even trying to use industrial sewing machine traumantemente my fingers, haha.
In 2011 when I move to Canada, I spent my first two years without doing much, since it was not a permanent resident even (things immigration, etc), then boring wanted to learn to sew to fix my own clothes and make my leggings that I love, etc. So everything started. A friend wanted me to buy those first leggings I did and slowly people started asking for my creations to the point of making me from my line of handmade clothing SPEED CLOTHES.
The girls like to be unique and look good, even if they are metaleras, for one thing to be metal and the other is dressed badly.

14) We understand that the band is your hobby and your official job is you store, it is?. And our question arises General musicians den emphasized that his band is the official work and projects of other areas are taken as hobbies you think? You remind us of Gothic metal artist Mana Japanese guitarist Moi dix mois / Malice mizer having a clothing brand.

Demona : Yes. I hesitate to say that music is my job, because I do not make significant money with it, but it’s something I do with passion and dedication, just like a real job. I do not want my music to make a forced career. I mean, if things in life happens to be my real job, then so be it, but not my goal. So my clothes is my job, because I mixed my love of metal, with metaleras look that we want.

Lately, I’ve run into several people that speaks to me of making metal music or your job or career … OUFFF, say or think something is great. I mean, I do not know, hahaha … It is valid for those who consider something, but I prefer to leave it as the window of the coffin of my feelings, therapy for my happiness, the metal download without pressure or high ambitions … This will leave the destination .

Malice Mizer! Mana is much more gothic and Japanese, haha. But of course! It is a clear example that one can supplement what you love what you do with your life. Also, the music is closely connected with clothing in general and for me to have a staging is important, especially when a specific style is followed, in this case the Metal.


15) What are your plans for 2015 ?

Demona :

It has been three months I’m living in Ohio, USA, with my partner. At the end of this month I go to record an EP that will be released in a vinyl 7 under the American label Hells Headbangers and will be launched during the HHR associated with the distribution.

16) at the end of the interview, do you have any message for you readers?

Demona :Thanks a lot for your time and for this interview, a big hug to every metalhead who follow Demona, and cheers for every rude girl. in september I will play in Hells Headbash Festival 2, produced by the same label. Then will come a period of composition for my third album and perhaps at the end of the year I will go to Chile, I’m still in talks about it. About my clothes, I am now also bold, and to all the prejudicial  I dedicate these words that Dave Carlo from Razor wrote to me: “I do not know how any metal fan (male or female) would object to this … UNLESS they’re missing the point: The more women into our music We have the better “!
