Q: What brought both of you guys to form and create Insidious Disease? Especially with Silenoz you being in Dimmu Borgir, a highly popular metal band, and Marc you being an ex member of Morgoth?
Silenoz: “The lust and need for the old school vibe and making music together with likeminded people was what brought us together in the first place. You know, always talking about doing something for the fun of it. For the most part that never happens, it usually starts and ends with alcohol infused drunk talk. But I launched it finally together with Jardar and Tony back in ’04. Then we brought Shane along shortly after that before I contacted Marc to see if he would consider doing the vocals. I’ve always been a huge fan of his style and I love others that is in the same vein, like Martin Van Druunen, Jeff Becerra, Chuck Schuldiner etc. those who have that “insane” feel and honesty in the delivery. They stand out and we didn’t want the typical gurgling, low end stuff like most bands do, even if that’s cool as well at times it doesn’t do much when identifying a band, it has become such an important thing especially the last 10-15 years. Identity and authenticity are what’s important in music. It doesn’t always have to be “groundbreaking”, “new” or “modern” sounding. A good record is a good record regardless.”
Marc: “I just agree with what Silenoz said. It´s the passion for the music, and of course being able to work with such great musicians is just awesome!”
