Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to up and coming bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Denfire of Misconducters.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
DENFIRE: I formed Misconducters in London/UK in early 2008, where I lived for ten years. After a few releases and countless gigs in the midlands and south east of England I moved back to Brazil, where I’m originally from, and reformed the band – who’s been basically putting out an album every year since.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
DENFIRE: Not only, but mainly 60s, 70s and 80s rock-oriented music: Motörhead, The Animals, Napalm Death, King Crimson, Misfits, Death, Thin Lizzy, Cro-Mags, Angel Witch, New Model Army, Nuclear Assault, Alice Cooper, Tank, Chuck Berry, Venom, Monster Magnet, English Dogs, The Obsessed, Mountain, Bad Brains, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Discharge, Sir Lord Baltimore, Warfare, Living Colour… not to mention innumerable obscure and independent bands, singers and instrumentalists I played with or listen to.
METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
DENFIRE: It’s Misconducters’ fifth album, ‘Pariah’. It was the first time that I recorded it 100% by myself, playing all the instruments, since there was a lineup change last year and that was an opportunity to put together something more in the vein of how I see Misconducters should sound like. It’s honest, trendless heavy music, and should appeal to people who are not interested in following any scene dogmas.
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
DENFIRE: A very tight and energetic set. As cliché as it may sound I reckon it would be fair to say we deliver it better live.
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
DENFIRE: I really don’t know, because fortunately I realized planning anything in life that’s more than middle term is pretty much a guaranteed recipe for frustration. So I’m basically drawing some drafts, keeping myself productive and looking forward to recording an EP with this new lineup later on this year.
