Disma Talks Death Metal, French Moshing, and Chicken Suits in the Circle Pit
What have you guys been working on since Megalith?
We're finishing up two songs that are going to be on an extra seven-inch that comes with the vinyl version. After that, we'll be focusing on the second album and trying to set up some dates in Europe.
Have you been over there before?
I was there with my other band with Daryl, Funebrarum. It's a different experience than playing here. A lot of people come out to shows, which isn't always true here.
Are the crowds more enthusiastic?
For the most part. There are so many shows all of the time here people can be a little jaded. "Another show." You get used to stuff. Over there, it's more of a big deal.
What are the pits like over there?
I have to say France moshes the hardest. We didn't expect it.
What is the default mosh move for death metal?
It's more of a push pit. It never quite opens to a circle. Although, we did get a bit of that during Maryland Death Fest. Especially because the guy in the chicken suit was involved.
Tell me about the guy in the chicken suit.
I've only been to the two past Maryland Death Fests. But from pictures I've seen and stuff, it seems like he goes every year dressed in a yellow chicken suit. That's some dedication right there. He not only goes every year, but he also does it in a chicken suit.
And he started a circle pit?
I don't know if he started. But I'd like to assume so.
