This is interview was recorded and submitted by Shane Bugbee. Follow him on his homepage.
In this interview we talk about a recent controversy DAGON and his band attracted, they were accused of being nazis and national socialist sympathizers, about the recent nazi controversy, love and hate, christianity, satanism, race and race relations, eugenics, genocide and the holocaust, genocides thru-out history, religion, slayer, black metal, dragons youth and family, the bugbees being run put of town, how small your life becomes when you deal in extreme art and how the extreme artist has to live within society like a felon, living and experiencing death, not fitting in as a kid who looks white in a south american culture, living in saudi arabia, the compulsion of speaking your mind, the compulsion of expression.
I contacted dagon after a controversy arose over his interest in world war two symbology and national socialism, this isn’t to say he subscribes to those beliefs, it is to say he was interested in them as far as artistic expression and understanding goes.
I find dagon to be very smart, thoughtful and focused and I really love his artistic output… find his band INQUISITION for starters!
