In 2019 in Portugal Master Dy emerged. This heavy metal band was formed by Dy Moob in Porto, Portugal and is a seven piece outfit. Recently they have released a new single and a new album is in the making! About this new album and single, and about some other things, I had a nice chat with Master Dy founder Dy Moob!
Hey, thanks for taking the time for an interview with Maizter Underground!
I appreciate the invitation, I hope that out there you are all well!
How are you doing? Covid and all.
We’re all fine, two of our members had this disease, but now they’re all recovered and moving on with rehearsals and recordings.
How did the band came to excist?
The project was born in my hands (Dy Moob) I was still alone and had arrived in Portugal just 3 months ago, I didn’t know anyone around here and during a borderline disorder crisis from which I suffer I decided to give myself one more opportunity, after 17 years in music and several experiences that didn’t make me happy. I founded Master Dy with the aim of being a self-help and a way to unload my creative energy into something new.
Can you introduce the bandmembers one by one?
Yes of course! I’m Dy Moob, the vocalist, band creator and songwriter, we have Draco who is the lead guitarist, Perseus who is the bassist, Cepheus who is our left base guitar with Cethus who is the right rhythm guitar, then we have Aquilla who is on keyboards and Hydra who is our drummer, they all have between 10 and 20 years of experience in music and I named them in honor of the constellations of the Andromeda galaxy, because to be part of Master Dy one star is not enough I need real constellations!
You guys call yourself Master Dy How did you come up with this name and what does it mean?
Well initially the band should have my name: Dy Moob, but as the theme would be focused on the occult and I would like to show that your own master is inside you, I put Master in front of my name, it shows that how I can Be my own master you can all be your own masters too.
Can you tell me something about the journey this far? Where did the creativity came from for your first “own work” and who (if any) did inspire you?
Well, with only two years of band I’m proud to say that we got unexpected visibility by releasing the first album this year, Unknown Sound was started by me when I was still alone, then I had the help of two members to finish some of the songs and mine. most inspiration for lyrics comes from Ghost Bc, and for instrumental that is that part I don’t do alone, we were inspired by Arch enemy, Dragon Force and Dimmu Borgir.
What are the (longtime) goals with Master Dy
Our main goals are to reach fans in different parts of the planet, we have a lot of listeners in Africa and we want to increase that because we want to do some shows there, being on the road doing shows is a bit cliché because it’s every band’s goal and we’re not different in this aspect, we want to show our message and I in particular want to share with as many people as possible my worldview, a personal quest to not feel so alone with my daydreams.
Are there are singles/ an album coming up? (Name/releasedate/recordlabel etc)
Yes, we just released the single “You are not alone” which talks about how difficult it is to be alone in times of greatest need and how difficult it is to be able to rely on someone. We released this single not to leave fans without news until the next album which should be ready in the first quarter of 2022 and once again released by DyMM P&M Records who have been assisting us so wonderfully!
Do you have any festivals/gigs/shows planned?
Yes of course! Our tour in 2022 should start in Portugal in the month of July at the festival organized by Label which is our signature, the DyMM metal fest will be our tour opening and then we will tour some European countries like, Spain, France, Italy, Germany and etc.
Allright! Thank you for your time! On behalf of the whole team at Maizter Underground, we want to wish you guys all the best with all you take on in the future!
