The history of rock music is inextricably linked to socio-political and geopolitical developments.
Like other bards, musicians pass on to the next generations all those events that shape the future.
Somehow, Dionysos, with the song “Βρωμάει Μπατσίλα“, wanted to convey everything we experience.
“Violence, policing, finking, racism, but also human-to-human indifference.
On the way to 2021, we thought that all this would have been eliminated, we would have read all this in some dusty history books.
Unfortunately, ” extreme patriotism ‘still breeds hatred in a country where almost all of us are refugees.”
Dimitris, the voice, and soul of Dionysos, describes the birth of the song, but also everything that happens in Greece, and not only!
The song could also be considered prophetic, as it was written just a few months before the rulers imposed absolute policing.
On the occasion of COVID, the complete elimination of individual freedoms, some shed their blood in the streets to prevent this from happening.
Now the blood is shed by the state impunity showing us that history repeats itself again …
Under the pretext of an illness, individual freedoms have gone for a walk!
“Lack of education is the main reason we forget the concepts of solidarity, mutual respect … humanity!
Everything that is happening worldwide, with the violence taking the lead role, inspired us for this song“.
The state “control” from one end of the earth to the other is such that the names of the victims are now an endless list.
“Ever since we were children, we have been interested in everything that happens around us.
Rock, as you know, has been involved in socio-politics from the beginning, which is why we chose to serve this genre.
A genre that always deals with all the wrongs of this world (or so it should be) “.
Analyzing the way, they write, Dimitris tells us how an artist thinks …
“The truth is that we do not know exactly how a song is written.
We have never sat down to write, just words and melodies come like a torrent, from within us and without being planned.
When one of our songs is completed, we leave it aside and when we feel that it is 100% ready then we only publish it.
Maybe that’s why we don’t release new material very often. Only when we really have something to say! ”
The Muse does not appear every day. It only comes when the time is right.
Dimitris, being extremely active at all socio-political levels, points out something that is not self-evident for other artists.
It is not always about fame and recognition; it is about the essence of this music.
Rock music, too, does not aim at apotheosis, but at the constant search for truth.
“Although we went through many difficulties, we never thought of giving up!
After all, how can you give up what you consider your only “weapon” against everyone and especially against injustice!
How can you give up the only thing that makes you want to continue?
You NEVER give up!
The only thing left for us is solidarity, humanity, understanding, respect for our fellow human beings.
We must raise our heads, resist, fight!
Our enemy is not our fellow human beings, especially those whom some want to call as: persecuted and/or marginalized!
Our enemy is the outdated perceptions that people want to be subjugated and frightened masses!
We must not allow anyone to be wronged and to be wronged by the rulers! “
