Descent Into Madness is a power/progressive metal band from Houston, Texas, USA.
Why this name?
Due to our fervent interest and love of H.P.Lovecraft's literary works, we decided to use Descent Into Madness (DIM) as our band name.
Do you play live?
We play pretty much around the Houston area. Some Texas tours are in the works.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The web gives access to the "small guy" on a large scale in a way that is adding opportunity for us to promote and advertise the band nationally in a way that only the record labels could.
The web has also added lots of junk material and any moron with a computer and a sequencer software can be on the web, so in a way it is a double edged sword.
On the overall we feel that the web is very beneficial for the band - we have won fans from all over Europe, South America and Canada, fans that wouldn't have known about us if the internet didn't exist.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes, we would like to sign with a major label because of the access to their channels and expertise, also the access to top name producers that we can work with. We would also be interested in working for film, especially anything Lovecraft-related.
Band History:
The first inception of the band starts in 2001. After going through several lineup changes the band became what it is now: Alexander Kamburov (guitar and vocals), Claudio Lassala on guitars, Jennifer Lazure on vocals.

At the moment we are auditioning bassists and drummers.
Your influences?
Kreator, Coroner, Sirenia, Nevermore, Anthrax, Destruction, (old) Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Queensryche, The Cult and many many others.
Favorite spot?
Vienna, Austria
Equipment used:
Squier guitars through Pignose amps.
