PAGE 10 ROCKNATION ISSUE 23 Hello DIRTY GLORY and welcome to Rocknation. Congrats to your band on having your album titled “Mind The Gap” on Perris Records. How excited are you to see the fan response to the CD? Hey guys, first off thanks a lot for having us! Well, we’re extremely happy to be on Perris Records, specially because we really admire most of the bands they have worked with, and it’s an honor to be next to such names as Helix, LA Guns, Vain, Roxx Gang and etc. We don’t know what to expect, actually. Being a Brazilian band, we’re already absolutely amazed to have some recognition to the point that our album is being sold worldwide. I’m sure we still have a long way to go and the fans will come along! This is a great start! Please name some of the tracks and what they are about. For me personally, the songs ‘Failing The Test’, ‘Damn The Human Race’, and ‘Modern Gods’ are the most meaningful stuff I’ve ever written (You can see the bar wasn’t really high LOL). ‘Failing The Test’ is about our modern society, and the way we walk on this planet focusing on all the wrong things for the wrong reasons. Damn The Human Race questions some cultural behaviors that have been established by all kinds of traditions (ok, mostly religious). Concealing sexual instincts while perverted deep inside is actually ‘Failing The Test’. Modern Gods is about ego. How human values and relations are based on appearances because we just can’t f**king see past death. I could go on and on about this one, but really all I’m saying is if you believe this particular life is all there is to your existence, at least leave something good to the ones you (selfishly) love. I’m sorry, this one sets me off… If you had to tell someone what your band sounded like, what bands would you mention? What I would probably say: “All those hairy dudes from the 80’s, but you know, not really… but yeah… ”I can’t pinpoint what it sounds like but I do know where it comes from, which is Guns N’ Roses, Van Halen, Kiss, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Poison, Skid Row, Danger Danger, Mr. Big. All those heroes.
