Summon: How did the band get started? 

Joffre: I began with an old computer I had, so I started writing instrumental music, then on reverbnation Ivan heard my music and asked me if I wanted to have some vocals on it and I said yes, and I think we achieved great chemistry.


Summon: What kind of music do you play? 

Joffre: Industrial Metal, but I think we have also some Nu Metal or Alternative Metal taste.


Summon: How has the band response been? 

Joffre: The response has been great! but we are also in search for a Label that can put our music in the next level.


Summon: Where did the band name come from?

Joffre: Its a Latin Medical term, it means Hearts Delirium, i heard it for the first time on Fantomas album “Delirium Cordia”.


Summon: Introduce the band members

Ivan:  I am a danish musician/songwriter/lyricist and I do the vocals for Delirium Cordia. I´m the old man of this band:-)

Joffre: I’m from Mexico City, I studied classical percussion on the National Conservatory of Mexico, and do all the music in Delirium Cordia, and Benjamin our guitar player who makes all guitar solos! a true music genius!


Summon: Who writes the music? Lyrics?

Ivan: I write most of the lyrics but Joffre has also written a couple of songs for the 2 albums. All music written by Joffre. 


Summon: And where do the lyric ideas come from?

Ivan: For my part the inspiration comes from watching and observing how other people, own experiences and all the shit that goes on in the world. Now that´s good inspiration!


Summon: How many albums/CD’s have you released?

Joffre: 2, the first one is called “Mother Of All Sorrow” released on 2013, and this last one called “Phantom Pain”, released on 2014.


Summon: Tell me about some the songs on the latest CD?

Ivan: “All New To Me” is about letting go and letting someone else take the lead in your life. It´s quite sad and quite ironic:-) “Medicated” is my view on doctors tendency to subscribe medicine for every little thing and every situation in life. There is a pill for everything.

Summon: Do you have any side projects?

Benjamin: Yeah! I’m currently working on a pilot project with my friend Oliver Sepulveda provisionally named “Deva Purusa” and also prepared some songs for my first solo album.

Ivan: I have 2 side-projects called “Skin Tuxedo” and “Colliding With The Aliens”.


Summon: Who are some of your musical influences?

Benjamin: My musical influences are based mainly in rock and classical music, the mix is pure dynamite!

Joffre: Classical and heavy metal.


Summon: Which current bands?

Benjamin: Rammstein, Lacrimosa, Godsmack, Mike Patton, System of a Down and all that shit.

Ivan: Tool, Meshuggah, Textures, System Of A Down, Deftones…


Summon: What is the scene like over in your country?

Joffre: The scene for metal is very poor actually here on Mexico, I think in Denmark people is more used to Metal, but here there aren’t a lot of good metal bands.


Summon: What made you want to be in this band?  And if you weren’t in this band what would you being doing now?

Benjamin: When they invite me recording, first heard the songs, immediately I felt connected with his musical ideas. They had everything, good riffs, Joffre on drums is a bastard, Ivan is a great singer, but felt that needed some guitar solos truly interesting and enjoyable for the audience. And that was what I did in this album. I would be waiting to see them play live! wait to see them in concert lol!!

Ivan: The music is awesome and the chemistry between Joffre and myself is working very well. If I weren’t in this band I would be in another band. I have to make music:-)


Summon: What does the future hold for the band?

Joffre: We hope to get to a lot of people, so our music can be spread all around the world! and hopefully a third kick ass studio album!

Ivan: More nerve-wrecking music for the people!
