Inferno Doll Interview 20/05/21
MM: Can you tell us about your Band and whos your biggest influences
Hello. My name is Laura, I’m a Chilean singer and songwriter living in Canada and The Inferno Doll is my solo project. So, I’m a solo artist. I make Gothic Styled music with hints of Balck metal and industrial.
MM: Where do you draw your inspirations and ideas from
Dark romance, gothic literature, personal experiences, horror. I take inspiration from all that. Specially from “Dracula” as I’m an admirer of Bram Stoker and Dacre Stoker and I’ve read their novels so many times!
MM: What would you say is your Band’s favourite song?
This is really hard to answer. But if I only have to choose one song only today that’ll be “All or Nothing” from Moonspell. Their new album is a masterpiece, IMO.
MM: Plans tour and festival wise for 2021
Not really. Not until covid leaves us and we can tour again.
But I am planning on doing live streams soon.
MM: What can we expect from you guys live
A theatrical and emotional show and lots of energy.
MM: What do you like best and worst about touring
Worse is being away from my cats. The best is meeting my fans face to face and get the chance to hang out with them.
MM: Which three Bands would be your ultimate touring buddies
I’d love to tour with Lindsay Schoolcraft, Moonspell and Gaerea.
MM: What's the most memorable concert you've been to (other than your own) and why
Aerosmith, because it was my very first concert and I was only 14 years old girl.
MM: What do you feel has been your biggest accomplishment so far with
Writing an album online! (Sacrifice). And I’m so proud of the result.
MM: Which are your Two favourite Albums of all time
This changes all the time, It depends on the mood and seasons of life. Today, right now, my favourite albums are “Hermitage” from Moonspell and “Limbo” from Gaerea.
MM: Can you remember the first time you ever played live and how it felt to have people watching you?
I do! It was quite traumatic LOL!
I was very shy and on my first live performance, I stared at the bass amplifier the whole show. The venue was very small too so the audience was quite close to us. I have no idea what people felt while watching me then.
After a few shows, I was able to control that stage fright I had and started to enjoy the shows. I still get nervous before hitting the stage, but I love every second of being on it.
MM: Growing up which Bands posters did you have on your bedroom wall.
I had so many posters on my wall! From Pearl Jam, Aerosmith, Sepultura, Metallica… those are the ones I can remember.
MM: Who do you think influenced the world of Metal / Rock more than any other person
All of us Metalheads.
MM : What's the most important thing to the band right now?
right now is to finish writing the next album. Thing we are currently doing with my co-songwriter partner.
MM: If you could do a cover of any song which one would it be and why?
Hmmmm… I would sing Moonspell or Gaerea or Avatar or Spiritbox.
MM: Tell us why we should buy and listen to your Band
I tell stories with my music, which is something most people don’t. With my music, you get to hear my take on gothic and vampire culture. I also relate my own experiences into this frame of reference.
MM: Four words to describe your Band
Wicked, Introspective, Dracula, Metal.
MM: Final Words for your fans and our readers
Thanks for this interview MM.
And to all MM readers, I invite you to go check my music. I release an EP in December 2020 called “Sacrifice” which’s the most personal release I’ve done so far.
