Talk to me about the story of the band!
Born in 2006, in 2008 we released our first EP “Damage”, in 2010, Elevator Records published
our first full length “Temple Of Deimos” which taken the band in 50 gigs all around Italy till 2012. After 18 months without drummer, during Fabio and Riccardo worked to writing new songs, Fabio Cuomo (Eremite Mope) joined the two to help record the new album “Work To Be Done”. After recording sessions the band was completed with the newcoming drummer Daniele, who allowed Temple of Deimos to gain stability. On 31st 2014 Go Down Records published “Work to be done”, with promotional stand from Taxi Driver, This Is Core and PR Lodge Agency Europe.
What did you do in the last six months?
We had to negotiate with “Greys” to release back Fabio so we can start the tour.
What have you got in your wallet now?
Some picks, few money.
Why have you chosen this name for your band?
We have always been fascinated by the universe and its mysteries, we had read in an scientific magazine that astronomers have never been able to give a clear origin to Deimos: one of the two satellites of Mars. This peculiarity has immediately fascinated us, so in 2006, when we had to choose the name for the band, we thought of Deimos. Also, in ancient Greece no one cared to erect a temple in his honor. We made it, “Temple Of Deimos”.
How important is the look/appearance for your band?
