MIREXXX

...after six electro-projects with different people, I realised that the working process with Posse was the most effective. And so Mirexxx was born.


29/08/2012, Jurgen VANVLASSELAER


The 20th of October the Belgian outfit MIrexxx will enter the stage in Ghent, Belgium with good folks such as Faderhead, Noisuf-X, Eisenfunk and FGFC820. Mirexxx stands for dark electronic beats with an EBM feel, think old school X-Marks The Pedwalk meets Suicide Commando. Time for a chat!

 

Hi guys, can you give us a little introduction to Mirexxx?

Stijn S: It's a dark-electro/EBM project. Mirexxx was founded in Mechelen. Our first live-concert was at the Maanrockrally open-air 2008 in Mechelen. At this point I live in Brussels and Posse in Mechelen.

 

Where does the name come from?

Stijn S: I first saw it in a magazine. It's a toxic substance, a poison.

 

Were you in other projects before?

Stijn S: I started as a bass player in a punk group in Mechelen. After that I was also bass player in a punk group in Brussels for a short time. Then I started my own project Defy (punk) where I did the vocals. On drums was Joost Van Kerckhoven from Funeral Dress. After a while we stopped. Because I was allready going out in the Electro-gothic scene, I started to experiment with synthesizers with Posse. I was in several electronic projects.
In the project with Nick we called ourselfs Vio-gen. So after six electro-projects with different people, I realised that the working process with Posse was the most effective. And so Mirexxx was born.

 

Are either of you in other projects?

Stijn S: No.

 

I hear a lot of old X-Marks The Pedwalk meets Suicide Commando in your tracks. What are the main influences of Mirexxx?

Stijn S: Cat Rapes Dog, Nitzer Ebb, Front 242, Hocico,... Punk also had an influence on us. XMTP I don't know so well, but I surely listen to Suicide Commando. Im curious about their new album. I listen to old electronics and new electronics, but also other stuff.

 
What are your lyrics about?

Stijn S: Abuse, death, sin, violence, hate, lack of individualism, lost humanity ,sexual offence, fetishism,chaos.

 
You released already 2 CDR's. How can we purchase them?

Stijn S: Yes, 2 demo CD's: Erratica (2008), Nine Angles (2011). You can buy them in the recordstore Electrocution (Rue Des Pierres 37 , Brussels). We still need to make contact with Wool-E shop which could make it easier to purchase them.

Posse: You can also buy them at our concerts.

 
You recently appeared on the Till Dawn Do Us part/BE compilation with the very cool track Existence. Is this your first track on an official release?

Stijn S: Yes ,it is. The first song we made was Black Rain.

 
Is there an official release in the pipeline? Or are you still looking for label?

Stijn S: There will surely come one. Maybe next year...you will see.Till now we didn't search for a label. There is a possibility that we are gonna make work of it in 2013.
 

On the 20th of October you will be opening a festival in Ghent. What may we expect?

Stijn S: Aggression as always.

 

Are there more gigs booked?

Stijn S. Not at this moment, but I know there is still one comming.


What's on the Mirexxx agenda the following months?

Stijn S: Parties and rehearsals.
 

Final word?

Art is resistance.

 

Thank you for the answers and see you the 20th of October in Ghent!

I regularly come across animal remains at various stages of decomposition. That started to affect me, and that's where the concept of the record was born.
