Today, at Planet Singer, we have the pleasure of meeting with Nick, the mastermind behind Dagon Von Lovecraft, and discover more about their music and artistic journey with an exclusive interview!


Hi Nick, thanks for being with us today at Planet Singer! You just released your latest single, the captivating and energetic “Epitaph”, a track that marks a new fundamental chapter in your music career. We are thrilled to know more about your artistic journey, so let’s start from the very beginning! When did you discover your passion for music?

Around 7, I was obsessed but had no real instruments. Until that Christmas, I received my first Casio keyboard from my grandfather.

“Epitaph” is such a great track! We can also feel a Black Sabbath/Ozzy vibe to it, but with that unique twist that makes your music stand out. Can you tell us more about this track?

Thanks, Love Ozzy. It’s a song about being used, about feeling like there can truly be no hope. But for some reason waking up every day and trying again for seemingly no reason.

Where do you find your inspiration?

Everywhere. Not just other music. Books, movies, the destruction in life, and rebirth of death.


Punk, Rock, Hard-Rock, Metal, and much more; In your music, we can find a kaleidoscopic mix of influences from some of the best acts in each genre. This makes you sound unique and fresh. Can you reveal what your creative process is? How does your music come to life? 

It’s honestly a different process each time. Try to do it different each time, so it doesn’t get stale.

Where do you find your inspiration? 

The peace in death that I will never find in life. Being a father. Struggling with demons and watching people come and go. It all inspires. Beauty and ugliness of this strange existence.

Will “Epitaph” be part of a bigger picture? Maybe an EP or, even better, a full-length?

It’s from my latest EP which came out in June of this year. “North-end of Nowhere”.

If you could collaborate with one of the artists who inspired you and your music, who would you like to share the stage and a song with?

Mike Patton or Ray Manzarek.


Are you playing any gigs in support of the new single?

Booking for next year, usually take it easier during the holiday season, then back at it in January.

What are your plans for the future?

Continue to learn and get better.

Nick, it was such a pleasure having you with us today. Is there anything you would like to say to our readers and your fans?

Just be you and live in the moment. Thanks for listening and enjoying, stay tuned.
