Danilo Moniez

Corpse Mutilation

My name is Danilo Moniez, born on the 6th of November 1991 in Ypres, Belgium.
By the time I was born, my father was already an active musician and music teacher. A passion for music which later on even grew into a family music business called 'T NOTENBALKJE. Needless to say I have always been very close to a big variety of different instruments & all sorts of music genres!
Also driven by this same love for music, my older brother & sister were already learning how to play several instruments!
I myself was quite the active child and always found something to hit, stomp or bash on. As long as I could create rhythms and make noise, it was all good to me! At some point however, I was really driving people crazy!
So like my siblings, I signed up for the local music school as soon as I grew old enough. My goal? Playing drums!
As time went by and I grew older, I started listening to my brothers' CD's: Metallica, Slayer, Slipknot, System of a Down... You know, the bands that made all of us get into metal.
It became clear to me, I wanted to be like those guys: play in a band and tour the world! So I started drumming in a few cover bands, made my own projects with friends etc. but it was never really what I was looking for. Time went on, I graduated music school, finished my studies & started looking for a job.
And eventhough it looked like my life was going in a different direction, I never gave up on that dream of playing in a band.
I kept on trying but it seemed like I just wasn't able to find musicians who were as serious about it as I was.
So in and out of bands and little projects we reached 2013.
All of a sudden a friend of mine, playing in a local Death Metal-band 'Corpse Mutilation', told me they were looking for a new drummer. At first I had my doubts because I had never really played such an extreme genre before so I was afraid to disappoint them. But after a few convincing phonecalls & rehearsals we decided to give it a go.
Now, 4 years later, I am still playing in Corpse Mutilation, going to amazing places, playing awesome shows, touring all over the UK & Europe and we keep on pushing for more! Recently we started recording our second full album, which we plan on releasing this coming fall, followed by a mind-blowing promo tour!
So be sure to follow us on social media and keep an eye out for our next shows!
