Shamania JAMDEMO

We've added a new track to our myspace for you all that is an improvised piece, recorded after Shamania last August. We jam often over a repeated electronic loop. Rainy Day was originally a 45 minute Jam!! We like this tune and hope you do to.


Our finale!

Well what a year! It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times, on top of the usual personal baggage we all have to deal with in life, band stuff has added to the messy mix that is living... Finally finishing our album & organizing the launch, getting those first reviews, *that* Nelson gig, Emilie Autumn, Shamania, Whitby, long drives in minibusses, Starting on new material, the fights and the funtimes gigs, gigs and more gigs... Not sure how come i'm still in one piece!

On that note... Goodbye to '07 & all that!

Come celebrate the end of the year with us at Black Planet's Xmas Special!

It's @
The Angel
30 the Broadway
MK40 3TH

22 Dec 2007
£7 on door

Our final gig of 07... expect some surprises! (i'm in an oxymoronic mood...)

There will be new material though, been saving one or two new pieces for the occasion. One piece in particular will be a one off...

On 22nd of December 2007 Black Planet will not only be a Gothic Realm but a Realm where your favourite fairytales and legends come together to make History. Captain Zephirella and her crew are taking you on board The Precious Darkstar for a night of magic and fantasy.

Come as your favourite fairytale and legends character and celebrate with the beautiful ethereal sound of Dyonisis who won "Battle of The Bands" at the 2007 October edition of Whitby Gothic Festival and will make it on the main stage for the 2008 April WGW! Be also taken by The Tallyman's Dark Omnibus' story telling and singing in a true "Dark Cyber Cabaret" style.

Then dance the night away till 3AM with our resident DJ's.

+ Every attendee will receive a voucher to gain entry for £4 at the January's gig with Voices of Masada supported by October Country

+ Buy a raffle ticket for £1 and win CD's, T-shirts and more... All proceeds will go towards a fund to help find treatment for Lucy*Fur and to help her realise her dreams. She's been the one behind so much of the Whitby Gothic Weekend that people take for granted so this is our chance to put something back, please read her blog for more info.

Pirates, Fairies, Elves, Dragons, Knights, Trolls…. All Welcome!

And now for something a bit different...!

Reeeally looking forward to this gig, should be a bit special.

EVERYONE in sheff should see Sieben play before they die.


Dyonisis are previewing 2 new tunes (one of which has never been performed live, might all go horribly wrong..!) and the line up includes special guest performers..... For ONE night only, ONE track only, Dyonisis will have a drummer! *shock* *gasp*!

Should be a good un ;)

The winner gets to play Whitby proper next year but aside from the BoB aspect 3 bands playing their socks off should make for a good eve methinks :)

Have a great weekend

20 Oct 2007

Dyonisis are currently locked away writing and recording new material, but in the meantime we've uploaded a vastly shorter radio edit of album track Rainy Day for free download. Its nearly 5 minutes shorter than the album version, but we thought you'd all like the chance to have a listen anyway.

Keep your eyes open and with any luck we'll be putting up some demo versions of new songs in the very near future.
Hope everyones well,

Take care,

5 Sept 2007

Sorry again for the mix up - hope to see some of you on Sunday :)

Yup, in case you hadn't noticed - it's spring! The season of all things shiny and new!

I've finally learnt the basics of a graphics package, so we have a banner that doesn't have that tacky "pimp my profile" or whatever it says on it :)


Copy 'n' Paste the following code into your site to display the above banner:

<a href="http://www.myspace.com/dyonisis"><img src="http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j309/Nelliphant/banner2.jpg" border="0"></a>

Am i smug? Oh yes i am! Never mind the fact that it's taken me 24 yrs to learn to do this simple task...!

If anyone fancies helping us out and sticking this up somewhere on their profile we'd be all kinds of gratefull :)
