Our music is inspired by many different genres and styles. We classify our music as Ambient Metal but it also contains many other genres. How this started is two brothers who had gone through rough childhoods and grew up quickly decided to try and get the message to others that they are not alone.
The band name "Detniateht" was created by member Spike in 2007. Up until fall of 2011, nothing was really moving forward. It wasn't until lead vocalist, Sweeney Dunston, acquired the means to create the music and began brain storming and experimenting with ideas. Spike is currently living in TN where he works hard to support the monster he had created in 07. Sweeney who lives in Anchorage Alaska is working hard to get the members needed to start performing live shows and working on music and ideas for the future shows.
Band name pronunciation, Detniateht :Det-ni-a-teht: = [Debt-Nye-Uh-Tet] Detniateht's quote, "Rock it out" = Let the music and lyrics flow into you and thru you; allowing it to remove the anger and hatred from deep inside you. Let it calm you from within and bring you peace and hope.
Our primary message to everyone is that when you are in a dramatic situation or under a lot of stress or possibly wanting to end your life, if you think you have it worse then anyone else, just keep in mind, there is always someone else out there in a worse position than you.
We have hit rock bottom more than once and every time we do, we see someone else out there having it worse than us. And then we see another person that had it worse than the one before. Don't take what you have for granted. Every breath you take is a gift and should be cherished.
