CODC info

I was just reading the CODC reviews on, and one of them was talking about the band name. It said the name doesn't refer to gore like you would expect, but actually has a meaning behind it. I'm curious, does anyone know what it means? If anyone could explain it, or direct me to an interview or article discussing it, I would appreciate it.

I never thought it was a gore thing, more a tragic disaster type thing. I think of the 3rd world for some reason, maybe Im looking too deeply tho...

"The moniker, Circle of Dead Children, is not meant to reflect absolute gore, sickness, adolescent dismemberment or anything like that, although it often gets categorized in such a manner. While we fully relish and support the repugnant gore-grind scene and all of it's abhorrent world, it would have been ridiculous for us to parade as such a band. With a world of nauseating influence constantly revolving around us, the lyrical output is tangled within the social, political and interpersonal boundaries…all the while retaining an unsettling psychological perspective on everything. The vision that we had when developing the name was that of an enormous circle of flags, gathered from numerous nations, laid down into the dirt. Upon each flag lay the wasted remains of one of its children of the country. It was from that dismal impression that the name, Circle of Dead Children, was chosen.........."

Wow, that's a pretty cool reason for having the name as such. That's very intellectual.

Even though they're trying to not make their name sound too death-gore-grindy, their logo sure isn't helping. haha
