Summon: What kind of music do you play?
Nobert: We play a mix of Thrash and Death Metal, influenced by the old school bands who play this kind of Metal.

 

 

Summon: How has the fan response been?
Nobert: There is a lot of people who like our music and it’s rewarding, but we’re trying to get always more. We’re not satisfied yet, there is a long way to run.

 

 

Summon: Where did the band name come from?
Nobert: We were searching for a name that sound aggressive and original. So after thinking about a lot of names, me and Rafael (Chamos, guitarist) had the idea of mixing two words. I’ve suggested ‘butcher’, and Rafael, ‘crow’. So we mixed this words.

 

 

Summon: Introduce the band members and what they do in the band.
Nobert: Norbert Liberator (me) lead vocals; Rafael Chamos: guitars; Osmar Hanz: guitars; Thom Ronald: bass; Sabão: drums.

 

 

Summon: Who writes the music? Lyrics?
Nobert: I use to write the lyrics, all alone or with Rafael. The songs are made by him and Osmar.

 

 

Summon: And where do the lyric ideas come from?
Nobert: Some lyrics talk about reality (politics, history), analogy between reality and fiction, and there others, about occultism.

 

 

Summon: What is your view in Satanism and Occultism?
Nobert: I think it’s cool and valid as art and as a protest against some segments of society. But it has never been an ideological flag for me. That’s just art.

 

 

Summon: How many albums/CD’s have you released?
Nobert: We have a demo released in 2010 and a single in this year. We’re recording songs to do the full-length.

 

 

Summon: Tell me about some the songs on the latest CD?
Nobert: Currently we’ve recorded just one track, called ‘U.S.O. (United States of Oceania)’. The song calls about US government and its influence around the world, making an analogy between this and Orwell’s ‘1984’.

 

 

Summon: Do you have any side projects?
Nobert: No, the only band member who has other project is Sabão, but I don’t know its name, haha.
