Devasted- Cesar Molina 01

Summon: How did the band get started?

Cesar: Me and Diego Jimenez were discussing about music in College, and I asked him to start a band, and he said ‘Why not?’ We started it at 2008 in Palmira, but now we are placed in Bogotá Colombia. I remember that we didn’t have a drum set, so he played in something like an electronic drum, but without sound/patches.

 

 

Summon: What kind of music do you play?

Cesar: Thrash metal, I hope some day Technical Thrash Metal.

 

 

Summon: How has the fan response been?

Cesar: Pretty insane, in our first gig the crowd was to loud even knowing that we just were starting our career, I remember that in one of our gigs a guy came near to me and showed me his blood, He was pretty proud about that, the mosh-pit was insane, that’s nuts as hell!

Cesar:  

Infierno

For us, society is the hell you know, and this song refers to society in that way, we are being consumed, we betray ourselves to be part of it.

Holocausto Nuclear

Could be translated like ‘Nuclear holocaust’ is a song about a man who struggle to live after a nuclear infestation, the problem is that… he created his own executioner you know. Like I said, we are against of all the things that makes mankind injury.

Also is Obituary, Terrorizer and Cannibal Corpse, by the way Cannibal Corpse is going to play on Rock al parque, that is a big free festival in Bogotá Colombia. Another band is Nunslaughter, I am a huge fan of them, they were playing in Colombia a few weeks ago, that music came from the devil you know.
