Summon: How did the band get started?

Sasko: The band started as a one man project in 2011 and it released one song, but with the old name “Nuclear Blood”.

Summon: What kind of music do you play?

Sasko: The band on the start played old school based thrash metal but now with the new lineup it goes on a more aggressive path (on speed,death thrash route) and the first song is already done.



Summon: How has the fan response been?

Sasko: Well for now we don’t have many fans because we are new. We have about 530 and they are satisfied. An EP came out with 5 tracks from the old stuff and everyone’s reaction was positive and I hope in the future we will have much more.



Summon: Where did the band name come from?

Sasko: Well the idea for the first name was taken from the nuclear bomb and the idea for nuclear blood came as a mix of blood and nuclear waste. But now the name is Slave Pit and it is inspired from slaves thrown with out mercy in a cave to die in great pain.

Sasko: For now we still don’t have an album, we only have 5 songs released but we are working on our debut album now from which there is one song fully recorded that you had the chance to hear first but the album won’t be ready until November or December in 2015.



Summon: Tell me about some the songs on the latest CD?
Sasko: Well the first song was made in 2011, the second one in 2012 and the others in 2014. There was a problem, I was in 4 other bands so Slave Pit was made to be a solo project band but things happened and the bands stooped playing and I stayed with only this one.



Summon: Do you have any side projects?
