Summon: What kind of music do you play?

Paul: We’re the real death black metal arts.

 

 

 

Summon: How has the fan response been?

Paul: Really good response here and on another places through the world that we never thought became to sound. We’re always give all of us for them.

 

 

 

Summon: Where did the band name come from?

Paul: From an old garage’s band that I’ve played when I was a teenager, I kept the concept and took it higher as I could.

 

 

 

Summon: Introduce the band members and what they do in the band.

Paul: Actually our line up is:

Paul Callahan – guitars and vocals

Jonathan Reig – bassist

Gonzalo Townsend – drummmer

Javier Rojas – guitars

 

 

 

Summon: Who writes the music? Lyrics?

Paul: I do myself, but all the band mates collaborates through the process of creation and definition the sound of the final product, all the guys works hard and with too much enthusiasm here.

 

 

 

Summon: And where do the lyric ideas come from?

Paul: From everything. We’re not a conceptually band stick on one specific idea, we’´re always trying to take a lot of topics on lyrics.

 

 

 

Summon: What is your view in Satanism and Occultism?

Paul: All of us has his own point of view about satanism, occultism, life, death, a personal interpretative form to see the world. So I can’t answer this question like a band, but i can tell you, we’re truly dark, subtle, elegant, refined, aggressive and obscure on our own ways. Personally I think that all the shit would not be without each other, god – Satan, heaven – hell… to say something.

 

 

 

Summon: How many albums/CD’s have you released?

Paul: Our discography is:

Monolith from Beyond EP 2004

Burning your faith LP 2009

Man has killed god LP 2010

Unblessing souls – Ten years of war Live DVD 2012.

 

 

 

Summon: Tell me about some the songs on the latest CD?

Paul: Is the most heavy work at least, corrupted harmonies shattering the boundaries of creativity, own expectatives, it´s a perfect equilibrium of melancholy and brutality, we’ve put all the impurity of our souls on this upcoming work. It’s a knife crossing your mind. Anyway the last work edited by Australis recs. entitled Man has killed god was talk about the DNA´s shit and how we become like human beings to create life without divine explanations and how the science is actually killing the old and fucking god and religion’s concepts.

 

 

 

Summon: Do you have any side projects?

Paul: Yeah I’m recording some chorus for Archaic Winter now. The last year I was record some solos to Cathar Eclipse. Jonathan and me were band mates on venereal during years before him entering Unblessed. Gonzalo plays on a band here on our country called Azatoth and Javier has another band called Sangre entre las manos.

 

 

 

Summon: Who are some of your musical influences?

Paul: Death and Black metal on 90’s.

 

 

 

Summon: Which current bands?

Paul: Death, Dawn, Carcass, behemoth, Dissection to name a few…

 

 

 

Summon: What is the band like when you play live?

Paul: Good sound, good stages, lights, friendship, fans, girls, drugs, alcohol, and all the shit that brings this style’s life.

 

 

 

Summon: Have you guys ever played in another country?

Paul: Yes, at 2010’s we were touring Brazil and for the new album we have plans to make a south American promotional tour or something better. We hope literally destroy the scene with our upcoming material.

 

 

 

Summon: How big of crowd shows up at shows usually?

Paul: The only way to get big crowds here is opening some big band’s shows, the scene isn’t support local bands as we can hope. And in this industry exist a lot of envy, contacts, friendly bands and promoters, etc… not always the bands opening big shows deserves it, but we don’t care, cause we’re very committed and secure about our work and we don’t need them.

 

 

 

Summon: How is the crowd response when you play?

Paul: Good, through years we generate hi-fi’s fans, jeje… And they’re always supporting the band on each one of cities we’ve played.

 

 

 

Summon: What do you think of the US Black Metal/Death Metal scene?

Paul: I love the old Tampa, Florida’s scene and I have to much respect for Absu.

 

 

 

Summon: What do you think of the Overseas scenes?

Paul: I think that the music industry is decaying, and we’re on the worst moment of metal’s scene through worldwide, but, fuck´em all… My music isn’t for money or fame, it’s something about self satisfaction and we support all the music that comes through the soul of musician. I feel special sympathy for the Norwegian and Swedish scene.

 

 

 

Summon: What are some of new favorite black metal/death metal bands?

Paul: Lamb of god and Animals as leaders are a good surprise for me.

 

 

 

Summon: When do you guys plan on writing any new material?

Paul: We’re recording now our homonimous album, the fourth on studio… We hope this work will be out at the end of this year, a tentative date can be 21/12, maybe… jaja

 

 

 

Summon: What does the future hold for the band??

Paul: We need major diffusion and touring, I always think that this must be with a lot of work behind you and we’re having that. Step by step being consequent with we went, and we’ll going. Thanx for supporting and the interest for the band.
