You released your first demo-CD
Eyes Of Fire. How is it to have your own music captured on a disc?
The demo-CD Eyes Of Fire was elaborated with much effort and a
lot of dedication from us. We worked hard for this release and therefore waited for this
great opportunity. With this courage we did enter into the studio. We have been receiving
some criticisms and a good acceptance from the public, and this is really beyond our
expectations, thanks to God. However, we could not have a musical production as we would
like, due to some factors, financially too. For this reason, we are expecting that our
next release, the full album that are we are already working on for some time, has a good
production, that it shows the potential and the tendencies of our instruments as well as a
vocal delivery that's more aggressive, heavier guitars, the bass well defined and the
drums well distinct. And, at last, a production of first quality. We are working on a
distribution outline, or some contracts with recording studios with international
recognition. At the moment, we are popularizing our demo-CD Eyes of Fire and we are
trusting in God that we can accomplish our dream by releasing the full album soon.
So, you're not fully satisfied with the EP. When do
you hope to release a full-length?
We are working on the songs for the full album, and we still don't have a date fixed for
the release. We hope it will not be delayed.
I'm not familiar with the situation in Brazil, the
provisions for bands like studios. You already said you're looking for a good studio. How
is it to record a CD in Brazil?
There are good studios in Brazil, particularly here in Brasília, the
capital city of our country. The most important thing is a good production, that transmits
with fidelity the heavy sound, with a good quality, that meets our expectations. Obviously
it would be good if we get the record out of Brazil, where there is a great demand for
metal. And we don't want to discard this possibility.
What surprises me about Eyes Of Fire is that all
lyrics are in English. Your native-tongue is Portuguese. Why did you choose to do only
English or is there a Portuguese version too?
We love our motherland, as we love our language too. The option for
English comes from the fact that we love to reach the world market. We don't discard the
possibility to have music in Portuguese.
How is the feedback of the Brazilian public to the
The public's acceptance has been very good. This surpasses even our
expectations. There are some that criticize, but we have very concrete objectives, and the
reality of the metal is in the exterior. There are examples for instant, like Sepultura,
that reached world recognition.
Like I said I'm not familiar with the scene over in
Brazil. I know there are lots of bands like in the São Paulo area and elsewhere too. Are
you in touch with other bands and how about opportunities to play live? Try to describe
the scene and the possibilities for a metal-band.
There is a will on the part of many bangers of uniting the metalbands.
There is a will but there are many barriers, as the obvious desire to get higher up,
selfishness, and the fear of sharing space with others. It would be a hypocrisy from
our part to say that there is a union, or an alliance. But there's a development of metal
bands, and there are increases in zines series too. Magazines and leaderships that have
the same desire for this union are also appearing even through the use of internet. We are
sure to improve the degree of relationship among the bands and to contribute for the
growth of the metal through this medium. We already participated in several events that
also had the objective of uniting the bands and, in a certain way, we believe that we are
