Last recording?: Last Recording was “Capital Phase of Karma” launched in 2021 by Helvete Records in Mexico. The reviews have been very positive. I think that we have been growing in boom with a loyal audience that is looking for other types of sounds and ALTARS OF REBELLION surely gives them that.

Any former symphonic metal bands in Colombia?: I think there are several, although it is more like gothic environments. If I'm honest, symphonic metal is not very popular in Colombia, however our positioning strategy has been sounding from the outside, that is, in international circles.

Why was “Capital Phase of Karma” licensed by a Mexican label?: It did seem very successful that our album be released internationally, Helvete Recs is a renowned label in Mexico and it was the best decision to release our album through them.

Do Colombians support national bands by going to shows, buying merch, etc.?: In Colombia you hear a lot of metal although it is a scene that is in full transition. You buy a lot of cassettes, vinyls and cds. The physical material is much appreciated although there are on stream platforms. The physical material will always have more relevance. On the other hand, regarding shows, the audience is more aware and pays the door fee, which is very good, and also it represents a fair payment for the musicians.

Message behind “Capital Phase of Karma” title and intentions?: Well, our album is conceptual and F.K wrote about of seven sins this time. It is always said that what is forbidden is what you most desire. The capital sins offer a broad topic to debate regardless the validity or the idea of sin in our societies. There are seven passions deeply rooted in the human psyche. Can we imagine the human being without them? I think not. Would the world be better if these inclinations do not condition our attitudes? It is essential to know how to recognize and feel that the capital sins are there, not in vain. Each one has its representation in demons forms. Investigations and documentaries that have been made on this subject are various. I even think that this art becomes much easier to talk about in music and to represent it. From the first western tradition’s works until the most recent ones, the deadly sins have been portrayed in multiple genres and through different perspectives. I guess we are not the only band that has addresses this issue or the last one.
