First of all, tell us a little about the band, from the beginning to the band's present day. "...The band was formed in Artemisa in December 2002, although the project was born before, with another name (KARMA). The first demo was "Pain Is Weakness" in this EP, the song "Immortal Murdered" placed us in the public's preference, and we started attending all festivals and concerts across the island. Our performance on Cuerda Viva TV show was also crucial. After that show all change, we were awarded as a novel band. Since then, we have been conquering all the awards that metal can aspire to in Cuba. In Cuba, the band was active for ten years. We were in almost all the national and international festivals, such as Caiman Rock and Brutal Fest. We especially remember playing just before Los Aldeanos in the last Rotilla (the original) festival in front of many people, one of the biggest shows I saw in Cuba. We were founders of the Cuban Rock Agency, the only band outside the Capital because we influenced the national scene. In short, after a decade of hard work and improvement, we managed to bring together a very professional work team and a lot of enjoyment and success. In 2013 moved to Tampa, Florida. In 2014 we released the EP "Purified", then in 2016 "Calavera", and recently the singles "Iron Cage" and "Strength Beyond Concrete". We are currently working on a new single that will be available soon. In The United States, we have been very active, giving lots of shows and recording music and videos, all available on our Youtube channel..."

 

CHLOVER always worked very hard from his native province of Artemisa. You guys spent a lot of time in promotion and working hard. "... From the beginning, Alain Echeverria (gtr) and I (drummer) have been very devoted to rock music, metal, and culture. We dedicated ourselves to living that dream and then bringing it to the band, so we went to tons of shows, festivals. We even went several times from Artemisa to Havana, just to see the AGONIZER's rehearsal. So, when we managed to form our band, we already had a very well-formed idea of ​​what we wanted to do. We wanted the world to listen to us, we tried to make good music and be the best band on the planet, and with this mentality, we always worked and always tried to do it ourselves. Many people do not know that we rejected EGREM not once, but twice, for being arrogant and mediocre, by rubbing in our faces that "They didn't need us" and that we had to sign the contract that they threw at our feet..."

 

Tell us how part of the band gets to the USA? From what I see, the vocalist, you, and the third guitarist are still part of it. How is it going with the other ex-members' lives? "...All the band members immigrated to the United States after 2012 for different reasons and routes. Due to emigration and personal decisions, not all the members continued in the music. The singer Michel and I moved to an apartment, and there we welcomed JL Camerota. There, we began to rebuild the band. We performed on October 11, 2014, for the first time in the US at the Brass Mug club. It was a unique experience. The other members live their lives in different States. We are all in communication, and the relations are excellent..."

 

Making metal in the USA would be more or less like going to dance at the top's house. How have you inserted the band into the scene? "  READ MORE...
