IF THERE IS A BAND TO WHICH THE TERM OLD-SCHOOL FITS PERFECTLY TO DESCRIBE THEIR MUSIC AND SPIRIT, THAT BAND IS...POWER FROM HELL. DUE TO THE REISSUE OF THE DEBUT ALBUM "THE TRUE METAL" WE SENT SOME QUESTIONS TO MASTERMIND SODOMIC, SO READ ON WHAT HE HAD TO TELL US...
Greetings Sodomic, how is everything going in Sao Paulo?
Sodomic - Regards, here it's alright, São Paulo remains the same infernal city ever.
Your debut album “The True metal” is being reissued ten years after its original release, what can you tell about this special release and the new song recorded exclusively for this release?
In fact the album has been reissued before, but in CD format in LP format is the first time you will be re-released, this album took unimaginable proportions around the world and I am really happy to know how much it is important for some people the released is being done in partnership with 2 labels, one U.S. and one from Norway.
What are your memories concerning the creation, rehearsal and recording of the songs?
I started writing the songs for the album "The true metal" at the end of 2002, there were only 2 rehearsal sessions and then in February 2003 he was recorded in January 2004, the album was released on vinyl for the first time Here in Brazil
Did you play “Old-School” metal right from the start? Did you play any covers before you tried to write own songs?
Yes We played covers of various bands of the 80s, only after that I started writing.
Whose idea was it to call the band Power From Hell at all, and why?
The name is inspired by the first album of ONSLAUGHT, and how I love this album, I decided to put the same name in the band.
Besides the rock/ metal attitude lyrics there are titles like “Days Of Lust”, “More Whores”, “Bondage Desires”...I think that the message is clear enough but, I will give you the chance to expand on this subject…
Almost all letters of PFH are of some sexist theme, some are own experiences and others are fictitious.
On the song “The Old masters” from the album Lust and violence you name CELTIC FROST and BATHORY, are they the main influence of the sound and attitude of Power From Hell?
BATHORY is the most influential for the PFH, CELTIC FROST was amazing, but the major musical influences is BATHORY.
Would say that there was an evolution since the release of “The true metal” to your last album Lust and Violence?
I would not say it was an evolution of the PFH albums are very similar, the only difference is that some are dirtier than others.
Do you have a favorite Power From hell song? If so please tell why?
Not, impossible to choose just one.
Are there any “new” bands that you respect for their attitude and/or music?
I like many new bands, especially bands here from Brazil, to name just a band im in, I listen to the band "OLD".
Fenriz from Darkthrone has stated in some interviews that he likes Power From Hell, and you even posted on your facebook page a pic of him wearing a PFH t-shirt, What do you think? Did you ever meet him or chatted with him?
My contact with Fenriz is only by e-mail, was a great surprize when he wrote to me asking me for the first few albums of PFH because he liked, he is an important guy in the history of extreme metal, an honor for I know that my music is appreciated by him.
How would you describe a Power from hell concert? Who are the musicians that join forces with you to play live?
The band is just me, when I record the albums the drummer of the Anarkhon that play with me over 15 years to record the albums, so basically the band is just me and him.
How many concerts have you attended as a fan? Which bands or shows have had an effect on you?
I've been to many shows, but to name one that was unforgettable I'd say Black Sabbath with original lineup.
How is the scene in Scene in Brazil? Would you say it is strong and united?
I would not say united , but here we have albums of the best bands in the world , is a place filled with great musicians and inspired people to make good music.
In an interview with Wagner Antichrist that I read (I think it was in 2012), he was asked aboutwhat would it take for him to participate in a SARCÓFAGO reunion gig and then he replied that he would accept to play again as long as the rest of the I.N.R.I. lineup (Gerald, Butcher and DD Crazy) also would. So I have to ask you...how much Reais should I send you for kidnapping the four guys and kept them locked in a room until they agree to play together? Would you like that to happen? Maybe they end up recording a new album!
These guys recorded one of the most important albums in the history of extreme metal , they have due respect everywhere in the world , but I do not know if a new SARCÓFAGO album would work .
Please name your top 5 of Brazilian Metal releases?
Only Death Is Real [Apokalyptic Raids], INRI [Sarcófago], Anarkophobia [Ratos De Porao], Arise [Sepultura], Bestial Devastation [Sepultura].
What is the strangest place and the most shocking one that you have been?
What is Power From Hell currently working on? Do you have songs ready for the next release?
Currently I'm starting to think about the next album, already has a new song on youtube "Molesting the holy virgin".
Ok, thanks for your time, is there anything you would like to add?
I thank you for your support and your interest in the work of PFH.
