1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
Lembrando os Mortos begins form the idea of playing black metal, I'm the only member of the band. I've been playing for over 15 years so far, and I always wanted to bring something to the actual black metal scene.
So I started writing material for what is the first demo of the band " ritual de despedida"
2.How would you describe the musical sound that is present on the demo?
Music is strictly black metal, in all its glory, there are no subgenres, Lembrando os Mortos is black metal is in all its complexity, fast parts, mid tempos, raw melancholic melody, hatred and emotions as it should be.
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
The lyrics are about the man, as feel the life and his relationship with the death, about our ancestors who left and as the land is responsible for bury us all. The individuality, issues such as nature and how humanity destroys everything around.
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name Lembrando os Mortos?
The name means remembering the dead, is a song of the Portuguese black metal band Inverno Eterno, of which I am a big fan.
5.According to everything I have read so far, the band members come from both Brazil and Urugay, how do you set up the reocrding process?

There is only one direction to go: Black fucking Metal.
There is so much hatred, negativity and emotions to explore in the world of underground black metal.
