Power From Hell Interview


1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?

Sodomic - We're promote the album in different ways, we shottwo music videos and we have some gigs in Mexico and U.S.A between July/ August


2.In June you have a new album coming out, musically how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

Sodomic - Almost everything, lyric themes, riffs, cover art, and of course the way that the band sounds here,  this is an album more poetic and conceptual than others.


3.Some of your lyrics cover Occult themes, can you tell us a little bit bit about your interest in Occultism?

Sodomic - We're always looking for something inside us or outside so to all this things and lack of answers I usually call it "Occultism" and I'm a person addicted on "unknown" so these themes are very important to me.


4.What are some of the other lyrical topics and subjects you have explored over the years with your music?

Sodomic - The power of human flesh, sexuality, lust, moral beliefs, etc...


5.I know that the band was named after an 'Onslaught' album, how does this name fit in with the musical style that you play?

Sodomic - Yeah the name of the band is a reference to the first Onslaught's album, I was a young kid with 18yo when I started the band and that time basically I was hearing this album all the time so the choose of the name was very natural to me, it's a classic album that had an influence in our two first records after that, the only thing in our band that reminds Onslaught is the name because our song is far far away from the song that they did back in the day, are totally different styles, and I think that the name delivery the message, the people heard or reading it and probably in the same time they know what it's about.


6.Can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork that is presented on the new album cover?

Sodomic - The cover artwork was made by Wellington Backer a friend of mine here in Brazil since the last 20 years, the idea behind the art was to show an specie of unrealistic hell a chaos place with a terrible evil presence in the middle like a "evil supreme being" that is what the giant monster in the cover represent to us, the cover is related with all the different forms of evil torment that the humans beings have in real life and our characters have inside the lyrics of album.


7.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

Sodomic - It's hard to say or choose some specific shows, but our fist show in Los Angeles in 2016 was wild as all ours gigs in South America also, on stage we try put all our energy and hate feelings in that moment, the audience identifies with this and they know when it's true.


8.Do you have any touring or show plans once the new album is released?

Sodomic - As I said before we have Mexico and U.S.A between July/August.


9.The new album is coming out on 'High Roller Records', can you tell us a little bit more about this label?

Sodomic - It's a label that doesn't work with a lot of black metal bands so along side with the good proposal that they offered to us I have no doubts that this will be a good experience to both side.


10.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of black, thrash and speed metal?

Sodomic - I would say that the reactions are very good, we have followers in South America , North America , Europe, Asia, we get a lot of support of different headbangers around the world.

11.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part of?

Sodomic - Beside P.F.H me, the bass player and the guitar player we have a Death Metal band and our drummer plays in a lot of different bands of extreme metal here in Brazil.


12.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

Sodomic - We want to keep the released albums and touring this is the main plan for now.

13.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

Sodomic - Bathory always will be for me the most important extreme metal band of all time, if I chose the name of the band inspired on Onslaught of course that the song and lyrics was totally inspired on the Bathory era 84-88, in nowadays we admire a lot bands like Mgla, Ascencion, Cult of fire, etc...


14.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Sodomic - Yeah, if you reader likes to traditional Black Metal with all the elements needed for the genre so our new album is for you I hope that you guys join us and to contemplate the most PROFOUND EVIL PRESENCE!!!
