!!!BRAZILIAN HIGH VOLTAGE DEMONS!!!
We had a conversation with Rhodz (Guitar). Enjoy!
Welcome to the FILTHY DOGS OF METAL Webzine.
1. Tell us a few things about SADISTIC MESSIAH (Members, Starting Year etc).
Rhodz: We started as a project/band in 2018, I recorded some songs in my homestudio , so i invited Danilo (Angelcorpse) to do the vocals, we released a single titled Sadistic Messiah and after positive feedback of the headbangers from Brazil and overseas , the Brazilian label Thrash Or Death Records make a deal with us ,and we signed a contract to release an official album , so in October 2019 "High Voltage Demons" was released in CD here in Brazil and a tape format was released in Chile by the label Misfortune Records. We very proud with the clamour of headbangers and the feedback about the record is amazing , so we have plans to join some friends and play alive ! stay prepared for 2020 !!!!
2. You have recently released your new album ''High Voltage Demons''. What is the Feedback from your audience as well as from the Press?
Rhodz: The feedback is amazing, we had no idea the album would have incredible support from headbangers!
We very proud that!!! Unfortunately our reach and networking is very limited, but we receive some good reviews of the zines and pages from Brazil and outside and the audience embrace the band and with hard work our music was spread everywhere and it's awesome !! Thanx a lot guys !!!
3. Label or DIY and why?
Rhodz: Interesting question!! well , I think depends of the money you have in your budget and what the label can do for the band !
I think nowadays some labels only release the C , give an limited number of copies to the band and the hard work like contacts with zines , magazines and the distribution in general, many times the band that manages . we know that the industry changed
and many labels do the job with passion and many times spend money and time with the bands without any profit return . And we as the band don't have time to work hard to spread the word cause have our jobs and other stuff ,so, the right thing to do are, both , band and label work together to the growing up.
4. Do you prefer Vinyl, Tape, CD or Digital Format and why is that?
Rhodz: Easy question hehehe, I prefer any physical format, Viny , CD or Tape ! I like the digital format too
but only when i walk in the streets with my cell phone , but nothing compares with physical format ! a real heavy metal fan
must have your favorite bands in physical format!
5. Your music style is Thrash Metal. Which are your main influences (Favourite Artists / Bands etc.)
Rhodz: I grow up hearing bands like iron Maiden , Black Sabbath , Judas Priest and while I'm getting older , I discovered Megadeth ,
Metallica , Exodus ,Destruction , Kreator , Sepultura , The Mist , Deathrow , Forbidden, Heathen , Demolition Hammer
and all the classic Thrash Metal bands from USA , Europe and Brazil !
It's hard to say whats my favorites bands/artists!
6. Which things, do you think, a Band should sacrifice in order to succeed?
Have you ever sacrificed anything in your life for a better future of your Band?
Rhodz: Here in Brazil the things are very difficult, it's no easy work all entire day, study all night, and spent time dealing with some band! In Brazil we are Diehard Metalheads !! and I'm have so proud of all headbangers for the passion and dedication your lifes to the Metal!
To be a Metalhead , play in a band , spending lots of money in instruments , rehearsals , shows and stuff like that!
Trust me friend , all that shit are our sacrifice!
In my opinion the fact of the headbangers enjoy my music and my band have a label to release physical material , it's success !
7. Describe your ideal live show as a performance Band. Have you already experienced that?
Rhodz: Is like Paul Ballof says: Murder In The Front Row Crowd Begins To Bang And There's Blood Upon The Stage
Bang You Head Against The Stage And Metal Takes Its Price Bonded By Blood ! I think the Bonded By Blood lyrics describe a ideal show!
8. Which attributes, do you think, that a new Thrash Metal Band should have in order to gain identity and be unique?
Rhodz: Play with passion, no matter what other people says, be honestly with yourself, try to a different sound most of the bands .
9. Do you believe that Bandcamp and other Digital Platforms help the new Heavy Metal Bands? Which, do you think, is the ideal way for a Band to promote its work?
Rhodz: I like Bandcamp , you have the chance to know new bands , support him buying the stuffs ,and sharing with your friends.
Today , the social media like Bandcamp , Facebook , Spotify ,etc, are helping the bands to promote your music and give the chance to reach the headbangers that support physical stuff !!
