Questions about your views:

What do you think about downloading more music than buying CDs nowadays? LS: Nowadays the most popular thing to hear or discover new bands, new music, is on internet. We know that, and that’s why almost all of our albums are only Digital, because the people now prefer download the album and have it on a smart device, than have a cd and put on other device to hear. 

How to think and do you think the music industry has changed since they started downloading music? LS: Something very important since that, it’s that now, you can only writing on a search the name of your  Artist/Band etc. and put “Download” you can download all the discography or less, the most of the albums of them. The new way to give to know your music is on Internet, because there’s no borders to separate each country, or people. 

If you prefer downloaded music, cassette, CD or Vinyl? LS: We prefer so much the Vinyl, because the quality is better than a MP3, or another encode file. 

What would you do if the music is not the fans? LS: Well the fans, are something like a reward, because we do the music for music. We know that can be something weird when you say that, but the music should be (on our opinion) for ourselves, and if the people like it, it’s a reward. 

What about the guards' job at your gigs and stuff? LS: Fourtanely, the guards are not so much necessary. Our shows are more familiar, almost nothing are incidents or less violence... ¡except for the mosh! 

Those attending light and sound how much they have helped you really if you think about? LS: We give thanks to all the engineers on light and sounds, because they do, for us a good job, and can give us give the people a better show. 

What do you think of my work? LS: Excellent, because that’s what most people need to know and do, give support to the new music. 

How believe and know that this interview will help you in Brazilian music? LS: We hope that Brazil like our music, and with this interview meet us and our music better. We would like to much play on Brazil Soon! 

What are your role models or idols? LS: Well our Idols (Musically talking) are very so much the Japanese’s, Mexicans, Brazilians and Arabic people for their regional music. 

Why do you think they are? LS: Because there’s not yet a good culture over the world (Again Musically talking), almost all people not are open mind and that’s why they can’t really enjoy so much things on their life’s. 

Is it easier to draw inspiration from older bands than bands that are active today? LS: No, in our opinion the older bands and music have really great things, for example some weird measures, or unique techniques, also the new music, nowadays the music is so much fast, progressive and virtual than before. 

What has been conditioned biggest obstacles in the music industry? LS: Well we think that the support on big ways, to really overcome the mind borders and country borders. 

What advice would you give to other bands and artists? LS: That stay practice that improve your music skills. Never give up, the only voice and opinion that need to hear, is from you heart and mind. 

How tags you up before a concert? LS: We try to meet the artist, and eat or drink something and stay the most better possible physically and minded.
