Where can people buy your merchandise? Onlie at  also at some stores and shows

What do you think about people downloading music instead of buying records now a days? This band was built already in the streaming era. I think its ok.  Its part of evolution and if you're not able to follow fast pace evolution, you're not able to exist as a business, not only in the music business but in any business

 How do you think the music industry have changed because of this? For better. Anyone can show the world what they have and it wasn't possible before. People listen to more music now than ever before.  Music is way cheaper now than ever before. 

Do you have any role models or idols? I had in the past, not anymore. 

Why do you think that they exist? Its a matter of social identity. You do identify with someone who victoriously represents you in many ways.  Either behavior, social class, background, ideology, some type of struggle .... whatever.  It depends on who is influenced. 

Is it easier to find inspiration from older bands, or bands that are more active today? Older bands got bigger that newer bands will ever be so there are more to atract us. I don't know if artists were more creative today in the past.  I do know that today there are more tools to help creativity then before, but also less deepness to inspiration than before so ... I really don't know.  I think every era has its ups and downs. Pros and Cons.

What have been your biggest obstacles? Investments. To make a brand goes international it takes a shit load of money and there is no clear view to when you'll have it back. It wouldn't be a problem if financial return was a little more feasible.

What advice would you give other bands or artists? Be in fact and artist and mind the people you'll need to make your carrier possible. All the rest comes second. 

How do you get psyched for a gig? The crowd.  I hear the crowd.  That is enough. 

Do you have any new material? Yes. We have just released a single called Febre.  You can find it at Spotify and other  streaming platforms as much as on Youtube. 

What are your web sites?

How can people reach you? 

What are your plans for the future? Play in the whole wide world and make this band as big as it can get in this era we're living in. 

Do you have something to add? Project46 is the first metal band to break through in Brazil in the last 26 years.  This is very important for the whole Brazilian metal Community as much as for the Latin american metal community. Make this band an international succes mean longevity for this market in this part of the world. We do carry a great responsibility.
