1. Can you tell us a little bit about the band for those that have never heard of you before?
Hello, we are Axecuter from Curitiba, Brazil. We play 100% Heavy Metal with no modern crap influences. The band started oficially in the beginning of 2010 and we already have three releases: "Bangers Prevail" (cassete-ep, Infernö Recs and Canometal Recs, 2011), "Innocence is our excuse" (7"ep, Dying Victims Prods, 2012). Our first full lenght is available since March 2013, and it´s called "Metal Is Invincible", also via Infernö Recs.
2. How would you describe your musical sound?
Some people say we play "thrash" or "speed", but we prefer to say we just play Metal music, raw and straight to the point.
3. When I listened to the album and sounds like it could of easily been released in the 80's, what are your thoughts on the newer metal styles that have came out since then?
Yes, that's the spirit of Axecuter, you got it right! Newer metal styles? No, we don´t care about that. What was made in the 70s and 80s is enough for us, we don´t need more.
4. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
In our lyrics, we put our opinion and our points of view about past and nowadays metal scene and also our personal experiences with heavy metal.
5. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?
"Axecuter" is just a pun, a fusion between the words "axe" and "executer". We wanted a band name which is simple and strong. It fits good to what we need, that´s ok.
6. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?
We did some gigs, yeah, but nothing really enthusiastic. I think our show with Assassin was really cool. Our stage performance is common, like thousand of bands everywhere. Just three guys playing their instruments. We go to the stage, play and leave, that´s it. On the other hand, we appreciate performances of bands such as Judas Priest, WASP, Accept and many more. It means that we don't stand on the stage like a tree, haha! We like to bang our heads and make the audience bang theirs with us.
7. Do you have any touring plans for the future?
No tours planned. We are a underground band, extremelly underground. We play as much as possible, but not very often, because we have regular lives, job, family etc. We won´t try to make money with the band.
8. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of thrash and old school metal?
It´s being good, really good. Our music is destined to die hard old school metal maniacs only, and all those people are accepting our music very well, we can´t complain.
9. What is going on with the other musical projects these days?
Axecuter is our focus now. Baphometal has no projects nowadays and Danmented has been playing with Death Metal act Imperious Malevolence for three years. We're looking for new bassist, let's see what will happen.
10. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
We´ll do more of the same, no progression, no modernity, just metal. We play what we want and what we like to hear.
11. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
We are 100% influenced by the spirit of the 70s and 80s, that old atmosphere. We basically listen to what we are used to: 80s metal.
12. Outside of music what are some of your interests?
Pussy, tits, legs and butts. Porn stuff in general. Barbecue and pizza... Eat and sleep. We are not regular family guys and we hate our fucking jobs, so besides metal our only interests are sex and caloric stuff.
13. Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
Thank you for this interview and also thanks to all old school die hard maniacs around, for your endless amazing support! BANG YOUR HEAD UNTIL YOU'RE DEAD!
