This Brazilian act has played their death worship for almost 25 years now! Death Metal fro passion, not fashion!
Who are you and what do you do in your band?
Markus “MKult” Couttinho – Hail, my name is Markus Couttinho and I am drummer and one of the founders of Coldblood.
When/where was your band formed?
Coldblood was founded in January 1992, in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil.
Why did you choose to play Death Metal?
We are in the road for 24 years. Maybe this answer your question, we play Death Metal for passion, not fashion
How do you compose your music? Does only one guy do everything or does everyone contribute?
First our guitarist/vocalist Diego Mercadante comes up with the
ideas and the music, then the both of us get together to think about
the drum and the arrangements. And them we get to the other guys to
pass what we created and begin the rehearsals
Tell us about your lyrics, writing, inspiration etc.
Our lyrics are about the Theist Satanism or Traditional Satanism
like some people like to call. In despite of the fact that everything
in the end be a literary abstract of works wich talks about the subject
we use to say there´s no inspiration, only lamentation. We do not accept
the world like it seems to be, but we accept who we are inside of it,
that´s why we play Death Metal, becuse that´s the antagonistic way of social
and religious life.
Is there an ideology behind your band?
I believe that the other question can say a little about our ideology. There´s no reasons to enter in details because it´s too personal, a lt of things makes sense only for us. The source of studies can be the same but sometimes the interpretations can fit in your own search and experiences in life. There really is an ideology people must find on us, but in our songs and not in the positive.
How do you see the state of Death Metal music these days in your country and in general?
In all the sub genres we have in Metal, in my opinion, Death Metal is the only one wich stands for it´s feets. We may not be living a good moment for the style but we are still alive and we are too many. In Brasil we have a strong scene with very good bands writing good songs and working hard. Death Metal is developer…it will always Reign!
What are your long term plans as a band? What do you want to achieve?
Our aim is to have a solid work. Release albums and get on the road. Be in a good label and with this develop our work more and more professionally leading the art and music not to the spotlights.
Name an other Death Metal band from your country that everyone should hear.
