We have seen the Brazilian scene from the very best years. We saw Sepultura and Sarcophago since they started playing here in '84 and '85. They were playing really raw thrash/black metal. So obviously since we were at their concerts we would get some influences. Maybe not really directly but the kind of influence that stays in a part of your subconscious. We witnessed this metal scene in Brazil emerge and become really aggressive over the years. We had these influences. We started a band and just wished to follow that path: make things more extreme, faster, whatever. We are doing the same kind of music, but we have this modern sound because we have the approach of modern death metal. We are just giving a following for that; we are proud to be part of [the Brazilian scene] and those bands opened up a lot of doors for the upcoming bands like us. But I have to tell you that some years ago the extreme metal scene in Brazil was almost dead. Everybody here was just caring about thrash metal or whatever, you know, the American, more fashionable kind. So these bands like Sarcophago, Blasphemy, Morbid Angel were not getting so much recognition here. We just started from the ashes of that [intending] to bring again more respect for extreme metal here in Brazil. That's our cause. We fight for this scene because in Brazil there are a lot of bands in other styles like power metal, thrash metal, hardcore, whatever. We came from this [extreme] scene and we are really rooted from the very beginning of it, 'cause we have witnessed all this history...Moyses Kolesne / Krisiun interview, Chronicles of Chaos, 2000
