"It´s time to experience the Thrash / Black metal performed by this band coming from Florence, ITALY. However they aren´t simply as it is described. We can find really fast and sharp riffs, some really evil lyrics and vocals parts and a great rhythmic session, with blazing drumming and powerful bass. This is the representation of their musical identity...

 

1. How would you characterize the development of your band during this 3 years and what are you most proud of achieving as a band so far?
Looking back to this past 3 years I'm really proud about how the band is going on. We grew up stronger and we finally recorded our first Ep, the highest point of the band history until now, in my opinion... Also we are still working on new hellish material, and hoping to record it too in the nearest future.

2. Who came up with this quite unusual name for a band and what does it exactly means?
The name of the band came out one day in 2011 during a rehearsals session, and it was suggested by the guitarist Axer... It's basically the merging of the gruesome and obscure part of the band (Revenant) with the most psychotic and delirious part of our artistic heritage (Acid)... I think that our music fully reflects this kind of insane merging!

3. How much time do you spend on the band both physically but also mentally each day? Is it worth all the time and effort in the end? What do you want with the band?
We spend obiouvsly lot of time on the band, as a big part of our lives... I always seen music as a true way of life, and origin of inspiration... I hope that our musical growth will continue in the way that we always wanted to see.

4. I am curious to know more things about your debut EP and the musical approach of the 5 tracks. I personally find it very varied songs with thrash and black appearances here and there, however one can also find some death riffs and grunt and even clean voices.
Well, this EP is like a huge pit full of our biggest influences, from all the band members. Personally I couldn't figure a better union of our influences than this 5 songs. We got really fast and sharp riffs, some really evil lyrics and vocals parts and a great rhythmic session, with blazing drumming and powerful bass. I like to ear this musical evilness, that represents us perfectly. We got some really fast songs as "Along the Path of Darkness" & "Bleeding Majesty" but also a song like "KK666" that is really gruesome and slow... Even the alternation of harsh and clean vocals is part of the representation of our musical identity. These 5 songs are bloody pieces of our souls.

5. You've played a several shows recently and you have a reputation for your performances; Do you have serious opportunities for live shows in your area? How many times per month can you play live?
Well we played a several live dates through this 3 years of activity, but our live scene in our area is really limited... The "extreme metal" scene is really underestimated in our area, in favour of shitty gigs of worthless cover bands, helped by the plague of "Pay to Play", that's really killing the underground scene worldwide.

6. Have you started to work on new material yet? How does it sound? Any major development since your previous songs?
We're always working on new material, evil and insane as Hell! We're yet preparing the "sequel" of our 1st EP "[Untitled]"... We're also hoping to record a full LP (with at least 10 songs) in the imminent future.

7. Can we talk about an Italian black metal sound the way we talk about a Swedish or Norwegian?
Of course! Italy is a great country for Black Metal. We have some great bands, like Spite Extreme Wing, Kurgaall, Frangar etc. that helped to make the sound of Italian Black Metal became so strong and legendary.

8. What is it about black metal that has to be anti-Christian? Where does that come from and how do you take it one step further for it to not be seen as a cliché?
As the main lyrics writer for the band, to not be seen as a cliché, I usually merge the more Satanic and hellish part of my lyrics with a new way of interpretation of the word "Violence", in its more psychological way. So, our lyrics go further, trying to discover an expression of our inner violence. Anyway I try to keep my Antichristian inspiration still alive in every word I speak...

9. What are your thoughts about the underground scene and the Italian scene in particular?
For me, a musical genre like metal (and in particular our music genre and all the extreme metal scene) must have some solid underground roots. In Italy, thanks to the work of some REAL bands, the underground scene is still alive and rabid.

10. What would you consider the hardest part about playing in an Underground band?
The hardest part about playing in a underground band, is the continue struggle to trying to not be swallowed by the world of all the false music, made of lies and by the heart. But is also the reason that keeps us on everyday in our musical journey

11. Inevitably, we´ve come to the end, What do you have to say to the readers of THE PAIN FUCKTORY Magazine?
Readers of THE PAIN FUCKTORY! We're hoping to spread our disease through you minds! Thank you all for the support! HAIL THE ACID!
