1. You are almost 3 years of formation. However most of the members comes from previ os bands such ANATOMY and HELLSPAWN. I  would like to turn back and remember some positive and negative moments of your musical careers.

Scars of Sodom was formed in 2010 by Lord Slayer and I. We began writing the tracks for our first recording. We then completed the line up with members from bands such as Anatomy, Hellspawn, Hobbs Angel Of Death and Belligerent Intent. The most negative I can remember was probably attendance to shows, but every band will experience that at some point. The positive for me is Scars of Sodom. Every band I have been involved in over the years has led me to this point. I am fortunate to be playing with the best musicians in Aussie Metal.

2. Your musical approach is mostly focused on extreme black metal, however you have introduced some epic moments with great instrumentalization. Could you please tell us a little more about your  compositions?

Lord Slayer wrote all the songs to our first release 'Bound By Deaths Chains'. We have many influences, Black and Death Metal is the core of what we write but sometimes we add a little melodic chaos. It depends of what the song needs or where we want it to go.

3. I am curious to know more things about your debut album “Bound By Deaths Chains”. Where did you record? What kind of critics have you received so far?

The debut 'Bound By Death Chains' was recorded at Throw the Goat studios in Melbourne Australia. We haven't had anyone critic it because we haven't officially released it, we are looking for the appropriate host to bring our music to the masses. Interested labels/distro should get in contact.

4. You've been playing some shows recently; are live shows a central aspect of SCARS OF SODOM? What have been the best and worst live experiences you've had?

Live performances are an integral part of Scars of Sodom, we are a visual commanding band. Every show we do gets better and we welcome all that come to see us into the Church of Sodom.

5. The song I like the most from your album is “Abbey Of Thelema”, could you please pick this song and reveal the lyrical and musical aspect as well as mention if there is a special story behind?

The song 'Abbey Of Thelema' is loosely based around the life of occult master Aleister Crowley. After seeing the documentary "The Wickedest Man In The World' it inspired me to write about him and his achievements as an occultist, explorer, pervert etc.

6. Are there any certain religious or philosophical beliefs within the band? What are your attitudes towards fans that like your music but do not have your ideals?

Everyone develops their own interpretation of what they believe based of teachings, experiences whatever. If someone doesn't have the same belief as us but likes our music thats ok, it's the metal we create that they are drawn to.

7. How would you define Black metal?  In your opinion, how much did the black metal scene change compared to the late '80-s/early '90-s?

There are different genres blending with black metal. Black Metal is always changing and evolving. The cult bands of the 80's such as Bathory, Venom, Sarcofago inspired legions of metal heads to play Black Metal, they started the evil feeling. The 90's developed into something different, the music became more extreme and burning churches became the thing to do. I think now days its more about the music and that evil feeling again.

8. what do you think about the current Black Metal scene worldwide. Which are the bands you have the biggest respect for?

There are some really great bands out there right now. We have respect for bands like Nocturnal Graves, Gospel Of The Horns, Watain, Behemoth, Bathory & Beherit.

9. What would you consider the hardest part about playing in an Underground band?

The hardest part about being in an underground band is probably getting exposure.

10. Well, I´ve got no more questions! What would you say to our readers in conclusion?

Hail to the South American metal heads we hope to be playing a show in Brazil next year. Cheers Gorthaur and The Pain Fukktory webzine. Check/like the Scars Of Sodom facebook page for updates and details.
