KRISIUN Frontman: I Don't Think SEPULTURA Are Playing As Good Of Music As They Used To

Christopher Porter of Washington Post's Express Night Out recently conducted an interview with vocalist/bassist Alex Camargo of Brazilian death metal veterans KRISIUN. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

On the band's longevity:

"Motivation is the key. We started this thing and we wanna finish it. We still have a passion for what we do. It's been a challenge, especially when you're playing extreme music, but as long you're motivated, we're good to go. Whenever we start feeling tired and miserable, we'll know it's time to go home, time to quit. But up to now, we still feel motivated, and the passion for what we do is the reason we press on."

On KRISIUN being a family project:

"With bands, I know how hard it is to keep the lineup, keep the ideas flowing together. But whenever we have problems, we clear it out right away. We're not turning our backs to each other and walking away. We have issues like any other band, but we solve the problems right away. The music is our passion,and we pretty much have the same ideas and tastes."

"Sometimes you just get tired of seeing those guys, but it's no big deal. The touring thing, you have to be ready. You have to understand people's qualities and faults, and we 're all a bunch of human beings, so it's about understanding each other. Sometimes we get on each other's nerves, but we go for it no matter what."

On the success of fellow Brazilian extreme-metal gods SEPULTURA and KRISIUN's decision to cover SEPULTURA's "Refuse/Resist" on the "Southern Storm" album (hear audio below):

"We're proud of those boys. We're not friends or anything, but we respect those guys. They opened the doors. We felt like it was time to pay tribute to the band. Most people would expect us to play an early song from SEPULTURA — more like a fast track — but we wanted to bring that atmosphere when they were pretty big — just as big as METALLICA or SLAYER in '96, '97. We feel a bit sad with what's going on [with SEPULTURA] these days. I don't think they're playing as good of music as they used to."
