Sabbaoth - Nowadays, it means a shame. There are no respect, lack of attitude, the audience and bands are quite immature. it´s a pitty but metal is dying day by day!!
12.Did you or any of the members ever read may fanzines back in the early days?What were some of your favorite fanzines to read?Are their any current fanzines or web-zines that you keep up with?
Sabbaoth - Always! We always support good and SERIOUS zines that want to share bands ideas and make a decent work. I can name lots of them from everywhere in the world.
13.Goatpenis comes out of the legendary Brazilian metal scene what is your opinion of Brazil's metal scene over the years?
Sabbaoth - Brazilain bands have great chance to record and share their material nowadays due internet and media. Unfortunatelly I can´t see creativity and originality among them all...most want to copy other bands and are really closed minded!
14.Who are some of your all-time favorite bands from Brazil?Are their any new bands from Brazil that you feel the readers should check out?
YES!! Necrobutcher and Apostasia are the bands I do support forever because they were far beyond the time. Nowadays, bands like Soddamed, Somberland, Fatal Incarned, Volkmort MUST be checked because they do a great and serious work!!!
15.Thank you for taking the time to fill this interview out do you have any final comments for the readers?
I hope that I could make myself clear and those who had never heard on us keep in touch with the band music!!! Keep metal SERIOUS with RADICAL attitude!! Stop the pathetic and shameful way of life!!! NO REMORSE, JUST PUSH THE BUTTON!!!
