future? Morbid] I think the frontiers between countries in the music industry will get shorter and shorter due to Internet, I guess there is a revival of the old times, but it certainly is a cycle so I see that metal could be depressed again in some years if no new bands are coming and staying making honest music. Metal Archives and Facebook says that the band is six persons. Carlos Basagoitia (bass), Morbid (guitar/vomits), Tulio Mata (keyboards), René Vega (guitar), Iosif Najarro (drums), HellBastard (vomits). Is this information correct? Morbid] Currently we are a 5 piece since HellBastard is no longer a part of Conceived By Hate. For recordings we are currently a 5 piece, but a good friend of ours Aldair Mejía is doing the live vocals. Are the members of the band in other musical projects in El Salvador? What are some bands from El Salvador that you like? What are the styles of metal that are popular in El Salvador? [Morbid] Yes, some of the members are working in other projects and so do I. Not sure which styles of metal are most popular, but I guess the black metal is well received and very popular but not sure, I try to keep me isolated in a way from the scene in order to keep my compositions not influenced for what is “successful” or not locally, but there are certainly good bands out there specially from young people that has the passion and still not the fashion. What can you tell us about Morbid Skull Records? Is it difficult to have a record label in El Salvador? Is this company your own record label? Morbid] Of course, it’s difficult, but it’s my new 10

baby ha ha. Yes, I own Morbid Skull Records and basically I manage it on my own so its quite demanding some times when all comes together.

Do you personally have strong opinions about politics in El Salvador, about the political parties Arena and Fmln? [Morbid] Yes, some lyrics could be considered political, but I think they are just ways of describing a reality that we all see but in a way cannot do much about it to change it without getting in trouble, killed or in jail. This reality on the gap between the ones that has it all and the ones that do not have much is always present especially in Latin America. I really do not care much about the local political parties. I am tired of the same shit. How do you see the problems of violence in El Salvador? Here in the U.S. there are violent shootings at schools and churches and some people call it terrorism and things like that. What is your opinion about the situation in El Salvador? [Morbid] I think we are fucked up. This is a complex problem and I certainly do not have all the information since there are faces behind that are controlling and know exactly why this is happening, we are just the people in the middle. The original name of the band was Spiritual Demise in 2002, correct? How was the situation for metal bands in El Salvador at the time? [Morbid] Yes, that was the original name of the band and the concept was a medium to express the obscure side of the soul. I think
