They work with underground metal, Black / Death / Thrash Metal, South American bands.

Very good. For example this year I went to Sweden and there were people there, who already knew the band, and had the ep released by Witches Brew.

9.On the ep you had also done a 'Retrosatan' cover, what was the decision behind doing your own version of one of their songs?
