As we said feel days ago, sometimes different things will have space here at Oroborus. Different things from the weekly postings reviews and interviews. For example, we have a review of a fest that we were present, the singles specials and more things that will arise.

What do you think of the Brazilian underground?
We have some rich underground with great bands, but unfortunately we still suffer from a major problem of fanaticism from these people who call themselves "fans" of metal bands and their music. It is extremely difficult to make Metal have attention in a country that somehow is extremely focused with dubious quality of lyrics and with that mentality to think that music is like a competition. It will never take the metal forward.
And another very important point is the mind of the listener metal needs to remain open, open to understand that not everything that has been done previously means being better. Of course, it is important and this is not on question here, but what is done today has a huge quality too. The fact that today there are bands with more modern sound doesn't mean they are bad, but that the underground will turn to something even harder, it is necessary that all the people who listen to metal here understand that the national metal world is much more than only Sepultura, Sarcófago and Krisiun.
And about the worldwide underground?
The worldwide underground metal is the best "place" on the planet! The best bands are at the underground! Different sounds and different creativity. Indeed, the underground metal world is something that makes me speechless!
To become a professional writer, talk to bands like Rishloo, Inactive Messiah, Septicflesh and, above everything else, I dream to be happy.
What do you expect your personal future? I intend to work with bands doing their cover arts (I am a technician in Illustrator and Photoshop/Graphic Design), and have my own projects both in the musical world, as well as being a writer and managing to always show what is most interesting and impressive in the world of underground metal.
And for the future of the blog?
Grandeur! This blog has potential! To believe it will never be a mistake. Here I have the freedom to say what I want and show everyone that if you have a band, someone will listen to your work and probably you will find here a great opportunity to grow and tell us about your work. The metal people must be together, it needs to be a group of people who want to grow up and not just a lot of people who want to fight to see which is the best.
