MySpace Interview – Raíces Torcidas

So, who are you anyway?

We are a death metal band from El Salvador, Central America. We are called Raíces Torcidas, Crooked Roots would be its translation.

Describe your sound for us.

Well, the band is mainly death metal, it has evolved from the first album and the band members have also been changing so the sound is changing, now with a more new school death metal. And the description couldn’t be complete without saying HARD WORK.

So you rate yourself then?

We are THE death metal band from El Salvador, our name as a band is 10 years old now, and we hope our recognition gets wider in other countries now we have a consistent sound and work.

Who are your influences?

Some oldschool death metal, as morbid angel, cannibal corpse, suffocation, some carcass, napalm death, at the gates also but with some new school like aborted. Fortunately we’ve had the chance to share stage with some of them like CC and ND.

Tell us one of your musical secrets.

Basically we have found the actual line-up with the people with the most responsibility we ever had, we rehurse more frequent now and try our best in the compossing of our new songs, trying our best to stand out from all the bands and make our name of respect in and outside our country.

What’s in the future?

We hope we’ll have a new album, we are now compossing right now, by mid 2009. We’d love to tour in other countries we haven’t played yet and keep on working in this shit.

What’s your claim to fame?

Raíces Torcidas just wants to be invited and play as many places we can, to get our music anywhere we can and show everyone what we, the salvadoreans, are made of

Musically, where do you see yourself in 10 years time?

The band will be a legend, our legacy to the metal scene in our country will be obvious. Still if we’re playing or not as a band we’ll be turning peoples head to our country and showing all what we can do
