Our attempts to enter Eurovision were fails, so we said fuck it…
With their third album, Die Evil, to surface on 5 May 2015, bassist Tas Danazoglou of Satan’s Wrath takes time out to abuse MR’s Jason Guest about who they ripped off for the new album, why there are no slow songs on it, changes in the lineup, Feta cheese, drugs, socks, balls, and speculation on who’d win in a fight between Lemmy, Cronos and Tom G Warrior…
Thank you very much for taking time out for this interview and congratulations on Die Evil (reviewed here), another great album from the band! But after two magnificent albums already to the band’s name, why did you bother making another one?
Well, 3 is better than 2 and we thought to pollute society even more.
Why have we had to wait two years for another album?
You didn’t wait two years. You waited one year. What you want? An album every two months? Because we can…
Which bands did you rip off for this album? And how did you attempt to disguise them?
We never disguise our rip offs. It’s nice and obvious. Venom, Slayer, Possessed, Hellhammer and Bathory.
There are no slow songs on Die Evil. What’s the matter, don’t you like them or can’t Satan’s Wrath write slow songs?
Our attempts to enter Eurovision with slow songs were fails, so we said fuck it. Let’s make only fast ones. And we are taking a lot of speed now so we wanted to make speed metal. We can make really slow songs too but this time we didn’t.
In our last interview in 2013 (here) you said that this album would “blow your socks off!!!!” and that “Your socks will suck your balls off.” After making the album, do you have any socks left? And are your balls okay?
In general, all my socks have holes cause as I mentioned before we failed to enter Eurovision. But my balls are intact and with a lot of fluids in case you wanna be pregnant or something.
I see that Costa and Nathan Perrier are no longer with the band and Kostas has taken over on drums. What happened? Were they too good for Satan’s Wrath?
It’s true. They could play good so we had to let them go. Only sloppiness is real!!!! We couldn’t pay them either. You know socks with holes and just balls.
What’s Kostas brought to the band?
He brought some Greek feta cheese and drugs so we had to take him in.
What advice would you give to someone wanted to die evil?
Well, to die. Preferably to be buried with a Venom shirt.
Why did God bring evil into the world and will evil ever die?
There is no god. Only evil and it’s eternal.
Who designed the artwork?
Outside me. Inside jondix777
Any plans to play any shows or tour in support of the album?
In a fight between Cronos, Lemmy and Tom G Warrior, who’d win? And how?
Actual fist fights or with instruments? You know decibel fight? Real fight, I believe Cronos. He is a wrestler isn’t he? I always thought Cronos was a beast. Sonic fight, maybe Tom G Warrior cause guitars are louder than bass (dammit!!!)
In the interview I mentioned above, when I asked this next question you said that there was no future, only death and doom, but you’re still here so I’ll ask again: what does the future hold for Satan’s Wrath? Are you going to quit and get a real job or is there more music in the works?
We never had a real job. We are outlaw dirty scumbags from hell.
Thanks again for taking time out for this interview. Do you have any advice or abuse for our readers?
Yes. Give me a second.
