I interviewed our winner band GRIMTOTEM

For our latest bands battle, I promised one interview for the winner band. Since GRIMTOTEM won that battle, I interviewed Carolina Rebolledo then. Here we go:
01. Hello Carolina! Back in 2011, You founded GRIMTOTEM. How came the idea ? Hello Krissy! The idea came when I met José, Victor and another past member in 2011. It was hard to find people who had those kind of interests at that time, so we thought that it would be interesting to form a band mixing all those influences, then we started to cover a couple songs. About the name of this band,it was inspired just in our chilean totem called "rehue" in mapudungun language. We chose it in the end of that year.

02. Your lyrics are mainly about Chilean History. Do you have any particular favorite history from Chile ? Of course! my favorite one so far is "La guerra de Arauco" (Arauco war). I've been living in that city for 13 years, but many other cities were involved into this 300 years war between spanish conquero…

16/04/2013: Eld is online!

How was born the idea of ELD?
Well, I am also the founder of a folk metal forum called "Sword Chant" since november 2007. This website & I involved into a constant will to support bands by promoting them, sharing their news... Sword Chant ever invited bands to promote themselves over the forum and their news are shared by myself in all the social network pages of Sword Chant.
Meanwhile, I met many artists from everywhere over the internet. They show me they appreciate my free work with Sword Chant & sometimes, ask me advices or some things listeners and medias don't need to know... I've been pleased to help them, ever. 
ELD is the result of their demands to me.
Before ELD, I helped some bands to get some gigs:
- FEJD @ Cernunnos Festival 5 (2011), FR - KRAMPUS @ Samhainfest 2 (mini tour-2012), CZ - WAYLANDER @ Cernunnos Festival 6 (2013), FR
Now, I hope to help some more the bands under the banner of ELD.
You can contact me by email.
