Erico :HELLO PAUL,ITS AN HONOUR TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK WITH YOU ABOUT DANTESCO....THIS BAND PLAYS EPIC METAL WITH A LOR OF TRADITIONAL DOOM ELEMENTS,ITS THE MIX THAT I ALLWAYS FELT EVERYTIME I HEARD THE RECORDS OF BLACK SABBATH WITH DIO ON VOCALS...TRADITIONAL,BUT EPIC,BUT DOOMY!
THIS BAND STARTED FROM THE SPLIT OF SOME OTHER BANDS IN THE ISLAND,THEY HAD AN IDEA OF A BAND AND ME AS A LONG TIME FRIEND WAS INVITED TO MAKE THIS MUSICAL TRAVEL...AND HERE WE ARE...DANTESCO.
RIGHT NOW 2 RELEASES FROM THE BAND ARE OUT....SEVEN YEARS OF BATTLE A NEW ALBUM WITH SOME GREAT NEW MUSIC AND DANTESCO-ST THIS ALBUM CONTAINS OUR FIRST DEMO THAT IS CULT STUFF FOR THIS KIND OF MUSIC FOLLOWERS AND SOME COVERS AND EXTRA STUFF.....NEXT SUMMER OUR NEW OFFICIAL ALBUM ""WE DONT FEAR YOUR GOD""...WILL BE OUT BY ROCK IT UP RECORDS IN GERMANY.

-What "Dantesco" means?
 Erico :DANTESCO IS THE STYLE OF WRITING OF THE GREAT DANTE ALIGHERI THE WIRTER OF THE COMEDY (DIVINE)...IT IS ALSO THE EXPRESION WHEN SOMETHING CATASTROPHIC HAPPENS.
-Tell me about your influences and the insipirations of the lyrics!
Erico :INFLUENCES FOR THE MUSIC ARE A LOT...FROM CLASSICAL MUSIC TO TRADITIONAL MUSIC FROM OUR ISLAND TO OUR METAL INFLUENCES AND FAVORITE BANDS AS BLACK SABBATH,DIO,RAINBOW,MERCYFUL FATE,CANDLEMASS,SOLITUDE AETURNUS,HELSTAR,OMEN,MANILLA ROAD,LUZBEL,ROOT....I WRITE ALL LIRYCS AND MY INSPIRATION COMES FROM HISTORY,EPICS,PHILOSOPHY,HUMANISM,PAGANISM(THAT I PRACTICE),AND ALL THE CRIMES THAT THE PASSION FOR A MAN THAT NOT EVEN EXISTED DID AND STILL DO TO OUR HISTORY,CHRISTIANITY!!!!
-And what about your new record?
 Erico :SEVEN YEARS OF BATTLE.....HAS SOME INCREDIBLE STUFF ...SONGS LIKE CARNIFEX(ABOUT A PAGAN ARRESTED AND SLAUGHTERED IN PUBLIC AND THE VENGEANCE OF HIS CLAN OVER THE KINGDOM/CHURCH/TOWN)...THE BURNING TIMES(A SONG ABOUT A BEAUTYFULL WOMAN VIOLATED,HUMILIATED AND KILLED BY THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH BECAUSE ALL PRIESTS WANTED TO HAVE SEX WITH HER AND SHE WAS A PAGAN,VIRGIN,WITCH)....RASPUTIN(SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT THIS MAN>?).....PURINOS POLEMOS(A SONG ABOUT THE LUSITANIAN HERO,VIRIATHUS,THAT BY HIS TIME WAS THE IBERIAN ROMAN NIGHTMARE)....ANIMA ET CORPUS(IS A SONG CALLING CATHOLICS "'ANTROPOFAGUS"",CANNIBALS...AS THEY ETA THE FLESH AND DRINK THE BLOOD OF THEIR GOD....HAHAHA...WHAT AN ABOMINATION...ALL DESERVED TO DIE).....EL BAILE DE LAS BRUJAS(DESCRIPTION OF A REAL SABBATH NIGHT...DEDICATED TO THE ORDER I AM PART OF""LA ORDEN DEL PENTACULO ANTIGUO"").......GUERRERO ""WARRIOR""...(BLOOD,WAR,ABUSE,VENGEANCE,MORE BLOOD)....
-Tell me a few things about your album " Pagano " Personally is my favourite of yours!
 Erico :PAGANO IS A GREAT ALBUM AND AN ALBUM THAT WE LOVE A LOT...WHEN THE BAND WAS PASSING SOME BAD AND STRANGE TIMES...CAME PAGANO AND THE ENERGY OF THE GODS GAVE US A TRACK....IS A BRILLIAT ALBUM
-What about live shows ? Any tour or someting like that confirmed?
Erico : WE PLAY SOME GIGS IN PUERTO RICO EVERY YEAR ONLY LIKE 3 OR 4....WE HAVE THIS YEAR USA,ARGENTINA AND COLOMBIA,....CHILE IS WAITING TOO!
-How difficult is to line up a succesfull band in your country?
Erico :T IS VERY HARD AS IS NOT A CULTURE BASED IN ROCK ROOTS LIKE ARGENTINA OR SOME EUROPEAN COUNTRIES....ALSO IS NOT POPULAR AT ALL,NO RADIO,TV,PAPER...NOTHING....NOW SOME GOOD THINGS AND GROWING OF THE SCENE IS HAPPENING BUT IT NNED A LOT OF TIME AND EDUCATION FIRST...BECAUSE WHEN YOU HAVE A BAND THAT WORKS A LOT FOR THEIR OWN AND HAVE SOME GOOD RESULTS,YOU BIGGER ENEMIES ARE THE OTHER BANDS FROM THE ISLAND MOST OF THEM TALKING SHIT ABOUT YOU AND DO NOTHING 
TO WORK THEIR MUSIC OUT.
-Well dude , any last word you want to say to the readers???
Erico : AS ALLWAYS METAL POR SIEMPRE(METAL FOR EVERS).....AND KEEP LISTENING TO OUR MUSIC THAT IS MADE WITH THE HEART OF A WARRIOR...SALVE ODIN!!!!THANKS TO YOU AND ALL DANTESCO BROTHERS AROUND THE WORLD! 
-Thanks a lot dude :-)
