Peruvian underground Metal scene has
always been a referent of South American
Metal, specially in the unholy
territories of Black Metal, well know
are Peruvian bands such Black Angel,
etc… Now there are rising names likes
Penetrator Hammer and, of course, Crown
Of Worms, a band totally devoted to the
good old school sound, mixing influences
that ranges for Thrash, Death to Black
Metal… We talk with Bloodless (guitars)
who kindly accepts to answer our
questions… including some of his other
projects Penetrator Hammer and Bloodless
Hails!!! First I would like to thank you
for giving us this interview… Can you
tell us about Crown Of Worms beginnings?
Hello, Bloodless here! Crown of Worms
started back in mid 2002 when Hades
(ex-member, now in Death Invoker) told
me about starting a band. We started to
play covers and six months later (I
think) we got Inhuman as the band singer
and start making songs. I asked this
drummer I knew to join for recording the
demo and he did. That’s how our
“Glamripper” demo was born. That was
pretty much the beginning of the band.
Why do you decided to call your band
Crown Of Worms? It’s quite a strange
name… Has it some special meaning?
Although the band was formed in 2002,
you have only two (as far as I know)
demos… Why you decide to remain silent
for so long?
I think we are quite active indeed. We
formed in mid 2002 and recorded the demo
early 2004. that’s a year and a half for
creating songs and rehearsing them. The
promo rehearsal 2005 is more limited and
was only a promotional tape for showing
our sound with new members as well as
Let’s talk about “Glamripper”… How was
the reception of this demo?
I think “Glamripper” is excellent and
that’s the way people reacted to this
demo. Of course we only give them to
people interested in metal and not to
everyone we knew. We’ve never cared for
being well known, we just want to share
our art with the right people.
I think an interesting detail that
reflexes the variety of Crown Of Worms
style is the addition of a Mussorgsky
piece and a Sepultura cover as well… How
the idea of adding these two so
I guess I’m a very tolerant person but
when I talk about music, I’m a real son
of a bitch. If it doesn’t kick ass, it’s
gay. As simple as that. I hate talking
about “death metal” or “black metal”
because for me only Metal exists and it
has NOTHING to do with having dyed hair,
wearing shorts, and being an homosexual
hippie . To show that, we covered a song
that was recorded twenty years before
our demo. That’s dedication! About the
Mussorgsky piece, I listen to several
types of music so… I guess it’s the
“Calm Before the Storm” (great Venom
record by the way).
How was the composition process of “Glamripper”?
What the lyrics talk about?
“Glamripper” have six tracks. One done
by Mussorgsky, one done by
and four done by Crown of Worms. I did
three songs, Hades did one and each
composer did the lyrics for their songs
which was done by me and Inhuman. The
lyrics are about morbid tales.
What your main influences, musically and
We like Metal. What can I say? This kind
of question are boring for the readers.
I tell you what, I’ll tell you which
bands we will keep alive when they are
long gone. Those will be:
666 (The Eternal Glory of War), Aura
Noir (fucking Mirage, come on
(Highland Tyrants Attack),
(Nocturnal Witch), Scepter,
Usurper (Two Chicago
Vomit (Temptation and Pleasure),
Carpathian Forest (Some things never
(Angel of Destruction),
(The evil twins), Gospel of the Horns
(Power from Darkness), Pentacle (The
In my opinion your demo ’05 is better
than “Glamripper”… It shows a more
original and personal approach… What do
you think about it?
I think the demo is more dark and
monotonous and the promo tape is more
energetic and represents our actual
musical direction better. Anyway, we’ll
try to do some tracks in the vein of
“Glamripper” ‘cause we think that demo
kick fucking ass.
Talking about your “Demo Reh. 2005”… How
has been the reception of this work in
comparison with “Glamripper”?
You know what? The people who liked our
demo told us they like the promo even
more. Some say the demo was really good
so it’s difficult to win that and some
people say the demo is more dark and
Personally, I thing they show different
steps in our musical career and we will
be able to talk about a “band sound”
when we release our second album.
Why did you decide to release this work
in cassette format? I understand is a
little expensive in comparison with the
Cd.r format… Do you think the tape
format gives a special feeling to the
I think that if you release a record in
a Pepsi bottle, and it is good, I
wouldn’t care. The formats were decided
at the moment for so many different
things. “Glamripper” is supposed to be
re-released in tape format by the guy
who will release the album. It will
contain an exclusive rehearsal side and
stuff like band picture and lyrics/
credits and the music will STILL be as
good as the
release. I hope this will answer the
Can you tell us about your forthcoming
debut? All songs of your Demo’05 will
appear in this brand new work, right?
Yes, that’s why it’s not a demo but a
promo. It served to show what was to
come. Ten tracks are already done for
the album as well as the design for it.
It will be beautiful.
How are your live shows? How has been
your “live” experience?
We have never played live. We have had
lots of invitations but I think we will
only play in concerts arranged by
serious people who are in for the music
and not the money. Playing with top
metal bands is also a must. What will
happen in our live shows? Pure Fucking
Armageddon. At least we have Goat Semen
and Anal Vomit alive to do this for us
until our time come.
Let’s talk about your other band
Penetrator Hammer… How emerge the idea
of this project?
It all started when Mutilation Hammer
asked me to join his band (New year
2004). There were only the two of us
until we found
I have a couple of tracks left from my
Bloodless days plus two brand new ones.
Eventually we released the rehearsal
tape. We are very happy with it and we
are going to record a demo soon. That is
going to be one hell of a demo, believe
The style of Penetrator Hammer is very
different from Crown Of Worms… I think
is much darker and dense… How you define
the sound of Penetrator Hammer?
Of course it have to be different. I
like a lot of music styles so why have
two equal bands? Darker and dense fits
the music perfectly. Great words. I want
to do this really heavy thing with some
variations. Judas Iscariot would be a
great reference. We aren’t as good as
them but it gives an idea.
and lots of bands we like can be a
reference. Originality is not important
for me. I will never copy a riff but I
don’t want to do this experimental shit,
which is by the way, an excuse to make
some money. We don’t want to be a copy,
we don’t want to be inventors, we just
want to release excellent metal. That’s
why we even have our own label. This
shit is just for us and for people
interested in good music.
When can we expect a new work of
This first months will be for rehearsing
and recording Crown of Worms first
album. Penetrator Hammer demo will come
after. I want a very long, dark kind of
demo. Maybe the end of this year or very
early next one will be a possible
release date for new Penetrator Hammer
Can you tell us what happened with your
solo project Bloodless?
Bloodless second demo was ready but the
drummer never showed up. I ended the
project as I was unable to play drums.
Anyway, I used the music for my other
projects (Crown of Worms/ Penetrator
Hammer). Too bad since it would have
been a great demo.
The first time I listened to “Dead
Stars”, I remembered Nargaroth and its
“Orke” demo, with its instrumental Black
Metal songs… and I remembered the vocals
were not added due economical problems…
Why you don’t include vocals in “Dead
Stars”? Was Bloodless an
“Orke” is great like “Fuck off Nowadays
Black Metal”. I can tell you that a
limited Bloodless tape exists (10
copies, but I have the master) and it
contains Unleash the Blades of Death
with vocals, a Venom cover and a morbid
It is called “The Worst of Bloodless”.
Maybe one day someone wants to release
“Dead Stars” with this bonus songs. The
singer in the tape was Bloodless second
singer (me being the first) called King
Mephistopheles. He was great but he went
crazy. I could sing but the instrumental
thing was very interesting for me. It is
a very special demo. I only singed in
the two advance
I made (2002 and 2003). Those were also
limited to 10.
In “Dead Stars” we can find many
keyboard driven atmospheric-classical
pieces… Have you ever considered using
this kind of passages in Crown Of Worms
or Penetrator Hammer?
Penetrator Hammer demo will be full of
keyboard effects, guitar effects, sex,
booze, terror and nightmares.
Crown of Worms don’t need any keyboards.
We just keep it simple. If we need them
one day maybe I will play them or maybe
not because I’m not good at keyboards.
For me keyboards are ok if the music
gets better. Just for some parts not for
all the fucking tracks and that is if
you really need them. In Bloodless I did
metal tracks and atmospheric tracks. I
never mixed them.
would be a fine reference (although I
listen to that demo after releasing
Can you tell us about your time with the
Death Metal band Disinter? It seems that
you leave Death Metal to become a
full-time Black Metal devotee… is that
correct? Have you ever considered
participating in other Death Metal
project/band in the future?
You are wrong. “Black Metal” and “Death
metal” doesn’t exists for me. I wrote
about that before. I joined Disinter
because they needed a guitarist. I
thought their music was hard to learn so
I didn’t accept at first but eventually
they showed me the riffs and I learned
them quickly. That was April 2003 and I
stayed in the band one year. I quit
because I think metal bands should be in
a way they thought was wrong. I was/ am
close to the guys. I have my first live
experience with them and I learn about
touring, and all that from them. That
year in Disinter was great but I also
kept my projects alive. I played in
three bands that year. And as soon as I
leaved Disinter, I released Bloodless
demo and Crown of Worms demo.
I never was into Disinter music. I
played because the shows were very
powerful. When we took the stage it was
great. I did some lyrics and
arrangements but that was it. I knew It
wasn’t really my band but I was there to
learn. I enjoyed working hard in that
band, and hanging out with them but I
just had to do my own thing. Which I did
How emerge the idea of making your own
label Morbidhell Productions? What are
the bands currently labelled under
productions was born with the release of
the Crown of Worms/
split. I really can’t tell you why we
started the label since we were able to
release the split with no label at all…
I can only tell you that it is good to
have a name associating all these great
We have Bloodless, Crown of Worms,
Hammer and The Dead and the Rotten in
right now. If we find a good band and we
want to work with them, we will give
them a call.
The Peruvian Black Metal scene always
has been a good reference of the South
American Metal scene… Have you got
contact with other Peruvian hordes such
the legendary Black Angel, Levifer,
Belzec or Goatsemen? Is there any new
underground Peruvian Black Metal band
you can recommend us?
I have the first three Black Angel demos
and they are great.
demo and EP are really good, one of my
promo is excellent (I would like to see
their promo in 7”) their album is one of
my favourite Peruvian albums. Goat Semen
is total war! Their album will be
legendary… but I think it will be hard
to beat the demo.
We are in contact with lots of bands but
that’s not important.
Real Peruvian destroyers are
Anal Vomit since their cult EP are one
of my favourites. Old bands like Mortem
are also important. New bands like Grave
Desecration are also worth to check.
There are some bands which are really
good but they haven’t release anything
Thanks again for your time and words…
These last lines are all yours…
Expect nothing but total mayhem! Crown
