Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
My name is Jorge Montesino (A.K.A. Morbid) and i founded CONCEIVED BY HATE back in 2002 originally called SPIRITUAL DEMISE but then changed to current name because of religious beliefs of other members. We are from El Salvador in central america, we have been playing and putting releases by our own since then. Currently we are 6 members but most of the music and lyrics are written by myself with an strong vibe of old school death metal and thrashy riffs.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
I think is a combination of death and thrash metal, in the early beginning structure of songs were little more complex but it has been evolving to much simpler sound. As said before we are 6 members with different personalities so I will answer for myself, I think my main influencial bands musically and artistically are DECEASED, DISSECTION, BATHORY and ASPHYX, there are so many others that also got my attention but I think these ones until today I still like and listen a lot.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
This is Death/Thrash made from the heart and from a country not to famous for metal bands internationally, so you can expect 666% honest music forged in HellSalvador!!
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
We have released 1 demo, 1 EP, 1 Full Lenght and 3 Splits as below:
Lost in the Gardens of Hate Demo 2005
Witness of Decay EP 2009
Pestilence Reborn Full-length 2012
Inner Hate / Selective Procreations Split 2013
The Figure of Uneasiness / Below the Deck of Opulence Split 2014
Coalition of Death Split 2015
I think the reaction from public has been improving and getting bigger mainly internationally which is my main focuse.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Yes, we have always play live since the beginning, lately in order to promote our last releases and to gain more exposure and be able to sell our merch we have been playing a lot this year locally, our country is not so big so playing for example 2 or 3 shows per month is a lot.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
I do not try to read peoples minds or try to manipulate them for my benefit but what I can say is that they can find music made from the heart and this is a band that has been standing firm for more than 10 years with our without any support just because I believe in what we do and we enjoy it very much, so no plastic band here.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Currently we just released under my label MORBID SKULL RECORDS a split “Coalition Of Death” with a colombian band called AKHERON and we are promoting it to get distribution, also trying to put out also the vinyl version. Regarding other plans currently I am working on the music for the second album that I hope to get at least produced by this year.
