Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Ok, WARCHEST was formed on 2009 by Chris Peláez (guitars/vocals) and former drummer Pato Peláez (Chris brother). We were tired of playing in cover bands so we decided to make our own music. On 2011 we released our first album "Aftershock" and recently on September 2015 WARCHEST´s second full lenght "Downfall" was released. There have been some lineup changes since 2009 and current members are:
Christian Peláez: Guitars/vocals
Christiansen Oros: Drums
Tomás Kelly: Guitar
Christofer Oros: Bass

How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
Our style is basically old school thrash metal mixed with some modern elements like low tunning and vocal melodies.

Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
Because metalheads loves adrenaline, power and speed and our music got all of that!

What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
"Aftershock" on 2011 and "Downfall" on 2015 released via DIGMETALWORLD records. Both album were very well received by media and public here in Chile and overseas as well. Every review out there is a good sample of that.

Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Oh yeah, we love play live! That´s why I´m in a band! We play everytime we can but you know the metal scene is not very generous in terms of venues and festivals for this kind of music so we will keep doing our best in order to play more often

What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
Because our music is so cool hahaha! We are a hard working band and very professional and responsable in all things we do so any promoter or label will be happy to work with us. We love metal, this is our life

What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Play live to promote our new album "Downfall" evrerywhere we can!
