Please present your label, when and where was it started, who is involved in its activities and what genres are promoted by it?
Hell-o Adrian & Slowly We Rot Fanzine / Pest Webzine and Infernal Hails to all the Headbangers what spend some time to read this interview, about our label everything begins in 1989, when we started supporting the Extreme Underground with our newsletter and tape trading list called TERRIBLE DEATH NEWSLETTER & TAPE TRADING and also with the fanzines SILENT DEATH FANZINE, DEMONS OF THE MIND FANZINE and HAMMERDEATH FANZINE.
After some years with hard work and dedication we decided find the way to make our own label and get all our projects in only one and in 1993 we started LUCI DIST. PRODUCTIONS, but we continue with promotion to support the Extreme Underground in our Newsletters and Fanzines, but we also start our course with distribution and with organization of gigs, festivals and tours to keep stronger our support to the true Extreme Underground bands.
In 1998 we begin making our own releases with bands like: Dark Agression, Deity Of Carnification, Decayed, Nethermancy, Sarcasmo, Grog, War Master, Expiration, Repugnance, Alcoholocausto, Revtend, and many more, but in 2000 we went living in different countries, we decided to create our own labels, Daniel Slaughter created MURDER RECORDS in Holland with bands like Disfigured Human Mind, Fungus, Grog, Deity Of Carnification, Sanguinary, Foretold, Proletar, Moder, Agonized, Pentacrostic, Deformity, and many more, and Pedro Blaspher created PURODIUM RECORDS in Portugal to release and support bands like: Infernus, Coldblooded, Warlust, Slain, Hellvete, Immanus, and many more, but we continue also with LUCI DIST PRODUCTIONS to continue making our releases and also to distribute and promote the releases from MURDER RECORDS and PURODIUM RECORDS.
In 2003 we also start our official festival called EXTREME METAL ATTACK where we have the pleasure to receive in our stage bands like: Chamber Of Shred, Infernus, Godus, Cryfemal, Alcoholocaust, Witchburner, Lord, Heretic, Desaster, Hellish Crossfire, Kill, Martelo Negro, Nefastu, Goatfukk, Inquisitor, Decayed, Setherial, Baphomet’s Blood and many more... in 2006 we start also our BLASPHEMIC ASSAULT and one year later in 2007 the DEGREDO METAL FEST to work and make warm ups for our festival and tours.
In 2010, we decided make a new reconfiguration on our labels to make all this projects in only one again, and in 2011 we start the HELLDPROD and in the same time we also open our online shop under the name HELLSTORE, where you can get more information and news about us.
Well this is a resume from this long fucking war to raising high the true flag from the True Extreme Underground!!!
Tell us a few words on each or the most important releases of your label, and which of them are still available for purchase.
All our releases are important for us and are honored with all the releases or co-releases what we made until today, because when we do a release is because we like and we want support the band or the release where we invest money to do and promote each release. But in my point of view I have few releases what I’m proud not only about the release but also the pleasure in work with bands like GROG with the release "Scooping The Cranial Insides” CD limited to 1000 copies and later re-released on LP with a great support and co-operation of Wings Of Death from Holland. We are proud in work with all our official signed bands and in all the releases what we have done with them, just check our official bands GROG, PENTACROSTIC, MARTELO NEGRO, INQUISITOR, ALCOHOLOCAUST, INFERNUS, REVTEND, GOATFUKK, WOMB, NEFASTU, FUNGUS, FILII NIGRANTIUM INFERNALIUM, DECAYED.

What are the most important features you look for in a band that is or has the chance to be signed on your label?
For us the most important in the bands what we support are the music, filling and the perspectives what the bands have for the future, is also very important for us when our bands are also able to play live as much as possible, this are points very important for we can sign a band, the rest are in our taste because we only release or support what we real like.
How can a band get in touch with you? What should bands know before submitting their promos for your consideration?
Well for the bands interested in contact us please send us the complete info about the band like biography updated with logo and photo, please add a release or a sample with the sound of the band for we can check. All the stuff received will be promoted in our newsletters.
What's the most important thing in the relationship between you and your bands? What is your label offering to its bands?
TRUTH, I thing is the best word to explain the relationship between label and bands, is on that point we can see if label and band share the same fillings and if we have conditions to work together.
Is there anything you planned with your label and has not yet been completed?
Yes we would change the Blasphemic Assault Festival for Holland, we hope we can do the first edition in Holland this year but is a project in mind and soon we will give more news about that.
How does the future, looks for your label? Any major projects you would like to share with us?
