Pacto De Sangre: We are giving good and long lasting fruit...
Are you persecuted in any way because of your lyrics?

What plans do you have in the future?
Pacto De Sangre: We are going into the studio to start recording our new CD called "The Days of Egypt".
Describe your latest album.
Pacto De Sangre:Our latest album is quite varied and has many styles of metal, defined in different songs, ranging from Comercial metal to thrash. Contrary to that first CD, the second will mix in a very subtle way the more defined Power Metal Style with the speed and the thrash in almost every song, instead of bringing different songs with differents styles of their own.
Where do you usually tour or perform?
Pacto De Sangre: We play all around the Island of Puerto Rico and have already traveled to Dominican Republic.
Any Final Comments?
Pacto De Sangre: We appreciate your interest in us and want to tell everyone that Heavy Metal is a matter of musical tastes and a way of life that has nothing to do with religion and that, like any other music is a vehicle for the message you want to give to it. So you do not need to worship darkness or be a bad kind of person to be a metalhead... Try Jesus and if you don't like it, just go back... God Bless!
