At the beginning of the 2004 I received a call of Moises (ex-bassist) with whom we begin. ... playing covers of Drottnar, Mordecai and Immortal souls.

Metalerosal: What is the message that you bring us through Soterion?

 The idea is to show the message or the word of our Lord Jesus Christ and we adapt our lyrics to events that occur in our lives or things constantly relative, in this case black metal, the word of God should always be brought to light.

Metalerosal: Which are the influences of the band?

Lately we have adopted a sound seemed to Dimmu Borgir with something of Antestor but in reality we maintain always a somewhat primitive style very brutal. We add great melodic but brutal quantity of guitars like the style of bands as megiddon also we set us in Sorrowstorm.

Metalerosal: When you guys plan to release your new material?

We will record in the middle of this winter. we expect that the demo can be released in August or September. The demo will be a promotional and will be totally independent.

Metalerosal: I have heard that the scene of Christian metal is growing in Chile.. Can you tell us how is the Christian metal scene there?

Well yes, many bands have arisen and is good to tell it because I have seen true spirit in those bands. Also various Christian festivals have been performed and a good quantity of tocatas (small concerts).

How do you classify the bandís sound?

Soterion is playing atmospheric black metal with some sounds of the primitive one grim black metal. with the time itself it's been tuning up and in a future the band will adopted a sound alike to the style of bands as Immortal, Dimmu Borgir or Lord Belial.

Metalerosal: Which are the goals for the next year?

We expect to reach the hearts of various metal heads in the name of Jesus. Also we want that Soterion mature so much the lyrical thematic as musical maturity. With effort and dedication all goes tuning up. We want to have a good musical level to attract fans of the secular scene.
