T: Rite of Passage is very compact death hardcore thrash metal band that have many time in the metal scene, all songs are very short but I think that is forceful music? What think?
Rite of Passage: We are a combination of many styles of music, I come from the Hardcore-Thrash scene,Tory(drums) comes from the Boston metal scene, And John(bass] comes from the Boston Punk scene, Togather I think we make a very interesting combination,not found in todays metal music.
T: Your style is very Sticky That to the instant you begin to do mosh, that anyone that listen song by song want more?
Rite of Passage: I write most of the music and lyrics,most of our songs are around two minutes or so like most of yesterdays thrash tunes,When we play live though we do three songs in a row before we even take a breather,So you can mosh out longer without stoping.
T: John Malignant guitarist of Cancerous Growth continue with your band and left the band, Why?
Rite of Passage: John left the band after we recorded the Blood Coven CD, He had some personal reasons to leave the band,He bought a house and was having a hard time managing his time,also he lived the farthest away from where we rehersed,So he thought it best to leave the band.
T: Rite of Passage - Sins of the Flesh have a cover more gore, and in the music you have more inspiratation of the old Cannibal Corpse.?
Rite of Passage: well Cannibal corpse is one of my fave bands,I listen to alot of different styles of music,Punk,Hardcore,death metal,Black metal,Grindcore,ect But I like the oldschool death metal best.
T: Why the cover of Rite of Passage - Blood Coven is a rite satanic in abstract?
Rite of Passage: The song Bloodcoven is a tribute to Satan himself, ROP is kinda like a witches coven.
T: When I do My Compilation The Legion Of TchorT # 8 in the first time I think that oput 2 songs of you, but I understand that I not do this fore give more opportunity to others bands.
Rite of Passage: I hope you use More of our songs,You have Great Compilations,We want more people to hear our songs.
