Interview - Overhate


Overhate is band that started in 2003 in Caracas, Venezuela. Our aim was to create thrash / death metal music with progressive touches., So far we have done three records, and toured Venezuela and abroad. We are going into 2023 with a new single, and another record for you all.

Line up: 
We are Giancarlo Vettor on guitar and vocals, Oswaldo Contramaestre on Guitars, Samir Acosta on Bass / Backing vocals and Ronald Del Aguila on Drums.

How do you sound like? 
a truck with two chainsaws in the front going downhill with no brakes, taking all on it’s path!

God in a Trench (2007), 
Relentless is our Strength (2011), 
New Beginnings are Met (2020).

What are your Influences?
Most of the bay area / Teutonic thrash metal, 90’s death metal, with a lot of other stuff as well. We all listen to a lot of different kinds of music. Nowadays, when we write songs is just a way of translating the experiences that you have daily into the music and the lyrics. I find this to be a ever flowing source of inspiration.

What do you write about? 
Our last record kind of comprises it the way it is: social / political lyrics, personal and spiritual too. It has been like this since day 1. Our next album though will be a little different, when it comes to that, because we want to avoid repetition.

Your favourite live performance so far? 
There are some, but I think our favourite one until today was Relentless is our Strenght’s showcase, also the Guayaquil rock festival in 2011, and some other individual shows played around Venezuela. There are a lot of memorable ones!

Your favourite records? 
I usually say Kreator’s “Coma of Souls” is my favourite. That’s how I’ve discovered my favourite band!

A musician you would like to meet for a beer? 
King Diamond.
What will you ask backstage if you were the most important band on earth? 
Actually we’d ask just what it takes to be comfortable. I don’t know if I ever will get to be extravagant.
