Have any of you played in other bands? Sure! But mainly our drummer Tom. In our opinion, he's most talented in our band so he has still many offers to join other bands. His second band is called NAHUM.Then our gitarist Matej plays in band called Suburban Terrorist as a bassguitarist.Our singer Mark played in his first project called Rape Yourself, but this band broke up. Actually Mark was 17 years old.

How is it that you started playing music? Maybe the  as same story as many others. We grew up as metalheads to our teen ages. Then something has changed in us so we decided to create our own band. But Mark has joined us later. His story is, that he never listened to metal until his 15. Then his friend invited him into his house and they were trying to start with music. Mark came into this much faster than we.
