we played we were actually doing a recording but everything went to shit ! haha , and im
not going to name name's or anything but i always say that things happen for a reason , 
but now that we are active again , we are rehersing so we can do that first step . 
What made you decide to make this music?
well i always wanted to have my own band , as we mentioned before all of us three
have played in other bands , i had other bands but there were not my own personal
band's or projects , besides the inspiration i get from others i always liked to play
guitar and i remember the very first thing i said to myself growing up & watching band's live 
doing their stuff , i said , man ! i want to do that some day . and here we are hehe.
What are your songs about?
War , as i mentioned before all my inspiration comes from reading histoy , or watching movies
one of our songs is actually inspired in the movie saving private ryan , the song is called
blood from the fallen.
Who does the composing and writes the lyrics? most of the music is done by me , but Eduardo & Christian also do their part, all lyrics are done by me .
Do you start with the music or the lyrics? first the music , i can come up with a few good riffs , and just put it all together and then i do the lyrics.
Do you compose in a certain inviroment? home mostly .
Have you done any covers live? one time a few years ago we did troops of doom from Sepultura .
What language do you sing in? English , one of our lyric's is written in spanish , but we have not added the music to it yet . 
What are the least and most people to attend one of your gigs? we had shows like with 20 people including the bands wifes and girlfriends hahah, i think for the most maybe above 100 people .

What was your latest gig? last gig we did was actually more than a year ago for the zombie walk that is done every year here in Tj  it was a battle of the bands gig wich the winner would play for all the zombie's.
we did not win , that's a shame , zombie's head's would off being flying all over the place from to much headbanging hahah .
Where do you plan to gig the comming year? anywhere if posible ! haha .

What do you think about people downloading music instead of buying records now a days?
wow , good question , i think most of us have done illegall downloading hehe , 
but if you look at it from the muscician's point of view it's not good at all , it's 
obvious that's bad for bussiness , me personally i always like to buy the records so 
i can have the original art work and recording .
How do you think the music industry have changed because of this? well i think that illegall downloading music has had a significant impact on the music industry resulting in a loss of profits and jobs, and changing how music is delivered to the masses. thats the reallity of it .

i think it does help a lot , there are lot's of people out there that read more than
others , or that for some reasons cant atend gigs or concerts , also labels and agencys
do their reading so , someone , somewhere out there will read our interview and for that
we are trully gratefull for this opportunity . thanks !
Do you have any role models or idols? yes i do , if i have to name one it's Erik Rutan (ex MorbidAngel), now in Hate Eternal.
Is it easier to find inspiration from older bands, or bands that are more active today? i think both , as for my part , from both older and newer bands .
What have been your biggest obstacles? money$$$ haha , simple as that .
What advice would you give other bands or artists? dont give up ! , follow your dreams , believe in yourself and you will get to where you want to be .
How do you get psyched for a gig? well , their always lot's of emotions , before any gig im always super nervous, once im up on stage everything is cool , i think for some other people it's the other way around , or like most people say just imagine all the audience nude hahahah, it work's for me .
