How is it that you started playing music? Just our love of metal and music in general prompted us to wanna live that dream, and play in a band of the the style we love and adore. That is heavy metal.
What are your names? / Who plays what? / How old are you? Roy Robichaud, lead vocals and lead guitar. Chris Deveau, rhythm guitars. John Scribner, drums. Trevor Hickey, bass and vocals. We're in our late 30's.

Chimira, and the gods Black Sabbath.
How often and where do you rehearse? We rehearse at Roy's place, where we have our headquarters/studio space.
How have you developed since you started with the music? Musically our riffs have gottn better, melodic and technical. Lyrically has developed ten fold in subject
and overall better written.
Do you have other interests of work outside the band? Cars, our families, video games, and travel
Are you looking for a booking agency, and what are your thoughts around that? We are a very DIY type of band. Booking agents tend to be people who themselves have never toured, played
in a band, or have any real knowlegde of booking shows. Which is a real shame, as they could be very
helpful, IF and ONLY IF, the have had experience themselves with it.
Are you looking for a label, and what are your thoughts around that?
We are not actively looking for a label per se, our focus right now is to continue writting the new record,
and then we will pick that back up after we play shows/tour to support the sophomore record. It is not
a high priority right now.
What made you decide to make this music? Just our true love and passion for it, as it is a real release for us mentally and physically.
What are your songs about? Religion, Death (not so much as they used to be), Politics, Paranormal, and day to day modern life
Who does the composing and writes the lyrics? All of us.
Do you start with the music or the lyrics? Half and half. Trevor really writes lyrics first and works the vocal line around the music after.
Do you compose in a certain enviroment? No, just at jams, or if a certain mood strikes. At home, work, or whereever.
Have you done any covers live?
A Metallica medley, Black Number One by Type O Negative, Push the Venom by Kataklysm,
Edgecrusher by Fear Factory. Plan on a couple more in the future.

Where can people buy your merchandise? Either in person at our shows, or on our website
What do you think about people downloading music instead of buying records now a days? It is a necessary evil that we can not control. If people downlod the records, and like what they hear,
they can pick the record up at a show etc.
How do you think the music industry have changed because of this? It has changed it dramatically. Almost for the worse. It has made it harder to gain more notoriety, and harder for bands to earn a real decent living off of the craft.

Why do you think that they exist? They exist, and inspire us due to the same passion for music and metal that we ourselves have.
Is it easier to find inspiration from older bands, or bands that are more active today? More from the older generation, but we have inspiration from newer bands as well.
What have been your biggest obstacles? Band member changes.
What advice would you give other bands or artists? Don't give up your dreams, practise, and be relentless. Professionalism is a HUGE thing as well. Don't be a
jerk and no one owes you anything.
How do you get psyched for a gig? Crank up our fav tunes.
Do you have any new material? Two new songs as of right now, more to come.
