What's your style of genre? We are mainly influenced by the Thrash and Death Metal of the 90s but do not like the barriers, we can incorporate Hardcore, Punk or even black metal or even more modern sounds
What inspires you? So many things, art in general, what surrounds me, I analyze a lot and surely too ;-), and then music of my youth, I find it difficult band interesting today
How often and where do you reherse? We try to see each other at least once a week because I find it more effective for band cohesion, I find the so cold and poor rendering of "band" working remotely
Do you have other interests of work outside the band? Personally, I do a lot of pictures, often far from the music ;-), I draw and for some time, I am training in the art of tattooing
Are you looking for a booking agency, and what are your thoughts around that? We would like to move to another level, we are actually looking for a booker and a label but alas it is very complicated in the world of music and especially with this style
What made you decide to make this music? I've always been a fan of rock, already I was listening to rock of the 50s / 60s then I discovered Queen and this guitar sound and then the revelation in 89 with MetallicA
Who does the composing and writes the lyrics? For composition, I bring most of the structures of pieces (guitars, bass and drums), Cyril also brings a lot of riffs, we are rather complementary, then we work in repetition together and then Thierry takes care of the lyrics.

Where can people buy your merchandise? You can buy the merch from our bandcamp but also by asking this address,
What do you think about people downloading music instead of buying records now a days? The world has changed but I think that real fans of music still buy the discs, at least I dare to hope
