Zubseeman has been or standin drummer while we have been searching for The one Who wanna bang some skin for us.
We play deathpunk and we have been doing that since 2016 or something.

We are a band that plays big on irony and "silly" things, and The title felt so right for this debut. And Who knows, maybe we Will save rockn roll?
We were recording it with Ulf Blomberg as a producer at The end studios in Lund, and we feel that he found what we were looking for, so we are pleased.
MM:Which two tracks would you play me to introduce metro your Band
Thats a really Hard question, all songs have something special in them that you wanna show, but i personally would choose Han(d) Solo, and Too smart to be sober... close to them it would be current report, because its really one of a kind song on this album, a song that became much better than we expected, and with a Nice meatloaf part in The end. Albums only ballad.

That would be a good meal of gyros!
MM: One of your songs could appear on a soundtrack or any film or cult tv series would you choose and why Hard question... maybe too smart to be sober or Georgina W Butch in The Netflix series "Tiger King". Because of The people appering in The series and The redneck feeling it gives you!
