MM: Where do you draw your inspirations and ideas from 

  • We tend to ignore other bands when writing and try to create our own style and sound, there’s no rules, whatever we come up with is what we have. But the creation of the sound is what inspires us to keep going. 

MM: What would you say is your Bands favourite song ?

MM: What do you like best and worst about touring

MM: Which three Bands would be your ultimate touring buddies

  • Tool, KISS

 

 

MM: What's the most memorable concert you've been to (other than your own) and why

MM: Can you remember the first time you ever played live and how it felt to have people watching you?

  • I was a drummer back then, 18 years old, shitting myself with a terrible $100 buck red Pearl kit. It was scary but exhilarating at the same time 

 

 

MM: Growing up which Bands posters did you have on your bedroom wall.

  • Everyone and everything. My bedroom wall was completely covered in posters. I had some big Iron Maiden ones and KISS

MM: If you could do a cover of any song which one would it be and why?

  • Tears for Fears - Shout. I would love to heavy that song up and add some cool parts to it

 

 

MM: Tell us why we should buy and listen to your Band

  • The album we have has been a Labor of love over 3 years, with love, death and positivity all rolled into 1 package. We feel like we are creating something outside of the box with songs that will appeal to people who like everything from Progressive Rock to Heavy Metal and everything in between
