1.How the band started?
The band was officially born in 2011. After rehearsing with several musicians and the arrival of our drummer Matthieu Garin, it was crucial to materialize our sound.Then two year later, lead guitarist Youri Benaïs and bass player Arthur Leparc joined us. We had struggled to establish a solid line up with a singer, so rhythmic guitarist Christian Botero decided to do the vocals.
2.Which band is your role model?
Honestly, we don’t have a role model band, each of us have different influences and a lot of tastes in common, especially in extreme music. We just play sincerely what we like with a direction and a esthetic of what we want to show. Being us and not trying to emulate bands that we like.
3.What do You think about today’s metal scene?
It’s nice to see that not everybody’s playing old school, and there are totally new subgenres being born. Of course there’s still plenty of room for those old school bands as well, and from an artistic point of view it might be even harder to make traditional thrash/death/black/younameit metal and still differ enough from other bands.
4.How would you describe in one sentence your work?
Happiness is nothing but an illusion – Loneliness, Depression and Suffering!
5.Why did you decide to play this musical direction?
By nature, exorcise all kinds of emotions through sounds that can evoke as close as possible each of our thoughts.
6.Where would you most like to play a concert?
At La Catedral de Sal de Zipaquirá, Colombia. Magnificent to give a ceremony!
7.Do you think that the metal festivals are enough visited?
In Europe it works very well, obviously there are small festivals that struggle to survive but as usual if the line up is really good and the organization doesn’t make grotesque mistakes especially with bands, people would come back.
8.What are you listening to, the most right now?
Several classics: “Wildhoney” from Tiamat, “October Rust” from Type O Negative, the latest Christian Death, Secrets Of The Moon, etc…
