1) For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
The band was founded in 2011. Few years were spent for searching style of music in which we would like to play. Finally as result of our searching, has become our album "Anywhere Is Everywhere" which was released at begining of 2014. Previously we have issued EP "The Road To Eternity" and single "Change Your Fate", but they can’t be compared to our full-length album.

2) Recently you have released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?
We have put all the best which we could during the process of recording our full-length album "Anywhere Is Everywhere". Heavy and melodic riffs, melodic vocal, which no one can repeat, strong bass which has similar sounding with Korn and Madvayne, inexpressible , strong , difficult and beautiful parties of solo guitar's. Moreover, acoustic guitars, fortepiano and cello, are presented in the bonus-track "My Motherland", where we have shown, that we can use not only electro instruments, but also classical as well.

3) On the album you had mostly melodic vocals, are you planning on using aggressive vocals in the future or do you prefer to keep the vocals melodic?
By now we are working on the new album, we leave the possibility presence of extreme vocal, but anyway we'll still keep melodic vocal in a priority.

4) What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Texts in the album mainly based on relations between man and woman. Love and all the consequences of it, as well as pleasures and disappointments. The new full-length album will be different from first.
