Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
The band consists of 3 core members, Noor, Astaroth, and Alec. We have various other musicians helping with our live bass and drum positions right now. Noor is the vocalist as well as the guitar player. Astaroth is also a guitar player, and Alec is our keyboard player.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
The three of us are very classically influenced, which we've been told shows in our music. Aside from the classical influence, we are into the Los Angeles 80's Metal scene. Bands from that Era influence us, as well the modern metal scene. I'd also like to point out that were very influenced by the black metal genre, Astaroth and Noor have been in Black metal bands in California ever since they started playing guitar early in their teenage years. Our band as a whole has respect for the Black Metal Genre, Its Customs/rituals, and the way of life black metal has come to be for so many people all over the world.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
If you're into melodic metal, with a particular interest in guitar playing and keyboard melodies. Our Guitars and keyboards often harmonize during our melodies, so fans of melodic metal would be the right kind of metal heads. Our music is also fast, and there are dark progressions and passages throughout our music.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
So far we've released our self produced first album "Astronomy" . Its been released on Amazon music, Itunes and over 40 of the most popular music download websites.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
We've played locally in California, but we plan to start invading other territories soon.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
Were definitely a Shred band , and were dark and melodic. People interested in Classically influenced , melodic metal with a modern sound at the same time wont be dissapointed.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
We're actually already working on the second album, Were done with about 30% already.
