Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
We come from a little town called Šid( Serbia ). The band existed as a project for over a year - from the beginning of the year 2008 until the summer of 2009. All of the songs from our demo "Fire At Will” originate from that period. It was a "two-man band” at the time. The original members were Srdjan Ranisavljević(guitar) and Slobodan Stanić(bass). Slobodan was in the band for only a few months, when Srdjan Hardi took his place. The line-up was completed in the summer of 2009, when Petar Barna(drums), Bojan Goluža(vocals) and Stevan Milanković(vocals) joined the band.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
Our music is based on thrash metal, with elements of black metal and hardcore. The Most influential bands for us are: Slayer, Kreator, S.O.D., early Metallica, Sodom , Dissection, early Sepultura, Biohazard, Madball, Cro-Mags, Pro-Pain…
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
Because it is well played, very energetic, ass-kicking combination of a couple of different styles.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
So far, we’ve released only one demo called "Fire At Will”, which contains seven songs. It was recorded and self-released in the autumn of 2009. We’ve received very good feedback from both, the public and the media.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
We are very active when it comes to live performances and we try to play as often as we can. So far we’ve shared the stage with many Serbian bands, such as Awaiting Fear, Ashen Epitaph, Scaffold, Obscured, Hellmade, M.A.D & Goya, Rapidforce… We’re also planning shows outside Serbia in the near future.
What sould labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
Our work is available for free download on many websites and blogs, it was aired on domestic(BGD 202) and foreign radio stations(Metal Express Radio, Radio Quebec…) and it was reviewed on the Serbian Metal Portal, Nocturne Magazine, Audio Heaven blog… We’re just five metalheads that really like what they do, combining the elements that we think are the best in thrash, black and hardcore and we are doing a hell of a god job.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
By the end of this year, we plan to enter the studio and record our first full-length album and hopefully find a label. Also, we will continue to play live and promote our work.
