If you only like Death Metal, you will never understand or like our music.

Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
Because we kick ass! A lot bands say this, but we do! And a lot of bands say this as well, but the difference is… the don´t! We do!
We are not bound to a style or musical borders. Also we do not bother with trying to create something totally new. We just make our origin sound and that´s it! No rules, no borders! The same counts for metalheads, simple thing, clear solution!
