Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
The band was founded in 2015 in the city of Limeira, the idea started with a guy named Marcos Nock, he had produced part of the songs on the first CD (FIRE, COLD and STEEL) and invited me to insert my lyrics along with his work. At first the band looked for a simple and direct rock'n`roll sound, with lyrics about the crazy nights, history about the band on the road, etc.
But over time the lyrics started to take on a more serious meaning, portraying social problems, psychological problems, system control and chaos.
The band is formed by Tadeu Bon Scott (vocals), Phil Seven (Guitar), Matheus Bonon (Bass), Giacomo Bianchi (Drums).

How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
We look for a different sound but trying not to lose the old style of the 80's Heavy Metal and Rock'n'roll bands which portrays a direct and extraordinary sound.
In our first album (FIRE, COLD and STEEL) we have already been compared to several bands like Accept, Judas Priest, Motorhead, so, in this new formation we work with a more Metal and Hard Rock sound, something more worked and heavy, looking for other tunings and leaving simple riffs, but not losing the essence of direct and strong communication.
We recovered influences in bands like Motorhead, Pantera, Dio, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Megadeth, Metallica, AC / DC, Slayer and we mirrored guitars like Zakk Wylde, Dimebag, Eddie Van Halen, Joe Bonamassa, Richie Sambora, Gary Moore. Among other great names and bands of Rock and Heavy Metal from the 80s and 90s
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
We are always looking for something new, but whenever we listen to a new band we end up comparing that band with something old and making positive or negative judgments about this band or CD, I think the answer to this question would be "we do a new style but with an old essence or we are the old-new Hard Rock add to Metal, so I think we’re a HARD METAL".
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
The band debuted their first CD called Fire, Cold and Steel in 2015 and since then the support has been very positive from the rock'n 'roll and metal guys, and now we are producing our second CD and we already have it forecast for the release of our single which will be included on this CD, this new work of ours will have a new face, different from our first album, this work is more focused on metal than on Rock'n'roll riffs from which we found the our first CD.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Yes, we think the idea of doing shows is very important because it is the only way to really feel the energy and the answer that the audience needs to transmit to us, we are currently in the studio and in the production process, so we have few shows on the agenda, we are now more focused on part of the production and concentrating to finalize our next CD.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We are a band determined to do serious work, with respect and quality, to which brings a new idea mixed with the old formulas of bands from the 80s and 90s. In addition to solid Riffs, hard sound and lyrics that bring a true message, we want to revive a new concept of metal and Rock in Roll. If there was any doubt in our sound, just draw your own conclusions on our first CD or wait for the brief release of our syngle, which is also incredible.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
We want to continue with our work that is incredible and try not to lose energy or sound power and plan tours and shows soon
Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
Our first CD (FIRE, COLD and STEEL) is already released on all digital platforms: Spotify, Deezer, Itunes, Souncloud, etc. Soon our new single and CD will also also be available, and so new merch stuff.
