Describe your sound and lyric style
We could describe it as a modern metal sound, but not “robotic” which gives it an old school vibe.
Our lyrics mainly deal with society, government, and basically – everything that pisses us off.
Yeah it’s banal, but hey – we’re a metal band. What else could we write about? Umbrellas?
Who are your main influences? What else inspires you?
Each band member is actually influenced by different bands and styles of rock and metal – Machine Head, Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying, Megadeth, Metallica, InFlames and even Guns n’ Roses.
So you could say we meet somewhere in between, which creates kind of a meltdown between Thrash, Groove, Metalcore, and Rockn’roll – or as we like to call it – “Melodic Hardcore”
What are you working on now?
Well, even though we have an unreleased full length album (called “Legacy”), we’re already working on new songs, hopefully to get an EP out by the end of the year.
Are you touring now? When/where?
We’re playing shows all over Israel, but it’s a small country so you can’t really call it touring.
But hey – if you read this – BOOK US!
What can people expect at your live gigs?
Expect to have a good time man, if you’re a mosher, a crowd surfer or a fan of dancing breakdown dude, you’ll enjoy our show.
