2.Who and/or what inspires you to create?
We do get a lot of different inspirations. We are 4 people with 4 completely different
backgrounds, Carla who is the main lyricist/songwriter gets her inspiration from bands like the
Prodigy, Korn and the list goes on.
SO. How would you describe your sound?
E. Unique in many ways, We might have a label over our head as a gothic/industrial band but we
truly believe that in the album you can hear everything in a very dark mix, we believe this album
have something to say to pure classic metalheads, to Nu metalheads, black and the list can go
on, we didn’t let that label limit us.
At the end of the day we made an album that we are happy to play on repeat in the car while we
are traveling everywhere
SO. What is your creative process like?
E. Carla she is the main writer, we love her way of work… she once said “guys I need a break from
social media, don’t worry, I will be back in 10 days…” 10 days later she came back with the next
The way she writing is in a simple electro dark theme, with midi guitars and drums, she makes a
song as it is in her head, then Trevor add his bass over the original, I do the guitaring Chris does
his drums and boom, the pure magic done, all it left from the original I the keyboard!
The hardest bit to that is to stick to the original idea which we always aim to
SO. What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?

Without them we wouldn’t ever be here and their support is the most appreciated!
SO. What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?

families and kids.

such a persona?
SO. What is the best advice you’ve been given?
