All the lyrics for the album were written by french man Aurélien Fouet-Barak who also sang guest vocals on a track on the album,,the topic for the lyrics was world politics,ww2/world corruption.

Who created the logo of the band, and who took care of the graphics and the website? What about you and social networks? Do you consider these things important?

At the moment we have a label from france interested in releasing the album for us,its still early days so thats all we can say at the moment

We love a lot of oldschool deathmetal bands, anything from the early 90's.

Yea, we have some good feedback so far, we have just released our album and are no promoting it online.

At the moment there are some new songs written for a new album,,this one will have more of a blackmetal influence and the new stuff is starting to také shape
