Describe Your Sound

In the early days it was influenced by the ska punk movement of the late 90’s/early 2000’s. The sound gradually became more hard rock with progressive elements. Big riffs and grooves with plenty of melody in the vocals.

Links

Formation

Martin and Paulo used to jam together when they were in highschool. When they decided to form a band they recruited Martin's friend Gareth on guitar. They eventually got Rob Sceresini on drums and started writing as a band.

Influences

In the early days we managed to somehow roll with the ska punk kids in those days, even though we weren't really ska or punk.
