When I decided to form the band, I was inspired by Cryptic Slaugther from California, and chose their first demo name, to be the name of the band.Our main influences besides Crypitic Slaugther, are Accused, Acid Reign, Possessed and PPC.
Which things, do you think, a Band should sacrifice in order to succeed? Have you ever sacrificed anything in your life for a better future of your Band?
I think for a band to be successful, musicians need to be in perfect harmony, and love what they are doing !!! doing why you love it, even if it’s not successful, playing because you love it is rewarding, and that represents the true spirit of Heavy Metal.
