Your music style is Thrash Metal. Which are your main influences (Favourite Artists / Bands etc.)
In our sound we are more mixture of thrash,heavy,black and speed metal incorporated with our own style. We do love early 80s to 90s metal band, which is the most important decade in metal scene. Our influences mainly like Sodom, Kreator, Forbidden, Desaster, Mercyful Fate, Coroner, Hellish Crossfire, Celtic Frost, Witchburner, Nocturnal Breed, Metal Inqusitor, Gehennah, Aura Noir, Unpure, Gospel of the Horns, Metalucifer, Sabbat, Overkill, Voivod and Toxic Holocaust.
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?
Mainly Sacrifice our spirit & soul in the band HAHAHAH. Off course Commitment, trust, time and funds are most important to keep band spirit alive!
Describe your ideal live show as a performance Band. Have you already experienced that?
As long as the audience or crowd is enjoying bang their head and energetic listen when we are playing. most of the gig or concert is ideal.
Which attributes, do you think, that a new Thrash Metal Band should have in order to gain identity and be unique?
Keep a real spirit in metal scene, great attitude and support the underground scene.
Do you believe that Digital Platforms help the new Thrash Metal Bands? Which, do you think, is the ideal way for a Band to promote its work?
There is pro and cons in the digital platforms in view. Nowadays still the best way to share and promote in music platform. The information about the band distributes faster to your brain.
Tell us a few things about the New Underground Metal Scene in Malaysia (Bands, Fanzines, Webzines, Metal Clubs etc.)
Metal scene in Malaysia is still doing well I guess, but not like in the early 90s or mid 90s in my opinion. sub-genre most in Malaysia UG more Black, Thrash, Speed and Metal punk at the moments you can see. About for the printed zines is less compare with the early days, which is most of editor zine transform to webzines I guess. There aren’t any metal clubs at the moment here, maybe in future.

Off course i know! Such my list Slaughter Priest, Crucifier, Rotting Christ, Nightbreed etc.19 or maybe 20 years ago i have good memories contacts with letters and doing trade stuffs like one of Nocturnal Vomit lineup. Recently in 6 years ago have contacts doing a trade with youngster very good underground band. band called Thorn Burial. you should check them!
