How did you all meet & start as a band?
Vulpes and Kovmissioner we in a band together that split up so we formed a black metal cult...Vulpes asked Malakoff to play drums and he said yes...then Apeira wanted to try her hand at guitar in a band...(shes also a keyboardist and plays keys on our upcoming demo). Then Komiti came onto the bass ...and here we are!
So you write as a band or is there a main songwriter?
We all have our role. Apeira and Kovmissioner usually come up with the guitar first...then Malakoff and Komiti put the drums and bass en Vulpes writes the lyrics and fits them into the song.
Tell us about your jam space?
It is called the Church of Destruction and its in a basement with several rooms. Mostly metal bands jam there. We're all family.
[We jam] once a week as a couple of us are quite busy with other bands...life..ect.
Why are you in this band?
To get our message out...so people like us don't feel alone..and also so I don't kill anyone. It's a good vent outlet.
What can audiences expect from your live show?
Shock most likely.
