When did the band get together, and how?

The band begin first as ‘battlescars’ but at that time it was just Saul, Luis & j in late 2010. The band didn’t get going until j. joined as Saul and Luis were looking for a vocalist and bassist. They began jamming and forming their sound but in the summer of 2011, C. Alex and Nathan joined with each taking guitar and bass positions, respectively. The first gig had been booked so till that day we worked on our songs which are all original and practiced as much as we could. The first gig that we debuted as a 5-piece was at 2011’s Frank N’Con.

How would you describe your music to someone?

A grinding dynamo of metal with strong roots in Melodic/Progressive Death Metal, Groove Metal, Black Metal and good ‘ol Heavy Metal.

Who are some of the bands that influence your music?

For each member, the list would fill a small novel. All of us in the band have very attuned tastes in the music that we listen to and that refined ear breaks out and takes a notice within our originals.

What is your most memorable gig so far?

So far, House of Rock on Feb. 3rd , 2012. We love that stage and had a few people in the crowd head banging. Participation always makes the moment.

Are you currently signed to any kind of label or management?

We are not signed nor are we managed by a third party. We have recorded mostly all our own demos but have worked with local recording studios to record our latest demo and other works.

What other bands have your members been/are in?

Saul has been in and is still in ‘Jayden’s Playground’ and had past involvements with ‘BB Gun Johnny’. Luis and Saul both were in ‘Tragica’ which was a rising band that rocked in its glory days in EP.

What other local bands would you recommend people check out?

Any and all local bands; there is some diverse music growing in the corners of EP and abroad. It is up the public to take notice of them and give them the support they need to break the cliché bounds of mainstream music and the music industry…but here is a short list:

For the brutal: Chains of Rage, Archetyped, As they Suffer, Straight Razor Suicide, Beyond the Ash, The Sixth, All that Bleeds

For the lighthearted: Sublevels, The Human Condition, Smells Like Green, Jamie Hernandez
