John usually writes the guitar riffs and we all add to them after that.

GC: Pick one of your latest song and talk about everything from writing it, meanings, the challenges of recording it?

We have a new song that isn't finished yet and we're still coming up with all the parts. It's been hard writing the song and a long process. The song lyrics are about a friend that lies and never lets himself be himself. Recording it shouldn't be too big of a challenge.

Delivering good songs that people want to hear. Being a good live band. With raw talent.

I like Nirvana, and all of their songs. They're the best rock band and they set new standards.

GC: What was the hardest song to write and why?

All our songs are hard to write. But it's not too hard, we just have to think of the write mix of different parts.

GC: What do you think of the current gothic/ EBM/ Industrial/ noise/ synthpop etc scence today?

GC: What is the hardest thing about being in a band for this genre?

You have to be new and write stuff no one has heard or would expect. People are jaded in this scene and like new things. So we have to keep it fresh.

Our band is a 3-piece hardcore/grind/metal band from Virginia. We love to play music and love what we do. We all want to be doing this for a living and nothing else. It's all in our hearts.
