1- Hello, thanks for answering to our questions. What are you guys currently up to?
Duston Bullard: “Having a few beers, after practice, getting ready for the upcoming shows. We have been working on new material for a full-length album, and hope to be in the studio by the end of the year so far everything is going great with the new writings so we are very happy with the direction so far,


2- First off, could you make some history of the band?
Duston: ”OH MY GOD!  You don’t wanna know. Ha ha ha Or well maybe you do…Um I’ll give the shorter history. Well I have been in this band since 1997 there is a big history of line up changes over the years, I am the only original member left, I originally did back up vocals in the past, everyone left one by one for their own reasons…Ha ha ha Hell I even left a couple times and came back, but to fast forward to now when our original vocalist stepped out for good I decided to take on full vocal duties instead of trying to find someone else. Now truthfully I really didn’t want to do full time vocals but after doing it for awhile it kind of grew on me and people said that it sounds great and to keep doing what I’m doing so it’s been working out good and so I’m gonna keep it as is…So ya know…. It was what it was then it is what it is now. Things are much better now.  New shit’s coming along great, and we are having a lot of fun.”


3- How could you describe your sound?
Duston: SWEDISH /EUROPEAN DEATH/BLACK METAL a lot of people have said that is what they hear…and have gotten Deicide and Acid Witch to…Ha ha ha…so yeah.


4- What are the band’s main musical influences?

Duston: Just to name a few I love Vader, Grave, Hypocrisy, Emperor, Destroyer 666, High On Fire, God Dethroned, Deicide, and the work of Mr. ICS Vortex; Arcturus, Lamented Souls, Dimmu Borgir, his solo stuff, also Roger Waters and David Gilmour…as a vocalist. As for bass playing I’ve always idolized Cliff Burton, Steve Harris, Geezer Butler, and Gedy Lee, and Lemmy is god, they are very renowned in their sound as bass players.
Corey: I am a predominantly thrash metal drummer, but my influences are John Bonham, and Bill Ward, but I finally got myself a drum set and started listening to Lamb Of God, and Death, Messhugah, that, and many more, it’s too hard to pick favorites.
Curt: Randy Rhoads, Jason Becker, Jacky Vincent, Michael Keene, Paul Gilbert
Brad: Gart Holt, Piotr Wiwczarek, Trey Azagthoth, Jeff Waters, and Dimebag


5- How is the feedback for your new album being?
Better than we expected really…and for just a six song EP it has been getting good reviews.


6- And are your personally satisfied with the final outcome?
Yes indeed.


7- How could you describe this opus in just 3 words?
Heavy As Hell


8- How has the production process for your new release been?

Well do to some minor hang ups…the production came along pretty easy…all in all it was a fun time making it and studio atmosphere was really really cool place. I loved it there and can’t wait to go back.


9- And how do you use to work on the songwriting?
My self when writing lyrics and ideas for songs, I like to sit in my dinning room with a pot of coffee and do my thing or if it’s nice outside I sit on the deck, then when we gather for rehearsal we all throw our ideas on the table. We all have riff ideas and we put it all together so we all work together on the song structure, and if it fits it fits if not then we might save that riff for another song, a lot of times just goofing off one of us will play something and the rest of us will be like…DUDE!!! What was that!!!? And we use it, so doing things that way works better. I always hated when one person writes an entire song at home and comes to practice with it. Because ya know it’s gonna get picked about and apart then their feelings get hurt. Ha ha ha so, we work together on ideas, and we also try to have a recording device running to so we can review.


10 – Finally, what are you near-future plans?
Play as many shows as we can and make albums.


11- That’s all from our side, thanks again for taking your time to answer our questions. If you now want to add some final words; feel free to do it.
