When and how was your band created?

What kind of music / What artists do you currently listen?

your life, the BEST song? Why?

What is your opnion, as a musician, regarding internet?
Well, we have nothing but good to say about internet. You can find so much valuable stuff from the net. It’s amazing and we are not even talking about the pirate stuff here, but a big bonus is that those Big Five haven’t get it.
What are your actual and future projects?
The search of the perfect recording goes on.
