How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
We play atmospheric doom\death metal strongly influenced by such bands as My Dying Bride, Katatonia, Novembre, Forest Stream and others... We try to create dark, gloomy and sick music expressing our own vision...

We don't insist on buying our CD's, everyone may easily download them from the internet.

Our releases usually got divided and different opinions from Magazines, Webzines and public
as well. We hope, it mean that our music is good enough not to make people indifferent.
