Can you say a few words about your band?
We’re a post-metal/doom band from Quebec city. We focus on dark atmospheres and punctuated heavy riffs while trying to keep a melodic approach to our compositions. Our influences are, but not limited to, Tool, Deftones, Alice In Chains, Elder, Isis, Cult Of luna, etc.

What was the biggest challenge for the band last year?
Putting out our latest album independently was definitely a big challenge. Doing everything ourselves could be tiring, but we’re at a point now where we’re starting to book shows and the fun part begins.

What can you be most proud of so far?
Playing a couple of festivals was a highlight. In general, all the shows we’ve put on with great bands have been really fun. We’re also proud of all the albums we’ve made so far.

What was your biggest regret?
Not being able to play more gigs because of the pandemic. It was also difficult to create music as a band because we were in different cities at the time.

What was the best concert/tour last year and why?
We didn’t tour last year unfortunately as we were preparing our new album. As far as the gigs we saw together, Lamb of God and Céleste were great and Dying Fetus along with Frozen Soul and Undeath were dope.

What was the biggest surprise on the music scene for you?
De Mal En Pire popped out of seemingly nowhere with a killer album.

What is currently in your heavy musical rotation?
Mastodon, Conan, Knocked Loose, Alice In Chains, Fleshwater, Elder, Boy Harsher, Molchat Doma.

Can you say something more about the music scene in Quebec?
The metal scene is pretty small, but the people invested in it love to support it a lot.

Where can we see you live this year (concerts/tours)?
We plan on playing around Quebec a whole lot!

What are your plans for the future as a band?
We’re already making new music and we would like to tour outside of Canada also.

How can people best support your band?
Following us on our socials is free and helps a lot. Also, probably our Bandcamp. Shirts are coming soon and you can find our music there.

Do you have any message for your listeners?
Thanks for the support and hopefully we catch you at a gig soon!
