The idea of starting a band first came up in the summer of 2014, when Remy and Martijn were planning to record some vocals for a drum and bass track. When they were jamming to Metal on Remy’s guitar, the two instantly had the idea to make a Metal song instead. The lyrics they used had actually been written for the dnb tracks, and they wrote a new chorus together. This went so smooth that the two of them decided to write some more songs. After they had written four songs, Martijn left to live in Australia for a year.

Meanwhile, Remy kept himself busy with writing new songs for the band-to-be. Around the same time, he got asked by another Metal band from Lelystad to play some samples for them. This is how he met Wilmar, the bass player of the band. Wilmar was just as enthusiastic about the music Martijn and Remy had been working on, so they decided to re-record the bass lines of the songs. The two had a very good connection and kept writing songs together.

At the same time Remy befriended the producer Mitchel, and they taught each other some production tricks. Mitchel added some samples to the previous ones and made the music sound more complete.

Now all that was still missing was a drummer. Mitchel thought of Connor right away, so he showed the other bandmembers some videos of Connor playing the drums. The band was afraid he would not like their music as Connor was drumming in several hardcore bands. Nevertheless, they showed him some demos and got Connor on board.

In the end of 2015 Martijn came back from his travels and re-joined the band. The five of them jammed together to see if they all clicked, which resulted in them finishing three complete songs in just one jamming session. The decision to continue working together was made very easy after this session.

The band has finished recording three songs for their upcoming EP and is ready to get out there and show the world what they are made off!
