How would you describe your band for those who don’t know you?
When did you form as a group?
Me (Jone) and Gab started talking about forming a band during fall 2006. At that time Gab had started playing with Tommy in another band, which they continued with for a year. After that me and Gab decided to start the band and took Tommy on bass and found Tuomas to play the drums. Pepe joined spring 2008, after answering an add on muusikoiden.net where we were looking for a second guitarist.
