What was in 1998 is no more due to line-up changes and people following their respective paths. However, the bands vision for a progressive sound and the desire to play for people never changed. In recent years the band has become a high energy power rock trio that is on a never ending mission to gain new fans and give them something they have never seen before.

The band consists of three guys who work hard, live and love to create and grow through music. They live for sharing this experience with other people through live shows that always deliver.
