What does your band name mean?
Well, it just started to be exactly the opposite of what it tells you about because at the time it was really a side project, but for now it just means exactly what it means. Not a side project.
What genre do you consider yourself? Why?
I think you can call it metal because heavy guitar riffs and strong drum rythms always comes up in my tracks, but, with all the electronic stuff that i mix in I think I’ll just leave the “labeling” to the ones who listen.
What drew you to music?
I don´t know. Guess it came with the package by the time i was born. Since i was a kid music had “that” effect on me… Can´t really explain.
What are some of your most influential bands? Why?
I could name some bands that I like most but I guess they all influenced me one way or another. It’s all about the the music you know. You can have bands that you love that make shitty tracks, and shitty bands that you don’t like that some way make a great track/s… I guess my influence is good music, or music that I like and someway “touches” me.
