We are like Water. Never standing still is our artistic credo. Panta Rhei! So do we and so does our music. At times it’s frail and tender like a runlet but then again it swells into a massive, crushing stream. It knows no limits, we flood the banks and incorporate new influences we encounter on our way into our artistic vision if we see fit. Behind us the well of Progressive Thrash, it’s lies in the past, although some flotsam and jetsam still swims in our waters. Since then we absorbed the coasts of Post Rock, we burst the dams of Psychedelic, Classic and Stoner Rock and even absorbed some rills of Doom and Black Metal. And we tend to run deep. No superficial lyrics about drinking Jacks and fucking groupies for us. Quite frankly: It has been done to death. And speaking of death: We sail around the conformist metal clichés of Satan, war, fire, death and noble viking warriors. We pick our subjects amongst the eternal questions hunting mankind and philosophy and combine them to ambitious lyrical concepts. We call it «Metal without borders», but you can call it whatever you like, we don’t care, because it is our claim that the music and the energy of our live shows speak for themselves. Dive on in and let us drag and drown you within our sound.
