We are after someone versatile, with a wide range, who can go across genres and communicate the personality of the music, add different vocal attitudes and flavours according to what the song needs. Our rhythm guitar player has been handling vocal/frontman duties since the band’s inception, but we want to have wider options in terms of vocals, use vocal harmonies live and we want a frontman that is not limited by a guitar or any other instrument.
We move mainly in Metal and Progressive circles but our music has more into it. We incorporate spy themes, some orchestrations, synth sounds, surf rock guitar sounds, some 8bit chip sounds, etc. We like and are influenced by lots of stuff including Devin Townsend, Opeth, Cynic, Everything Mike Patton – FNM, Fantomas – The Director’s Cut, Carpenter Brut, Morricone, John Barry, Henry Mancini, Fabio Frizzi, Goblin, Riz Ortolani, Westerns, James Bond Spy style soundtracks, Progressive Rock some videogame music, etc.
All these aspects are reflected in our live show which has lots of energy and an upbeat vibe. We face the audience face to face and incorporate live video, film references and other fun things into our shows.
We are constantly booking shows within the UK and have some interesting festivals coming up
