On the making of the new album, PASCAL LANQUETIN (musical composition and lead guitarist) states, “I always try to do better than before, I want to push the melodic side to the extreme without forgetting the energy of metal! My only goal is to always have fun by composing and playing guitar, and if at the same time we can give and share this pleasure to those who listen to our music, that’s our greatest reward!”
