METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:

TIKKANEN: We had a break from each other for a couple of years due to living in different parts of Sweden. But we got together just before the Covid hit the world when I got a request on Messenger if we would be interested in doing a live stream concert to Mexico.

And we are really looking forward to that.

METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?

TIKKANEN: We have many, But I think you can hear a bit of Rainbow, Deep Purple in our Songs. But we grew up with bands like Rainbow, White Snake, Deep Purple, Thin Lizzy, Phenomena. Sweden Rock Magazine said that for Example the Song “Nightride” had reference to Rainbow and Some songs were influenced by Phenomena. But that is in the ear of the Listeners.
