Care to introduce yourself to our readers?

We are a 4-piece heavy rock band from Quebec City, we have been active since 2011. During this time, we have recorded 2 full-length albums and 2 EP’s.

Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.

Our music is influenced by the music we grew up on. 90’s rock, 80’s metal and 70’s classic and prog rock. Regarding our writing style, it is riff-oriented music but with a strong emphasis on melody. We love groovy and heavy riffs which can be heard a lot in Stoner and 70’s rock.

How have you been keeping creative during the Pandemic?

Because of the pandemic, it’s hard to practice and jam, but we still share ideas and songs to work on so we can keep the creative sparks lit. We are in the process of writing the next album. Otherwise, we still found the time to record and release an EP called, Sandveiss Bloody Sandveiss, A Tribute to Black Sabbath. Two songs were recorded live in the studio and two were acoustic renditions, recorded in our home studios.

And most recently, we had the opportunity to record a live session of Saboteur, our last album. It was filmed with an artistic flavor, it will be presented as a kind of an old-school home video. It will premiere on April 21st, tickets are available right now on

If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?

The Masquerade, it’s a longer song, but it reflects all the facets of our musical personality.
