The band is inspired by the bands they listened to when they were young, like Life of Agony, Down and Alice in Chains. But also newer acts such as Red Fang, Mastodon and Kowloon Walled City are inspirations.
The lyrical universe circle around the desperation and frustration of poverty, drug addiction, death, the degradation of the climate, war, religion/spirituality, mysticism and the natural elements that surround us.
A special driving force is the fear of becoming the generation who will witness the demise of the planet.
