We have for sole guideline to consolidate our individual musical backgrounds in order to serve a common goal. For ‘Kelem’, the goal was for us to reflect musically as closely as possible our feelings at this time.
I think it’s just honest music.
The man truly and genuinely lives and breathes music.
The one issue with Australia is that it’s such a beautiful country with great people and so multi-cultural but damn hard to get anywhere as it’s long way away.
We were calumniated for the songs about the politics, but it’s not true.
People go their separate ways. Especially when you’re in your early twenties. ‘The Fruit Fallen’ was my baby, so I didn’t expect everyone in the band to plan their whole life around it.

Epic fantasy power doom metal" was the best descriptor I could come up with. It probably sounds ridiculous to most people, but at least it gives you an idea of what is in store.
We will always write the music we love, but absolutely care and need that continued support we've received.
