Let's start at the beginning then. When did the band form?

 -It's honestly been so long that I had to reach out to Mark to find out haha!  It was 2017 that we found our first round of members, and actually started to become a band.

Who's in the band?

- We have Mark on keys and male vocals, Joe on guitar, Drew on bass, Mikey on drums, and me Noreen on lyrics and female vocals.

Were any of you in bands before? 

- And The Weak Lie Frail, One Hit Kill, Orwellian, and Torso Murder are a few of Mark’s previous bands. Khai and All In for Joe. She’s In Pain, Tilt 360 and Iron Brigade for Andrew.

How would YOU describe your sound?

-We are all influenced by different types of Metal, so we just pretty much put them all together haha!  I typically say Black/Death/Melodic Metal.

What are your musical influences?

-Oh so many haha!!!  I guess the first artists that got me interested in singing was TLC and Celine Dion.  When Evanescence came out I was mesmerized haha!  I found my favorite genre Symphonic Metal while searching for other bands like them.  That's when I found Within Temptation, Nightwish, Xandria, Eluveitie, and fell in love with Epica!  I'm not only influenced by these powerful ladies as a vocalist, but also the bands writing abilities, and lyrics.  Mark, Tuomas, and Chrigel are musical and lyrical geniuses.  I feel every note and word.  An absolutely breathtaking experience.

What have been up to lately? any new stuff to delight our ears?

-Oh yes!  We are working on quite a bit of new stuff at this time.  I've been going through a lot of things in my personal life, and write to process my thoughts and feelings.  I have two new songs that we still need to put music too, but I have the vocal pattern in my head already haha!  Mark got me some new equipment to help with practice and live sound production.  Now if only the weather could pick a season, so my sinuses could settle down would be great haha!  In the meantime just working on my vocal strength, techniques, and confidence.  That's a hard one for me though haha!

How about live dates? What have you been doing and what ya got planned for 2024?

 -No live shows at this time.  We are focusing on creating new stuff right now.  We are about to start recording them soon, so we hopefully are going to have our new album Art of Corruption out in the next few months.  Then yes we will have lots of live shows!

 Name something about yourselves that fans won't know

 -Hmmm something that no one knows about us.  I can only think of two things.  I drive the guys crazy, because I don't know their language when it comes to the musical parts.  Can sometimes make writing a challenge,  but they are patient with me  ;)  Usually ends up comical or in playful banter.  The other is Mikey owns a banana mask hahaha!!!

 What's the most embarrassing moment you've had?

- In my whole life, or just with the band?  I have an answer for both haha!  I'm not one that gets embarrassed easily.  I will gladly make an a** out of myself if it brings a smile to someone's face.  I will share the more appropriate one.  I was in Junior High I do believe.  It was years since I last went bowling at that time.  My ball got stuck, and my friends mom jokingly told me to run after it and push it.  Well I didn't know it was extremely slippery and I did as I was told.  Did a flip in the air and landed on my tailbone hard!  I contribute that day to why I have no butt hahaha!!!!

Do you have any superstitions? Any things you do before a show?

- No superstitions for the show, but I do knock on wood when you don't want something to come true when I or someone says something haha!   Things I do before a show is usually work haha!  I will make sure I play my strong female vocalists in my car, so I can practice as much as possible, try to watch what I eat, be very careful with what I drink, and the most important is the facial and vocal warm ups.

Are there any musicians or bands you'd love to work with?

- Pretty much all the ones I mentioned as my influences.  That would be amazing to just talk to them let alone collaborate!  From what I have seen in behind the scenes, interviews,  and read about personal experiences with them, I think any interaction would be life changing andat times pretty hilarious haha!!!  Now locally it would be Storms Within and Animus.  Those ladies have such stage presence, vocal talent, and the bands are just all around amazing.

Any final thoughts?

-Not really thoughts.  I just want to say thank you for reaching out to us, Check out our 2 singles from our new album Unraveling Sanity and Red Hot(Motley Crue cover) available on all platforms,  and I want to apologize for being wordy.  I am a writer though, so maybe that just comes with the territory
