Lyrics - why did you decide to sing in English... who wrote the lyrics, what topics have you choosen?
the main reason to do songs in English is the global openness that can offer, It´s the most studied language worldwide, it is the language used in business, international trade and the Internet. I´m the principal songwriter and topics are inspired by the classic death metal scene make up with the contemporary chaos, loss of
values and self destruction of society
