Give in more detail, some information about your lastest album ‘Beyond The Fight’ and how well it sells so far?
I think it’s a fresh old skool album, It’s aggressive and melodic at the same time, the sells are very good and we’re satisfied at the moment but, I said at the moment, we’re already in studio for a new Ep with 6 tracks,never satisfied at all…
