It could be ridicolous, but the look is very important in this kind of music.


Tell us about the new LP “Tales of an insidious match”. Are you fully satisfied with it?
For the title, we inspired to the human’s life that it could be a challenge because the thematics of the album represent the “good” and the “bad” in life. Instead, the cover deals with a chess match because in our opinion, life is a challenge and to win against it you need positivity and heart.
