The personality and intensity of their composi­tions and the notable care since the whole composing confec­tions to the final sound production result, indicates that these guys got dexterity and refinement to become memorable.

The band was formed in 2000 in Rio de Janeiro by bass­ist Gui Farizeli, guitarist Leo Graterol, guitarist Fil Buc and the vocalist Alex Melch, who shaped the sonority over their multi-influenced composions. Some time later, the experienced drummer Victor Vön Draxeler has filled in the band's line up.

After several years experiencing the independent music sce­nario, the band wrote a number of songs enough to launch two or more albums. All this repertoire was performed around the stages of the most classic clubs of the independent scene in town, such as Ballroom, Garage, Kachanga, Néctar, Festi­val Sub Alternativo, Lonas Culturais, Rio Rock & Blues Club, Odisséia Theater and others.
