We'd like to thank all of the bands that we had the pleasure to play and have fun with as well as the organizers who did an exceptional job at making everyone feel comfortable and at ensuring that everything runs smoothly.
Check out these two reviews for the two-day event:

We have released a new lyric video for the song INSIDIOUS DEPRAVITY from our latest album! It is one of the fastest and most hard-hitting songs on EPITOME. The lyrics are revolving around struggles against seclusion and self-loathing and how you fail to overcome them.

Hello folks, we have promised you some news and here it goes:
WE WILL PLAY SHANGHAI, CHINA ON 24th MARCH 2017!
You might have noticed there is a time gap between our January shows and the ones following after. The reason being, that our singer Daniel will be working in Shanghai starting February until April 2017, therefore no shows are possible in this time. So we just seized this opportunity and will pay him a visit while a playing a show together with Shanghai-based Death Metal band Extinction at Inferno's Shanghai! We are very stoked to have a show that far away and will make sure to deliver Munich-made desolation to all Shanghai metalheads!
Also we will be hanging around and spread German seriousness to the Chinese people. Eating lots of food and drinking some stuff. Looking foward to this very much!
