I believe that the internet is responsible for the dissemination of extreme speed and ease that bands have a greater chance of being seen by the world trough of social networks, but I believe that people who are used to buy the physical CDs still remain with this custom, most can not deny that nowadays everything can be solved by the internet, including acquiring the songs of their favorite band.

With the arrival of the internet, many doors opened, more bands undergrounds suffer a bit with the lack of support for entrepreneurs and owners of venues that believe in the potential of bands that play their own music.

12. Tell us some funny jokes in the past?
There was a show where we played, that after the third song all equipment in complete submission site burned, leaving only a guitar amp and bass continue playing anyway, and soon the burning guitar amp too, and continue playing, only low and battery was still funny because people kept shaking our music! Just was not good for the band that would play after we had to cancel the presentation.
