The union of different musical genres, post-grunge, metal, punk and hard rock, ironically expressed by the word Blend Rock, is accompanied by a musical discourse directed from the opposition of the clarity of the piano and the scratch of the guitars, from the juxtaposition of riffs and chords in dissonance and from the unmistakable color of the voice that unites opposites within itself in the crossover melodic lines with realistic lyrics.
The sound system, enhanced by frequent dynamic and rhythmic changes, leads along a tortuous path of feelings and confessions, directing the listener to new and varied atmospheres in each track.
The first work “Venus EP”, released on September 2014 for Pirames International, expresses the union of post-grunge, punk, metal and rock and overwhelms with particular and intense sound since the first listening.
