The main idea of this band is to not be limited to one sound or genre. I'd like to play a wide variety of genres such as rock, alternative, metal, reggae, and blues including original songs and covers. I want to leave alot of room for creativity. But to narrow it down a little bit I would call it a hard rock/metal band. Of course the songs will be played and recorded accordingly.
