Brian: i think it was getting huge for a while, but lately its been dying off, and i think we need to get it up and running again

LocalZine: What is the best/worst show you have ever played?
Brian: i think the best show weve played was probably our show with Hatework, there a pretty big "gorecore" band from out here and we opened for them so it was great. Our worst show would prbably have to be our first show, everyone seemed to like us but we played horrible, we messed up on every single song we played.

LocalZine: If you could play with ANY band, past or present, who would it be?
Brian: well i would have to say i wish i could have played a show with a Walls of Jericho, local band from detroit, that got pretty big.
