This Cracow-based extraordinary band is escaping the traditional metal cliches in an unconventional way very peculiarly mixing the extreme and modern art, treading upon the “electronic” heels of European trends. Its well-thought-out cybernetic music based on the ideas, which combine the concepts of Matrix and Armageddon, is very well received by fans and also gets superb media recognition. The material from the newest album “Costumes Of Technocracy” marked by a cult symbol of the Syndicate makes a perfect effect at live performances.
