DS: Actually, we didn’t think too much about the different of genre. We just wanted to play music that we like or maybe because of Diesear influenced a lot by In Flames. That is why a lot of fans thought our first album is based on Melodic Death Metal with some Metalcore elements.
Then we were tired about it soon and wanted to increase more of techniques and melodies. Our musical style evolved to like “Ashes of the Dawn” this album which are the first “Pure Melodic Death Metal” album in our country “Taiwan”.
