The band has also played with bands of international caliber and cult, like thrashers Jakem (Costa Rica), Florida Death/Hardcore Forty Winters (U.S.), and former Occult, Legion of the Damned (Netherlands). In early 2016, the band recorded and launched their single, “Nitrogenesis”, for which they’ve also made their first official music video, launched in Hard Rock Café. As of 2017, they began work on their first LP with JCS Studios, and work from the band’s current bassist, Jesus Arauz, who filled in the steps of Sorin Cig after he left the band.
