parts and yet some melodic shredding here and there....
Work on more new material is in progress, some promising
fragments are being elaborated.
Stay tuned for more!

In January, our drummer Julian told us that he'd be no longer able

time for the band.
Both the band and he himself regret this decision, but it is the only
reasonable and viable solution.
We thank Julian for his fantastic work with us and wish him the best
for his future.
We proudly announce the Return of the Greek!
Laki a.k.a. Blitzgreek will torture the drums for us. Welcome back!
On bass guitar we also have to note a change: Due
to professional reasons, Kai, who's been living in Zurich for some
time now, leaves the band as well.

for 4 great years in L'ESTARD.

If I told you that those are the coolest tunes that I've heard on
numberonemusic web-site. This leaves me pondering this, why aren't
you signed to a major label?? Very pro-sounding. Excellent production
and performance. Whole band sounds killer. Vocals are on and interesting
melody. Get signed dudes or don't, but keep it together. You rock.
I really like your approach and style... and I am going to add you
to my playlist and check out some more of your stuff. I wish I had
more to say or some kind of constructive criticism, but your songs
are ready for the air waves.
