After splitting up with InProgress I took a little break just to contemplate my musical direction. I really had the need to go more metal and go to a more song orientated direction. So when I stumbled over the guys from "Cradle In Echo" I right away had a very strong vibe.
We started working on a lot of new material. And half a year later we could do our first gig. Our problem was than, we only had about 2 two song ready for performance by than. We anyhow agreed to play. Dennis and I wrote some temporary lyrics to one song we nearly had finished, we picked one cover song and up we went. It was quite a success and had some fun.
After a while the new songs started piling up and we started to record 2 songs for promotional purpose: "Livewire" and "Emotionally Drained".
After we finished all the basics tracks - only vocals and solo guitar where missing - we had some computer crashes and we to first sort that before we where able to go any further.
Around that time Lajos regretfully laid down his drumsticks and we where out of a drummer. Though this was a big loss, we didn't gave up and started auditions. Next to the auditions I contacted a drummer I worked with in InProgress. Already during the first rehearsal we already felt complete again, so we welcomed Fons as our new drummer.
Now its rehearsing and writing. Dennis, Jan. Fons and I are eager to play live as soon as possible.
