We all have separate bands. One night when Omer’s band was on stage, I suddenly jumped on stage and started singing a Metallica song. After that, we talked in our midst to create a ‘Metallica‘ band. Following this speech, our group was established in July 2018.

Art is more important for us. Even if the audience doesn’t like or prefer it, we make music with art.
