2.In July you had released your first album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music? The concept of the lyrical topics on Sympathy for disease is deeply inspired by the testimony written by a critical patient, very important for Sigmund Freud’s investigations and diagnostics. The patient was Daniel Paul Schreber, a German man who suffered psychiatric detention. The band’s concept is designed and inspired by all people like Schreber, who have psychological and psychiatric disorders. We are thinking about continuing with these topics for the next album, but that we will give news at the time
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Diagnosis'? “Diagnosis” means the art of identifying a disease or illness. The word “diagnosis” has a great power.
