Piotr Grudziński: All our plans and hopes that we have had in this demo have worked out 100 or even 150%.
Firstly, we could show our music to a greater number of people. The response was basically immediate and the opinions outgrew our most dire expectations. Secondly, it turned out that we have managed to make a few labels, both in Poland and abroad, interested in our music. Thirdly, I think it was a great gift for the people who came to our concert in "Kopalnia" in Warsaw. For me, it seems to be quite a promising start. May it continue to be this way

Piotr Kozieradzki: For me, our demo brings to mind Jacek's continuous postponing of the recording sessions. :-)) That's the worst memory I have of these sessions. As far as the recording itself is concerned, I'm satisfied with it 70%, which is not a great achievement. It is so, because at the beginning it was meant to be music for fun, something that we played for ourselves. After a while however, it turned out to be our first demo.
I'm a little cross with myself. I didn't play in 100% thinking that this would just be for our own use. I didn't apply myself properly to recording drums, but I promise that the future recordings will look different. :-))))

Mariusz Duda: It was a test. A check if our music provokes any response. And we've had a response. Quite positive. It was an extreme delight to hand it to the people at the concert. I hope we'll be able to spring such surprises more often.
