They use Japanese words that is hard to express in Heavy Rock, and have played at the same level of other artists who came to Japan.

In 2001, they played in the biggest metal festival in Japan "BEAST FEAST 2001". (Slayer, Pantera, Sepultura, and Machine Head played for the festival.)
They got mad respect for their live performance from Artists who played in the festival.
