1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that? 

The band name came from the black clouds that always above the Kirkuk city from burning the fuel.

2. Why did you want to play this genre? 

Because it talks about real problems, we feel much closer to its lyrics and the way the music is presented; heavy and loud, we see it be the best way to get our message heard
