This is a Metalcore band from Germany and they're probably my favorite band the whole world for almost 3 years now, however people don't know about them which is kinda sad cause they're so good...with songs like Smile, Sky, Snowblind, New Autumn Light, Wolves In The Walls, Naked City, The Final Round, etc. I just feel like you can't deny them...and yet they're denied. All four albums they released are masterpieces...try them out and you won't regret it
