The band plays a pulse-pumpin’ music completed with the lead singer; Tibor Kiss’s (singer, song writer, painter, guitarist) meaningful and richly visualized lyrics. When you listen to them, you can see paintings that come from the most hidden part of your mind. Virtually, you could paint the songs. Though their concerts are electrifying bursts of energy, they do it with ease and swagger, all the while involving you. Tibor Kiss has an unmistakable, emotional and sexy voice, he can lead you to your deepest emotions, only so that from there Livius Varga (co-writer, singer, percussion) can elevate you to ecstasy with his charismatic and explosive energy and rebellious songs.
