band biography

DEREK-derek was born in 1985 in new amsterdam he developed the nickname "gothy derek" because he was a little into the occult but not much, him and his fiancee vanessa were the sole survivors of an accident in the middle of the streets of new amsterdam involving 40 people dying of unknown causes with strange marks inflicted on their flesh and many amateur videotapes claiming supernatural causes. during this time both him and his fiancee were institutionalized for psychiatric evaluation he wrote the songs revenge in vain and loss following this experience claiming it was an epic battle after years of chasing a real demon which in the end got away because it was immortal and could destroy the earth single handedly while being one of the weaker ones of its kind. he then spent a number of years in a profound state of depression in which he devolved into a man-child state of being during which time he separate from Vanessa leaving her alone in the institution, Derek is also a recent member of a cult that believes that there is a universal soul, but without a personality, making it closer to Ki (chi) or Mana, or Vrill. and that residue left behind by it from one person can control the next person to come into contact. making them act like the first, and that individuals don't have a personal soul because of of they are connected through the universal soul which radiates from everything and has Jungian collective consciousness attributed to it

J.C.- Joshua is from a family of carpenters, is half Basque, half Saami his mother was forced into marriage because she was pregnant out of wedlock, he has a mental disease in which he cannot recognize people by face and claims he doesn't know them, but will recognize them on the phone by their voice. he is very childish and has never followed through his carpentry apprenticeship instead spends his time watching harem anime and listening to weird music, his mother is in the same cult as Derek.
