Thanks for having us! I m the singer of the Alternative metal band INK, we formed long ago and we released two albums Diary and Loom. We are realising

i read almost everything so i cant choose.

We have a common taste so i think there is no song that they will hate.
 Our new album is full of covers! I wonder if we ll have another one soon!
