On strange rumors about the band…….”I guess there’s always rumors but nothing
that really sticks out, but one thing about our vocalist is that a couple of years after Téras there was a rumor going on in our hometown that Chris had left the band, to to study, to
become a priest actually and this was this was a little peculiar for us it all it even got into the local magazine and what he did was he said he had studied the theology at the University just because of interest you know but that turned into that he was converting to Christianity and turning becoming a priest so that was a kind of a weird”.
