    3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

Jade is also known as the Emerald stone and it has both physical and spiritual healing powers,which is something that we wish to do with our music.

Our best shows so far were at Metal Female Voices Fest in Belgium where we shared the stage with Therion,Leave's Eyes,Sirenia and many more,and our 2 shows supporting Epica which were our first shows ever in Greece.Our shows are full of emotion and energy since the stage is like a 2nd home to us all.People respond with enthusiasm to our call for sing alongs and we 'dress" our shows with special light and video effects.Come see us!=-)

To be honest when it comes to composing we don't have a specific influence. We play what comes from within and we all listen to so many different things that it would be impossible to write them down now.
Personally I love The Gathering,Katatonia,Wovenhand,Iron Maiden,Dio and many more!
