Xenon: We are always watching them as sinners, we're now dealing together to bring them to justice at any moment we can.

■ What do you think of your brother band NETH PRIERE CAIN?

Xenon: They’re a good opponent that are to be defeated sooner or later.

■ A Split-cd was released immediately after the start. Which of the 4 tracks are yours?

Xenon: Track 3, 「ill fame」has an aggressive finish that symbolizes us as i.D.A. And Track 4 「Break free」is in contrast to 「ill fame」, a song with a message of seeking freedom.

Xenon: We paid close attention to every detail to make sure that it would never leave the mind of those who heard it.
