After the Demo Nightmares (2000) release, Hecatombe got together and started to work pretty hard to develop its musical identity.

We take many influences, from a lot and a sort of bands. The Hecatombe has a great advantage on this subject, that we are musically wide open minded, which gives us great results writing our songs. We also think that what influences us ain't only other bands/musicians, but things and facts that occurs each day to each one of us.
