RMN: Where are you from and what’s the origin of your band name?
SOBER-TRUTH: „We all come from the area Cologne/Bonn in Nordrhein-Westfalen. Our band name arises from a multiplicity of ideas and this one suits the best to us and our music. We from Sober Truth want to inspire You with substantial „old school neo thrash metal“, peppered with a great deal of modern elements! Our base ingredients are massive guitar riffs, razor sharp bass lines and a dynamic song construction. With this mixture we built our own little level in the hard-fought Underground.“
