SMOKEHEADS has perfected an Alternative Metal which is both enjoyable and original. The group consists

own stage and musical past, trying out moods along the way and accumulating ever more fruitful
experiences that have brought them closer to their artistic voice.
Together they have forged a new, melodic and powerful alloy. Don’t try to find their formula. This type of
