SOCIAL MEDIA AND INTERNET
Vince would like to thank:
God. Vince would like to thank God, the only one he judges being his equal. Lesser beings like his band mates do not really matter. He wouldn't be thankful at all but he's got to fill this blank slate so he will speak as a third person and thank only God...for creating himself of course. Oh yeah! And his own skull for not rupturing under the expansion of his head!
Étienne would like to thank:
Sandy, my wife, and all my children for being supportive of this project. Vince Mercier for always believing in the project and taking everything I threw at him! Martin Bersier-Carpentier for keeping his spirit while I was criticising every mix he gave me! Nicolas Martel for joining in and giving his nice pieces of drumming! Rémi Ouellette for his technical support and Jérôme Parent for allowing us to practice at his place! Finally, Michel Stiakakis for his pearls of wisdom on the music industry and his feedback on the album.
All the selected people who did the first listening of the album, because their opinion mean something to me: Robert Dansereau, Érik Flynn, Paul Gaudet, Jean-François Laferté, Jean-François Quessy, Jocelyn Lafond, Rémi Ouellet, Carla Ricardo, Martinho Torres and Daniel Vachon.
Thanks to everybody else who believed I could do it someday!
Martin would like to thank:
The members of the band for their time and efforts spent in the making of the album, Andrea Savard for the freedom of doing his music and friends and family for their support!
Nicolas would like to thank:
My family and my roommates who endured the drum practices for many years before turning it into an album. Special thanks to my father who supported me when I purchased my first drum kit and my godfather for transmitting to me music in my blood! Martin who is the musician with whom I mostly grown since I started drumming. Étienne and Vince for recruiting me in the band. Jerome Parent who give us the chance to practice in his home. Finally, thanks to all of you who believe in our project. We need you to continue growing in numbers!
A SPECIAL THANKS TO: Érik Flynn from RadioQuebec.biz
who gives us the chance to be heard all over the world in the great metal family!
*Without Fate members use exclusively their own material! No sponsors!
In memory of my friends Cristian Langevin (46), who left us before playing some keyboards on the album and Céline Bellemare (30), who simply loved life and music. Both of you will be dearly missed and yes, they left us too soon.
