But well, I guess that is the way it should have been in order to match the huge effort all this has meant to us. This is a work of pure and genuine determination.
“It has been a long and amazing ride for us seeking to reach this point, and well, to be able to work with Waldemar took the project of the album to a whole new level. Also, Costin did a brilliant job with the artwork for the album. We’re absolutely pleased with the outcome of all this.” More...

"Hey everybody... As we already anticipated some weeks ago, it is now a fact that Charm Designer's longtime guitarist / keyboardist Carlos M. Mora, is no longer part of the crew, as he decided some time ago that he would leave the country due to his personal projects. Obviously, big changes are coming our way, our scheme will have to develop and find some new shapes in this months to come, in order to keep our hands on some projects we're already working on, and some other things that are a little bit more diffuse at the time. We are optimistic on this process to flow in a quick, productive way, so we can be able to have some news for you soon...as we really want to keep you all around.
"Of course, we have to take our time to thank Carlos for his big effort and commitment to the project since the very beginning, as we wish him the best in this new life he's just starting as well. We hope you'll be hearing from us soon and we are already counting on your support from the distance. More...
