At that point they chose the name BLATOIDEA, inspired by the latin word indicating the name of the species in which cockroaches are included to. The name is a metaphore to nowadays society. Doesn't matter how much you struggle to get a better position into the system, how many wars we win or we lose, we are all on the same level, same race, same species, all nothing but cockroaches to the eyes of who controls the entire thing and in the same way they can get rid of all of us.
They recorded their first demo "start an Infection" containing 8 tracks, which has been made public only by the web. Few months after, Fabrizio (Drums) joins the band by which who they can set up their first tour in Italy. Afterwards the three original members decide to move in London where after few mounths later luke (Drums) joins the band who gets the band back playing on stages.
