He began his works in music in early 2016 after talking to two guitarist friends who wanted to form a band, first was Leandro Maciel (who rest in peace) who encouraged him to play the drums and buy the instrument and D'antas who formed together Facing Fear. Leandro Maciel would be part of the band, but died before the first rehearsal. Vall and D'antas began to compose and rehearse the songs of the EP Lutaremos Pelo Metal still in the first semester of 2016.
