Folder quickly gains much consideration from all Italian (and not only) press and the Album is reviewed with highest rates everywhere! Soon comes the chance to perform outside Italy in England and Austria sharing the stage with some very good European rock acts like Funeral For A Friend (UK), Prime sth (Swe), Lullacry (Fin), Spout (Aut), Stampin' Ground (UK), Emil Bulls (Germ) etc.
Folder obtains great reactions from the audience and shows a great live potential everywhere...
