What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today? My name is Mark Arruda and I'm the vocalist for the band, Aquila. Thank you for having me. I was always into metal in my early teens, but it wasn't until I bought Death- The Sound of Perseverance cd that I wanted to be in a metal band. I bought a guitar and started learning it, but being a vocalist was my calling in music. If it wasn't for music I would probably have a lot more spare time. My life is pretty busy with work and family nowadays.
