“Working for the perfect moment” is how Splank! still describes his work with Zombie Nation. Get the best out of every single live moment and prove it again and again in every new situation.

Since , The track Kernkraft 400 has been a popular song at NHL, soccer, rugby and basketball games, used by numerous arenas as their goal-celebration song, and many more as a motivational beat.
