Please tell us a few words about the new release, about the music on it as a whole or a few words on each track in part. How are you happy with the final release?
The music develops fluidly through the sensations we feel while we compose. Every song is connected to the concept of the album, ''Emptiness'', and we feel like the end result managed to transmit the proper emotions.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
Our music is characterized by a constant conflict between an old school black metal outburst of rage and evocative melodies dear to the epic, depressive, post/rock tradition.
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
We recorded the album in 6 months, at a friend's house.
What can you tell us about the cover artwork? Is there a link between the artwork and the lyrics? What are the topics of your lyrics?
First of all we wanted to thank Gozer Visions for the artwork and Coward Creations for the teaser and the future videos. Everything is connected to the concept of the album, the lyrics, the music, the videos and the artwork. The concept is based on mankind's connection to death time and desire. Lyrics are inspired by a deep analysis of life experiences, above all humanity's fear of time elapsing and consuming everything; and the rebirth through self-annihilation, in order to embrace death, the void and the end of suffering.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
We wanted to create something for the fans to enjoy, and to become better musicians in order to compose even better songs for the future.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
In September we will release a Hand-numbered limited edition, of 100 copies, digipack version of the album.
The digital version is available on bandcamp.
We are also planning on releasing a vinyl version.
Where and how will you promote this new release?

We've also found out some fan made youtube videos...thank you guys!!!
