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 happy you with the final release?
Our new album is a varying journey down through aggressive and dark metal passages and into beautiful melodic atmospheres and back to darkness again. We did put a lot of effort in it and we are quite happy with the result.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sound like anything we might have heard before?
We don't have a definitive genre, the closest description would be ”Atmospheric Dark Metal”. We have previously been compared to bands such as Moonsorrow, Burzum, Bathory or Throes of Dawn, but we believe we stand on our own ground.
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
Drums were recorded on one of the largest studios in Finland, Soundstation in Magnusborg. All the other material was recorded on a studio we build during the recording session, Saarni Studio. The album took nearly 3 years to finish.
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?
Basically the whole album is about a journey and the cover art represents a crucial part of that journey. The journey and the whole album has lot's of metaphorical interpretations, which the listener can make on their own.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
We hope that every potential fan is able to hear our music.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
The first press is on a CD. Cassette and Vinyl will come out later when the time is right.
Where and how will you promote this new release?
On live shows and the internet.
