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?
Musically we are following the same tracks as before. There already was a dim vision of concept for the second album at the time of first album “Triumph ov Chaos”, and it was just evolving since. Compared to the debut album, this one is more complex and we are maximally satisfied with the result. Album contains ten tracks including two intros in total time 46min.
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
The album was recorded in Poprad in Martin Barla's private studio, who took care of the recording, mixing and mastering. Even before we started recording we knew we wanted to focus more on the individual instruments themselves as well as on the subsequent mixing and mastering process. Overall, we did not want to rush anything and we preferred to have enough time for everything so we could be 100% satisfied with the result, and I think we succeeded. The recording was divided into several parts, with long downtimes between them. We devoted more time to preparations before entering the studio, and considerably more time to post-process or mixing and mastering, we focused more on the details and final arrangements.
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?
The basic idea of the whole album is the experience of death, which touches us and what happens after. Death of the existence altogether. Also, the cover is a kind of personification of it. “Utter Coldness” zone of complete coldness is a state in close connection with the depiction of an ancient Greek practice. It is a spiritual journey to the underworld, darkness and the deepest subconsciousness, where the possibility of conversation with the dead is provided through this journey. To achieve this, it is necessary to suppress all emotions and get into a state of “utter coldness”.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
The album has been released digitally on Spotify and Bandcamp and we also have pressed out physical CD as 4-panel matte digipack with 12-page booklet and artwork by Néstor Avalos.
