“This album represents a new level for the band. It was written in a different way than the previous albums, in a more natural way. Santi and I usually write all the instrumental parts, and as we were in a difficult time for personal reasons, we just let the riffs flow, not trying to sound like A or B, but more open minded and free to express ourselves in some kind of way. The lyrics follow the same pattern, they are personal to our vocalist Andrew who has written all of them.” - states guitarist Sebas Silvera.
The album was recorded over the summer of 2018 at Axtudio in Barcelona, where the band recorded their first album Conflict. “Oscar, the owner of the studio, was also our producer on this album. He has a really good experience recording metal albums (for example, he recorded the last Crisix’s albums) and he helped us a lot on this one ‘opening the doors’ to new kinds of compositions and sounds. We know we didn’t create anything new, but it was definitely a new way of writing our album and also a challenge we did enjoy going through.”
