So we are finally here. This album has been a nearly two years journey since its start. And I am extremely proud of the evolution it took and the way it turned out to be. It was a real learning experience for me, and I find myself more mature and confident with this one. This album just started out as being a reaction to the previous one at the writing stage. But I think it became much more than that. One big difference with its predecessor is the fact that I was able to gather talents from my friends and people around me to contribute to something bigger. I am very honored to have had Gernot Fritze do the mastering job; I'm very satisfied with the punchy yet still organic sound, David Jara arrange and record a full string section for one of the songs; that is a big contribution, Ismo Heikkinen narrate the finnish section with such a deep voice, Santtu Klemettilä help me write and embellish the finnish section; Sebastian Löbbers help me write the German lyrics; and last but not least, my very good friend Alaric Déléris help me with all the english lyrics. I would also like to thank everyone who has given any kind of feedback, advice or support during the process of making that album. Ultimately, every contribution has been greatly appreciated.
I hope you will enjoy this release for a while, because as far as future goes, I don't have any defined plans. So I don't know when I'll be releasing more.
All the best.
