"The lyrics revolves around issues we find in society today. A looming concern that doesn’t let go, which sooner or later will evolve into bona fide anxiety and despair for what the future might hold. The lyrics deal with subjects such as the climate crisis, the increasing wealth gap, a failing capitalistic system, and our passive attitude towards it all.

On this record we wanted to explore the diversity in the riffs. We worked on utilizing the different parts in different ways, instead of cramming shitloads of ideas into one song. We've been focusing more on the dynamics, not only on each track, but also of the album as a whole. That's also why we chose to work with Øyvind Røsrud Gundersen (technician/producer) and Magnus Lindberg (mix) - who understood our vision, brought out the best of us, and was a perfect match for the sound we were going for."
