about

As you may know, this is my first official full-length (Scattered Fragments doesn't count, it's just a compilation) and it's been a looong time coming. This album became a concept in February 2009, when I first stepped foot on Belgian soil and became rather obsessed with the First World War. Spending a week in Ypres, a town bursting with a history of pain and struggle, was probably the most life-changing experience of my 18 years here. Nothing has ever moved me quite so much as standing among the graves of countless heroes, men with families and lives ahead of them, who gave it all for their countries and were buried nameless. I can recall hearing nothing and feeling the most overwhelming sense of loneliness and despair. I had to hold back tears in a few graveyards, I must have looked quite the fool :P

Ypres is to thank for this album. It moved to an extent that I scrapped my last project, Sins of the Watchmen, to focus on something far more meaningful and important. I hoped that with this project, I could create something that would make you think. It is for this reason that my music is rather repeatative and long. I don't want you to sit there and focus on it, I want you to space out and consider life, the universe, or maybe even the Great War.

So now that that's out of the way, I want to give huge love to my Greek brother Jason Karavokiris, for designing all of the beautiful artwork for this album. Make sure you take the time to marvel at all of the pieces included in this download. And if you feel like giving him some much-deserved appreciation, head on over to
