Hello friends,

The working title for this track was “Betrayal” and if you´re familiar with the book “Fahrenheit 451” than you probably know the part in which the main character got home and discovered that he´s been betrayed by the very person he considered to be his only family.

I´ve been thinking about the actual emotion that this kind of situation evokes: I guess everyone experienced a betrayal in one way of another and – even if the case was much less significant – it was still hurtful, right? Seems like even the music followed that train of thought, so it came out as rather diverse and – while the lyrics deal with the emotional aspect of the event – the music swings from “regret” – state to the flat out “vengeful”.

Another interesting detail is how the video editor captured this mood: the characters on the screen steadily change their appearance from “normal” to “monsters”… I never told him my thoughts behind this particular story, so it was kind of surprising to watch for the first time, as it´s uncanny how the video artist sensed the atmosphere/feeling of the track by listening to music and reading the lyrics

Stay Safe and Rock On!
