The band comments: ‘After the recordings of our seventh album ‘Eternal Silence’, which took place back in 2004 the band decided to take a long pause because we felt that we were losing our musical identity. In 2015, we felt the need to write music again. We never stopped listening to our favorite albums — simple atmospheric doom death metal music since our formative years — so this is how ‘Aegean Sorrow’ was created. It is a mix taken from our first demos and our first four albums back in the ’90s, but with a modern sound. It is exactly what we love to hear, first of all, as fans. No trends, just pure feelings and music. ‘Aegean Sorrow’ is the music we have dreamed of since we were teenagers. Waves of emotions flow over and over; it is a magical journey into the depth of our soul.’
