What Was The Inspiration For Your Recent Album?
Several kind of inspirations:
Music just came out from us. All those songs we polish together. For lyrics and covers, main theme was Control. Songs ‘Pointless Thoughts’ and ‘Errant’ leans on that theme.

And ‘Then I Died’ is a story about feelings that you may have after you have died.
