In their imaginary world, the listener can experience the turbulent times we live in, full of injustice, hate, war, crime, racism, and draw parallels to the tragedies that hit Atlantis and Ancient Athens.
The band’s sound is greatly influenced by all time classic movies and music greats, such as Ennio Morricone and Manos Hadjidakis, with their unique songwriting style bringing to mind the likes of Massive Attack and Bjork. Having already extensively toured Europe, the band made the most of COVID restrictions to focus on producing their upcoming record from the comfort of their home studio.
