On the lyrical themes of the upcoming album ‘What Remained’￼
As you may already know, our upcoming album “What Remained” is not a concept album per se. Most songs, however, share a common theme. Our possible -or should I say- our probable bleak future.
We did not plan this theme for the entire album from the beginning. It somehow developed in that direction over time. Maybe our minds, like the minds of many, are troubled today more than ever with the outcome of our actions in a more or less distant future. Each song deals with a different perspective on the vast topic of our collective future, the ones being more vague, leaving a lot of room for interpretation, the others being more specific, their message directly palpable.
We are aware that we won’t in any way reinvent the wheel by theming an album with dystopian and even post-apocalyptic themes. It’s merely our statement that we -as human beings- are concerned about the ongoings in a world that echoes slowly but surely in the global events, that we have to rethink our ways and if we want to stay here for longer, we have to tread new paths and search for new solutions.
An admittedly dark-themed album like this is only the result of too much musings on such distressing topics.
Giving nothing further away for now, for those who are interested to know more about the lyrical aspect of the album, you’ll have the possibility of diving into the lyrics once the release.
