About The track:

The song "Holy Killer" begins with a dark orchestral intro that was inspired by anything that is kept away in the dark, like the bottom of the deepest oceans. It is followed by relatively a simple chord progression with brutal screaming vocals, that then goes into a soft clean guitar interlude accompanied by a Mellotron, after which the song goes into full death metal mode. It's the only song where we have dual solos between guitars and keyboards, almost like a conversation between the two of them. The song then ends with an outro that repeats a few times but builds up in terms of the vocals and orchestral layers.

Lyrically, this song is about someone who dies and is in limbo or in search of the afterlife he was promised by the gods he worships, but is instead brought to hell to atone for the evil deeds he performed throughout his life in the name of the very religion he worshipped.

About the album:

Musically, the album is a blend of our favorite elements from progressive metal, technical death metal, death metal, and symphonic/power metal. There are some very heavy/dark riffs, some very grandiose/more epic sections with lots of orchestral instruments, as well as lighter/cleaner sections with clean vocals. From these various elements, the pacing of the album is that of a rollercoaster ride in terms of intensity, but we definitely lean much more toward the heavier side than the lighter side overall. The song structures are very progressive, with fewer repeating parts, though we do use repetition, and if we don’t we bring back similar melodic or rhythmic ideas throughout songs to make them feel more like complete pieces of music. Our goal with the songs is to make listeners feel an overwhelming urge to headbang to the heavier sections, feel the strong emotions of the more grandiose/epic sections, and feel the mysterious energy of the cleaner/more laid-back sections.

Lyrically, the songs on the album are broadly about us trying to understand death, both as a tragedy and a natural part of life, the pain it brings, and the resilience that can be born from it. This can mean the physical death of an individual, our planet, the universe, or a person’s internal fire and lust for life. We use storytelling in some songs as a vehicle for this, and since we love fantasy media, the content of these stories has fantasy elements, while also weaving in deeper concepts of death, hardship, regret, and growth. Other songs revolve around historical figures, while others are mostly metaphorical, but all are linked together by this exploration of all aspects of death.
