Commented the band: "We've spent such a huge amount of time on defining a darker identity, yet open to a wider range of influences. Those tracks still haunt us, as delivering them was a painful and excruciating experience, and left some of us even physically wounded... Which gives that album even more of a spiritual value, as it involved a form of sacrifice." They added: "This fourth full-length release is without a doubt a great step forward for us in term of music writing, and sound.""IV: Arrow In Heart"
consists of 6 original tracks with a running time of 56 minutes.
The track listing for the CD is as follows:
01. An Arrow in Heart
02. One With The Prince With A Thousand Enemies
03. Temple of Knowledge
