"We worked really hard to have this EP to sound refreshing and not so stereotypical like the majority of metalcore records nowadays," says guitarist Andrea Campanelli. "This is the most mature and best release so far for us. From the keyboard sounds, guitar riffs, vocals and drumming we moved a big step forward compared to our previous material and we're totally satisfied with the final result. In my opinion this is one of the most competitive records in the genre today!".

02. Feed The Fire
05. The Speechless
