Regarding how the upcoming album compares to 2011’s critically acclaimed “Encirclement”, vocalist and guitarist Matias Nastolin said:
“Musically “The Last Days Of War” is going to have a little more doom metal influences than “Encirclement” had, perhaps it’s more in the vein of our first release “Devastate”. Nevertheless all of the songs mangle their way forward like a sledgehammer – really heavy, generally mid paced and riff oriented. Even the doomier parts won’t slow the songs down, and we think everything remains interesting from the start to finish.
“The Last Days Of War” is an concept album, telling about some of the last events in both second and first World Wars; battles like the Invasion of Normandy, Battle Of The Bulge, events on the Pacific theatre and the horrors in the fields of Passchendaele. So the lyrical theme still remains close to what it was on “Encirclement”, the focus is on real subjects and history.”
