Song by song. Part 1
I’d like to introduce you all titles from the upcoming album and share some short stories with you.
Here we go!
Track 01: “GRAVITY”
𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝒋𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒏𝒆𝒚 𝒃𝒆𝒈𝒊𝒏𝒔!
“Gravity” describes us all as human beings and shows the world as it is.
It offers us many things and opportunities to reach the goals. To do this, you have to “break the chain of fear … breathe in and jump against gravity”. Is it that simple?
This is one of the first songs we recorded in 2017 in Marios’ basement. We were very happy with the result. About a year later, when we listened to it again, we decided to delete this record completely and start again. The quality was shit . I mean, really crappy… Drums, guitar sound, vocals…. literally everything!
But Mario improved his recording skills so fast that we re-recorded it for the third time – I think even a year later, because we listened to it again . Also, my voice was getting better and better, so we almost started from scratch. This time we cut some guitar and vocal parts and tried to keep the song simple and listenable.
Now it’s awesome and you’ll love it .

Track 02: “HEAVY POISONS”.
Only one correct opinion, endless advertisements for food, cars, gadgets and medicines. TV is one of the strongest poisons forcing people to move less and stagnate.
Every human being by its very structure and essence simply needs movement, physical activity and action, otherwise society will completely fall into oblivion.
What is to be done?
Track 03: “NATURAL BEING”.
We are all very different, we have our own goals, plans and mindset, but we are all in the same boat. It is important to respect, support and listen to each other. If we don’t, we quickly turn into animals and become self-destructive.
Is that really in our nature?
„Follow the instincts and follow your heart,
Turn your life into hell or into art.“
Track 04: “HUNTER”
Each of us is a hungry hunter. Someone is hunting for food, someone for knowledge. Do you feel trapped in your own cage? It’s time to rediscover your reality and expand it. And don’t hesitate to ask for help!
I wrote this song in 2014. It just came out in full while jamming at home. I was so glad I had put my mp3 player in record mode before I started jamming. It was definitely a song for the next album.
You’ll notice that some parts sound like “Tool” or “A perfect circle”, BUT the interesting thing is that I didn’t discover those bands for myself until almost a year later. That was a strange but funny feeling. I felt like I was on the right track, but inventing a new style of music should continue 😂.
In 2015 or 2016 we played the song once to see how it worked live. After that we never played it live again 😄 When we start preparing for the 2023 shows, this song will definitely be on the list.

Track 05: “SINCE THE FIRST SONGS”
They say people learn from the past, but when you look at events in the world today, the statement is hard to believe.
How about letting go of the past?
Life changes every second and what worked 20-30 years ago no longer works today. Even yesterday’s decision can have a completely different meaning today.
What makes you fight against new challenges in old and familiar ways again and again and not see them as creative opportunities for your growth?
This song was the most challenging of all. The instruments were quickly done, but this one damn vocal part drew me and Mario crazy. It just doesn’t work how I imagined it in my head. Mario was really patient (thanks dude!!! 💆♂️). I was really struggling. I guess, after 3 or 5 sessions my ego finally surrendered 😂. Mario was really supportive and creative as well…. actually as always! His new ideas let everything work. Thanks man! 💪
This song showed me how the challenges can be solved with fresh and creative solutions.
