Commented band leader Mister: "We were looking very carefully for a new business partner 'cause we wanted to be sure that we chose the best possible option. We received several offers from European labels but we finally decided to pick Polish label. We were aware of Witching Hour actions and development and we are absolutely sure that our cooperation will be perfect and will bring measureable effects in long term."
Witching Hour owner Bartek Krysiuk added: "I'm glad to have TRAUMA in growing 'family' of Witching Hour bands. I have the opportunity to visit Hertz Studio often and listen to new albums in early phase of creation — that's how it was this time and how new TRAUMA music enchanted me. Many people think that TRAUMA is one of the most underrated death metal bands. Having such amazing album as 'Archetype Of Chaos', we'll do our best to give them recognition they deserve!!!"
