The vocals on this album, which was self-released in a very [limited edition] last year, will be recorded again by new singer Robbe K (also vocalist of the band DISAVOWED). The final mixing will be done again by Jochem Jacobs, who you already know for his great job at CYPHER's 'Darkday Carnival' and soon on MAGNACULT's debut album 'Synore'."
