Jan states: “Of course, the production process was a bit different this time because of the Covid situation; everything had to be done remotely, so Jens [Bogren; producer] wasn’t there to kick our a**es. But overall, the result will stand the test of time a bit better than our previous records in my opinion as it’s even more progressive and even more unpredictable: it’s a bit longer songs and I think even heavier, rhythmically more interesting and a sort of rougher.”
