Kurai is a term that I came across almost 20 years ago in a Japanese martial arts encyclopedia. It means to achieve a state of mind in which you become one with your art. That really embraces the sentiment of our music and where we are as artists. We want to create music with the intention of stirring up emotion and bringing some raw passion back to metal and we hope that transcends to the listener with this new EP”

A single from the EP is being prepared for a release around the end of the month.
