Guitarist Magnus Haugo comments: "The video was filmed over the course of two sessions in a forest just outside of Oslo. We think the video really catches the spirit and the intensity of the song, and we hope people will enjoy it."
Regarding the concept behind the song, he adds: "This song is directly linked to a rage such is felt when confined or oppressed, the wish for revenge, and the consequences connected to enacting revenge. In the concept of the whole album, this is the song where our main character begins his hate fuelled conquest."
According to a press release, the adventure of achieving the perfect sound for The Binding Cycle began in the summer of 2011. The band entered the highly respected Sonic Train studios in Gothenburg, Sweden, with Andy LaRocque (KING DIAMOND) as their sound engineer. After a couple weeks of intense, yet creative work, the material was sent to Dan Swanö (BLOODBATH, EDGE OF SANITY) for the final mix and mastering.
Dan Swanö: “Another example that proves that Scandinavia rule the progressive death metal scene. Dynamic and bombastic, just the way I like it. These guys have a bright future ahead!"
The tracklist is as follows:
'Shades of Oppression'
'Fire Lights the Night'
'Patterns Through Eternity'
'The Tormented One'
'The Binding Cycle'
