I was a bit disappionted by Pray but I still hope the album turns out better than expected. I really like the artwork, but I couldn't here the sample on their myspace... must be my internet...

Well the artwork is quite nice and the song-sample sounds pretty good to me too.

That artwork is great. So is the guitar of that dead guy. I wonder how he plays it while holding that skull, though, since two hands are needed for guitar.

Now I have no idea what is the story behind this one...
But I like them, last few albums were nice so I have good expectations...
... For years I have traveled in coldness,
But my heart is warm as the darkened sun above me...
Nothing can never take away
What I've seen with these tired eyes
