The first ideas for ‘Phasing Mirrors’ was written after the release of ‘Isolate’ in 2007.
The sound and some of the parts are based on the song ’Mouth of Madness’. 
It is not a direct follow up, but it could fit the darkness that is the ‘Isolate’ album. 
It was later suppose to the be a bonus track on the ‘Nine’ album, but the sound and style did not fit and the song was put on hold. Then after many years we listened to the pre-production and decided that we had to finish it.

‘Endgame’ started with the idea of doing a follow up to one of our most beloved songs from ‘The 1st Chapter’
The one and only ‘Glory of the Empire’
Several parts are re-used in a somewhat different approach. The lyrics are again based on a specific movie/television series. 
The drums were recorded during the ‘Nine’ sessions but the rest of the band was recorded many years later.

‘Isolated Chapters’ is a direct homage to the fans of ’The 1st Chapter & ‘Isolate’
