The inner grief changes him, imperceptibly, cruelly, tearing him and scarring his psyche. Everyone knows the feeling of powerlessness, at first timid, then with force flooding our consciousness, unstoppable and mercilessly. The wave ebbs, leaving behind a trembling, naked body, the worst is yet to come: fear … ».
More, «With titles like Akardos (Heartless), Solitude and especially the title track Psychosis, we enter a personal universe of grief, loneliness, doubt that many people know. With Psychosis awakens maybe a truth that we repressed … but also hope, power and confidence. Sober Truth takes us on a mental rollercoaster ride that lets the last track roll out congenially. We’re changing every day, all our lives. The new album picks up where we start to repress. ‘Psychosis’ looks at our scarred psyche and tells our story».
