Says, «Months ago we were thinking about what to do differently to present our new album Apocalypse Now. Unfortunately, the news ruthlessly suggested the answer!».
«Coppola’s masterpiece and Conrad’s novel Heart Of Darkness (to which the film is loosely based) speak of man’s inexplicable need to overpower his brothers through old and new forms of murderous colonialism».
«Every time the darkness takes over completely blackening our divided heart “Heaven weeps the tears of God”, quoting one of the central phrases of our latest work».
«This is our Cuore Di Tenebra (Heart Of Darkness), this is Apocalypse Now and this is what we must always and relentlessly fight!».
