They decided to create a conceptual anonymous project, revealing the gloomy side of human nature.
Thus, having returned to the society and having assembled a team of professional experienced musicians, they recorded an album in 2019, the mixing and mastering of which was made by Filippos Koliopanos (Ocean Of Grief, Greece).

The vocalist of the Minsk death / doom project Beyond The Darkness Mikhail Stefanovich was also invited to cooperate, as well as some other musicians, who wish to remain anonymous.
