sounds made with the time we have...

"The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry."
-Ernest Hemingway

lyrics- done!

All the lyrics are finally written, thanks to the mistake of writing a stanza that didn’t fit with the initial song, but realizing it would work perfectly for the other song I had left.



since it’s been a while, here’s the fill in on what’s happening…

first off, the EP idea has evolved into an outright full length- and we’re sticking with the theme and title we were already going to go with.  Things have progressed extremely well and eleven songs are now up and ready to be carved out.

Writing has begun for several of the songs, thanks entirely to friend and bandmate J… There are two more lyrics for me to write and then that aspect of the album will be entirely looked after.

Additionally, we have decided to move past the whole “post rock / black metal” label we had initially placed on this, we still will predominantly play within these styles as it’s what we enjoy, but folk-ish part and a couple more technical, almost death metal riffs have come around that we thought fit the feel of certain songs extremely well.

We’ll be talking to you again as soon as we have some more news!

love, SAtA

EP title decided, tracklisting being finalized

we’ve named the EP we are to begin working on:
"The Structures Inside of Ghosts"
