"We made the first song after the moment when I moved from my hometown to Lviv and it was “..You’re Talking By Runes..”. Maybe 3 months ago was born the second track “The Sad Moon Is Rising In the Sky” after this we had a long pause for one year. In the end of summer 2016 we’re started work on new material and in Autumn all songs were done and I’ve started work on mixing and mastering." /Zymobor
