Recording information:

When not counting most of the compositions and lyrics which were made earlier, creation of this
album took place somewhere between August 2014 and May 2015. Pretty much everything was
done in "studio" called Janne's apartment with a really crappy recording equipment. Couple of
other not-so-professional locations were also used for recording vocals and some of the guitar
solos.

More professional approach were used with these parts of the creation process:
Drums recorded at Biotech Audio Solutions.
Mastering done at Nordic Audio Labs.
