Description:
- Pit-Art CD
- 16-page booklet

Production information:
- Co-released with Exhumed Records.

Videos:
• Two video lyrics were made for the songs "Los cuerpos en el río" and "Barquero de los muertos".
• A vide clip was made for the song "La danza de los gallinazos".

Additional information:
In this concept album, the band depicts an analogy between the river Acheron ('The River of Woe' from the Greek mythology) and the Colombian river Magdalena, "the biggest mass grave in Colombia", as dead bodies from countless, nameless victims of massacres and assasinaitons were sistematically thrown to its waters by the different armed groups fighting each other during the 60 years of war in the country..

The passage of the dead to Hades is also the passage of the nameless dead, silenced by armed groups and condemned to wander endlessly the shores of the Magdalena river.

Charon, the ferryman of Hades, who carries the souls of the newly deceased across the waters of the river Acheron that divided the world of the living from the world of the dead, is represented by the fishermen of the Magdalena river, in whose nets the dead bodes were often mistaken with the big fishes roaming in the depths of the most important river, and the biggest mass grave in Colombia.
