Yurodivy : Personnage excentrique à l’écart des conventions sociales. Sa folie est ambiguë, et pourrait être réelle ou simulée. Il est en mesure de dire les vérités que d’autres ne peuvent dire, car il n’est soumis à l’autorité et au jugement de personne. Chacun peut être le fou de quelqu’un.

Yurodivy : Eccentric figure who is outside conventional society. His madness is ambiguous, and can be real or simulated. He is able to say truths which others cannot, as a figure not subject to earthly control or judgment. Everybody can be somebody’s fool.

For fans of : Birds In Row, Dillinger Escape Plan, The Prestige, Code Orange

Like a metaphoric tale, the album trace the story of a fish which decided to leave the cold and dark sea bed to swallow the sun and bring it back into the abyss.

The title “Children Of The Sun” captures the division of a people that is facing a system settled by former generations that is now beyond their control. In this tale, it is the moment when the sun, brought on the seafloor as something positive, is dividing everyone. Using material from the Battleship Potemkin movie and linking it with the current state of our society seemed for us a good way to represent the analogy of the lyrics of this song, and, by extension, of the whole disc.

“In The Violence Of The Ashes” is the 8th chapter of Aphos. It is the key moment in the story told in this album. It illustrates our heroin’s journey towards the earth center, a concious fall towards hell, this moment when it becomes necessary to touch the bottom to become aware of real problems.
