About "Age of Supremacy":
the idea behind the concept of the album ‘Age of Supremacy’ is the history of mankind that left the earth 1000 years ago and is now divided into two
factions that evolved in different ways.
The children of Heron built the 'City of Light', a planet machine that was the basis of a civilization that wants to preserve the species and built intelligent machines to scan the universe in search of resources. In a different quadrant evolved the civilization of Mossh. A big misunderstanding is at the root of a fratricidal war that puts in contrast the two civilizations, an intangible entity causes a form of madness and threatens the two peoples which will give the blame to each other.
The story is not based on the fight between good and evil but rather the inability of communication between two peoples in the distant and hypothetical future, as often happens today. This is the reason of war and destruction.
Metal Observer :
"With equal focuses on speed and melody, it’s definitely one of the most solid all-around albums I’ve heard this year... the songwriting chops, the talents of Borrelli, and the catchy riffing all make this one of the most enjoyable albums this year, and definitely the most surprising one so far." (8,5 / 10)
