Edited: ROG II will hit
most some streaming services on Friday the 13th of November (including apple music)
Pre-sale for physical handmade CD will start the same day.
The album is an acoustic one just like the original ROG, but while the first one had both original songs as well as stripped down acoustic versions of already existing songs, ROG II is strictly original material.
I was meaning to do the same thing as on the first one but I just couldn’t stop writing new songs. What happened was, I hit a very deep anxiety period where I was just a mess, on the weekends I’d go into my studio with a bottle of wine and just start recording what I was feeling. Sometimes recording 2-3 songs per night, then I didn’t listen to them until I had them all done. The very next day my anxiety was completely gone so this served me as a very good therapy, digging as deep into my darkest corners as I could and just stare the problems straight in the eye. As I heard somewhere: The only way to eliminate darkness is by shining light on it and seeing it for what it really is.
Needless to say, the album is veeeery gloomy and heavy, by far my most melancholic one yet, but I sincerely hope that it might do for others what it did for me.
Anyways, you have been warned 🙂
