Release The Blackness commented:
“Where Voids Gather” deals with how modern society has made people numb and consumed by apathy, allowing younger generations to grow up with a sense of helplessness towards the future. The song is a request from nature itself for mankind to stop caring about futile things and start working together to avoid this foreseeable collapse. With this video we wanted to represent metaphorically how it feels like to care about the destruction of our planet in today’s society, as this problem never seems to be worthy of attention.
Tragedy is a massive sounding record, full of fast technical riffing wrapped in layers of harmonies, ambience and orchestrations. The tracklist makes the album a journey through the experience of sorrow, using recurring musical themes to recreate the repeating and ever-evolving cycles addressed in the lyrics. The most noticeable influences come from bands like Gojira, Beyond Creation, Fit For an Autopsy, Rivers of Nihil, Opeth and many more, including classical music and traditional oriental music.
