There are a variety of rhythms throughout the rest of album, but I admit that I found it hard going overall. With so many original compositions, perhaps I will need to listen to it a few more times before I can fully appreciate what is going on.

Lars left due to personal reasons and Atte purely musical.
On 8 February , Tuomas released a video teaser of the album, followed by a second teaser on 21 March. A week later, the first single "Phoenix Rising" was released along with an official video.
