“Erin” on A God Among Insects was actually the inspiration for most of the tracks in this set. All the vocal tracks for The Battle of Ecliptylae were recorded in an attic with a temperature of 5°C, not by choice, simply due to limitations.
The lyrics in The Battle of Ecliptylae series have a great impact on the listener. Though explicit lyrics aren’t used, your ears are drawn to certain words that were chosen wisely, similar to the lyrics in “Erin” on A God Among Insects. Year 1 speaks of emotion, the same emotion that drives us at an early age to fight, to speak our minds. The messages within the lyrics, heavily inspired by the ongoing economic depression, are direct and optimistic. However, man does change over time, what makes the words he says at the end of his journey so special…is the comparison of what words he said at the beginning.
