To the contrary, he has been candidly quoted as saying, "you have to start revving up as you get towards the end of life,” and the title of his previous album, 2019’s Coming Closer To The Day was a self-admitted nod to mortality...
Yet another perfect example of how this band can write short and dense but very commercial prog songs. It’s a common occurrence for a musician to take time away from a band to set-up their own project or to leave a band permanently citing artistic differences. Often, such breaks can be difficult and become conflictual...
