Commented the band: "Compared to our previous effort, 'Fragments of a Withered Dream', the material on the coming album is faster and more intense and as far as the production goes, it is way heavier! Furthermore, a choir with 45 singers paid us a visit in the studio to record som parts for a few of the songs, and the result turned out very grandiose."
COMPOS MENTIS' debut album, "Fragments of a Withered Dream", was released in January 2003 via Lost Disciple Records.
