Commented the band: "Amazing! We are utterly astonished by the way people have embraced our beloved third jewel, 'Purgatory of the Second Sun'. We humbly thank each and every one of you who have invested in our perception of today's world and the darkest side of humanity. This is a big step for us, it has been a rough ride and it feels somewhat... odd yet rewarding to see people support us in this manner!"
"Purgatory of the Second Sun" was recorded at Fantom studio and is described by the band as "raw and furious. This album has [ten] songs from which 80% is pretty much all out war and the rest 20% is heavy, like walking to the gallows."
