I created this demo in 2,013. The sound of this album was created from combining the original amnaeon sound with that of Wolfpit Drive, General Reem, Drudgework, and Mt. Krell. Originally, I had planned to release five albums under amnaeon, each keeping to the roots of its original project, but blanketed in the amnaeon/Drudgework sound. Aorta Borealis IV was to be the combination of every single album's sound, all in one album, that way, people would not think that I "changed" my sound, as every experiment that I had planned was already introduced in this album.

This demo is where The Mourn started to get really complex. Because I ended up scrapping the project, this demo is technically "part three" of The Mourn.
For the most part, it follows the same formula as Aorta Borealis, but when I combined the sounds of all my projects into one, I also combined the stories, and I had to change a few things up. Reflaugh from Wolfpit Drive became Arilayah's brother, simply so that the sequel would have some continuity to this.
Also, the main characters went from being anti-humans to being "proamates" which were essentially reptile-humanoid creatures. In this album, I also introduced "the natiffs" which were raccoon people, and "the kirth" which were fish people. The Maker and Fothcrah also live in a place called, "The Undergrowth" which is basically the core of this giant floating space rock called, "Everything That Exists."
In this part, a man named "Kar'tahn," who suffers from amnesia, goes around doing a lot of evil shit, and gets away with it. When his master (The Maker) finds out, he punishes him. Kar'tahn escapes and tries to bring down a vengeful hand on The Maker, but when he cannot do it, he kills himself.
Fun fact: This album cover was loosely based off the album cover from amnÆon's "Everything That Exists."
Fun fact: The background of the breakdown of The Default Illusion features a news report from a character-personality I created named, "Clyde Murphy."
