I created this demo in 2,014. The sound of this album was supposed to be the usual "amnaeon" sound, but blanketed with the rap essence of the original General Reem, and some electronic influence from Drudgework.

Once General Reem became a part of The Mourn, I had to create a whole new story for it. This demo became the prequel to "The Proamates III." I had a lot of plans for this project that I never ended up pursuing, so this demo is now "part one" of The Mourn.
The saga begins with a kid named, "Reem" who witness his father being murdered, which plants a seed of hatred in his heart. He gains a great power, abuses it by starting a vengeful war, and kills himself instead of taking his punishment at the hand of The Maker.
Fun fact: The Fall Of Eair'tra was originally supposed to be on Mt. Krell, but was moved over because I did not want to change them, and I felt that the song represented the chaos of Reem's war.
Fun fact: In every case where my music has a story involved, the music comes first. The story was always inspired by whatever random lyrics flowed out of me while listening to the instrumental. Once the continuity was formed, I would go back and refine the lyrics to fit the story.
Fun fact: I never changed my guitar or bass strings while recording Aorta Borealis IV - The Proamates III - Wolfpit Drive V - General Reem II. If you listen carefully, you can hear the quality start to get muddier each album, especially in the acoustic guitar.
