I created this angst, pessimistic demo in 2,011, when I was 21 years old and just got dumped. I never "finished" this demo because for one, I realized I was a pretty terrible rapper, and for two, I got back into metal around 2,012 ended up fusing it with amnaeon.
When I say that I never "finished" this demo, I mean it quite literally. A couple songs have rap verses where my vocals just cut out because I never finished recording the vocals, a couple only have the chorus, and others are totally finished. Most of these songs have evolved into music that I am still working with on Hungry Lights, and I will probably use a lot of these instrumentals and a few lyrics for a new rap project I am working on.

There really was not much of a story for this album. It was mostly me venting my emotions, because I was very depressed and angry and lost after a bad breakup. But as the album progressed, I ended up turning it into a dark fantasy that I had about breaking into my ex-girlfriend's house, killing her, and burying her in a public place. After I got the taste of blood, I was torn on whether or not I wanted to keep doing it, and eventually get myself caught by the police so that I do not hurt anybody else. The whole album is just very negative.
Fun fact: I chose the name, "General Reem" as a rapper name from the song, "The Underpinning Of General Reem." At the time it was not a character in the story. It was just the name I chose for the song.
Fun fact: When I started working on this album was also when I started being good friends with Rob Dyke.
