Hate Profile focuses the unfocused, blurs the sharp.
A conceptual project about the spiritual resistance to the modern age, depicting the loss of mankind in the colours of controlled chaos. Sounds from a mechanical and materialistic world mix with esoteric soul-search, foreseeing the catastrophe to come in a lucid rant of uneasiness.
A prophecy from our detached Inner Self. The Voice of the Dark Age.
