“Wintersend”, “Solstice”, “Wasteland” and “Apparition”

– All of these songs where the result of the photo I used for the album cover. It’s a picture of my grandfathers’ oak tree covered in a rare Texas snow. I found myself constantly staring at this picture when I found it. It took me back to a very chaotic time where peace was hard to find. Back then, it seemed like every time it snowed there was a solemn peace that would befall the land. It seemed like nothing moved and time kept its place, until the sun once again prevailed.
