"Gnosis" offers nine tracks of thoroughly modern progressive metal that has as many hooks as it does important political messages. The title refers to a higher level of spiritual understanding where one stops to answer the questions about one's existence rather than ignoring the issues and simply following the crowd. The message is simple: don't believe everything you're told; think for yourself.
The release of "Gnosis" will be supported by the 1st installment of the Euroblast Tour:
