- Vernissage Riccardo Giovanni Patriarca
This my last appearance in Karnak, perhaps the title of the album has something meaningful in it.
I left the band right after that Copro Records UK published this album in 2010, due to personal and musical different ideas.
This album is structured somehow like Pestilence’s Testimony Of The Ancients: there is an alternation of intros and actual songs.
The lyrics are all about medieval tortures and music took inspiration from the classic brutal death metal acts of all times, nonetheless the classic Karnak sound is still present in the music.
The two heads of the artwork are taken from a classic Bruegel picture, with the courtesy and licence of the museum that host the original art.
